Sweet and touching short story. Very hot too :) I'd love to read a longer novel/continuation about these characters!

This review can be found at Brief Encounters Reviews.

The blurb on this one sums it up pretty well. Mitchell is feeling a bit down this Christmas. He hasn’t dated since his ex Jamal gave him the “it’s not you, it’s me” speech three years ago. He’s pretty sure he’s destined to be alone, and then Romy makes a sudden appearance seeking help.

More like 3.5 stars; I really enjoy the hotness of the two getting together. But I guess I'm used to reading other J.M. Snyder's stories where there is something build up first before jumping for the sex. BUT, this story is still good read. Love the "messages" that Mitchell sent to Dear Santa in his mind.

Of the two short stories I've ready by Snyder, I think I prefer this one because it creates a better sense of interaction between the characters. Of the three pieces I've read by Snyder, this would fall second, but that could be my preference for character development and plot, which the short stories don't really have much of.
