A Fortunate Blizzard by L.C. Chase

This is how you do insta-love. Create characters that the readers fall in love with instantly and the rest seems possible. Trevor and Marcus sizzle from the start. The heat in this book was scorching hot, but the soft tender moments were just as prominent. From the synopsis you know that Trevor is ill, and this story doesn't pull any punches when it comes to the realities of what that means for him and sadly what it means for a budding relationship that seemed like it was written in the stars.
Trevor and Marcus's story was heartbreaking and heartwarming all at the same time. The text was well written and L.C. Chase did a good job in such a limited amount of pages to bring the heart and heartache to life. If this was a full length novel of 350 pages or so, I am sure Chase would have ripped out our hearts and sewed the pieces back together with strings of popcorn. Something Trevor says several times, that the things they were doing were so domestic, but something he knew he would and could never have because of his illness. Just the act of the two men stringing popcorn and making Christmas ornaments was touching. It truly melted my heart and I'm a cynic when it comes to love.
If you can hold back the tears and read to the end, you'll be glad you did
