DSP Advent Calendar Review ~ Barbies and Beaches by Asta Idonea

Dreamspinner Press 2018 Advent Anthology Warmest Wishes ~ Release Day Review ~ Barbies and Beaches by Asta Idonea

Title: Barbies and Beaches

Author: Asta Idonea
Category: Holiday, Advent
Pages: 21

For the first time ever, Shane is not looking forward to the annual Boxing Day barbeque at Matty’s house. He recently divorced, none of his friends know what to say to him now, and Shane is tired of the pity and awkwardness. Things take a turn, however, when he meets Matty’s English cousin. Neil is struggling with the Australian heat, having left the UK after a bad breakup. When Shane suggests the two of them head to a secluded beach to cool off, the growing intimacy between them might make both reassess their current situation.

4 Stars!

So, it was kind of weird of reading about Christmas down under with sun and a grueling summer. I can't even imagine temps so high, to be honest. Still, it was a short and sweet story and it was lovely seeing Shane and Neil fall for each other. The epilogue made it all the sweeter, even if I wouldn't have minded to see more of these guys. Recommendable!
