Stuck With You is a charming holiday novella by the talented author Jay Northcote who knows how to deliver a solid story with awesome characters who are very unique and feel pretty multi-layered.

With this story Jay Northcote delivers a story where we have an office-romance, enemies to lovers story. The office romance though is changed into a forced proximity setting: the two guys, working in the same company they are normally not eager to spend their free time together, yet they are forced to do so when they are on a business trip which totally went wrong and they’re stuck in the middle of nowhere, dependent on the good will of a (at first) grumpy old lady (she’s a true gem ❤ ), running a bed & breakfast – which isn’t what both have expected at all.

I really loved the arguments between the guys, Patrick and Kyle aren’t really coming along; mostly Kyle behaves like a brat and is annoyed by Patrick’s over-organized planning to overcome the trip as smoothly as possible. Patrick on the other hand can only shake his head about Kyle’s almost childish behaviour and his slightly aggressiv behaviour.

Both guys are the complete opposite and can’t stand each other – or is this maybe just an excuse? 😉 The sparks are flying, soon it’s clear that Kyle isn’t that sazzy and bold; he comes across as very vulnerable in parts of the book and when Patrick is showing his dominant side – something neither Kyle nor Patrick would have expected – it’s a surprise for both – but definitely not an unwelcome one. 😀

I was really hooked by the way Jay mixed the vulnerable sides by Patrick and Kyle with their process of learning each other a bit better and both guys have several times their foot in their mouth and the reader has a severe case of second hand embarassment and heartache. It’s nice to see that in the time they’re stuck with each other, they learn more about each other and begin to trust and cherish the other person’s closeness and presence.

The kinky part of the book was nice included and it spiced up the story in comparison to the other books we know by the author, which are sweet and adorable. Although it’s not the hottest book Jay Northcote has written. This book though is one of the few containing spanking and the way Patrick and Kyle use their limited time – and equipment – for their pleasure is pretty nice executed.

This christmas story gets 5 out of 5 stars from me. I highly recommend it and for every fan of the author it’s of course a must have. 🙂

Two clashing colleagues stuck together for Christmas—will opposites
eventually attract?

Patrick has been single since he broke up with his cheating ex almost a
year ago. With Christmas looming, he’s resigned to spending it alone with
only memories of happier times for company. When a business trip with a
co-worker leaves them stranded in the Lake District due to heavy snow, it
seems Patrick will have company for Christmas after all. It’s a shame his
companion is Kyle, who’s undeniably attractive, but annoying as hell.

Aware of Patrick’s reluctant admiration, Kyle basks in the attention even
though Patrick isn’t the type of man he normally goes for. Averse to
relationships after being hurt in the past, Kyle enjoys the occasional hook
up, but has given up on seeking anything more meaningful.

Stuck together, their antagonism escalates along with a heavy dose of
sexual tension until it finally ignites. What starts as a Christmas fling soon
feels like something special; but will their tentative connection melt away
as the snow thaws? If they’re going to take a chance on finding happiness
together, they’ll have to put their differences aside and learn to trust one

Contains: enemies-to-lovers, snowball fights, bickering, spanking, a cute
dog, a wise old lady, mistletoe, and a happy ending (of course).
