Blurb:  Paxton Peterson’s favorite day of the year is his annual Gay Boy Christmas dinner. He’s checked and double-checked his to-do list, because nothing stresses him out like the unexpected. Confident everything will run smoothly, Paxton embarks on his yearly snowshoed hike through the Rocky Mountains near his home. His perfectly planned evening is cut short by Logan Charles’s careless enjoyment of his brother’s snowmobile, and Paxton is stranded in the woods. It’s the worst thing that could’ve possibly happened to him—or maybe the best.


Review: Paxton (who plans everything down to the last detail) is out taking a moonlit snoe-shoe hike on Christmas Eve when he gets almost run over by a snowmobile riding Logan.

Logan helps Paxton out and together they find themselves trapped in a one man tent overnight.

Though Paxton is “skinny fat,” and super fit Logan can’t possibly be gay or interested in Paxton – he is, and together they find that they might have more in common than they thought.


Brandon Witt has given us a wonderfully sweet and funny little holiday story that just tempts us into wanting more!

The inner monologue Paxton runs continually is hysterical and the sweet little interlude between him and Logan is sexy enough to melt snow!

I really wanted to know more about the boys from Gay Boy Christmas, and I really wanted to know more about what other presents were included in the Horny Elf Gift Exchange!

Brandon’s writing is wonderfully descriptive and engaging and I enjoyed this holiday short immensely!

Highly recommended (I wanted it to be longer!)

Overall Impression: I loved it

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher in return for a fair and honest review.*
