One Snowy Night, Louise Lyons
Publisher: Wayward Ink Publishing
Genre: Gay Romance
Tags: Contemporary, Romance, Short Story
Main character, Keith Brambles, is an up and coming British singer. He has had one disastrous first date after another, finding most men are only interested because of who he is. After yet another failed meeting, he sets off for home, driving too fast for the conditions. He loses control of his car in the snow and finds himself stranded – with no mobile phone signal and an outfit completely unsuitable for braving the freezing conditions.
Just as Keith has begun to think he’s destined to spend a night in his car, possibly suffering from hypothermia, a potential rescuer arrives, but Keith wonders whether he might have more to fear from the man, than the weather.
Keith is returning home from a bad date, with a groupie who was only interested in his music, when he crashes his car and is stranded. It’s snowing and he has no signal on his mobile, so he can’t call anyone for help.
I liked Mike a lot. There was just something about him, something I liked. Keith was likable, too, but I don’t know why. Mike just stood out a little more to me. Maybe it was the physical appearance. All I know is I liked him straight away.
This is a short, easy read. I liked the characters and the story itself wasn’t bad. I also liked the fact Mike wasn’t a huge fan of Keith’s but he still recognized him. I would have liked more time with the characters. I would have liked to see what happened once the snow was gone and Keith was able to go home.
I think this is a nice story if you want a quick and easy read.
