Review: Caribou's Gift by Eve Langlais / @EveLanglais

 

Title: Kodiak Point #3.5: Caribou's Gift

Release Date: December 16, 2014
Genre: Contemporary, Paranormal, Romance
ARC Received From: Smexy Fab Four



PLEASE NOTE: This Christmas novella originally appeared in the anthology, A Kiss of Christmas Magic.

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.

Welcome to Kodiak Point, where the wildlife might wear clothes, but animal instinct rules the heart.

It's hard not to love a hero who lets his wild side out to protect the girls in his life, even if said hero is kind of an ass at the beginning. I mean, who says no to potentially making a kid smile? Um...

Kyle was determined not to play Rudolph, but Crystal was even more determined to have him do it. They clashed repeatedly over this while fighting an attraction that refused to go away. In the end, it proved a great thing because it led them to a happy ending they rightfully deserved.

And that kid who needed to smile after the hell they'd been through? That'd be Crystal's daughter. It was so precious how she latched onto Kyle. Whether it was because he was larger than life to her, or because he was incredibly sweet and tender toward her, she saw something in him that was worth holding onto. Her instincts proved right because he was there for her and Crystal when  they needed him the most.

This sweet story moves quickly but there aren't a lot of holes in it. The characters and plot are well-developed for a novella, and it's a perfect taste of her writing style and this series if you haven't read it before. It's a terrific addition to this series and goes to prove that a bad ass hero doesn't have to move the Earth for a woman to fall in love with him. All he has to do is love her unconditionally and make her little girl smile.

Do you love shapeshifters? I do, especially strong alpha males, the kind who take charge and aren’t afraid to get furry and kick ass for the one they want.

I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane...with pleasure.
