Gabe Martin is a journalism student who’s also working as an intern at the local newspaper, the Wisconsin State Journal. Gabe wants to be an investigative broadcast journalist, getting down in the nitty-gritty of the big stories, but instead, his boss has asked him to cover the piece they do for the charity dinner that benefits the local children’s home. Gabe thinks that it’ll be too boring and no different to every other year that the story has been run, so tries to find a way to make the story more interesting. When he interviews the people who organise the dinner, he discovers that for the last four years, there has been a new Santa coming to give all of the children their gifts, but no one knows who he is. He just comes in, sees the children and then leaves again without sticking around to speak to anyone else. Gabe thinks this is the big story he’s been looking for, so he plans to find Santa and show the town who he is.
When Gabe’s best friend, Jordan, asks him to go along with him to his boyfriend’s wrestling meet, Gabe agrees to go, even though he knows nothing about the sport. But when they take their seats and the college team enter the gym, Gabe is immediately drawn to the biggest member of the team, Mack, who is the only undefeated wrestler in the team’s history.
Mack McDonall is the college team wrestling star. He’s won every match he’s fought in and isn’t intimidated by any of his opponents. Everyone around him has told him he has what it takes to go pro, but Mack isn’t interested. He plans on becoming an engineer and working with coastal cities to help with their defenses to prepare for the effects of climate change. Looking at him, he’s the kind of guy you wouldn’t want to meet down a dark alley. His size and reputation as an undefeated wrestler tend to scare most people off, but away from the public and the gym, Mack is the opposite of what everyone thinks. He tends to keep to himself and is gentle and careful with his movements so as not to frighten anyone or cause a scene. Underneath the big burly exterior, is a gentle giant with a huge heart.
Gabe and Mack are definitely interested in each other, but Mack hasn’t had an easy life and finds it hard to open up and trust people, so dropping his guard to let Gabe in, is no easy task. And when Gabe tells Mack of his plan to find the secret Santa, Mack doesn’t know if he can be with someone who could invade someone’s privacy like that and possibly end up hurting the children at the home because if it.
Everything about the story was wonderful. I can’t find a single negative comment to make about it. Mack was just an amazing man, he could thaw the Snow Queen’s heart he’s that special. This is a book I will read again and again. I know Christmas stories aren’t to everyone’s taste, but if you do enjoy them, then this should definitely be high on your TBR list this year, you really won’t be disappointed. But have the tissues ready too.
***I would like to thank the author for the privilege and opportunity of reading this ARC. My review is an honest opinion of the book ***
Gabe is a journalism major looking for a great exposure story for a final paper and if he can get paid to do it win win. I really liked Gabe, he’s a fun character with a serious side but you’d have fun with him. He is disappointed his first assignment is a fluffy Christmas piece and looks for angles. When he finds out no one knows who the Santa is, well looks like he’s got his story! But what would be the cost of exposing Santa? The story is told from Gabe’s point of view and it’s great to see him realise how his own experiences colors his views.
Mack is reserved, the strong silent type of loveable guy. He knows what he wants and where his future is going. Family is important to him and he cares deeply about the important people in his life. I love both Mack and Gabe so different from each other but complimenting each other at the same time The part I adore the most is the tradition of toasting to wishes for the next year, they were ones of hope and happiness. It’s a lovely idea. All in all this is a perfect Christmas story for me.
As I said there is something for everyone in this wonderful Christmas story, the slow romance and building of trust between Gabe and Mack, the spirit of Christmas caring for others, selfless generosity, family, friends and pulling together to make a difference. All without the fluff. This is going to be one of my go to Christmas reads.
It's a beautifully written story about two guys who just connect, they're obviously meant for each other from the word go. Unfortunately, coming from different worlds, and having different objectives in life, it seems that their relationship is over before it has a chance. I enjoyed both MCs, what with Gabe's sass and Mack 's shy strength, they totally complemented one another. Told from Gabe's unique point of view, he had me smiling pretty well throughout. I loved his wit.
It's a perfect Christmas story, it's not full of fluff and gush, although it is a little cute. A lovely plot with a festive flavour, all about what Christmas should be. Very light on sex, but when it happens, it's full on, and humorous. As usual, from Ms Easton, a cleverly written story, it's all about real people, depth, warmth and humour. Would definitely love more of Gabe and Mack.
Was lucky enough to get an arc of this book. My first festive read of 2017, it left me wanting more. I've got Blame It On The Mistletoe lined up next.
