Can Yani and Gavin go from friends to lovers this Christmas?
Yani Nicolaou is sworn off love for good. After fleeing a bad break-up in London, the only blood, sweat, and tears he has left are for his gyro stall at the Christmas market. Rebound fling? No thanks. He’s sticking to one-night-stands.
Ex-army vet Gavin Richie has even less capacity for romance. Managing a homeless shelter while recovering from injury keeps him far too busy. So what if he’s often alone? He’s content being single, or so he thinks until a chance meeting lights a spark he can’t ignore.
Yani is the warmth and affection Gavin hadn’t known he was missing. As Christmas lights up the city, their lives entwine in more ways than one. Falling for each other is easy. Holding on is harder, unless a hometown Christmas proves their love can last longer than the festive season.
Hometown Christmas is a standalone MM Christmas novella.

This is pretty much the perfect Christmas story. It’s not all tinsel and baubles, it’s more low key twinkling lights because it’s not all about Christmas. It’s a story that happens to take place in the run-up to Christmas.

Once again Garrett Leigh has created two highly likable men. There’s a grittiness about it because Gavin and Yani have their problems, they haven’t exactly walked in a straight line. Both men’s issues felt real and the Author tackled them extremely well.

Their first encounter was everything! That moment when you lock eyes with someone and the attraction is all-consuming. I could totally picture them standing in that coffee shop just staring at each other.

I was so happy to get another story by her set in the North of England. Leeds has become a kind of second home to me and I could picture vividly the Christmas market where Yani had his food stall.

Highly recommended! You’ll fall in love with Gavin and Yani, I’m sure! 💗
