Author Name & Publisher: Jayce Ellis (Dreamspinner Press)
Publication Date & Length: July 23, 2016 – 53 pgs
Alex Corrigan is in love with his boss, Judge Lawson Daniels, and thinks those feelings are returned. That assumption is sorely tested two days before the court holiday party they’re organizing together, when the venue calls and cancels, followed by a snafu with the caterer. Alex could handle that, but after an intimate dinner followed by a decidedly unromantic e-mail, he’s left wondering about the future of his employment as well as his relationship with the debonair older man.
Law can’t wait to see his clerk again. But Alex is cold and distant in the light of day, and Law doesn’t understand. The party looms in the background, but Law’s excitement is turning to dread. On top of that, someone is sabotaging them, trying to get Alex fired and drive Law off the bench. If there’s any chance for a happy holiday for Alex and Law, they’ll have to find out who.
This was a very good short story with intrigue, crushes turned more, and a little bit of mystery.
I really enjoyed reading Law and Alex’s story. From the beginning of the book you could tell these two men had a lot of chemistry between them.
Add to the crush that Law and Alex have on one another and them both doing little things to get a small reaction from the other and the fact that everything that could go wrong with the employee Christmas party they have planned, has went wrong and you have a book made for a fun read.
This was a great short story of how these two men came together. I like that Jayce Ellis added in the element of mystery behind how or what was the cause of all the Christmas party disaster. Can’t wait to read more books by this author.
