This is a story about overwhelming passion too long delayed. Misunderstandings and circumstances may have held Jake and Ben apart so far, and Jake almost messes it up again, but, once these two get going, there is no stopping them.

Jake is a conflicted guy. On the one hand he has wanted the six years older Ben for years, and all he has to go on is the one kiss they shared before he left for college. On the other hand his ex-boyfriend has deeply hurt him and Jake is now afraid to recommit. Especia

A great little tale of missed possibilities that come around again but is either Jake or Ben in a similar state of mind to explore the opportunity? The novella was a little on the short side but it was still a very enjoyable read and a great addition to my holiday library, I can certainly see myself reading this again next year.

wonderful sweet and sexy Christmas themed story
Could have read a lot more of these two guys

Ben is like wow that is at least how he feels and comes over I liked that :)
Jake seems to be insecure and down in the beginning but Seeing Ben brings back long lost feelings ( not that they were lost to begin with) and makes him see that there really could be more instored for both / either of them.

The way they fuse together is like as if it is meant to be and i liked that a lot a natural recandeling , im

The plot of this story just didn't feel good. Jake came home for Christmas with broken heart, sad and depressed. The cause was his last ex-boyfriend who cheated on him for many months. By coming home Ben comes face to face with his childhood crush Ben. And all his repressed emotions come alive once again.
This short story had interesting plot, but everything felt simply to rushed and undeveloped. With a bit better developed plot this could be better. And this sex scene on the couch, was really w

This is a delightfully sweet story about Jake, who has had a crush on older, cooler Ben since high school. They shared one great kiss five years prior, before Ben moved away to pursue his career. After experiencing a bad break up, Jake returns home from college to find himself conveniently placed in situations with Ben, set up by his family and friends. There is a misunderstanding that causes a brief rift, but Jake and Ben eventually talk things out and look forward to their future.

Ben and jake had one kiss years ago jake now returned back home to find out ben is the new owner of the bakery that they shared their kiss. But jake is still broken up by his ex and he thinks its too soon to get back into a relationship again. But all he could think of is Ben and that one kiss and wants more.This was a very Christmasy and hot story.
Jewel
I enjoyed this short story. I'm a sucker for the 'finding your first love again' theme. However, the conflict felt a bit contrived. Jake had broken up with his previous boyfriend months before and apparently made no progress on moving on from the experience. Thankfully he comes to his senses before it's too late.
Rachel
A sweet story, but I find it hard to believe that they hadn't seen each other in 5 years and were still in love with each other the moment they saw each other again. Still, good writing and I really liked Jake's family.

Ok, I'm a sucker for unrequited love. So this one had me from the first pages. But the writing is also really strong, beautiful, and easy to read. A great Christmas story about coming home.

I have problems with stories that involve long absences, where the MC's act as if there's been none once they get back together again.
