Not a Christmas story but a New Year one.

I loved the drama and the anguish in this one. The talking scenes were pretty emotional. But as it seems with most shorts this was padded out with about 3 sex scenes that I found easy to skip.
3.5 stars
Jimmy and Alex has been in relationship for 4 months; and it's filled with laughter and lovely kisses. But Jimmy's fear (about what people will think of them, especially his family) and Alex's frustration about Jimmy's reluctance to take their relationship one step further results in a stormy break-up. Unfortunately, Jimmy cannot forget Alex easily, and there's the meddling from Alex's older sister ... and now, on New Year's Eve, they are thrown together again. Can Jimmy forgives Alex a

I think this is a wonderful final story for the series of 2010 Advent Calendar books. Jimmy and Adam both have demons to overcome before they can truly be together. Jimmy is too scared to take the final step and Adam is too impulsive when he drinks. Once they admit this and start fighting together instead of against each other there isn't much they can't do.

The First is a beautiful story about a first time. The main characters are two fairly young guys who are for the first time in love and never had gay sex before. Especially Jimmy, from whose point of view we're hearing their story (in third person), is scared for their first time – for getting more intimate than just sharing hot kisses. His boyfriend Adam gets frustrated of waiting (for four months now) and gets drunk at a Christmas party, which causes a fight between the boyfriends, and worse ...more
I hate cheaters so really expected to hate Adam, even if his cheat didnt go past a witnessed by his boyfriend kiss, but I didn't. They are so young, with fear, the past and the unknown making things difficult. They are sweet together though, and kudos to Maura for setting it up.
more 2,5 stars. I just couldn't connect with the MC's
Really well written holiday story about Jimmy and Adam. Adam has gotten drunk and kissed another guy and Jimmy is heartbroken and refuses to talk tot him. Meddling sister Maura tries to get them back together. Yea for meddling sisters!
Very good short m/m romance about two guys in college who broke up because one caught the other kissing someone else while very drunk at a party.
sweet and hot.

Rachel West lives in the Virginia mountains, where she dotes on her loving partner and their two cats and works in a job that is much less exciting than writing about boys in love. When not wandering around in her characters' world, she loves to hike, play silly board games, and read everything she can get her hands on.
