Can a man pretend to find true love?

Big, handsome, and hunky, JJ LaRousse looks like an alpha male but acts like an interior decorator. And he's trying to be happy about it--until a robbery at the famous Laguna Winter Fantasy brings JJ face-to-face with tough cop, Ryan Star. JJ hears Ryan likes guys who are manly men, so he drops his voice an octave, colors over his pink hair, and tries to pass as a football fan. After all, his father always said he should be more macho.

Ryan Star may be tough, but he hides in the closet at work. He learned in New York that being a gay cop can cost you your life. His attraction to the big, handsome JJ threatens his anonymity, but he can't seem to resist. JJ is just his type. But when JJ goes skiing and comes face to face with his greatest nemesis, all the secrets come out of the closet. Can Ryan love JJ for who he really is? More importantly, can JJ?

I love this series, and was really excited for the next installment to be released.  However, I didn’t quite feel the same magic as the previous stories.  The chemistry was hot, and the characters endearing, but the connection between JJ and Ryan felt a little forced at times, though that could simply be attributed to the strain among them due to secrets. Ryan’s character felt pretty authentic and while I thought he should give a little when it came to coming out, I understand his hesitation.  JJ’s character didn’t quite have the same feel.  He struggled with being ok with who he was, but at the same time seemed like he should’ve been more comfortable and confident because it was such a presence within him.  Granted, I do appreciate that part of his struggle came from trying to be what he thought Ryan wanted, but that just made me want to smack him haha! Ultimately another great story from Tara Lain with cameos from past characters.  I hope in future installments we see more of these two, as well as others, and there are a few characters that look like they might be a potential focus for future stories :D! A perfect mixture of fun, sweet, and downright hot, Snow Balls is a great read for any time of year, but especially shines in the Christmas season!

Reviewed by FRANCESCA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog It got my attention from the very beginning and didn’t let me pull my ereader down. ~Under the Covers There is just something about this series that I always enjoy. The characters and storylines are always fun. They’re not long stories, but usually once I start them I can’t put them down until they are finished. And SNOW BALLS was no different. It got my attention from the very beginning and didn’t let me pull my ereader down. A few reasons why…I thought JJ was adorable. I just wanted him to be my friend and hand out with me. His character was so conflicted because he’s a little…flaming, for lack of a better word. All fluttering hands, giiiiiiiirl let me tell you about it, and into interior design. Works at the art gallery and on occasion likes to dye his hair pink. Nothing much manly about him, except his size. He’s built like a football player which is why the guys he’s with are always putting him in the dominant role of their relationship. But he wants the opposite, someone to take care of him for a change. So when Ryan Star shows up, a cop who just moved from New York, and sparks start flying, Ryan decides that he’ll pretend to be very macho to catch Ryan’s attention. It goes to show that you should always be yourself, but also that thanks to that chance JJ took, he was able to find love and make a difference, not only in his life, but also Ryans’. Ryan is the hero most women die to read about. All bad ass cop, with some emotional issues and hang ups, the kind of tough guy you want to fix. Except he’s so very interested in JJ even though he made it a rule not to play around with anyone in the vicinity of where he works. See, he got put back in the closet after something bad happened back in New York. And yes, there is just something way too hot about a guy in a uniform with guns. Their relationship develops slowly and builds on their attraction and trust. I thought they had great chemistry and complemented each other perfectly. And don’t get me started on their physical chemistry because there were no problems in that department. Now if I could only make one request……PLEASE GIVE JERRY A BOOK. He needs one, he deserves one, I’m dying to read his HEA.
