You don’t want to miss out

I read the book a while back and liked it even though mobsters usually aren’t my thing. Snow is such and endearing character you can’t help but fall in love with him. The book keeps you on the edge of your seat and gives you all the feels. I would have probably kept the narration to one narrator but that is just my opinion. I would recommend this audiobook.

Soooo good!

The duel narration in this book was completely spot on! I love when an author knows the voice of their characters and can match it with narrators. Joel and Philip were absolutely perfect! I totally binge listened to this book. Stupid work got in the way but I finished and am already planning a re-listen. This book had everything you could ever want in a story; action, adventure, bad guys, worse guys, sexy times and a happy ending. Loved every second of this book!!

Love this book, but...

I really loved this book when I read it way back, so seeing it as an audio book made my day... exept for the fact its two narrators. I love Joel Leslies work and Philip Alces are also good but still fairely new to me, they did there parts really good in the book and since the chapters follow two pov it works, but I still dont like to listen to different reader styles and having to adjust to the charachters over and over. There is also whenever the narrators switch you have to lower/increse the sound since the tone changed with whoever reads, but it isnt to bad.
I think if they had devided the charachters among the narrators and then stuck to them even thrue the others chapters I wouldnt have minded at all, since it is pov, but ofcourse thats to much work and I have only run into that kind of narration a couple of times. More work but with a so much better result if you ask me.
Other than that this book is really good and the narrators were great. Love the charachters and the story really suck you in, you wont be abel to stop listening!

Awesome.

I loved the narration for this book. Joel Leslie is one of my favorite narrators. Philip is new to me but I think he did a wonderful job. I look forward to the next book.

Good one

The audio made me listen to this book. Good storie, it coul have been great, the love affair did not convince me, the love scenes where very lackluster to me. I did like the Main characters very much.
The stori was great too
The narration by Joel Leslie was stupendous
Philip Alce I never heard him before and he was really good too.
But for this book I wish they should have pick one narrator only. I love the cover picture.
But i do recommend this book.

Really great story and amazing narration!

WOW just fucking Wow… Honestly is it just me or does Joel’s voices keep getting better and better??
I Just finished listening to this so excuse me if I’m all exclamation marks and not enough coherent thought but omg I loved this story!!

First of all kudos to whoever designed the cover for the book, it’s beautiful, super eye catching, and it makes it stand out which is part of the reason I chose this book to listen to over others on my wish list.

Snow is an amazing character and I love that he’s such a good influence on Simon by just being his crazy self. He has a strong backbone and has definitely seen his share of horrible things and that’s before he was even on the streets. Christopher is a wonderful counterpart for Snow who deserves all the spoiling and love Christopher showers him with. I mean wouldn’t we all love to be spoiled by someone like Christopher Manos?? The supporting characters do an amazing job and I got invested in their happiness all the way from Simon and his adorableness to Bill and his unique charms.

The story is quick paced but not rushed and the action scenes are very entertaining without being confusing, you know exactly what’s happening. This story pulled me in from the beginning and had me entertained until the very end.

The performance: if it wasn’t already obvious from my earlier fan-girling I am in total awe of Joel Leslie’s vocal chords and if it was possible to marry a voice I would propose. This book in particular I was a big fan of him making Simon’s voice sound so child-like and then switching over to make Christopher’s voice so deep and sexy it was like listening to a full cast instead of one guy. This was my first time listening to Philip Alces and I got to say I’m a fan. I will for sure be checking out some of his other work. He made perfect Christopher Manos and I thoroughly enjoyed the alternating POV from each narrator.

10/10 would listen to again :)

Snow Falling

I Absolutely Love everything about this book….

Ever since I first read this book everything about Snow completely and fully fascinated me. I love everything about him and his personality. I don’t think I will ever get sick of reading this book or hearing this story now that it’s out in audio as well.

