Adrian Delgado’s time in the Peace Corps has been rewarding, but with Christmas around the corner, he is starting to get homesick. Life in Mongolia is very different from Texas, from the holiday celebrations to… dating. Take his coworker Batbayar, for instance—they’ve slept together several times and spend most time outside of work in each other’s houses. But are they “together,” or friends with benefits? Maybe a Mongolian Christmas and a sheep’s head in the bathtub can lead to the answer.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2014 Advent Calendar package “Celebrate!”.
I will admit My You by Tamer Lorika story had me a bit wrong footed from the start. It wasn’t long enough for me to completely get into the characters or the setting, so I don’t think I could fully appreciate the story Lorika was trying to tell.
The main character is confused by his relationship with Batbayar at the beginning of the story. I wish I could help him figure it out, but I never really did myself. It seemed to be more of a way to through out a bunch of Mongolian cultural references than a love story centered on Christmas… which is what I think it was aiming for.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
I have a number of paperbacks, most of which are signed, to giveaway. Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks. There are also some misc swag items, so there will be a few packs of these to give away as well.
Thank you so much for your support over the last 4 years. Prism will be closing its doors on 1 April 2017. All content will remain available, but no new content will appear after 31 Mar 2017. As such all request forms have been turned off. Again Thank you,
