Rom is Dasher, the leader of Santa’s shape-shifting team of reindeer. He is the quintessential elf — smart, handsome, charming — and everyone in Santa’s Village wants him. Lon is no exception. He’s hopelessly in love with Rom, but how can he hope to get Rom’s attention? Even if he is now one of the reindeer handlers, he’s still just a plain, ordinary elf, and painfully shy to boot.

Then there’s Wod. As Dancer, he’s both Rom’s second in command and Rom’s best friend. He, too, is devilishly handsome but in a darker and — truth be told — slightly frightening way. At least, he makes Lon’s heart race and his tongue tie in knots.

When Wod unexpectedly offers to help Lon gain Rom’s attention, Lon is completely confused. To make matters worse, Wod is clear that he’d love to play with Lon himself.

Lon is used to the sexual freedom in Santa’s Village but he craves something more meaningful. He wants a real relationship. So what does he do? Keep pining for Rom or play Wod’s special brand of reindeer games?

My View:

Here I go again, waiting to write a review for days. However this time, it isn’t a bad thing. I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent reading Reindeer Games by Jet Mykles. Mykles isn’t an author I read often, and I don’t know why. Everytime I read a story from her; I enjoy it. I should remedy that in the future. I will start with the second and third books in the Reindeer Games series, I think.

As with many shifter stories, Reindeer Games is a light and fun read. There are no fated mates in this story. Free will abounds. I loved that world Mykles created. She has a unique spin on the North Pole mythos. I love that she turns gender roles on their ear. I love that the love interest is not necessarily who you expect.

I am not going to say a whole lot about the story itself as it is cute enough that I think you just need to read it for yourself. Merry Christmas. If this doesn’t put you in the mood, I am not sure what will.
