Snowballing (Snow Dates, #1) by Finn Dixon

Snowballing is sweet, spicy, s3xy, hot and steamy!! Age-gap, single dad, manny, with so much flirty banter, sass and snark! Such a seriously fun read!!

From the blurb:

A single dad. A flirty manny. A crafty kid. Do they stand a snowball’s chance in hell of a merry and bright future together?


It was literally the biggest d*ck I’d ever seen in person, and I started to question if my ass could handle it. But I didn’t quit drinking Diet Coke like I said I was going to last year and I wasn’t about to quit now either. After all, ten inches was a rare commodity these days.

It was supposed to be a one and done experience, so I was shocked when our paths crossed again - out of the bedroom.

I can’t remember the last time I felt a pull this strong, but I’d never dated a client before. Maybe this one’s too good to pass up?


Being a single dad pretty much means I have to schedule NSFW time and rely on a babysitter. It’s all part of my exciting life in finance with the now-added bonus of after-school hockey practices.

After my company rewards me with a trip to Hawaii, I'm on the hunt for a new kid-watcher. Based on my neighbor's recommendation, I'm introduced to Gareth - the last person I expected to see.

But the human mind is a funny thing because I don't see that as a problem. And neither does my c*ck.

Snowballing is a gay, rom-com, age gap, holiday novella with enough spice to season a whole gingerbread village. It features a dash of forced proximity, a blitzen of kink, a comet of forbidden romance, and of course, Finn’s fetish for jockstraps. There is snow in the book, but most of the white stuff contained herein isn’t cold and it isn’t falling from the sky in flake form. Snowballing is the first book in the Snow Dates series - an annual, kink-positive, holiday series about men falling in love with other men.

Janet's Review:

Snowballing is sweet, spicy, s3xy, hot and steamy!! Age-gap, single dad, manny, with so much flirty banter, sass and snark! Such a seriously fun read!! 

Eli, thirty-nine is at the top of his game in work and life. He’s raising his son Trey and has a great family and group of friends. Gareth is twenty-four and a successful entrepreneur in his own rights by running an OnlyFans account and being a manny. They meet as Jordy and Jayden for a one-off but are interrupted by Eli’s son. Oops! Eli feels bad how it ended, so he takes Gareth on a date. Their next meet up is when Eli’s neighbor is injured and he needs someone to keep an eye on Trey, so he hires Gareth, and they meet with their real names. Now it gets sweet and spicy. 

If you like a high spice level, then this is the book for you! I think my kindle caught on fire! I seriously adored, loved everything about this book! I could not stop flipping those pages! 

Overall, a fantastic holiday romance! Well written with addicting pacing! Highly recommend!

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

Now this is what I call an exciting holiday read! It was filled with sass, spunk, flirtatious banter, snarky remarks, and a preteen who’s not afraid to speak his mind! The single dad/manny vibe was hilariously entertaining and the smut scenes were spicy and filthy. I absolutely loved every second!!

Eli and Gareth were so enticing, their intimate scenes filled with so much steam and attentiveness. Finn does an incredible job with his descriptions of their acts, specifically that snowballing scene!! So hot I could feel my heartbeat in my southern regions, leaving a moistness that required immediate attention, which is exactly why I prefer MM written by men. Their descriptions are so accurate and filled with lust! 

“แดกแด‡สŸสŸ, แด…แด€แด…’๊œฑ ๊œฑแด›ษช๊œฐ๊œฐส แด›แด ๊œฑแด›แด€ส€แด›.”

I just want to take the time to show appreciation for the snide remarks from the beloved tween of the book, Trey. They’re just as bad as toddlers, never know what’s going to come out of their mouths ๐Ÿคฃ. But I did enjoy the instant connection between Gareth and Trey, making their new family dynamic a lot easier.
