Dean Murphy hates Christmas a little more each year. His job as a pharmacy manager requires him to festoon his store with seasonal cheer, but his distaste for the lurid commercialism is only topped by his irritation with the syrupy sentimentalism. Being alone sucks, but he’s managed just fine without friends or family for years; why should December 25 be any different?
When the tattooed Tony Delvecchio walks into his store, Dean hopes that maybe Tony’s different. Maybe Tony’s the man who won’t be driven away by Dean’s Scrooge-like tendencies. But Tony loves the holiday season, and he challenges Dean to three dates. Three dates to change his mind about Christmas.
Despite knowing it will all end badly, Dean does the unthinkable. He agrees.
First Christmas read, and it was a winner.
This was Christmas spirit in book form, Dean was becoming a mini scrooge, all fake smiles and solitary behaviour, when Tony overhears a couple of his employees taking about him he can’t reconcile the good looking guy with the grinch they describe. So Tony challenges Dean to three dates to change how he feels about Christmas, and he goes all out.
Dean has not had an easy life, and it has made him out up some barriers, the first one is that he doesn’t date ! but Tony starts to break down his reserve by doing some traditional Chritmassy things including ice skating.
Totally feel good, angst free and adorable.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
