What did she do you might ask. Well she sucked me into a fantastic read with her latest book. Read all about the book and my review of it below.
Driven Snow (The Pennymaker Tales #2) by Tara Lain 5*
BLURB: Young Snowden “Snow” Reynaldi is brilliant, beautiful, and alone. Though he’s shy, weird, and tolerated by the NorCal University students because he’s a renowned whiz at chess and helps put the school on the map, that doesn’t keep him from dreaming of the object of his desires: Riley Prince, championship quarterback.
When Riley needs a physics tutor, Snow jumps at the chance, and their relationship heats up—but Riley has to come out of the jock closet to get anywhere. Meanwhile, Snow’s one true friend and mentor, Professor Kingsley, marries a woman who secretly wants the chess tournament glory and money for herself. Soon after, the professor collapses and Snow finds himself underwater—literally. In a car!
Seven frat brothers from Grimm College rescue Snow just in time for his life to get even worse, and Snow discovers the one relationship he always wanted slipping away. With evil looming at every turn, Snow must survive if only to prove he’s the fairest of them all and regain the trust of his handsome prince.
My Review: This book delivers exactly what you would expect from a Tara Lain story. Wonderful Characters, plenty of problems, interesting relationships, good sex scenes and, in the case of her Pennymaker Tales, a wonderful twist on a traditional fairytale. Snow and Riley really make the book with their wonderful dialogue but I will admit I loved the frat brothers a lot. I hope that Tara intends to use them in future books. But it's this book I am talking bout so let me tell you that if you don't go and read it you will be missing an incredible few hours lost in an M/M romance with action and intrigue aplenty.