For a first book by a new Author I am absolutely impressed how well this book is written and how the storyline and plot plays out. Every part of this book flows well together from start to finish and keeps you entertained and immersed in the story. And holy smokes can I just say how pleasing and gorgeous the cover of this book and the cover model is as well. Like OMG that is the first thing that drew me in wanting to give this book a read. The cover of this book matches Snow's character perfectly.

Audio – The best narrators were chosen for this book. Joel Leslie as Snow, and Philip Alces as Christopher, yes please!!! These two men did a fantastic job on this audiobook and making these two characters come to life. They made sure that every character fit every part of both of their voices and tones with the correct emotions included. I really loved listening to every minute of this audiobook, and will be recommending it to everyone.

Snow is great at running. Running from the past. Running from the bad guys that want to do him harm. Running from everything in life that might keep him grounded. I am so glad when he stops running and gives in to Chris and Chris’s need to help him. They are just perfect for each other. Snow has the best personality, he’s crazy smart and funny and snarky and doesn’t let anyone push him around he does what he wants with no reservations. Christopher Manos is a feared, but “good” mobster, when they meet sparks fly and they have an instant undeniable connection to each other. Considering this book has a mobster and death and destruction in it, it’s not a dark book. It was surprisingly light and had a sweeter feel to it as well and I think that is down to the romance aspect between the two main characters. They keep each other in the “light” with their character interactions and the dynamic they have with each other and some of the other more minor characters included in this book as well.

Great book and I really look forward to reading more by this author as well.

Good enough for the re-read shelves

To start I knew nothing about Davidson King. That being said what a wonderful and amazing find I made with this book. The main characters are perfectly matched. The twist and turns of the plot were awesome. I have to wonder what kind of magic was cast on this book that I went the full six hours an twenty-one minutes all in one go and was sad the ticked off because there wasn't more. I need more Snow and Christopher please .

Falling for Snow

I have to admit to only giving this book a chance based on Joel Leslie being the narrator. I will however, be looking for more from this author if this is any indication of their stellar writing ability.

This book had it all, romance, intrigue, murder and mayhem. The dual narration brought the words to life in a way that made a full Peter Jackson film play in my mind while listening.

I loved Snow from the beginning his courage in the face of such overwhelming odds when you everything to loose and nothing to gain and doing it because you know it's the right thing to do is truly heroic. Conversely watching the boss of a renown crime family was beautiful.

Christopher and Snow the price and cost of secrets. Those kept to protect yourself and those kept to protect the ones you love and cannot do without. Christopher's beloved nephew, Simon or "8" is kidnapped and Snow comes to his rescue. There is no hesitancy to do so and it sets the stage for all the life altering, scary as heck stuff that follows.

I will advise anyone who wants to listen to this to do so when they have time to listen to it all at one time. I made the mistake of starting this 2 hours before "bedtime" and I ended up staying up until almost 2 am before I had to force myself to turn it off because there's this thing called work that I had to go to the next morning.

I base whether or not a book is worth buying on whether or not I see myself reading it or in this case listening to it again. In this way I can tell you that I very definitely will so if you are wondering if this is worth a chance, a credit or your cash it is. It really is.

The story and narration are stellar, the passion and beauty of the story is phenomenal and the character, development and pacing are all incredible. So go click buy and then let Joel and Phillip woo you with the power of their voices :)

Enjoyable

I am not a big fan of dual narration, but this one grew on me as it progressed. I had read the book, but I like to listen to Joel Leslie, so I picked this one up. It's a good story with lots of drama and emotion. Worth your time and the credit.

Sweet romance

This was a nice read, but the romance was all a little too sweet considering it involves a crime boss. Definitely an easy listen.

Some of the plot is a bit frustrating, like when they are in a hurry to save someone and have a nice little chat with someone before leaving ..and let’s be honest, the rest of the story could have been tied up pretty quick if they hadn’t sat around gabbing and got a wiggle on and fixed the issue before it escalated. There were a few parts like that so it was difficult to buy into the crime world this was supposed to be set in. Surprised they’ve all survived so long!
