Publisher's Summary

Despite growing up in a family of villains, I’d rather curl up and read than commit crimes. When I get coerced by my brother into helping him rob a bank, I run into August, my childhood crush, also known as Chrono, the city’s greatest superhero. He’s sexy, sweet, and suddenly, he’s asking me to Thanksgiving with his parents. 

It’s probably because he doesn’t realize that I’m Leviathan, a villain with the power of telekinesis. And I can’t tell him because he’d never forgive me and would stop doing things like cooking for me - wait, maybe that would be a good thing, since he’s a terrible cook. It doesn’t help that my parents think they’re the ultimate villains and won’t stop getting in my way, although they can’t even steal toilet paper without getting caught. 

But when real supervillains (not the wannabe kind that I grew up with) start targeting August, I might be forced to show everyone who I truly am: a slightly warped and snarky man who’d really rather read a book than save anything...besides August.

I’ll tear this world apart just to get another glimpse of him in those glasses and spandex suit. I’ll do whatever it takes to keep him safe, even though it means exposing my true identity. Luckily, August still cares about me, proving that even a villain and a hero can fall in love. Hopefully, we’ll be able to save the world in time for Christmas. 

This ridiculous and snarky holiday novel contains a villain-turned-unlikely hero (even if he’s a manager's worst nightmare), a superhero with a fondness for suckers who absolutely does not use his powers to cheat on board games, a hairless cat with an unfortunate name, bumbling family members that try to be evil, but are mostly just embarrassing, a snow globe with mysterious powers, betrayal, true love, a risqué Santa suit, and the saltiest chicken ever.

Fast paced and funny as hell

This was my first Alice Winters read, and it inspired me to buy everything else I could lay my hands on!

Landon remains my favorite, out of all of Alice’s wonderful men.

This story is fun to read, fast paced and very entertaining. I found the characters really likable (surrounding family and friends too) and the banter was outstanding.

Currently a stand alone, but I really hope there will be more of this wonderful cast in the future!

wow!!!!! just wow!!!!

It's review time 🎧

A villain for Christmas
By Alice Winters
Narrator Michael Lesley

“P*nis!”
“Super Awesome Villains Combined for the Greater Evil of Mankind.”

Narrator score🎧 ; Michael leslie the one and only!!! The voices the little giggles, the sound effects. All was just incredible!!!!!!!!!!! I can't even! I loved every single second of the sass and in the little parts that were sad he knew how to bring the sadness into this comedy like no one else. especially the deep voice he gave the mother lol.

“Hello?” I answer as sexily as I possibly can, keeping my voice low and seductive.
“Oh, I’m sorry, were you asleep?” August asks. I sigh.

Level of steam🔥: the magic about Alice winters is that she doesn't need a lot of steam in her books. They do have some small moments, but the innuendos are 10000 times better! I just love the way she can bring S* alive without actually writing it.

“It’s Moistman,” I announce. “He’ll get you wet with just a look.”

Level of anxiety and sadness0😱😢: it's a lovely and incredibly perfectly written comedy. But even here we have some emotional moments and she knows how to break our hearts a tiny bit.

“This is your cat?”
“Yes.”
“What’s her name?”
“Balzac,” I say proudly. “You… named your cat… Ball S*c?”
“No. Balzac.”

The book itself📖: what can I even say? This book is another masterpiece of a great story teller. I can tell you that I want it as a movie because of all the reasons! It was an incredible story. We have that powerful villain that doesn't wants to be one and he's in love with an hero.
The author created a world with an amazingly easy banter. I can't even explain how she did it. But the fact is that she did. We have that group named Pi**s and that cat named Ballzac in a very complex world but the MC takes everything in such a light manner that you can't even get how terrible things are. I think this author is a magician of sorts. I loved every single character it was a brilliant story.

"I slow down and strut out to the car like I think I’m hot shit, as he gets out of the car and comes to my side. Clearly, it’s sexy enough that he’s going to stop what he’s doing and pull open the door for me. “Did you hurt your foot?”y.

So much silliness is good for the soul

4 Blue Roses
4 Blue Flames

Narrator Michael Lesley delivered a fun-filled, highly imaginative, funny as fuck performance. Let’s face it, if you want comedy narrated, then Michael Lesley is your guy. Pair him with author Alice Winters and you have the perfect recipe for silliness with an extra scoop insanity.

The plot is ingenious with a superhero who falls in love with a supervillain who doesn’t want to be a villain. They develop secret mutual crushes, which is absurd because they are supposed to be fighting each other.

Landon, the villain has the power of telekinesis, and August, the superhero, can freeze time. They get into all kinds of trouble while bantering. Their families are obviously not in favor of their relationship. So Landon wants to be normal and get rid of his power, so he can have a normal life and not be used by his wannabe villain family.

The story involves multiple characters and it’s extremely entertaining to listen to. Almost like watching television. The plot was well written with vividly well rounded secondary characters.

I do recommend this audiobook, keep an open mind, it is silly and lighthearted. Guaranteed to lift your mood and pump you full of positivity.

Happy Listening

Didn’t laugh once

I’m used to laughing uproariously while listening to this author’s books. I have all her audiobooks but this one didn’t work for me. It felt like a teen story until you hit the sex scenes and then I upgraded it to New Adult. Landon’s angst filled rants and poor decision making became tedious. I didn’t care for the reader’s delivery style. I love her other books but sadly this one was a miss for me

Adorable

I swear if Alice Winters and TJ Klune aren’t the same person, then they were twins separated by birth. I love them both. This book was highly entertaining as all of Alice’s books have been that I’ve read. I love the mix of snarkiness and action. I’m hoping more is to come! Also, Michael Lesley is always one of my favorite narrators!

Laugh out loud

There were so many parts of this book that had me laughing so hard I was crying. Landon is a villain who has a major crush on August who is a hero. But Landon is not your typical villain. Landon’s family is unique. And you’ll fall in love with them. And August isn’t your typical hero either. When you put them together only craziness can ensue. I’m a HUGE fan of Alice Winters. I really hope we get more of these crazy characters.

Make me wish there were more Supervillain romances

Thoroughly addictive Low angst mm rom com that is wonderfully unpredictable.
Made me wish it was vol 1 in its own series and Leviathan's brother's got a book to as well as some of heroes from Kronos Team...

Amazing!!

I have been waiting for this audio ever since it was announced that Michael Lesley would be narrating it. I was not disappointed!!
I adored everything about this story. Landon was over the top which compliments August perfectly!!
Landons family was awesome, even though they were jerks a few times.
Holiday story plus super hero/villains-you won’t be disappointed!!

Love this!

Alice Winters is a fantastic author and I love all their fiction! Not too keen on Micheal Lesley as a narrator for this, too much sighing, pausing and awkward voices but the book is good so it makes up for it

But they all make me laugh and listen again and again! So who cares

And as always gold star narration by Mr Lesley.

Another Snarky sassy book

Thoroughly entertaining as always. I love the sassy Snarky main characters of Alice's books.
How her brain works to come up with these books is beyond me, but I love the outcome. Keep them coming. 😍

All comedy, no depth

I love Alice Winters books because she’s got an amazing ability to write great characters, fun situations and witty funny dialogue, but still manage to maintain depth. However, this one was a little shallow and flippant. I think the narrator added to the shallow feel. He was awesome narrating TJ Klune’s Tales From Verania series which is comical, but in this story it made it all seemed a bit farcical. Still an ok story, but I’ll stick with Alice Winters’ other books.
