Calvin runs a non-profit Community Centre and is overjoyed when he discovers he has won a grant to help with his renovation costs. Bennett is from an affluent family and is being pressured by his parents to settle down. When him and his friend go to award their company's annual grant, he meets Calvin and falls hard and fast.
From the Mistle-Totally in Love blurb:
Congratulations on winning this year’s Ruby in the Rough grant!
Calvin: I’d waited years to turn the O’Cannon Community Center into a refuge for young people. But I never imagined we’d actually win the grant. And when I met the man behind the money, it seemed like things were looking up in more ways than one.
But with the center (and my heart) at stake, was he worth the risk?
Bennett: At 29, I was the proud co-owner of a wildly successful company. Too bad that wasn’t enough for my parents. They wanted wedding bells—ASAP. I never expected to fall for the gorgeous man who won my grant. But one look at him, and I knew my life would never be the same.
But with the differences between our lives, could I be the man he needed?
Mistle-totally in Love is an insta-love gay romance with a healthy dose of kissing, a holiday party best forgotten, & of course, mistletoe. It’s the second book in the O’Cannon series and can be read as a stand-alone.
Reds Book Reads Review:
Mistle-Totally in Love is a short and sweet almost insta-love story between Calvin and Bennett. As it is a shorter story, it does feel like a couple of issues are almost skirted over and I think there are issues with the couple's relationship that could have been more detailed and I would have liked to have found out more about Chad and how Bennett's family dealt with it and the other changes in their lives. That said, this was a good story and I did enjoy it.
