    4.5 stars Another story in the Winter Wonderland Giveaway that I really enjoyed. It was fun, sweet and romantic. Even the intimate scenes worked so well with the story, and I don’t often say that. I really liked Drew and Liam as main characters. They complemented each other perfectly. Great banter and great chemistry between them. Loved the writing in this one.

    ~4.25~ Drew and Liam are an unlikely but perfect match. Liam is boisterous and funny. He doesn't mind being the center of attention. Everyone loves Liam. Drew is more intense. He worries that he's too serious and too old for Liam (which is ridiculous; 28 to 23 is not an age difference worth discussing). The sex between the men is smokin' hot, and there's definitely some heartfelt romance too. The epilogue is beyond adorable and made me believe in the the guys' HEA. I liked this story so much!

I also love her signature endings wherein she ends the story with one character's deep thoughts that tie the last sentence into the title of the book.

    3.5 stars Short, sweet, and sexy. I was looking for a good opposites-attract romance, and ‘Out in Winter’ delivered! Liam and Drew couldn’t be more different. Drew is serious, reserved, and very careful in everything he does. Liam is loud, outgoing, and goes with the flow. Despite those differences, the two are very attracted to each other, which makes working together at the bistro a bit tricky at times. Not that either of them admits it or lets on to the other.

Drew is serious, reserved, and very careful in everything he does. Liam is loud, outgoing, and goes with the flow. Despite those differences, the two are very attracted to each other, which makes working together at the bistro a bit tricky at times. Not that either of them admits it or lets on to the other. That is until an offer of a lift ends in a deep conversation and a hot makeout session. After that, there’s no turning back! I really liked that along with the undeniable physical attraction, Drew and Liam’s relationship also had the emotional connection from the get-go. That the two were so comfortable sharing their secrets with each other, and made time and space for one another. That easy connection carries their budding relationship from the restaurant to the ski slopes. Their dates during the quick getaway were adorable. And not to mention very sexy! These two really brought the heat, and were so in-tune with each other’s needs. Something that I wasn’t a fan of - that age was ever part of the discussion, at least on Drew’s end. Five years is nothing, and both men were still in their twenties. It should have been a non-issue. And it seemed to feed Drew’s general cautious approach about relationships, which is the main stumbling block. Luckily, that didn’t last too long! It takes them a bit of time to voice it, but both Liam and Drew are on the same page and want the same thing. Though I think the time after their return from the ski trip could have been more fleshed out to show rather than just tell how the two had fallen for each other, it was obvious that they were head over heels in love. The epilogue really sealed the deal, and didn’t leave any doubt that Drew and Liam are forever for each other. If you’re looking for a low-angst and easy to read MM romance, I’d recommend Out in Winter!

    That was a gorgeous little jaunt back into the Out In College series from Lane. I loved Liam and it was also really nice to see Elliot's ex Drew in a new light. Sweet, steamy and with all the feels, it felt like a fully fleshed out narrative even though it was around the 30k mark.

    I’m a huge Lane Hayes fan and read her books pretty much as soon as they come out. I was happy to see she was participating, and we were getting a shorty in a series I’ve enjoyed. This was a solid addition and it read like a full story. I enjoyed both Drew and Liam and the dance getting them to their HEA. Thank you to all the authors who participated in this Winter Wonderland event and contributed a free read. It was truly the best way to start 2021.

