Catching His Fire, by Christie Gordon

Jaime sees a man who’s hurting. Kaiden sees a man he can’t dismiss and might be the one who can help him heal.

Jaime Hadler was raised by two moms, who gave him the confidence he needed to be whoever he wants and to do what he loves. After working hard to build a successful motorcycle repair business, he’s finally ready to let go a little, hit the skate park more, and find a special someone to share his life with.

Kaiden Visser is merely surviving after enduring a painful miscarriage that destroyed his relationship with his girlfriend. It’s in his nature to make sure the people around him are taken care of, even if it means putting his own best interests aside. This fact coupled with the intense feelings he gets for men, makes him swear off any potential gay relationships.

When Kaiden walks into Jaime’s shop needing a mod for a new motorcycle, Jaime is excited to meet him. But when the work leaves a stray screw, Kaiden and Jaime get into a heated argument, one that continues under the influence of alcohol at the local quirky bar and ends explosively in a bathroom encounter. Jaime’s sure he’ll never see Kaiden again, but neither of them can get the encounter or their powerful chemistry out of their minds. As the encounters pile up each time they meet, they finally admit the inevitable and try starting something. But Kaiden’s not out and his ex-girlfriend has other plans. How do Jaime and Kaiden navigate the pitfalls of their budding relationship?

Like I Wished, by Charlie Novak (Dan Calley, narrator)

Dreaming about my best friend’s brother is one thing, him actually falling for me is another.

Baking cupcakes for the science department bake-off shouldn’t strike fear into the heart of chemistry teacher Noah, but his previous record hasn’t exactly been glowing. In an attempt to stave off another year in last place, Noah turns to the one man who might be able to help him: his best friend’s older brother, Spencer.

Noah’s had a crush on the vibrant and sporty footballer turned baker for years, but the chances of anything happening between them are slim to none. Spencer is caring, funny, gorgeous… and totally straight.

Spencer has never thought about dating men before, but after watching Noah lick buttercream off a whisk he’s suddenly realising he’s not as straight as previously thought.

Revelations about his sexuality are one thing, but his footballing past being dragged into the present is another and Spencer isn’t sure which is more stressful. But he’s sure about one thing: he wants Noah in his life. Now all they have to do is figure out how to make their wishes come true.

Like I Wished is a hot and heart-warming best friend’s brother contemporary MM romance featuring adorable ghost cupcakes, a bisexual awakening over baking, gate-crashed first dates, gym-bro besties, and lots of hot chocolate.

It is book two in the Heather Bay series and while it can be read as a standalone, it’s best enjoyed as part of the series.

Malicious Compliance, by E.M. Lindsey

There’s nothing like an epic fall from grace.

Relationship: over.
Career: trashed.
Home: lost.

And somehow, it gets worse when I move into a run-down apartment with a neighbor who’s made it his mission to make my life a living hell. Reeling from my tragic breakup, all I want to do is collect the shattered pieces of my life and put them back together in a shape I recognize, but it’s hard to do that when the jerk next door is keeping me up all hours of the night.

Whatever he does with his loud woodworking tools, obnoxious nineties punk music, and his constant complaints about my working hours, sleep is now a fantasy. Where I once composed music, I now spend my nights entertaining myself with visions of revenge.

But as the war between us continues, things start to shift, and I come to realize our lives might not be that different after all. Where I once loathed the sound of him singing Sex Pistols and using his table saw, now I’ve come to crave it. And I’m starting to think that maybe a faceless stranger I’ve never met might be the key to finding the man I’d lost the day I met my ex.

I’m not sure if the universe has any kindness in mind, but maybe during the holidays, I’ll find my way to hope.

Malicious Compliance is the first in a slow-burn, holiday romantic MM duet featuring enemy neighbors to lovers, the merits of the DIY punk scene, a series of bad dates, and an eventual steamy happily ever after. It is book 1 of the Loose Lips Sink Ships duet, ending in a small cliffhanger. Books must be read in order.

Instant Regret, by E.M. Lindsey

There’s nothing like having your sanctuary destroyed.

My life has been a series of carefully cultivated, strategic moves to ensure peace and quiet. I’m generally a happy guy but there’s one thing I can’t stand: having my space invaded. After all, that’s why I chose this run-down building that no one wants to live in.

And then he moved in.

The obnoxious, arrogant classical musician who spent his first night banging on the wall and insulting my playlist.

But as much as it’s been fun driving him up the wall, I start to see the cracks in his holier-than-thou demeanor—which I suppose is impressive for a blind man.

Something about his life is more tragic than I want to think about, and it doesn’t take more than a few kind words to get him to open up.

Where I once wanted to torment him until he moved out, now all I can think about is how he’d feel in my arms. I’m not sure if he’s willing to give me a chance after everything I’ve done, but this Christmas, I have hope.

And this New Year’s Eve—if luck is on my side—I’ll be ringing it in with the one man I will never let go.

Instant Regret is the second book of the holiday duet featuring a smartass woodworker, a tired best friend, a wooing plan with deep enough cracks you could see through to the core of the earth, and the sweetest, steamiest happily ever after. Malicious Compliance and Instant Regret must be read in order.

Choose Me, by Beck Grey

Jules:

I’ve been in love with my brother’s best friend since I was twelve, and twenty years later, Erik Osouf is still so far out of my league, we aren’t even playing the same sport. Not that I play sports. That means talking to people, and my social anxiety makes that all but impossible.

It also makes my brother incredibly overprotective, and while I love that Stef always has my back, it’s why I still can’t tell Erik how I feel. It would wreck their friendship, and after everything Stef’s done for me, I won’t ever be the cause of that. I just wish my heart would get that memo.

Erik:

For years I thought of Jules Evans as the quiet, sweet kid who regularly crushed me at Mario Kart, and let fireflies loose in our camping tent. Then he accidentally admits he’s in love with me. He doesn’t remember saying anything, and I’d never embarrass him by mentioning it, but since then I can’t stop thinking about kissing him.

If it was anyone else, I’d probably have told them how I feel by now. But he’s my best friend’s younger brother. The same best friend who told me Jules is off-limits. That makes this all kinds of impossible. Unless I can convince them both I’m the right man for Jules.

Choose Me is a 70,000 word low angst, brother’s best friend, contemporary MM romance about flawed but devoted families, taking chances, and sweet cinnamon roll Vikings. It contains no cheating, and a guaranteed HEA.
