I really enjoyed this short story Photobucket

The story


Jonah finds wedding rings in his boyfriend's desk and panics, thinking Evan will propose. He's not sure if he wants to make a permanant commitment, and there are so many things he hasn't tried yet, and doesn't know how to approach the subject with Evan.
Evan is worried about him, seeing him distancing himself more and more, and doesn't know the reason for it... Until he finds a list...
Jonah made a list of a

2.5 stars. I didn't really connect with the characters in this one. Seemed to me they had a lot bigger relationship problems than wanting a bit of kinky sex.

Jonah and Evan have been together for a number of years and, when Jonah is rummaging through Evan’s desk to find some sellotape, he finds two tacky wedding rings. Paranoid that Evan is about to propose over New Years Jonah goes into a panic about what he hasn't managed to experience sexually before he settles down – namely bit of kink He makes a bucket list which Evan accidentally finds. As they spend Christmas with Evan’s family, Evan attempts to coax Jonah to talk to him without giving away th ...more

Another author then I'm developing a serious case of the 'likes' for, K.A. Mitchell. Her characters are multifaceted, flawed and most importantly realistic. Evan and Jonah make a great couple (they have some issues with communication but Evan works it out, most deliciously ;P)

Loved them as a couple.

Loved the couple events they performed in the bedroom...especially that last one!!

Got me excited!

1.5 stars. Unfortunately I didn't enjoy this book. I like Evan, I didn't like Jonah and I didn't see the chemistry between the characters. The lack of communication felt forced in the story. I didn't buy their Dom and Sub relationship and the fact that seemed to have solved their problems.
Christina

Meh, not a good Mitchell.

The characters were detached and the entire story had an almost clinical feel to it. Both characters were likable but unfortunately the lack of communication seemed unnatural and forced. As far as the BDSM aspects go, I believed Jonah's desire to delve into the lifestyle, but Evan came off as robotic and unfeeling. I didn't feel much of a connection between them. The BDSM was mild and the sex was written good but the relationship and the characters were not developed en

An enjoyable, believable look at a couple having a hard time expressing their desires to each other. Jonah and Evan have been together for two years when Jonah discovers a set of hidden wedding rings. The thought of being tied to vanilla sex with one person for the rest of his life sends him into a panic about all the things he's been curious about and never tried, particularly being submissive. But it turns out there's something Evan hasn't been telling him as well.

Confusion, doubt, mixed mess

Man, that was hottt. Lots of smexin' and a super cute couple. There was a plot, too! And even though that plot pretty much revolved around the Big Misunderstanding, I enjoyed this book a lot. BDSM-lite, so don't be afraid to check this one out if you're curious. Christmas in March, whee!

I appear to me in the minority, but I really liked this story. Being inside Jonah’s head and seeing his inner struggle for what he wants and needs just spoke to me. I can relate to his not knowing. Not knowing if he was ready to settle for one person for life, not knowing if he was willing to give up certain aspects of his “fantasy” world, not knowing if Evan would understand his kinks and his desire to try new things. Evan could have made things a little easier on Jonah, in my opinion. He was f ...more
Tami (synchro from BL)
A hot little christmas romance novel. I liked that the MCs were in a relationship and this novella showed some development in their relationship. They have been together for two years and are considerably happy when the story starts. Wenn Jonah thinks that he is going to get a proposal, he starts thinking about what he might miss (sexually) if he committs fully. Not the most romantic first thought when confronted with rings, but very human. Jonah wants some BDSM in his life and luckily his guy i ...more

3.5 stars for me on this one. To me, this was a story about realizing what you want or need in your relationship and knowing how and then being able to actually ask your partner for it. There was a major communication breakdown going on here which could have solved a lot. I enjoyed Jonah questioning himself and being unsure of what he wanted, even though he could have gone about things a little differently. Same goes for Evan. I love how it ended with Evan's birthday gift for Jonah in NY, watchi ...more

This didn't work so well for me and I had real doubts about their future as a couple. Considering these guys had been together a couple of years, it bothered me that (view spoiler). Could still have had the d/s desire/struggle in a communication misunderstanding but without the (view spoiler). I liked once Jonah started talking that they got past the miscommunication and started exploring.
Shannon
This was a truly hot short story about Jonah who wants to try the BDSM lifestyle but is too scared to tell his boyfriend Evan and Evan who used to be an active Dom but never told Jonah. Evan finds a list Jonah made about it and the story goes from there. Lots of good smexing in this one all wrapped up with a nice love story. Yum!
DayDreamer
3.5 stars. Maybe.

