Third person POV’s for both characters suited my preferences and kept the narrative moving along. A story lacking any sort of major conflict, homophobia or family issues was a pleasant experience, and welcome in a holiday tale. Yet it’s not sappy or sugary in the least, just warm, fuzzy and touching. It’s set around the Christmas season but it suited this Grinch-y reader and didn’t try to drown me in holiday spirit. I enjoyed the very English setting and flavour (see what I did there!) in the narrative, with its rather low-key, gentle delivery. Living in the southern US, I also liked getting my chills and snow from visuals inspired by words, not actual weather! I would very much recommend this story, especially for the critter loving crowd.

Ben has grown up quite a bit since he was a young boy who was crushing on Jason -Liam's oldest brother- and it was nice to see both him and Jason realize time had changed them both for the better. I liked Ben's sense of joy in the little things. I enjoyed seeing him realize Jason was even more desirable as a man who now has a successful career as a veterinarian rescuing animals than he was as a college student who was forbidden to teenage Ben.
Jason is wonderful. I loved his dedication to his work. I especially loved how he didn't seem to be either a dog or a cat person and instead an animal person. It's rare to find people like that. I loved how he saved "Socks" the cat. I wouldn't have been able to resist the three-legged rascal myself. I can't volunteer at animal shelters without knowing I'll come home with all the cats. It was nice to see this isn't an uncommon feeling even for people who make the care of animals their livelihood.
Not Just for Christmas has a wonderful ending with an epilogue set a year later which features another kitten rescue. I would recommend it to anyone who likes heartwarming reads, animals, friends-to-lovers, and stories set in England since this one is overflowing with Britishisms. I read this in February so it's proof the story is also not just a Christmas story. It's the kind to warm the heart year round.
