Author: Sean Michael
Publisher: Amber Allure
Characters: Jaxsom (Jax), Dave

Ten years ago, Jaxsom left town and his lover Dave, following his whim and his art through booze and alcohol. Now Jax is back, sober and clean, and with a wad of cash in his back pocket from the sale of a dozen works of art.
A chance meeting earns Jax an invitation back to Dave’s place for dinner, and soon, one thing leads to another. Now that Jax is clean, will Dave want to rekindle their romance? And if so, can Jax find a way to have his art and Dave, too?
I know I’m in for a treat when I pick up a book written by Sean Michael. He writes hot, steamy romances that will warm you up on a cold winter’s day. Art and Snowflakes is a sweet, sexy and fast-paced read that will definitely keep you warm on a chilly night.
After ten years of absence, Jax, has returned to his hometown. When he spots his former lover, Dave, at a bus stop, he immediately follows him. Although Dave is very surprised to see the love of his life sitting by him on the bus, he’s thrilled when Jax agrees to come home with him while they get reacquainted with each other.
What follows are some smoking hot love scenes and a sweet reunion of two lovers that never really forgot one another. Because Jax is an artist and as well as a recovering alcoholic and drug addict, he and Dave have some issues from the past they have to work through. Jax is a whirlwind of creativity and he’s very spontaneous. He never sticks at one place long, but there is something about Dave that makes him feel like he’s home. On the other hand, Dave is stable and enjoys his life. He never stopped loving Jax and although his life was difficult years ago because of Jax’s drug addiction, he focuses on the good times they had and hopes that Jax will one day settle down with him.
Both characters are interesting people. Jax is a little flighty, outspoken and very creative. Dave is an all-around nice guy who has never forgotten his first love. Art and Snowflakes is a sexy story about having a second chance at love. There are several things that were left unsaid at the end of the book that left me a little confused, but all in all I really enjoyed the chemistry between the two heroes and hope that their HFN ending will one day be a HEA.
