All serious knitters know about the boyfriend sweater curse: knit a sweater for a boyfriend, and he’ll break up with you soon after. Gabriel Sutton isn’t the superstitious type, but after the curse strikes three times, he isn’t taking anymore chances. His new boyfriend, Noel Rivera, will have to be content with store bought gifts.

Yet as their relationship develops, Gabriel begins to believe Noel might be the perfect man for him. Noel doesn’t make fun of Gabriel’s holiday traditions and wants to create new traditions of their own. As Christmas draws closer, however, Gabriel sees signs of Noel pulling away, and he worries this relationship will be as big a mistake as the others. Are Noel’s late nights and secretive phone calls a sign he’s cheating? Or will the magic of Christmas bring Gabriel the love he’s been searching for all along?

With the holiday nearly upon us, its safe to say that I have read more than a few tales of the season over the past thirty days or so. Some might find themselves becoming even more critical when it comes to reviewing or what they are expecting well I am no more critical now than I was at Thanksgiving when I really started with this years holiday reading. I like to think I keep an open mind all the way through and I was intrigued to read The Boyfriend Sweater Curse by Ari McKay. I mean lets be honest, knitting is not a commonplace hobby for the younger males today so Gabriel's love of all things yarn really piqued my interest before even beginning. And who doesn't love the element of a good curse? Despite the dreaded sweater curse that Gabriel has potentially fallen victim to, this holiday tale is a delight. Did the ending surprise me? No but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy the journey that Gabriel and Noel took getting there. Simply put: The Boyfriend Sweater Curse is a true gem that will warm your heart and make you smile.

Many of us have been Gabriel, worrying that we have been cursed, jinxed, or just plain undeserving of love. Watching him find true happiness was heartwarming and satisfying. And now I want hot cocoa.
