Synopsis from Goodreads:

“I want to be Santa,” Zack Forrest said, “In fact, I insist on it!”

Brandi was a career woman--with no time for Christmas! So when Zack Forrest appointed himself as children's Santa at her department store, Brandi was furious. Especially as his gorgeous looks were winning him plenty of female admirers!

But Brandi sensed Zack was hiding something, and she was determined to resist this enigmatic stranger. Romance wasn't top of her Christmas list...and Zack was the most unlikely Santa she'd ever met!

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

This was a unique, funny Christmas story that has a bit of something for everyone. There were elements that were shocking, funny, racy, and even tear jerking. Michaels kept me captivated throughout. I could barely put this story down. Her storytelling varies based on the action of the scene in question. It serves to heighten and highlight certain aspects of the story for the readers.

The characters are also quite well developed. I appreciate how you get to know them gradually as they get to know each other. It’s a very nice outlook for these characters. The supporting cast is also perfectly suited to the story at hand. They help the story out where necessary without taking the focus off of the main cast.

Overall this was a great Christmas tale that will get your laughter bubbling and your heart racing.
