Secret Santa: Welcome to Kissing Springs, Book 2 Kindle Edition
What happens when her Secret Santa is revealed? Will she return the gifts or will Santa unwrap a present of his own?
All Alice Gardner wants is for someone to love her, and her Nana doesn’t count. The curvy dental assistant fears she’ll never meet Mr. Right. But always looking on the bright side, she has a new job opportunity and a new, older neighbor with chiseled abs to keep her mind off being alone during the holidays.
Sentenced to community service, nothing in Axel Chase’s life is going as planned. He’s managing an auto shop, taking care of his Pop who has cancer, and his children live across the country. He always thought he’d have it all.
When he plays Santa at Alice’s office party, he finds himself “ho ho hoing,” especially when Alice sits on Santa’s lap and gives him a bone chilling kiss. Then when she whispers her naughty list into his ear, Axel’s heart and maybe something else begins to thaw.
Just when they’re getting comfortable with the age gap, as well as cozy in and out of bedroom, a bombshell destroys their happiness. But someone is still giving Alice everything on her list, and Alice begins to believe—in Kissing Springs—Santa is real.

Kristin Lee’s books have all the feels, and Secret Santa, Book 2 in the Welcome to Kissing Springs series, does not disappoint! While Axel and Alice have some deeply emotional scenes—together and separately—there’s also a fair share of lighthearted, fun scenes, too, not to mention the steamy stuff!
Both Axel and Alice are three dimensional characters with interesting, solid back stories. I loved how they were opposites, but even more so, I appreciated that Ms. Lee took the time to show us why they had different outlooks on life. Axel was a much deeper character than I expected, and I liked that he felt as if he’d made mistakes with his kids and wanted to make things right.
Alice—Axel calls her Sunbeam, and that’s perfect—is one of those happy-go-lucky people that really isn’t always happy. And I loved that beneath her sunshiny attitude, she was vulnerable and had her self-doubts. Even with those doubts, she was a selfless woman who wanted to make things easier for others.
Secret Santa is a swoony Christmas romance with all the steam I’ve come to expect from a Kristin Lee book. And Secret Santa delivered me a new book boyfriend—Axel in those jeans and aviators! ~ Tracy Broemmer, author of the contemporary romance, Holiday Fling
When their relationship was up in the air (I won't give away details), Kristin did such an amazing job of making me cry and feel everything Alice felt. Alice's choice not to push, because she wants what we all want, to be loved and chosen was mature, strong, and proved she was perfect for Axel!
"Who knew Santa delivered before Christmas?"
"I don't just want this. I need this like Santa needs his sleigh."
"You've loved and been loved. I would never regret loving someone even if it didn't work out."
There is so much Alice wants for Christmas and hopefully Santa can deliver.
Axel is trouble and Alice can see I a mile away. But that doesn't stop her from engaging with him. Axel feels he isn't good enough for Alice especially learning she's 12 years younger than him. He comes with baggage and doesn't want to lay that all on her. Plus he has 2 kids But love is no respecter of persons.
I loved that the main female character was spunky, sassy, and curvy. I also loved that she was written as someone who turned into an amazing stepmother. I don't think step parents get the credit thy deserve. Axel was moody and vulnerable which I loved as well.
I really enjoyed this book. Grumpy/sunshine, age gap, curvy heroine, opposites attract and a single dad.
Ali always has a smile, she’s upbeat even though she’s felt with a lot in her past. She confident, has style and a heart of gold.
Axel he’s Trouble! Staying next door to Ali while caring for his grandpa. He’s been divorced and doesn’t have a great relationship with his kids since they live out of state and he doesn’t like it. He’s also doing community service for a DUI… his punishment? Being a sexy Santa!!
The attraction and chemistry between these two is amazing! She’s not the type he’d usually go for, but he’s drawn to her.
I didn’t want to put this down once I stared. Kristin has a way getting you hooked.
4/5 stars and 3/5 for spice!
Secret Santa is the perfect book to get you in the Christmas spirit.
Axel and Ali had me hooked from their first meeting. Axel is yummy and understands how a woman should be treated. Ali just wants to know what it feels like to be loved.
Their chemistry and banter kept me locked into the story. The spice was on point, not over done.
I enjoyed Nana and Pops so much too! Something about grandparents in a book has my heart ❤
