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?
Friends to Lovers and a road trip!
This was a really cute story. When Christmas travel plans are thwarted by crazy weather two past friends run into each other at the counter of a rental car agency, one car – two people – same destination. Sounds easy right? It should be, after all these two guys are not only past friends but neighbors…but it isn’t an easy solution because there are a lot of past feelings between the two.
Gavin has always loved Charlie. Charlie has always loved Gavin. Miscommunications, assumptions, and fear led to two friends not speaking to each other for over 4 years. Now they are in a car together driving from California to Connecticut in a rush to make it home for Christmas. Charlie has promised his younger sister he will be there in time to open presents and Gavin is heading to a ski trip. Needless to say plans change, passions ignite, flames are rekindled, and truths are revealed – this Is one Holiday season that won’t be forgotten.
Will these two make it or will their relationship remain only in their dreams?
