GOT ME MERRY Vet Shop Boys #6
by Casey Cox
Can my best friend get me to enjoy the holidays? Ho… Ho… Um… No?
Christmas just isn’t my jam. The crowds. The cold. That Mariah Carey song blasting everywhere I go. Thanks, but no thanks.
Don’t get me wrong. I’m no Grinch. The holidays are awesome if you have a great family and money to shower them with gifts. Unfortunately for me, I have neither of those things.
All I want for Christmas (great, now I’m quoting that damn Mariah song) is to focus on my internship at the Vet Shop Boys clinic and hanging out with my best friend and roommate.
Turns out Chester has got other ideas. Along with a crew of loved-up vets, he’s on a mission to get me to enjoy the holidays and fall in love with him.
There’s no way I’ll ever become one of those festive people who likes Christmas, but who knows? Maybe this will be the first holiday season that actually gets me merry?
Got Me Merry is book 6 in the Vet Shop Boys series and can be read as a stand-alone. Expect plenty of humor, found family, best-friends-to-lovers, a grumpy Christmas Grinch, a sunshiny Christmas lover, some very wacky Christmas traditions, a sizzling hot fun run on a freezing winter day, a two-legged dog with a heart of gold, meddling vets determined to add a sprinkling of love to the holidays, and a heartwarming happily ever after!

I melt into his touch, savoring a moment I thought would never come. I’d always wondered what kissing Law would feel like, and now I’m getting a taste of it. It’s sweet and eggnoggy and so very Lawson.
I’m in the best kind of shock about it, while reminding my future self to always let Lawson be in charge of the alcoholic contribution to all my eggnogs from here on out.
The kiss deepens, and slowly, I emerge out of the haze I’ve fallen into. What we’re doing hits me smack bang in the chest. But instead of freaking out, or wanting to put a stop to it, the voice inside me whispers three little words.
Go for it.
So I do. This could be the one and only time in my life I ever get to be like this with Lawson, so I intend on making the most of it.
I charge my fingers through Lawson’s silky-soft black hair. I meet the movement of his tongue with my own, but I take it up a notch. Or eight. Going slow like we have been up until this point is fine and dandy, but I really want to kiss the life out of him.
All the years of pent-up frustration and secretly pining for my best friend I’ve been carrying around find an outlet as my tongue tangles with his. Delicious sounds spill out from the sides of his mouth, like he’s surprised in the best way possible at this sudden escalation surging out of me.
I capture his face in my hands, fully taking over now. I don’t know what’s come over me, but I need this. Our tongues are dueling, my body is on fire. Every nerve ending I have is singed with pleasure I didn’t think was possible to get just from kissing.
I hope Law’s feeling the same way I am because if I can make him feel even half as good as how he’s making me feel right now, he’ll remember this kiss for the rest of his life, too.
There’s nothing but moaning and heavy breathing and sounds of the springs of our old couch creaking filling the air around us. I lose track of time, consumed by something so ravenous and deep that the intensity catches me completely off-guard.
Eventually, Lawson pulls back. I’m met with two half-hooded eyes dripping with nothing but desire and want.
It’s the hottest I’ve ever seen Lawson look.
I gently caress his puffed-out, just-been-kissed lips with my fingertips, before peppering his jaw and neck with a series of smaller kisses, nibbles, and licks. He smells so good, and he tastes even better.
I reach around to pull his hand from my neck. With our eyes locked on each other, I give his fingers three tiny presses. His eyes twinkle in recognition as he squeezes back four times.
Holy heck. I just kissed my best friend, and I think we both liked it.
