"Do you want to help me put the ho in holiday?"

That’s the line a drunken Jacob Shaw utters to the hottest Santa he’s ever seen. It’s also the only thing he remembers of the night that led to him waking up half naked in a revealing elf costume next to an equally half-naked Santa.

Killian Connolly is a loner. Even with his tight-knit work family, he tends to stick to the fri

This is pushing all the wrong buttons for me, and pushing them hard. What we have is age gap, experience gap, and major size difference, with:

- a big hulking MMA fighter


- a wee tiny little[1] demure younger guy who's preoccupied with his virginity.[2]

[1] He's 5'3"! (That's 160cm, for my international friends.) Can you guess what percentage of adult American men are that short? Well, the answer is we don't know, because according to the U.S. Census Bureau, it is a number "too small to meet sta

This was sexy and sweet and everything I needed. It didn’t show any of the previous characters which I was bummed about and it didn’t show them meeting just the next morning in bed. All in all it was good and the perfect way to start my year.

4 wake up married after a Christmas party stars

“Can… Can I touch you?” Jacob asked. “Sweetheart, I can say with almost a hundred percent certainty that I’d let you stab me if you asked while looking at me the way you’re looking at me right now.”

Look, it’s no secrets I love Onley James and that I love the Elite Protection series (and the spin off) and I was really excited for this story and it lived up to my expectations.

I love Onley James’ brand of very chaotic but really damn romantic stories
This series has been a bit of a rollercoaster for me, loved some of the installments and others are have been ... meh. Color me surprised then to have really liked this short story featuring characters who have appeared in prior books but who haven't been major players.

Jacob, Robby's older brother from Exasperating wakes up in a slutty elf outfit next to a bear of a man dressed as Santa. Santa turns out to be Connolly, one of Elite's bodyguards and an MMA fighter. The stage is set for smexy del

Loved this story.
I’m glad we got to know more about Jacob. I always wanted his HEA. Connolly was a character I also wanted to know more about.
This was a sweet, sexy and no angst story. Perfect to read the 1st of the year.

Even though it was short, a lot a story was packed in to this satisfying book. See what I did there 😉

Honestly, this author can write nothing I don't love and enjoy so so much. Great character dynamics, amped up emotion and situations, and just insanely good chemistry between the MCs.

If you haven't read this series yet GET ON IT. One of my favorite things from all of 2020.

Cannot wait for what's next from this author this year!
Another excellent short...Sweet, virginal Jacob..So happy to see him get a HEA! This is an adorable, sweet, age-gap, hurt/comfort, sexy hot read!!

I want to wake up with a naughty elf and Santa, especially if it means more Jacob and Connolly in my life. Scorching hot chemistry, adorable silliness and oh those pulls on my heartstrings, I love this fantastic and amazing series.
Onley James always delivers. The short was so well written I wish it was a full novel. Jacob and Connolly are both sweet and sexy, I loved them. The sex scenes are smoking hot - signature Onley James.

Sweetness overload with a gentle bear and a timid virgin - stuck in a cabin during a snowstorm. Strangers too - who appear to have gotten married the night before. It's a very adorable tale with some depth. ...more

New to me Author. This was a short MM Novella. Main characters are Jacob and Connolly. Jacob wakes up in bed dressed as a sexy elf with Connolly partly dressed as Santa. The previous night they had been to a Christmas party got very drunk, amnesia and married. this story covers the 1st few days locked away in a cabin in a snow storm. Great epilogue! I'll read more from this author. ...more

“Do you want to help me put the hoe in holiday?” 🤣

This was a hot and sweet Christmas treat featuring Jacob (Robby from book three’s brother) and Connelly. (One of Elite’s bodyguards.)

Can definitely be read as a stand-alone. However this series is worth checking out! I have only read two books in the series as the other two are daddy ones but I enjoyed the two I read. Especially book two. 😍

Read this for:

✅ Forced proximity

I didn't think Onley James had this level of sweet in her! This gem of a short is like Christmas candy, with the big, rough Santa turning to mush for the sweet little elf. No sociopaths, psychopaths or violence, just sweetness and hot sex.

Take one virginal, former cult member elf (Robby from Exasperating's older brother) and one lumberjack-looking MMA fighter Santa (one of Robby's husband Calder's friends) add blackout levels of alcohol, an apparent marriage, and then forced proximity (snowboun

I was really excited when I read the teaser for this, since it was the first scene of Jacob flipping out thinking he lost his virginity to a sexy married santa (although I think some of his flipping out was edited out, anyways....) and I really liked the whole story, it was funny, steamy, sweet but there was something that I can't pinpoint what exactly it was that kept from loving this.

Maybe the frequent mentions of their size difference? The whirlwind of passion and cooling down... so yeah. Sti

This short was perfectly fine and worked great with an ongoing series, simply wasn't a story that I personally found interesting. The two men don't know how they ended up getting so drunk they got married, but that's where they wake up and they go from there. It was an easy launching point for the start of something however the chemistry between the two just felt a bit forced to me. Without having that connection between the two the short wasn't all that interesting. ...more

I was a little concerned how our quirky Jacob was going to find his man... and there he was standing right in front of us all along! Killian's past may have had some really rough spots, but all he needed was a certain young man to bring joy back into his life! This short story was a great addition to the series with an amazing ending! ...more

Winter Wonderland download. 3.5 stars. Short story in the Elite Protection Services series, featuring Connolly of EPS and Jacob. The story rolls through their first day of marriage, as they learn about one another. James works this overused plot well enough for it to be entertaining, triggering some laughs.

Swoon worthy, sexy and cute. It was fun seeing Connolly get a HEA, especially with someone as sweet as Robby's brother!

This story was a sweet and fun re-entry into this world. It takes place about a week after the epilogue in book 4. (It can be read as a standalone but I highly recommend the Elite Protection Servies series.)

The blurb made me expect something funny, kinky and maybe a little over the top.
Instead I got a really sweet, partly emotional and frankly beautiful little story that turned my heart to mush - and there's still some funny dialogue and a little kink, no worries.
Loved it!
Black-out-drunk Vegas marriage, stuck in a little cabin during a snow storm ... great set-up for the porn that follows, just not for me. I made it as far as the (I think completely out of place) kiss *ughhhh*

I’m so glad Jacob got his HEA ❤️

It’s sickly sweet and hot as hell, what’s not to love 😍

Interesting setup. I’d read the two first two books in this series but not the ones this book refers to so I was a little confused at a few assumptions made.
