Kit Allen is an overweight thirty year-old accountant who still lives with his mother and despite being gay, still a virgin. His life changes with the arrival of his gorgeous new office assistant, Jesse, who’s everything he ever wanted in a man. Feeling unworthy and unattractive but desperate to get a life, Kit purchases a series of self-help DVD’s featuring fitness guru Danny Fit and starts on a rigorous exercise routine.

Jesse’s a sweet, kind and loving man whose life has been far from perfect but when he begins working for Kit, he starts to hope for a little happiness for the first time in years. While Kit is trying to get in shape for Jesse, Jesse’s working his own campaign on his clueless boss, the kind and funny man he wants to hold in his arms. All he has to do is convince the man he loves they are meant to be together and his world will be perfect.

Christmas with Danny Fit is a sweet and fun novelette with a likable couple and a quirky, original premise that drew me into the story immediately. I love Kit. He’s such a true-to-life character and one that’s too often overlooked in romance novels.

The story is well written, the plot smooth flowing, the characters interesting and unique, and the dialogue often witty and humorous. And when the men finally have sex, it’s hot…hot…hot. There aren’t many supporting characters but those present add their own distinctive slant to the plot. I will admit that there aren’t a lot of twists and turns to this story. It’s a cute afternoon read, without a lot of angst, but that’s okay because it’s so easy to identify with Kit and Jesse. Read and enjoy this little Christmas gem.
