Brand new cover, same great story!
Still recovering from an unexpected tragedy, single dad Jacob isn't sure he's ready to move on – until he meets Theo in a bar at Christmas. When what was meant to be a simple one-off encounter becomes more complicated, will Jacob have the strength to fall and trust Theo to catch him?
A sweet festive short story of 10,000 words.
A bite-sized treat!
The perfect length for reading in waiting rooms or in line at the grocery store, although the steamy scenes might make that a bit awkward! I have a good poker face. Writing was excellent, much better than I expect for the genre, and the twist at the end was both surprising and sweet. I felt for Jacob with his loss and really wanted him to find happiness. Theo was so patient with him, which I found very romantic. A lot of story considering the short word count. It’s also Christmasy without being cloying or cliche. I will probably reread it in the summer when it seems like the holidays are so far away...
