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.

Since elementary school, the question of Reed Watson’s race has needled him. But the one thing he’s always known is that he is destined to become an Olympic star—he felt it the moment he first hit the water. Chosen by a former Olympic swimmer to train for the 2016 Olympics, Reed determinedly works toward his dream.

Along the way, Reed develops feelings for two men he’s known since childhood: Cal, his next-door neighbor, and Mathias, his rival since the fourth grade. Cal’s struggle with his sexual identity and a tragedy complicate Reed’s feelings, while Mathias’s wealth quickly makes it obvious they are from vastly different worlds. 

As Rio approaches, Mathias becomes a gay sports icon, while Reed is told to hide his sexuality for a lucrative endorsement deal that will offer his family a financial boost and help him with mounting debt. Reed’s unresolved desires for both men remain and so too do all the things that have kept them apart. Has he grown enough to navigate rougher waters, to find truth, pride, victory, and love?

More Things In Heaven and Earth

When young Danny Crawford’s father and a priest conspire to subject him to conversion therapy, Danny only sees one way out. But little does Danny know he’ll soon have a sentinel watching from the darkness, a guardian angel in the most unlikely form imaginable.

Damien, a vampire, is inexplicably moved by Danny’s plight. He takes it upon himself to make sure Danny’s father and the priest can never hurt him again, giving Danny a chance at a normal life. As Danny grows up, Damien struggles to keep the boy—and later the young man—from harm. He does not dare go any further, no matter how much he wants to. To do so would ruin everything he’s tried to do for Danny. He doesn’t realize that as Danny embarks on a successful modeling career and begins dating, Danny feels empty, longing for something—or someone—just beyond his reach: a shadow, a presence he despairingly believes forever lost to him. 

When brutality and violence threaten Danny again, Damien must make a decision—risk revealing himself to Danny, or leave Danny to his fate.
