ARC Review: Cold Feet, by Jay Northcote

From the blurb:

Best friends snowed in together. When the heat rises, will they get cold feet? Getting snowed in at a remote cottage in Wales with someone he’d fancied for ages isn’t exactly how Sam expected to spend Christmas. His feelings for Ryan are pointless. Ryan’s straight—or so he thought. Until now, Ryan’s kept his feelings for Sam buried. Why ruin a friendship over what might only be gay experimentation? Playing it cool seems safer, until a cold snap makes sharing body heat vital. In their Welsh safe haven, anything seems possible. As Ryan’s reserve melts away, Sam wants more than stolen kisses under the mistletoe. But a sudden thaw means making decisions. They could face the New Year together—unless one of them gets cold feet.

AnnaLund's rating:

Snow? Check.
Holiday spirit? Check.
Cute boys? Check.
Good writing? Check.
Add an amazing woman secondary character, and I’m in love. Brandy and all.

This story is just happiness, just like all the happy novellas this author is so good at writing.

Then, suddenly, there’s too much snow, and an old cottage that is very cold indeed. And we all know how to keep warm in cold climates, right? Yup.

Brandy, friendship, and laughter, and holiday dinners with the neighbor.

Interesting that while the story has all the parts that have been used in romance stories over and over for eons, it still never feels old; no, it feels fresh and new. Amazing storytelling.

So grab a blanket, make yourself a cup of tea and some cookies, and dive into the British sweetness. Watch the snow as it falls heavily in the hills of the Welsh countryside. And watch the boys fall, too, all over each other.

And enjoy. Just enjoy.


I was given a free ARC copy of this book from the author, and a positive review wasn’t promised in return.

Thank you for reading, hope you liked this review.
