I liked that Jamie and Seb have that "can't say anything without fighting", because it seemed real. Two people who don't acknowledge what is right in front of them. Seb's admission that he argued because he wanted Jamie to notice him seemed just the kind of thing a person in love would say.
Good short holiday m/m romance about two guys who are always fighting, including over the mysterious Secret Santa presents they received.

Seb and Jamie are friends. Opposite characters and opposite life style. But still friends. They argue, they fight, they dance around each other never admitting there is more between them than only friendship.

Then on Christmas Eve they have the ultimate fight, on a very ridicolous argument, and the sparks between them flare and it's no more possible to deny that, like the old motto, Opposites Attract.

A very short story, less then 30 pages, but I think pretty true: sometime to find the true love y

Cute story about two bickering friends who find hot and sweet solution for their constant conflict with a little help of secret Santa. The beginning of the story was over the top, kind of tiresome, but it got much better towards the end - once the guys start solving their "problem". ~_^

This humourous and yet touching story has two themes rolled into one. You have opposites attract, and friends to lovers. Seb and Jamie have been friends for years, they know they can call on the other if they are drunk and can’t get home or need help, but they also fight like cats and dogs about everything and nothing. Seb is a meat eater, Jamie is an avowed vegetarian. Seb is a bit of a manwhore, Jamie hasn’t had a date in a long time. Seb is
If you're a vegetarian, would you be happy to get a meat-lover cooking book? Likewise, if you're a meat-lover, would you like to receive a vegetarian cooking book? That's what happen to Seb and Jamie, close friends who often argue with each other, sometimes merely to contradict the other. A secret Santa gave them the unexpected Christmas presents that prompt them to accuse the other of committing a prank.

I enjoyed reading this story. Their relationship as friends is rather intense, but they do c
POV jumps in every single paragraph!
This is a cute little story about two friends cooking together on Christmas Eve. These two have spent months -- years? not really clear -- arguing and bickering with each other, like two little kids who pull each other's hair instead of admitting they are attracted to each other. But on this evening their other friends have conspired to get these two together alone with cookbooks, and chemistry happens.

There's not much story here, just sexual tension bubbling over like one of their pots on the
This is a lovely short story sort of a frenemies type of vibe. Seb and Jamie each get a special "secret Santa" gift that could not be more inappropriate and they each blame the other. Then they decide to prepare a dinner for their friends and things get a little hot in the kitche ;)
Seb and jamie friends but also bicker about anything and everything oneday in the kitchen they both get a mystery gift. which brings these two together and all fight once and for all and it the end they hav no idea what they eva argued about.

Secret Santa plays matchmaker with the help of cranberries.
Stop talking,guys - you`re better off with getting down to action...
Short, sweet and savory….perfect for the holidays. I would love to see more of these boys cooking in the kitchen and anywhere else!
Enjoyable fun holiday read. I liked the guys' chemistry and banter back and forth with each other.
Her Christmas shorts all seems to resemble each other.
