Snowed In is the “romance author in a cabin” story, with a threesome twist. You have read at least one of those stories featuring romance authors needing creative boosts and hiding out in cabins. And romance authors still wonder why we believe that they live out their sex scenes or that their books are all about sex, when they are among the first in line to portray their own career in such a manner in their own stories, heh.
Kasey, a journalist, moonlights as an author of gay romances. He’s gay. Mitch, his colleague, is bisexual. Warren, another colleague of Kasey, falls under the “not sure… yet” category. These three self-professed best friends hole up in a cabin one winter vacation, where it predictably snows heavily and the three friends are forced to look at each other all the time. Any respectable reader of smutty stories will know what will happen next.
I hope this very short story, high on titillation factor to the exclusion of pretty much everything else, is good for you. Me, my eyes are nearly crossed permanently from the effort of figuring out whose body parts are in whose orifices.
