My first Christmas read (an advance read from Riptide) and it wasn't bad at all.
I would have liked to give it a higher rating, but I found I had a hard time really warming up to the two main characters. For me they were just missing that 'something something'. YMMV of course! I think I just wanted more from them, y'know?
One HUGE positive for me was the mature age of the characters. Gray is in his 40s and Eddie is 28. I am SO over NA romances, so this was a big deal for me.
So, yeah, good way to start off the Christmas reading season. :)
