A Brat for Kinkmas (Naughty or Nice Season Three) by J.P. Sayle
#Contemporary, #MM, #Romance, #Mafia, #Seasonal, #Daddy,
Can two men from different walks of life cross the barriers between them in order to find and keep love?
Beau Lester is a social butterfly in heels. He has it all—friends, family, and a job he loves—but wants more. When he meets Zivkovic, Beau believes the man is everything he wants and needs. Until Zivkovic disappears, crushing his heart. Then Ziv reappears, but will Beau be willing to pick up where they left off?
Brought up on the streets of Serbia, Zivkovic Zamen has fought hard to gain fear and respect from his peers. Life is all about knowing where the next attack might come from. Nothing can prepare him for dealing with an attack on his heart. Now he’s fighting for survival but he doesn’t know the rules of the game. The stakes are higher than they’ve ever been because he’s got much more to lose─Beau.
A Brat for Kinkmas is an age gap, sizzling hot romance, with a Mafia Daddy and a boy who knows his own mind. It’s part of the Naughty or Nice Season Three multi-author series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but there are so many Daddies and boys finding their happily ever afters, why not grab them all?

3 out of 5 (good)
A BRAT FOR KINKMAS is J.P. Sayle's addition to the Naughty or Nice Season #3 and you really need to take notice of the title! I've come to the conclusion that I definitely like the caring/nurturing daddies and sweet boys more than I like domineering daddies and bratty boys. It was a bit of a surprise for me as I like some books that are heavier on the BDSM side than this was. I think it's the daddy side of things that does it for me.
Anyway, moving on from my crisis, Beau and Ziv are hot on the page! Beau is a lover of pain, and Ziv has no issue providing it! Beau is friends with Jessie and Patrick, both of whom I have previously met. He says he wants a relationship just like theirs. I personally don't think that is what he wanted, but he was definitely happy with how the relationship with Ziv worked. It works for him and that's the main thing. Ziv isn't all cuddly as Smithy. He is more protective than Akker - maybe because of his life. He is definitely more dubious in morals than the others, but he does love Beau in his own way.
I did enjoy this story. I found Ziv's backstory to be heartbreaking and how it (obviously) had an impact on his views as he grew up. Beau is a pain but loveable. Beau and Ziv are good together and the epilogue was just perfect. It didn't work as well for me as with other stories in the Cuff'd range, but it was still a great story that I'm sure others will love.

Where does one start with about what I do?
I’m a writer, but I’m sure you guessed that by now if you’re reading this, hey? What you might not know is I’m a little quirky, live in my pj’s most of the time and have cake Saturdays with my sisters every week. I dedicate a little of my time to taking care of my grandbabies and on the dedicated writing days I like to write an eclectic mix of romance, suspense and paranormal fantasy. In the main I’ve written gay romance but I’m branching out under another the pen name in the future, so watch this space.
I’ve a passion for books like you would not believe and it led me down this path and now I’ve over 29 books released and heading towards releasing a whole lot more. The way my head is I never know where I’ll be headed next. I hope you’ll find a little joy in my words and follow me to see where the journey takes me and you.
If you’re interested at some point in 2021 I’ll be writing under the name JP Paton which will be F/M crime and Fantasy two of my favourite things. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled. 🙂
