Blurb: ‘Tis the season — pine needles, sap, and frozen limbs — yet these two can still feel the heat between them.
Three years ago, Grant left for school, but he didn’t leave without regret. An attraction to his friend Wyatt that he’d never pursued has haunted him these past years. Finally, while home for the holiday break, he has a second chance when he runs into none other than Wyatt himself.
Wyatt has always regretted the moment lost between him and Grant. When Grant starts working at Wyatt’s family Christmas tree farm, Wyatt can sense that the feelings between them have never dwindled in all the time that they were apart. A second chance is brought before them, but what will happen when Grant has to return to school?
Wyatt and Grant almost kissed in high school but then Grant left for school for three years. Now back home for Christmas, Grant and Wyatt get a second chance to explore the moment they missed and the possible feelings between them. But how will things turn out when Grant has to go back to school?
I really enjoyed this one because of the second chances feel to it. I loved that Wyatt and Grant had a missed moment in high school and then didn’t speak for three years. I really liked that even after three years, their feelings for each other didn’t change. But like the other stories in this series, I wanted it to be longer! I’d have loved to see more of Wyatt and Grant especially when they sorted things out but also so they could have been more developed.
All in all, another nice story in the series. It’s a fun, sweet short read that’ll sure to leave a smile on your face. All these are good fun and I can’t wait to see who gets their story next!
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
