    Description

    Will fake boyfriends become the real deal this holiday? 

    It’s the most wonderful time of the year - except ex-Marine Logan is jobless and getting evicted. Worse, he’s a new single dad with a stepson who hates him. A kid needs stability - not to mention presents under the tree - and Logan’s desperate. 

    Then he meets lonely Seth and makes a deal. 

    Can Logan temporarily pretend to be live-in boyfriends to increase Seth’s chances at a promotion? If it provides a roof over their heads for the holidays, hell yeah. Logan considers himself straight - he doesn’t count occasional hookups with guys - but he can fake it. Besides, with his shy little smile, Seth is surprisingly sexy. 

    Make that damn sexy. 

    Shocked that Seth has only been with one man, Logan can’t resist sweetening their deal to teach him the joys of casual sex. No strings attached. No feelings. No kissing. 

    No falling for each other. 

    Easy, right? 

    The Christmas Deal is a steamy holiday gay romance from Keira Andrews featuring fake boyfriends, bisexual awakening, a clueless single dad with an angry preteen, and of course a happy ending.

    Incredible Story

    The Christmas Deal by Keira Andrews is one of my favorite holiday stories. These men could not be more lost as they enter the holiday season. What begins as fake boyfriends by chance… quickly becomes a bisexual awakening, with a holiday miracle, for two men who desperately need something to fulfill their lives. What neither expects is for the other to possess the allusive need that comes with another… forever.

    John Solo’s narration of this incredible story only serves to amplify its intensity. His ability to capture the situation appears seamless and his voice gives amazing clarity to the individual characters. The sign of a truly great narrator is when you are drawn into the story and the feelings of each and every moment resonate through you, which is absolutely what Mr. Solo creates here.

    Logan Derwood was involved in an unfortunate train accident where the blame was unjustly placed upon him. This has limited his ability to find steady work and, on top of that, he is the sole guardian of his angry teenage stepson following his wife’s death. Logan has always considered himself straight. Never mind the “get off” sessions with other men, they were just a means to fulfill a need. He just never envisioned himself in a relationship with another man no matter how hot the blowjobs were... that is until Seth Marston.

    Seth Marston is the adorable quintessential strait-laced buttoned up geeky gay. Tarnished by a bad breakup he is reluctant to put himself out there again. Combined with the fact that he was tossed out by his ultra-conservative homophobic family, he is lonely with only his career to focus upon. He desperately seeks a family of his own.

    The premise behind The Christmas Deal isn’t new or overly complex but it stands apart from others, since neither man concocts the scheme. They are being bamboozled into playing along, as the conspiracy quickly becomes known as “the caper” and snowballs out of control. Jenna, Logan’s sister and Seth’s co-worker, hilariously throws Logan and Seth together to provide Seth with the means to achieve the promotion he deserves, and at the same time inadvertently provides temporary reprieve from homelessness for Logan and his stepson Connor.

    Forced to play “family”, Seth opens his home to Logan and Connor and in return Logan helps Seth complete the home renovations Seth abandoned after his breakup. They have a dinner to host, pretending to be the perfect family for Seth’s family-oriented boss to secure his promotion. The resulting feelings are hidden behind some no strings attached fun. Who are they trying to fool? And maybe Logan isn’t as straight as he once thought.

    Unfortunately, it takes a tragedy for walls between not only Logan and Seth to collapse, but to bring down the barriers between Connor and Logan as well. It is a tearjerker scene that solidifies Seth, Logan, and Connor as a family in a manner where you know they will survive the tough times, while reveling in the joy they bring each other, as they let go of the past and look forward to the future.

    The Christmas Deal is what I refer to as a “Hallmark Holiday” but with significantly more depth. The holidays are in full swing with plentiful decorations, snow, sledding, holiday music, you name it. Seth and Logan may not have planned all of this, but the enchantment of the season gives it to them anyway. Additional intensity is provided by perfect timing that brings two vastly different men together, forcing discoveries that give them hope, with a reason to evaluate who they are and what they seek. And… I’d say the epilogue is one of the best presents one could ever receive.

    Loved it!

    While I have been OD'ing on mm Christmas romances, I have to say this was one of my favorites. I loved the two MCs, even though I was on the fence early on when it came to Logan. But in the end, he didn't disappoint. Seth was easy to love - even if he was OTT a bit (no swearing, "clean"). But it's kind of decadent for a good boy being so into dirty talk.

    And my guilty pleasure is a very satisfying epilogue really showing a strong HEA.

    The narration was spot on.

    Perfectly balances emotion and steam!

