Damn it, a man had his pride and a caribou a certain majestic presence, all of which could wind up ruined if he abased himself to play a simple-minded reindeer in the town’s Christmas parade.
No way was he wearing damned tinsel in his antlers.
Like hell was he sporting a red nose and pulling a sleigh.
But he changes his mind when he meets the woman in charge of the event.
Single mom, Crystal, is doing her best to offer her daughter the best Christmas ever. It’s their first in Kodiak Point, and she’s not about to let some vain jerk ruin it for her little girl.
If playing dirty is what it takes…then bring on the Christmas games. As Crystal and Kyle butt heads—and lips—they discover more than goodwill this holiday season. They’re gifted with a second chance at love.
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
So cute! 4 Stars!!!!
“Caribou’s Gift” Kodiak Point Book 3.5 is by author Eve Langlais, an author I recently discovered. I love her books so far and this series is great. Full of suspense, mystery, and romance with hard and emotionally bruised heroes. However this book is lighter. A sweet Christmas story that gives a break to the drama going on in Kodiak Point.
Told in dual POV’s
So as I was saying…in “Caribou’s Gift” we revisit friends from the previous books; this one is lighthearted, humorous, romantic and a fun, sweet read. For the one hundred pages that is this cute story, we have none of the continuing drama that has been seen in prior books of the series. No explicit danger or drama. I will say there is a tiny bit of suspense toward the end, just enough to add to the story in an emotional way.
This sweet Christmas story features Kyle, a caribou shifter, and the woman he wants to make his. Crystal is a cougar shifter. To add even more sweetness to this book is Crystal’s precious little daughter, Gigi.
As soon as Kyle and Crystal meet, sparks fly. Not all good either. Crystal is in charge of the town’s Christmas parade and when Kyle refuses to play “Rudolph” red nose and all, Crystal is not happy. Of course Kyle tries to get back in her good graces except he still refuses to wear a red nose and have his antlers decorated. What follows is fun and romance and one determined Caribou to have his cougar. But not only does Kyle want Crystal, he realizes he wants Gigi too. Nothing is going to stop this sexy shifter from having his family!
Even though this was a short, quick read, I loved it. Eve’s characters are well developed for a novella. I smiled, I teared up and I fell in love with little Gigi along the way. What’s not to love? She was adorable. This was a great addition to the Kodiak Point Series even though it didn’t have all the danger and suspense.
