When a funeral calls his friend Martin away, sunbelt resident Chris is left alone in Martin’s cabin in the dead of winter—and in a blizzard to boot. When the power goes out, Chris thinks he’s going to freeze to death. Luckily, Horace drops in to check on him—and then runs out after a few kisses, leaving Chris upset and feeling used. Horace does come back with explanations, ...more

Doing something completely out of character, like going to a place you've never been before, can lead to the most amazing results. All Phoenix-based Chris expected was a nice Christmas visit with his friend Martin and experiencing snow for the first time. Instead he ends up in the northern Wisconsin cabin on his own because Martin has to go to a funeral. And when a blizzard causes the power to fail, he is convinced he's going to die. Not a total impossibility, considering his lack of snow surviv ...more

This was a very sweet story about two men finding love over Christmas.
I really enjoyed the story, I just wished it was a bit longer.
I would have liked to get to know the characters a bit more.
I hope the author gives Martin a story as well, maybe he can do a Valentine’s Day novella!
Here is too wishful thinking!

I really really wanted to like this one more than I did.
Chris is pretty much alone in the world and so is Martin, his best friend from college, so he travels from warm and sunny Arizona to 'Snowbound in Nowhere' for Christmas with his friend.
Unfortunately Martin is taking care of family business and isn't there when Chris arrives and with Chris a snowstorm that knocks out the power.
Horace, I'm not sure if Hermit is the right word for him, he's 21 and very much al

I’m not one, normally, into the shorter stories but Andrew manages to weave a story of love, struggle, growth, and passion in just a few pages without leaving me disappointed with the length (not easy to do in my opinion) and, I think, my first 5 drops for a short.

The start of the holiday vacation for Chris sends him into a bit of a panic . . . snow, blizzard, and his friend isn’t there, but then the sexy red headed recluse down the road stops by to check on him and more than a holiday prayer i

Honestly, this book just made me feel like a creeper. When Chris first meets Horace, he's like this big, sexy alpha male who goes after what he wants.

Then he comes back later, and surprise! We find out he's actually this completely inexperienced 21 year old whose "Daddy Dearest" used to beat him for masturbating and one time getting caught with a dude.

And he kiiiiiiiiinda comes across as one of those kids who rode the "special" bus. And Chris talks to him like he is one. For example: 'Horace..

Sweet, but the insta-love was a little too much for me. Maybe if I had had a better feeling for them it would have felt more natural to me, and not quite so forced, and rushed.

There were parts of this I loved –the idea of Chris taking a trip from Arizona’s heat to meet his friend Martin in the snow and cold, ending up roughing it on his own when Martin has to go to a funeral and then can’t get back. I liked Chris himself, a little bitchy, a little dramatic but overall just a funny, nice guy.

The premise was great, being snowbound somewhere strange, not knowing anyone, no power, etc. It was Horace who stops by to make sure everything is okay. When I first read him, I a

I usually adore Andrew Grey stories but I really struggled with this one. I didn't like the main character, Chris. I felt like he was really whinny and I understand he was stuck in the middle of nowhere but his attitude was a bit too much for me.

I liked Horace but I had a lot of questions about him. He's so young yet he acted older than Chris (after that first incident). I actually felt really bad for him because he's so naive. Another reason I didn't like the story was it has a lot of sex. Wit

Ho Ho Ho

I haven't read anything else in the Evergreen series, but if they are half as fun and warm as this one by the great Andrew Grey, I would scoop them all up.

Here you have Chris, a fairly attractive but lonely guy from Phoenix, stuck in his best friend's home in Minnesota during a Christmas blizzard--with his friend unable to get back from a funeral in time to help him cope with the weather.

Here also you have Horace, a big young ginger cub who stumbles upon Chris' dilemma and takes it upon

After finishing "Redemption by fire" I picked this one but it wasn't as good. I think I simply didn't get why the two were attracted to each other, as if the author just assumed that we were to assume that, snap, they were. It's not about the (reduced) length because Grey did a much better job in Redemption in this sense, while in this case there was simply something missing. Also, I think Horace's characterization was lame - he considered himself stupid, why? He came through as naive rather tha ...more

Chris goes to visit his friend, Martin, for Christmas because he has never seen snow and because he is going to be alone over the festive period. When Martin has to go to a funeral, Chris finds himself alone anyway but when Martin's friend comes to check on him during a blizzard that changes. I couldn't help but like Horace; he was so sweet and eager to please but he also knew exactly what he wanted. Chris and Horace were two very different men but each was able to provide exactly what the other ...more

I'm, really, not impressed by this story. Emotionally, this story doesn't ring right or even true. The main storyline is rushed, bland and rings false.

