HIS FAIRY GODFATHER RELEASE DAY REVIEW!!


HELLO EVERYONE! I AM SO EXCITED TO BRING YOU MY RELEASE DAY REVIEW OF HIS FAIRY GODFATHER BY CATE ASHWOOD AND NICO JAYE! I LOVE BOTH THESE AUTHORS AND THEM WRITING A BOOK TOGETHER IS AWESOME! BELOW IS MY REVIEW, THE LINK AND EVEN AN EXCERPT! LET'S GET TO IT!!



THIS QUOTE IS SO PERFECT FOR EDWIN IT ISN'T FUNNY! :p HERE IS MY REVIEW!!

His Fairy Godfather
Cate Ashwood and Nico Jaye
reviewed by: Becky

Since the death of his father, Trick Grigsby has fought to keep his head above water. Following in his father’s footsteps as a talented architect, he hopes to work his way up at the firm. Unfortunately, the company’s new owner barely resembles the man who was once Trick’s father’s best friend. Trick’s days are filled with drudgery and cruel remarks from the man who was supposed to be his mentor—along with his two sons, whose only jobs seem to be making Trick’s life miserable.
But all that is about to change.
Edwin Goodmaker struggled through his fairy godparent curriculum, but his mother—the reigning Fairy Queen—has a simple solution: Edwin will go to New York City and get some practical experience. When he meets Trick, Edwin knows he’s found a worthy charge, and he’s sure he can help Trick achieve all of his heart’s desires. Edwin falls for Trick, but with everything standing in their way, a fairy-tale ending might remain nothing more than a dream.


Oh my Fairy did I love this story! Edwin climbed into my heart right off the bat and there he stayed! Cate and Nico are brilliant in their own right, but together they are unstoppable!! 

Trick is working at the company his father helped build, and he will stay there until he works his way up and gets the recognition his work deserves. His fathers former partner and now sole owner of the firm has other plans, like giving himself and his no good sons credit for Trick's hard work. Will Trick see the need to leave, or will he need a little help?

Edwin is getting hands on experience to help get him through his Fairy Godparent Lessons, when he meets Trick, he wants to help him all he can, but eventually he wants more than that. How will this work? Edwin must go back sooner than later and he may never see Trick again! 

You have to read this book friends! Edwin will delight you and Trick will pull at your heartstrings for sure! Thanks Cate and Nico, I can only hope there will be many more books from you two to come!

WELL I JUST HAD TO DO THE 'FAIRY FLOSS' RATING! GRAB THE BOOK BELOW AND SEE WHAT I MEAN!!


NOW FOR AN EXCERPT:

