…we're keeping our name but expanding our offerings!
All is not sparkly snowflakes and sweet candy canes in North Pole City. Office workers Tim and Noel do nothing all day but antagonize each other—petty fighting that might be based on hatred… or a heated mutual attraction. It’s up to Jack Frost and his elf-friend Rudy to broach the hostilities and introduce some Christmas kisses, but is the Frost Prince up to the challenge of launching a new romance when someone’s trying to break his holiday spirit?
This might be the MOST adorbs thing I have ever read.
Ok, so I’l admit, starting out, I had trouble getting into this. I mean, all I could picture when I was reading a story about elves and living in the North Pole and working for Mayor Kringle was those old school clay-mation holiday films and how everyone looks miniaturized. And then my mind went to the movie “Elf” with Will Ferrell and I was certain there was no going back from there.
BUT…when I convinced myself that these were real’ish men living in a real city that just…had magical powers and over-the-top holiday cheer, I was able to come back into it. And having done that, I wanted to hug it.
I’m not a Noel fan. I mean, I get why he was so grumpy. But there’s a line between being grouchy at someone and actually trying to ruin there lives. And I think he crossed it with Tim. But Tim, I could hug and squeeze, and hang out with all day long. And don’t get me started on the hotness that was Rudy & Jack (looking forward to reading their story: “The Heart of Frost”.
By the end, the book had me smiling with joy and that’s what’s important with this holiday shorts. So yay for this one!
