When his assistant offers to help him escape the mounting obligations of the holiday season by running away to Hawaii, Chandler jumps at the chance. Only to find nothing is quite as he’d expected.

Micah Keolu has lived in Hawaii all his life. He has to work two jobs and has little time for a social life, but his loving family and the island beauty around him have given him a heart as big as the ocean. And then one day he rescues a man trapped in an elevator in the building where Micah lives and works maintenance.

The unexpected happens as they find themselves drawn together, only to learn there is more to each other than meets the eye. Can two men from very different worlds find a way to enrich each other’s lives? Maybe the magic of the holidays just might bring them lasting joy!

Review:  These two authors have given us a treat tonight.  I have been reading quite a bit of stories for this calendar this past week and was getting use to the short stories that were offered.  They were cute but way too short to get more than just a taste, however B.G. Thomas and Noah Willoughby have given us a novella that will brighten your days and make you smile.

Chandler is a very wealthy young man who doesn’t appreciate the smaller things in life.  His mother is pushing him to take more interest in their company but also wants him to be with a woman.  So after pushing him, his assistant makes him an offer he can’t refuse.  A way out for the holidays.  He just hadn’t expected it to be in such a small apartment in Hawaii.  He was supposed to be hiding from his family but he just hadn’t expected it to be so drab.  Stuck in an elevator however gives him the best gift.  It gives him a sexy maintenance man.  

Micah has lived his whole life in Hawaii, never even seen the rest of the United States.  He has a heart of gold and his heart is standing right in front of him.  Now for the whole story you are just going to have to read this cute story.  It will brighten your day, trust me.

I have enjoyed reading this story and can guarantee that it will become a favorite among the holidays for me.  It shows a man who has everything, that he is indeed missing something perfect.  That Christmas is not for receiving but for giving.  I had a blast reading this and I can guarantee that you will too.
