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....

If there’s one thing that I really enjoy as a reader, it’s when the setting of the book is as much a part of the story as the story itself and boy is that ever the case in Waves of Winter by LC Chase! Set off the west coast of Vancouver Island, Waves of Winter is a treat for anyone who loves vivid imagery. Plus, who knew winter surfing was a thing?? I know I sure didn’t before reading this book! The characters are pretty fabulous too, lol. Kellan and Jax are charismatic, sexy, and fun and I really enjoyed watching these two meet and their relationship develop.
As a novella, the book moves fairly quickly so there’s not a lot of time spent on back story’s and character development, but you do get a pretty good sense of what makes both Jax and Kellan tick. Surfing for one, being outdoors for another. I really enjoyed how their personalities just seemed to mesh right from the get-go. There is a lot of flirting, which was cute, but it did seem to drag on a bit much as well as all the interruptions but all in all the romance was sweet and swoony.
If you’re in the mood for a quick read with some gorgeous scenery with no angst and lots of fluff and good feelings, then you definitely need to check out Waves of Winter. I know it left me with a smile on my face and I bet it does for you, too!
