BLURB:

Cold has never been so hot.
College sophomore Derek is busy working over his holiday break—but his shifts at the toy store are no hardship if they mean more opportunity to dream about the sexy new guy working as an elf in Santa’s Workshop. When his mother gifts him a bag of cookies, Derek regifts them to Flynn as an excuse to get to know him. Flynn has presents to offer as well, and soon they’re dating, with Derek finding out his comfort zone is bigger than he imagined.
But Flynn is hiding a secret—he’s really a winter fairy whose magic is bound to the season. He can’t stay in the mortal realm, and Derek doesn’t want to lose contact with his family. Can they find a way to hold on to each other when the snow and sugar plums melt away?


I really enjoyed this short read from this author. This is my first read from this author, and I will definitely seek out more books. I felt a part of this holiday love story and really connected to the MC’s. I want to go to this other realm and be a part of it.

Derek is a college student who’s working at the toy store during Christmas break. His hours are long, but he doesn’t mind as he loves ogling over the elf at Santa’s shop across the way at the mall. Derek’s self-confidence is on the low side and he just wishes he had the guts to talk to this sexy little elf. One problem is Derek’s ex works at the shop also, and that does nothing to boost his confidence. One day, his mom stops by with a bag of cookies, and he gifts them to this elf and receives a gift back.
Flynn is a winter fairy that can only be in this realm in the winter. Flynn loves the mortal realm and comes to it every winter. When Derek offers him the bag of cookies, he is so excited. Flynn has a thing for sweets. All sweets and eats as much as he can. He gives Derek a candy cane with some magic and ends up taking care of Derek until the magic wears off. This is the beginning of a beautiful relationship.

And don’t let me forget to mention Lulu, Flynn’s tiny fairy sidekick. She cracked me up so many times with her tiny little antics to her love for fudge. This is such an enjoyable short story, and I’m sure you will read in one sitting like I did.
