Review: Once in a Snowstorm (Nortown #1) by Ofelia Gränd

Once in a Snowstorm (Nortown, #1)


Daring a snowstorm might not be the smartest thing Aiden has ever done, but he can’t stand being in his flat a moment longer. With only three days to Christmas, he doesn’t want to be alone. He wants a place to belong, wants people around him who won’t look down on him. He might not find all that at his mother’s place, but at least it’s better than being alone in the city. If he can make it there, that is.

Tristan is looking forward to a quiet night in front of the TV, but instead, he has to save an idiot in designer clothes from freezing to death in his forest. Tristan tries not to notice the man’s good looks, just like he has tried not to notice any man’s good looks for the last seven years. He knows where relationships go and is far better off living alone, with his dog, in his cabin.

Aiden is driving Tristan mad with his bratty comments and irresponsible ways, and Aiden is going crazy from Tristan’s judgmental attitude. Luckily, in a few days, the weather will clear up, and the two men won’t have to be together any longer. But will a few steamy nights with the grumpy lumberjack change Aiden’s mind about wanting to leave? And will Tristan still want to go back to his peaceful, predictable life without fear of getting his heart broken?


This was such a fun book to read, I really enjoy it. I have some serious doubts at the beginning, I wasn’t liking it at all, I have some trouble getting myself into the story, but once I was there, it was so good.

Aidan…I had a lot of feelings about this particular character. He was so outstandingly annoying, which ended up being a good thing, but when I start reading the book, I just couldn’t stand him. As I keep reading, I begin to care for him and his attitude became rather funny. It bother me how he always assume the worst of every person, but I guess It was understandable. I got to appreciate how mad he made me but, then, he also had some sweet moments, I really liked him.

Tristan was nice. I think he could have come out as a flawless character, but he wasn’t. He had a lot of little imperfections that made him great, I love when a character is not perfect, I can’t stand when they do nothing wrong, it seemed unrealistic and that’s why I liked him so much.

The plot was ok, a bit expected, but still very enjoyable. The personalities of the main characters save it for me, they were lovely together. It was really funny.
Overall a great and funny story, It can be easily enjoy by any reader, it’s free of angst.