Prologue

“PATRICK!”
The booming voice reverberated down the curved staircase, shaking the windows that lined all four walls of the office.
Trick cringed. It wasn’t getting yelled at that he objected to. That he was used to. James Redden, his boss, believed nicknames were “lowbrow and an affront to the woman who named you.”
He hated it.
Mr. Redden seemed to have an aversion to many things; for instance, the color yellow, decaf coffee, phone calls before 10 a.m., and the intercom, the telephone, and e-mail in general. When he wanted Trick’s attention, he preferred to bellow. Personally, Trick believed Mr. Redden loved the sound of his own voice roaring through the office. He was the type of man who got a kick out of pulling everyone’s attention away from what they were doing and forcing them to focus on him.
Trick stood in the doorway to Redden’s office and waited as his boss ignored him completely. It was always this way. His voice always stressed an urgency, but when Trick arrived, he was made to wait at least five minutes, standing with his dick in his hand—so to speak—waiting for Redden to summon the energy to deal with him.
Redden’s office space was grandiose, taking up most of the upper floor, his giant desk standing menacingly in the center of the room. For a man as gifted in design as he was, he certainly had no concept of warmth or comfort. Stark colors and harsh lines created a feeling of unease in Trick that hadn’t settled even after years of running at his boss’s beck and call.
“Have you finished typing up the proposal for Mrs. Bradley?” Redden demanded after an ample period of time had lapsed.
“Proposal, sir?”
He huffed a sigh and rolled his eyes. “Yes, Patrick. The proposal. I e-mailed you the details. You were to type it up to send out to her. She wanted it by four.”
Trick glanced at the oversized clock that hung to the left of Redden’s desk. It was 3:52.
“I haven’t received an e-mail, sir.”
“Goddammit, Patrick, you incompetent twat. If you can’t do your fucking job, I will replace you with someone who can.”
“Yes, sir,” he said, biting his tongue against telling Redden exactly what he could do with the job. He and Trick both knew he hadn’t e-mailed the details. Trick was meticulous about staying on top of his work. If there had been an e-mail, he would have seen it, and he would have taken care of it.
“I’ll resend it now. Make sure you have it to the client by four. There are plenty of guys smarter than you who would love to work in your place. Don’t give me a reason to fire you.”
“Yes, sir,” Trick said again with a curt nod. He waited to be dismissed, which came with a flippant wave of Redden’s hand, before Trick turned and hurried back down the stairs to his desk.
He pulled up the program and got to work. As much as he hated his boss, Mrs. Bradley was a lovely woman. They’d spoken several times on the phone, and he knew the house she was building in the Hamptons was intended as a summer home for her grandchildren. She wanted it to be perfect, and Trick wanted it to be perfect for her.
“Fucked up again, didn’t you, Pat?” The name he hated more than Patrick dripped off Jasper’s tongue. Trick scowled up at Jasper’s slicked-back hair, the style reminiscent of a greasy used-car salesman.
Once again Trick bit his tongue. It was becoming more and more difficult not to lose his shit in the office. Jasper thought because he was the boss’s son, he could get away with whatever he wanted.
Scratch that. He could get away with whatever he wanted, and most days, he just wanted to be a dick. It was as though it was coded in his family’s DNA. Daddy dearest and his twin boys, Jasper and Leif, made up Redden and Sons, and in addition to designing beautiful homes, they preyed on Trick like lions singling out the wounded baby zebra.
“Excuse me, Jasper, I just need to finish—”
Jasper cut him off. “Not really sure why my dad keeps you around. Seems like you can’t do anything right.”
Trick ignored him and turned his attention back to the computer screen.
“Hey. Dipshit. I’m talking to you,” Jasper said, sliding a piece of paper in front of Trick’s screen, blocking his view.
Trick looked up at him, unimpressed. “What can I do for you, Jasper? Do you need something? Because your dad has asked me to—”
He interrupted once more. “I’m hungry.”
He sounded like a toddler.
“All right. Let me finish this up, and I’ll get you something to eat. What would you like?”
“A cheesesteak from Al’s. With extra cheese.”
Trick eyed his shiny forehead, then his belly, complete with the buttons close to bursting off his polyester-blend shirt. “You got it,” he said, grinning.


