Blurb: An aggressive super-flu pandemic wipes out a majority of the population over the course of one Christmas holiday—and brings Tobin and Kyle together. For almost a year, they’ve been trekking across the country from Colorado toward a sanctuary in upstate New York. Kyle’s survival skills have kept them alive, and Tobin wants to repay the man he loves with a very special gift of his own making. He sneaks off in search of the last few pieces… only to get himself and Kyle kidnapped by a desperate stranger. With their journey to New York on hold—possibly indefinitely—they’ll need to accept that home isn’t always defined by a place as much as the person you’re with.

Review: Well one never expects to wake up on Christmas and find almost everyone dead from a very aggressive super flu. Tobin and Kyle made it. Kyle had in fact saved Tobin’s life one night, and they have been together ever since. They decided to go to New York where a sanctuary is set up. To bad they hadn’t expected to get kidnapped. They soon realize home is where your loved one is.

When I first read the blurb for this I wasn’t really to sure how it was going to turn out. Especially for the Christmas season. I admit I was kind of expecting zombies. It is two young men trying to survive. It turned out to be a blast to read and I really enjoyed it. I loved how their kidnapping turned out. It would seem the kidnapper was just about as crazy as they were. It was a sweet story that intrigued me quite a bit.

I had a blast reading it and can guarantee that you will too.

Driven to Distraction by Cassie Decker (Bah Humbug Giveaway!)

Author: Cassie Decker

Genre: Contemporary, Cowboys, Holiday

Length: Short Story (23 Pages)

Heart Rating: ♥♥♥ 3 Hearts

Blurb: Cowboys Wyatt and Brady are competing in a team roping event in Missoula, Montana’s annual Christmas Eve rodeo. Christmas is Wyatt’s favorite time of year and nothing is going to dampen his holiday spirit, not even his surly, no-nonsense roping partner. They’ve only been riding together for a week, but Wyatt has already secretly fallen head-over-boot-heels for Brady, though it’s painfully obvious Brady only has eyes for the rodeo’s grand prize purse.

When Brady is distracted during a crucial moment in the night’s first roping run and nearly disqualifies them, Wyatt is almost certain he is going to be another of Brady’s many rejected partners. Will Wyatt and Brady be able to sort out their differences and work together to win the grand prize? Maybe if Wyatt can show Brady that Christmas really is a time for miracles.

Review:  This is a very cute story about two men who are roping partners and are attracted to each other.  However it would seem Brady has more on his mind then Christmas, but for you to find out you have to read the story.

It is a very cute little story that has one hell of a happy ending.  I got a kick out of it, but I have to say that it was not what I had expected it to be.  It did show a little bit of Christmas miracles happening.  I could see myself reading this more than once, however it would make for a better long story then it does a short one.
