Geoffrey Saxon is in his forties, a bit plump, a lot fuzzy, and rather boring in bed—and thanks to a very public breakup, everyone in his street knows it. However, what they don’t know is that Geoffrey sometimes watches his hot young neighbor, Vaughn, in the pool. Vaughn has invited Geoffrey to join his pool parties, but Geoffrey knows it’s only pity.
As if things can’t get worse, Geoffrey’s air conditioner breaks during a heat wave in Western Australia—and just before Christmas. In search of some relief, he camps out in his backyard, where he also has a prime view of Vaughn swimming… naked. When Geoffrey’s injured falling from his spying post, Vaughn comes to his rescue and Geoffrey doesn’t think he can be more horrified.
But he could be in for a sweet holiday surprise. Is he ready to take the dive?
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2018 Advent Calendar "Warmest Wishes."

A sweet, slow burn, Christmas love story.
I adore this time of year as so many wonderful Christmas novellas flood the online stores. Given the central theme is Christmas there are nevertheless remarkably varied plot-lines, albeit with lots of romance, little or no angst, and HEA’s. I love a good HEA at Christmas. Slow Summer Heat by Renae Kaye has all that and more.
Geoffrey Saxon is not looking forward to Christmas this year. Last Christmas he was recovering from a very public break up and aside from glimpses of his hot young neighbor has led an isolated existence. Being in his early forties, somewhat chubby and quite hairy Geoffrey can’t envision anyone, let alone his gorgeous neighbor, being interested. Given the fact that said neighbor overheard his boyfriend casting aspersions on his sexual ability and adventurousness, Geoffrey would rather hide out in his house than accept repeated invitations to pool parties next door.
Vaughn Maalouf is a young man on a mission. He keeps catching glimpses of his deliciously shy neighbor and is determined to find a way for them to properly meet. The last thing he expects is for Geoffrey to crash into his life via a rather spectacular fall in his backyard. Grabbing the opportunity to save the day, and the man he can’t stop thinking about, Vaughn climbs to the rescue and finally gets Geoffrey where he wants him; barely dressed and inside his home.
In the week leading up to Christmas a determined young man and a broken air conditioner conspire to bring these two lovely men together at last. Christmas just might be all these men could wish for, and a HEA might be the best present of all.
I loved both of the MC’s and their slow burn romance. Vaughn was exactly the kind of man to bring Geoffrey out of his self imposed shell as he took his time to get to know the man who had been tantalizing him for months. Their chemistry was sweet and perfect and I thoroughly enjoyed the development of their relationship.
A delightful Christmas read.
