Nauti or Nice: MM Christmas Romance (Voyagers Book Five) by Ava Olsen

Nauti or Nice, a Christmas romance, is the finale to the Voyagers series from Ava Olsen.

From the blurb:

Charlie: Being a first officer on board the superyacht Now, Voyager is a dream come true. And my personal life? I’m in and out and on to the next port, so to speak. I don’t have the inclination for a boyfriend. So when my boss asks me to work over the Christmas holiday, I’m happy to say yes.
And then Kiernan Doyle arrives.
The Irish bodyguard is a brawny grump with sad eyes and a shy smile. And I’m a sucker for a tough guy with a big…heart. Only, I’m pretty sure Kiernan told me he’s straight and I’ve been down that road before, falling for a man who can’t return my feelings. But I won’t deny that something is building between us.
And once we get under that mistletoe, I know. Christmas, and my life, will never be the same.

Kiernan: I’m a former MMA fighter turned bodyguard and while the fight money was great, my body knew it was time to leave. And being a bodyguard has its perks. Guarding billionaire Rowan Carter, and his husband Andrew is hardly work at all. His entourage of friends and family have become my friends too.
Including Charlie Cates, the First Officer on Rowan’s yacht.
Charlie’s not intimidated by my size or my grumpy demeanor. He’s the first person in years that I feel any kind of connection to. And I don’t know if it’s me or the mistletoe, but suddenly, I’m having naughty thoughts about the cute yachtie with killer dimples. Thoughts I’ve never had about a man before.
It turns out, all I want for Christmas, all I want always, is…Charlie.

Nauti or Nice is a friends to lovers, bisexual awakening, MM romance filled with first times, found family, and a HEA that will warm your Christmas spirit.

Sheena's Review:

What a way to round up this series, with a hot, sweet Christmas novella featuring a character we met waaay back in the first book in the series. I was so happy when I saw Charlie was going to get his own story and man, and I was not disappointed at all. I've read and enjoyed this whole series very much, and liked both Kiernan and Charlie when I met them in earlier stories. I love that they built up a friendship first, and I was there for all of it. There's a little angst, as Kiernan has to come to terms with his attraction to a man, and Charlie is wary of being attracted to a 'straight' man again as he has been burned by that in the past.

What follows when they decide to act on their attraction is full of heat, lots of action in some very tiny places - with such a big man too 😉. It was so good to 'see' all the couples/throuples we met in past books again too, all while Charlie and Kiernan are falling for each other. It's hot, sweet, steamy and just about the perfect send off for what has been a wonderful series.

Heather's Review:

A holiday bi-awakening and a chance to see the rest of the characters from the series for the holidays, sign me up!  While this can be read as standalone, there are several moments where past characters chime in and it's more fun to be in on the secrets...

I truly enjoyed the pacing, the hint of angst, the steam and the holiday romance, along with just how wonderful Kieran's family is!
