Blurb: Something big happened at the office Christmas party between Joseph and Carter, his coworker and ultimate crush. Too bad Joseph doesn’t remember it. Now, it’s New Year’s Eve, and Joseph finds himself locked in the bathroom with Carter. Joseph doesn’t understand why his natural confidence fizzles out whenever Carter is around, but the man reduces him to an awkward mess. If he can just find the courage to be himself, there might be more fireworks in his future than the ones they watch from the balcony.
When Joseph got wasted at the company holiday party, he made a move on his coworker and crush, Carter, that he doesn’t remember at all. Now at Carter’s New Year’s Eve party, he’s doing his best to avoid Carter until he get locked in the bathroom with Carter. Now what’s he supposed to do when he’s not sure what to say and it’s obvious Carter wants to talk about it.
This was a super cute story! I loved that Joseph was so awkward around Carter and didn’t know what to do when Carter locked himself in the bathroom with Joseph. I also liked that Carter was so persistent in trying to talk to Joseph. I will say, I wish this story was so much longer because I’d have loved to see the actual holiday party, seeing Joseph realize what he did and then struggle with going to Carter’s party. On top of that, I’d like to know HOW a bathroom door gets locked from the outside.
In the end, this was an enjoyable read. I liked the premise and the characters, while a little dense, were a bit of fun. I hope the author considers expanding this into a novella or novel because I’d love to read more about these guys!!
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
