I have to say this book, with the setting in Icelan had a better development than book one,  A Cop for Christmas. I enjoyed this nice and solid story and was mesmerized by the cultural differences between Sam and Arnar.

The book is actually full of descriptions about the country, the surroundings play a major part and give the story its flow.

I liked that this book was queally sweet and emotional, full of funny scenes, and Arnar as the grumpy, first cold appearing Icelander was a nice add to the story. Soon it’s clear that Arnar isn’t the distant guy, the rough guy, although he isn’t soft, he has his shy sides. More and more Sam is exploring him – in different ways and I really enjoyed the chemistry and the feelings both guys have for each other.

You may think this book doesn’t come with an happy end but there is one and I loved it. ❤ It’s definitely a nice Christmas story without being overly cheesy and with the new setting to Iceland it’s  – literally – a fresh wind. 🙂 4 out of 5 stars because of some lacks here and there.

I wanted to enjoyed it more than 4 stars but unfortunately it wasn’t the case. It doesn’t mean the book is bad, of course not, it had a pretty nice with interesting characters, I really liked next to the two main characters Mason and Steve, Mason’s brother Kade, with his suprising secret and his unique style.

Unfortunately the most difficulties did I have had with the tempo of the book. It was a bit fast for my liking and & I wish it wasn’t kind of a HFN. I had the feeling an epilogue was missing, so 20 or 30 pages more and it would have been better for the whole development. Their story isn’t even directly continued in the next book, A Viking for Yule, with Sam and his hot, sexy Icelander Arnar as main characters.

The book had funny scenes, was full of emotional but as I said, a few pages and I would have enjoyed it even more. It was still a solid story, the two characters, Mason and Steve are pretty nice displayed, their differences are palpable and they are like opposites attract. 4 out of 5 stars for this story. I guess I’ll grab other books by the author too because I wasn’t overly disappointed and the writing was solid. 🙂

AFTER SAM’S GRANDFATHER nearly died in a blizzard one year ago, Sam has panic attacks in snow storms. So where does his friend Jackie propose they spend the holidays, as the last stop on their trip around the world?

Iceland. Of course.

But there’s more in Iceland than snow. When Arnar, a handsome Icelandic man, offers to escort Sam on a several-day tour of the beautiful countryside, they soon find themselves drawn to each other. But Arnar is firmly rooted in his native soil, and Sam has to return to the US in a week to care for his ailing grandfather.

Suddenly, yule can’t last nearly long enough.

Author bio  – Jamie Fessenden

Jamie Fessenden is an author of gay fiction in many genres. Most involve romance, because he believes everyone deserves to find love, but after that anything goes: contemporary, science fiction, historical, paranormal, mystery, or whatever else strikes his fantasy.

Jamie Fessenden set out to be a writer in junior high school. He published a couple short pieces in his high school’s literary magazine and had another story place in the top 100 in a national contest, but it wasn’t until he met his partner, Erich, almost twenty years later, that he began writing again in earnest. With Erich alternately inspiring and goading him, Jamie wrote several screenplays and directed a few of them as micro-budget independent films. He then began writing novels and published his first novella in 2010. After nine years together, Jamie and Erich have married and purchased a house together in the wilds of Raymond, New Hampshire, where there are no street lights, turkeys and deer wander through their yard, and coyotes serenade them on a nightly basis.

Jamie recently left his “day job” as a tech support analyst to be a full-time writer.
