So I’ve started reading Christmas stories, apparently. Ugly Christmas Sweater by Tara Harris. I haven’t read anything by Tara Harris before, but the title snagged my attention LOL.
Joel is a shy, quiet guy who’s had a crush on his friend Nick for ages so when Nick calls him and asks him to come to a mutual friend’s Christmas party Joel says yes. On the way there, he learns that it’s an ugly Christmas sweater party but not worry, Nick has a sweater for him.
This is a cute, funny, friends to lovers story. Sometimes it was a bit hard to know who was saying what and another round of proofreading might have been good, but the idea was fun.
Looking for more Christmas books? Check out my collection.
But what happens when the ugly Christmas sweaters come off?
When his gorgeous friend Nick invites him to an ugly Christmas sweater party, Joel can’t say no. Even though going on a non-date with the guy he’s been crushing on forever is officially a Bad Idea. But who’d have thought Nick could look so hot in a Christmas tree sweater with actual blinking lights?
When the sweater Nick lends Joel turns out to be baby blue with flying bunny reindeer, Joel feels like a total dork. In fact, he’s ready to spend the whole party hiding in the bathroom. But something in Nick’s eyes gives him a sudden surge of confidence. If things go Joel’s way, he might end up on Santa’s naughty list this year.
This sweet bit of holiday fluff is for a mature audience. It has a happy ending, no cliffhanger, and a deliciously gooey center.
