A VVivacious Review: Reconnecting Christmas (Seeing Me #3) by Megan Slayer

Rating – 2.5 Stars out of 5
reconnecting-christmas-by-megan-slayerOliver and Bert have been in a relationship for the past two years but despite having been together for that long, there relationship is still simmering in uncertainty.
This Christmas all Oliver wants is for Bert to come home and Bert does but he ends up bringing a plus one with him. Will this spell the end of Oliver and Bert or will this force these two to examine the cracks in their relationship? Eventually, what will this Christmas bring Oliver & Bert?
This story is a nice fun holiday read. I liked the way the story was written, it flows and everything was nicely executed. The story moves at a fast pace which helps because the characters often say something and do something else.
This story doesn’t read like an established couple romance Oliver and Bert don’t feel like they have been together for two years and they still have a lot of issues to deal with so when things finally do get sorted out, I got the feeling that they had fallen in love for the first time. The characters aren’t that well developed, while their situation felt genuine, I really couldn’t figure out what made the tick.
Things happen very quickly, everything gets solved in a few days. Basically the whole story is like a flash in the pan. Things happen but no matter the magnitude of the upset things settle down quickly and quite uneventfully. Also towards the end I felt like Bert and Oliver were moving a bit too fast especially concerning how nascent their relationship felt, I mean these two were just figuring out how to be partners in their relationship with each other after having been in said relationship for two years.
What worked in spades for this story was that Oliver and Bert had great chemistry and great friends, actually friend that being Kenley. His advice was the most spot-on and helped get things on track.
Cover art is typical of the holiday stories.