“EDWIN!”
Edwin looked up and smiled. Estella Goodmaker, Paravale’s reigning Fairy Queen, did not return the smile.
Estella Goodmaker—also known as his boss.
“Mother!”
Also known as his mother.
“Edwin,” she repeated, the twinkly glow of her tiara at odds with her stern look. “What’s this I hear about your struggles in Advanced Summoning?”
The smile slid off Edwin’s face. When his mother had called him to her office, he had hoped it would be for anything other than his current difficulties with the complexities of the fairy godparent curriculum.
He bit his lip and looked down at his hands. Underneath his skin flowed the blood of Estella Goodmaker, Erich Goodmaker, and generations of influential fairies throughout the history of Paravale. Somehow, some way, he should have the power to be an incredible fairy godfather, but he couldn’t even pass the Advanced Summoning certification.
“Edwin?” Estella’s voice had softened, and when he looked up, a crease had formed between her brows. She looked at him with concern.
Sighing, Edwin shrugged. “Mother, I… I’m trying, but I just cannot seem to grasp it.”
With a cluck of her tongue, Estella gestured with one hand. “What’s there to grasp? The vault is vast and well stocked. When one needs something from it, one simply summons it.”
Edwin wrinkled his brow in frustration. “It’s hard to concentrate on just one thing at a time, Mother—especially when there are so many other things to think about! Like the metallurgy competition or the combining of fairy dust with wish potion or the most recent foal to be born in the stables. My mind has a hard time focusing with so much going on.”
Estella tilted her head and gave him a thoughtful look. “I can see how being in Paravale can be distracting.”
“Yes, exac—wait, what?”
“Edwin, you’ve been working on your certifications for the fairy godparent position for years. You have top marks in your classes focusing on theory, history, and knowledge,” she said with a hint of pride. “Your practical skills, though….”
Edwin’s face twisted in a grimace. His shortcomings were practically an embarrassment at this point. Twenty-five years old and still unable to receive two of the five necessary certifications. Portalysis and Advanced Summoning were useful in the arsenal of ways of Paravale. Most fairy godparents had already gone into their training practicum by now. Definitely all Goodmakers had been there by that point.
“I try, and I practice, but….” Edwin gave a helpless shrug.
“I know you practice, but classroom practicing can only serve its purpose to a limited extent.” Estella slid something across the surface of her prismatic crystal desk. “Here, these are for you.”
“What’s this?” Edwin reached for the small folder. After opening it, he saw a printout of white paper, a metal key, and several smaller green papers he recognized from one of his classes—Humanology—as currency in some parts of the mortal realm. Squinting at the white paper, he read “One Way” at the top. He gave his mother a curious look. “I don’t understand.”
“I’ve spoken with your instructors, and I’ve decided your training will be best served in the mortal realm.”
Edwin’s brows shot up. The mortal realm? But… “I haven’t yet received my certifications.”
“Yes, that’s true.” Estella nodded. “Which is why you’ll be going there with your current set of skills and learning in the realm of mortals. It’s my belief your presence among them should give you a better understanding of their needs and what is expected of a fairy godparent. It’s important you understand not just the ways of fairy godparents, but also the ways of the mortals whom you are seeking to help.”
Glancing down at the gray folder, Edwin ran his hand over the smooth surface. This was the first time he’d heard of such an accommodation occurring. Then again, perhaps it had occurred before, and he’d never been privy to the information.
This opportunity, though, was not to be wasted.
He pulled out the white paper and smiled up at Estella. “I look forward to it, Mother. I’m sure there will be much I can experience in—” Edwin glanced down and read the first line. Kansas City to New York City. “—New York City.”
He recognized the name from Humanology, but… “New York City?” Edwin looked at his mother and tilted his head. “Is there a York City?”
With a soft chuckle, Estella shook her head fondly. “Oh, Edwin. You have so much to learn.”

COUNTDOWN TO THE HOLIDAYS DAY 27: OF MOONING SANTAS AND PENIS LIGHTS REVIEW!!


HEY THERE EVERYONE! IT'S DAY 27 OF OUR COUNTDOWN TO THE HOLIDAYS BOOK REVIEW EVENT AND MY GIRL JESS KENNEDY HAS HER REVIEW OF A BOOK FROM THE DREAMSPINNER 2016 ADVENT CALENDAR, "BAH HUMBUG"! OF MOONING SANTAS AND PENIS LIGHTS BY THIANNA DURSTON IS AS DELIGHTFUL AS THE TITLE, TRUST ME! BELOW IS JESS'S REVIEW, THE LINK, AND EVEN AN EXCERPT! 




JOHN WOULD SAY THIS TO KADEN FOR SURE! HERE IS JESS'S REVIEW: 

Of Mooning Santas and Penis Lights
by: Thianna Durston
"Bah Humbug" Advent Calendar Book
reviewed by: Jessica Kennedy

Former US Marine John Ving hates everything about holiday displays: they’re tacky, they waste energy, and they’re an eyesore. So what does his new neighbor do? He sets up the holiday spectacle from hell, and he doesn’t seem to care which holiday—he has a menorah, a baby Jesus, a Santa, and everything in between. Not to mention it’s swathed in enough lights his house is probably visible from space. 
High-school teacher Kaden Melling loves the holidays, and huge light displays on his lawn make his heart glow. He’d love to share some cheer—and maybe some kinky fun—with his smoking hot neighbor John. Odd things start to happen to his displays, but just as he begins to think life is going his way, with the holidays and with John, a Grinch destroys everything. 
It’s gonna take the display-hating John to set things right—and what he has planned might blow Kaden’s mind.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2016 Advent Calendar "Bah Humbug."



Oh my god, the title alone is fantastically hilarious!! I couldn't pass this short, sweet and totally spicy Christmas story up.

 John doesn't like to decorate for Christmas thanks to his ex, so when his new neighbor Kaden moves in and talks the rest of the neighborhood into decorating, he's irritated to say the least. He doesn't want to be attracted to the happy go lucky Christmas elf next door, but he just can't resist Kaden. 

Between Kaden's happiness and his penchant for a kinky twelve days of Christmas, things are looking up for John!! You have to read this book!! It's Hilarious and sexy all rolled into one.


