Summary

One lonely lawyer. Twelve blind dates. Finding his special someone will take a Christmas miracle.

Aiden would rather eat an entire fruitcake than face his ex and his ex’s new boyfriend at their company holiday party - especially by himself. So, when his best friend suggests he find some arm candy, Aiden reluctantly agrees to a few blind dates.

Aiden doesn’t expect a dozen perfect matches, but one disastrous night after another is killing his Christmas spirit, and time is running out. There has to be a special guy out there Aiden can kiss under the mistletoe. Right?

The Twelve Dates of Christmas is a 31,000-word MM romance featuring five horny singles, four garlic cheese fries, three IPAs, two naked trees, and a jingle bell head injury. This feel-good story is filled with humor, heart, and a happy-ever-after perfect for the holidays.

A Cute Christmas Story

I had read this book (a couple of times it turns out!), but I really liked the audio version more than I thought I would. Initially I thought the pacing was just a hair fast HOWEVER that is made up for by the voicing of the female character. Aiden's best friend Chelsea plays a not insignificant part of this story. Sometimes I struggle when male narrators voice female characters, but Michael Lesley did a great job there and that really makes the narration worth it to me. I really, really enjoyed how bad Aiden's dates were (that trivia game though--WELL PLAYED). Sometimes it can be uncomfortable watching one MC date other people, but in this case the dates were so bad that it's funny instead of uncomfortable. Overall a super cute Christmas story that I'm still listening to even though it's February because if 2020 taught us anything why not?

LOVED IT

This is the only Christmas book I read this year and I’m so glad I did! The clever story and witty dialogue is so well written and the narrator is a perfect match.

a holiday short story

This is a really sweet holiday short story as Aiden doesn't want to show up to his company holiday party alone while his ex is there with his new boyfriend. Chelsea, Aiden's best friend, uses a dating app and sets him up on dates in the hopes Aiden finds someone to take to the party. I found this book a little predictable but sweet nonetheless. I was glad Aiden not only found a date to the party but so much more. Definitely recommend.
Narrator Michael Lesley does a fabulous job. He really got into the story.

Cute & Sweet!!

This was a really cute, sweet and charming Christmas story. Very low on angst. It's also very low on steam, but was still charming enough to make up for it.

As for the narration. I know this is probably personal preference, but I didn't like the narration at all. It was pulling me out of the story, especially with the laughing. But, it wasn't awful, so I still gave it 3 stars for that part.
