Elementary music teacher Elijah Phelps is content with his life, but content doesn’t always measure up when the only thing keeping him warm at night is a wine buzz and a vivid imagination. A Secret Santa gift from a mystery admirer spices up his routine, and Eli is in over his head when it seems the two prospects—the sexy Coach Ryan Jeffers and the very tasty Principal Daniel Collins—have taken more than a casual interest in the easily flustered music teacher. Between Christmas concert mayhem, a broken-down beater, and a case of mistaken gaydentity, this holiday season will be one to remember. A new year brings the possibility of new love, but will Eli choose the jock or his brilliant and completely off-limits boss?
Eli Phelps is a music teacher and in charge of the upcoming Christmas pageant, and if that isn’t enough stress on him he has a received a secret Santa gift with the most amazing note. The only prospects he can think of is the sexy as hell Coach Jeffers or his boss the handsome Principle Collins, who is off limits. Or is he?
Eli sounds like a cutie pie that has a lot on his plate this winter season. When he finds out what his secret Santa has given him that’s when the fun and awkwardness begins. He of course tells his family about the present and as a close family they tease him about it and try to help figure out who could have given him such a thoughtful gift.
His interactions with both Coach Jeffers and Principle Collins are awkward, funny and so perfect. The way Sandra wrote what poor Eli is going through, you felt what he was feeling. I truly enjoyed reading “Santa’s Little Secret” and think you will too.
