A Lila Review: Cold Like Snow by Sita Bethel

Standard

Rating: 3.5 stars out of 5

When René moves into his new home, he didn’t expect it to come with roommates. Two handsome roommates, to be precise. Too bad they’re ghosts.

The fact that they’re dead doesn’t stop them from running their fingers through René’s hair or tackling him onto the bed. It’s not long before things escalate and René finds himself with two ghost lovers that treat him better than any living partner ever has.

However, they can’t eat, can’t go far from the house where they died, and their fingers feel like icicles against René’s skin. The longer René is with them, the more he can sense them, but nothing can reduce the chill of their bodies against his. Still, it might be worth the hypothermia.

Cold Like Snow is an erotic discovery between a ghost couple and their new roommate. The start is a bit rush and René’s acceptance came out too quick for my taste. I wanted the teasing and the UST to last longer. A slow build up to learned more about the characters. I needed more of a reason for their easy relationship. Perhaps a strong reason behind René buying the house.

I’m glad the communication part took time, and I enjoyed their easy banter and rapport. Their sense of humor and possessiveness felt real, giving a starting point to their relationship. And May added the outside world to their day-to-day.

Some of the explanations about Bastion and Marcus were as unbelievable as ghosts but they worked with the overall story. The ending makes sense and I would love to know more beyond it…no pun intended. 🙂

The cover by Natasha Snow is simple but it shows the heart of the story.
