Disclaimer: I received an electronic ARC of this novella from the author.

‘Tis the season for holiday treats, and Fox provides an amazing present to her readers in the form of a return to our favorite gym for combat vets. Caleb is not a combat vet in the traditional sense, but he has just finished fighting a war of his own, and he’s come to Wrecked to seek refuge with his formerly estranged brother. There, he catches the eye of another member of the extended Wrecked family. Caleb and Jordan working together sparks feelings between the men that are unexpected but entirely welcome, and the resulting love story is the perfect holiday blend of spice and sweetness.

Faith is an important through-line of this story, but Fox makes the elements of this theme accessible to all readers, regardless of their religious persuasion (or lack thereof). I say this as someone who falls into the latter category, and I still ended this delightful novella with a huge smile and a lovely dose of warm fuzzies.

Fans of Fox’s amazing interconnected book series should definitely not miss out on this holiday story, no matter what time of year it is.

Rating: 5 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