This book focuses on Drew, the ex-boyfriend of Elliot from the previous book in this series. Getting things from Drew's POV lets us get to know him more and understand his side of the break up a little more. And he gets his own romance with Liam, another water polo player who is sweet, outgoing, and a little bit of a goofball, but also a hot goofball ;). Liam was, in many ways the perfect guy for Drew. He was more lighthearted and funny to Drew's more serious man persona, and he made Drew laugh much more than he did without him. He made Drew happy, which is, of course, important. I guess my 3.5 star rating comes from not quite feeling their connection as much as I was hoping, and I think it was more on Drew's side. He was almost needlessly stand-offish with Liam that it kinda put a damper on their relationship, because while Drew had all the feelings, as the book said, his constant insistence that it would never work out for them and that they "couldn't do this" just...made the "show" part of this...a little nonexistent almost, imo. I felt like it was all coming from Liam, who I adored, and so it kinda put a damper on this for me. Not that Drew was always like this, and these two had their sweet moments, their cute moments and even funny moments, but it was enough to put a damper on my enjoyment of this, so I had to give this 3.5 stars, although I'm rounding up because I still enjoyed enough of this to do so, and I think Liam's side of things, and enjoying his character so much, made me want to round up instead of down. So overall, it was enjoyable and had it's enjoyable moments, and I loved Liam, but Drew honestly dragged this down at times, enough that my enjoyment of this wasn't as much as it could have been. So I still recommend this if you love this series, but I personally feel that it could have been better.

    I'm a huge fan of Lane Hayes' Out In series, and this is a stellar addition to the collection. It's hot, sexy, and sweet, with warm, wonderful characters and a believable storyline. I didn't feel rushed, and though I'd have enjoyed it being longer, I think the story worked well. Sure, I'd like to catch up with Liam and Drew down the road, but I feel like I got the full story of their romance. Definitely recommend!

    All the stars ⭐️ for this one. Liam is right, slightly off-kilter choices are the best choices. Drew needed his life to be shaken up a bit. I’m so happy he got his HEA. These characters made me smile so much. So sexy and endearing. Loved the journey they took together.

    Drew and Liam are a great addition to the Out in College series. I've read all of the other stories in the series and you won't be confused if you haven't, but I would highly recommend backtracking once you're done here. I make no secrets that Lane Hayes is a #OneClick author for me and this holiday novella was the perfect gift.

Drew is the serious guy, Liam is kind of a goofball, but there's been an attraction between the two of them since the moment they met. Drew doesn't want to act upon it, because he thinks he's too old (5 years older) and he's also Liam's boss. Liam doesn't care about that. He wants to quit anyway. So when both of them are getting away for the weekend and find out they both are going to the same place, Liam persuades Drew to meet up at the local bar. When they end up going home together, Drew knows he can't resist any longer. This book is written in solid Lane Hayes style. It's entertaining, it's sweet with cute, likable mc's. And there's a conflict. I enjoyed reading this new addition to the "Out in college" series.

    Out in Winter, the eighth book in Lane Hayes' Out in College series, is a delightful short read. And the cover is just perfect! These are two college students, as well as co-workers, with a boss/employee relationship. Drew always assumed Liam is straight, but discovers that he's actually bi, although most people don't know it. When both men are in the same place for a weekend away, the fun begins.

It's basically 140 pages of fun. And of course, I like the appearances by other men from the series. And thanks for the laugh. Porn-a-thon! Still giggling. Overall, Out in Winter is a good addition to this series. I highly recommend this Lane Hayes series to anyone who can't get enough of college athletes falling in love. This series is full of a variety of college athletes from different sports, which is tons of fun.

    The audiobook version of ‘Out in Winter’ by Lane Hayes is purely predictable fluffy fun. As always, Lane Hayes has created a delightful cast of characters featuring two well matched protagonists: Drew Hartley, a cafe manager at Bonne Terre, a bar tender at the Rusty Nail, and a grad student - and Liam Perez, a 5-year younger bi-sexual star water polo player and aspiring engineer.

Michael Dean once again demonstrates his 5-star outstanding narration abilities. His exuberant portrayal of Drew Hartley is particularly impressive. 'Out in Winter' is replete with wonderful scenes such as the one where Drew asks Liam, “What are you wearing?” Liam held his arms open wide and glanced down at his odd ensemble as if it were a surprise to him too. He wore Ugg boots, a read-and -black striped scarf, an unzipped parka…oh yeah, and a Speedo. “Not much”, he quipped. Later Drew says of Liam, “He wasn’t just a breath of fresh air. He was oxygen.” It’s clear from the outset that these two belong together. The HEA ending confirms that they do.

