“The Unexpected Santa is a terrific Christmas prelude for all fans and readers of Dahlia Donovan’s The Sin Bin series. It’s that delicious taste of what’s to come, combined with the sweetness and joy of the holiday season when the twins come into the picture.” 4.5 stars from Melanie M. at Scattered Thoughts & Rogue Words
Scottie and Gray from The Unexpected Santa and The Lion Tamer are two of the grumpiest men I’ve ever written. Seriously. They are.
And I ADORE them for it.
I also love the teen movie Ten Things I Hate About You. (Don’t judge me.)
So, I thought I’d write a few things that both men hate or very strongly dislike.
- People who don’t pay attention to motorcyclists on the road.
- Bad food.
- Nosy friends.
- Most of his family.
- Child abusers.
Is there anything you hate or strongly dislike?
“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.
…when you hate them.
Or, in other words, how Scottie celebrates Christmas.
Scottie Monk loathes the holidays. It’s the worst time of the year in his opinion. Here are a few suggestions he has for how to make it through December holiday parties and celebrations:
- Seriously. Just fucking don’t.
- Have a drink.
- Repeat Step 3.
- Start over at 1.
As to why, here’s a list of what he hates about them:
- See above.
Do you love celebrating the holidays? Or, like Scottie, do you prefer to hide until all the fun is over?
