Alec Ryder’s arrest in Aspen, early on the morning of December twenty-fifth, is the latest disaster in his series of unhappy Christmases. He’s dreaded the holiday since being subjected to endless church services as a child. Being kicked out on Christmas Day after he came out to his parents, followed by an improbable series of yearly yuletide trips to the emergency room, haven’t made his Christmases any merrier. But getting busted for prostitution is the worst catastrophe; it means Alec’s dream of a college degree is gone, replaced by the specter of jail time.All I Want for Christmas... Is No Christmas by Colton Aalto
Just when Alec thinks things can’t get worse, Hayden Adler shows up to interrogate him. Hayden is a glamorous attorney who also happens to be Alec’s college roommate’s cousin. Alec’s had a crush on Hayden for years, but whatever miniscule chance Alec might’ve had is now history—just like the life he’s been trying to build for himself.
But things aren’t quite what they seem. In a long line of miserable Christmases, Alec will never forget this one, although not for the reasons he suspects
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Working as a rent boy surely didn't make Alec shy stripping in his interrogation.
And Hayden's just enjoying the view :)
I felt sorry for Alec and his life, but Hayden is okay with that and not annoyed for his 'profession', is kinda heartwarming.
This one is cute, not too memorable but I enjoyed it.
More thoughts to come.
