Sebastian Bennett is really looking forward to his Christmas holiday with boyfriend Elliot Bolton in the Gran Canarian sun. The only thing left is for him to sing one last song at the pub as his Drag Queen alter-ego, Donna Tracey. After the wig, make-up and dress come off, he rushes home to pack, only to find he and his chihuahua, Buster, have been deserted by Elliot, who’s taken someone else to Gran Canaria. Devastated, Elliot turns to his friend and the pub’s manager, Javier Reyes-Martinez, who helps him pick up the pieces.

Javier seems determined to bring fun and laughter back into Sebastian’s life during this holiday season, and Sebastian is both grateful and enchanted. After a family Christmas and a word of advice from his great-uncle, Sebastian starts to look at Javier in a different light. Is Javier as fond of Sebastian as he appears, or is Sebastian being misled by his own need? If he’s reading the signs right—and if he’s ready to move on from his previous heartbreak—could he and Javier be much more than friends?

This story was a proper treat. I've never read George Loveland before, but I definitely will be again. This story is a delightful romance that made me smile.

Although this story is told through the eyes of Sebastian -also known as drag queen, Donna Tracy - it is Javier who truly stole my heart.

I know it's not fashionable to love the nice guy, it's all about bad boys and their vulnerabilities, but I sometimes think the nice guy is waaaay ahead in the sexy, gotta love 'em stakes. Javier was a proper nice guy and that is sexy as fuck. He is such a genuinely good friend to Seb after Elliot did the dirty on him that it made my heart smile. He didn't push his own agenda, he was just being a good friend and I swear that is the biggest turn on ever.

Seb was vulnerable but he wasn't an idiot. He was fierce as Donna and called on his inner queen when required, he'd been hurt, blindsided by Elliot's actions, but he didn't let it swallow him up. A lot of that was due to Javier. It's hard to see the wood for the trees sometimes but when you finally do you see its full glory.

I loved that this story progressed naturally and the relationship felt true and made me giddy with holiday glee.

A winner by my standards. The feeling of love, respect and family is as Christmassy as mulled wine and mince pies. Delicious all round.

Author Bio

George was about eighteen when he told his friend that he was going to be a writer. It took him another eighteen years before he finally did anything about it and wrote his first short story. A typical Englishman, he drinks buckets of tea with milk—but no sugar, because he is sweet enough. His Nan told him so.

George lives just outside of London, but close enough to enjoy Soho and the West End, where you will find him in a bar with a pint, in a club dancing into the early hours of the morning, or enjoying a musical in the theater; but more than likely he will be in a coffee shop reading a book or writing a new story. Currently single, but taking applications for future husband position, George enjoys crafting romantic stories in which he hopes that one day, life will imitate art.
