Blurb: Craft store owner Grant has always been a sucker for a pretty face, and that goes double for a pretty face with an adorable sidekick. When seven-year-old Aubrey has her heart set on taking Grant’s already-full holiday craft series, he caves and gives up his one day off a week so she (and her hot guardian, Josh) can take private lessons. Their flirting ramps up week after week, and even though Josh isn’t with Aubrey’s mother, Grant can’t be sure the man isn’t straight. Maybe he’s just being friendly. And Josh, who most definitely is not straight, is afraid of being the creepy guy hitting on the teacher.
Frustrated by their stubbornness and cluelessness, Aubrey takes matters into her own hands. She decides the best gift to give Josh is something homemade and from the heart—a boyfriend they’ll both love.

Review: Grant owns Make and Take craft store. He pretty much works every day except for Sunday. Sunday is his day with his friends. That is until he promises a sexy man and a cute seen year old to help them make some gifts for Christmas. To bad the man is straight. Josh is definitely not straight, and his eye is on Grant. He just needs the help of a little girl who is match making to get them going.
This was a pretty good short story. It was fully developed and so much detail that I was quite shocked at how short it was. It was also real charming. I loved the characters and lets just say Aubrey was a hit. She might be seven, but damn she acts so much older. She sure did set them up. It also made me want to do a little bit of crafting.
I had a lot of fun reading this and can guarantee that you will too.
