Shy lawyer Kevin Anderson is presented with an unexpected opportunity when he draws hunky litigator Erik Wilson’s name for their office’s secret holiday gift exchange. Kevin has pined for his friend for a long time, but he fears ruining their working relationship if Erik doesn’t return his feelings. The anonymity of the exchange gives him the chance to let Erik know someone is interested, so Kevin turns the gift into a game: twelve days of presents, each more suggestive, culminating with a Christmas Eve meeting—if Kevin finds the courage to see it through!
Erik is intrigued by his secret Santa, who has given him something to look forward to during the holidays for the first time in years. But as Christmas approaches, he realizes he doesn’t want a mystery man; he wants his best friend, Kevin. When his attempts to instigate something with Kevin fail, Erik accepts the dinner invitation of his secret admirer. Little does he suspect that Santa’s naughty little helper might be just the man to make all his Christmas dreams come true in a holiday friends-to-lovers romance that progresses from sweet to spicy for two sexy lawyers.
I am always a sucker for a holiday story and I absolutely loved this one. Kevin is so shy and unable to see how someone, especially his attractive friend. Even as he begins this game he is unsure if he will have the courage to follow through, it’s only Erik’s responses and enjoyment that get him past his nervousness and encourage him to become bolder in his gifts.
Throughout this story you could see Erik’s eyes fully open up to how much Kevin means to him as he begins to receive the gifts and he gets support from Kevin but can’t help but not want Kevin to find someone else. Kevin and Erik are the perfect complements to each other and support the other in all their work dealings. Seeing their passion and care for one another when they finally gets together is wonderful.
Cover art by Bree Archer is wonderful and is perfect for this story.