                                               the 5 blow up Santa rating :P

I'M WITH JESS, THIS IS A FANTASTICALLY FUNNY HOLIDAY STORY YOU JUST CAN'T MISS! I LOVE THIS AUTHOR AND SHE HAS ANOTHER HIT WITH THIS ONE! GREAT REVIEW JESS, AND BELOW IS THE BUY LINK SO YOU GUYS CAN READ IT AND LOVE IT AS MUCH AS WE DO!!

DREAMSPINNER LINK

NOW FOR AN EXCERPT!! :)

“SO, UNCLE John,” Mark said in a disturbingly gleeful voice, “your street seems a bit brighter this season.”
John barely stopped himself from pushing the boy off his chair. Being in middle school made the kid awful cheeky. Instead, he settled an uncle-glare on him. Which was pitiful.
Mark snickered and looked back at his cards.
This was what John got for spending the evening away from the monstrosity known as his neighborhood. Up until this year, it had been simple. Nobody waved their religious or mystical hats at the world in some strange light spectacular. Until Kaden Melling moved in. Even the thought of the annoying elf living next door had an effect, and not specifically one he planned on.
The man annoyed the ever-living hell out of him. And was drop-dead cute to boot. At the housing board meeting in September, when holiday decorations were brought up, John had been prepared to stomp them down just like he did every year. The last thing he wanted was for strangers to drive down their streets oohing and ahhing at the horrendous light displays that were more likely to blow the grid and their power for days. Unfortunately that was the first day he met Kaden. He was in his midthirties, with a mess of reddish-blond hair on top of his head, bright blue eyes, and the sweetest smile on the planet. Not to mention a cock that showed through his jeans. Damn, if that thing was real…. To avoid drooling at the man, John didn’t say a word. Imagine his surprise when he found out later that the entire housing board voted to make it an extravaganza.
And now he had to deal with the vast amount of lightage going on.
It was the fifth of December and he had, so far, received three messages from the board noting that he hadn’t put up any holiday decorations yet. As there was no way to send back his honest reaction in the form of his middle finger, he had ignored them. Damned Kaden Melling.

“Go fish,” he said.

COUNTDOWN TO THE HOLIDAYS DAY 26: THE STOCKINGS WERE HUNG REVIEW!!


HELLO  THERE FRIENDS, IT IS DAY 26 OF OUR COUNTDOWN TO THE HOLIDAYS BOOK REVIEW EVENT AND MY GIRL AMY REVIEWED THE STOCKINGS WERE HUNG BY CASSIE SWEET! THIS BOOK IS PART OF DREAMSPINNERS 2016 ADVENT CALENDAR BAH HUMBUG, SO LOOK BELOW FOR AMY'S REVIEW, THE LINK, AND EVEN AN EXCERPT!! LET'S HAVE A LOOK!!



THIS QUOTE IS SO TRUE AND PERFECT FOR THIS STORY! HERE IS AMY'S REVIEW!

The Stockings Were Hung
by: Cassie Sweet
"Bah Humbug" Dreamspinner Advent Calendar 2016
reviewed by: Amy

Hill hates Christmas. 
The shoppers. The cheer. The drama. All of it. 
Each holiday season is a painful reminder that seven years before, his lover, Drew, walked out of his life and moved across the country, leaving Hill like a cup of rotten eggnog. Now Drew is back and wants Hill to put a little jingle in his bells. Well, not this Scrooge. 
Drew admits he moved to get away from Hill—but not for the reasons Drew gave him all those years ago. Some of his best memories are of Christmases he celebrated with Hill, and he wants nothing more than to spend a little holly jolly with the only man he’s ever loved. However, getting Hill to agree to a reunion is going to take a Christmas miracle. 
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2016 Advent Calendar "Bah Humbug."


First I'll start out by saying I really loved this book, but it was way too short, I want more so much more!!!   It's a great story!! 

Drew moved 3000 miles away from Hill to "find himself", to grow up but never explained to Hill.  They were living together, loved each other or so Hill thought until Drew just up and left.   For seven years Hill has held onto his hurt and pain, a shattered heart that has ruined Christmas for him.   Drew being just as miserable missing Hill but couldn't make himself call Hill in all that time.  Drew has now moved back. 

