The work Christmas holiday party starts with a lot of expectations for Seth; in the last week Seth changed himself from a nerdy geek to a butterfly to please Oscar, a co-worker he has a crush on. And tonight Seth wants to move to the next level with Oscar. But all his hopes are crashed when he discovers that Oscar is using him to obtain a promotion... Seth is still shocked when another surprise is ready for him: Arnost Sarac, the CEO's assistant, has decided that Seth should be his Christmas present! Well I will say that this is not a problem, since Arnost is a very handsome man, with a Nordic look and a very gentle soul and touch, the right man to soothe the pain in Seth's hearth.

The story is really short, 35 pages, and it's actually only a scene, the Christmas party night. But the author gives the reader enough details to imagine Seth and also Seth's friends; he is not a character without development, it's easier to imagine all his background and all his joy for what he is expecting for Christmas. And so the reader can sympathize with him when he suddenly seems to have lost everything only to find a way better gift under the Christmas tree. Arnost is maybe on the second line, but also him has some nice features that makes him an easy character to like for the reader.

When you find such good characters, you can only say that it's a shame that they leave you so soon.

Book description
Seth is having a scarily good time at the office Christmas party this year. He owes it all to his hoped-for boyfriend, Oscar, who turned him into a carefree programmer from an uptight nerd. If Mr. Saroc, the company CEO's assistant, would quit dogging his steps at work, Seth believes his happiness with Oscar will be complete in time for kissing under the mistletoe.