    I enjoyed this fake fiance/fake relationship Christmas M/M Romance so much! This is my second time reading this book, the first was in e-book, and I had forgotten how emotional it was. John Solo narrated it beautifully, bringing out the emotion in every syllable and character. I was so excited when I heard he was doing this Keira book as well, he has become one of my favorite narrators.
    It had a lot of depth I was not expecting, The author managed to pack in a lot into these characters and I loved it! It had: friends-to-lovers, fake relationship, bi-awakening, OFY, a kid, found family- all of my favorite romance tropes and themes.

    Logan, the straight single step-dad has a lot on his plate, he is desperate, and so is Seth. They end up in a fake relationship so fast it takes them some time to understand what it going on. Dealing with an angry teenager and looking for a job, Logan is sort of gruff, yet he is so gentle with Seth and really helps him blossom into a proud man. Seth was so endearing, his life was in a stand-still after he broke up with his ex, and his unfinished house is a true metaphor for his life. Logan helps him finish the renovation, makes the house a home, and makes Seth accept himself too.
    Their romance is steamy and super satisfying with their wonderful HEA.

    enjoyed it

    📖 Took me a while to warm up to Logan's character, but overall I enjoyed The Christmas Deal. The pace was good, the characters felt real and the story was well written. 😊 I'd be happy to listen to it again. 🎧 John Solo did a good performance with the characters, he has good inflections and intonations and it was easy to feel the emotions of the story. I did find times when the rhythm was slightly off and the narration felt a little stilted, but it was only a minor thing and not enough to pull me from the story.

    Oh,my!

    What a great heartfelt and endearing Christmas story. It doesn’t even need a Christmas theme, it’s just so good.

    Fun Fake Relationship Holiday Audiobook

    I can always count on Keira Andrews for an enjoyable story and The Christmas Deal is no exception. Single Dad, Fake Relationships, & Opposites Attract are some of my favorite tropes, and I’ve definitely been in the mood for some holiday-themed books, so this was a good fit. It’s also a complete stand alone.

    Logan, 37, is grumpy, recovering from an injury, out of a job, and about to be homeless. To top it off he’s the only parent to his deceased wife’s son, Conner. Being a step-parent doesn’t come naturally. Seth, 38, is workmates & friends with Logan’s sister Jenna. When a work situation forces Seth into inventing a family – Jenna loans him Logan & Conner. The caper begins!

    While it is successful in contrasting Seth’s “buttoned-up” persona and is consistent with Logan’s character, the plethora of cuss words did feel like a bit much at times given that this is a holiday-themed book. Overall the story is at turns sweet, sad, and funny; Logan coming to terms with his true feelings for Seth, Seth worried about falling in love with a straight man, and Conner struggling to find his place in what has been an unstable world. These come together nicely and ultimately this is an enjoyable Christmas listen.

    The initial ending is an HFN as Logan & Seth recognize that going even though they’re going from pretend to real – it is a burgeoning relationship. Andrews provides a lovely 5-years-later epilogue that solidifies the HEA.

    John Solo does a good job here. All the characters have distinct and consistent voices. Solo, as always, does a terrific job evoking emotions and he really brings this story to life.

    Sweet & Sexy Holiday Treat!!

    A delightfully spicy Christmas Deal!! It took some warming up to John Solo's narration, but soon grew to enjoy his sweet, sexy voice. This was a genuine find, and thoroughly enjoyed her tender and explicit Christmas romp!! Her guys were very sweet and earthy, with an interesting story.

    Omg The Feels

    This author continues to amaze me. Here she took a common trope (fake boyfriends) but elevated it. She nailed the drama of a man discovering his sexuality while dealing with a surly teenager. A plus for the writing and the narration.

    Not too sugary or too angsty

    I enjoyed this audiobook. The trope is a common one, but Keira Andrews puts a unique spin on it with elements of grief, unexpected parenthood, and found family. Logan’s self discovery was believable, but not too angsty. Seth is the kind of character that I think John Solo narrates particularly well, kind of shy but curious and tough when he needs to be. John Solo can be hit or miss for me, but I think he did a really good job here.

    Sehr süß!!

    Der Sprecher macht einen super Job und erweckt die verschiedenen Charaktere zum Leben.
    Man bekommt auch die Gedanken der beiden Hauptdarsteller zu hören. Da ist eine Menge Unsicherheit im Spiel aber so sind wir Menschen eben.
    Zum Ende hin noch ein bisschen Drama, das aber auch dabei hilft, viele Themen zu klären. Und ein denkbares Drama i.V. mit Angela lässt die Autorin aus - dafür war ich dankbar.
    Weihnachten spielt durchaus eine wichtige Rolle, daher sollte man dieses Hörbuch bevorzugt im Dezember hören. 🎄
