Rating: 4.5 of 5 Stars


Desperate to win a neighborhood snowman contest, Trey pulls out all the stops. He and his boyfriend, Landon, work all morning to make a snowman along the lines of Michelangelo’s David. Unfortunately, all does not go well, and the two break up over Trey’s relentless perfectionism. Struggling to take a nap that afternoon, Trey is awakened by the sound of someone in his house. He goes downstairs to find the snowman has come to life – and he’s horny!

Lirtle’s View:

So. Trey. He likes things as he likes them, including snow, and snowmen, especially when a contest is involved.

Landon, his boyfriend of six months is not so… exacting. Landon would rather laze away the morning with some cuddling and some sexing. Trey would rather build a winning snowman. He needs to win.

Trey gets his way. Landon helps. Until…

I have to admit, I know people like Trey, everything having to be in its proper place, all of the time. Pursing my lips at his chosen focus, I continued reading.

And then? Hee! And then?? Snort!! Trey had met his match.

I took a step back. “Frozen pipes are actually a very expensive problem.”

“Why don’t we go to your bedroom and you can check my plumbing?”

G’head, I dare ya’ not to snort while reading about Trey and his Snow David. I dare ya’!

There are so many fantastic one-liners and winning inner thoughts, all filtered through the unexpected guest of Trey’s. I couldn’t get enough, still can’t. I’m fighting against the temptation to share more with you, but you very much deserve to read them for the first time yourself in context. 😉

This is how you tell a short story. This is how you make someone, make me smile. And snort. And giggle, and happily roll my eyes at the word play, including the title. Clever, this is.

I definitely recommend this silly and intelligent holiday treat, whether or not you love snow as much as Trey. 😉
