BLOG TOUR: Driven Snow by Tara Lain

Thanks to Enchantress Design and Promo for hosting this blog tour. I'm sharing my review of Tara Lain's Driven Snow today. Happy reading!



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.

Author:  Tara Lain
Approximate Book Length:  210 Pages

This is another neat little slice of contemporary romance with just a dash of paranormal fun. It's fairly predictable, but exciting none the less. There were some good laugh out loud moments which is very Tara Lain. That's what I love about her; she makes me laugh and leaves me with a smile.

Another great part about Tara Lain's writing is her lovable characters. Snow was endearing and Riley was hot until he does something stupid, then he redeems himself. I love Riley's landlord and the IPis landlord. They're the really fun ones. The IPis themselves were so lovable that I wish I knew a group of people that close knit.

Bottom Line:

Driven Snow is an incredibly sweet story about family and standing up for yourself...with some chess and mischief thrown in. Don't miss out on this unusual tale!
