Santa’s Executive is book two in the Holiday, Montana series by Carrie Ann Ryan. This is the first book I have read in this series and it was fine to start with book two. I chose this book to add to my Christmas line up because it sounded like a really different sort of paranormal romance Christmas book. In that respect, it really was. As much as I love my paranormal romance, though, for some reason I couldn’t get into it as much as I wanted to. The characters were sweet but I gu

This is the story of Justin who finds out that he is going to be working for Santa. Rina is the elf who tells him all about his new job and helps him with his new position. While working together they become more than co workers but there is someone who doesn't like all the developments taking place.

This is a super cute romance with a wonderful twist on some Christmas myths. It is a light, low angst, cute story that is easy to enjoy. I highly recommend to those is the mood for a story with a Ch

Guess I'm the only one who hated this book. It just seemed to be disjointed and jumped all over the place. The whole plot was beyond ridiculous and seemingly pointless. Though at first I liked Justin Cooper, I really disliked Rina Brewer. I felt the story just rushed too fast into lust and sex. For Pete's sake, Rina's a sheltered elf who's never left the North Pole and suddenly she's in love and having naughty sex. It just didn't ring true.

I feel like I should apologize for not liking this. It feels like I am a Scrooge. But this just did not work for me. However, I believe a lot of people will love the story.

It is hard for me to describe, but a story that includes Santa, elves and teleporting snow globes just did not work for me. It was too hokey. And the bad guy element really irked me. I thought that plot made Santa look like an incompetent idiot.

The relationship was cute and sweet. I was worried this was clean when I

Myths and magic. Elves and Santa. We get to see what was bothering Justin. With help from Rina, Justin gets to love the holidays again and find magic in everyday. Jack Frost lives up to his name and mischief. Santa turns out to be more than we could have imagined.

Gregory gave us his voice and crisp characters.

This book was my first pick of the month, and I have to say, it definitely improved upon the first book, Charmed Spirits! It got me into the Christmas spirit, and also reminded me that Christmas is more than the commercialized holiday that we’re force fed the day after Halloween. It reminded me that the holiday is about caring about your fellow men, and trying to give them a bit of cheer. It didn’t hurt that the romance was super steamy and it was an amusing, enjoyable read. Looking forward to t ...more

There is not a Carrie Ann Ryan book that I have read that I have not loved!!! This is the second book in the series, it's about Justin and Rina and I love all the funny one liners, sexiness, and bad boy that is in this book. There are sexy elves, Jack Frost and Christmas magic as well. Rina is there to help Justin make this the best Christmas ever but someone from his past is there to foil them every step of the way. It is paranormal romance but not the typical paranormal that you're expecting. ...more

This is book 2 in the Holiday, Montana series. It covers high school principal Justin Cooper and Rina Brewer-one of Santa's elves! Justin is a reformed bad boy who loves dealing with kids on a daily basis. He just never realized he was an executive for Santa! Rina goes to try to help him learn his job and is attracted to him even though she knows it's wrong. And then you throw the bad guy in there! I loved it! There were twists and turns and just a different take on the whole myth of Santa Claus ...more
