SERIES: 2017 Advent Calendar: Stocking Stuffers
AUTHOR: A.D. Ellis
PUBLISHER: Dreamspinner Press
LENGTH: 34 Pages
RELEASE DATE: December 1, 2017
Snowed in together in their college dorm, two men share a quick connection that creates enough heat to spar with the blizzard outside.
Rory Blackwell plans to rejuvenate his mind and repair his battered heart after his world is shaken by an unexpected breakup. James Austin’s freshman-year plans of improving his social life crashed and burned, leaving him feeling as alone and outcast as he did back home.
One man is hurting while the other is eager to provide comfort. One is a virgin, the other experienced with other men. Both are looking forward to Winter Break, but can they take full advantage of their situation—or will the passion ignited between them fizzle out with the storm?
This was a really short and sweet holiday story about two college kids, one sort of getting over a breakup but looking to recharge by spending the holiday break by himself on campus, and another who wants nothing more than to be home with his family. Unfortunately, or fortunately as the case turns out, a big snowstorm strands James on campus with Rory.
As circumstances force them to get better acquainted, their attraction grows and they decide to make the best of things. James was super sweet, his only really issues were inexperience and insecurity. He hasn’t had the best time making friends, and the hoping to find more acceptance at school hasn’t panned out like he had hoped. Rory was perfect for him and just the right guy to show him how good things can be, especially once James realized Rory wasn’t just looking for a quick encounter.
This was my first experience with this author, and I really enjoyed it. Sweet and fluffy isn’t normally my cuppa, but I’m glad I gave this a shot. I definitely recommend giving it a go if you like seeing young guys exploring and finding love in the process.