Drew wants Hill back, wants to love him and be with him. Can he convince Hill he won't leave again?   Well one way to get Hill alone is take him to the family cabin for Christmas and try to bring back the good memories.   But a snowstorm that comes earlier than predicted leads them stranded.   

I really did love these guys, what a great couple!!  I was cheering them the whole way.   Cassie Sweet did a great job, now I really hope she writes more of Drew and Hill!!  



I give this book 5 "Happy New Years" because that is a time to start over, move forward and maybe just maybe find love again! 

"The end of the year was the perfect time to say good-bye to the past and embrace new beginnings."


THANKS AMY: GREAT REVIEW!! I LOVED THIS BOOK ALSO, BELOW IS THE BUY LINK SO YOU GUYS CAN READ IT AND LOVE IT TOO!!


HERE IS AN EXCERPT: 

IT BEGINS….
Hill pushed his way out of the store as throngs of rabid shoppers tried to shove their way inside. God, it was worse than spawning season on the river. Didn’t anyone believe in the power of online shopping and UPS delivery? Each heartbeat brought his blood pressure closer to the stroke range.
After an elbow to his kidney by some little old lady and a hit to his shin with her walker, he was outside. He took a big gulp of crisp winter air and held it for a count of ten. Slowly, he let his breath out and tried to regain some sense of zen, but it had blown out with his breath. Retrieving a calm center was pointless at ground zero of the holiday Armageddon.
Why did he even bother? He didn’t even like Christmas and hadn’t for some time. The holiday had become an excuse for his family to get together and see which one could out-drama the others. Forget hanging with his friends—save Jen. Most of the others went away for winter vacations, and he wasn’t about to ask to tag along to visit someone else’s personal family hell.
He stepped off the curb and into a puddle, submerging his suede shoes in six inches of icy water.
“Damn.”
At some point the day got so awful it required a good hearty laugh, because no matter what else happened, it wasn’t going to get any better. No, he’d pretty much been swallowed by the abyss of Christmas cheer.
Each step to his car was made with an odd squish-creak from his right foot. It sounded like he needed a good dose of WD-40 on his shoe. The sound was so ridiculous he laughed as he opened his door and got in his car. He started the engine, then set about fastening his seat belt. Hair on the back of his neck tingled. He glanced up and slammed into a pair of the most gorgeous crystal-blue eyes he’d ever seen staring at him from the car parked next to him. The rest of the package wasn’t bad either.
Memories of another pair of blue eyes hit him square in the chest.

I LOVE THIS QUOTE! HERE IS JESS'S REVIEW: 


Matthew's Present
Dreamspinner "Bah Humbug" 2016 Advent Calendar
by: Sarah Hadley Brook
reviewed by: Jessica Kennedy

Matthew Blick is almost thirty years old, and he hates the thought of another holiday alone. He has become a bit of a wet blanket when Christmas rolls around every year. So much so that even his five-year-old niece, Hannah, knows something needs to change. She asks the department store Santa to bring her uncle a man to love, and when Santa sees her uncle, he formulates a plan to set that possibility in motion. 
Santa shows up at Matthew’s house and at first Matthew can’t place him, but then the memories of his first kiss flood his mind and he is shocked to find that Santa is the man he has carried a torch for since high school. Will this twist of fate help Matthew change his view on the holidays? Only a kiss can tell. 
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2016 Advent Calendar "Bah Humbug."


Super sweet and absolutely adorable Christmas short!! When he's coerced into braving the lines in the mall for his niece Hannah to see Santa, Matthew had no idea he would be getting his Christmas gift in the form of a beautiful blonde man in a Santa suit. 

Tyler and Matthew had one brief but memorable and life changing kiss in high school. it seems some Christmas magic and little girl wishes have brought them right where they need to be. Very enjoyable Christmas story!

                                                   the 5 red bow rating :)

I CAN'T WAIT TO READ THIS STORY NOW, THANKS JESS! LOOK BELOW FOR THE DREAMSPINNER LINK GUYS: 


NOW FOR AN EXCERPT!! :)

“THERE HE is, Uncle Matthew,” his niece announced quietly, her excitement tempered with the respect all children have for Santa. Eagerly, she nudged him and pointed ahead, barely able to contain her enthusiasm. She was practically bouncing up and down in her pink-and-white snow boots as a grin spread across her delicate face.

