What Happens At Christmas
by Jay Northcote
Genres: Contemporary, M/M, Romance
When two friends pose as boyfriends, could what happens at Christmas turn into something more?
Justin is recently and unhappily single. Christmas is coming, and he doesn’t want to face his ex alone at their office party. So Sean—Justin’s best mate and long-time secret crush—volunteers to go with him and pretend to be his new flame.
Sean has always lusted after Justin from afar, but there’s never been a good opportunity to ask him for more than friendship. Posing as Justin’s boyfriend isn’t a chore, and if Justin wants to rebound onto him, Sean’s more than willing. At the party pretence and reality blur, and a kiss on the dance floor leads to a night of passion.
In the aftermath, they both assume it was a one-time thing until fate intervenes. Stuck together in London over the holidays, they give in to temptation again. But what happens at Christmas stays at Christmas... right?
My Review 5 of 5 stars
An adorable friends to lovers story that embodies the spirit of Christmas. Justin an Sean are adorable. I love how they connected as friends on multiple levels, and the way their relationship strengthened as their romance developed. What Happens at Christmas is as sweet as hot chocolate on a cold winter's day. Jay's characters wiggled their way into my heart and I'm looking forward to re-reading their story in preparation for the holidays every year.
Jay lives just outside Bristol in the West of England, with her husband, two children, and two cats.
She comes from a family of writers, but she always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed her by. She spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content. One day, she decided to try and write a short story–just to see if she could–and found it rather addictive. She hasn’t stopped writing since.
