Snow Balls by Tara Lain


JJ LaRousse looks like a quarterback but acts like a queen. He’s trying to be proud of who he is—until a robbery at the famous Laguna Winter Fantasy brings JJ face-to-face with tough cop Ryan Star. JJ hears Ryan likes manly men, so he drops his voice an octave, colors his pink hair, and tries to pass as a football fan.

Ryan Star may be tough, but he keeps his sexuality to himself at work. He learned in New York that being a gay cop can be deadly. His attraction to JJ threatens his secret, but he’s finding it hard to back away from a guy who’s so totally his type. Then, during a ski trip and a confrontation with JJ’s biggest nemesis, all the façades come crashing down. In the aftermath, can Ryan love JJ for who he really is? More importantly, can JJ?

Angie☆☆☆☆☆
I really like this series. It is low on angst and high on love and emotions. JJ and Ryan are so cute together. They both like each other instantly, even though JJ is pretending to be someone he isn't. Once Ryan knows the truth, he reevaluates his outlook. This was a fast-paced story, like I said low on angst and full of love. We see several of the characters from previous books, which was nice, even if it was briefly. Sweet holiday read on a cold afternoon.


Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the sixth in this fun series, and an excellent addition to the set. It was good to get little cameos from previous romances as well, although you could definitely read this as a standalone and enjoy it.

In spite of the lightness, and fun, there are issues to overcome in these books, and this is no different. Ryan has transferred to the police force from NY, where his openness about his sexual orientation had him nearly killed. He is not surprisingly, nervous of being open here too. So when JJ makes him feel all kind of interested, he is very nervous of acting on the chemistry. JJ has his own issues to deal with too – so it is fascinating watching everything slot into place. ;-)

Perfect read for a long winter evening, or anytime really. Thank you, Ms. Lain, for another winner.
