He doesn’t expect to find his high school boyfriend, Matty, has become a virtual member of Seb’s family. Back then, Matty only offered a casual relationship, but Seb fell hard, and history is soon repeating itself. Seb’s afraid to hope for a second chance, no matter how much they’ve grown and despite the family they share. Instead, he focuses on creating a last perfect holiday, which won’t be easy with his sister’s ex planning to take the girls over Christmas.
Seb and Matty might not know what to do about their feelings for each other, but one thing’s for sure—it won’t be Christmas without the kids. Can these star-crossed lovers pull off a holiday miracle?

After a long absence, Sebastian (Baz) returns home to his family. What was unexpected was seeing his high school sweetheart, Matty, in his old home. Playing uncle, brother, and son to Baz’s family. As they work through their various issues, Baz realizes he’s made a huge mistake in not coming home sooner.
Likable characters, participating in a small town, feel good Christmas. Some angst, some sexy times. Lots of family interaction.
The holidays bring so many books its hard to pick and choose what to read. This book had a decent storyline and was easy to get into. I liked it.
