Former US Marine John Ving hates everything about holiday displays: they’re tacky, they waste energy, and they’re an eyesore. So what does his new neighbor do? He sets up the holiday spectacle from hell, and he doesn’t seem to care which holiday—he has a menorah, a baby Jesus, a Santa, and everything in between. Not to mention it’s swathed in enough lights his house is probably visible from space.
High-school teacher Kaden Melling loves the holidays, and huge light displays on his lawn make his heart glow. He’d love to share some cheer—and maybe some kinky fun—with his smoking hot neighbor John. Odd things start to happen to his displays, but just as he begins to think life is going his way, with the holidays and with John, a Grinch destroys everything.
It’s gonna take the display-hating John to set things right—and what he has planned might blow Kaden’s mind.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2016 Advent Calendar "Bah Humbug."

How could I possibly resist an advent calendar story from Dreamspinner Press with this title? Impossible, I tell you. The title is bad (or good) enough but the description finalized it. I've never been big on doing huge decorating for the holidays but I've enjoyed many homes that have… although I'm supremely grateful I never had to live next to one. *grins* Oh how easily I could picture the look on John's face every time he drives down his street and has to endure the decorations in Kaden's yard. I mean he was a Marine for twenty years so he can do a scowl. John isn't exactly immune to how cute and adorable Kaden is, but every time he gets near him John gets a little tongue-tied. Well, Kaden has definitely noticed his super hot neighbor, so when he sees John out front decorating with his three nephews (who conned him into it), he's thrilled to take over sugar cookies and invite him for dinner. I wanted to throttle those men who burglarized Kaden's front yard decorations. Those were keepsakes of his mom's and this is Kaden's first year celebrating after her passing. It just about breaks John's heart but since he's dealing with his ex at the time and having an epiphany about his feelings toward the holidays, I was hoping this was all going to work out. Thank goodness for John's nephews as sweet, loving little boys can oftentimes say exactly the right thing. And sexy neighbors can do the right thing to help keep you from wallowing. A delightfully sweet and very romantic story! Thank you, Thianna. It's always nice to be reminded what's really important during the holidays.
