Title: Exit Through The Gift Shop (
Alex’s traditional family Christmas Compromise means spending the holiday at a second-rate theme park, Poseidon’s Planet, but Alex doesn’t mind. He enjoys the rides and the company of his family, and it’s a good break from his going-nowhere existence back in Indiana. Then he meets a certain sexy employee in a pirate costume, and Alex’s vacation gets even better. But thrill rides last only a short time, and sooner or later everyone has to return to real life. Alex long ago gave up on marrying a handsome prince—will he have to give up on his pirate as well?
This was so freaking cute! Single, third-person, POV with insta-love, no angst, no steam, a happy family, and a very happy ending.
Twenty-seven year old Alex is on his family’s annual “Christmas Compromise” holiday vacation in Florida when he meets and feels an instant connection to thirty-four year old Rory, a sweet and sexy worker at Poseidon’s Planet.
For as short as this is, only 34 pages, it didn’t feel like anything really got left out. The characters felt well-fleshed out and while I could have happily read more it does end with a solid, and sweet, HFN.
