It never occurred to Meghan Casey that she would be the key to helping four wolf shifters save Christmas.

Santa is missing, and reporter Meghan Casey heads to the North Pole to investigate the big guy’s disappearance.

When she reaches the winter wonderland, she meets four strapping members of Santa’s special guard. 
And while they don’t think they need her assistance, Meghan insists on joining the search for their boss.

Each of the four men tempts her in his own way, but after being cheated on by her former fiancé, Meghan isn’t ready to open her heart.

When Meghan is kidnapped, her men will do anything to get her back,
and they just might save Christmas in the process.

Review:

3 Stars

The outline for a great book is here but it needs a little more content.

To be such a short story, I saw a lot of potential with this story, but the more that I’m thinking about some of the plot lines, things could have been fixed or even expanded on to bring about a better story.

There were also some grammatical errors in the book where words were missing and at first I thought it might have been me because I have a habit of skimming, but I stopped and read sentences several times and indeed words were missing from sentences.

Let’s start with Meghan. I liked her character because even though she knew that traveling to the North Pole could be a complete waste of time or even if she was able to find something, there was no guarantee from her boss that her story would be published, but she went and traveled anyway because of her hunch that there was something wrong with Santa.

Meghan has a very big heart which is obvious as she travels at least a hours and miles away from her small home town to investigate why Santa is missing after many years of him visiting shortly after thanksgiving. She’s brave and courageous, yet she guards her heart in fear of being hurt again.

I actually liked all of the guys. They have a variety of personalities that work well for their group. Colton and Neal are the fun, playful ones while Archer is the “boss” of the group who makes a lot of the decisions while Griff is the quite one who is skeptical and always on alert.

The guys’ have a variety of backgrounds but met each other in the military where they were turned into werewolves and recruited to help protect Christmas.

They take they job very seriously, and some of them are hesitant to let Meghan help find Santa when she arrives, but after being snowed in Santa’s cabin, all of their walls are broken and they realize how special she is to all of them.

They are surprisingly all opened to the idea of sharing Meghan when it’s obvious that she is their mate and even more so when they find out that she has feelings for all of them, although it takes a little more time for Meghan to wrap her head around the idea that these handsome, amazing guys could all have feelings for her.

They jump head first, but Meghan knows that in the end, she’ll have to go back home.

After some drama, Meghan has to decide if she’s willing to risk her heart and stay with them or return to her life before.

One of my biggest problems I have with the story is how the guys’ didn’t think to check in on Santa or notice that he was missing sooner because they really do take their job serious and are well trained based on what happens during part of the story, yet they let Santa be taken.

I think the progression of the relationship between Meghan and the guys developed fairly well, but the majority of the book was spent with them in Santa’s cabin and even though they had a HEA we don’t really get to see them past that part of their relationship and how it functions in the “real world” so to speak after all of the adrenaline dies down.

I mean, I understand that this is a relativity short book, but given that this is a romance book, I would have liked to see them get settled in their relationship.

Happy reading until next time,
