Up All Night Satisfaction

Blurb:  Cal Martin loathes Christmas music, especially the clichéd carols pumped through the mall speakers on endless loop. Even worse is the holiday-themed hell of Santa’s Village that looms right in front of the sports store he manages. It’s yet another hurdle for Cal as he tries to survive the world of retail during the soul-sucking holiday season… until he catches a glimpse of one of Santa’s elves and becomes infatuated with the cheery, gorgeous guy dressed in candy-cane tights.

Of course, just walking up to the guy and asking him out isn’t easy, and a botched attempt at matchmaking ends up turning a simple courtship into a mess for the gossip page. What can Cal do to overcome his social ineptitude, correct erroneous assumptions, and maybe have a merry little Christmas of his own?

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2013 Advent Calendar package “Heartwarming”.

Reviews:

Beans:  A cute read. Two young men who danced around a relationship. I understood Cal a lot more than Brock but they seemed to fit.

Their youth worked instead of being annoying. They were able to make decisions that if they had been a bit older would have hesitated and missed something great. It was a quick read and worth a smile or two.

Nina:  I really like this one. The guys are funny and sweet and the misunderstandings are endearing and fixable. Being in their early twenties makes the speed that they fall more plausible.

I loved Cal and how he got when he was around his crush and how his crush got around him.  They were adorable together and their chemistry was scorching.

Brock is awesome. Everyone should have a brother like Brock. In many ways he and the relationship made the book for me. They definitely bumped it up in my rating system.
