Publisher's summary

Archie’s posh parents want him to meet a nice girl - how can he tell them he’s fallen for a bad boy instead?

Closeted, innocent, and lonely, Archie Arandale longs for someone special in his life. A Christmas party organized by his wealth management company is the last place he expects to meet the man of his dreams.

With his leather jacket, tattoos, and piercings, Cal Turner turns heads the moment he walks through the door. He definitely isn’t looking for a boyfriend, but Archie’s hesitant charm captures his attention, and sneaking off during the party to have a little fun can only make a dull evening more interesting.

After their reckless and thrilling encounter, Archie is keen for more experience and Cal is happy to oblige. The need for secrecy means this can only be a casual fling, yet as they spend time together in the run up to Christmas, their feelings become more intense than either of them had bargained for. How can Archie find the courage to tell his family about Cal, when Cal’s the exact opposite of the "nice girl" they’ve been hoping for?

Contains: a closeted virgin, a tattooed biker, class differences, a dramatic coming out, a very inappropriate Christmas gift, and a happy ending (of course).

5 STARS!!

Sooo freakin good!! Total opposites attract. Archie is of the wealthy elite and Cal is the tattooed bad boy, working class. They were perfect for each other. Loved hearing Cal fall for sweet Archie. Hamish Long did a fantastic job with the narration!! Loved all the voices and personality’s, such a fantastic job!

✫✫ 5 Stars ✫✫

Another awesome book from Jay Northcote! This book was sweet and hot all rolled into one. I loved both Archie and Cal. I especially enjoyed how different they are from each other and that didn't matter to them. I'm not usually a fan of Virgin story lines but Jay really wrote this one in a way that the innocent character wasn't naive or really innocent but more just hadn't had the opportunity which worked for me completely! I also loved how much Archie grew in this book, listening to him grow confidence and learn to love melted my heart. The ending was a PERFECT HEA!

The narration of course was amazing! Hamish Long is fantastic with giving every one their own voice.

A steamy opposites attract!

This was a steamy opposites attract featuring an adorable Virgin and a tattooed biker badboy.

Both Cal and Archie were likeable characters. I loved the setting of the story and the writing was engaging and enjoyable.

Hamish Long as always performed a captivating and compelling narration.

Good story, excellent performance as always!

I don’t know if I’d qualify this as a holiday story…though the holidays do happen through some of it. This screams more of opposites attract, coming out, upsetting the parents and defying the social classes kind of book. I really like that the couple decides honesty is the best policy so we can avoid the whole miscommunication thing in this book!

The way Cal and Archie meet is cute and I like their instant attraction. It’s obvious from the beginning neither of them will be able to keep things casual.

I hate that Archie pseudo hurts Cal before the holidays but I’m glad he decides to follow through on standing up to his parents while there instead of waiting.

I was a bit confused about Archie’s dad’s complete 180 with no explanation. I’m guessing it has something to do with his friend but that sort of came out of nowhere and was a bit unbelievable.

Hamish Long is great with ALL the characters and voices in this one!

Another hit

Just finished all 3 new Christmas books by Jay. Loved them all. Just right the amount of sweetness and hotness. If I had to choose one, a Boyfriend for Christmas was my favorite, I really felt the love and Hamish Long narration was wonderful. Well done! ❤️

Fun

A low-ish angst coming out to be with the “wrong” guy story. Archie & Cal are likable guys with enough money to have options & enough supportive family to get along, plus tattoos.

While the characters drank rather often, they were careful about not driving impaired, which was nice to see handled maturely. I think Archie’s future job would benefit from him examining why he didn’t reach out to any of the existing groups doing what he proposes rather than starting a new group, but that’s a minor quibble of a minor part of the story.

Steam: Med-hot verse M/M on page. There’s a lot of action for a smaller story. It was nice to have a virgin who has researched so is ready to change that status straight off instead of dancing around virginity. Though generally sex positive, the embarrassing sexy gifts exchange get a little judgy about kink, which caught me off guard. Which is to say the detailed sexytimes are more straightforward (med), but frequent (hot).

Narration: While generally good, for some reason the name pronunciation happened on a sliding scale. Cal-Carl-Carol’s name was hard to pin down via audio. And Cal’s mom, Cath Miller (I think) sounded a lot like Camila, Archie’s mom’s name. At least I’m pretty sure Archie’s love interest’s name is Cal and not Carl or Carol, but without looking it up, I can’t be certain. Other than that, the voicing & pronunciation were clear & the sound quality consistent & good.

Solid 4 stars overall!

I really liked this one. Sometimes Jay's stories can be a little short for me to love them and I end up feeling a little cheated - whether it be in relationship building; inner struggle; off page events - but this one delivered enough that I didn't feel that way this time. My favorite thing about this story was how 2 MCs that "looked" so much the part of where they fit in society and yet they were very similar on the inside and connected well with each other.

The steamy factor was on point and I loved how Cal was careful in all of Archie's firsts. I loved the playfulness and how they interacted.

Hamish Long always does a great job on narration and this book was no different!
