Neighbors (Celebrate! - 2014 Advent Calendar)
More lists with this book...
It reminded me a bit of How the Other Half Lives. Neighbors who are attracted to each other but are too shy and intimidated to introduce themselves. All of the incorrect assumptions about each other were a tiny bit frustration, but I was still charmed.
Warning: Don't read this story if meddling friends irritates you. These guys are practically forced together by their friends. Sometimes that can irritate me, but I didn't mind it much here.

Poor Eric is shy. He watches life unfold from afar... even when he is in lust with his neighbor, Crooked Smile. No one like that would ever give dorky ol' him a second glance. Especially when he can't even utter a single word in the presence of said neighbor. Even more so because said neighbor has an exotic and hot boyfriend.

At Christmas, they are forced together with the help of their friends and they realize they both had been crushing on the other all along.
Very sweet, light holiday story. My only wish is that we’d gotten to see them together – if only for a little bit.

Both neighbors are a little stalker like. Watching the other through the window.
Eric thinks Rhys has a boyfriend. Rhys thinks Eric hates him.
Of course it takes some meddling friends to set them strait.
