Ever since Jesse has worked with Kaye on a TV show, he has harbored a crush on the sexy actor. Jesse left Hollywood behind when he saw that loving Kaye was not enough. He needed Kaye to love him in return. Now ten years later, Kaye turns up on his doorstep and it will take a Christmas miracle to get Jesse and Kaye what they desire the most-each other.

This hot, sweet holiday story will surely get you in the mood for the holidays. Zahra Owens tells a story of a man who finds the one person he wants with every fiber of his being, on his doorstep ten years after he last saw him. It will take lots of heart to heart truths for him to let Kaye back into his life. But Kaye has a few tricks up his sleeve and he is determined to show Jesse that he is the man for him-finally.

HAPPINESS FOR BEGINNERS is a well written tale that will leave you breathless till the very end. It’s a short novella so I don’t want to go into too many details, in case you haven’t read it yet. The author does a great job in creating a set of characters that are very life like and believable. I could empathize with Jesse as he tried to shield his heart from being broken yet again and for Kaye, who was as confused as ever, yet knew he needed Jesse in his life.

This is an author who knows how to let the characters shine and the reader gets a sense of who they are, warts and all. The connection between Jesse and Kaye is electric, sweet and sexy at the same time. You could see the sparks fly between them even as you rooted for these two to get their own Christmas miracle.

I can’t wait to explore more of this author’s work. If you are looking for a sweet yet hot tale to spice up your holidays, then grab HAPPINESS FOR BEGINNERS and settle in for a few hours of reading pleasure. I look forward to seeing what else this author can conjure up in the future.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
