The Sno Ho Sequel

Aspiring author, Boone Daniels, always figured love would be as easy as he was. Fresh off the whirlwind winter-vacation romance with ski-god and would-be boyfriend, Wade Walker -- Boone was certain that saying goodbye would be the hardest part.

He'd survived the unconventional way in which they came together, proven himself somewhat worthy to Wade's hometow

This review is for both Sno Ho and Life Infusion

Sno Ho started as a short story in the anthology Melting the Slopes back in 2009. It was so wildly popular with fans that Mr. Day wrote Life Infusion, a novel-length sequel in 2010 and published Sno Ho as a novella. There is also a lovely epilogue of sorts in Summit City #2.5: A Summit City Christmas that was published in 2011. I read both books for the first time in August 2012 and re-read Mr. Day's new editions (which do not contain new material)

I have NO idea how this happened...but this book wiggled it's way into my heart...BIG TIME.

I went on a holiday reading binge this year. I read probably 20 stories in a couple weeks. And most were adequately entertaining. One that I found particularly enjoyable was "Sno Ho" by Ethan Day. I read the reviews how it was laugh-out-loud hysterical, and true, the banter between the MC's (Boone in particular) was pretty funny. And I liked the humor...unapologetic without crossing the line. But

I adore the zaniness that is Ethan Day. I love Wade and Boone. I’ve fought my GR friend Monika for Boone and lost...but I’m holding fast onto Wade. Hear that? He’s mine! He is such a love and so in love with Boone it hurts. Ain’t love grand?

This entirely satisfactory sequel to Sno Ho took a little while to get to the inevitable climax and ‘facing the issues’ in Boone and Wade’s quick and lusty romance but the getting there was so very yummy and fun. I just love the snappy dialogue, Boone’s inner
This story is so funny! But made me think about how stupid humans can be

Why? Simple?
The aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaangst! OMG The main characters had so many doubts! "oh, is this right?"
"oh, I must think about this relationship"
"oh, I think it's not time to move on with him"
I can understand each question, and understand also some "jealousy" from Gabe but certainly all of them lost a precious time questioning their real feelings. It's not a problem of the book, but only an observation. I think it's a good

I feel like just writing I LOVED THIS BOOK, but that wouldn't be a very detailed review, so I'll try and give you a few reasons as to why that is. Oh, let me count the ways!

Life in Fusion picks up right where Sno Ho left off, with Boone newly back in Albuquerque, New Mexico and Wade still in Summit City, Colorado and Boone continuing to agree to move to Summit City at the end of six months.

The story fluctuates back and forth between the two cities, depending on who was visiting whom and you get

As deliciously snarky as the first book. Boone is definitely a character that I love. This addresses what happens after the HEA, uprooting your life and upsetting your friends when you find love and find yourself leaving parts of your old life behind.

I really felt for Gabe, a lot. The friendship between him and Boone was tight and seeing Gabe struggle with the changes was a bit heart-breaking. (view spoiler)

What can I say besides the inside of Ethan's head must be a three-ring circus? (Only in the nicest way possible, of course!). Seriously, though -- I fell in love with Boone and Wade in Sno Ho and I was a bit afraid to read LIF, simply because they were so dear to me. I'm sure I needn't tell anyone, but that was obviously a mistake. LIF accomplished the second part of Boone and Wade's story in such glorious spastic perfection that I was instantly smitten all over again. Besides (and for all I lov ...more

Some of Ethan Day's books are among my favorites of this genre but this one (along with Sno Ho and the Christmas themed one) was just ok. The first book was cute for a while with Boone's constant one-liners, but by this sequel I was saying out loud, give it a rest already. If I had a friend that was nothing but quick quips and wisecracks I don't think I could stand to be around him for more than five minutes. There's more to life than trying to be a modern day Dorothy Parker. There has to be som ...more
The snark-tastically funny, sexy, fast moving sequel to Sno Ho is everything I expected from that first sample. Boone is sticking to his 6 month plan before moving to Summit City with Wade. He’s worried about how fast things moved and the huge life-change has him rattled and insecure. He has to break the news to his childhood bestie Gabe too. The banter and wit flows fast and furious through long distance dating, weekend visits and meeting the parents. To me, there’s nothing better than a story ...more

A sequel of Sno Ho and next part of the Summit City series telling about the fun and sexy romance between Boone Daniels and Wade Walker.

