A "Not Quite Christmas" Story

Although I had some trouble getting into this book I think Sam’s Review by Jan Irving is worth the effort.

Sam Masterson is a wheelchair bound disable Marine with a helluva lot on his plate. Until recently he was living on the streets now he’s juggling trying to raise his nephew, take care of his Aunt Audra’s building, business and tenants as well as looking for the man who put his aunt in the hospital. Oh and now the huge hole in the side of the building.

Enter Trevor Hollander the architect he meets when he goes to the construction company that is building an eyesore next to his. Trevor (Tall is Sam’s nickname for him) and Sam are instantly attracted to one another. And together they try to sort out all of Sam’s problems.

Jan Irving has a way of making her characters seem more real than fantasy. Even though I had to go back and re read some parts of this book I really loved the premise of the story and Sam and Tall are truly wonderful men. I would like to read more about them. 

Book Blurb for Sam's Reviews

Genre: BDSM LGBT Mystery/Suspense
Length: Novel

As the holiday season draws near, Sam Masterson, a former marine in a wheelchair, has more holiday unspirit than spirit going for him. He owns a building where a lot of misfits make a home and his neighborhood is threatened because of a shiny new development going up. He heads uptown to speak his mind to the man behind the monstrosity. Architect Tall Hollander is not what he expects -- tall like his name, but sexy and up front about finding Sam attractive.

Sam also has other pressures -- a brutal thief known as The Bruiser is haunting the area, he has sole custody of his vulnerable nephew Joey, and his latest gay romance has just been rejected because it's too "unrealistic." So Sam escapes into fantasy, the only place where he finds the passion he hungers for. That is, until Tall decides to use his creativity to spark his holiday fire.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: BDSM elements, Domination/submission, male/male sexual practices.
