Publisher's Summary

Indie Walker started college with a basketball scholarship and a plan to stay focused on his studies. His roommate and best friend Daniel is one of the most popular guys on the wrestling team. When a power outage during a winter storm forces them to get closer than ever before just to survive the night, their relationship changes forever. Neither are gay but the physical chemistry they have is undeniable. Unfortunately, Daniel's issues at home might be too severe for them to overcome.

    "Solid Gay for You type story."
    What did you love best about Winter Chill?

    I really enjoyed seeing the story through Indie's eyes as he navigated his newly discovered sexuality.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Daniel's quick turn around.


    What about Michael Pauley’s performance did you like?

    That slight Wisconsin drawl in his voice that seemed to fit the area the story was set in perfectly.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It was just a fast, fun read.


    Any additional comments?

    Andrew ‘Indie’ Walker has never had a girlfriend, but he’s never given any thought to the possibility of being gay. When a winter storm forces him to share body heat, and a bed with his handsome roommate Daniel, Indie starts to realize that he is attracted to Daniel on a personal level. The two decide to accompany each other home for the holidays, first to Daniels home where late night walk in the park leads to their first kiss, a heated exchange up against picnic table. But Daniels destructive home life soon gets in the way and Indie flees to his own home town, fearing he’s not only lost his best friend, but lost something he can’t put a name to just yet.

    I was pleasantly surprised at just how much content this short story contained. Grace and Hunter give the reader detailed insight into both young men’s lives and emotions. My favorite aspect to this story was the inner monologue for Indie. Andrew Walker, lovingly dubbed Indie by his little sister who couldn’t pronounce his name, is a very confused young man. The story is told through his eyes as he navigates his ever growing feelings for his best friend. A virgin who has never been kissed, much less had a sexual experience with a guy or a girl, Indie slowly comes to terms with the fact that not only is he gay, he is in love with Daniel.

    My only issue with the story was how quickly Daniel went from adamantly proclaiming, I’m not gay, to I love you and can’t live without you. Perhaps it was because the focus of the narration was with Indie, but I didn’t quite get the mind change for Daniel. Regardless I was so engrossed in this story about roommates and best friends turned lovers over Winter break. Narrated by Michael Pauley who either has the accent with that slight Wisconsin drawl as an undertone, or he adapted it flawlessly for this story. The tones and inflections he chose for the characters were perfect for their part in the story.

    Short, sexy and steamy while being well written, full of content and perfectly told by Pauley. If you are a fan of Gay for you type stories, young love, and stories about discovering who you are then you’ll surely enjoy this book.

    "Short and Sweet"

    When a Winter storm hits the area, freezing temperatures and no electricity inside the dorm room is a great reason to cuddle up in bed together to stay warm. At least that's what Indie was thinking and although embarrassed, freezing alone in his bed by himself wasn't an option, so he asks if he can get in his bed and Daniel says yes! I love GFY stories. In this one, It's the start of holiday break and most of the campus is heading home. Daniel has promised to spend a few extra days while Indie is stuck waiting until he can get a flight out. Choosing to go home with Daniel and fly out from there, things start to heat up between the roommates!
    Such a sweet story. A little short, but still lots of development of the characters and their lives outside the college made for a fun and flirty read! The narration was top notch!

    Story
    "Great GFY and narrator"

    Indie and Daniel are roommates at college. When Christmas break rolls around a snow storm moves in essentially trapping the two in the dorms. They become closer to one another first as friends then begin to explore a more physical side of their relationship.

    Indie is sure he isn’t/can’t be gay, though Daniel is more willing to embrace the idea. However, when something happens between Indie and Daniel’s evil step-mother to drive the two apart, the alone time makes both boys realize they want more from their relationship.

    **

    This is a very sweet, a little bit sexy, first time for both boys, GFY/OFY novella.
    I liked that the boys mostly spoke with one another as you’d expect, for their age. I thought the step-mother thing was a bit too melodramatic to be believable, but it served its purpose.

    I really, really liked the narration by Michael Pauley. He did an excellent job with giving the boys a distinctive flavor and the emotions and smexy times were handled very well.

    "LOVE"

    This story captures the love that every young gay man wishes to have. I love this book so much. Daniel and Indie will forever be one of my favorite couples.
