This is a fun read. It is much deeper than it seems on the surface. It has all the mystery and intrigue that one can ask for in a rather light read. The main character of 'Snow' is well developed and presented as one that you are always pulling for to succeed and when he does it leaves you with a good feeling.

There is an air of mystery about this series that hints at the practicality of 'everything happens for a reason'. Although I have a bit of a problem with that concept, it is presented here in the light of physics and if taken in this context is wholly believable. It is a relaxing read the will hold your attention to the end.

This book is a remarkably well-written gay fairy tale. As the newest installment in the Pennymaker series, Ms. Lain offers us her unique, radical reimagining of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs as a gay romance with just the right quotient of tongue-in-cheek. She’s good, really good. So good that she transformed this aging curmudgeon into a born-again fan of the fairy tale.

“Driven Snow” is not the classic Snow White tale from your childhood. The Grimm Brothers are, most likely, spinning in their graves. Although obviously intended as homage, Ms. Lain doesn’t stick to the script real well (thank heavens!), but freely exercises her right to invent and embellish to the point that the original tale serves sort of as a rough outline, a framework on which her fertile imagination runs riot

I must admit, I read the whole book with a light heart and a smile on my face, enjoying every moment of this outlandish page-turner. Even attempted murder, kidnapping and standard memes galore did not detract from my thorough enjoyment of this book – and the sheer charm of it. Suspend your disbelief, people; it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

The main character is a brilliant and beautiful young man, Snowden (“Snow White”, get it?) Reynaldi. He’s a gorgeous college student, with a face so beautiful it’s almost feminine, and a long, thin, sultry body that complements his considerable intellect. He’s a physics major (and genius), but no princess. In fact, he’s the anointed King of Chess. How appropriate, as chess has always been referred to as the “game of kings”. He has vanquished every challenger, destroyed renowned chess masters with only a move or two, and bested a roomful of opponents in one fell swoop. He’s also no shrinking violet.

Tara Lain puts a modern twist on fairytales, in her Pennymaker Tales! As with all Tara's books, she creates a great escape. Heartwarming ,endearing and lovely heroes, as well as some evil villains that get their just rewards.
In this tale ,Snowden Reynaldi is a beautiful but nerdy Chessmaster and physics major. He is secretly in love with the (straight )football quarterback Riley Prince. There are so many wonderful characters in this book ,new and old. I have read all of Tara's work. With the start of each book, she weaves a tale that at first seems so unlikely, then magically becomes so believable and realistic. Her characters are all fabulous! She puts in enough angst and drama ,but doesn't leave you hanging for too long.. These books are a romantic ,fantasy and comedy with important life lessons installed. A beautiful, thoughtful journey that will make you smile in the end.--------- I won this copy and was asked to give a review...I was excited ,as she is an automatic buy for me. I didn't give an outline of the whole story.. You need to read the book ...it's more fun that way... We all get the idea of the Snow White aspect ...it is so cool how she brings it all together. As always a reading pleasure!

Driven Snow (The Pennymaker Tales #2) by Tara Lain
4 stars
I was given this book for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.

I was to start by saying that I did not read the previous story in this series.

Snowden was a character that I really enjoyed. He had great inner dialogue and was able to figure himself out with the help of the Iota Pi Fraternity brothers. I really enjoyed those characters and seriously hope they get their own stories.

Then you have NorCal's "golden" football star, Riley. I really liked how he was able to come out to his teammates and despite some not being as accepting, didn't let it phase him too much. But, as most stories go, miscommunication, mistrust and self doubt are your own worst enemies.

The chemistry between Riley and Snowden was somewhat juvenile, but overall, it was decent.

Then you have the wicked witch of the story, Anitra... and her minion, Hunter... they are characters that you simply are made to hate. Lain did a great job at developing their ickiness.

Overall, this was a cute, somewhat predictable, strange fairy tale that includes the HEA.

Driven Snow is a fun m/m take on an old fairytale. You have Snow an introverted chess grandmaster and physics major. You have Riley Prince quarterback and closeted gay man who Snow has crushed on and who has crushed on Snow but neither let on till senior year when Prince needed a physics tutor. Not one but 2 fairy grandparents and seven frat brothers from Grimm College. Oh and lets not forget the evil queen in the guise of a professor and her minion.
Tara Lane takes us on a romp through college and a major chess tournament. She takes us through Snow and Riley’s courtship with humor and gentleness. She fills this story with wonderful characters and you won’t want to let them go. Like any good fairytale this book is filled with lessons gently illustrated and you can’t help but take them to heart. A fantastic read I highly recommend.
