Evan is a nice high school teacher. He always liked Christmas season above all when he had a partner by his side to share it. But Mark died one years before soon after last Christmas, and Evan dreads the idea of the next Christmas. On Christmas' Eve he realizes that he can't postpone no more to buy the Christmas tree, if he doesn't want to disappoint his nephews, and so he drags himself to the last tree lot open in the city.

Eric is sadly preparing himself to spend his first Christmas alone; his parents are on a winter cruise, and his sister will spend Christmas with her husband's family. He has to work till Christmas' Eve on the tree lot and then he will go at home alone with his Christmas tree. When Evan, his former high school teacher and big crush, enters the tree lot alone on Christmas' Eve is almost like a sign.

Evan's story is a bit sad, the reason why he is alone is much worst than Eric, but all in all they are two lonely soul who meet on Christmas, a pretty classic scenario, but that works well. The sad part is relegated on Evan's past, for the rest the story is nice and sometime also funny, when everytime someone ring the bell on Evan's door, they find Eric's in various status of undressing (always for a good reason that is not sexual!).

Maybe it's the Christmas season, maybe it's time to Evan to move on, but the two main obstacles on their relationship, Evan's mourning his lost lover and Eric being a former student, are soon overcame, and the nice feelings lead the story to its obviously happily ever after.

Another nice discovery of a new author.
