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.
A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package “Sleigh Ride”.
Brick is hired to kill a Santa Claus on Christmas…
But once he sees who is behind the costume he finds he can not do it after all.
This was such a sweet holiday Novella but it was also sad and dark in parts because of everything Brick had gone through growing up and how it shaped his life to this point.
I really do not want to give away any of this story because it was just so good you really need to read this one for yourself. But I will say I loved the way this author wrote these characters and this story!
All together I really loved this Holiday story!
I would recommend this Novella!
Absolutely loved this book even though it was kind of a dark read but I’ve come to expect no less from this author. This book was extremely fast paced and the author was able to pull this off in only 54 pages. Brick and Robin were amazing separately and together. The author drew me immediately into the story right from the beginning. As I read this story holiday story I immediately began to feel for both characters. They both started out the same but their lives were completely different. The author made me believe that an assassin can find love with a person completely different.
Oh this was such a good little story that falls into the holiday
category although it really could be read at any time of the year.
I liked the fact that we got to see under the hard core assassin
exterior to the man who had feelings and didn’t just do his job
without thinking about it. The way these two men connected was just
great. I really enjoyed watching as they went from Killer/Killee to
much more than that.
Such a great story.
