His family pushes them to reconnect as Ben was like a son to them, and the spark is still there, however Jake is nervous about jumping into another relationship. I liked this, although I was a bit annoyed with Ben who was quick to criticize Jake because he did...more

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...more

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...more

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.

I'm having a hard time coming up with reviews for these short holiday stories.... This one was good, had a nice plot, good characters, a bit of drama, and some nice sex. It was very enjoyable!
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.
Stacey
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.
Katy Beth Mckee
Jake and Ben share one special kiss and that was it for years. Jake has to let go of the hurt caused by another if he can be ready to recapture and embrace his true love.
OkayKim
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.
Sam
Sweet, short lightweight Christmas story. Bakery owner Ben gets together with the guy he knew 5 years before.
Tame
Short, sweet read :) I'm not a fan of chocolate, but boy, oh boy, am I a believer now!
