Christmas Mountain is a sweet, very slow burn holiday romance...
From the Blurb:
The probation officer caring for his dead brother’s baby. The wounded gentle giant with the biggest softest heart.
Rami: Sweet Fen Hawthorne is my favourite thing about working in the prison. His broad shoulders and sunny grin. His twinkly flirtation. And he likes me as much as I like him. More seems inevitable until life happens.
One day I’m there, then I’m not, and second chances don’t really happen when your car breaks down halfway up a snowy mountain, do they?
Besides, I don’t remember flirting with a bearded lumbersexual, only dreaming about one.
Fen: Do dreams come true?
Christmas Mountain is my home. But it’s the one place on earth I never imagined seeing Rami Stone again, and now I’m snowed in with him. Trapped, with only a roaring fire for company, and it’s a fantasy come true. The air is thick with more than snow and the eighteen months we’ve been apart fades away.
As the snow clears, though, so does the haze. Rami says he comes with baggage.
But so do I, and I’m here for the heavy lifting.
I’m here for forever.
A Christmas MM romance from Garrett Leigh. Expect: Long lost friends-to-lovers, heart-warming found family, and the swooniest second chance at love with a healthy dose of sweet hurt/comfort. Gorging on mince pies and cinnamon-spiced doughnuts is optional, but deeply encouraged.
This book features characters who appeared in a previous Garrett Leigh book that I have not read, but I don't think I missed too much, so I would consider that this book can be standalone if you are just looking to read a cosy holiday romance.
It was very slow burn and very sweet. For me, there was a lot of repetition of waiting to be ready to move forward, which was hard for me, but in the end the story came together nicely and the characters got their HEA.
If you want a Hallmark style, sweet holiday read, than I recommend you add Christmas Mountain to your TBR!
