Artist Trevor Morrison has always appreciated the little things in life, treating each day as a gift. And with good reason: he’s been on the transplant-recipient list for too long now. When he learns just how numbered his days truly are, he resolves not to take them for granted. But he won’t be unrealistic, either—which means romantic commitments are off the table.

Marcus Roberts seems to have it all. He’s handsome, financially sound, and on the fast track to partnership at a prestigious law firm. In reality, though, his drive for success has meant no time for friends or relationships. Add in the fact that his family discarded him long ago, and he’s facing yet another holiday season alone.

When the biggest snowstorm to hit Colorado in decades leaves Marc and Trevor stranded at the same hotel, a chance encounter and a night of passion leads to more than either of them expected. Finding comfort in each other is a welcome surprise, but time is not on their side. Either they find a way to beat the odds, or they lose each other forever.

This was perfectly nice. I enjoyed it. It was a little insta-something. Definitely lust, which is never a problem for me. But then it went further into lovey-town a smidge too soon for my taste.

As for the medical issues? You can tell Ms. Chase did her research. The reason I wasn’t boo-hoo’ing all over my Kindle like some, I think, is that I’m in healthcare, I’ve taken care of patients with illnesses like Trevor, and so I’m a little more immune to the feelz that this book brought out in others.

That’s right – I’m apparently the Grinch of the readers of this book. Shrug.

I struggled a little because I felt the writing was a little two-dimensional. I wanted some more depth. The story, itself, was compelling. I just wanted MORE from the author. It stayed in the land of fluff for me. Which is perfectly fine for a lot of readers. And even me when I’m in the mood for fluff.

Lots of readers loved this one, and I did like it. I just didn’t love it. For a holiday read when you’re looking for a pick-me-up, I’d say give this one a go.
