Milo is too nice to say no when the desperate call goes out for more staff to work Boxing Day at Eden Consumer Electronics. It’s just until they sell the door-crasher specials, but it means he can’t see his billionaire boyfriend Lance until later that day.
Lance spends December 25 jetting back from a business trip, eager to see Milo. He calls as soon as his flight lands Boxing Day morning, only to find out that seven hundred and thirty televisions are cock-blocking him.
What’s the point of being a billionaire if you can’t spend your way around obstacles? Milo doesn’t want Lance solving his problems with cash, but he’ll never find out because Lance’s efficient personal assistant, William, is on the case. Unfortunately, even billionaires are subject to the law of unintended consequences—and these aren’t the kind Lance can buy his way out of.
Will Lance and Milo have their Boxing Day date? Or have Lance’s pushy billionaire ways finally gone too far?
The Billionaire’s Boxing Day Bargain by Ava Hayden is a very cute holiday romance in the Dreamspinner Press Advent Stocking Stuffer collection. A very rich man wants his boyfriend home with him instead of at the failing electronic store where he’s filling in for a friend. Many humorous moments ensue before the couple reunites at the end.
It’s funny, angst free, low flame, holiday fare. I enjoyed it while I was reading it even if I can’t remember too much about the couple and story right now. I do remember thinking that the monitor/tv thing was funny or was it the blender? Thing was…I could almost see a very rich man doing exactly that to get his way…a very realistic and humorous touch.
There’s a happy ending for all and isn’t that what we want in a holiday story? Only this one comes as a contemporary romance, missing that touch of Christmas magic I love to see in most of mine.
Cover art by Paul Richmond is the series cover for all Stocking Stuffer stories and filled with good cheer and humor although not specific to the individual stories.
