Quiet, strait-laced David Appleton thinks he’s going to have a problem at work. A new co-worker discovered his secret in the locker room. Unable to confront someone, David let him walk away. Now he worries everyone will know his deepest held secret. A secret hidden under his signature vest, tie, and trousers.
Since walking in on his co-worker, CJ O’Connell tries to get a moment to speak with the shy David, but nothing works. His last hope—the Secret Santa Gift Exchange party. Perhaps a special gift can peel away the secrets.
I thought this was a very good short story. It wasn’t a full story but it really set things up well for these men in the future. There was a bit of history and a lot of dialogue. Because of the format of the story, it was mostly telling rather than showing, but there was just enough emotion that I felt the connection between these men.
I am invested in this story. I do hope there will be a sequel because I want to see if they are compatible and I really want to see if the asshole gets his due.
This short introduction fit well into the “Holiday to Remember” theme and promises so much more for the future. Pick this one up if you are so inclined. It is a good, quick read.