Finally, he thought, fighting another yawn. They had been standing in line for at least an hour. He shifted her pink coat onto his other arm and glanced over at Santa’s Workshop, immensely pleased that someone in a Santa suit was making his way over to the green velvet throne. The oversized plush chair was adorned with hideous gold accents and something that he could only assume from this far back was supposed to be holly berries. Larger-than-life presents and toys—was that supposed to be a spinning top?—surrounded the throne, and the ground was covered in lots of fluffy white faux snow.

Several more people dressed in matching elf costumes scurried around as they prepared to open the gate to the dozens of people waiting their turn. He looked down the line of frustrated parents as he tried to gauge how much longer he would be stuck in this nightmare, taking some personal satisfaction at the defeated expressions many of the adults wore. If he had to be stuck here, he was glad there were others suffering along with him. What kind of monster had created this special kind of hell that pulled children in through the lure of sitting on Santa’s lap, only to spit them back out tired, angry, and hungry?

While standing in place for the past hour, he had witnessed the process several times over as more than one ran from the line, a shrieking mother or father usually close on their heels. Most of those parents didn’t show back up, choosing to forgo the line and head home instead. Lucky bastards, he thought.

He scanned the department store again. Large, bulky wreaths decorated with red and gold bows hung everywhere, while thick garlands made of artificial greenery draped across signs, countertops, doors, and railings. Massive ornaments in every shape and color hung from the ceiling throughout the entire store. There was just no way to escape the holiday.

NOW I KNOW I CAN'T WAIT TO READ THIS ONE! THANKS FOR A GREAT REVIEW AS ALWAYS JESS, AND THANK YOU FRIENDS FOR JOINING US FOR DAY 25 OF OUR COUNTDOWN TO THE HOLIDAYS, SEE YOU TOMORROW!!

Trust In His Mate
Mystic Canada 1
by: Cree Storm
reviewed by: Becky

There are traitors within the United Council and it is up to MYSTIC Canada to find out who they are and take them down. If not, all MYSTIC agents around the world could die, leaving the community sector at the mercy of not only the Nefarious but the Councilmen, as well.
Detective Mark Franklin is one of the few born without any gifts. But everyone knows he is the only man that can infiltrate the Council and find out who is behind the attacks on their sister agency.
However, when Xavior makes a comment about a non-gifted man being unable to do the job, Mark becomes infuriated and says he will not mate with a man that has no faith or belief in him.
Can Xavior fix his blunder and earn Mark’s trust back, or will his mate walk into a possible death trap, alone, just to prove a point—and die in the process?


 I have been so excited for the start to the Canada Chapter of the Mystic series and boy did this book live up to all my expectations and more! Cree Storm brilliantly transitions the Mystic series to a new location while still including our faves in the mix! 

I have loved Xavier and Mark since I met them in the original Mystic series and I was so happy to read their story! Mark knows who his mate is, but it seems like Xavier doesn't want him and thinks he is weak, can Mark believe that his mate sees him as an equal? Just when it looks like it, Xavier puts his foot in his mouth big time, will it cost him dearly? 

In addition to their mating problems the Mystic family has a much bigger problem to deal with, they are being targeted, can they win against this powerful enemy? There are so many factors that make up this brilliant story and I can't wait for you to read it! Thanks Cree, for a book 1 in this spin off that lived up to my expectations and then some!

Karl Kringle hates the modern-day Christmas. He was born to be Krampus, but the Holiday Council refuses to let him help his brother Nick—aka Santa Claus—with the Naughty List until he finds his holiday spirit. To meet that challenge, he’s turned human and dumped in a strange apartment.

Lewis Weatherby loves the holidays and always has. Not only do his parents own a pumpkin patch and tree farm, he’s also inherited a Christmas-themed shop. All he wants from Santa is the man of his dreams, and the Big Guy might’ve just delivered. Lewis’s new neighbor Karl is gorgeous, sweet, and has a fantastic sense of humor—if his jokes about being Krampus are any indication.

Soon getting home is less important to Karl than what will happen when Lewis inevitably realizes the truth behind his jokes. He’s finally starting to understand the real joy of the season—now he just has to figure out how to hold on to it.

