When Tate promises his niece Addie he’ll get a book signed by her favorite author, he never expects to end up in a line four blocks long with sleet coming down around him. It’s three days until Christmas and he’s cold and miserable, but Addie will be devastated if he gives up.

A cute guy who offers him an umbrella is just the encouragement Tate needs to stick it out, especially when Brandon brings him something hot to drink. But the signing ends before Tate can get to the front of the line, and Tate is sure he’s ruined Christmas for his niece. Luckily Brandon gets him in to see the author, who happens to be his mother.

A simple thank you isn’t enough for Tate, and neither he nor Brandon wants to end things there. For two men unused to such an instant mutual attraction, the Christmas season just got a little more merry.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package “Sleigh Ride”.

My View:

Worth the Wait felt like the first couple of chapters to a longer story and I would certainly jump at the chance to read more about Tate and Brandon.

Tate is being the good Uncle for his niece who is currently overseas, standing in a very long queue on a very wet night to meet an author to have her newest book signed. He misjudged the weather and the number of people who would attend but is rescued by a Good Samaritan who stops to chat, offering his umbrella and delivering hot coffee.

Brandon is there to help his mum but is wary of telling people who she is as they tend to lose interest in him and want to know all about her.

They are cute together. Tate appears to live with his head in the clouds and Brandon finds it endearing. As they make plans to spend Christmas together the story ends rather abruptly and I was left wondering whether they reached a HEA.
