The Noel Before Christmas by Harper B. Cole, Trisha Linde, Colbie Dunbar

The grinch's heart got thawed by the magical fae in The Noel Before Christmas.

From the blurb:

All he wants for Christmas is a family…

Alpha wolf shifter Noel has always hated Christmas. Everyone just assumes he’ll be festive to the max,
with a name like his, but it couldn’t be further from the truth. He can’t help but associate this time of year with sadness and loss, and he’d much rather just hibernate for the entire month of December. The irony isn’t lost on him, however, when he finds himself wearing a bright red suit, chanting ho, ho, ho.

Omega fae Calen loves this time of year. The lights, the tinsel, the overall joy–it fills him to bursting with Christmas spirit. This is the exact reason why he’s always first in line amongst his coworkers at the department store to volunteer to work at Santa’s Workshop.

The two find themselves working together, and while their personalities clash, Noel can’t help but feel himself being drawn under Calen’s spell. Will the grumpy alpha find a way to change his mind about the holiday season? It would be a Christmas miracle.

Angel's Review:

This book caught my attention from the first chapter, from that first chapter I was invested. Noel was such a grumpy Grinch that it was amusing how much of a Grinch he was. And Calen was so cheerful, and such a juxtaposition from Noel. There was definitely a grumpy/sunshine trope going on, and I enjoyed reading about how Calen thawed Noel's heart. 

I really enjoyed these characters. This was such a festive story! I loved the banter these two characters had with each other. This was really well written, great characters, and a good progression. A bit fast, but it is a short story, so that makes sense. 

Overall, a good holiday fated mates book!.
