Grateful by Kim FieldingHot
Nate Roth is accident prone. There's no getting around it. If there's a puddle to be stepped, in or a dare to be accepted, he's your man. Having crashed off a kiddies tricycle, broken his arm and collected bruises and stitches from his latest dare, Nate is dreading going home to his family for the first four days of Hanukkah. It's not that they don't care, it's that they care too much. He's just not ready for the fuss and worry he'll cause. Then there's the nagging he'll get for not having found a boyfriend...
Gio DiPietro is an impossibly gorgeous man who meets Nate at a roadside stop whilst he's travelling home. Nate is clearly having a breakdown of some sort and Gio can't resist coming to the rescue of this adorable disaster. After helping Nate buy Hanukkah presents to replace the ones he's forgotten at home Gio suggests Nate owes him a favour, in the form of an unexpected date. How can Nate refuse? Bringing Gio to share the second night's feast with his family is the most unexpected date Nate can come up with. He knows Gio is estranged from his family because of his 'lifestyle' and hopes spending some time with the chaotic Roth family will be just what Gio needs.
In the space a few days sparks fly and relationships begin. Gio and Nate find feelings developing that might just lead to a HEA. Nate's family find a lost young man who seems to fit right in to the chaos.
Grateful is a sweet, funny read. It is also a reminder of the important things during the holiday season. Learning to cherish what you have, being open to new experiences, people and a love which might lead to all you've been looking for. That a family who worries about you isn't the worst thing in the world. . A very holiday enjoyable read.
