An Alisa Advent Release Day Review: The Storm’s Gift (2017 Advent Calendar Daily – Stocking Stuffers) by A.D. Ellis

Rating:  3 stars out of 5
Snowed in together in their college dorm, two men share a quick connection that creates enough heat to spar with the blizzard outside.
Rory Blackwell plans to rejuvenate his mind and repair his battered heart after his world is shaken by an unexpected breakup. James Austin’s freshman-year plans of improving his social life crashed and burned, leaving him feeling as alone and outcast as he did back home.
One man is hurting while the other is eager to provide comfort. One is a virgin, the other experienced with other men. Both are looking forward to Winter Break, but can they take full advantage of their situation—or will the passion ignited between them fizzle out with the storm?
This was a nice story, more on the side of sexy than romantic.  James is very insecure and when he isn’t able to get home to his family for the comfort he needs he pretty much gives up.  Rory has gone out of his way to not notice James but the vision of him mostly naked in the elevator won’t leave his mind.  Rory provides the comfort James needs but it still seems fragile at the end of the story.  While Rory insists it isn’t a fling you can’t help but wonder when they had never really talked before the blackout.
Cover art by Paul Richmond.  It’s the wonderfully humorous cover that brands the Stocking Stuffer series this year.
