Frankie Faraday is a promising young salesperson at Mason’s Emporium. Bill Mason is his boss, the son of the store’s founder, and the object of Frankie’s long-suffering, deeply devoted crush. Bill is steady and sober; Frankie is frivolous and flaky. Or so they seem to each other, until the night of the annual inventory, when they’re trapped together in the Seasonal Gifts storeroom, with nothing but candy and peppermint schnapps to sustain them until they’re rescued. And then the real truths—and something definitely more intimate—emerge!
I loved Frankie. The story was nice and them as a couple were good, but Frankie sort of stole the show with that little stun at the beginning. How could he even did that?, and still felt like something that could happened. He win my heart, so fun.
It was great to see how they would manage the situation they got themselves into. They were an odd couple but it, somehow, worked just fine. I like Frankie so much more than Bill. It wasn’t that Bill was not likable, but Frankie was so charming that was impossible not to love him. The plot isn’t too complex but it is enjoyable.
I had a great time reading it, I think I got to know enough about them, but I feel like something was missing. I would love so much more emotion between them. Overall it was a nice story, really fun to read.
