Blurb:

Mason Collier isn’t big on authority figures. When Office Steve Coleman pulls him over and gives him a speeding ticket, he doesn’t react well. He’s even less happy when he discovers the cop lives next door to his parents’ house.

No matter where they turn this holiday season, Steve and Mason keep running into each other, and whenever they talk for more than a minute, they piss each other off. But from wayward dogs to Christmas tree hunts to maple syrup festivals, it proves impossible to avoid each other in the small town.

If Mason can see the good man behind the badge, he might just get a cop for Christmas.

My View:

I reviewed A Cop for Christmas recently on episode 61 of Jeff and Will’s Big Gay Fiction Podcast.  I recommend you listen to <a href=”http://www.jeffandwill.com/biggayfictionpodcast/2016/12/05/big-gay-fiction-podcast-episode-61-lex-chase-states-of-love-brandilyn-book-recs-book-reviews-more/”>my review there</a>.

 

For those you just don’t want to listen here is the short version.

I enjoyed this story.  It isn’t a miracle of Christmas story.  Rather, it is two real men finding their way in the snow and ice of New Hampshire around Christmas.  Really Christmas is incidental and the reason Mason and Steve meet.  They aren’t instantly in love or instantly in hate.  They are what they are.  I grew to appreciate them as they grew to appreciate each other.

I am a fan of Jamie Fessenden’s work.  His characters are always real and relatable.  He always takes care in the accuracy and authenticity of a story.  A Cop for Christmas is no exception.
