Finding Mr. Right can be a snow lot of fun.
Paul Jansen was the only one of his friends who wanted a relationship. Naturally, he’s the last single man standing. No gay man within a fifty-mile radius wants more than casual sex.
No one, that is, except too-young, too-twinky Kyle Parks, who sends him suggestive texts and leaves X-rated snow sculptures on his front porch.
Kyle is tired of being the town’s resident Peter Pan. He’s twenty-five, not ten, and despite his effeminate appearance, he’s nothing but the boss in bed. He’s loved Paul since forever, and this Christmas, since they’re both working on the Winter Wonderland festival, he might finally get his chance for a holiday romance.
But Paul comes with baggage. His ultra-conservative family wants him paired up with a woman, not a man with Logan’s rainbow connection. When their anti-LGBT crusade spills beyond managing Paul’s love life and threatens the holiday festival, Kyle and Paul must fight for everyone’s happily ever after, including their own.
Warning: Contains erotic snow art, toppy twinks, and super-sweet holiday moments. Best savored with a mug of hot chocolate with a dash of spice.
5 Stars to this Winter Wonderland Happily Ever After
Author Heidi Cullinan finishes this series strong with a great love story and more!!
In Book One Let It Snow we met the three bears of Logan Minnesota, Marcus, Arthur, and Paul – and got to watch as Marcus and Frankie fall in Love. Then in Book two, Sleigh Ride we watch bear number two Arthur as he falls in love with Gabriel while playing Santa and elf for the town library. So now it is only fitting that in this book we get to watch and experience Paul’s happily every after.
Out of Paul’s friends he is the last one who is single at the start of this book. He has watched as his two best friends have found and fallen in love with their soul mates and he desperately craves what they have. While Paul isn’t sitting at home and knitting sweaters waiting for Mr. Perfect to land on his doorstep, no he is sampling the men from neighboring towns; however, this is not satisfying his craving and yearning for love and stability. Then he finds his front porch with snow sculptures on it from an admirer, penis sculptures. Paul finds out that those penis sculptures have come from a local man, Kyle, who Paul feels is way too young for him and a bit on the effeminate side.
Kyle is a 25 year old man who knows what or who he wants and that is a stable, real relationship with a man like Paul.. maybe not like Paul.. but actually Paul. He realizes after examining his feelings he has always had a bit of a crush on Paul and maybe its time to act on it..
I have to admit this was my favorite book of the three in the series. I really enjoyed watching Kyle and Paul fall in love and the way Kyle may have appeared to soft for Paul.. but as it turns out he is bit toppy and exactly what Paul needs.
I loved the way Kyle was with his family and especially the relationship between him and his sister who has Downs Syndrome. This story was full of “feel-good” vibes that just made you want cry as your heart ached with joy.
Note: This book is book 3 in a series and these books can be read as standalone. I would however recommend reading them in order to enjoy them to the fullest.
