SWEET TOOTH by HELEN JULIET
Getting lost in the woods was never this fun
When Hans Jager and his sister Greta have to return home for the holidays, the last thing he expects is to run into his childhood best friend, Chester Wild. Even more surprising is when Chester pretends to be Hans’s boyfriend to protect Hans from his wicked step-mother’s wrath. Seeing Chester again makes Hans realise that he might feel more than just friendship, but can he risking spoiling what they already have?
Chester has always loved his best friend. But Hans is straight, right? When they find themselves stranded in the woods, everything changes, but for how long? A dark family secret could undo their magical reunion, and Hans is feeling more lost than ever. Could Chester be enough to guide him back to true love?
Sweet Tooth is a steamy, standalone MM romance novel featuring a scrumptious sweet shop, slow dancing to Elton John, an explosive family dinner, a loyal puppy, a very naughty use for candy canes, and a guaranteed HEA with absolutely no cliffhanger.
Sweet Tooth, as the name might tell you, was an undeniably sweet holiday story that had a creative use for candy canes, chocolate truffles and gummy bears. It was super unsanitary and in the real world someone is probably going to require a doctors visit but in story land—more please, sir!
I really liked Chester and Hans as characters. The two best friends had a decade apart but fell together like no time had passed. Almost immediately, they were up to their old shenanigans. It was no surprise when they confessed their love and got together. The real surprise I won't spoil. About halfway through I guessed the twist but it was written so well and utterly satisfying.
On a side note, I really liked Hans twin sister. She was so sassy and I love me sassy girls.
