One broken collarbone, two stubborn men, three interfering chefs, four weeks to go, five chewed garlands, and The Pear Tree covered in snow…

Ben’s Christmas Plans:

1. Finish the staff schedules, get the orders done, and make sure the next month runs smoothly because December is hell.
2. Break collarbone at rugby.
3. Scrap all plans. Drag Ianto in to help.
4. Avoid staring at the gorgeous Welshman, even if he does look surprisingly hot in a Christmas jumper…
5. Remember how much of a pain Christmas is.

Ianto’s Christmas Plans:

1. Take Ben to hospital after accidentally injuring him, even though it wasn’t my fault.
2. Feel very guilty and offer to help Ben with his epic to-do list since he refuses to take time off.
3. Eat my body weight in Patrick’s mince pies.
4. Learn how to tie ribbon bows that don’t look squashed.
5. Try not to fall for the very grumpy Yorkshireman who hates Christmas.

Spiced Kisses is a 78,000-word contemporary MM Christmas romance featuring a lengthy to-do list, holiday hot chocolate, a workaholic who hates December, a Welsh personal trainer who loves it, some very interfering staff, and a little Christmas magic.

My review: 

Can I tell you how much I love this series?! Because I really do. I love how Charlie writes kitchen romances, they are so realistic and so romantic, just aww!

Ben and Ianto's story was lovely and so magical. I love Christmas romances and it was so sweet. It got me really in the mood for the holiday and I might have put up all my Christmas decor after reading it? Sorry? LOL

Ben is super sweet, but workaholic (not a surprise, who isn't in the restarurant business hahaha). I loved him in the previous book too and was really excited to finally read his HEA. Ianto was a new addition to the Pear Tree group but I liked him to. These two were just perfect for each other.

Oh and my favorite, the start of every chapter, those little text echanges between the other guys, how to make Ben&Ianto to fall in love, adorable.

I really enjoyed reading this book and this series. I already told it, but Charlie writes realistic kitchen scenes, and I love her for it.

Author Bio

Charlie lives in England with her husband and a dachshund named Biscuit. She spends most of her days wrangling other people’s words in her day job and then trying to force her own onto the page in the evening.

She loves cute stories with a healthy dollop of fluff, plenty of delicious sex, and happily ever afters — because the world needs more of them. Charlie also believes that love comes in all shapes and sizes.

Charlie has very little spare time, but what she does have she fills with cooking, pole-dancing, reading and ice-hockey. She also thinks that everyone should have at least one favourite dinosaur…
