I was given a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

This is a Christmas fantasy romance. Mario spends his Christmas holiday in Tenerife fantasising about Josie, his son’s gorgeous swim teacher. He also spends a tiresome amount of time angsting over his parenting and generally getting far too wrapped up in his own head. The fantasy is fun. The soul searing angst and self doubt? Not so much.

The pacing of this story is odd. Mario spends almost the entire story watching Josie from a distance. They finally connect in a porn style fantasy encounter in the last few pages. If porn fantasies included intimate discussions of family life and parenting... I personally could have done with less brooding and more hot Santa. But at least the author allows a HFN and doesn’t force a HEA on a 21 year old single dad.