    I’ve read this author before. This is a mm contemporary story set in the USA around a college. Main characters are Liam, a water polo player for the college team and Drew doing his Masters and managing a bistro and also working in a bar. It takes them a while to realise how much they mean to each other and their differences complement each other.

    If you know Lane Hayes, you know what to expect: a well-written, low-angst story featuring characters who act like actual humans and demonstrate emotional maturity and trust (there are no crazy misunderstandings that could be solved with a single conversation here). Liam and Drew are opposites, but great together, and this is an easy read of how they got together. Very enjoyable!

Once again, she delivers a couple that you want more than anything else to have their HEA. We are brought back to the exciting world of water polo. Liam is a good-natured, yet goofy, athlete who works as a server in a bistro. The restaurant also employs a manager, named Drew, who is working towards his graduate degree. The slightly older man is drawn to the wickedly funny and kind Liam. Getting to know Liam better is causing Drew to realize his attraction towards the jovial water polo player is growing by the day. I just love opposites attract romances. Liam and Drew may be different, but their core values are solid. I admired and genuinely liked both men. Ironically, the younger of the two may appear to have a casual and easy going personality, but deep down he knows what he wants in life. He has career goals and now a personal goal, named Drew. His manager, at first, is uneasy with his attraction towards Liam. He needs to be more professional is his mantra, but deep down there are self doubts that Liam will want more out of life than him. The novella is short so it made me appreciate Lane’s gift even more. She fleshed out these men and nothing felt rushed. The romance was sweet, and oh so perfect. If you are drawn to solid writing that embraces an adorable and at times hysterically funny couple, and yes I am talking about their first official date, please pick up a copy and enjoy. By the way, that dinner scene had me laughing and blushing at the same time. I know you will enjoy every word.

Despite being novella length, this story was completely satisfying—with a fully developed arc, good characters, and a sigh-inducing ending. I loved Drew and Liam. They were both fun and vibrant, especially Liam, and they fit and complemented one another very well. Their chemistry felt natural, with a good physical connection, as well as a strong emotional bond, that developed over the course of the story. The dialogue in Out in Winter was bright and lively, providing a good rhythm and tone for the story that left me with a smile on my face. I love that most of this author’s series, like the Out in College one this story is from, are composed of standalones. It allows me to pick them up or read out of order whenever the mood strikes, or when I’m in need of a guaranteed sweetly simple romance that will make me smile. If you are in need of a mood boost, and like college-aged romances, I definitely would recommend Out in Winter.  *** Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie for my reading pleasure, a review wasn't a requirement. ***

Drew fights his feelings - hard, but the truth is, Liam pretty much always gets what he wants in the end. I love this couple. They're funny and sweet with each other, and I loved that they were always honest. There's a pretty hilarious scene involving a butt plug that made me both cringe and laugh. But it showed how sweet both these guys really are, and how much they really like each other. Out in Winter is probably a book I'll read again when I want an easy, comfortable read with lots of steam with some laughs thrown in for good measure.

    Audiobook review: Overall – 5 Story – 5 Performance – 5 Another great audiobook from Lane Hayes and Michael Dean! Out in Winter is the 8th book in the Out in College series and I’m so glad I didn’t have to wait long for it to come out as an audiobook. Michael Dean has done a wonderful job with all of the books in this series and Out in Winter didn’t break that pattern. His performance of the story added to my enjoyment of the book. Out in Winter may not be a long story but it’s a really great one. Lia Audiobook review: Overall – 5 Story – 5 Performance – 5 Another great audiobook from Lane Hayes and Michael Dean!

Out in Winter may not be a long story but it’s a really great one. Liam is a fun character. I love all of the things he does to try and get Drew’s attention. The scene with him in a Pride jock was so funny! “I’m wearing a rainbow banana hammock to show off my frank and beans, and you notice my shoes?” Drew doesn’t want to fall for another bi guy – the first time didn’t end well – but he can’t seem to help himself when it comes to Drew. He also knows he shouldn’t be having feelings for a co-worker he supervises… This whole story was just delicious and I devoured it! ***Reviewed for Xtreme-Delusions dot com***
