This story had Yummy Goodness written all over it. Friends-to-lovers is one of my favorite tropes and what better time for two friends to get together than over the holidays. Such fun!
Sawyer and Hollis have been friends for many years, they actually grew up together and watched Hollis' sister and Sawyer's brother fall in love, get married, and start a family of their own..but for some reason Hollis steered clear of Sawyer even though he had feelings for him. But that time has come and gone and Sawyer was going to make sure of it.
Christmastime has been rough for Hollis since his parents death a few years earlier, but Sawyer is determined to get him out of the depression he always falls into as the holidays near.
And what better way to do it than with a little wager, if Sawyer wins the towns most favorite Shop window Hollis has to go on an actual date with him.
