I love this what I assume is an editing miss:
"Especially if Gabriel had done the typical straight thing and been nervous all the time that Nick would come on him."

I think it should be the straight guy is worried the gay guy will come onto him. Least I hope nick is not walking around coming on straight guys.

I liked the characters...what's not to like? That was part of the problem: no conflict. Why did they suddenly love each other now? The reader didn't get to see any of the buildup to where they are now, other than the flashbacks (and there was one flashback inside another...very confusing, lol). I think this writer has potential, but more plot development and just...more would go a long way. Also the deed thing was kind of odd and out of place and pushed my disbelief button.

This is a cute story about Nick, who has fallen in love with the man he took into his home three years ago when fire destroyed Gabe’s home. They have become great friends and, like so often, do not want to do anything to endanger that.

Nick’s initial disappointment about not being able to spend Christmas with Gabe due to some last minute changes to his friend’s plans almost pushes him into depression. His realization that he loves Gabe as more than a friend is fairly recent and he has no idea wha

This short story was sweet and romantic as hell, but simple to short, and just a description of one perfect Christmas evening was to short to say, I love it.

Friends to lovers and it's very sweet but it's too short to get to know th e characters much,mthough what we get of them is lovely.

This would have been great as a backstory or set up to a longer book, but on its own it's just a very short encounter.

Three years ago nick and Gabriel meet after nick house was on fire. Since then they been living together as friends. They both been in-love with each other and either said anything. But this xmas is going to be different and confess.
This was short and sweet...more emphasis on the short than anything else. No real conflict, just a quick read.
