Publisher's Summary

One broken collarbone, two stubborn men, three interfering chefs, four weeks to go, five chewed garlands, and The Pear Tree covered in snow....

Ben’s Christmas Plans:

1. Finish the staff schedules, get the orders done, and make sure the next month runs smoothly because December is hell.
2. Break collarbone at rugby.
3. Scrap all plans. Drag Ianto in to help.
4. Avoid staring at the gorgeous Welshman, even if he does look surprisingly hot in a Christmas sweater....
5. Remember how much of a pain Christmas is.

Ianto’s Christmas Plans:

1. Take Ben to hospital after accidentally injuring him, even though it wasn’t my fault.
2. Feel very guilty and offer to help Ben with his epic to-do list since he refuses to take time off.
3. Eat my body weight in Patrick’s mince pies.
4. Learn how to tie ribbon bows that don’t look squashed.
5. Try not to fall for the very grumpy Yorkshireman who hates Christmas.

Spiced Kisses is a 78,000-word contemporary MM Christmas romance featuring a lengthy to-do list, holiday hot chocolate, a workaholic who hates December, a Welsh personal trainer who loves it, some very interfering staff, and a little Christmas magic.

Christmas in July was perfect

Dan Calley did a perfect job of taking me into this Christmassy world despite the 100 degree temperatures. This story has hurt/comfort, grinchy/sunshine and lots and lots of food (especially mince pies). Do yourself a favor and listen to this any time of year to get a bit of that spirit of generosity and open heartedness.

So good

Ben and Zia to are just too perfect for words. I loved this story and the little group messages at the beginning of the chapters really made me laugh. I love this author’s books so much and this one was no exception. And Dan Calley did a great job bringing them to life.

Friends to lovers in true Charlie Novak’s style!

Workaholic Ben is the column supporting the Peach Tree pub and restaurant. We have seem him solve the unsolvable, always there, always reliable, his whole life is dedicated to work.
When he breaks his collarbone during a rugby practice, his teammate and friend Ianto steps up to help him. Part of it is the Welshman feeling guilty for Ben’s injury, part is him not minding at all spending more time with his friend.
More proximity leads to them getting to know each other better and better and their attraction and connection deepens the more time they spend together.
A sweet, low-angst story, with Charlie’s always fresh and catching writing, funny banter and a lot of meddling friends!

Adorable

Two strong willed stubborn men. One freak accident and a heavy dose of guilt. Throw in a ton of chemistry, interfering friends who want what’s best for everyone and you have a recipe for a good time. Dan brought these guys to life and I loved the banter.

Another sweet book in a awesome series

I have loved every book in this series and this friends to lovers book is no different. Low Angst and no communication issues or pointless drama. Just 2 guys falling in love in a mature, awesome, and steamy way. One of the things I really love about Charlie Novak books is how unapologetically British they are. A lot of authors I see tend to alter their writing for American audiences and I love that Novak doesn't, even if sometimes I get confused (trolley!), I love it because it's true to the story and the characters. Great steam level with a story to match.

Dan Calley continues to grow on me but I noticed something weird. I actually enjoy his narration when listening on my headphones, but when listening in the car on my commute or on my Google speakerits hard to hear his voice clearly and not as good a listening experience. Idk why, maybe I focus better when it's a headset.

*I listen to audio at 2x speed
