内容紹介

Jackson has loved Vegas since God created Man—literally. As demonic incubi hailing from the Seventh Circle of Hell, Jackson and Vegas have never been anything more than roommates. Now living among humans, they run Eaven, a TripAdvisor-recommended detour-worthy diner famous for its devilishly decadent pies. Business is dead on the holidays, and Jackson will gleefully stab himself with a spatula if he has to clean spotless pots and pans one more time.

For fun—or torture—Vegas makes him a bet that should Jackson win, they take a much-needed vacation. Should he lose, he’s doomed to clean out grease traps for all eternity. When the challenge is to fall in love with other people by Christmas, it proves Vegas isn’t the least bit interested. But when they find an abandoned baby in the trash, she could be the Christmas miracle to warm Jackson’s cynical heart.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2015 Advent Calendar package "Sleigh Ride".

This was the longest of the Holiday stories from the DSP advent calendar that I read this year. It was also very different from the others. It’s about two incubus who own a diner together and one has a thing for the other. I thought this one was well written and fun to read. As usual this author wrote some quirky characters. I’d say it was pretty light on the Christmas theme but good none the less.

Jackson followed Vegas to diner in the middle of nowhere named Eaven because he secretly wants more than just friendship from his best friend. The only thing that seems to get people to take the exit to the diner is that Vegas makes excellent pies. Pies that are detour-worthy. Despite being dead almost every holiday Vegas keeps the store open. Jackson’s whining and boredom lead to Vegas making a bet with him. The winner has to find love by Christmas. Jackson doesn’t know how but he’s determined to win. Then fate throws him another curve ball when they find a baby in the dumpster behind the diner. AND the baby hates Vegas but loves Jackson.

I liked this story. The characters were a lot of fun. I feel like I got to know them pretty well. Mostly Jackson since the story is told from his POV. He secretly pines for Vegas while being determined to win the bet. There’s also a weird hippy trippy shop owner who keeps hanging around that Jackson thinks has eyes for Vegas. Jackson’s opinion of him is pretty funny which gives us some of the funniest lines of the book. I laughed out loud at the “Moonbeam Rainbow-whatsit” line and it certainly seemed to fit. This story was also one of the naughtier Christmas stories I read in this advent Calendar. Again not something I’ve come to expect from this author. Guess that’s what I get for assuming! I think the only thing that niggled me was that a sheriff would go out of town for a month. BUT it’s a story about incubus so I just rolled with it. I also love the cover!

A Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words.com review (A Ali Review)

Rating: 3.5 rounded up to 4 stars out of 5

Jackson has loved Vegas since God created Man—literally. As a demonic incubi hailing from the Seventh Circle of Hell, Jackson and Vegas have never been anything more than roommates. Now living among humans, they run Eaven, a TripAdvisor-recommended detour-worthy diner famous for its devilishly decadent pies. Business is dead on the holidays, and Jackson will gleefully stab himself with a spatula if he has to clean spotless pots and pans one more time.

For fun—or torture—Vegas makes him a bet that should Jackson win, they take a much-needed vacation. Should he lose, he’s doomed to clean out grease traps for all eternity. When the challenge is to fall in love with other people by Christmas, it proves Vegas isn’t the least bit interested. But when they find an abandoned baby in the trash, she could be the Christmas miracle to warm Jackson’s cynical heart.

I thought this was a really enjoyable holiday story. It was creative and outside of the box. Jackson loves Vegas but has never had the courage to tell him. The two men make a bet on Thanksgiving as to who can fall in love by Christmas. Jackson’s heart’s not really in to it but he decides to play along hoping maybe he can finally get over his feelings for the other man. Things get even more complicated when they find a baby girl in the trash outside their restaurant. There were a few little things that didn’t make sense to me (ie a side story about another couple) but they were not big enough to effect my overall enjoyment of the story. If you like stories with a paranormal twist you should definitely give this story a try.

Cover art by L.C. Chase. I thought this cover was really well done. It perfectly captures both the holiday and the paranormal aspect of the story.

Jackson’s been in love with his best friend for so long he’s followed him to a tiny backwater town and agreed to open a diner so Vegas could be a chef. Unfortunately, Vegas doesn’t see him as anything more than a friend so while the diner is dead for the holidays, Vegas proposes a bet that they have to fall in love in a month. But when they find a baby in the dumpster, their lives may just be changed forever.

I absolutely ADORED this book! I found Vegas’ bet about finding love in a month very amusing and really liked that Jackson was so jealous of Vegas being with someone else. What I really loved, though, is the little baby. It was so funny how she cried anytime Vegas tried to hold her or when the situation would get in the way of Jackson and Vegas getting together. My only issue is that I was really confused in the beginning. I felt like I was dropped right in the middle of a story so I didn’t understand some of the things they talked about when it related to their nature.

All in all, though, I loved this story. It was cute, fun and a quick read. I loved Jackson and Vegas as characters and really hope the author considers writing more about them in the future because I feel like there’s so much more potential left in them!
5つ星のうち 5.0 Loved this hot Holiday story! <3 2015/12/13

So let me start this review off by saying this was such a hot Holiday short story about two demons who finally admit to their feelings for each other! I really did not want this one to end, it was just so damn good!!!

Jackson is a incubi along with his friend Vegas.. They have both known each other forever! They also own a diner together which is in a very small town.
Well they both make a bet with each other that the other would not be able to find a someone to fall in love with before Christmas. Little to Jackson know what was really going on with Vegas or Jackson realizing just how hard the thought of Vegas with someone beside him in is life.

Now when these two finally admit their feelings it was honestly just so damn hot!! Then there was the baby added to the mix which was so cute!

All together I thought this was such a cute Holiday story and I loved it!
I would definitely recommend this story!

I received this book free in exchange for an honest review from Inked Rainbow Reads.
5つ星のうち 5.0 An Entertaining "Holidays with a Paranormal Twist" Story 2015/12/16

As you would expect from a Christmas story, “Loving and Loathing Vegas” is sweet. However, due to a twist or two, and the tiny details thrown in by the author, it is also fun. Vegas and Jackson are incubi run one of the two diners in their tiny town. Even though the town shuts down completely for the holidays at the end of the year, Vegas insists on the diner being open. This year, as always, no customers walk through the door, and the only thing that livens the day up at all is the bet Vegas suggests. A bet that Jackson all but forgets when he and Vegas discover a baby among the trash in the alley.

“Loving and Loathing Vegas” was an entertaining read that fits perfectly into the Holidays with a Paranormal Twist section. I’d love a second story from the town (no, I won’t tell you who it would be about).

It has been quite some time since I last read any of Lex Chase’s work, so I don’t really remember my impressions at the time, but this one was a good way to spend the time.