I listened to this on audio book. It was a cute little Christmas story and a nice way to spend a couple of hours. City boy + country bumpkin + a bit of instalove and a good dash of sex. 3.5 stars

Chris is stranded in a blizzard. He’s been burned by love and is reluctant to get involved in a relationship anymore, but he’s lonely. While stranded, Horace the neighbor helps him survive. Within a couple hours the brusque Horace and the worldly Chris have had sex but it freaks Horace out and he flees.

Chris is a little heartbroken, but really, what did he expect from someone he knows next to nothing about? Fortunately(?), Horace returns and the two resume the relationship (if it can be called t

Andrew Grey is one of my favorite authors. He writes sweet and very romantic stories that I always seem to enjoy. Between his creative plotlines and his realistically written heroes, he’s one of my go-to authors when I need a little pick me up.

When Chris agreed to stay with Martin at his cabin for a couple of weeks, he had no idea what was in store for him. Martin had to leave on an emergency, leaving Chris alone and unprepared at how to take care of himsel

This review can be found at Brief Encounters Reviews.

This author tends to write sweet stories with likable guys, and this one is no exception. Chris agreed to travel from Arizona to Wisconsin to spend Christmas with his friend at his isolated cabin. However when a death in the family calls his friend away, he ends up at the cabin alone, in a snow storm, with no power. Neighbor Horace shows up to make sure he’s okay, and ends up staying. Before long the two are getting very friendly, however aft

Stranded in a blizzard at his best friend’s cabin, Chris is settling in for another lonely Christmas. That is until a neighbor stops by to make sure Chris is okay and gets stuck when his snowmobile won’t crank. Alone by the fire, bundled up to keep warm, one thing leads to another and before long, Chris and Horace no longer need the fire to keep warm. While Chris tries to tell himself he shouldn’t get involved, it’s hard when Horace has made up his mind that Chris is what he wants. Chris is dete ...more
Sweet story about finding love in the most unexpected place. Chris is visiting his friend, Martin, for Christmas in a quaint cabin in the woods. When Martin is delayed due to a funeral, Chris must "rough it" by himself. The arrival of a blizzard and no electricity brings even more torment for Chris, who lives in Phoenix and has never been around snow. Martin's neighbor, Horace, stops by to check on the house and he and Chris embark on a friendship fueled by a powerful connection.

A wonderful holiday novella to warm the heart, as if I expected anything less from Andrew Grey. I always love when an author shows respect for the winter weather from my home state of Wisconsin and the Upper Midwest, it can be dangerous on many levels so when a story is set here that is always a major factor for me and Snowbound in Nowhere respects it perfectly. As someone who has lived here from the day I was born, I don't fear the snow but I do respect it's dangers and Chris, as a stranger to ...more

Originally reviewed for The Book Vixen

Snowbound in Nowhere is the most sexual of the short novellas reviewed here and the emotional intimacy is obligatory only. Still, it’s a spicy story of two sexually combustible men snowed in a cabin that’ll have readers a tad hot under the collar too. Phoenix-raised Chris visits his friend’s cabin in snowy Wisconsin just in time to be snowbound inside. Horace is the taciturn neighbor who stops in to check on Chris and the two heat themselves through the stor

Wow, I had been anticipating the release of this book since I found out about it. I even did something I never, ever do....I put a book that I was already reading on hold to read this. I know, anal, but I can't help it. (no pun intended) lol

My decision to move this book to "read right now!" status was a great one. It's a sweet Christmas story and I enjoyed it immensely.

Mr. Grey definitely has another winner on his hands!

Reviewed by Brandilyn for Prism Book Alliance. A sweet holiday tale of insta-love where you least expect it. If you are a fan of Andrew Grey and Christmas novellas, Snowbound in Nowhere is a good combination for you. Chris and Horace are there to show us that not only can opposites attract, they can create heat and fire in the snow. Find the whole review at
