Story Overview:
Dashing von Stride has one thing on his mind: winning the window display contest for the Miracle on Main Christmas Contest. His plans are set and ready—and then he walks into his toy store, Reindeer Games, to find a sleigh that shouldn't be there. The mystery sleigh sparks a new plan, however, and now all Dash needs is the perfect Santa to model his display after. 

This year, the pranks with his reindeer have gotten out of hand. Instead of preparing for the Big Day, Niklaus Kringle is hunting for his missing sleigh. Locating it should have been easy, but games easily won are seldom worth playing…

My Review:

Okay, look at that cover and then read the description of this book. That's exactly what you get with this one, as promised. It's fun and light and fluffy and full of moments that simply left me with a smile on my face because of the pure sweetness of it. This is a book that you need to read when you want to decompress from the stress of the holidays and simply remember some of the magic that seemed to surround the time when you were a kid...only now it's also filled with some male/male sexy times to make it even twice as nice...or naughty...depending on how you like to look at it.

This book is about Dash...he's part elf, but doesn't know it. Some unknown danger caused his mom to leave him in the Colorado town of Wassail, surrounded by Christmas magic and her wards to protect him. He doesn't know any of his family history, but his family line is tied to Santa's reindeer and somehow they sense him and leave Santa's sleigh in his workshop, where Nik finds it and Dash, who just happens to be his mate. 

Instant chemistry...oh, and a helpful snowstorm to make sure they act on it. :D

Like I said this book is pure fun. There are moments throughout the holiday season when I love to be transported to a magical, seemingly impossible place like this in a book...just for the fun. This is the PERFECT book for that this year. It isn't very long, so it's not a huge time commitment, but it's so emotionally satisfying. Be prepared from some Hallmark-esque over the top sweetness, but honestly, that's a whole lot of the appeal for this type of book and it definitely delivers. And did I mention there are some naughty man on man action? But they're fated mates so it's awesome, even though the sequence of events happens super fast! Holiday magic at its best. Yeah, this is a good one! 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

This looks adorable. I'm not usually one for Christmas stories, but I don't know if I can pass this one up. Thanks for sharing. Great review.
