Garnet has been in love with Wes for almost as long as he can remember. Only able to visit him on Christmas Eve every five years, Garnet has watched the quiet child who holds his heart grow into a man. He's determined that this year will be different. He'll win Wes' love and give up the North Pole to finally achieve his heart's desire.
Unfortunately for Garnet, his plans to woo Wes aren't working out quite like he envisioned. In all actuality, the entire trip has been a disaster from the very beginning. What's a love sick elf to do?
THE WORKING ELF BLUES is a light hearted and entertaining Christmas novella that also contains romance, poignant emotions, laugh-out-loud humor, furry friends, and a sneak peek into Santa's inner circle of elves that has never been seen before.
My OFFICIAL REVIEW written for Carly's Book Reviews
Wes hasn't had the nicest life. His parents died in a fire when he was 8, and he shuttled into foster care. He was adopted, but that parent died, too. He had a decent inheritance, makes a good living, yet has virtually no one to love, excepting his four sled dogs. He is also a kind and caring man, albeit a bit standoffish.
Garnet is a toymaker elf. He has grand ideas for a different life than his fellow elves: he lost his heart to Wes many years ago and wants to see if there can ever be anything between them. See, Garnet hitchhiked on Santa's sleigh 15 years ago and met Wes who was mourning his lost parents. Garnet was young too, and sympathized, comforting Wes through the night. Ten years ago, Garnet hitchiked again, finding Wes for a brief chat and meal. He's kept an eye on Wes, hoping that Wes would find some peace, and growing steadily more enamored. And five years ago, he... you get the picture; Garnet can't stay away from Wes.
Thing is, Garnet's plan to knock on Wes' door and introduce himself, again, goes horribly wrong, and it's a Christmas miracle that Wes ends up rescuing Garnet. The two men bond over a quiet, comfortable meal, and a real affection develops as they spend time together...until the Big Guy shows up.
Will Saint Nick put these two asunder?
I really enjoyed this quiet Christmas romance. There's not a lot of heat, but the story sparks along with lots of heart. Wes and Garnet are so adorable together.
I received a copy of this book via NetGalley. This is my honest review.
Piper did a fantastic job of making me connect with both MCs. Garnet is elf who one Christmas Eve snuck aboard Santa's sleigh and found a very sad little boy named Wes. Over the years, Garnet has checked up on Wes because he just can't forget the boy with the sorrowful eyes. This year, Garnet decides to bring Wes a special gift for Christmas, but he crashes the sleigh he drives there.
Needless to say, these characters have some history that Piper gives us without making us dredge through too many memories. Garnet and Wes are definitely attracted to each other, but take their time to get to know one another.
The ending was beautiful and made me cry (on a good way). When Garnet finally gets the courage to give Wes his gift, it's amazing.
You can't go wrong when one MC has been in love with, and watching out for the other, for 15 years. Then, goes as far as risking his own life to bring a little Christmas cheer to the one he loves, well how can you go wrong?
This short little read will warm your heart and put a smile on your face. Not to mention giving grown-ups everywhere a reason to believe in Santa, again.
