About the Author
After writing for years yet never really finding the right inspiration, Keira discovered her voice in gay romance, which has become a passion. She writes contemporary, historical, paranormal, and fantasy fiction, and—although she loves delicious angst along the way—Keira firmly believes in happy endings. For as Oscar Wilde once said, “The good ended happily, and the bad unhappily. That is what fiction means.” You can find out more about Keira and her books at: www.keiraandrews.com

Though the two appear to hate each other and hadn't spoken in years, deep down inside they are in love with each other. I felt the storms continued until they discovered each other all over again and their feeling let loose and the truth came out about the incident four years earlier.
The mega storm that was brewing for Christmas Eve and Day didn't happen and they both made it home on Christmas Day. It was important for Charlie to be there on the day of Christmas because he had promised his ailing little sister he would be and the two shared a special relationship; he did everything he could to be there.
Gavin lived down the street from Charlie and had hid his sexuality from his parents for years and now that he had Charlie back in his life he was coming clean with his parents. No way was he losing the man he had love for all those years again. His parent's had a hard time accepting it and went through the normal reaction most parents go through, but in the end love won out.
It's such a sweet romantic story that I will read again. I recommend this book.
This was a great story. I have to say that I'm so glad I picked up my first book by Keira Andrews ([book:Kick at the Darkness|25543022]) because I just love her writing. The characters are believable and likable and the stories are realistic and well written.
Charlie is a college student in San Francisco. Charlie is gay and has been out for years and his family accepts him. He grew up in Connecticut with his parents and little sister, Ava, who he loves very much. Ava had leukemia and Charlie donated bone marrow to help save her. Ava is in remission now but Charlie promised to be home for Christmas and is determined to keep his word.
Gavin is a college student in San Francisco (different college from Charlie). Gavin and his family moved to Connecticut when he was 14. Gavin is gay but has lived a lie for years because his father gave him the indication it wasn't alright and that he wouldn't love Gavin if he was gay. Gavin had a girlfriend in his high school years but they broke up before college when he couldn't keep lying to himself about his sexual inclinations anymore.
Gavin and Charlie lived 10 houses down from each other and were actually best friends for the first few months. Unfortunately, issues arose (having to do with attraction and what Gavin's father did to him) which broke up their friendship and had them as odds for their high school years. Both Gavin and Charlie heard that the other was going to college in San Francisco but they didn't get it touch while they were both there.
When the story begins, Charlie is trying to get home but his flight has been cancelled because of massive storms. He finds that all transport is booked and he gets to the last car rental place just after they've rented the last car. As it turns out, the last car was rented to Gavin and although they're both uncomfortable about the situation, they deal with it because it's for Ava and Christmas. The trip is a bit rough at first but thankfully, Charlie and Gavin get a chance to talk about their past and the fact that Gavin is really gay. Once their past issues have been dealt with, Charlie and Gavin find their attraction and emotions for each other are still there and very strong and they act on them. There are some difficulties with Gavin's parents but things work out well in the end and Gavin and Charlie head back to college, together and working towards a HEA.
I greatly enjoyed this story. I loved both Gavin and Charlie. They're both good heroes that just needed to talk things out and get over their past. Although the length of the story worked because of the past relationship between Charlie and Gavin, I do wish the story had been longer...mostly just because I liked it and didn't want it to end. Overall, this was a great Christmas romance and I'd recommend it. :D
