Summary

Marcus Snackenberg is a born ladykiller.

When Minnie Cooper moves back to her dad's hometown as a child, with her two brothers and Star Wars action figures in tow, they become immediate friends.

By junior high, Minnie, although unaware, is in love with him. Snack is completely in touch with his feelings for her.

Sometimes the villain in the story isn't a person. Sometimes it's time. And space. And fear. Fear of losing the best friend you've ever had.

Snack.

An overnight romance 26 years in the making.

A Great 2nd Chance Romance!!

I loved learning about the relationship of Minnie and Snack from when they met as children to growing up together.

This was such an easy listen, that I managed it in one sitting (well, while doing housework etc, lol). Angie Hickman did a great job of bringing the story to life.

I have other books by Emme Burton that I've not yet read, but after listening to Snack they're definitely going to be next on my TBR list.

✫✫ 3.5 Stars ✫✫

Cute love story with a bit of drama, bad timing and a lot of an again off again! I liked that this story tells us the past and present for these two characters. I love when a couple had a long history and I love a friends to lovers story but I gotta say something about the timing didn't work for me. I get that they were always meant to be together but I think it would have worked better if he had time to mourn before jumping in feet first. That for me made it feel like a rebound or something to the effect that he wasn't dealing with his reality. That is the only thing that really hurt this love story for me.

The narration was good, this is my first Angie Hickman and i enjoyed her work.

Great narration, ok story

While the narration was great, too many things in the story rubbed me the wrong way. I was not a fan of the hero or the heroine. I think even though they had a past, they moved way to quickly in my eyes in the present. Snack was a jerk to me. He got in his own way and prevented him and Minnie from being a couple.

On a good note, I really loved the narration. This was my first book from this narrator and I believe she did a great job. Look forward to listening to more books from her.

I want a Snack!

This was such a good book. I was a little unsure at first because the narrator's voice is a bit 'little girl-ish' but it really ended up working great. I totally loved the story also and I wish I had read this book even earlier. I love the name, the book/audible cover. It all works so well together! Snack was Mini's (both nick names) one and only from first meeting, but things just never worked out for them to be together when they finally tried a couple of times throughout the years. Then years later, after tragedy strikes, they come back together and what a whirlwind that was. This story goes back and forth between the past and present to explain the entire story, from the time they first met at 6 yrs old until the present. What I loved about this also was that Mini wasn't a girly girl, she had a sailor's mouth. So you have a narrator that sounds so sweet and cute and Mini was dirtier than a lot of alpha men. Snack was an alpha man, but could cry and show his feelings as well. I love that in a man, when they can express their feelings. I just loved this story and will definitely have to find some more books by Emme Burton to read.

Worth the Effort

Loved it! This story grabbed my attention from the opening sentence (delivered beautifully by Angie Hickman's narration) and did not let me go until the very end. Some of the negative reviews were very well explained but in all honesty, I could not agree with them. These characters were engaging, likable and compelling. They each did what they did for understandable reasons that I found quite plausible. I will look for more of Emme Burton's work and hope to savor every syllable. I was provided a free copy of this work in exchange for this review, but would gladly used an Audible credit for the opportunity to listen to this work.

Sweet Second Chance to Love

This was my first Emma Burton's book. This is a good second chance to love. Minnie and Snack's story is filled with twists and turns. The back and forth, past to present, is well done, and easy to follow. I love the ending. Angie Hickman did a great job with the narration. I enjoyed listening to this audiobook. This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

So many missed opportunities

This book really encompasses the feel of star crossed lovers missing their chance to be happy until the very end.

We follow the story of Snack and Mini as they try to find each other, while getting passages of their past and seeing how their relationship formed and ultimately crashed, before they reunite for good. The story moves along at a good pace and I enjoyed the narrator's voice. There could possibly be more play on male characters, but overall it was good.

The most heartbreaking scene for me was when Wookie got injured. I'm a huge animal lover and usually avoid anything of this nature, but that broke my heart.

Tame, Second...Third... Chance Romance

I say tame because there’s nothing in it that made my heart pound or feel deeply about. Snack always wanted to date Mini but her brother told him she was off limits in that capacity. Even when they tentatively approached a relationship in their senior year and ended being separated, Snack would not call it an end, but Mini accepted that it was. Fourteen years they lived apart and a tragedy allows them the opportunity to correct what should have been from the beginning.
I didn’t find anything about Snack to call him a strong Alpha, but he was a strong and kind man. I think Mini was too insecure to believe and trust in a relationship with him all those years ago and had to come to grips with the reality of his love matching hers. And the “sleepovers” certainly helped!

Angie Hickman is so talented it was joy to listen to her narrative.

Delightful!

This was a delightfully sweet story. I loved how nerdy, yet foul-mouthed, Minnie was. I also enjoyed Snacks undying claim on her. The narrator read the story well...pacing was good, and her emotion came across well.

I have to say that Emme Burton had some really great comedic lines too! She had me laughing out loud for sure, especially with the McGyver zip-lock line.

I'd definitely recommend this book.
