Blurb: Ty prepares for the holiday season by kicking out his cheating boyfriend and consoling himself with chocolate and cold Chinese food. Unfortunately, rent and bills force him to grab a pair of red-and-white tights and pretend to be in the holiday spirit as a mall elf. Thankfully, there’s a janitor who’s too handsome for the part of a mop pusher to help distract him.
Nikolas the Janitor sweeps Ty off his feet with his smile and generous spirit. Ty wishes he could fall in love as easily as a romantic comedy, but his ex still holds a piece of his heart. Ty wants to accept Nikolas as his new secret Santa, but he might be doomed to pine after his ex all Christmas long.

Review: This is a cute little short story for Christmas. Ty had been in a relationship before and his heart had been broken. His best friend got him a job at the mall working as an elf. This leads him to many surprises but one with which his heart sees the true love of his life.
Although I have to admit this story does not come off as real, it was a very cute story that lightens the heart. It was a blast to read and can make a lonely holiday a bit cheerful. I liked it and can see myself reading it over every holiday. It also gives me a hope that is long gone. I look forward to reading more by this amazing author.
