As they attempt to find a way out of their “predicament”, Frankie gets hungry. It seems the only food around is peppermint schnapps and chocolate Santa Clauses. Frankie gets a bit tipsy, making him bolder than he would normally be. In his slightly inebriated state, his feelings for Bill emerge. Frankie kisses Bill and Bill reciprocates, making things quite warm. He's happy, but shocked to realize that his crush on Bill is not that farfetched. In fact, Bill has been noticing him as well. While waiting to be rescued, they open up to each other about their fears, likes, and dreams. Bill and Frankie begin to see how they are not so different after all; actually, they may even complement each other.
This is an amusing, sexy holiday story reminding everyone not to judge a book by its cover. Clare has written the story in first person with alternating chapters between Frankie and Bill. With such a short story, this proves to be an efficient way to present each character's point of view. It was enlightening to see how different each man’s perception was and how well they were able to figure things out together. Thanks, Clare, for the bit of Christmas cheer.

I did laugh that neither of them had cell phones with them, because of course they didn’t! Frankie tends towards verbal vomiting when he’s nervous and boy does that happen. “Sorry, I gabble when I’m nervous. God, how mortified am I?” Ahh but Frankie is not what he seems. For that matter, neither is Bill.
It takes some chocolate Santa’s, some peppermint schnapps and a while locked in a dark room (yep, the power goes out) for the two of them to get an idea that there is more to the other than they thought. It’s a cute, fluffy holiday story that made me smile
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.
