The Holiday Hoax

The Holiday Hoax - Skylar M. Cates This could have been a great story.

But it wasn’t really.

We have Evan, who just got dumped by his boyfriend. Right before he was going to take him home to meet his parents. Now he has to come up with a backup plan. He meets JD in a diner. JD has nowhere to go for Christmas since his brother told him not to come home. JD’s has no other family left but his brother, who will not accept JD because he’s gay.

So Evan takes JD home, posing as Tyler, the old boyfriend. And of course during all these festivities, they fall in love.

It sounds like just the holiday story for me. But I just didn’t feel it. I never warmed up to Evan. JD was a sweet guy and I did like it when they got together near the end.

There is a little sex, but it is not detailed. I don’t mind it in a book that is already great, but this needed the sex to save some of it!

And the writing felt off somehow. We have several typos and the dialogue felt unnatural.

This book did not make me happy.
