Alta and Zoe both write books that I enjoy reading. I’ve reviewed several of them here, and reviewed others on my GR and Zon page. The stories that they write on their own are dark, sexy, and hot. This one? This one raises the bar. Putting Alta and Zoe together means that we ended up with something hot, filthy, obscene, dark, and so sizzling hot, my Kindle burnt my fingers while I was reading it. I loved every single dirty word of it.
As you can guess, Snow and the Seven Huntsmen is a new take on Snow White. Only, there are no dwarves here. Instead, our dear Snow has 7 large and dominant alpha huntsmen that she has to deal with. Seven very, very large huntsmen with appropriately large spears. I mean, they can’t fight off the bad guys if their spears aren’t large enough, right?
So, the evil queen has locked Snow away in the dungeon after the death of her father. Snow has had no human contact for years and years. Her food gets shoved in through the door so she sees no one and no one sees her. No one talks to her, nothing. So when she hears voices one day, she knows that they are coming to kill her. She decides that she will escape out her window because there is nowhere else that she can go. However, that doesn’t stop these huge men from grabbing her and taking her away with them.
Snow is convinced that they are going to kill her, especially when they talk about having to have the heart in a box to send to the queen. Turns out that they are going to take the heart of a boar and put it in the box and tell the queen that it’s Snow’s heart. They have other plans for Snow, and they involve her very much alive and very much naked. When she tries to run away, the huntsmen find her and tell her that there’s no way she can escape from them, after all, they are huntsmen.
The huntsmen, Dagr, Odin, Jerrik, Magni, Tore, Steen, and Freyr, want to keep Snow and do terrible, horrible, sexy, hot, and perverse things to her, including punishing her. That both terrifies and arouses her. And holy fuck, there are some really, really sexy punishments going on in here. Let me just say that antlers have taken on a whole new meaning for me, and I’m wondering if I can get an antler chandelier for my house.
OK, it’s that time. It may sound like the guys are only hard on Snow, and they do use her hard, but they also take good care of her. They are very caring, in their own ways. They are nice guys, and I really like them from the start. Sometimes I have to warn up to the Alpha types, since they are all oh, I know better than you, and yeah, these guys were like that, but it didn’t get on my last nerve the way it sometimes does. I think it was because of their personalities. They are very much barely civilized and that alpha ‘tude fits. If you don’t like dark and really sexy, and a large amount of dick being swung around, then avoid this one. Me? I’m wondering how soon I can go back and read it.
These guys will do just about anything for Snow. I like that they take care of her, because yeah, it sounds like they are only rough, gruff men, but they truly value her and have her best interests at heart. They want to make sure that she is safe and sound. They even teach her how to use weapons.
I really like how Snow has a relationship with each of the guys and how each of them is so different, and they all meet some need in Snow, not necessarily sexual, but emotional. Just having someone who wants to be with her has to be a change from spending so many years locked away from all human contact.
Anyway, that’s it for today. Go over to the almighty Zon and check it out. Happy reading!
