Our Review:

Reviewed by Donna ~ 4.5 stars
***ARC received for an honest review***

“There wouldn’t be any torture tonight. It would be simple. An execution…”

OMG, I need the next book. Seriously, gimme, gimme, gimme. I feel sick. OMG, Bethany Kris and London Miller, how could you do this to me? This series has been so addictive from the very beginning and Kaz and Violet are one of my favourite mafia couples. So, diving into this one with high expectations it was a relief not to be disappointed as this was definitely no filler book. This was a fantastic sequel and one that was action packed from the very beginning. Kris and Miller took no prisoners, throwing you into the thick of it from the start and they don’t relent, even to the last word.

“…he started a war, and I plan to finish it.”

Where the Snow Falls is the continuation of the forbidden mafia romance between Kaz and Violet, Kaz being Russian and Violet, Italian. Their families had called a truce years ago as long as they stayed out of each other’s way and off each other’s turf, so when the son and daughter of the respective mafia bosses fell in love, you knew that all was never going to end well. But as we knew from book one, this truce was born from blood and betrayal, one that Kaz would never forget and wanted vengeance for.

“I was never given the choice with my family. Kaz has always been my choice.”

This book starts with Kaz and Violet being reunited, despite their father’s best efforts to keep them apart. Now the battle really begins. Not only for justice but for their lives. Everyone is out for blood and Kaz and Violets is top of the list. The lines between good and evil are extremely blurry and not knowing who to trust is high on their lists. But Kaz has respect amongst his peers and now it is time to regroup before the real battle begins.

“Welcome to Chicago, Violet Gallucci. I certainly hope you’re worth the trouble you’re about to cause.”

The character connection, as in book one was on point, the heat, chemistry and palpable connection that these two had radiated off the pages, that insatiable hunger felt real, tangible and with every moment apart and every moment together, not once did I not believe in them as a couple. It is this connection that has you rooting for these two. I have lived and breathed this couple for two books and with every page and every breath held I find myself falling down the rabbit hole of Mafioso heroics, murders and culpability with these two at the forefront of my thoughts. I desperately want these two to get the happy ever after they deserve, yet with each scene that Kris and Miller deliver it seems that hope just scatters further and further away.

“You don’t have to be good enough for everyone else, Violet, only him.”

What an ending though, my heart in my mouth, my hand on my heart, I literally couldn’t breathe. These two authors are pure, unadulterated evil, they are evil personified. Twice they have ripped out my heart and stamped on it and now I have to impatiently wait to be put out of my misery. Or at least I hope to.

“You are your father’s son.”

This series is the perfect balance of suspense and sex, it is intriguing yet intoxicating, the intense plot more than carries a beautiful romance steeped in trust and love. The growth of Kaz throughout this book only intensified my love for his character. From the alpha male in the bedroom to the commanding presence he resonates on every single page. From being an “I” to an “Us” this man takes on his responsibilities and no man, family or foe will take that away from him. I really wanted Violet to embrace her inner mafia princess in this book. I know that she had been sheltered but she knows that their lives are on the line, I desperately want her to step up to the plate in book three, Kaz cannot take on the world on his own or is it too late?

“Blood always leaves the brightest stains where the snow falls.”

Bring on book three, NOW!!!