Review:
Krampus, otherwise known as Karl, has grown to hate Christmas due to the extra work and strain the Council continues to dump on his brother, Nick’s, shoulders.  And since they won’t let him help, he has grown more and more disgusted with the whole holiday.  In an effort to help Karl find his love of Christmas again, his brother in law Noel, sends him to California for a few months for some R&R, and maybe a chance of love as well.
Lewis can’t believe when the really big, really hot new neighbor moves in.  He’s so tired of the dating game and all of the dud dates he’s had recently, he’s ready to just call it quits on men.  He’d rather work with his family at the pumpkin and Christmas tree farm and run his Christmas store and leave the rest alone, but Karl makes him rethink his feelings on men, at least one man.
This story was cute, funny, sweet, snarky…. All of the feels I want in a Christmas story.  I enjoyed the foundation we received through the story on where the holiday ‘superheroes’ originated and developed.  There were some tears, ok maybe a few more than just some, but they were both sad and happy, with some joyful ones by the end.  The cast of characters in this story were very well done, and I still want to just grab Lizzie, er El now, Sam and Barb up and hug them tight, and hang out with Lewis, Karl, Jerry and Rimble.
This is definitely one of my favorite Christmas shorts.  I can’t wait to read more by Andi Van!       
Rating:
The 5 Krampus Ornament Rating, complete with the wrong hooves and crazy tongue.. hang on your tree or your horns….

HAHA GRACE IS SO ON POINT WITH THIS REVIEW, THIS BOOK IS AMAZING, AND I HAVE READ ANDI VAN AND THIS IS MORE OF THE SAME BRILLIANCE FROM THIS AUTHOR! HERE IS THE LINK SO YOU CAN ENJOY KRAMPUS FOR YOURSELF!
Excerpt:
“THAT’S SUCH bullshit,” Karl snarled to his brother as they stomped out of the council’s meeting room. “The same old fucking excuses every single year.” His hooves crashed against the marble floor with a resounding boom, and the dwarfs who were escorting them had to dodge out of the way before they become a gooey mess under the force of Karl’s steps. They glared at him, but he returned the glare with one of his own, and the dwarfs paled. It was something about the horns, he guessed. Or maybe the pointy teeth. Or just the fact that he was three times their height and could turn them into tomato paste on the hard floor.
“It’s not a big deal,” Nicholas said. “I’ve done this for how many centuries?”
Karl came to a screeching halt and turned his glare to his brother. “That’s not the point,” he rumbled, poking his brother in the chest, though he was careful to do it gently, despite his anger. “You shouldn’t be doing it at all. Hell, it works perfectly for us in the few parts of Europe they let me assist with. Why shouldn’t Krampus be able to help out jolly old Saint Nicholas in the United States too?”
Nicholas let out a mournful sigh, shook his head, and turned the full force of his disappointed gaze on his brother. Karl tried not to wince, but it was hard. He hated disappointing Nick.
“You know why,” his brother said. “You hate Christmas. You need to find your holiday spirit before they’ll ever let you help me.”
“Why are they even on the council instead of you?” Karl asked, his voice growing in volume in the hope that the puffed-up idiots in the other room would hear him. “They’ve left you all the damn heavy work. With every year you’re the one with more and more responsibilities. That damn rabbit doesn’t have to judge good or bad. He just drops off eggs and candy and hops away, no matter what kind of brats are on his list. Halloween’s become a night to cause trouble and get hyped up on sugar instead of a time to celebrate the thinning of the veil. But you? Oh no, you get to judge every single child who celebrates Christmas before going out of your way to make them happy. And even when you do, half the time those ungrateful kids whine about how you didn’t give them a damn pony. At least where I get to help you, the kids are afraid if they aren’t good, I’ll take their presents away.”
Nicholas rubbed his face and then dropped his hand to his side. “We’ve been over this,” he said softly. “You’ll get your chance.”
“It’s not about me, Nick,” Karl protested, his voice booming with his anger.
“I’m going home,” his brother said. “We’re not having this discussion again.”
“Nick,” Karl growled, but he stopped when Nicholas looked at him through narrowed eyes. “Fine,” he grumbled. “Tell that diva you married that I said hello.”
Karl was pleased to see Nick’s expression soften, and his brother nodded. “I will. I’ll call you later.”

Karl nodded and waited until his brother and his escorts were out of earshot and then turned around to look at the dwarfs who were still waiting to kick him out. He gave them a toothy grin, leaned down, and roared so loudly that half of them toppled over. The other half ran for it, and there was an odor that followed them out that suggested at least one of them had soiled themself. With a snicker Karl spun around and stomped toward the exit.
