Snow Balls (Balls to the Wall #4) by Tara Lain

Big, handsome and hunky, JJ LaRousse looks like an alpha male but acts like an interior decorator. And he’s trying to be happy about it -- until a robbery at the famous Laguna Winter Fantasy brings JJ face-to-face with tough cop, Ryan Star. JJ hears Ryan likes guys who are manly men, so he drops his voice an octave, colors over his pink hair, and tries to pass as a football fan. 

Ryan Star may be tough but he hides in the closet at work since he learned in New York that being a gay cop can cost you your life. His attraction to that big, handsome kid threatens his anonymity, but he can’t seem to resist. JJ is just his type. But then JJ goes skiing and comes face to face with his greatest nemesis-- and all the secrets come out of the closet. Can Ryan love JJ for who he really is? More important, can JJ?

My review:
Snow Balls is a short, sweet story about love and being true to yourself. JJ LaRousse is a 6’4” walking talking sterotype. He works in an art gallery while going to school for interior design. Ryan Star is a rough and tough cop who is afraid to come out of the closet. True he has his reasons but until we know what they are he comes across as a bit of an asshole and not worth JJ pretending to be butch for. Watching them discover just what is important is well worth the read. This book was written in 2012 and the fashions didn’t age well but the story is timeless.
