Publisher's Summary

He's twice his size and a lot older, but will Mac let Quentin come out on top?

Quentin is searching for...something. 

Respect. 

Answers. 

His identity. 

Most of all, he’s searching for a man who will let him be in charge, despite the fact that he looks like an elf.

But all that will have to wait because right now, he’s searching for shelter after getting stranded in the middle of nowhere, New York with a massive snow storm about to hit.

He finds an unexpected host in Mac, a man the whole town seems to hate. Mac has secrets, but so does Quentin. Sparks fly between them, but can it lead to more when Mac is twice his size, a lot older, and practically a virgin...and when Mac can’t leave and there’s no way Quentin will stay?

Snow Way Out is a steamy contemporary gay romance with an age gap, a dash of kink, a ton of snow, a gentle giant of a man, and a bossy twink. It’s a stand-alone book in the Snowed In - Valentine’s Inc. series, which are only connected by the same writing prompt.

Loved everything about this!

Wow what an amazing book! One of the best I have ever read by Nora Phoenix! Mac is probably one of my favorite characters she has ever written. A gentle giant with a heart of gold. And Quentin, oh he was a treat. Confident, self assured and a bossy twink, I adored him! The relationship between them was so real. They communicated, they worked through issues and challenges, they just got each other. The love flowed off the pages. The character development was exceptional, the connection between them was so realistic and their mutual exploration of what worked for them was wonderfully written. The book was smart, sexy, romantic and heartfelt...it was just perfect!
Ken Obi was amazing! His voice for Quentin was soft and perfect. But his voice for Mac, with his stutter, blew my socks off. It was so natural and so well done. As always the narration with Obi was smooth, well paced and on point!

Very Enjoyable

Gosh this was a sweet story. I absolutely adored Augustus (Mac) and thought Quentin was just perfect for him. There was a little twist that I didn’t see coming with Quentin’s search.

I loved this story and will be listening to it again and again. The characters are well written and I could really feel the care and love between the two.

Kenneth Obi did a fantastic job. He brought all the characters to life and really made me feel their emotions. The way that Obi expresses the secondary characters towards Augusts was brilliant. I could feel the nastiness and disdain coming from them all. Obi spoke clearly and at a nice pace making this an enjoyable listen.

Love it

As always Nora Phoenix delivers. Kenneth Obi does a fantastic job as he always does narrating one of Nora's books. I hate leaving spoilers and reviews so I will just say five stars all the way on both the story and the narration for the title.

Snow Isn't Always Bad

Quentin is such an adorable twink. While he isn't personality isn't typical for a twink, he is still lovable. Mac is too sweet. I loved him from the first moment he spoke. Both of these gentlemen have baggage and fears, but they learn to work them out. They each gives/show the other what the other is missing. Quentin shows Mac that not all people are jerks and won't look down on you for something you can't control. Mac shows Quentin that there is someone who likes his true self and won't try to change him.

So amazing!!!

This my new favourite book from the author. It was amazing! I wanted to hug Augustus and protect him. He was the sweetest, most adorable and kind character ever. And Quentin was the perfect match for him and a wonderful character also. This story touched me so much. It was heart breaking and beautiful. The narrator did a BRILLIANT job, especially with Augustus voice. I'm really impressed.

as great as the ebook

The story is always full stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook. I can't listen to an audiobook without knowing the book, that's not possible for me.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. Kenneth Obi is one of the top 5 narrators (so far) for me, I can listen without break and have no problems to follow. I'm just not yet finish with the book, just over the half, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B

Heart warming

I loved this book from the start

I was engaged by both Mac and Quentin

Mac was such a gentle soul who needed someone to stand up for him

Quentin needed a guy to let him be himself

I loved the kink, it lightened the story and made me laugh

My heart broke for Mac’s past, it was well written and the performance was amazing. Ken Obi did an excellent job of performing Mac’s character, the timing was great another great book to listen too

Opposites Attract 

Quentin Frost finds himself world's away from home in a tiny snow covered town in New York hoping his research will help him gain the PhD position at his university.  Augustus McCain, owner of the town junk yard, comes to his rescue when his car dies and Quentin finds himself stranded as a snow storm approaches.  I love that these two men are not what you expect at first glance.  Quentin may be small, but he is mighty. I love how he so easily comes to Mac's defense from the people in town who treat him so poorly. Mac is a gentle giant who has been bullied his whole life and desperately needs someone to show him kindness. If you love unexpected roles and an age gap, this is a fantastic story.

The narration is great, easy to follow, and adds such emotion to the story.  Having read the book first, I did not think I could love Augustus more until I heard Kenneth Obi voice his character.  He did a fantastic job with his stutter; it felt natural and didn't keep me from following along in the story.
