Nice: The Joy of Christmas Shopping by Mara Ismine

Is visiting a sex shop with your best friend a good antidote to Christmas shopping? Or is it a good way to move the relationship to something more than just best friends? Keith and David are about to find out.

Reviewer: RedDragonfly
David and Keith met 10 years ago in a halfway house for boys with no other place to live, since that time they have become best friends. David is very socially awkward and doesn't know how to make friends or relationships, so Keith is unsure if David even feels sexual attraction. David has gone as far as looking up how to date and flirting tips in hopes of getting Keith to see how he feels. Keith finally suggests going to a sex shop while they are out shopping in hopes of getting a rise out of David. While in the shop David finally admits that he is gay and this leads to both confessing to having feelings for the other.

This was a really cute short story, there was only one brief kiss at the end so nothing heavy if that's what you are looking for. I liked both characters and would like to read more about their developing relationship. The only thing that seemed weird to me was that the sex shop they went to was in a mall. It might just be me but I've never seen any shops like that at any mall and didn't think that was something they would have at a place that families shop. I'm giving this book 3.5 stars.
