Mall Santas aren’t supposed to be hot.

Hunter Adams is hopelessly adrift after college. He’s still a virgin, can’t find a real job, and has no clue what to do with his life. In desperation, he returns to his humiliating old job as an elf at the Santa’s Village in his hometown’s dying mall. The Santa on the job is an unexpectedly sexy lumberjack, twice Hunter’s size and age. He makes Hunter feel very naughty—too bad he’s grumpy and intimidating.

Years after the tragic death of his partner, Nick Spini has his beagle and long, hard days on his Christmas tree farm. That’s plenty. But he can’t refuse a loyal friend’s plea for help and finds himself filling in as Santa at the local mall. Despite Nick’s attempt to stay aloof, the beautiful, anxious young man playing elf brings out his long-dormant daddy instincts.

When a surprise blizzard traps them alone in Nick’s isolated forest home, their attraction burns even brighter. Will they surrender to the sizzling connection between them and find the release and comfort they crave?

Santa Daddy is a holiday gay romance from Keira Andrews featuring an age gap, steamy m/m first times, daddy role-playing and light spanking, Christmas romance feels, and of course a happy ending.

This was a really good read. It is a book about a man finally coming into his own while the other man is finally able to move on. Both men are polar opposites. One is older and experienced. He is a loner after losing his husband and is not very good with people. The other has just recently graduated college and no experience to speak of sexually. He is shy but he is good with people. These two are an unlikely pair but both have some thing in common. One likes to be in charge and the other lines to have his “daddy” tell him what to do in the bedroom.

Hunter is back in town after graduation from college and is about to play the elf for one last time. He never expected ted to play an elf again but with limited job options, this one will do in order to buy presents for his family. What he did not expect is the Santa to be a man named Nick. More over, the man is hot.

Hunter does not make the best first impression being late for the gig but he shows in time to do his duty. Nick is not the nicest to Hunter either so when a job offer is extended to Hunter way Nick with some persuasion, Hunter is excited and unnerved at the same time.

When on his way to Nick’s for his first day, Hunter gets into a minor accident and when he calls Nick to let him know, Nick does not give him time to explain but instead hangs up on him. Hunter is frantic because he is the middle of a blizzard with no cell reception so the only option that he has is to continue on to Nick’s house on foot and hope he can find it.

What will happen when Hunter finally reaches Nick’s house? Will Nick actually listen to what happened or will he continue to be a jerk?

This was a great book. It is a book about finding love in the least likely place at the least likely time. Keira Andrew’s did a great job on this book. I look forward to more by Keira in the future.

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of Santa Daddy provided by author in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
