This erotic short by Ambrielle Kirk has defied my expectations by doing what in very few pages many can't do in an entire novel. With three-dimensional characters, chemistry that is off the charts, and a well-developed relationship, the only thing you'll have to complain about is that fact that this fantastic story is over so quickly.

Tina has wanted Craig since he whispered a naughty promise to her at a wedding. Craig has been waiting patiently to make good on that promise. So when Tina shows up at Craig's Christmas Tree Farm, they decide to explore how able Craig is to keep his word. But what begins as a bit of a challenge may develop into so much more.

This short story is only about 25 pages, but it's fully developed. We get a lot of history about Craig and Tina in a few paragraphs that show the reader that they have a friendship that has been growing over months. We also get a look into the type of people they are based on their past, which is surprising in such succinct piece of writing. The characters are whole and they are not cardboard cut-outs by any means. I think that all really speaks to the author's writing ability. The sexual encounter is very sensual and full of emotion beyond the intercourse. The reader becomes a part of this experience as the two friends evolve into lovers.

Overall, this compact story packs a punch. It's got great characters, a wholly established back-story, and steamy sex. I can't say that I could ask for more, except that I was so sad when it was over so soon. I could have read on for hours.
