Bowen Merlin—yes, that's his real name—accepts a position in the quaint town of Lancaster, New Hampshire, as the high school band director. He leaves New York City for the snowy countryside of New England just in time for the holidays. With class, homework, after-school activities, and a surprise Christmas concert to plan and rehearse, Bowen is plenty busy. And since he's never had much luck with romance, factoring in time to find Mr. Right isn't a priority….

Until he meets the proprietor of Snowy Ridge Apple Orchard, Felix Hansen. Suddenly, true love seems like a possibility for the first time in Bowen's life. The two are a perfect match and fill the skipped beats of each other's hearts. But as wonderful as Felix seems, he's harboring scars that could end their budding relationship when someone in town goes to great lengths to sabotage their careers.

If Bowen is to survive the holidays, he'll need to lean on old friends and new, convince Felix he's worth any hardship, and prove they can come out of the catastrophe stronger if they do so together.

I loved every minute I spend reading COLOR OF YOU. From beginning to end, it was a pure joy.

Bowen moves to Lancaster, New Hampshire after he accepts a position as the high school's band director. Little he knew, he was about to meet his perfect match at the Snowy Ridge Apple Orchard, as a little accident made him meet its owner, Felix Hansen. But Bowen's busy schedule, unexpected situations and Felix's need to heal emotional scars endanger the future of their relationship.

I had such a great time reading this book. The plot was really good. It had some interesting moments that I didn't see coming, not all of them good but they made the story better. It had a steady and enjoyable pace.

The part I loved the most about it were the characters. I loved Bowen's sense of humor most of the times, there were times when not so much, but mostly he was a really fun guy. The connection with Felix was clear from the start. I loved every moment they shared. They were so beautiful together. I'm not a big fan of insta-love kind of story, or insta-crush as Bowen called it, but there was something about them that just worked so perfectly and they made me believe it. The romance was absolutely perfect. They fill each other's needs with such ease.

Another part I liked a lot were the secondary characters. I don't think I read a story where I loved the secondary characters as much as the main ones but Alan was adorable. It was impossible not to love him. Scarlet was also such a great character. Her relationship with Bowen was great, it was the most beautiful friendship and it might had some ups and downs but the love was clear, they were so fun.

I loved Felix's insecurities. It made him a more believable character and I guess a lot of readers can relate to him. I loved Felix and Bowen for so many different reasons, they both are amazing. Overall it was an amazing book. I had a great time reading it and I think any reader who enjoy M/M romance will love it.
