Absolutely lovely, I am not normally a fan of the virgin FMC but because she isnt a teenager I don't mind. The breeding at the end was 10/10

Somehow I missed the "erotica" tags for this book, oh well. Dear Monster Claus is exactly as its described: an erotic novella following Xo, a cupid that desires to experience love for herself and begins writing letters daily to Santa, later revealed to be a dragon named Arson, in hopes that he'll grant her this in a gift. Instead, he shows up on her doorstep and they make a deal: she helps him get his holiday spirit back and he helps her find love.
(Arson helping Xo find love starts with romance lessons such as kissing, flirting, and orgasms).


The story quickly moves on from there following Xo and Arson as they work on their deal, eventually falling in love with each other, but mostly having sex. I loved the explanation of each character's holidays and how they lived their lives, how holidays were created by things they did many years ago. I was intrigued by the lore and would love to know more
(ex: sucking on candy canes started from BJs due to the dragon's having red and white stripped privates and tasting like peppermint.)
Some were wild and silly but still interesting to read how the author weaved the story together. Since I did miss the erotica part, I was not expecting the amount of smut in the story. The plot felt quick, especially when the main characters proclaimed their love for each other. I would have enjoyed reading more about the characters and their budding romance. Besides that, I enjoyed the story and would continue reading more from the author.

I consider myself a Grinch most of the year, but something about the holidays really brings out my inner Who and I’m not even mad about it.

After all, ’tis the season for warm blankets, hot cocoa, and spicy romances! And, boy, is this one a real mint. Seriously, you all, this one made momma blush hardcore

TW/ Tropes: sexual situations, sex acts, honorifics, squirting, anal, praise, breeding kink, shibari-lite with ribbon, peppermint cum, a candy cane dick, a sex swing, drool-play, salirophilia, (he really likes making her messy with his release.) There’s virgin sex without condoms. There is what’s called the melt, which is their equivalent to omega/alpha traits, pregnancy trope

Xo is a Cupid. As a Cupid she has helped others find love but never experienced love herself. She is determined to find love. Her first step in doing so is to ask Santa. Then comes along a grumpy and bitter Santa searching for Christmas joy. Together they can get what they want.

Xo was so cute and relatable in a sense. She was adorable

Sweet and sexy

Cute little Christmas story about Cupid finding love with Santa. Best thing about it is the front cover - oh and the candy cane/peppermint vibes.
