“This is a slow burn story that tantalizes even as it soothes the soul. Written from both Gray and Scottie’s points of view, the reader really gets a good idea of what is going on in the irascible Scottie’s head. A delightful short, it is well-written, realistic, and I adore the way the author presents the twins’ autism and how simple it is to work around and with it. There is steam in the palpable chemistry between the two MCs, but this short doesn’t take their relationship too far. Super hot kisses will leave you aching for more, but it is clear that these two men belong together.
As I mentioned to the author, I am salivating for the actual coming together of these two men. She assured me that the rest of their story is coming, and I simply must recommend this book to be read right now, as well as The Sin Bin series as a whole! I rate The Unexpected Santa at 4 sweet yet very hot stars.” 4 Stars from Cat C. at Divine Magazine
“The book keeps its upbeat tone even in face of complications arising in their lives. The relationship shifts and grows as we get to know characters better. It has a nice, unhurried pace. The “I love you’s” come in emotionally charged moment.
It’s a lovely upbeat read designed to lift reader’s spirits and bring a smile on his face. In my humble opinion, everyone can use something this funny and sweet.” ~ 4 Stars, Maya with Gay Book Reviews
“With no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt my reading flow, this was one helluva story that packs a mighty punch for being short. And that, right there, is the only problem I have with it! I NEEDED MORE!!!! I seriously wasn’t ready for this book to be over. I loved every single word. ” 5 Stars. Merissa from TRR
“This story is wonderfully written, perfectly paced and deals with a relationship at its most intimate level without sexual intimacy! I don’t remember a more beautiful love story involving the basic themes of hurt and recovery or a more patiently developed relationship. Wyatt’s overwhelming feeling is that Aled is “his botanist” no matter how long it takes, how many years, and that of “good fortune that no one else ever realized how amazing Aled is before they met”.” Mainely Stories, 5 Stars.
“I absolutely love how these characters start to grow and involve. It’s like you can actually feel the feelings of the characters. And everything they have to deal with whist they are trying to form a relationship.
This was a beautifully written story by the author… ”

“A wonderful story on acceptance, love and finding the one you are meant to be with and fighting for them. Of showing patience and kindness. A great second story in this series that has you laugh, smile and cry but most of all feel the love and acceptance from the characters towards one another. ”
