Charlie Yates is desperate. It’s almost Christmas and his flight home from college has been delayed. For days. Charlie promised his little sister Ava he’d be home for her first holiday season since going into remission from leukemia. Now he’s stuck on the opposite coast and someone else grabbed the last rental car. Someone he hasn’t even spoken to in four years. Someone who broke his heart.
Gavin Bloomberg’s childhood friendship with Charlie ended overnight after a day of stolen kisses. With years of resentment between them, they don’t want to be in the same room together, let alone a car. But for Ava’s sake, Gavin agrees to share the rental and drive across the country together.
As they face unexpected bumps along the road, can Charlie and Gavin pave the way to a future together?
Review: Interesting story here. You have two guys with a strange grudge against each other since high school. It really stems from a misunderstanding and Gavin's fear of being who he is due to some horrible advice from his father. It's an act of chance that brings them back together to make a trip across country, and Gavin agrees mainly because of Ava. Still, it's a long trip across country and eventually the truth has to come out. Fear is what has kept them apart, and eventually they have to work it all out. Thankfully, we get a nice ending here, and I found the story quite cute and engaging.
