ARC Review: Secret Santa by Jay Northcote


Theo hardly has time to date. Between work and caring for his four-year-old son there aren’t many hours left over. He’s lonely though, so he joins a hook-up app and starts chatting to a guy called Luke. Luke seems friendly and they arrange to meet. Theo doesn’t mention that he has a child. It’s early days and he’s worried about putting Luke off before they get to know each other.

Luke is currently working as Santa at the local shopping mall. He figures Theo never has to know. Christmas will be over soon and Luke will move on to a new, less embarrassing job. He’s surprised when Theo and a little boy visit Santa one afternoon. Theo doesn’t recognise Luke, and Luke realises he’s not the only one with a secret.

Despite misgivings on both sides, they start dating, and the chemistry is amazing. But as Christmas approaches their secrets pile up like colourful packages under the tree. If they’re not careful, they’ll lose the best gift of all—each other.

Dani's rating:


- drama

- Big Misunderstanding

- reindeer games


- two guys hoping they find more than a quick shag through a hookup app

- cute kid

- candy cane dildo

Santa likes the naughty boys too, and Luke has high hopes for the Geeky Guy he meets on Grindr.

When Luke realizes Theo is keeping a secret, he decides to let Theo tell him when he's ready. Unfortunately, small deceptions spiral out of control, and Santa is outed by a dinosaur!

Never fear! Open communication & honesty save the day. *gasps* You don't say?

Secret Santa is a charming, cozy story, as sweet as a gingerbread latte but with a deliciously sexy flair.

I've been a fan of Jay Northcote's writing from the very beginning. He writes uniquely British stories about ordinary blokes doing ordinary things but finding extraordinary love.

Cheers! I'll drink to that.
