Ethan Hall plans to fill Saturday, December 23, with junk food and bad TV, a day just for him amid the holiday chaos… until his baby sister calls and begs him to go collect a present for her. At the biggest shopping center in Australia. On the busiest shopping day of the year. Hell no. Right?
Ethan’s soft heart gets the best of him. He battles through the parking lot, and in the main shopping concourse, he’s trampled, elbowed, and bombarded with terrible holiday music. Then he enters hell itself, a specialty store aimed at women… where he meets Ty. They bond in a sea of estrogen and manic shoppers, fighting together to attain freedom, only to find they’re not quite ready go their separate ways.
This was a cute story. Ethan can’t help but give in to help his sister and meeting Ty make all of his frustration worth it. It’s strange how Ethan and Ty are connected and could have met so many times but it just seems they were never in the right place at the right time. I loved their connection and how much they want to see how they can work together. I love that they don’t jump in too much but want to spend as much time together as possible.
Cover art by Paul Richmond is the 2017 Advent Calendar Stocking Stuffers general one. It’s cute, humorous, and in keeping with the overall tone of the series.
