A Swants Soiree -by- EJ Russell

A Swants Soiree

by E.J. Russell

The Blurb:

Introverted software engineer Brent Levine struggles with the life part of work-life balance, but to hold on to his new job, he’ll have to embrace his employer’s dreaded “staff enrichment” events. This year’s annual ugly holiday sweater party will strain his ambition to remain inconspicuous: everyone has to wear sweaters converted into pants—aka “swants.”

Brent’s an ace at coding, but when it comes to handcrafts, he’s definitely at the far left end of the bell curve. Luckily he encounters seriously cute theater costumer Jonathan at the Goodwill Outlet. Jonathan offers Brent both an acceptably ugly sweater and his expertise in swants conversion. Attraction sparks on Brent’s side, but can Jonathan be interested in a guy like him?

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2019 Advent Calendar “Homemade for the Holidays.”
Cover Artist: Brooke Albrecht

A Swants Soiree..EJ Russell,..5*****Stars

Jonathan & Brent

Nothing says meet-cute like scrounging for ugly sweaters, at Goodwill and meeting Mister Adorable who saves your backside… Literally and figuratively!

(I think the author may be obsessed with marine life! As in fish, not the men! Well, perhaps the men too, but I digress. Hahaha… Lots of references to sharks, piranha, and something about fishy legs I think? **giggle… I love it!) And all the geek banter is so smart and funny I may now have a teensy crush on this (new to me) author. **sigh…

When a coding geek (Brent) meets a theater geek (Jonathan) and the two connect over a turning an ugly Crimbo sweater into a pair of wearable pants, fashionably called, Swants you know the only outcome can be an Adorkable one.

I giggled, chuckled, and silently applauded all the creative references to Star Wars & Star Trek. Loved the silly and clever banter between characters. I adored Riki, Brent’s co-worker, and would bet money she is a secret super hero. She just has THAT sassy-cool vibe.

This was my first EJ Russell, but I am heading to fill my TBR as soon as I finish this!

Read it, people! Embrace the funny that is, “Sixty-nine Santa!”

**I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.⛄
