The Proof is in the Pudding am Book Original Blog Post: Review Request: The Proof is in the Pudding by Nic StarrReview by: multitaskingmommaMy Rating: 4 of 4 Stars(Based on Short&Light Read Category)'Tis the season to be merry and puddings, fruit cakes, gingerbread cookies and eggnogs are in the list of Must Have things. In Nic Starr's Christmas story, we have front and center: the pudding.The pudding is one of the most exhaustive dratted things I had the misfortune of thinking I could actually accomplish without hurting myself. One, the sheer amount of fruit preserves and whatnots that have to get in there did wonders for my wrists and shoulders (Note: I could not move for two frikkin days!). Then there is the act of mixing the thing together. Of course, there is also the muslin that needs to wrap it up and the carefully, carefully duck out of the way pot filled with boiling water. It has to be at the right temperature before loading the thing in. Taking it out, will take a whole new segment to write about. That I managed to escape unscathed was a miracle by itself.Unfortunately, Steve was not as lucky as I when it came to the pudding. His heart, though, heheheheeeeee, tingles down the spine, he gets his Christmas wish of a man in Corey and more.I love these little short Christmas stories coming out these days. This is the first of what I consider as the bake-a-Christmas-cake books that landed in my tablet. (Note: I got rid of the dratted Kindle) This is a story that makes the cook in you sit at the edge of your seat. Is Steve doing the right process, is he going to drop it? As a romance, this is breezy but as an adventure in the kitchen and within the heart, oh yes, it's a Nic Starr all right!. Steve never expected making a Christmas pudding would bring him the man of his dreams.Steve Hayes is away with a group of friends who are spending the Christmas break together He s determined to put his two timing ex boyfriend in the past, and enjoy his week away Steve is happily surprised to find that Corey Oh, the guy he s been admiring from afar, has been invited alonSteve never expected making a Christmas pudding would bring him the man of his dreams.Steve Hayes is away with a group of friends who are spending the Christmas break together He s determined to put his two timing ex boyfriend in the past, and enjoy his week away Steve is happily surprised to find that Corey Oh, the guy he s been admiring from afar, has been invited along too But Steve knows there s no way someone as wonderful as Corey, who could have any man he wanted, would be interested in him.However, thanks to a misadventure with a Christmas pudding, Steve will find that dreams can come true.. Popular Kindle The Proof is in the Pudding An Australian Christmas is at the center of this cute story about six friends celebrating together somewhere in the mountains.

A few Christmas traditions and one very resistant Christmas pudding later, they spend more time together than either had expected and suddenly new options appear on the horizon.Steve is the one in charge of making the Christmas pudding this year, and he follows his mother’s recipe as closely as he can. Unexpectedly Corey – a man Steve has so far only admired from afar - joins him to help, and they figure out they like spending time together. But when Steve is almost done, an accident causes an injury that means he has to rest, and he ends up spending a lot more time with Corey. Talking isn’t all they do, and by the time the pudding is served, both of them are hoping for more.If you like sweet Christmas celebrations, if you want to find out more about two men who are both in need of some monogamous loving, and if you’re looking for a fun read with a touch of heat, then you will probably like this short story.NOTE: This book was provided by MLR Press for the purpose of a review on Rainbow Book Reviews.

  5. What I liked most about this story was the background of Steve making the Christmas pudding I admit, I ve read of the pudding many times in holiday stories but I have never actually seen one It was so interesting to see the complicated process that goes into it and believe me, it was nothing like I thought Steve had a partner last Christmas, one he took to meet his parents Richard was it, or so Steve thought, until it turns out Richard is a cheating jerk They have spent Christmas with friends an [...]


  6. A nice and enjoyable friends to lovers romance that involves Christmas pudding or accurately a Christmas pudding fiasco I thought the moments where Corey took care of Steve was sweet Even if Steve and Corey s friendship happened before the story started, I believed that they were good friends I also liked that this was quite a slow burn, even if the story was short.

  10. The Proof is in the Pudding is a delightful short story about a healing heart, romance, friendship, and good eats on Christmas I appreciated the author s ability to write an ensemble cast well, giving life to several characters with only a few words of description, and letting their dialogue express their personalities What I appreciated the most, however, as a gay, Asian male reader of MM gay romance is her characterization of the love interest who s Asian Australian he felt real, and at no poi [...]

  12. 3.0 StarsA sweet, romantic read.ough I do wish there had been than just lip service paid to the Korean MC s heritage with the stereotypical racial requisite over achieving siblings and restaurant owning parents.Two things though 1 Until I m confronted with it book, TV I tend to forget that at least half of the world is in Summer when Christmas rolls around and that Northern centrism kind of embarrasses me when I think of all the holiday paraphernalia that automatically comes with snow, snowflak [...]
