Review: Snow Falling by Davidson King

After running from a past destined to kill him, Snow has been hiding on the streets.
Tell nobody your name.
Tell nobody your secrets.
Trust nobody!
These are the rules of the streets.
His entire life changes when he saves an eight-year-old boy from a violent end.
Christopher Manos is one of the most powerful crime bosses in the country.
Don’t ask anyone to do something you aren’t willing to do yourself.
Secrets can get you killed.
Trust nobody!
These are the rules he lives by.
When his eight-year-old nephew disappears, he never expects the boy’s savior to end up being his own.
A man with a dangerous past and a man with a dangerous future find love amidst murder and mayhem. But with Snow's life being threatened at every turn, will Christopher's best be enough to prevent Snow Falling?

This book could be called mafia-lite or mafia smuffy - it wasn't necessarily what I was expecting, but I can honestly say I thoroughly enjoyed it.

Snow is a fab MC, he really is. Despite his past and his lifestyle he is vibrant and kind and full of life. I adored how he was with Simon, he paid attention and listened to him and it was that friendship that won my heart as it did Christopher's.

Christopher was the big bad crime boss - except he wasn't really, not at his core. He wanted to protect those close to him, those he respects and loves. He wanted to keep Simon safe and happy and he opened up his home to Snow. Initially for altruistic reasons, but he kept him there because he became part of the home. I can say honestly that I enjoyed his character alot.

The dynamics between all the characters in this story worked well. This wasn't gritty crime drama - yeah, there was violence and fighting, but the heart of it wasn't this it was the relationships and friendships and fighting to save what is loved.

This debut novel isn't going to tick the boxes for everyone but I can say it worked for me!

A copy of this book was given in exchange for an honest review.