It was hot, can't say it wasn't, but the kinky stuff was not enough.

Also talking. How hard can it be?

So. Good, but not life-changing. I'm not sorry I read it. Yet I don't crave more, I don't feel like going back to it.

I bought this at Christmas and then it got swallowed up by my TBR pile so I forgot about it. I was flipping through the books on my Sony reader and saw this. Having just read a long book containing a sweet romance with lots of fade to black, I was in the mood for something relatively short and sexy and this seemed to fit the bill completely.

Jonah is looking in his lover's desk drawer for sellotape when he discovers a pair of wedding rings. This sends him into a panic because, although he loves E

My Review:
Rating: B
I liked Jonah and Evan a lot. I liked them as characters and overall, I liked them as a couple. What I didn't get about the story was the shock over a possible marriage proposal after two years together, 14 months of that living together. To me, that seems like a pretty committed relationship, so I had a hard time following Jonah's panic. I think the story would have worked for me better if they had only been together for six months or maybe just a tiny bit longer. Then I coul

This is a sweet story about a couple who find they are even better suited than they thought. Jonah and Evan have been together for two years and have a strong relationship. Then, one day, as he’s packing their stuff for a visit to Evan’s family for Christmas, Jonah finds a set of wedding bands in Evan’s desk. Jonah’s seriously thrown. Jonah loves Evan but he’s not sure he’s ready to settle down. For starters, there’s so much he hasn’t tried h

Three and a half stars. My intro to K.A. Mitchell, and a vast improvement over most of the D/s stuff I've had the misfortune to read. I was going to give up on it, because I kept choosing really awful stuff with the world's worst dialog.

"Yes, sir," over and over with no internal dialog to enliven or explain it! Gah! This is much better written, with some silly but palatable plot twists and misunderstandings. I especially appreciated how uncertain the novice sub, Jonah, was in this story. I could

Smexy boys are smexy. Rowr.
Anke
Yes, I really liked it. Although somewhere in the middle it was as if I read fragments and not a progressing story and I really couldn't follow Jonah's thinking regarding the M2M related stuff, at some point the story was pulled back together and I really liked their coming to grips with both their inner wishes:)
Josephine Myles
I can see that other readers have had major problems with this story, but I'd urge people not to be put off. To me, Jonah's wibbles about their relationship and commitment were perfectly believable and fit with his character. The sex is hot and the dialogue snappy, lifting it a cut above much m/m BDSM out there.

Jonah and Evan have been together for two years and have a pretty good relationship but when Jonah accidentally stumbles across a pair of wedding rings in Evan's desk he panics. He loves Evan but the thought of getting married just makes him think of all the things that he'll never get to try if they tie the knot. Jonah creates a wish list containing all of his darkest desires but worries that Evan wouldn't be interested in helping him fulfil them. Evan has noticed how distant Jonah has become b ...more

That's a very weak 3 stars, mind.

When it comes to K.A. Mitchell books, I always have a checklist. Nine times out of ten, her stories always have these four constants: an asshole MC, angst like only her and Amy Lane can dish out, sex scenes high in quality and quantity, and a pretty satisfying HEA where the asshole grovels and proves he's worth the fucking angst.

Well, the first three were a go. Jonah with his overreaction and dishonesty and general douchebaggery covered the first on the checklist

This one is a male on male holiday erotica. Jonah and Evan are pretty different or so each one thinks. Jonah gets scared when he thinks a set of wedding rings he finds are for him and Evan. That gets him thinking about what he might be missing out on if he and Evan decide to stay together forever. He makes a wish list of sorts about sexual things he might want to try. Evan mistakenly finds it and decides to try at making some of them come through. When Jonah doesn't know is that Evan can easily ...more

While I enjoyed the writing style, I found the bdsm elements didn't work. It felt forced, too technical and lacking feeling. The authors used spanking before, in Collision Course, to great effect and it worked so well within the dynamic of the relationship. This book however failed on that account. Not my favourite from this author.

Didn't like. Jonah was fckin dumb. He didn't deserve Evan.

Hmmmmm... Holidays and BDSM? What more could you ask for?
Very enjoyable - recommended!

The whole book was based on the "We're guys, we don't talk about stuff." trope.

K.A. Mitchell discovered the magic of writing at an early age when she learned that a carefully crayoned note of apology sent to the kitchen in a toy truck would earn her a reprieve from banishment to her room. Her career as a spin-control artist was cut short when her family moved to a two-story house, and her trucks would not roll safely down the stairs. Around the same time, she decided that Ch ...more
