Christmas Angel by Alex Silver (Merry Exmas book 2)

Alex Silver is back with his second holiday romance this season!  Christmas Angel is the second half of the Merry Exmas duology. 

From the blurb:


Since the first night Saint brought me back to his place and blew my mind, he’s been a bright spot in my life. When we’re together, I’m not Owen and Meg’s Pop first, and everything else second. For a few glorious hours, all that matters is the pleasure Saint and I share. No strings and no expectations.

With Christmas approaching, I’m on my last frayed nerve. Between extra shifts at work, final exams, and my evil ex stirring up trouble, it’s so tempting to lean on Saint more. He means well, but I’m not used to help that doesn’t come with hidden snares. Can I trust his love isn’t another gilded cage?


I don’t date. Not since my short-lived marriage to my best friend fell apart. That way, no one can pressure me into faking a romantic attraction that I’ve never experienced. So I should know better than to become involved with someone I represented through a messy divorce. Except my heart apparently didn’t receive the memo. Maybe the magic of Christmas is addling my brain, but Angel has me wondering if this time I can be enough for a lasting love.

Christmas Angel is an M/X single-parent, small-town, hurt/comfort, angsty Christmas romance between an aromantic lawyer and a genderqueer single parent of two. This is the second book in the Merry Exmas duology, but both books can stand alone. CW for Angel’s abusive ex, misgendering/mild transphobia from the ex, and parental abandonment (Angel’s parents and their ex). Make your yuletide gay with Merry Exmas!

Heather's Review:

One of the things I love about Alex Silver's stories is that you never know who you will meet as characters and what their backstory is... and this time you have an Aromantic man and a genderqueer single parent... and it was beautiful to read!!

I really enjoyed getting glimpses of Saint in the first book in this set, but it was just a tease... and the story was way beyond what I had thought when I met his character.

I truly enjoyed getting to know Angel, as well, both as a person and as a single parent struggling after divorce.  

This is one of those stories that shows that everyone has a match and that sometimes friendship is the best basis for building a partnership!  If you love a holiday romance where the good people get their HEA, 

Christmas Angel is currently available in paperback and e-book formats and can be read as part of your Kindle Unlimited subscription.
