Christmas Wish List
(Hartbridge Christmas Series, #2)
Publication date: November 25th 2021
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Holiday, Romance
In need of work and a change of scenery, Aussie ex-pat Jayden Turner agrees to a short-term chef position at a Bed and Breakfast over the Christmas holidays. After all, how hard could it be in a small town in the mountains of Montana? What he finds is a grand old house in a beautiful town, and his new boss is gorgeous, gay, and single.
After his divorce, Carter “Cass” Campion bought his great-aunt’s rundown country manor in his home town, and he’s determined to get it ready for the busy holiday period. Recently out as gay, he’s been focused solely on his business and hasn’t had time for a man. Not that many gay men come through Hartbridge . . .
As his new clients arrive, and being away from his two kids, celebrating Christmas is the last thing on Cass’s mind, but his new chef has other ideas. And if there’s one thing on his Christmas Wish List this year, Jayden can make it come true.
I *just* listened to book one in this duet (or will it be a series?) a couple of weeks ago to get me in the holiday spirit! This book is a quick read and can be read as a standalone but really should be read after book one.
I’m typically not thrilled when a character I didn’t like from a previous book makes me like him but…I should have known Ms. Walker would twist my arm! Cass is just a good guy. I love that he’s turning his home into a B&B. He and Ren obviously worked through their issues. He’s hidden his true self until now, but he is being completely honest when the time calls for it.
Jayden is good for Cass. He takes care of him when Cass doesn’t even realize he needs it. He defends Cass to Hamish. He’s good with Cass’ kids. He falls in love with Hartbridge just like Hamish did in book one.
I hope this one goes to audio as book one did so I can listen to them sequentially before the holidays next year!
N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance. She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
She is many things: a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.
She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things… but likes it even more when they fall in love.
She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.
She’s been writing ever since…
