What is not to love about this story, T.E Ridener brings to life a family dealing with the lows and the highs. She shows us how Kasen's Mum has changed since we first met her and that the couples friend Jessica who helped them be excepted by the town find the happiness she deserves.
I throughly look forward to read Jessica's story when it comes out.
While this is a male/male relationship with some sex season- like the first book its all about the love between two people, I highly recommend reading the first book Chartreuse first.
The Kasen and Rowan story picks up 6 years after the end of Chartreuse story, so if you're the kind that doesn't like spoilers you want to read that one first.
They're now married and looking to adopt.
It also has Jessica who didn't exactly have a perfect relationship earlier on, either. But now she also has someone who treats her like she deserves.
It is an m/m read, but that kind of thing doesn't bother me at all. In fact the romantic scenes were just as good as (and in many cases better than) half the "books" out there today that so desperately want to be in the "erotic" category...
It's a rather short novella, but enjoyable. I like that the family dynamic is explored, and no relationship is perfect, no matter who the people are or what sexual orientation they might be. Every person and relationship has highs and lows, and explore their lives around Christmas time.
Of all the negative crap out there (some "books" included), this is a fun, positive, and enjoyable read :D
T.E. Ridener has created characters that are easy to cheer for. And, she made me cry. Twice.
This book is way outside my genre (it is a gay romance and 18+ for content), but the author has completely hooked me with her characters and I can't help but come back to find out how things work out for them. Rowan and Kasen's love for each other and those around them is powerful and sweet, and the message of hope and acceptance continues to ring true with each addition to the series.
The book is 18+ for sexual content.
I love it when authors write wonderful books that pull me in and make me think about the characters and what they are doing long after I have flipped past THE END. Kasen and Rowen were two such characters for me. After Chartreuse I have thought about them many times, almost fan-ficcing in my own head how their lives would play out.
What I love even more than good books are when authors drop AWESOME little short stories in our laps like treats from the story fairy that let us glimpse a few more times through the veil and into their world again. These little stories are so much better than novellas, because it just means that a beloved author can write EVEN MORE of them. :)
I cried several times, I got flustered and red in the face too... I laughed and hoped and loved... just like Kasen and Rowen. Totally worth it, great short read, and even better than advertised.
The jump of six years seems a bit too long, because obviously much has happened in the meantime, things that are not too well described. But the story, although short, is sweet. Kaden and Rowan are married and have applied for adoption of a child. Even though they still love each other fiercely, their life is no easy sailing (many marriages have a seven-year-crisis). There is the issue with a dying dog, problems with performance and wondering if there is a child for them in the future.
But this is almost as a Christmas miracle - lots of snow, a girl, a new dog and not least a cat awaiting around the corner. And even mother's new boyfriend seems to be better person than Kaden had feared.
This Christmas, will be the best of Christmases. A little miracle comes into their lives, which causes another miracle to happen.
Have you read Chartreuse first? If not, I suggest you also get that book. It is the first one which will tell you the story about two men who will do anything to be together. The love that grows between them, follows even stronger in This Christma
You will not find explicit sex between these two. What you will find, is mad passionate love. Beautifully written by a beautiful woman.
