Dec 10, Cristina Monica rated it liked it Shelves: college , cute , new-adult , christmas , m-m-romance , gay-for-you. Blame It on the Mistletoe is what I needed yesterday. It is short! It is sweet! It is light! The story takes place in December, but, except for the mistletoe thing and little Christmas references, I could easily see this story taking place during any other season.
The fact that it wasn't a 'heavy' book helped me get into the holiday mood, but I wished it contained more elements linked to the celebration. Mick and Fielding are sharing an apartment. Still, he knows how to have fun and interact with others. Why would he kiss a guy? A guy he starts feeling more and more attached to. Could it be that he might actually feel something for his friend? Something on the…romantic side? Still, I repressed it as much as I could and tried to only focus on the chemistry between characters, which was easily noticeable.
Fielding made this story for me. He is adorkable. But, Mick is the one I could understand best, in a way. It is strange to say this, but everything he was thinking felt like something I would too, if I were in that situation. Sometimes I even predicted his next lines, which is something I usually can never do with characters in a story, except if the story in question is banal, predictable and cheesy.
But that was not the case here. The kind we can see in many books or hear of: head cheerleader, best girl friend that gives more the impression to be a psychologist and living only for the protagonist than anything else.
This is a novella set during the holiday season that might please you! View all 51 comments. Nov 17, Baba rated it really liked it Shelves: new-adult-or-young-adult , novellas-or-short-stories , m-m. Review completed November 24, The thing about Fielding was, the other shoe always dropped eventually. Because Fielding was like a database. I glowered at her. I'm not gay. Then she thought about it. Maybe you're into girls and boys, ever consider that? Maybe you're an equal opportunity employer.
A switch hitter. A man of many moods. Like oysters AND snails. By the way…what mistletoe? Blame it on Eli. She has these Christmas shorts down to a fine art. I loved both main characters, especially the adorkable Fielding.
Love me some highly intelligent geek! I loved to see the inexperienced, sheltered and self-conscious Fielding open up. He practically thawed and lit up like a Christmas tree when he was with Mick. Well, and Mick, the ladies man, had a hard time taking the plunge and leaping over the fence straight into gay territory.
I felt the urge to give him the final nudge…just…do it already! I liked how protective Mick felt about Fielding and he really did take good care of him. My issues Christmas stories are usually sweet and carefree and rightly so. So when Mick remembered a view spoiler [sexual experience he had with his best friend's aunt my jaw almost dropped to the floor.
She was thirty years old at that time and Mick was fourteen. Excuse me but I had to read that twice because I felt like a stone had hit me on the head. Firstly, I found that memory disturbing because it's sexual abuse even though Mick didn't have a problem with it and secondly, I found it even more disturbing because it was mentioned only briefly, like it wasn't anything grave. Still, any way you look at it, it's abuse and the aunt exploited a kid, a teenager.
I don't care if he was horny, it's just wrong. And last but not least the author took a serious detour into Sapsville during the epilogue. It made my teeth hurt and I could have done without that. Thank you very much. Geez, these two guys are darn young. I'm of the opinion that they should have waited a few years before they got hitched.
Besides, it wasn't even a proposal, Fielding practically ordered Mick to marry him. Anyway, I don't intend to sound negative because I really did enjoy this quick read very much. A super quirky and super-duper cute Fielding who turned out to be very cool and sexy managed to put a silly smile on my face all the time. And Mick, the gorgeous jock, wasn't anyone to sneeze at either.
It cannot be denied, these two guys formed a very special and gorgeous couple and I'm glad they got their happy ending. There's definitely something to be said about the friends to lovers theme.
Extra thumbs up from moi. More please.

Blame It on the Mistletoe Series
It was the second of December and we were waiting in line at The Coffee Clatch. The campus coffee joint was bedecked and bedazzled with holiday spirit including colored mini-lights, tiny, fuzzy Santa hats on all the espresso machine handles, and displays of giant holiday cookies. Fielding would be bouncing off the walls on a sugar high all month long. It was more or less a hypothetical question. I was about to get more serious about my anti-sugar lecture when someone pressed into my back. By the feel of the soft curves along my spine that someone was female.
