4-1/2 Stars Such a wonderful holiday story that will leave you smiling no matter what time of year you read A Christmas for Oscar. I have to admit that if I could meet an elf like Nathan, I too would brave the Black Friday sales. Oscar may not be a Scrooge but he's no Christmas elf either but Nathan brings something into Oscar's life that just may bring the Christmas spirit to life. Another new author for me, which can be scary but I find it to be exciting and Alex Whitehall is a name I'll be checking out again. A great addition to my holiday shelf.

4.5 stars- Ticked all the boxes for a Christmas short I really enjoyed this short Christmas story. The characters were interesting and personable. They both had a backstory that provided depth, but it didn't feel like there wasn't enough time to develop their story. I liked how they contrasted but came together as a couple. Oscar's dislike for the holiday was an unique character trait for a holiday centric book, but I liked how the author had it play out. I was a little nervous when I first read the blurb that it wouldn't be light or would focus too much on the "scrooginess" of Oscar, but that wasn't the case at all. I found myself smiling most of the way through and swept in by the characters and story. The romance leaned toward the whirlwind sort with lust building to more, and I was impressed how much emotion and chemistry the author packed into a short story. There wasn't a skimp on the sexy scenes either, yet they worked within the story so it didn't feel like sex just for heat's sake. The writing itself was very good, descriptive but with a brisk pace that kept me engaged. The story had a good conflict with a clean resolution, and it didn't feel fake or manufactured simply for angst. I'm a sucker for good banter, and the dialogue between Oscar and Nathan was fun and witty. This was such a pleasurable short story, and I'll be adding this author to my "read more" list. If you like Christmas stories with some heat, a good story and characters, and some fun dialogue- this is definitely worth picking up. *ARC provided by NineStar Press.
