Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5
Being evacuated from his apartment in the middle of the night because some idiot forgot his cookies in the oven isn’t the ideal way to meet a guy, but Mason’s hot neighbor Cole sure looks great in his underwear. The trouble is, Mason is the idiot who started the fire, and Cole doesn’t appreciate being lied to any more than he appreciates being driven out into the cold. It looks like their romance might end before it gets started, but Christmas is a time for second chances….
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package “Sleigh Ride”.
In Leap Through Eternity, Sara Stark has written a sweet confection of a story for the holidays. Mason is tall, adorable, holiday happy and a great cook, although not terribly focused, which can be a not so wonderful combination in the kitchen when he sets things on fire, like Christmas cookies.
Cole is a police officer misplaced by a fire in his apartment building. Cole’s not that crazy about Christmas. We never doubt that the two will get together. Its a Christmas story, it all but glitters.
The author’s descriptions sparkle, her characters come to life on the pages and if the path to love is instantaneous, well, blame it on the eggnog and the holidays. At 26 pages, Cole and Mason are adorable. Mason is the more well developed of the two characters but Cole is engaging to the point we love them both. It was a quick read and I enjoyed every word. You will too. What fun I’m having with the Advent stories!