The banter and the hotness are still there in spades. The bond between Boone and Wade is strong and evolving nicely for me. And all the supporting characters, the sense of friendship and family are a great touch that I enjoyed a lot.

Did I mention that I laughed and laughed ? It sure would be tiring to be in Boone's head or be the recipient of his constant chat

This is as hilarious as the first book and I didn't think it could be possible.

There is a lot of Boone and Wade in this book, but there's more about Boone and he's non-Wade life. It's about the six-month period before Boone moves to Summit City to live with Wade. Boone has to wrap his mind about the fact that he's truly fallen in love with Wade and he has to reconcile his new love with his old life. Boone and Wade are very much in love, but they are both sort of scared of the intensity of their
I admit I was nervous to read this second book after the first Sno Ho. I wasn't sure a longer book could keep things going. I'm glad to say I worried for nothing. Boone never failed me at all.

Book two takes us on Boones journey to move to Summit City to be with Wade. Along the way we get a closer insight to his best friend Gabe, a best friend since the age of five and a half.

We meet the twins who add a little sparkle to everything.

We get to meet the Asshole Phillip, who I end up kinda liking
LOOOVEEDDD this book. I could not stop laughing. I just love Ethan Day's sense of humor, his characters and their love stories.

What can I say I started this right after I finished Sno Ho #1 and it was just as fantastic. Boone, Wade their families, their friends, just so sweet, and funny and lovable. The twins :)

This book made me smiled and get teary eyed (in a very good way) and laugh my ass off like very other paragraph. Oh when Wade met Boone's parents, OMG so frigging FUNNY!!

This was a tricky one for me. I liked it since it was so funny but I also had some issues with it that dimmed my enjoyment of the story. While I did enjoy this one, I didn't like it as much as Sno Ho. :-/

LiF picks up literally where Sno Ho ended with Boone arriving home from the airport and having to deal with not having Wade in even the same state as he is. Boone is just as funny, though. I actually thought he was even more so because he just gets louder and louder and then his friends
No matter what you do, do NOT judge this book by its cover. Someone should take a sharpie marker to it and just scribble out both the faces. It's a crime that Wade and Boone were depicted in such an undelicious manner.

When last we met our two heroes Boone and Wade in Sno Ho #1, they had just met in Summit City and conducted a whirlwind romance in the wake of Boone's dumping by his douchebag of a boyfriend, Phillip. Thinking that he was going on his 1 year anniversary vacation with Phillip, Boon

This book was a really fun read and I loved it. I loved all the humor and snark and how I feel like I really got to know all the characters this time. I like how it picks up right where Sno Ho left off. We get to see Boone and Wade survive the 6 month trial period of their relationship and experience all the crazy, mostly hilarious, bumps along the way. There are many "cover your mouth" laugh out loud moments. Especially when Boone's parents are in the scene.

Cute, happy story and I hope Ethan p

Questo secondo volume è molto più corposo del primo libro che, a conti fatti, sembra quasi un prologo. Ripartiamo esattamente dove avevamo lasciato i nostri protagonisti: Boone sta tornando a casa sua, portandosi dietro l’amore per Wade, ma anche tutti i dubbi e le paure che questa neonata relazione comporta. Sei mesi sono pochi per decidere di stravolgere la propria vita sradicandosi dal posto dove si è sempre vissuto e da tutte le persone amate, per seguire un uomo che conosce da una settimana ...more

**Update on my re-read**

There isn't anything I can add to the review I wrote in June 2012. Boone is still the same guy I fell in love with the first time reading him, sometimes re-reads - especially after so much time has gone by - can be disappointing. I've found what I may have loved before doesn't work as well years later but this series has stayed with me. Wade and Boone's story is just as beautifully funny, snarky and romantic as the first time I read it.

I'm thrilled to death Ethan Day has

Boone aka butt boy is certifiable. All I know is, if this was a female lead, people would be ripping Boone to shreds. Since he's a drama queen gay guy, I guess it's okay. Double standards at its best. Seriously, just about everything about Boone DRIVES ME CRAZY! I should hate this crazy mo-fo. He's vain, irreverent, selfish, conceited, just everything bad. The bad stereotypes one sees for gay guys.

