Patrick has been single since he broke up with his cheating ex almost a year ago. With Christmas looming, he’s resigned to spending it alone with only memories of happier times for company. When a business trip with a co- worker leaves them stranded in the Lake District due to heavy snow, it seems Patrick will have company for Christmas after all. It’s a shame his companion is Kyle, who’s undeniably attractive, but annoying as hell.
Aware of Patrick’s reluctant admiration, Kyle basks in the attention even though Patrick isn’t the type of man he normally goes for. Averse to relationships after being hurt in the past, Kyle enjoys the occasional hook up, but has given up on seeking anything more meaningful.
Stuck together, their antagonism escalates along with a heavy dose of sexual tension until it finally ignites. What starts as a Christmas fling soon feels like something special; but will their tentative connection melt away as the snow thaws? If they’re going to take a chance on finding happiness together, they’ll have to put their differences aside and learn to trust one another.
Contains: enemies-to-lovers, snowball fights, bickering, spanking, a cute dog, a wise old lady, mistletoe, and a happy ending (of course).
Sometimes your worst enemy can become the best thing that’s ever happened.
Case in point, Kyle and Patrick, two co-workers that couldn’t be any more different if they tried.
Kyle is very much a player of sorts, commitment-phobic and addicted to his phone and Grindr. He’s more likely to hit it and quit it than to try and form any kind of long lasting relationships. I wanted to reach through the page at a couple of parts, and just…well, I’m not a particularly violent person, but he did a couple of things, especially toward the end, that just annoyed me.
Patrick is a few years older, still feeling the sting of betrayal from his ex and resigned to spend the rest of his life alone.
Their boss insists the two of them take a business trip together just before Christmas, in hopes that they learn how to get along and work together. Unexpected car trouble on the trip forces them to stay in a small, country town over the holiday. The question is, can they do it without killing each other?
This is a cute story of two people who are polar opposites with virtually nothing in common (I say virtually because along the way, they discover they share at least one thing in the bedroom. Not gonna spoil it.) They’re trying to navigate their own personal demons and learn how to play nice to with each other in incredibly tight quarters. It’s not all smooth sailing, of course. But they get a little bit of help from the sweet older lady, Mrs. Wilcox, who seems to have an uncanny knack for seeing the attraction they have for one another, even if they can’t. At least not yet.
If you like done-in-ones told in a straight forward way with very little angst, then this ones for you.
