But this is Jocelynn Drake, author of the Unbreakable Bonds series and one of my favorite books of , Shatter. So, an exception was made and I dove in for some Christmas cheer.
Spencer is your stereotypical gay millionaire with no time for dating or romance. He picks up men in bars for one-night-stand sex. And nothing else. Evan is a man with a broken heart, for more reasons than one, who is SO OVER the one night stand business that he refuses Spencer's charming and sexy advances. Spencer is surprised that someone would turn him down he's handsome, sexy, charming, rich, etc. Skip ahead a few days and Spencer has Evan agreeing to spend the weekend with Spencer's family, posing as his boyfriend.
So, you've probably heard this plot before. I have and thought I would be a bit bored with a fake-boyfriend Christmas story where the family members are utterly delightful and everyone has a lovely time. But, again, this is Jocelynn Drake, Queen of dirty talk and passion. And she brings it with the dirty talk. And the passion. Oh yeah! Leave your angst behind, don't expect a deep plot or car chases or werewolves and enjoy the sexy early holiday gift from Ms. PS: Since this is my first review since the election, I have to get this off my chest. Fuck Trump.

Galley copy of Walking on Thin Ice provided by the author in exchange of an honest review. This review is also posted at Gay Book Reviews View all 23 comments. Very sexy read with a satisfying ending! I loved Evan, and Spenser was quite a softie beneath the cold, jaded exterior. Spencer's family, minus the bigoted grandpa, was wonderful. There was some drama with Spenser being unable unwilling? This was my first book by this author, but I don't think it will be the last.

Skating on thin ice: a misleading metaphor
Okay, brace yourselves. Here comes the gushing. I was in the mood for something happy and light , which is precisely what the book delivered.
Seeing Spencer and Evan spending time together was electric on page, despite Spencer's claim that he doesn't date and Evan's claim that he doesn't do one night stands. From the diner scene on the first night that they met, you could just tell that, given a chance , these two guys Okay, brace yourselves.
From the diner scene on the first night that they met, you could just tell that, given a chance , these two guys would be nothing short of incredible together. And that chance came in the form of Spencer's invitation to Evan to spend a long Christmas weekend with his family. And Spencer's family? God, how I loved every single one of them. These are how supporting characters are meant to be written, with very distinct, strong and humorous personalities.
I was also amazed how, in spite of being insanely wealthy, Spencer's family, with their large, yet comfortable mansion, never came across as privileged and showy.

There were feelings and sparks galore and, although there was an almost insta-love happening, the romance didn't come across as rushed or unbelievable. Then when it came to sex , Jesus, these two definite knew how to git 'er done. Those scenes were hot and steamy, as well as very touching. Never did I roll my eyes and think ' porny ,' which can be a very difficult thing to achieve in stories like this.
He is the reason that Spencer is still in the closet. But, thankfully, the dramatic parts and ensuing separation are short-lived, then the reader is back to the same feel good read, with a solid HEA shaping up. So I'm giving this one 4. View all 24 comments. Much better than I even imagined.

After reading the blurb, I was expecting this to feel kinda cookie-cutter Spenser I never did get used to the spelling of his name - it just looks weird to me? Evan quickly brings out the softer, charming and endearing side of Spenser.

Evan is not a "one and done" kind of guy.
