I enjoyed this quick, holiday read and it would make a great addition to your holiday story line up.
These two are filled with miscommunication and noncommunication. They have known each other for so long that they are both presumptuous in what the other is thinking and hesitant to ask for sure. So, when Riley and Stan reconnect over a holiday, Riley knows it is just for a holiday fling and not a second chance at a life with his one true love. There have just been too many years between them, too many hurts, and too many miles. So, holiday fling it is and everything between them is just as explosive and perfect as it had always been.
That does sound a bit angsty, but it really isn't. Plus, there is a seagull and a dancing Santa for comic relief so things do not get too heavy.
We don't get many details into their past relationship with each other, but we know that toward the end they probably had lost the ability to communicate their needs to each other effectively, both wanting what they wanted and not being able to reach a compromise which led to them parting. Even if they both were still in love with each other.
The story is from Riley's POV. Had we gotten a dual point of view I think I may have warmed up to Stan a bit quicker. As it is, I felt like there was a lot of compromise on Riley's part and not as much give on Stan's part. But, Riley ends up having an epiphany on his future (it is really difficult to recover from a broken heart when said heart was still broken from the first go round) and they get the HEA. The epilogue really drove home that these two were going to make it, so happy sigh.
Merry Gentlemen is a wonderful, fun way to get your mind and soul ready for the holiday season. I loved this story when I read it a few years back and probably loved it even more now. With a couple of thousands books in this genre under my belt or on my Kindle you get to appreciate true gems. Gems with an everlasting value. Josephine Myles is one of those authors who deliver quality in everything they do. Merry Gentlemen is no exception.
The characters, the humour, the style, these all add up to a fantastic read. When you remember almost every scene from a few years distance, you know you get something memorable. All the details from the Christmas market to Scrappy, the seagull from the Santa costume to the office party striptease has its own place and function here.
I absolutely love our MCs as well. I especially enjoy stories with a couple who broke up for whatever reason and still love each other. What happens when the love of your life appears one day five years after he walked out of your life. Yep, you guessed it right, this is a wonderful example of a second chances romance. Done beautifully. Stan and Ri share some explosive chemistry, a deep connection with amazing feelings even after five years apart and their longing for each other is truly palpable.
I love how nothing is rushed. The story has a great pace, everything has its time to develop and the humour that is woven into the story along the way give an extra layer of awesomeness to this read.
Merry Gentlemen is a heartwarming love story of two guys who need to find a common ground to be able to live together in all the happiness they deserve. This book will give you sparks of the holiday spirit in no time. Have fun. Highly recommended.
