Author: Lillian Francis

Publisher: Totally Bound

Cover Artist: unknown

Rating: 3.5 of 5 Stars


A soot-haired chimney sweep, an exploding flue and an uncooked turkey. It’s an unholy trinity that may make all of Dominic’s Christmas wishes come true.
Dominic is celebrating his first Christmas since his divorce, and although he’s spending it on his own, he’s determined to have a traditional Christmas morning, including a roaring fire. Unfortunately, Dominic’s chimney is blocked, which is why Reagan, a soot-haired chimney sweep, is head and shoulders up Dominic’s flue. Dominic is just lucky the man had a cancellation on Christmas Eve.
Unable to take his eyes off Reagan’s low-slung jeans and enticing arse while Reagan sets about the hearth with rods and brushes, Dominic knows five years is a long time to be obsessed with the man who sweeps his chimney every Christmas. This year there’s nothing to stop Dominic from acting on his desires—except his own insecurities.
An exploding flue provides the opportunity for more than just polite conversation and could be the catalyst for a perfect Christmas. But Dominic will need to stop hiding who he really is before a special sweep can light a fire in his heart.
Publisher’s Note: This book was previously released by another publisher. It has been revised and re-edited for release with Totally Bound Publishing.

Brandilyn’s View:

Christmas is a time for… hooking up with your chimney sweep. First of all I didn’t realize that was a thing (outside of Mary Poppins, of course), but apparently it is. In this case it was an interesting way to get the main characters together. One is a newly out and newly divorced man. They other, Reagan, is the man who has been the center of his fantasies for six years.

Dominic and Reagan get together at Christmas time in an insta-love, after six years of pining, story. It is sweet. It is hot. There is nothing magical about this story. Instead, you have two men finally giving in to what each has wanted for so long. They have to navigate family obligations along with their desires to be with the other man.

Flue is a little-to-no-angst story, so it would be good for a day when you need a pick me up and a story that shows you that dreams, or in this case fantasies, can come true.
