Holly Hills Christmas By A.D. Ellis

A.D. Ellis always creates characters that I just want to squish and love on... and Kota and Vince are no different... although I was thrown off by Vince Carter's name since I'm an old school Toronto Raptors fan, but beyond that A.D. has created a story where Christmas permeates every page...

From the Blurb:
Dakota Scott heads to the small town of Holly Hills to lick his wounds and spend Christmas with his ailing grandmother. Things don’t exactly go as planned and Dakota finds himself shacking up with a sexy silver fox. No worries, it’s just until the holiday is over.
Vince Carter is a self-proclaimed Grinch who somehow ends up starting over in a perpetual Christmas town. He definitely should have said no when his friend’s hot-as-sin grandson offers up a holiday fling, but Vince has clearly lost his mind.
What starts as quick and easy mixed with a little Christmas magic soon turns into something much more than either man could have ever imagined. Will what they’ve found in each other pass as quickly as the approaching holiday? Or will Dakota and Vince find a way to navigate the obstacles they face together?
Holly Hills Christmas is a steamy, feel-good, M/M age-gap holiday romance.

Heather's Review:

Holly Hills Christmas was exactly what you expect from a feel good Christmas story - a little instant connection... some firm, but gentle family meddling and lots of the magic of the season.  You don't see much of the world beyond the guest house and the Inn, but honestly, cocooned in their little world is the perfect place to develop a holiday relationship, especially wen that family meddling includes leaving just one bed...

The book starts out steamy and the heat level stays pretty consistent while the feelings grow, even with an inevitable crisis, because romance... If you're looking for a sweet and steamy M/M holiday romance than look no further than Holly Hills Christmas - it's exactly as advertised and like all A.D. Ellis stories, well crafted and well written, steamy and sweet with a believable HEA.
