Jay Northcote - A Family for Christmas, Review Tour

A Family For Christmas - 

Jay Northcote

Cover Design: Garrett Leigh

Release: November 18, 2016

Length: 45,000 words

Zac never had a family of his own, but Rudy has enough to share. 
Shy, inexperienced Rudy has a crush on Zac from the moment his new colleague walks through the door. On an office night out before Christmas, Rudy finds the courage to make a move, and they form a tentative bond. When he discovers Zac will be alone at Christmas, he invites Zac to come home with him.
Zac prefers to keep people at arm’s length. Yet when Rudy offers him a family Christmas it’s impossible to resist. With no parents of his own, Zac is pleasantly surprised to be welcomed by Rudy’s. The only drawback is that everyone assumes they’re a couple. Unwilling to disappoint Rudy’s mum and make Christmas awkward, they decide not to deny it.
It’s not a chore for Zac to pose as Rudy’s boyfriend, but the pretence makes him want things that scare him—things like a real relationship with Rudy. Zac’s suffered enough rejection in his life already and is afraid to risk his heart. If he can get over his past rejection and let Rudy inside his armour, he might get more for Christmas than he ever imagined.

Review: He's done it again, everything Jay writes I fall in love with. I adored Rudy and Zac. Each man needed so much more than what they had in their lives but both were scared to go for what they wanted. Rudy had the perfect life growing up and now wants someone to love him for who he is, a gay man who does not have the perfect body but who does have the biggest heart to give all his love. Then you have Zac, who had the worst life growing up but has a fantastic body but thinks he will never find love because he can't open himself up enough to trust. Spending the Christmas holiday alone is not what Zac wants so when Rudy asks him to join him and his family Zac jumps at the chance. 
Misunderstanding and a few family members jumping to conclusions puts these two closer together than they expected to be for the holidays. I loved this Christmas story about one shy, dorkable man and one much-needing love man come together to form a great couple.
