Cal Martin loathes Christmas music, especially the clichéd carols pumped through the mall speakers on endless loop. Even worse is the holiday-themed hell of Santa's Village that looms right in front of the sports store he manages. It's yet another hurdle for Cal as he tries to survive the world of retail during the soul-sucking holiday season… until he catches a glimpse of one of Santa's elves and becomes infatuated with the cheery, gorgeous guy dressed in candy-cane tights.
Of course, just walking up to the guy and asking him out isn't easy, and a botched attempt at matchmaking ends up turning a simple courtship into a mess for the gossip page. What can Cal do to overcome his social ineptitude, correct erroneous assumptions, and maybe have a merry little Christmas of his own?
This little gem is the perfect way to spend a couple of hours.
I'm a sucker for an adorable holiday story, and this totally fit the bill. I had a huge goofy grin on my face the entire time I was listening.
This is a simple, cute story about a ex-jock finding romance while working at the mall. The chemistry between the two MCs was "awww"-worthy, and Cal and his brother were winning combination. It was just the kind of story that wiggles into your heart and gives you those warm, fuzzy feelings.
And the narrator, newbie Ryan Kennard Burke, did an awesome job! He was age-appropriate sounding and did a fantastic job with the range of voices. Very nicely done.
All in all, you can't go wrong with this one. It is the perfect story for Christmas-time, or if you don't mind people looking at you like you're crazy because you are singing carols in September.
