Publisher's Summary

Frosty former friends get a steamy second chance in this Christmas gay romance!

Can true love warm his frozen heart?

When Casey Stevens went away to college four years ago, he ghosted on his straight best friend, Joel Vreeland. He hoped time and distance would lessen the unrequited affection he felt, but all it did was make him miss Joel more. Home for the holidays, Casey hopes they might find a way to be friends again. But Joel’s frosty reception reminds Casey of just how hard he had to fight to be Joel’s friend in the first place. It’s going to take a Christmas miracle to get past that cool façade again. 

Joel isn’t as straight as Casey believes, and his years of pining for Casey have left him hurting and alone, caring for his abusive father and struggling to get by. Unable to trust anyone except his rescue dog - and with no reason to believe Casey is interested in him for more than a holiday fling - Joel’s icy heart might shatter before it can thaw. 

Can Casey and Joel’s love overcome mistrust, parental rejection, class differences, and four long years apart? Mr. Frosty Pants is a stand-alone, Christmas gay romance by Leta Blake featuring a virgin hero, childhood friends-to-lovers, second chance romance, and steamy mm first times.

Young love,, so beautiful.

4 Blue Roses
4 Blue Flames


Narrator John Solo delivered a deep, yet inspirational young love story in time for Christmas. John's performance was solid as usual, he has tremendous talent instilling aggressive and angsty emotions. At times I feel like shouting at anything and anybody, but that's dangerous if you are listening to your book while using public transport. If I don't watch myself the men with white jackets might wait for me at the next stop. I should wear a sign or a T-shirt saying ignore me, I'm listening to an audiobook!

The plot was real, and very believable. Great character development and world building.
I do recommend this audiobook, especially if you want to experience christmas romance.

Happy Listening.

Really great =D

So, this might be a holiday's story, but it's NOT a fluffy one. And it's fantastic :D

I love the slow building of trust in this story, I love how the characters change and grow during it. How they work to accept themselves and get over their family expectations and disappointments in order to be who they really want to be.

It's not an easy road, but it's one they walk fuelled by love... and isn't that wonderful? =D

The writing is great, which comes as not surprise at all, and yes, there are lots of angst, homophobia and self-esteem issues but we got to see the MCs rise above all of them, so yes, I really enjoyed the ride :P

John Solo does a great job with the narration.

What a beautiful, wonderful Christmas story!

If you're expecting a fluffy, slightly silly Christmas novella, this won't be it! This is a beautifully written love story, with well-designed MCs, with all their faults, insecurities and scars. The trope is one of my absolute favorites, second chances, and it's lovely to read how these two soulmates get to finally claim their love for each other overcoming all obstacles (including horrible families).
And, let's just talk about the steam in this book! It almost made my kindle melt, just as much as Joel and Casey (and Bruno) made my heart melt!
A well-deserved five stars for Ms. Blake, who can deliver magic with her stories like few others can.
John Solo is an incredible narrator and made listening to this audiobook an amazing experience!

Loved this audio more then the ebook last year!

I read this book last year, but only gave it 4star back then. But now that I read the second book and LOVED it, I thought I need to give it a second chance but now with audible. And how good that thought was!

I loved this audio! The voices were perfect, the story was awesome and I liked both character. I love when the voices in my head are similar to those when I listen to the audio. Casey and Joel were lovely together and their love story was really good, I liked listening to it. It was hot and cute at the same time. I think I blushed 1-2 times, the sex scenes were super erotic and hot! And John Solo's voice, damn! Amazing! I totally would re-listen to this. I did listened some scenes more then once!

Really liked this book and I'm glad I gave it a second chance, the audiobook is super good! Recommend it!

I enjoyed it this time more then last year!

Mr Cranky Pants

I LOVE THIS BOOK!!!! I could not turn this off. It is so so good. Mr. Frosty pants totally describes Joel! I love Casey’s dedication and love for Joel even though he is super cranky. Definitely check out this book! Heat level is high and low angst.

Reminded me of a Hallmark Christmas movie

This was a fun holiday read. The characters had depth and a strong connection. I enjoyed the romance and the narration worked. The title had me expecting comedy, but what I got was a heartwarming Christmas romance that tugged on my heartstrings. Thoroughly enjoyed listening.

A Great Listen!!

This is a great read for the holidays. Casey left home four years ago without a word to his best friend and the man he'd fallen in love with, Joel. When Casey comes home for the holidays, you can understand why Joel is so standoffish when it comes to falling back into even a friendship with Casey, but their first kiss changes everything. Although the story between the once best friends and trying to re-establish their friendship into something more, they had to deal with their families, who made this even more difficult. Casey's parents, especially his father, is deplorable in how they treat Joel, all because of where he lives and what he chooses to do with his life. But Joel's own father is such an... (insert several curse words here).

As Casey and Joel traverse their new feelings, along with old prejudices, you see that these two best friends belong together. This was a wonderful story. It reminds you not to give up, even when things seem hopeless and the love between these two men put a smile on my face and made me love the Christmas season a little more.

The narration is wonderful and although I read the story before, the narration brought the story to life for me and I enjoyed getting lost in the this lovely holiday story!!

Great performance!

This story was very cute, at times it got a little repetitive. Seemed like trying to draw the angst out quite a bit. Sometimes I felt like I could skip 2 chapters and I’d still be in the same spot. Performance was great and I liked the story, just could’ve cut a little out.

Fantastic Story!

This is my first book by Leta Blake and I was blown away. I really enjoyed Joel and Casey's love story. It wasn't completely smooth, there was definitely angst along the way, but I really liked the dialogue between Joel and Casey; they talked about issues, they didn't avoid them. Casey was open, honest and direct; I adored him! Joel was less open, as he had a ton of buried insecurities, but boy did he allow Casey in and Casey was able to slowly chip away to get to Joel's heart. The sexy times were smoking hot and done so well. They both had to navigate some pretty awful parents and they each stood up for themselves and supported each other along the way.
John Solo was fantastic as always! I really felt Joel's grumpiness and Casey's optimism shine through in their voices. The pace was smooth and consistent and the sexy times were steamy!!!
