Too quick, like so many holiday stories, but I smiled a lot while reading it, so it's a win. It's more like the beginning of a meet-cute romance than a real relationship story, but what's here is well done.

Short story is tricky – I think. Sometimes author can maximize the length and make an impact, sometimes they don’t. Unfortunately, I think this one doesn’t really offer something more in the span of 20 or so pages. You read the blurb of this one, and that’s the story. Luce has a bad break-up, his ex then drove a car through his garage and makes a big hole, and Luce needs it fix before the family coming over.

There isn’t enough story in page for relationship progress between Luce and the neighbor’

This is a short, sweet little sexy story, that deals with stupid exes and hot next door neighbors. When Luce gets a hole in his home, from his stupid drunk ex, he was at a loss on what to do because no one could help him and he was hosting Christmas. His neighbor had been hinting at her son being gay to him and apparently to her son as well. So both thinking the worst of the other, they meet and it’s instant attraction. Luce hopes this Christmas will bring a miracle for his home and for his ...more

With a book this short, it's difficult to really get into the romance of it all, but this one had so much instant attraction, I fell for it.

Both MC's were sweet and outgoing, communicating their pasts and desires quickly, then skipping to the relationship.

Would I have loved a longer story? Yes. Absolutely. I enjoyed all of the characters enough that to see a full length book would have been nice.

Would I recommend it? Yeah, I really would. It was quick, straight to the point, and the ending was

Ok, so after meeting Sam Burns at GRL in 2018, she appeared a shy, but 'I know what I like and you're not going to persuade me into doing what you want' type of person. She is so all that, and she is very passionate in her writing.

The ex that almost ruined Christmas.

Some laughs, good chemistry and the hole in the wall.

When Luce's drunken ex decided that a car through his home was appropriate, Luce's was only too glad to see the man get what was coming for him.

3.5 Stars ~ I specifically chose this story to read because as soon as I read the description, I knew this would bring back memories. You see, many years ago my family and I were hanging out in our kitchen working on finishing up the Thanksgiving dishes when we heard a thud. Going to look we discovered a car lodged in the wall/picture window of our living room! Unlike Luce in this story, no one was intoxicated when this accident occurred, simple gravity was at fault as the young woman had ...more

So I get that this is a Christmas shorty but goodness that went by so fast that I felt like I had whiplash. Started out promising enough. Luce's alcoholic ex drove a car into Luce's garage and house leaving a gaping hole a week before Christmas. Desperate to find someone to fix it and that someone is his next door neighbor's son. I think they've barely said hello and one is caressing his thumb across the other's cheek while the other is gripping the other by his hip. I've read insta-lust and ...more

Fun meeting. I liked they were comfortable with each other quickly, but would have liked a longer story.

It was very enjoyable read but too short to be perfect. Still it left me with a smile and that's all I can ask for a holiday story.
