Blurb: Be careful what you wish for…
Nate has been in love with Quinn, his brother’s best friend, for as long as he can remember. But when he finally gets the chance to show Quinn how he feels, his heart gets broken in the most unexpected way.
Second chances come when you least expect them…
Quinn doesn’t believe in miracles, especially not Christmas ones. When he decides to win Nate back he knows it won’t be easy. The last thing he expects is a health scare, a road trip and a vicious snow storm to work in his favor.
In the end, a cabin in the woods turns out to be not only the shelter they desperately need, but also Quinn’s very own Christmas miracle.
Sometimes, to forgive, you need to get snowed in…
Review: Teodora Kostova is a new-to-me author, and I really liked the writing style. However, I did have some issues with the characters, which I hope I can explain without spoiling the book. I adore holiday stories and second chance stories, too, so this one really could have been the icing on the cake for me.
I adored Nate and was really hoping the heartbreak mentioned wasn’t too terrible. In spite of, or maybe because of, his age, I really felt for him when things didn’t go quite the way he planned. I actually kinda hated Quinn there for a bit, and hoped he had a good excuse for what happened with Nate.
However, it was not to be. And I really began to dislike Brandon, Nate’s brother, for a bit there, too. I was a bit disappointed with Quinn’s reasoning, and was behind Nate’s anger entirely when Quinn comes prancing back into Nate’s life. I had hoped Nate would make Quinn work on redeeming himself more, but he caved entirely too early for my tastes. Perhaps I am a bit vindictive, but Quinn deserved whatever Nate chose to dish out to him, and then some.
Since this is a holiday tale, though, the happily-ever-after was given with some detriment to the storyline, in my opinion. However, I will seek out more of this author’s work at a later date.
