Minnesota Christmas, Book 3
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.
Contains erotic snow art, toppy twinks, and super-sweet holiday moments. Best savored with a mug of hot chocolate with a dash of spice.
When I am feeling down or need a pick-me-up, Heidi Cullinan is one of my go-to authors whose stories always leave me with a light heart and a happy smile on my face. One of the reasons why I love Ms. Cullinan’s books is because she writes likeable, yet flawed heroes that live and breathe off of the written page. Also, Ms. Cullinan mixes just the right amount of sweetness, sexiness and angst in her books that keeps her readers coming back time and time again.
Winter Wonderland is the third book in her Minnesota Christmas stories and in my opinion, it’s the best in the series so far. I’ve always had a soft heart for all of her characters in this series, but Paul has always been one of my favorites in the stories. I was thrilled to learn more about him and see the walls he has so carefully built around him, crumble down from Kyle’s tender love and care. As I read this story, it was easy to see that these two men truly belong together and I found myself really rooting for them to find their happy ending together.
Their happy ending doesn’t come easily but when it does it is truly a beautiful thing to read. Winter Wonderland has everything I love when it comes to reading romance and more. Between the sexy heroes and their hot chemistry together, it is definitely going to have a spot on my keeper shelf.
If you are looking for a well-written, feel-good and sexy holiday romance, then Winter Wonderland should be added to your must read list. Even though Winter Wonderland could be read as a stand-alone book in the series, I highly recommend reading all of the books in series order. Believe me when I say that you will fall in love with all of the characters and their stories will keep you warm on a cold winter’s night.
