This book is a part of the Dreamspinner Press Advent Calendar and another emotional story by Andrew Grey.
Four months ago, Larry Kincaid’s life was turned upside down when his sister died in a car accident leaving him the guardian of her five year old son Angus. Larry is a Financial Advisor and now his life revolves around his job and his nephew. Determined to give Angus everything he needs to help him through this trying time, Larry has no time for a relationship until the day he goes to a tuxedo store and meets Joshua Langdon.
It is Christmas time. Every year Larry has a big party for his clients and colleagues, only this year he is finding it a little more difficult because of Angus. He involves Angus in the Christmas decorations and when he tells Larry he wants to come to the party, Larry agrees and takes him to the tuxedo store for the proper attire. Not only does Larry seem attracted to Joshua, but Angus takes to him right away and invites him to the party.
When Larry sees the effect Joshua has on Angus, he is happy to have him come and hopes he will actually show up. After the party, Joshua approaches Larry and tells him of his attraction, challenging Larry to give in to his own desires. Is Larry finally going to give in and allow himself to find happiness? Is Joshua the man Larry always wanted? Is Larry the man Joshua always wanted?
There was one incident in the book that broke my heart. That was when little Angus wrote to Santa Claus asking him to bring his mother back home and then when he looked under the tree to make sure there was enough room for her to fit. Andrew Grey always manages to touch me in one way or another this book was no different.
