AUTHOR: Ava Hayden
PUBLISHER: Dreamspinner Press
LENGTH: 48 Pages
RELEASE DATE: December 1, 2017
Milo is too nice to say no when the desperate call goes out for more staff to work Boxing Day at Eden Consumer Electronics. It’s just until they sell the door-crasher specials, but it means he can’t see his billionaire boyfriend Lance until later that day.
Lance spends December 25 jetting back from a business trip, eager to see Milo. He calls as soon as his flight lands Boxing Day morning, only to find out that seven hundred and thirty televisions are cock-blocking him.
What’s the point of being a billionaire if you can’t spend your way around obstacles? Milo doesn’t want Lance solving his problems with cash, but he’ll never find out because Lance’s efficient personal assistant, William, is on the case. Unfortunately, even billionaires are subject to the law of unintended consequences—and these aren’t the kind Lance can buy his way out of.
Will Lance and Milo have their Boxing Day date? Or have Lance’s pushy billionaire ways finally gone too far?
This novella is part of the DSP 2017 Christmas Advent calendar. This is one of many stories included in this anthology. I chose this story because I’m poor and I like reading about billionaires. This was a cute little story. Milo’s character was a little on the quirky side and I kind of liked that. Lance’s character is pretty much what you can expect from a billionaire: arrogant and a bit pushy, used to getting what he wants when he wants it. This storyline has been done many times before but this one was not bad at all. The story started off a tad slow but picked up soon enough.
Although nicely done, it did feel like it was a part of a larger story. I felt like there were pieces of the story that I was missing…like I was reading the the middle of part of a story or coming in on the tail end of a conversation. This was the reason why I couldn’t fully connect with the characters.
All in all, the story was nice. The editing could’ve been a bit stronger to make the story and characters more cohesive and flow a bit better but overall, it wasn’t bad.
