    1. Sinders and Ash, the first Pennymaker Tales book, was a cute enough read I am always up for a good Cinderfella, so I didn t mind the silliness too much Driven Snow, unfortunately, didn t work for me Let s start with the cover, which features a disturbingly underage looking kid in a come hither pose Squick factor high Cover aside, Driven Snow features one dimensional MCs and a rather nonsensical plot loosely based on Snow White Snow is a shy but brilliant college chess champion pining for a hunky [...]


    2. I get that this is based on a fairy tale, and that is actually what drew me to it I loved Truth in the Dark by Amy Lane, and other stories with roots in fairy tales and I love seeing how they are changed and how the morals are woven in Unfortunately, it didn t work here.I enjoyed the first half of the book and thought it would be a solid 3 star, maybe rounded up to 3.5 stars Snow was shy and sweet, I enjoyed seeing his interactions with his mentor, Mr Kingsley, and watching things begin with Ril [...]


    3. This book was seriously so cute So this author wrote a cute little mix on snow whites story but a lot um how to say this Graphic then snow whites story lol and of course in this book Snow white is really a man named Snowden Snowden is in collage and is extremely smart and a awesome chess player Well he has a huge crush on Riley Prince but thinks Riley is straight so there is just no way he would every feel the same about him Well little did he know Riley is not straight and has feelings for him [...]


    4. This was another fantastic ready by Tara Lain She is one of my all time favorites when it comes to m m romance She really knows how to suck you into a story and make you feel as if you are a part of it.This book was so easy to fall in love with the characters They have so much depth to them They are not one dimensional characters but have so many characteristics to them that make them seem so real that they practically jump off the page The dialogue between the characters is so engaging that you [...]


    5. A great twist on Snow white and the seven dwarfs A lot of fairytale spinoffs fall short however this was not the case in Ms Lains version Her retelling is filled with awesome characters, evil villains and an interesting look at the game of chess Snow is a beautiful geek, important to the school because he is a genius at chess and keeps them on the map so to speak He has always been alone and longs for someone to love Riley is the star quarterback and has secretly wanted Snow from the first time [...]

    7. Snowden Reynaldi is pure entertainment he is now one of my top 5 characters I love the development of both Snow and Riley They don t rush into anything This is a great take on a fairy tale romance Snow is a geek physics and a chess master who has a crush on the football quarterback Riley Riley who is playing straight has a crush on the Chess Master Snow What a great read, this story has the evil witch and a fairy godmother and fairy godfather Mr Pennymaker This is one that will go on my re read [...]

    9. Driven Snow is a fun m m take on an old fairy tale 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 [...]


    10. This book delivers exactly what you would expect from a Tara Lain story Wonderful Characters, plenty of problems, interesting relationships, good sex scenes and, in the case of her Pennymaker Tales, a wonderful twist on a traditional fairytale Snow and Riley really make the book with their wonderful dialogue but I will admit I loved the frat brothers a lot I hope that Tara intends to use them in future books But it s this book I am talking bout so let me tell you that if you don t go and read it [...]


    11. 1.0 Pathetic StarWow This was a spectacular fail for me First, the cover is all kinds of wrong A too young i.e underage looking guy striking a provocative pose Yeah, no Second, the characters had zero chemistry Third, the plot was so ridiculous it stretched the bounds of fantasy reason and there s nothing stretchier than that Bottom line This book did not work for me Give it a pass and try Knight of Ocean Avenue.


    12. 4.5 out of 5 starsDescription 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 Mea [...]


    13. The Blogger Girls4.5 StarsI picked up this book because I am a huge fan of this author and that s it The cover didn t grab me, the blurb didn t grab me, and I was hard pressed to see how a nerdy chess master and a college football quarterback could breathe new life into the tried and true college athlete vs nerd theme But I was wrong There was so much to this story, so much depth and plot and characterization that I was actually hard pressed to even put it down And I didn t put it down until I f [...]


    14. This book was provided for free by the author in exchange for an honest review.This is book 2 in The Pennymaker Tales series, but it can be read as a standalone Just like book 1 Sinders and Ash , it is loosely based on a fairytale As apparent from the name, it is based on Snow White.Snowden Snow Reynaldi is a chess Grandmaster and a physics whiz One day at a chess game he notices that Riley Prince, the quarterback of the NorCal championship football team, is watching He has long had a crush on t [...]


    15. Driven Snow The Pennymaker Tales 2 by Tara Lain4 starsI 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 lik [...]


