Brick Colton has been hired to kill Santa Claus—or at least the kindhearted accountant playing Santa for the kids in an orphanage. Brick grew up in an orphanage himself, but that isn’t the only thing bothering him about the contract on Robin Marvington’s life. The details don’t add up, and it’s looking more and more like someone has set Robin up. As Brick investigates, Robin brings some much-needed cheer into his life, the light in Robin’s soul reaching something in Brick’s dark one. But all of that will end if they can’t find the person who wants Robin dead.
This is a sweet, yet still hot, novella for the holidays from Dirk Greyson that I devoured in less than one sitting. That’s not because it’s that short or boring (nothing of the sort!) but because it was that engaging and fun. Brick is an assassin who is exceptional at what he does. It’s a job and those he kills need it for some reason, no problem. Until he’s taped to kill Robin, the man who does these things like play Santa for orphans and homeless kids. How does Santa deserve to be dead?
Yeah, what’s an assassin to do when he develops a conscious over a sweet and sexy man like Robin? Well, you find out why someone wants him dead, of course! It’s the journey that gets these two men there that will steal your heart and make you go awwww…. I’ve loved Dirk’s novels, and this is just as captivating, if a little more light-hearted and fun (while still being so “Dirk”). Definitely a must read for the holidays!
Dirk is very much an outside kind of man. He loves travel and seeing new things. Dirk worked in corporate America for way too long and now spends his days writing, gardening, and taking care of the home he shares with his partner of more than two decades. He has a Master’s Degree and all the other accessories that go with a corporate job. But he is most proud of the stories he tells and the life he’s built. Dirk lives in Pennsylvania in a century old home and is blessed with an amazing circle of friends.
