5 STARS. I was hooked into this story within the first few pages and it was very hard to put down! And of course Snack... I fell for him from the very first pages and later, with his dirty-not-dirty talk... swoon! I highly recommend this book, and I can't wait to read a whole lot more from Emme Burton!  -Fiction Conviction Book Blog
4 STARS. Would I recommend this book? Yes. In a heartbeat. It was a light-hearted, sweet story that I enjoyed. Minnie is great - like great-great. And, Snack is most definitely an original leading man. -A Cup and A Book 
5 STARS. Wow, this book was amazing. This one is a drop everything and read now book. 
I read a little preview of this and was hooked and couldn't wait for it to come out.  I don't suggest starting this one at night because I was totally hooked and stayed up to 2am reading it. Emme Burton is a new to me author. I loved reading Snack so much that I will definitely be checking out more of her work. -Amazeballs Book Addicts
... an engaging read-a little funny, a little quirky, a little sexy, a little heartbreaking and bittersweet. A lot adorable. It's a bit of an emotional ride, but fun-and definitely worth it!

I both loved and hated this book! The story was beautifully written, but the characters were at times hard to get on board with.

This is a second chance romance unlike any other. The premise of this story is something that may turn off some readers, and others will absolutely adore. I was in between with my feelings on how these two were reunited.

Twenty-six years ago Snack entered Minnie's life and was her best friend, and the love of her life. Throughout this book we get both past and present perspectives from Minnie on Snack and her story. We see their friendship, the trouble they caused as kids, then see them move on to something more, and then we see Snack break Minnie's heart over and over again. Minnie has tried over the years to move on but her heart still belongs to Snack. I felt her pain when she went through some of the things she did in this book, and I wanted to strangle her at times with how she behaved or how quickly she would forgive Snack.

Now Snack... I really wanted to love him, and it took me a long time in this book to like the current Snack. The old snack when he was a kid, and before he broke Minnie's heart, was awesome, but the one now? Not so much. He recently has suffered a great loss, and Minnie is there to help bring him out of his shell. He goes from being sad and sullen, to a man in love all over again. I felt that if Minnie was the love of his life, and he never stopped loving her, he would never have broken her heart the second time. I understand the first time, he was scared, but the second time? That's now what a man who only loves one woman does.

I understand this is fiction, but I just had a hard time accepting Snack moving forward so quickly.

I am so freaking furious. Before I get to that let me start with this. Snack is not my typical go to romance. I don't usually like guys who have been married and have kids without the heroine. I really prefer that newness and only one love type of romance, but I pushed through this.

Snack is a journey and feels light as you're reading it, but by the end you realize it was so much more. This is a decent novel. I enjoyed the time hop going from present time to a memory of Snack and Minnie when they were younger. I loved seeing their journey of time getting in the way and their own idiocy to this beautiful ending.

I didn't like how quickly everything happened in the present time. It felt really rushed and not true to the characters actions. Snack is mourning his wife, weeping over his loss, then a few hours later he's asking Minnie on a date and having sex with her the next day. It just didn't add up, it's easy to overlook that since there's the chapters going back and reminiscing when they were younger.

I was going to rate this much lower because... that ending. I got to that page and saw, "THE END???" and I flipped out. I put the book down. I hated it. I told my husband I should have known based on the prologue. I was not satisfied. I needed just a little more. Not necessarily a full meal... Just a bite, I'd take a tiny little bitty snack. I told myself I'd sleep on it and write the review later. I laid in bed for an hour tossing and turning because I was not happy. I got out of bed needing to write the review just to let off steam. I opened the book up and looked at those last two words and my hand swiped my Kindle turning the page and guess what? There was a tiny little bitty snack!! Thank you for that! That was exactly what I needed, Emme Burton!

I liked that Snack and Minnie were childhood sweethearts. There was something sweet and innocent about their first kiss. The flashbacks filled in the details, as the past and present intertwined. They met at age 6, when Snack knew Minnie was his girl. Twenty-six years later, Snack is hurting over the death of his wife, and Minnie returns to Downers Grove.

Snack became a player in high school, while Minnie's love life was on hold. Then there was the breakup...his marriage, and their reunion years later. They had grown apart with very different lives. But now they were given a second chance because of a second tragedy. I liked Snack and that he was a good dad. In so many romances that I've read, there are few dads with kids from a previous spouse falling in love again.

Minnie's Wookie, a Yorkie, is a star. I fell for him, and he plays a pretty big role in the story. Snack has kids; Minnie doesn't. Their lives have gone in two different directions. Can first love survive all the twists and turns that life throws at them?

I enjoyed that there was more than one love story going on, which made this a 'forbidden' romance.

I like reading about second chance, mature romances (they're in their 30s) as both have a history. How they were as kids, teenagers, young adults, and then today made the story layered for me.

I laughed at Wookie's antics, Snack's kids, 'sleepovers', and the fun banter, and then felt sad as later events unfolded.

This is about coming home, falling back in love or finding that you never truly fell out of love, and finding out how important family is.

The only issue I had was how quickly their revived relationship was accepted, considering that it just about a month or two since his wife's death. That seemed a bit awkward to me.

I recommend it to contemporary romance readers that enjoy their stories with hot, sexy scenes and a first love storyline.
