Audio Review: The Christmas Leap Festive Fakes By: Keira Andrews Narrated by: Greg Boudreaux

If you like friends to lovers and that at Christmas, you should listen to this audiobook. The Christmas Leap fits the bill.

From the blurb:

Fake romance shouldn’t feel this real....

Will: I've never been with a man.

Sure, I've thought about it. Wondered. Daydreamed. Imagined. But I wasn't ready to take the leap.

I have a reputation as a "ladies' man". No one has any idea how curious I am about men—not even my openly bi best friend. Make that former best friend. Michael ghosted me, and I have no idea why.

Michael: The man I love is straight.

It hurt like hell when I had to distance myself from Will. I’ve tried desperately to grow up and get over him, but my carefully constructed life just fell apart—and Will rushes to my rescue.

Now we’re pretending to be a couple to impress his boss at a holiday retreat. We’re holding hands and hugging.

We’re sharing a bed.

And Will just kissed me.

Is my best friend falling in love with me after all?

The Christmas Leap by Keira Andrews is a Christmas romance featuring friends to lovers, bi awakening, first times, and of course a happy ending. This stand-alone novel takes place in the same universe as The Christmas Deal.

Lesetiger's Review:

Keira Andrews has written a wonderful Christmas story. Michael's Christmas goes so very differently than planned when he overhears a phone call his boyfriend has made. He ends up with car trouble in the middle of nowhere and calls his former best friend Will, whom he hasn't seen in two years. And what begins as a fake boyfriend relationship in front of Will's boss ends in a Christmas vacation together. But how long can a fake relationship be faked when real feelings are involved? 

Will and Michael are both very sympathetic and I found this storyline sweet and heartwarming. And even though there is no snow, there is a festive mood. There is some laughter, lots of feelings, lots of sunshine, nice secondary protagonists, romance and of course love. If you like friends to lovers and that at Christmas, you should listen to this audiobook. I was hooked from the beginning and listened to the audiobook in just two days. 

Greg Boudreaux was brilliant as the narrator. He brought the story to life with an ease and gave appropriate voices to the characters. I love his Scottish accent! I will definitely be looking for more audiobooks by this narrator.
