Wicked Reads Reviews – Dreaming of Snow by Teodora Kostova

It’s been a year since Adam and Penn moved in together, and they’ve settled down into their comfortable new life together.

Only...not everything is as perfect as it seems.

Penn is a bit bored after quitting his job at Queen Victoria, and Adam can’t seem to find inspiration for his latest film script.

Jared and Fenix are about to spend their second Christmas in their new home in the picturesque city of Malmö, Sweden. With a beautiful new house and a successful dance studio to run, Jared and Fenix are happy and content.

Only...not everything is as perfect as it seems.

When Jared invites Adam and Penn to spend the holidays with them in Malmö, Adam reluctantly agrees. But the two weeks filled with Christmas shopping, delicious food, fragrant wine, playing in the snow and, most importantly, spending quality time with their closest friends, proves to be exactly what everyone needs.

Dreaming of Snow is about the characters of Dance and Mask, so reading this novella if you haven't read those books is not recommended.

This book follows Adam and Penn and Jared and Fenix, you should read Dance and Mask before reading this book. I just can’t say enough about this series, I love it so much. There is so much depth and feeling with these characters you feel like you are right there in the story. I loved Jared and Fenix in Dance, but I have a soft spot for Adam and Penn from Mask. I love all of these men. Adam and Penn have been living together almost a year but things aren’t going so well. Penn is bored and Adam can’t get his creative juices flowing. Jared and Fenix are now in Sweden and invite them to spend the holidays with them. Everything isn’t perfect with Jared and Fenix either. The two couples spend the holidays together and it was an amazing story. You found out what was going on and how things were resolved. I honestly loved this book and didn’t want it to end. I hope there is another book soon, I can’t wait to see what happens next with these couples.

Characters: The characters were well written and believable.
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes
Genre: M/M Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

This is the third in a series, and you would do yourself a great disservice if you didn't read them in order. That said, it is a lovely interlude in these couple's lives, so you would still enjoy it on its own – but be missing out on a lot of subtext.

Absolutely delicious story. I love these characters and was so happy that there was a Christmas novella bringing these two couples together. After all the stresses of the previous two books, a book like that this was the icing on the cake, with oodles of Christmas cheer for these incredibly hot, passionate guys. Ms. Kostova, you have excelled yourself, thank you!

Hi, my name is Teodora and I live in London with my husband and my son. I've been writing ever since I can remember, but it became my full time job a few years ago when I decided that everything else I've tried bores me to death and I have to do what I've always wanted to do, but never had the guts to fully embrace. I've been a journalist, an editor, a personal assistant and an interior designer among other things, but as soon as the novelty of the new, exciting job wears off, I always go back to writing. Being twitchy, impatient, loud and hasty are not qualities that help a writer, because I have to sit alone, preferably still, and write for most of the day, but I absolutely love it. It's the only time that I'm truly at peace and the only thing I can do for more than ten minutes at a time - my son has a bigger attention span than me.

When I'm procrastinating, I like to go to the gym, cook Italian meals (and eat them), read, listen to rock music, watch indie movies and True Blood re-runs. Or, in the worst case scenario, get beaten at every Nintendo Wii game by a kid.

Don't be shy and get in touch - I love connecting with my readers.
