Blurb: A Crumpet Christmas is the perfect time to fall in love.
When a mission goes south, Elijah Cobalt is forced to take medical leave. What could be better than relaxing in a small town and keeping an eye on his little sister at the same time? Nothing, until he gets his first look at his sister’s boss. Elijah has always felt bulky and big around the smaller type of men he prefers and around Justin Bailey, it’s the same damned thing.
Justin gave up dating big, muscled men after his breakup with his abusive boyfriend, but he just might make an exception when his café manager’s older brother takes over his spare bedroom. The instant attraction has sparks flying and, after a few days, Justin doesn’t want to fight it any longer.
Christmas is a magical time of year.
The power of love takes over.
Possibilities are endless.
Until Justin’s ex-boyfriend suddenly shows up out of the blue determined to cause as much trouble for him as possible. Only Justin has a support system now, in the form of a Special Forces Unit, and things are going to get really damned intense in a very short amount of time.
Mess with one and you mess with them all.
Review: Justin had once thought he was truly happy but then his ex went ballistic on him. Now he happily lived in the best place, owned his own company and had the best employees and friends. He took in strays that were hurt or abused. When he saw the big man standing besides his ex, well he lost it a bit. Then come to find out that it had all been innocent well his eyes might have gotten bigger, because damn if the man wasn’t sex on a stick.
Elijah was not only a captain in the army but special forces. Several months ago his little sister had been bleeding and broken and it pained him. He held on to it until one day on a mission he just froze. He was ordered to take three months off and he decided to visit his sister, and possibly check out her boss. What he had not expected was to find the one man his heart wanted forever. To bad Justin’s ex was up to something bad.
I had made the mistake of reading this first instead of book one. I spent twenty minutes trying to see if I had the first book because damn this one rocked. It was very action packed with danger mixed in, not to mention cutie pie puppies, grumpy cats, and some hot sexy times. It was a very fast pace story and always kept me on my toes. I enjoyed the guys quite a bit and their friends were all pretty sweet. It was a nice Christmas story that will be read many times over.
I had a blast reading this and can’t wait to go back and finally read the first book. I also can’t wait till I can get my hands on the next story. I can guarantee that this will be on my favorites shelf for sometime.
