I really struggled through this one and because I felt like there was a lot of sex. I couldn't connect with the characters and even though this story takes place during December and entails all the holidays I didn't actually FEEL like it was a winter story. In fact, everything is told instead of shown so all these things that Dan and Taj did were glossed over within a few sentences. It was hard for me to enjoy and took much longer to read than I anticipated. I think if there had been more dialogue outside sexual innuendos and actual sex I'd have enjoyed it but there wasn't so it was hard for me to get through.
