From the world of Willy the Kinky Elf & His Bad-Ass Reindeer.

The North Pole isn’t exactly as it appears in fairy tales. It has the elves and Santa and his reindeer, but Santa and Mrs. Claus aren’t the jolly couple the world believes them to be. Far from it, actually. The reindeer are all shape-shifters who transform into gorgeous beings in human form and are respected by all.

Reindeer Barry Simpson leads a simple life. He works, comes home, then does it all again the next day. Once upon a time, he was outgoing and social. That changed after he became involved with an abusive reindeer. It’s been a year since Barry ran and he’s finally getting over his fears, eager to start living again.

Ricky is a shy elf who blushes at every turn. One accidental touch and Barry’s convinced he’s finally met his mate. He’s never been with an elf before but he knows in his heart that this is the man he’s been waiting for.

Between meddling parents, an overprotective brother, and even a sad Santa Claus, Barry and his elf are pulled in several directions. When his abusive ex-boyfriend starts getting violent, Barry has to fight to protect not only himself but also those he loves, including his newfound mate.

My Review~

Barry the Lonely Reindeer is the 4th book in the land of elf Willy and his bad boy reindeer shifter Chief Randy. It’s always set in the North Pole at Christmas time. Book #1 is a hoot and I laughed my ass off at Willy the Kinky Elf, then book #3 was when reindeer Blake Simpson was making up for the shit fit he caused Evan because he wanted to be on Santa’s sleigh. It got close to wrecking Christmas for the whole world! Blake found his mate in that book. Barry is reindeer Blake’s younger brother and he’s been moving on from his ex partner since last Xmas. The dude’s a partner abuser named Ashton Kenton the IV. Barry is a reindeer but not the pulling Santa’s sleigh kind because he’s an accountant. For crazy reasons Ashton starts really hassling Barry again. It looks like he wants him back and he attacks Barry on his way home from work when Blake comes to little bro’s rescue. Ashton starts calling Barry’s mobile a lot and spooking him by rehashing memories of a time with Ashton when he was shut off from friends and family.

Willy’s still the same old Willy. He calls people buttheads when they’re buttheads 😀 and he puts his hands on his hips and off comes the fun elf filter! He’s a cool elf but don’t call him Randy’s little guy because he’ll totally rip you a new one!

Santa’s miserable because he got busted with Seth’s parents doing the naughty list conga and Mrs. Claus left. She’s been hanging out with the Pole’s local toy boys. Nothing new for Mary cause she likes em young and sexy. Santa’s moping around the village and annoying the businesses with misery and he’s not doing anyone so he needs to get laid.


“Oh, and FYI, Santa Claus has come out of hiding and has been wandering around looking lost. He’s annoying shopkeepers because of his woe-is-me attitude. I never thought I’d say this but I wish he and the missus would get back together so the rest of the North Pole can live in peace. He’s been hanging out at the post office and spending so much time at the diner that Velma is ready to charge him rent.”


“All I know is that there are less than two  weeks until Christmas Eve and Santa Claus better get jolly quickly or it’ll be a miserable holiday for a lot of damn people.”


Barry’s also dealing with his permanent elf boner.

“I was hard because of you. Hell, I’d been hard since I saw you in the candy shop yesterday morning. I was scared I’d embarrass myself in front of you within seconds of introducing myself.”

Blake is looking out for his bro.

“I’m going to kill the son of a bitch,” he growls.
“Let it go, Blake,” I mumble as he opens the door of the shop.
“Bullshit. You’re going to tell me what’s going on and then you’re filing charges against the bastard.”

Santa is looking likeElf Christmas Pic he’s down for the count. It sucks, because hello it’s Christmas! Ricky is 100% the mate of Barry but he’s in denial because his ex made him feel like a dirty secret and he’s shy. What floated my boat was Ricky being such an elf, walking around in green spandex with bells on. It’s their costume and all but if you picture it it’s kinda hilarious. He’s a smaller but heaps cuter Will Ferrell. But the biggest question of all is if Mrs. Claus is gonna hold the annual Christmas Bash because elves love peppermint whiskey, reindeer like to party, and Randy likes a speech.


It wouldn’t be CK and the Willy’s if there wasn’t sexy time.

“Mmm…” Getting bolder, his thumb swirls my pre-cum around the head of my dick and I have to fight to keep from shooting in his hand. “Keep doing that,” I moan into his mouth, “and it’ll be over before it starts.”



Haha! What’s this? It’s the naughty list candy cane!

“Hurry, Barry,” he groans out as he alternates between thrusting into my hand and pushing back against my fingers. I slide my fingers from his cock to his balls and gently roll them around.

Barry’s a little more serious than the other books in the series. Guy’s have partners who beat and bully them IRL which a lotta guys don’t talk about. Blake wanted to make up to his bro which anyone can understand. Santa gets a reality check. Mrs. Claus is Mrs. Claus. Ricky’s small and shy and the sparks fly when he touches his reindeer. That’s how they know they’re mates, plus the sex is extra fiiine for them. Willy is funny and silly and Randy is large and in charge and Barry goes green spandex loving! I hardly read much in the way of Xmas stories but the Willy series is my yearly time spent with the North Pole posse!

  1. “Haha! What’s this? It’s the naughty list candy cane!” <– That cracked me up. I need to use that line in the next book. 😉

    Thank you, Jay, for the great review. I'm loving the visuals. I'm glad you liked Ricky and Barry's story. And it's not Christmas until Willy calls at least one person a butt head. 🙂