    16. I love the Pennymaker tales Snow and Riley were great characters to get absorbed in From Riley s angst about his decisions and Snow s inner monolog you can t help but love them, Snow a bit since he never gave up The IPis omg, they need their own book or novella, I love them all and want to know so much This story definitely rates as one of my favorites, not as much as Sinders but its up there I can t wait for There s so much I want to say but it d spoil it for everyone who hasn t read it.


    17. Tara Lain has quickly become one my favorite m m authors She knows how to create characters that draw you in and keep you invested in their story This is a great twist on the classic Snow White story This is the second book in the Pennymaker Tale series and I can t wait for


    18.

    20. This story is loosely based on the Snow White fairy tale Snowden Snow is a physics student and chess master Snow is a sweetheart, and I loved him from the beginning He s uncomfortable and awkward around most people He has a massive crush on the star QB of the college football team, Riley Prince, that he thinks will never go anywhere Riley Prince clearly has a cheerleader girlfriend Snow lives alone, and he doesn t have much Riley shows up at one of Snow s chess matches, and Snow gets distracted [...]


    21. I love how Tara is transforming a classic fairytale and created a wonderful new story The scene is set with Snow being trained for a championship chess game The coach of the football team asks Snow to help Riley Prince learn physics, unknown to him Prince is still in the closet Snow and Prince connect immediately, but love is never smooth sailing as there is always bumps in the road Snow s professor is like a father to him and marries a wicked woman,who is after the chess title and makes Snow s [...]


    22. 4 Let me start by saying, Tara Lain can do no wrong in my book There hasn t been a Tara Lain book that I don t love This story is an awesome version of Snow White and the seven Dwarfs Even though I had moments where I was screaming especially when Riley was so easy to be manipulated by othersI can t help but fall in love with both Snow Riley Snow was perfect, perfect, perfect I know that I would love to have the seven dwarfs of my own Mr Pennymaker was such a character that you can t help but to [...]


    23. 3 to 4 stars I wavered on this one but ended on the generous side but dang it I m in the holiday spirit I liked the beginning didn t like the middle and it came around a bit in the end Yes it was a fairytale but it had too much crazy plot going on at times I did like Snow though there was sexiness to it than I expected so there s that I m not sure I could have forgiven Riley aka the Prince for being a non believer in Snow when the sh really hit the fan Oh well, it was light, had some humor and [...]


    24. 4.5 STARSAs soon as I read the blurb for this book I just had to add it to my review list I love when authors rewrite and modernize fairytales, though to be honest, the results often leave me cringing in horror Not so with this story, which Tara Lain has successfully taken, twisted and sexed up for our reading pleasure.Snowden Reynaldi I just love saying that name out loud is NorCal s chess playing prodigy, a surprisingly respected position that gives him celebrity status and some protection fro [...]


    25. This was a cute and sweet romance between Riley and Snow What I liked the most though was the growth these two went through They both had a path to forge through and some was done together but some needed to be done apart so that they could understand and appreciate what they are to each other.Riley is the football that is the golden boy He is smart and pretty He is popular and kind He also harbours a secret crush on Snow Not only this but due to being a athlete he has hidden in the closet excep [...]


    26. ARC provided by the publisher through Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words in exchange for an impartial review Another fairy tale for grownups featuring the elfin Mr Pennymaker who returns in this one dressed just as flamboyantly as the last time First and foremost, this must be treated as a fairytale, otherwise much of what happens will not make sense There s no logic here, just magically occurring coincidences and happy endings Snowden Snow Reynaldi is a physics major at NorCal He s also a world [...]


    27. This book is a contemporary M M romance loosely based on the Snow White fairy tale It s the second in the Pennymaker tales series, but has no connection to the previous book, Sinders And Ash.3.5 Stars.Snowden is a college senior and a Grandmaster chess champion He s been working toward competing in a major international tournament at which he s the favorite to win He s held a longstanding crush on the resident BMOC, quarterback Riley Prince, who s a fan of Snow s, too.Riley needs tutoring, and S [...]


    28. I run a bit hot cold on Tara Lain I love The Knight of Ocean Ave, it s one of my go to feel good books in fact But The Wolf in Gucci Loafers put me off from M M romance for almost a year when I was first exploring the genre I d read the reviews and figured that Driven Snow would at best be a way to kill a few hours and it was on sale What I didn t expect was how much I d enjoy it, or that it d be one of the rare books to get me choked up by the end Yes things can be a bit convenient in how the p [...]


    29. I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads I have to confess that I requested this book before reading the blurb because Tara Lain will always be one of my auto buy authors so I only have myself to blame for not really enjoying this modern re telling of Snow White I m not a fairytale fan With the exception of Shrek and The Paperbag Princess, I m not even really a fan of modern twisted fairy tales This is a modern New Adult m m retelling of Snow White in an American Colle [...]
