Having to work on Christmas Eve is bad. Having to work the graveyard shift on Christmas Eve is worse. Having to work the graveyard shift on Christmas Eve when your life is a mess? Well, that’s some BS. There doesn’t seem to be a Merry Christmas in store for Sunday Marks, but maybe one call can change that.
Point of view:
1st person. Entirely from Sunday’s perspective.
I spotted this on Melanated Reader’s IG and immediately added it to my TBR.
Normally, I would scoff at a story that only covers a few hours – but Alexandria House is masterful at packing a lot into a short. Nothing felt missing at all. Sunday is working on Christmas Eve at a job she hates and is realizing that her relationship with long time love, Justin, may be over. She’s standing up for herself and not putting up with being second (third, or fourth) in his life. Little does she know that Justin has big plans for her and them.
Sexy desktop interlude, fun banter, sexting, fexting, and ultimately an HEA. Quick and enjoyable holiday read.
