Under the Christmas lights strung outside a snowy Minnesota cabin, Ryker and Jacob face a future where nothing will be the same again.

Fortunate timing means that Ryker and Jacob can spend a few days together over Christmas in a cabin on the family farm. What’s better is that Scott and Ben are coming as well, with Hayne and Ethan in tow. Ryker can’t imagine a better way to spend time with the man he loves, and the friends he misses, and somehow he knows that this Christmas will be the best one ever. Hockey on a frozen pond, kisses under Christmas lights, and sharing time with Jacob are the best gifts he could ever receive.

Long distance relationships are brutal, Jacob can attest to that fact. So, when Ryker gets a few days off over the Raptors’ Christmas break, the hard-working Minnesota farmer is beyond thrilled. When they find out that their buddies from Owatonna U. are making the trip as well, the holidays are looking to be just about perfect. Jacob has a question for Ryker burning in his heart, and he isn’t asking for much—just a few fun-filled days with old friends and a yes from the man of his dreams.

Carra's Review

I’m so glad the authors decided to surprise us all with this holiday story with the Owatonna U guys!  It was great to see them again, and of course the anticipation of that burning question Jacob has for Ryker just upped the ante for the whole story.

With Ryker and Jacob being apart so much now (Ryker playing hockey, though professionally now, and Jacob now back working the family farm), it makes things difficult for them but also makes the time they do spend together more intense and meaningful—and it also shows them how much they love and miss each other.  Both have the stresses of their work, though for Jacob that rises to a whole new level here in this story.

Some of what happens will make your heart a bit sad, but it also leads to things that reinforce exactly how deeply Ryker and Jacob feel for one another…which will definitely bring a smile to your face.  And there’s just enough steam to keep things more than interesting ;-)

Christmas Lights is a wonderful look at all the guys, but it’s particularly meaningful for Ryker and Jacob, and I found this to be an excellent follow up story for them.  4.5 stars, and those steamy scenes plus the adult language do mean this book is meant for readers 18+.