Boone's not really that way though. It's his facade to protect himself. He's kind of endearing tha

I'll perform a life-saving shortcut and say up front that I read the slurpy treat that was Sno Ho first before being compelled to jump into Life in Fusion.

The dialogue in Sno Ho is wonderfully crisp and fleshes out the persona of Boone much more effectively than telling us what he is like. As the narrator, Boone's a very likeable guy who makes you hope for his success. I adored that he is concerned about falling HOH with Wade after only a week. His decisions prove he has a head on his beautiful,
While I wasn't entirely convinced by the prequel, Sno Ho, I nevertheless enjoyed it and thought it was a fun read. Life in Fusion, however, is just annoying. Or ... scratch that, it's the protagonist, Boone, that is annoying. I just can't take him seriously; his "humor" is way too forced, he's so full of himself, and comes across as a 13- or 14-year-old teenager, which is something I managed to endure while reading the rather short Sno Ho, but being stuck in his mind for more than 300 pages? No, ...more
For what may be the first time in his life, Boone is attempting to make an adult decision in regards to a relationship. At the end of ‘Sno Ho’ he and Wade agreed to do the long-distance thing for six months and if they both still feel the same way at the end of that time, then Boone will move to Summit City and in with Wade. Phew! Wade, of course, wanted one month, but since he’s spoiled by the town and especially the Quad (I’m not telling), Boone persevered and got his six months. Now, they jus ...more

After finishing Sno Ho, I had to know what happens to Boone and Wade and whether they could turn a vacation fling into a relationship. I can't help but feel like I got short-changed with this book! I should say that I believe this is my first time reading a happy for now rather than a happily ever after, so that plays a big part, as I didn't like where it ended, it didn't tell me enough and I don't know if it works out for them and that frustrates me!

I have really enjoyed this series! Life in Fusion was just as good as the first book (which I thought might be a tough act to follow) and was a fabulous continuation of Boone and Wade's romance. Boone is possibly my favourite MC ever. He says the funniest things and made chuckle all the way through. I absolutely love his wit and sense of humour.

I loved Boone's friends and family. His parents were just the cutest and the twins totally cracked me up. I loved learning more about Gabe. I know he was

Life in Fusion, the sequel to Sno Ho, continues with the whirlwind life of Boone Daniels and his new boyfriend Wade as they try to get their relationship off the ground. While I really enjoyed Sno Ho, I have to say that Life in Fusion is the better book--with the exception of that horrible book-cover. It really does the book a disservice.

We find Boone bouncing off the walls after returning from Summit City, trying to put his life in order before he moves to be with Wade. We are introduced to a

This is book 2 of this series (Book 1 is Sno Ho) I was so eager to get to it since Sno Ho ended in a cliffy! Also, I was DYING to be entertained by Boone. That man literally had me laughing until I had tears pouring down my face. I love Boone’s relationship with his best friend Gabe. There’s a scene in this book that had me choked up. Friends like those 2 are so rare and I wanted to freeze that moment. What I love most about this book and Sno Ho, is that when it was done I sat down and thought. ...more

After the hot and steamy 'getting to know you' period that Sno Ho walks us through, Ethan Day's sequal Life in Fusion again follows the relationship my new favourite power couple Boone and Wade (they need a uni-name like Bade or Wane - sorta like Brangelina, Bennifer or rpatz... ewww forget that last one!)

God, I loved these books!! Ethan Day is one of the few m/m authors who can pull off the incredibly sexy sizzling scenes and throw a bunch of humor in the story. Nothing sexier than a man with a sense of humor.
My only complaints?? The cover is terrible!! I do not find either of these men sexy, not even handsome. It was a disappointment to see the cover after I already had a clear picture of what I imagined the characters to look like. It's almost like a shock to the system when you see the cover

I loved this book. It is the follow-up to Sno Ho where we dig in and get to see what really happens after the main characters fall in love quickly. It was great to see that Boone and Wade wrestled with the real life issues of starting a life together and didn't just live HEA without some struggles. These struggles made the seem more real to me. Ethan Day also dealt with the real jealousy that most BFFs go through when one of them falls in love and moves away (emotionally and physically) from the ...more
