**Free hot holiday m/m romance**

A bashful bouncer, a Cajun rock boy, and a Christmas Eve kiss that changes everything…

Brian “Beef” Carroway thinks he’s gay. No, he knows he is. He’s gruff, buff, and overcompensating for his big size and soft heart. Brian’s the badass bouncer at Mosh rock club where Cajun singer Jack Cotille moonlights for the month of December.

With a voice like sin, Jack is walking, talking, sexy temptation in the flesh. He’s also fly-by-night, possibly homeless, and chancing everything on a wing and a prayer. Just about the only thing Brian is sure of is traveling man Jack belts out dirty rock lyrics while promising the kind of pornographic sex he’s only fantasized about.

He’s definitely gay for Jack.

One Christmas Eve kiss leads to a night of heaven, a morning of hell. The holiday week leaves Brian aching for more than his wanderer singer can give as the New Year’s Eve countdown begins.

***WARNING: Explicit male-male sex and a hot holiday romance***

My View:

This hot little novella had many things I definitely love:

a big, beefy, adorably insecure main character; a sleek, mysterious love interest; southern charme; musicians; and sizzling hot erotic tension.

It also had one of my biggest all time pet peeves, namely a really silly Big Misunderstandig as the main point of conflict.

Why then the rating (an a warmly recommended, too)?

Because of the writing. Beef’s 1st person POV narrative voice was so compelling, the story so fast-paced and concise, the characters so likeable–every single one of them, even the supportive ones–I couldn’t put it down. Loved this book.

If you’re looking for a short, sweet, hot, PWP holiday read, you can’t go wrong with this. (And it’s free–from Goodreads!)
