Title: Winter
Author: M.Raiya
Genre: LGBTQIA Romance
Rating :3
Outwardly happy with his life, inwardly Aster longs for a dom of his own: someone he can trust with his heart, body, and soul. Then while in Montreal, in the midst of a snowstorm, he meets a mysterious man, Vanor, who seems like a dream come true. He gives Aster the safe word 'winter' and their night together seems made of magic. But over breakfast the next morning, Vanor literally vanishes before his eyes. Shocked and confused, Aster returns helplessly home to Vermont.

Months later, Vanor appears on his balcony, naked and half-frozen, in the midst of a snowstorm. Shortly after, two men appear and snatch Vanor away—with dire threats of punishment if he escapes again, and Aster soon finds himself dragged into a world most humans are not supposed to know exists

My thoughts
Would I recommend it? Yes, but only to the ones who read  these types of books.
Would I read anything else by this author? Yes
First off I should say that this is an  LGBT QIA fantasy romance (m/m) and since it does have BDSM in the story it's also an erotic romance, so if you're not into that type of romance then this might not be for you. As for the story itself the author tells an  intriguing tale with flowing sensual prose, and intriguing characters. But there were times that the story felt a bit slow, and the world building while the idea was cool in its own way, it felt that there need to be a bit more to it. But overall I did enjoy the story as well as the characters. With that said I want to thank NetGalley for letting me read and review it .
