Review by: Cactus
When handsome and distinguished Ian takes a job as a department store Santa, he hopes for a little extra money and some relief from the loneliness of the holiday season. What he finds is the gorgeous James, hired to be his elf, and despite their age difference they might just turn out to be perfect for each other.
When a sexy older Santa discovers his temporary help is a delicious young elf, Santa can’t help making an early Christmas wish.
Professor Ian takes a part time job as Santa to help fill the holiday time he normally spends alone and gets a surprise in flirty and outgoing James, a music student earning extra money as an elf. The temperature soars between these two as they flirt their way through the Christmas season.
James and Ian are two sexy and fun characters with a mutual chemistry that sparks immediately in the dressing room. Two ridiculous outfits make for an easy and quick comfort between the men and also a peek at two fit bodies. When they go for a drink after the first day of their new jobs, the flirting and teasing escalates until both men can’t wait to take advantage of the interest beneath the innuendo. Their scorching hot and sexy coupling sets the stage for their May/December relationship.
Despite the story length, both men are charming in their own way. Ian as an older man, uncertain and hesitant with a much younger new lover but wanting to spoil and take care of him out of love. James, while young and slightly immature, has a charismatic personality that delights and entertains. He clearly is enamored of the older man and cares about him regardless of age and differences in their lives.
When a story is this short, there is just enough to entice and this story gives that. With fun and witty dialogue and flirty, humorous antics these men give a romantic and entertaining glimpse at the beginning of their relationship. Neither character had much depth but that didn’t detract from the warmth of the story. If you’re looking for a short, holiday offering with a sexy Santa and his hot elf, this story definitely delivers.
