We’ve all had those stupid pop-up ads on the computer show up, and for Jack it’s just one more annoyance, as his family is stranded due to weather and his sister-in-law going into early labour with no way for him to get to them or vice-versa for Christmas. As he sits trying to stop the damn flurry of pop-ups he starts thinking about his friend Henry who always fixes his PC, and their friends with benefits status. He likes it, he likes Henry, he has fun with him, they sleep over, the sex is great ...more

This is an unusual story - very funny, with some nice tension and the twist at the end (even though expected by then) was brilliant. Jack is delightfully unaware of the realities of life, spending most of his time buried in work. Thank God for Henry, his neighbor, who keeps rescuing him. The ending made me smile in a mix of delight and happiness. A very nice holiday read!

Sweet. It was nice/okay/goodish.

A little too synthetic for me though.

Very good short m/m holiday romance about a workaholic who's suddenly left without anywhere to go for Christmas.

What a clever concept to use pop ups to get jack to where he needed to be. This was, for me, the perfect warm fuzzy short I've been wanting to read. #happy.

Sometimes you need to stop and smell the roses. Or should I say watch the snow fall? Or stop and throw snow balls? Sometimes you need to realize that work isn't everything.

What a fun short story! Sometimes what we really need is right in front of us all along :) Wouldn't mind reading more about these guys someday. Also finding out about that baby ;)

A very sweet romantic cute short story involving a guy whose life revolves around his work and that special someone who changes all that in a very unique fun way.

Yet another guy-doesn't-see-what's-in-front-of-him story. Pretty much a waste of time, although the pop-up ads were a cute idea.

A quick read, but it always puts a smile on my face.
