At a Glance: A sweet, yet spicy tale of holiday romance.
Reviewed By: Angel
Blurb: Brick Colton has been hired to kill Santa Claus—or at least the kindhearted accountant playing Santa for the kids in an orphanage. Brick grew up in an orphanage himself, but that isn’t the only thing bothering him about the contract on Robin Marvington’s life. The details don’t add up, and it’s looking more and more like someone has set Robin up. As Brick investigates, Robin brings some much-needed cheer into his life, the light in Robin’s soul reaching something in Brick’s dark one. But all of that will end if they can’t find the person who wants Robin dead.
Review: A story about someone hired to kill Santa? Okay, I’ll try it. I love Christmas stories and this one seemed different. I was looking forward to some holiday menace amongst all the sweetness, and while some spice was here, I didn’t get the kill. And neither did Brick.
I love Greyson’s other tales of gritty shifters and gruff and closeted federal agents, but Brink and Robin’s story fell a bit short for me. The sex between the two was hot, don’t get me wrong, but I just didn’t connect with these two characters in this story. Maybe if it were a bit longer I’d have enjoyed it more, but the tale was entertaining nonetheless.
