We Only Kiss at Christmas (Con Riley's Christmas Collection) by Con Riley

We Only Kiss at Christmas follows on from last year's story, His Last Christmas in London.

From the blurb:

Prepare for another snow-dusted, super-romantic and heart-clenching holiday gay romance from Con Riley.

All Sebastian Street wants for Christmas is justice. Oh, and some privacy to kiss his

Heat shouldn't sizzle between best friends like it does between me and Patrick. He's my flatmate, not my boyfriend, a gym-bro powered by peace, love, and understanding. In comparison, I'm a yappy terrier fuelled by rage and sugary baked goods.

Expect a third flatmate to understand our opposites-attract dynamic?


This could be our last December together. Our first alone in this flat.

I can’t share it. Or Patrick.

Not when we only kiss at Christmas.

Perfect for fans of friends to lovers and found families, visit London and Cornwall in We Only Kiss at Christmas, or double your festiveenjoyment with His Last Christmas in London, the first standalone romance in this shared-world series.

Sheena's Review:

This can be read as a standalone, but I would recommend reading after His Last Christmas in London, as it's directly linked to that book - and it's wonderful.

There is something magical about a Con Riley Christmas story. I remember saying last year that His Last Christmas in London was a love letter to that city, and that's no less true with this one too. This is Seb and Patrick's story, and I've been dying for it since last year and meeting them in His Last Christmas. They are Ian's flatmates from that story and always acted as more than friends and flatmates and I really wanted their story. I wasn't disappointed at all. There are cameos too, from some of the other books that were lovely.  

This is packed full of the magic of London at Christmas, and I loved seeing it through Seb's eyes as he negotiates a new flatmate, and the changes in his relationship with Patrick. These two, together they're wonderful and finally, finally get their HEA. I loved finding out about Seb's past and how it's affected him as he is now, and meeting Patrick's family again. This whole story was wonderful, honest and a real early Christmas treat.
