It’s the holidays for a group of very special men who’ve managed to become a family in the last year and while all the guys are coming together to celebrate Hawke and Tate’s upcoming wedding, a few of them have big plans of their own…
A change of plans…
Newlyweds Ronan and Seth are settling into married life as Ronan considers his return to medicine and Seth starts dreaming of a future that may include the pitter patter of little feet a lot sooner rather than later.
Building a future…
Knee deep in wedding preparations, Hawke and Tate are celebrating something even more important – Matty’s final round of chemotherapy treatment. As they anxiously await confirmation that their son is finally in remission, both men strive to give their little boy a normal life including a new house, playdates with Matty’s new best friend, Leo, and a new support system of men and women who are starting to seem a lot like family.
An important question to ask…
Meanwhile, Mav is looking to make things official with Eli despite the young man’s busy schedule with medical school. But before he can ask the man of his dreams that very important question, he has to get past Eli’s family first, including a posse of two overprotective fathers, several intrusive uncles and a little girl who just wants to brush Mav’s hair!
Figuring it all out…
With Memphis, Brennan and Tristan settling into their newfound relationship and our favorite threesome from New York visiting for the wedding, there are plenty of chances for old friends to connect and new bonds to be formed.
The best kind of chaos…
And of course, what wedding wouldn’t be complete without a little drama including some white hot sexual tension between a not so old grandfather and a certain cocky bodyguard? Add in some more Barrettis, a couple of precocious kids, several dogs, one spoiled cat and a gaggle of new, hot alpha men and you’ve got the perfect storm for a holiday that only the Protectors could pull off!
Christmas stories are not my thing and as such I made a decision this year to avoid them as much as possible – that rule doesn’t stand however when it’s a Christmas story about my favourite men from the Protectors series that drags in children, animals and the Barretti’s and also gives us a glimpse into couples that I am sure are going to get their own stories soon enough.
Nobody really features in this book – instead we get to look in on all the men and their stories merge into one. There is a real family feel to the overall story but that is something noticeable in all Sloane’s books that I have read so far. Along the way we have marriage proposals, weddings, more visits to the hospital, someone gets shot, more children are added to the mix and you can foresee at least two future stories both of which are sure to be amazing.
If only love was as easy as who was going to eat the Peas and Broccoli – this is one of my favourite bits and is a conversation between Matty and Magnus – In our current and very altered world I just loved the simplicity from a child’s point of view. For fans of this series this one is a winner – I am now very much looking forward to Jace and Caleb and Magnus and Dante
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
