Blurb: The west coast of Vancouver Island is one of the few places to boast world-class winter surfing, and Vancouverite Kellan Tremblay hits the waves as often as possible. On the ferry crossing to the island, he meets Australian Jax Colston. Jax is there for some snowboarding. He’s intrigued to discover that not only is winter surfing a thing, but you can surf and ski in the same day. Sensing a kindred spirit, Kellan offers to play tour guide and gives Jax a place to stay in his spare room.
The two men bond over all things surf and snow, and it isn’t long before their passion for life lands them in bed together. Neither wants the week of cold days and hot nights to end, but Jax has to go home soon. Still, Jax doubts he’ll stay away for long. The draw of fresh powder, the long hot nights and the thrill of just being with Kellan will keep him coming back for a long time….
World of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the globe.
When Canadian Kellan Tremblay meets Australian Jax Colston on a ferry crossing Strait of Georgia, the chemistry between them goes off the chart. Kellan tells Jax that he’s going winter surfing. On impulse, Jax decides to have a detour, goes with Kellan, and spends his time with the Canuck before heading back to Australia.
Well, the two men seem to hit it very quickly and nicely. This is a light and easy tell — there’s no big misunderstanding or heavy emotional play. Kellan takes Jax with a little sightseeing, they talk, they kiss, they get c*ckblocked a number of times, they have bonfires, Jax meets with Kellan friends, and so on … Unfortunately, it also ends up rather boring with all the light/happy flirting between Kellan and Jax. Not enough depth *shrugs*.
Having said that, I loved the location/setting. It was awesome to read about winter surfing… Kellan clearly has passion for it, and for a tropical girl like me, reading about how he does it, and the experience, is absolutely mesmerizing. I’m not sure I’ll ever try it. I hate cold. But strong claps for Kellan and his buddies!
Overall Impression: It was good
