    • 4.5 starsI normally don't start reading Christmas books until at least after Thanksgiving. But this is Jocelynn Drake, author of the Unbreakable Bonds series and one of my favorite books of 2016, Shatter.So, an exception was made and I dove in for some Christmas cheer.Spencer is your stereotypical gay millionaire with no time for dating or romance. He picks up men in bars for one-night-stand sex. And nothing else.Evan is a man with a broken heart, for more reasons than one, who is SO OVER the on [...]


    • Very sexy read with a satisfying ending! I loved Evan, and Spenser was quite a softie beneath the cold, jaded exterior. Spencer's family, minus the bigoted grandpa, was wonderful. There was some drama with Spenser being unable (unwilling?) to stand up for Evan and their relationship, but the angst didn't overwhelm the story. This was my first book by this author, but I don't think it will be the last.


    • Okay, brace yourselves. Here comes the gushing. I absolutely LOVED this story, which was pretty damn near perfect, in my opinion. I was in the mood for something happy and light, which is precisely what the book delivered.Seeing Spencer and Evan spending time together was electric on page, despite Spencer's claim that he doesn't date and Evan's claim that he doesn't do one night stands.From the diner scene on the first night that they met, you could just tell that, given a chance, these two guys [...]



    • ***4.5 Stars***I loved it! I loved it! I loved it! And yes, I totally sang that out loud #idontcareThis was such a great holiday story. After reading the blurb, I was expecting this to feel kinda cookie-cutterld, rich guy and endearing starving artist all wrapped up in a fake relationship tropebut what I got was the opposite. Spenser (I never did get used to the spelling of his name - it just looks weird to me?) may have started off as this distant, no strings, one and done, rich guy, but that d [...]


    • I am not a very big fan of Christmas stories. I like Christmas just fine, it's just that Christmas books, usually just don't do it for me.My dear friend Susan however, told me that this one wasn't really Christmassy. Since I am such a good friends and because this book was written by Jocelynn Drake, (one of my favorite authors this year) I decided to give this one a try !!I'm very pleased that I did. This was a very nice, short, uncomplicated sweet and steamy story. It takes place around Christm [...]


    • 4.5 Stars!This was my favorite holiday read so far. Yeah was my first holiday read. But I've read 2 others since and this one is still my favorite. :)Would've been a full 5 stars without the ex Jerid incident at the end. Likable characters, likable storyline, good steam, low angst!


    • A certain Gallic Cheesy Elf (who is out of control in the best way!) gifted this book to me today, so I am going to give it a read right the frak now. :)Thank you, GCE!!!! <3------Review--------This story isn't at all what I expected (in all the best ways) from reading the first chapter. At first, I was thinking I was going to be reading yet another rich, spoiled guy who can't take no for an answer and a more modest guy who gives in just because it is easier. That is not what I got (#ThankThe [...]


    • ****4.5 Stars****Wow! How could a book so short deliver such a great impact?Instalove is usually a thanks, but no thanks to me.Why it sometimes works is a damn mystery!Walking on Thin Ice was a winner: well-developed characters, great plot, fantastic chemistry and a realistic story-line.Loved it!Thank you Ariana for making me read a Xmas story <3 


    • OMG! I'm the only person who didn't like this. AGAIN! I just have to accept and embrace the fact that I don't mesh with this author. I can't exactly pinpoint it but there's an MF vibe in her books, a heteronormativity I can't explain.I didn't like the characters nor did I get their actions. Evan doesn't do hookups, but he's all over Spenser and accepts his weird proposal just like that. Spenser doesn't do relationships but he's all over Evan too, whom he never treated as a simple hookup. And I d [...]


    • 3.5 starsI liked this! Although the drama felt a bit…. off…Spenser is the CFO in his family’s company. He is a bit of a cold, calculated man. But once he sees Evan in a club, he knows he has to have him. But Evan tells him no. “Yeah, I’m done with the hook-up scene. Took me a while, but I think I’m a good enough guy to deserve tomorrow, too.”The two end up having dinner at a diner and really hit it off. Even though Spenser doesn’t want anything more than a hookup, he invites Evan [...]


    • 4,5 starsI really loved this one! Before starting it, all I knew about this book would be that it's a Christmas novella. I refrained from reading the blurb or other reviews. Sometimes I love diving in clueless. “It’s just that no one ever…”No one ever took their time. No one ever cared whether he was truly satisfied. Spenser knew that was what he meant. And in truth, Spenser had never made such an effort before. So he allowed himself another first. He leaned in and slowly kissed Evan, me [...]


