Romance blooms as snowstorms brew.
Percy’s coffee stand in the tiny town of Hydrangea Hollow, Idaho never exactly brings in the big bucks. Just enough to float him through. Most of the time. But in the middle of a blizzard, any customer coming by is a shock. Doubly so when he comes up on foot. Triply so when he’s blonde, beefy, and utterly stunning. Since the local motel never has vacancy, it would be irresponsible for Percy not to invite him back home… right?
CJ certainly didn’t plan for his car to break down in a blizzard in the middle of nowhere, Idaho. But the slim, curly-haired barista who brings him in out of the cold is certainly a salve to his frustrations. One he definitely needs. As a public relations expert, he’s on his way across the country to clean up yet another disgusting mess for yet another company with more money than morals. And this job strikes a little too close to home.
The infatuation is undeniable. The lust is omnipresent. The hope is fragile as a snowflake. If Percy and CJ aren’t careful, it could shatter in a breath. But maybe, with enough care, it could carry them away like an avalanche. If you’re looking for a sweet, steamy Christmas read, Blizzards & Brews will do the trick.
I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed it.
Blizzards & Brews is a short holiday themed read with some steam. When a blizzard hit Percy invites CJ to spend the night in his house. They’re attracted to each another and things heat up quickly. I liked the story continues after that one night and shows the two of them growing closer after that and the hope that this could lead to more.
This is a nice one to pick up if you want a sweet and steamy holiday romance novella. It was long enough to get a feel for the characters, their situations and their romance. I would’ve liked to spend a bit more time with the characters and get to know them better. I also felt their romance progressed kinda quickly toward the end, but it was clear there was a connection between the two, I just would’ve liked to see it build a bit more. Besides the romance there is also a pot line about CJ’s work and a mess he had to clean up as well as a bit about Percy’s job.
To summarize: This was a short holiday themed read with some steam. It’s a nice read if you’re looking for something sweet and steamy. I went in with those expectations and enjoyed it, although I would’ve liked to get to know the characters a bit more and see their romance develop.
