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.
Forced proximity + Daddy Kink + Age Gap + Keira Andrews = Holiday Gold.
Santa Daddy was a great novella to get lost into- I read it one sitting. It was cute and feel good.
-Great characters. Nick is older and gruff. Hunter is younger and a tad insecure, he’s not afraid of going after what he wants.
-Hurt/comfort/healing lite. The story isn’t ansgty, but Nick has lost someone in the past.
-There’s a dog side character. Dogs always earn extra points in my eyes.
-As I mentioned earlier – forced proximity. Nothing turns up the heat like a snowstorm.
-Chemistry is palpable.
-And the end was what I love on my holiday reads.
Santa Daddy is 130 pages of fluffy, naughty, holiday cheer. <3
