Keeping secrets is never a good way to start a relationship

Theo hardly has time to date. Between work and caring for his four-year-old son there aren't many hours left over. He's lonely though, so he joins a hook-up app and starts chatting to a guy called Luke. Luke seems friendly and they arrange to meet. Theo doesn't mention that he has a child. It's early days and he's worried about putting Luke off before they get to know each other.

Luke is currently working as Santa at the local shopping mall. He figures Theo never has to know. Christmas will be over soon and Luke will move on to a new, less embarrassing job. He's surprised when Theo and a little boy visit Santa one afternoon. Theo doesn't recognise Luke, and Luke realises he's not the only one with a secret.

Despite misgivings on both sides, they start dating, and the chemistry is amazing. But as Christmas approaches their secrets pile up like colourful packages under the tree. If they're not careful, they'll lose the best gift of all each other.

I'm always happy when i get a new Jay Northcote read on my kindle, he writes stories that are about real life, no big angsty drama. He always gives me the feels of, as if i was sat having a cup of tea with a friend and their telling me whats been happening in their life.

Christmas reads should be lighthearted fun reads and thats what we got. It was a little different to the normal friends to lovers. Theo and Luke contact each other through a social app. Both looking for more than just a hook up they strike up a conversation. Finding that they have a good connection they both decide to see where it could go. The only problem is they are both keeping a secret that leads them to telling little white lies.

I understood why they both kept their secret and loved how it played out to them getting their HEA. Throw in a super cute kid, some fun surprises for the adults ;-) and we have a great Christmas read.
