Christmas Eve night with a sexy new friend turns into the perfect Christmas. But Austin never expects his dream holiday to ruin his life.

Hoping to avoid another yearly gathering of the worst people Austin knows—his family—he volunteers to play Santa’s little helper at the department store where he works. That’s where the sexiest Santa on the planet comes to his rescue.

Will plays Santa every year at his grandfather’s department store. It’s something he oddly enjoys. This year is twice the fun when he’s paired with a mouthwatering elf. When Will finds Austin stranded in the parking lot, he’s more than willing to help. A ride turns into an amazing night together. The night turns into a weekend that changes both their lives forever. Not necessarily for the good.

It’ll take more than a good time in bed to fix Austin’s life. For the first time, Will might have to put someone else first.

This is a short and steamy story, featuring a character from Charity Parkerson’s Low Blow series. It was written to be a complete standalone, separate from the series.

This was a very good read. From the description of the book I thought there might have been a different twist to it then there was, so I was pleasantly surprised by the twist when it came and I was wrong. That is a good thing because that shows that this book was an unpredictable read. Charity Parkerson did a great job on the this book. It is a short story but I was totally caught up in it the whole way through.

Austin loves his job at Masters high-end department store. He worked the make up counter for six years now. When Master’s places a sign up sheet for santa’s Helper for Christmas Wve, Austin signed up without a second thought. Because of working, he was able to get out of going to his families to celebrate Christmas. So this was a win for him.

What made it even better is the Santa is one hot Santa. Though Austin would never get the courage to ever let the Santa know he thought so. When the night was over, Santa had taken off and Austin thought that was for the best considering he did not know who he was, mich less if he is gay or not.

When Austin gets to his car he is in for a surprise. His car won’t start and none otter then the man that played Santa is the one who came to his rescue. So when it turns out to be Will Masters, Austin is kind of floored. Will is the owners grandson and Will has made it very clear that he wants Austin. At least for a short time anyway.

What will happen when their time is up? Will Austin and Will decide to continue seeing one another? Or is this just a one night stand with consequences?

I really enjoyed this book. I look forward to the next book from Charity Parkerson to come out if it is half as good as this book.

Advanced Review Copy

Galley copy of An Alpha For Christmas provided by Punk and 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.
