Christmas at Queen’s Crescent by Kristian Parker

Kristian brings every emotion out with Christmas at Queen's Crescent, an intense beginning to what can only be an emotional rollercoaster new and exciting series. 

From the blurb:

Jeremy Brookes is having a mid-twenties crisis. After losing his mother, he’ taken up his father’s offer
to move from Canada to London to start a new life. The problem is, he has no idea how to do it. His billionaire father as some ideas…

Once Jeremy is installed in the exclusive neighbourhood of Queens Crescent, he will have to sort his life out pretty damned quick if he’s to avoid a lifetime at the pharma company where his father is CEO and his stepmother rules HR.

Jeremy isn’t cut out for that life or that of a spoiled rich kid, worrying where his next designer label is coming from. Then he happens upon Stuart Monroe, the handsome Scottish florist with a shop around the corner. As the only socialist in Kensington, Stuart’s lowly background makes it a challenge to be surrounded by such wealth. Instantly drawn to this rebel in their midst, Jeremy decides to do the sensible thing: go undercover as Stuart’s new shop assistant to get to know the enigmatic stranger better.

What could possibly go wrong? 

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

A different type of story than what I was used to reading by Kristian, but he still delivers an excellent rendition of love having no boundaries.  This was such an enjoyable and quirky holiday romance and an amazing start to new series. There were feelings of grief, betrayal, sadness and despair while also discovering that money doesn’t make the person.

I absolutely adored Jeremy and Stuart, separate and together. Their growth was incredible, and their connection was intense. Not mentioning their chemistry was on the rise throughout the story. 

Appreciation for the side characters is definitely needed as they made the story flow more naturally. The relationship between Jeremy and his stepmother was realistic, and the story was very well executed.
