REVIEW: “A Fortunate Blizzard” by LC Chase

ABOUT:

There are worse things than being stranded in a blizzard.

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.

REVIEW:

Few things I love more than a tug-at-your-heartstrings holiday story and a stranded-by-a-blizzard romance. The combination of the 2 is a surefire win for me.

I adored this.

I immediately fell in love with both Trevor and Marcus. They both start at such a lonely and SAD (oh, so sad) place in life. Trevor finds out that he has limited time left due to failing kidneys. And Marcus is a workaholic who is to this day trying to please the mother who kicked him out for being gay. From the get-go, I was anxious for them to meet each other and make LIFE BETTER for the other. That’s the fairy tale, right?

RIGHT!

When a brutal blizzard strands both of them at a hotel for the night, it’s a chance for them to forget the lives they each are living and get lost in the attraction between them. The flirtation was sweet and endearing. The need that each of them had for connection, both physically and emotionally, ugh…I just FELT it as I was reading. It hurt. I kept hoping…hoping for them to be able to get more. More time……..

 

Constantly having the clock ticking down in the back of my mind, Trevor’s clock for his limited time to live…I had a continuous anxiety and sense of dread throughout most the book. I knew it would all work itself out in the end (I’d be having some serious words with LC Chase if it hadn’t!), but I just wasn’t sure HOW it would…and that made me fret! I was pleading in my head for Marcus to be the knight in shining armor and save Trevor!

Come to find, as it does in best parts of romance stories, they actually save each other.

*sigh*

*heart expands*

*big smile on face*

Ok, so it’s cheesy. But this one manages to be…bearably cheesy.

Truth be told, I didn’t love all the other characters. And some of the family and coworkers stuff just got in the way. And the lead up to the ending and the ending itself was all a bit much. BUT…

…I liked the characters of Trevor and Marcus so much, not much else mattered. The epilogue was a perfect ending and I can file this one away with the rest of those holiday romances that I adore so much.
