Garnet Evergreen has never heard of an elf abandoning the North Pole for a human, but he yearns to be the first. Ever since he saw Wes, the boy with sorrowful eyes, Garnet felt an undeniable kinship. Over the years, he's watched that boy grow into a man, and now he's determined to give Wes a Christmas he'll never forget. If only Garnet had thought to test his father's sleigh before leaving...

Orphaned as a child, Wes spends every Christmas alone at his cabin. When he's woken by a suspicious boom and finds a wrecked sleigh and an unconscious elf, he doesn't know how to react. Wes isn't fanciful. He doesn't give much credence to the stories about Santa Claus and flying reindeer. But a part of him wants desperately to believe when Garnet promises forever, even if life has taught him that no one ever stays...

By Santa's beard, if this doesn't get you in the holiday spirit, nothing will!

We have the elf, Garnet Evergreen, and before I go any further I have to address the wonderful cheesiness that is his name. Garnet Evergreen? Classic! Anyway, he's been watching over Wes for years, they've had brief encounters, but Garnet is ready for the real thing. He leaves the North Pole to go get his man.

Garnet and Wes were so, so cute. Wes was lonely and he usually spent Christmases alone. But now Garnet was there and he was determined to make sure that didn't happen anymore. Garnet was so thoughtful towards Wes. He did adorably sweet and simple gestures for him. He seduced Wes with his kindness.

I'm a sucker for a good cuddling scene and I was not disappointed. There wasn't any on-page sex, but there didn't need to be. All the tension and chemistry was there from the kisses and cuddles.

I'm no holiday fluff expert, but I'm thinking there's no crying in holiday fluff. I just couldn't help it! I adored Garnet and Wes so much that I felt all the emotions for them.

You'll get all the holiday cheer you need with Garnet. Candy cane sweaters, perfect gifts, snowball fights, sayings like 'you scared the tinsel out of me', and a gloriously sappy ending, just to name a few.

Make sure to put THE WORKING ELF BLUES on the top of your holiday reading list. It's such a treat.
