To be home for Christmas, they must bridge the distance between them.

Charlie Yates is desperate. It’s almost Christmas and his flight home from college has been delayed. For days. Charlie promised his little sister Ava he’d be home for her first holiday season since going into remission from leukemia. Now he’s stuck on the opposite coast and someone else grabbed the last rental car. Someone he hasn’t even spoken to in four years. Someone who broke his heart.

Gavin Bloomberg’s childhood friendship with Charlie ended overnight after a day of stolen kisses. With years of resentment between them, they don’t want to be in the same room together, let alone a car. But for Ava’s sake, Gavin agrees to share the rental and drive across the country together.

As they face unexpected bumps along the road, can Charlie and Gavin pave the way to a future together?


Charlie Yates and Gavin Bloomberg were childhood best friends and even more than that. Sadly, they had a falling out at the beginning of their junior year because of a certain incident. After four years of not speaking to one another, they meet again by a complete coincidence.

Charlie promised his little sister Ava, who’s in remission from leukiemia, he’d be home for Christmas. He has to get there at all costs, so he won’t break his promise, but it’s not easy. His flight has been delayed due to a snowmageddon and since buses and trains are already overbooked, his only hope is to rent a vehicle. The problem is that someone has just grabbed the last one. This someone turns out to be Gavin, a guy who broke Charlie’s heart and now offers him to share the rental. As much as Charlie hates this plan, he agrees.


Charlie and Gavin encounter some conflicts, however, the tension between them slowly dissipates as they let go and forget of what happened in the past. Then they open up to each other, they have fun and they have the greatest sex they ever had. At first they both also worry about their future, but it looks like it’s going to shine bright.

It’s a warm, sexy friends to lovers story. There’s a tad of emotions which makes it even better. I loved the alternative perspectives and the told memories. The combination of the family theme and Christmas was just great in this book.
