Blurb:

It’s Christmas Eve at Nana Dombruso’s house, and a wild party is in full swing. Gangsters, strippers and Nana’s ‘gay homosexuals’ are certainly bringing the holiday cheer. But all I can think about is what will happen when I see Constantino Dombruso again.

Connie and I have a very long, very complicated history. The last time I saw him, he’d tracked me down because someone had hired him to carry out a hit on my brother Luca and me. He didn’t go through with it, but the tension between us is through the roof.

His life has been on a troubling trajectory over the last decade. But the fact is, Connie got under my skin a long time ago, and despite everything, the attraction between us has always been electric.

When we see each other tonight at the party, there could be fireworks or gunfire. It could go either way.

***This holiday short story features characters from Alexa Land’s best-selling Firsts and Forever series. It’s told from Andreo’s perspective, who was introduced in the most recent book in the series, All I Believe. But it can also be enjoyed as a stand-alone for those unfamiliar with the series.

This gay erotic romance is about 21,000 words in length. It contains graphic sex and is only intended for adult readers

My View:

Quickly following on from All I Believe this is the first short in the Firsts and Forever Series and is sexy and fun with all the crazy you would expect from the Dombruso family.

Alexa has built up this iconic family ever since we first met them in Way Off Plan and in this book and the previous one we have learnt a little more about their history. This history has had a lot of influence on how Connie and Andreo’s relationship has grown and the story is told in both present day and flashbacks.

It amazes me that anyone in this family can have a secret but Connie managed it until recently. When faced with the man that haunts his dreams targeting his brother as well as himself things could have got awry fast. Feelings were awoken though and instead of awry they are about to get hot!

This quick peek back into their lives happens at one of Nana’s Christmas parties – I don’t have to say anymore right? Let your imagination run wild and you will still be nowhere near the reality that is Nana in full party mode! Andreo and Connie are once again drawn to each other but it feels different this time as they don’t want to let go.

This is quick and sweet but doesn’t feel finished. I hope we see more of this pair later in the series.

  1. This was such a great short for this series – my only complaint is that is was short. I really wanted to get to know Connie and Andy so much more 😀
