How could he do this to me?
I thought me and my ex really had something together. And then I find out he’s been cheating on me for months. I mean, we were supposed to move in together, for crying out loud! And to think, I was going to surprise him by taking him to the shelter to adopt that dog he’s always wanted. It was my Christmas gift to him.
Well, jokes on him, because I’m going to adopt a dog anyway. What better way to get through a break up, right? And, well, when I meet a cute shelter employee named Gene I’m definitely not disappointed. I’m not sure it’ll actually lead to anything but there’s nothing wrong with some harmless rebound flirting, right?
It’s been a long time since I’ve been open to dating again.
After my ex dumped me brutally years ago, I’ve become pretty closed off when it comes to meeting new guys. I just don’t want to end up hurt like I did before. Plus the animal shelter keeps me really busy these days. Someone has to be there for these dogs.
So when I meet Eli, I’m a little nervous. He’s not only very attractive but also incredibly kind. I can see myself really falling for a guy like him. But I can also really see myself getting my heart ripped out by him… And I’m not sure if exploring a relationship is really worth it. Even if he does love Christmas time as much as I do.
This standalone MM Christmas romance is currently on sale for .99 and comes complete with HEA ending and bonus material from two of my other books!
Unfortunately this wasn’t as good as I expected. The character were… troublesome sometimes… I couldn’t get really warm with them… and this way I had hard times to understand the actions. A few actioons seem to be exaggerated. Some character behave a bit high and mighty…
There was also a bit too much drama in the story and sometimes I doubt the character motivation…
It is hard to really grab the feeling I had while reading, it’s not it was a bad story though it wasn’t a really great one. Basic average.
The most charming fact was the dog Eli got himself.
