Goodreads Summary: Alana has no choice but to accept the seasonal job as an elf in the local mall, not unless she wants to lose her apartment. She didn’t expect the man under the Santa costume, a volunteer named Jared, to be such a hunk, either. But just as the sparks between them fly, Jared tangles with a thief and is escorted out of the mall for violating the manager’s ‘hands off’ policy.
Jared can’t believe he was fired from a volunteer job just because he single handedly apprehended a thief in the mall. Worse yet, he won’t get to wish Alana a Merry Christmas and ask her out on a date. What he doesn’t expect is for her to show up on his doorstep in the middle of a snowstorm . . .
Well this was a cute story. I can honestly say though, I was listening to it on my Kindle and it went from the story to an advertisement for another book and I did a double take. I wasn't expecting it to end so suddenly. It was sweet and naughty, just what you'd expect from a erotic tale, but it bothered me that it just ended.
Jared was hot and I enjoyed reading about him. Alana was a little flat, I wish we'd known more about her. I felt more attached to Jared, but who couldn't get attached to a hot Santa who wants to spank an elf? :D
It was very sweetly written though but rather predictable. I guess it was supposed to be, again, an erotic novella. I'm eager to read more from Sue Lyndon!
