When Connor’s friend signs him up for a crochet course, the last thing he expects is to find love. However, at the community center, he meets hunky Finn. There’s only one problem: Finn assumes Connor’s there for the boxing class, and Connor lets him believe it, worried Finn will ditch him if he knows Connor prefers crafting to upper cuts. Can they salvage the situation when the truth comes out?

Connor had let his best friend talk him into learning to crotchet, but he hadn’t found it easy to pick up. Joining a class at the local community centre, Connor ends up trying the group project, and meets Finn when their paths crossed in the building. Can the two men find some common ground?

I enjoyed this interesting and fast paced short story. Most of the build up between Connor and Finn was the two men exchanging quick pleasantries (and eyeballing each other) while passing like ships in the night. The instant chemistry and connection though had both men eager to explore more and thus finally leads them onto a date. I was a little disappointed at just how pear-shaped that date went – though to be honest it came across to me as extremely realistic, Finn’s massive over-reaction and Connor’s stumbling incoherence really could be something virtually everyone has personally experienced before. So I felt really mixed about how most of the middle of the story turned out. While I enjoyed the fact it was realistic, I also found it a little sad and deflating to read in a fictional and romantic short story.

Thankfully, both Finn and Connor managed to work through the confusion and over-reaction (with a healthy dose of reality from a wonderfully kind-hearted old lady!) and I really enjoyed how the story ended on a high note between the two men. I also liked how while definitely Christmassy, that aspect of the story wasn’t over-done or pushed too hard. It had the warmth and feeling of a good Christmas story, but without a lot of the usual craziness that comes with those styles of stories.

Fun and realistic, this was a good story. It is incredibly sweet – not even a chaste kiss between the two men – but it’s clear they plan to begin a fresh and exciting new romantic relationship together so I’d classify this as a happily ending story.
