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.

I read Keira Andrews’ The Christmas Deal when it came out at the end of 2019 and really enjoyed it. I’d hoped maybe it would come to audio in time for the festive season this year and hey – look! Santa came early 😉 It’s a sweet and sexy fake-relationship romance with no overblown angst or drama (well, maybe a teeny bit of drama); a feel-good story featuring engaging characters, a well-deserved HEA and plenty of warm fuzzies.
Former Marine Logan Derwood is really struggling. Finding it hard to get work after a serious accident at work for which he was blamed and hung out to try, he’s facing eviction from his crappy bungalow and can see no option but to move in with his sister Jenna and her family, which he really doesn’t want to do. On top of this, the sudden death of his wife from an aneurysm some months earlier has left him sole guardian to her teenaged son, Connor, who is surly and confrontational, and for whom Logan can seem to do nothing right.
