Publisher's Summary

There are two sides to every story. When you're Tim Wyman, sometimes there are three.
Tim hoped moving to Texas would mean a new beginning, but he soon finds himself falling into the same tired patterns. Until he meets recklessly brave Benjamin Bentley, who introduces Tim to a world of love, sex, and warmth. Certain that society won't understand what he and Ben have together, Tim struggles to protect their relationship, even if it means twisting the truth. Buried beneath his own deceptions, Tim must claw his way to the surface in the hopes of learning to fly.
Something Like Winter, the companion novel to Something Like Summer, tells the story from Tim Wyman's perspective, revealing new private moments and personal journeys.

First, let me start off by stating that I was very apprehensive about reading/listening to this second installment offered by Jay Bell. I absolutely adored and cherished Something Like Summer and I was so afraid that the next book might tarnish my mental images of Ben, Tim, and took me over six months before I began the second part of this journey...but I was so wrong!!

So I began listening to the book on the treadmill at the gym, filled with anxiety and let me just say this...Jay Bell is an evil, evil person. Deliciously evil, that is!! Not to spoil anything, but I literally stumbled and fell off the treadmill as I listened to the first part of the story...evil I tell you (saying with a smile). Suffice it to say, I loved listening to Tim's perspective of the story and it only added pleasurable images to what was already in my head. Many of the holes (that I didn't even realize existed) from the first book were filled in and then to continue the story to a fantastic conclusion was exceptional. A great story and great continuation. I will state again, that Jay Bell's writing is exceptional and the narration by Kevin R. Free was spot on. I am looking forward to the next installment, Something Like Autumn.

I seriously recommend this book!!!

Great Story

What did you love best about Something Like Winter?

I had no idea this was going to be Tim's side of the same story I read in Something Like Summer (which quickly became one of my favorite books) What a great way to relive it through the eyes of the other main character.

What aspect of Kevin R. Free’s performance would you have changed?

Unfortunately, this is the one part of the book that bothered me. A lot of the characters sounded cartoonish. (Aaron and Tim's live-in boyfriend... I forget his name... sounded SO gay that it was almost offensive. Tim's grandmother sounded like Speedy Gonzales and adult Tim sounded like Moose from the old Archie cartoons)

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were so many of those moments. I don't think it's possible to pick just one.

Any additional comments?

I don't know which book was better or which book should be read first, but you don't want to miss Something Like Winter or Something Like Summer. It is worth every minute. It's been a couple of years since I read Something Like Summer, but now that I'm done with Winter, it's time for me to re-read Summer.
