Jackson has loved Vegas since God created Man—literally. As demonic incubi hailing from the Seventh Circle of Hell, Jackson and Vegas have never been anything more than roommates. Now living among humans, they run Eaven, a TripAdvisor-recommended detour-worthy diner famous for its devilishly decadent pies. Business is dead on the holidays, and Jackson will gleefully stab himself with a spatula if he has to clean spotless pots and pans one more time.
For fun—or torture—Vegas makes him a bet that should Jackson win, they take a much-needed vacation. Should he lose, he’s doomed to clean out grease traps for all eternity. When the challenge is to fall in love with other people by Christmas, it proves Vegas isn’t the least bit interested. But when they find an abandoned baby in the trash, she could be the Christmas miracle to warm Jackson’s cynical heart.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package “Sleigh Ride”.
This was definitely a different kind of Christmas story. Demonic Incubi falling in love with an abandoned baby and working in a placed called (H)Eaven. It was fun and full of great ideas and loving/snarky characters. I enjoyed the build up between Jackson and Vegas and I really liked the outcome.
My only issue is that this story seemed a bit hard to grasp. The fast paced nature was actually a bit rushed and sometimes I felt like I was missing pieces.
But overall, this story was creative and fun. Even though it was not a traditional Christmas tale, it left me with a warm and fuzzy feeling full of Christmas joy.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
