Review - 'Drawn into Christmas 1' by JW Stacks


Review

Becky withdrew from the world and her family as a teenager because she developed unusual powers. Whatever she imagined or drew on paper came to life, but only for a temporary time. She told no one—afraid that she might hurt someone or they’d lock her up in a padded room—and her gifts have strengthened as she’s matured in age. She works as a comic-book artist, dislikes Christmas because she’s estranged from her parents and gets drunk alone on Christmas Eve night. She draws a sexy Santa and then he appears. The figment of her imagination has a mind of his own and turns Becky’s already chaotic world upside down. Hot sex and love blooms between her and Kris (Santa) and she hopes he’s there to stay. When he disappeared as all the other men she’d drawn/imagined did, she’s determined to get him back.
I’ve had this story on my Kindle for a while but I finally read it in preparation of the sequel that’s just come out. I really liked this story even though I usually don’t like first person narrative. The writing flowed well, kept me entertained and I only noticed a few typos. I don’t understand why there weren’t any chapter headings (the entire story is one long chapter) but it didn’t bother me much since the story was so short anyway.
Overall, the story is a great read and it certainly jogs the imagination.
I can’t wait to find out what happens in the sequel.
4 Stars.
