Magical Ending.....

Good story and lots of detail but this is the MM version of the film The Holiday.
I read to the end and I'm glad I did, very magical, but I kinda knew where it was going as I've seen the film.

Just kind of boring. I never felt invested in any of the characters.

The perfect Christmas romance that had me chuckling and misty eyed in equal measure. And there’s a cat called Mrs Slocombe- older Brits will appreciate that irony.

This is a cute, cheesy Christmas novella. It's basically the plot of the film The Holiday. Oliver is the English guy who has been pining over someone who clearly isn't interested. Kyle is the work-obsessed uptight American one who can't cry. They swap houses for the Christmas holiday and meet their ideal partners.
All four guys are really sweet, as is the story itself. It's refreshing to read an m/m novel that fades to black for the sex scenes.
It promises a feel good, fun, Chirstmas story and i

My thoughts

Liam is a new author to me, he asked me if I would like to review his book, of course I said yes. Don't you just love reading new authors, mainly they are taking you on different journey to one that you are used to, and sometimes its refreshing to read a new author.

My Review

This was a great book to read, and I can thoroughly recommend it. For me Liam caught the magic of Christmas with also the just right amount sexual tension, you knew what was going to happen without being told and

I was excited to read this but couldn't really connect with the characters in the end.
The writing wasn't bad and overall I liked the story but for me it all felt a bit rushed even with it being around 140 pages.

I won't give a star-rating to be fair since it's entirely possible that I was simply not in the right mood for it.
