Audiobook Review: 'Tis the Season by Alex Jane

'Tis the Season by Alex Jane
Narrated by Michael Fell

Aaron has spent the past 10 months alone. When he meets a sad, yet strangely familiar man on a cold Halloween night, he impulsively invites him home. But the intimate connection they share lasts only until morning. Aaron wakes up alone - wracked with guilt and devastated to have lost his chance. Or so he thinks.

Thanksgiving brings Aaron another shot at happiness, but letting go of an old love and accepting a new one isn't as easy as everyone keeps telling him. And by the time Christmas Eve rolls around, it becomes clear that Aaron's not the only one struggling to let himself love again.

Christmas miracles are all well and good, but it's going to take more than the Holiday Spirit for Aaron to get his happy ever after.

A story of grief, sadness, and letting it go; and finding love when you least expect it.

Story: 5 Stars!
Narration: 4 Stars!
Overall: 4.5 Stars!

Aaron has been having a hard time letting go of his grief after his husband passed away ten months before, but after finding a slightly familiar guy on the bridge on Halloween night, his life takes a turn for good. After he wakes up alone the next day, though, he thinks he might have lost his chance. Only to have a new one given on Thanksgiving Day, now it'll be Aaron's decision to grab it or not.

This was such a sweet holiday story that spans from Halloween to Christmas. Aaron was very nice, even in his sadness. He was so sweet to Dylan, especially compared to Dylan's ex who was a twatwaffle. Dylan was a deeper character that I thought he'd be, even if he'd been crushing on Aaron for a long time, he needed to work on all the issues living with his ex left him, before being able to fully embrace a relationship with Aaron. They had great chemistry and it was lovely seeing the progression of their budding romance. 

Michael Fell's narration was very good. His voice was pleasant to listen to and especially near the end, he managed to imprint a lot of emotion to some pivotal scenes. 

Overall, this is a lovely audiobook to listen to, short and sweet with some angst to balance it out. Perfect for the upcoming holiday season! Very recommendable!
