Ben Warren’s year is ending on a down note: he dumped his two-timing boyfriend, got laid off from his job, and moved home with his parents. Not sure what to do next, he spends the Christmas season working at his family’s Christmas Tree lot, a job he thought he’d left behind years before. When Nick Paine, a former high school track buddy, shows up in search of the perfect tree, Ben thinks it’s just another business transaction. Once Nick makes it obvious his interest is more personal, Ben realizes his year might end on a positive note after all.
Ben finds himself back living in his childhood home with his parents after the company he worked for failed. This holiday season, he is helping out with the Christmas Tree lot, a job he could very well do in his sleep! Nick, his former high school friend, comes around one evening, along with his niece, in search for the perfect tree. Agreeing to meet up the following night, in what Ben thinks is old buddies getting together, turns out to be much more!
I give this 3.5 stars. I really enjoyed this story, it was a cute, sweet, holiday short.
