A freak blizzard strands flight attendant Andy Weston at LaGuardia Airport on Thanksgiving. Tabloid reports about Hollywood It couple Devin Delaney and Cristina Marino breaking up in spectacular fashion keep Andy sane. And then Devin Delaney himself turns up at the gate Andy is working. Against all odds—and because there’s nothing else to do—Andy and Devin begin to talk, immediately connect, and, after Devin confesses the real reason he broke up with Cristina, have a magical night together snowed in at the airport. But the magic ends when Devin boards his flight home the next morning, and Andy assumes it’s over.

Then Devin turns up on his doorstep. Andy is game for a clandestine affair at first—who could turn down one of the hottest men on the planet? But he soon grows tired of being shoved in Devin’s closet. As Christmas approaches, it’s clear that this will never work unless Devin is willing to make some big changes. Devin has a holiday surprise in store—but will it be enough?

My View:

If you are a fan of those Christmas movies on famous for being on Lifetime, ABC Family, or Hallmark channel during the holidays, you will certainly enjoy Devin December.  For me, it read like any one of those movies.  Except of course that the leads were both men (which of course neither Hallmark nor Lifetime would dare to do, but I digress).   Don’t get me wrong, that isn’t a bad thing.  Those movies were my guilty pleasure in November and December for years.

There is no “Magic of Christmas” in Devin December.  No interfering pseudo Santa.  No mystical reason for the two leads to be together.  But there are two leads who have no reason to be together finding each other, finding love, and finally finding their happily ever after all after a chance meeting during a snowstorm.

Their road from strangers to the sunset is not an easy one.  Devin has to come to terms with who he is and who he wants to be.  Andy has to weigh his love for Devin with who he is and how he wants to live.  Both men have to looks hard at themselves, their hearts, and their lives.

Devin December is a quick heartwarming read for a cold winter night.
