Book Review: Merry & Sprite (Holiday in Sunset Surf Book 1) by Dani Lakely

When Jonathan is spelled to grant the Christmas wishes of people around town, Forrest offers to help. Jonathan mostly finds Forrest insufferable, except for the part of him that has a secret crush on the man, but Forrest isn't the relationship type, and Jonathan isn't ready to have his heart broken again.

This is a super short review for me to be doing it as a full review on my blog, but I don’t do mini review posts anymore, and I wanted to make sure people knew about this book, because…

This was adorable! Not exactly “enemies to lovers,” more like “begrudging crush on someone who annoys him as much as he attracts him to lovers.” And not exactly “grumpy + sunshine,” more like “orderly and closed off + spontaneous and flirty.” It was a super cute relationship, and the build up felt so believable because they already knew each other but it still took a bit of time for the feelings to progress and change. And we really got to see them spending a lot of time together and growing closer and learning more about each other. I could really feel the romantic tension and the growing (or realization of) feelings Jonathan had for Forrest. This made me smile and laugh and gave me the warm fuzzies. There was also a bit of magic and a heap of Christmas cheer. If you’re looking for a cute and sexy queer Christmas romance with a bit of magic, I highly recommend this one!
