The Pierson family had decided to come together to celebrate the holidays. The goal? Ignore all of the things that are terrorizing their individual lives and be in one space again. What could possibly go wrong?
Mom is selling the house and has told no one. The two youngest male and female siblings have moved back home. No one knows why. There are things plaguing the family business. Why Eric Pierson thought he would be able to surprise his girlfriend with a proposal for Christmas and his “loving” family, he doesn’t know?
He receives the surprise of a lifetime when the oldest of his younger sisters unwittingly invites his ex-girlfriend, who happens to be her former college roommate and friend, to spend the holiday with the family.
This Christmas is quickly shaping up to be the one that not one of the Piersons will ever want to remember.
“Your father would’ve been proud of you. Madison beams every time she looks at that arm even though she is horrified knowing that you are in any pain because of her.”
“You think so? I think she’s pissed at me.”
Their mother had smirked and waited until Madison was out of earshot before she bent down to ask him her next question.
“Are you sexually deprived, Jamison?”
His stunned green gaze flicked to Eric before turning back to their mother. She smirked as his cheeks actually turned red with his embarrassment.
“I’m guessing that’s a no. If she was pissed off then she wouldn’t dote on you the way she does. The secret glances at her big, strong man wouldn’t happen. Sex would most definitely be off the table even if it were just for one day. Seeing as she hasn’t stopped brushing up against you, you aren’t begging for it. Quite the opposite.”
Eric had howled for ten full minutes after that keen observation from Evelyn Pierson.
