Stokely leads a solitary life, trying to do all the right things. He has a solid, respectable job, a properly decorated, respectable apartment, and goes to work every single day, no matter what. But it’s Christmas, and he hates Christmas, especially since his one guilty pleasure, listening to Asher Banks on the radio, is ruined with upbeat, holiday garbage.
Asher is the polar opposite—he loves Christmas to a fault and schedules himself into the ground with fundraisers to help the local community. When Asher and Stokely meet during one of the holiday spectacles Asher has thrown together, sparks fly, but neither one of them has ever had a real Christmas—or a real home. Will they be able to make one with each other?
I loved this story. Both Stokely and Asher grew up in foster care but in drastically different situations and it has affected their adult lives. It was great to see Stokely adapt and bend from his strictly structured life and ideas to help Asher and give them both happiness. Both of them deserve anything they can get and the story ended with me rooting for them to continue.
Cover Artist: Brooke Albrecht. Love the cover, just perfect for the holidays and story.
