Part of the Dick and the Sidekick series:
  • Detective Fox and the Christmas Caper

Every good Dick needs a sidekick…
Actor Tom Lewis’s world came crashing down when a honey trap and tabloid expose outed him and put pay to his flourishing career. The housewives favorite was most well-known for his role as ‘Detective Fox’ in the quaint British series 'Malmesbury Murders'. But after the media speculation about his sexuality, the show is in hiatus and Tom hasn’t worked six months.

Now things are getting serious, money is running out and Tom needs a job desperately. So when his agent offers him a seasonal acting job, he reluctantly agrees… and takes on the role of Santa for a top London department store.

This decision changes Tom’s luck. When Tom overhears two unidentified store workers discussing a "job to get a little Christmas bonus”. He realizes the 'job' is of the illegal sort. Now, Tom could call the police, but then again, wouldn’t it be great for his flagging career if Detective Fox saved the day?

So Fox is on the case, and as every good Dick needs a sidekick, Tom decides a sexy young elf named Eli Mason will fit the role, in more ways than one.

I was really in need of a quick, pick-up-my-spirits book and author Isobel Sterling did just that!

Tom Lewis is a very successful television actor that has housewives all over England drooling with his charming personality and debonair good looks. The “Tomcats”, as they call themselves, are shocked to learn that their television star idol is gay through an article in one of the “gossip rags”. He has recently been outed by a one-time hook-up. The worst part is that the “undercover” reporter didn’t just out him. He also told all about Tom’s kinky little secrets. Now he is in hoping to get picked back up for his starring role but that is looking a bit dicey. That and his checking account is dwindling fast. He is now forced to accept the role of Santa at the premiere department store winter wonderland extravaganza in London. Luckily he gets to pick his supporting cast and Tom has his eye on the perfect elf. When he falls into knowledge of a heist brewing at the exclusive department store he enlists his favorite elf, Eli, to help him nab the bad guys and restore his popularity. “Detective Fox and the Christmas Caper” is the story of how these two guys plot to thwart the bad guys and have some fun too!

Oh my goodness gracious did the author give us a wonderful little holiday bonus with Tom and his “needs”! Isobel Starling is known for her red hot men and their boundary pushing, scorching sex but she really gave us a Christmas treat with Tom’s kinkier side. Loved it!!! I truly enjoy a well written man who knows what he wants and needs and isn’t afraid to express it. Tom and Eli were not only blistering in bed with their explosive chemistry but they were also perfectly paired outside the bedroom. With Eli’s quick learner ability, and Tom’s years of experience, they were the perfect match.

I was truly excited to see that this is the start of a whole new series by Ms. Starling. She is one of my go-to authors that I know I can trust to write a story that draws me in and I won’t be able to set the book down until I’m done. A definite must read for a holiday treat!
