Taking Down Mistletoe by Arlene Webb

Parties everywhere, but Alek—security and all-around handy guy—is stuck at work in the department store taking down the holiday decorations. Just when he thinks he’ll escape in time for a little celebrating, fate takes a deadly turn. A thirsty leech doesn’t mind going down, as long as Alek joins him.

Tried of sucking on candy canes, Loki is sick of the tall security guard ignoring him. He’s determined, one way or another, that Alek will find himself lying flat. Unfortunately, a man dressed in black enters the scene and interrupts him.

When the parasite-exterminator, in the form of a dark, handsome hunk, arrives and latches onto Alex, things go from weird to downright bizarre. Did Alek really find love under the mistletoe, or has something beyond sinister taken hold of him?

Reviewer: PurpleRose
This book was a little on the strange side and I can honestly say I've never read a book like it. A mistletoe is an evil living thing that sucks the life out of people that attaches itself to. In comes Van, who can't be looked in the eyes because his eyes will show crazy lust filled visions but he is also an exterminator that helps kill evil.

Weird and more weird in my opinion. It's an interesting idea but not really done well. The writing wasn't that good, it was a little hard to understand what's going on at times, and it all might have been a little too weird for me. Also, there were a lot of voices that weren't the two main characters which I didn't really care for, but I guess I can see the reason for getting into the mistletoe's head to understand it's evil. I also didn't really like any of the characters and hated Loki. I didn't really see a point for him even being in the story, he was just annoying. I'm giving this book 2 stars but I really think it probably should be only 1.
