Will Alice land on the naughty list after kissing Santa? Will Santa be fired for inappropriate behavior? Or will she give him the five-star review he needs to keep his job and 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.