    • I really like Jocelynn Drake 'Unbreakable Bonds' series, so I had high expectations for this Christmas story. Which, as my rating gives away, were all fulfilled and more.I adored both MCs right from the beginning in equal measures. Both men are wonderfully drawn, and the dual POV helps to fully understand their actions.Tall, dark, unapproachable Spenser and his snarky sense of humour appealed immediately. God, I loved his sass and the way he makes clear what he wants. *gulp* He reminded me a lit [...]


    • Dear book,thank you for giving me some early, but much needed holiday feelz!I will cut it short:Great and very enjoyable holiday read - sometimes cute and heart-warming, sometimes sexy - that will put you in just the right mood, with absolutely loveable characters like Spenser who doesn't dateand Evan who doesn't do hookupsYou see, just the right premises ;-)Add some banter, great side characters, a fake-boyfriend trope and a bit hurt/comfort and I'm hooked. I just love my boys with a sometimes [...]


    • 4 Christmas Stars!You know what? This deserves all the kudos it’s already received, as this was certainly a fantastic holiday read!To reiterate, powerful successful and filthy rich Spenser, should by all rights be happy and ready to spend the holidays with his family along with a special someone but there’s just one hitch. He must hide who he is to avoid a family scandal and hence he’s become cold, calculated and closed off to any possible relationships. That is until he meets Evan. Evan c [...]


    • Winner, winner [Christmas] Chicken Dinner!! 5 stars rounded up from me. Great feel-good read from Jocelynn, fake boyfriend trope, bigoted arse of a grandfather, accepting and awesome family members. In the middle of it all, Spenser Roland, CFO of his family's company but in the closet as far as his grandfather is concerned, cos he doesn't want to rock the boat for his immediate family members and Evan Scott, kicked out his home at 17 and now a successful artist and graphic designer. They meet on [...]


    • 4.5 StarsI just smashed this Christmas read out in one sitting, so yes, you could say I enjoyed this immensely! I was hesitant going in, having never read a book by Drake before, but my worries were completely unwarranted. She's clearly a solid writer, who was able to create two charmingly honest and engaging characters who I instantly swooned over. The MCs, Spenser and Evan - great names btw - shared some seriously palpable chemistry, which resulted in entertaining banter, incredible sex and si [...]





    • 4 stars just because I totally fell for the sweetness of this book. Spencer doesn’t allow himself to have fun and go for a relationship because he takes his responsibilities as a CFO way too much at heart. Just before going back home for the Christmas festivities, he meets Evan at a bar and, much to his surprise and despite being turned down by Evan, asks him to come with him as his boyfriend. And Evan, having been shut down by his family for being gay and, let’s be honest, being hugely attr [...]


    • Great Christmas story! I really enjoyed this one!Spenser, the only-one-night-stands-guy falls for Evan, who doesn't do hookups and definitely deserves a tomorrow.4,5 stars


    • This was a great way to start the reading portion of my Christmas Season.I am super proud of myself. I said I'd wait until December to start and I did wait until December to start. It wasn't easy. There were Christmas trees up in Walmart before Halloween and all the bloggers have been reading Christmas for a few weeks now. So yeah, Christmas has been in my face for quite some time.I'm glad I waited until my tree was up and I am super glad that I started with this story. Although this wasn't over [...]


    • Overall book rating: 4.5 You are my tomorrow Stars Audio book: N/A Book Cover: 3.5 Stars MC1: Evan MC2: Spenser"Then think of it as a date."Spenser's expression changed in a heartbeat, becoming frighteningly distant and cold. Evan could swear he heard the brick wall slam down between them. "I don't date.""Shoving his hand through his hair, Spenser turned and paced away from the door, cursing himself. He had no idea what to say, was positive it would never work, and yet he still couldn't get hims [...]


    • 4 StarsMy first holiday themed book of this Christmas season, definitely got off to a good start. I really enjoy this author and this book was no exception.


    • De las historias navideñas que más me han gustado, probablemente porque tenía detrás más cosas que la Navidad. Me han encantado los protagonistas. Muy recomendable.



    • Without doubt the best whole-relationship-develops-over-a-short-space-of-time book I have ever read without even a hint of instalove about it. Wonderfully rich characters with a great dynamic, we get to see different sides of each man which doesn't feel rushed despite relatively quick glances of back stories. It's how a story on the shorter side should be - has the feel and authenticity of a much longer tale but let's you consume it at a frantic pace to a beautifully satisfying conclusion.Will b [...]



    • Love, gruff, fluff, and heat!I loved this novella. Loved it. It was well written, the characters were far from hollow. The secondary characters were great. The action flowed. Even though we didn't have the time to learn everything about them, you knew there was more. Spenser is just a grumpy bear of a hunk who wants nothing to do with relationships. Evan is a soulful, beautiful artist who is done with one night stands. You can guess what happens, right? And it happens in such a sweet, tension-fi [...]
