REVIEW : 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.
Color of You by C.S. Poe
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This book sat for a very long time on my currently reading list. I read it on-off, and last night I managed to finished it.
Let's just say, this one is sweet, with an insta-love vibes, and a classic body shame because of the old trauma. Low angst, no teary angst.
But I was kinda enjoyed it at some point because, hey, let's admit it, who wouldn't want to fall in love in 22 days before Christmas, right? Well, I want (*grins).
