Blurb: Mitchell Nolan is a bartender working late on Christmas Eve. As the last patrons leave, he stays behind to clean up. Why hurry home? There’s no one waiting for him, and he knows Santa won’t bother leaving anything special for him this year.
Then he meets Romy Lariner, who ducks inside the bar when his car won’t start. Sparks fly between these two lonely men this Christmas Eve. Maybe Santa has a little something up his sleeve for Mitchell after all …

Review: Mitchell is feeling the loneliness of his life as he closes up the bar. Thinking back to his ex and how it ended with an ‘it’s not you’ speech, when a handsome man comes in. Romy enters the bar to use the phone when his car breaks down and gets more than he bargained for.
This is a hot short that makes you hot under the collar. There is instant attraction between these two men and it is a sensual seduction between them as they flirt and touch and then have some explosive hot sex. We don’t get to know the characters and there is no big storyline but it is one hot little short that gives us the very beginning of a relationship that hopefully lasted longer than just one night, the potential was there.
So I would recommend this to those who love short stories, instant attraction, hot bar sex and a sweet ending.
