Blurb: As an advertising executive, it’s Logan’s job to sell people holiday cheer, and he’s good at what he does. But deep down, Logan hates everything about Christmas, so he worries that his crush on the hot baker who loves the holidays is a recipe for disaster.
Last year, Logan saw Ryan at a holiday party Ryan was catering, and the attraction was instant. In a drunken moment, Logan made it his New Year’s resolution to ask the pastry chef out. But another year has slipped away, time is running out, and Logan’s assistant demands he collect on his resolution. Can Logan find the confidence that usually comes so easily to him? And if he does, will Ryan have any interest in spending the holidays with a man who doesn’t share his enthusiasm for the season?
When I first finished this story, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. I mean, I liked it a lot. I enjoyed the fact that Logan was such a successful ad guy but that he was so awkward and nervous around Ryan. I liked that Ryan was always just there being all sweet and needing help but for some reason, I wasn’t sure how I felt about the story.
Even now I’m not sure. I’ve thought about it and I really enjoyed it so I’m going with that but I’m a little lost on what to say for this review. I loved the characters, especially Logan, and I loved the premise of the story – how Logan made a New Year’s resolution to ask Ryan out and then at the end of the year he’s struggling uphold doing that resolution. Although, I felt like something was missing out of the story that really held back from me loving it but I can’t pinpoint what that something is 😦
All in all, I enjoyed the story. It was super sweet and seeing Logan struggle with trying to ask Ryan out but afraid Ryan will say no really made me like the story. Definitely give this a good if you’re looking for something sweet and cute!
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
