    Sexy and Believable

    I really enjoyed this holiday story. Nick is older, about to retire from the military, while Teddy is young and cute and working a social service job. Nick has to serve as Santa, which brings them together, and the romance that develops is sexy and believable.

    4.5 stars- Comfy, cozy holiday romance

    Better Not Pout is a comfy cozy holiday romance that was the perfect way to start my November. This May-December, opposites attract romance was relatively low angst with surprisingly high heat, and an easy read that was hard to put down. As I expected, the writing was smooth and well developed with a good flow between the narrative and dialogue. The characters had sufficient depth without getting too heavy, and the plot was well-rounded with a solid resolution that left me with a smile on my face. From the outset I liked how Nick’s gruffness masked a tender, thoughtful soul, and I enjoyed watching his walls steadily come down as he fell in love with Teddy and the town of Mineral Spirits. Likewise, Teddy’s effervescent and giving spirit was contagious and simply made me happy. I loved the men’s exchanges and the romance was oh so sweet. It was lovely sort of different to have those languid moments between them drawn out. I especially loved how their opposite personalities parried back and forth, even in the bedroom, lending a fun, light-hearted vibe to their relationship. If you’re looking for a sweet love story to kick off this holiday season, I’d definitely recommend Better Not Pout. *Received eARC via Netgalley and reviewed for Alpha Book Club*

    Sweet and Sexy May-December Romance

    I am a HUGE fan of Annabeth Albert's especially her HOT military romance - Out Of Uniform Series, I felt this story was a mix of that series as well as her sweeter romance, Portland Heat Series. Nick is enlisted by his Commanding Officer to play Santa for the rec center since her husband isn't able to do it this year do to medical reasons, and of course Nick cannot say NO even though the thought of it doesn't sit well with him. Teddy is the cutest elf going, so full of holiday spirit I need him to come to my house and help get me in the mood this year. Honestly he goes above and beyond what most would do and it warmed my heart to see that everyone loved and respected him because of his giving nature. Nick and Teddy are about as opposite as you can get when it comes to the holidays, but a little time with Teddy and he can even turn a Scrooge into Santa. This was a sweet holiday romance with plenty of steamy moments that will surly get you into the spirit of things no matter which holiday you celebrate. Annabeth's books are always highly recommended by me and this one is no different, in Better Not Pout we have a Sweet and Sexy May-December Romance, Holiday Themed, with two likable Male leads. Happy Reading!!! **I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book**

    Heartwarming

    Better Not Pout by Annabeth Albert is Teddy and Nick’s story. This is a sweet May/December romance. Teddy and Nick’s paths cross when Nick is filling in as Santa as a favor for a friend. The attraction between them was apparent from the start. But Nick is retiring soon and moving to Florida plus he is a lot older than Teddy so this can only be a holiday romance. I enjoyed Nick and Teddy’s story and characters. Teddy’s character is such a caring person but is lonely. Nick’s character is lonely too but doesn’t think he deserves true happiness. Will Teddy and Nick drop their walls of comfort and take a chance on love? FYI, contains mature content. This is a M/M gay romance.

    A lovely age-gap Christmas story!

    Annabeth Albert has done it again! She's written a wonderfully touching story about two very different people managing to find their HEA in spite of their differences. Better Not Pout is a very sweet, yet sexy, holiday story with a just the right amount of conflict/angst. Nick Nowicki is being retired from the service due to downsizing. He has one month left at his duty station in the wilds of upstate New York where it's cold and snowy! He's anxious to join his friend in Florida where it's warm and there's no snow. Teddy MacNally loves Christmas and runs the town resource center that caters to those in need. He's in charge of fund raising and Nick has agreed to stand-in and play Santa because their regular Santa is recovering from a heart attack. While Nick is attracted to Teddy, he knows that it can't go anywhere. For one thing he's way too old for him and he has plans to head for Florida as soon as he finishes his last day on base. Teddy also wants Nick and convinces him that they should enjoy each other while they can. But Teddy soon realizes that he can't keep his heart from getting involved but he won't beg Nick to give up his plans and stay for him. Teddy has a great family that features heavily in Better Not Pout and in contrast, Nick is somewhat estranged from his family. These dynamics contribute to the story and provide an interesting backdrop for Nick and Teddy's budding relationship. This book has all the feels; just what I expect from an Annabeth Albert story. I laughed and I cried and I loved it to pieces. Better Not Pout is one of the best holiday stories I've read this year. A review copy was provided by the publisher via NetGalley but this did not influence my opinion or rating of the book. ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***
