Color of You by C.S. Poe

Bowen Merlin— yes, that’s his real name—accepts a position in the quaint town of Lancaster, New Hampshire, as the high school band director. He leaves New York City for the snowy countryside of New England just in time for the holidays. With class, homework, after-school activities, and a surprise Christmas concert to plan and rehearse, Bowen is plenty busy. And since he’s never had much luck with romance, factoring in time to find Mr. Right isn’t a priority…

Until he meets the proprietor of Snowy Ridge Apple Orchard, Felix Hansen. Suddenly, true love seems like a possibility for the first time in Bowen’s life. The two are a perfect match and fill the skipped beats of each other’s hearts. But as wonderful as Felix seems, he’s harboring scars that could end their budding relationship when someone in town goes to great lengths to sabotage their careers.

If Bowen is to survive the holidays, he’ll need to lean on old friends and new, convince Felix he’s worth any hardship, and prove they can come out of the catastrophe stronger if they do so together.

Bowen Merlin moves to a small town in New Hampshire in December to take a new job as a music teacher. He meets orchard owner Felix when he accidentally drops hot cider all over him.

When it comes to romance, people judge Bowen to be a certain way based on his appearance. But appearances can be deceiving. Bowen is dominant and wants to be in a relationship where he can take the lead, but he has had trouble finding the right guy. He pursues Felix and the attraction between them is strong. Inside the bedroom, they are so good it was enough to make my body feel like it had turned to jelly. Outside the bedroom, they are quickly falling in love with each other while I was falling in love with them.

This is a really good, solid romance full of great conversations, characters, and relationships. There is more to the story than the romantic relationship though. We spend time with Bowen while he makes a new life for himself in Lancaster, including seeing what a great teacher he is and see him making new friends.

I totally adored Color of Love. While it is a novel set at Christmas, it is a great book to read at any time of year.
