We first met Geneva in SkaterBoy when she was an absolute biatch to Hindley, over the series she has had quite a prominent role. We have seen her do some horrendous things in her bid to steel Rory away and we watched as she had a change of heart and worked hard to earn the forgiveness of her family and friends.
I never really liked her, nor did I believe the complete turnaround in her personality, I kind of think a leopard can’t change its spots so have been quite cynical towards Geneva and her nice side, I keep waiting for the old her to reappear.
In SnowBoy, while away for Dana & Peters wedding (of sorts as they are already married), Geneva meets Berk whose family owns the resort where they are staying. They are instantly attracted to each other, but Berks tragic past holds him back from completely letting himself feel for Geneva and her insecurities; caused by her own history, keep her from seeing them as anything other than a holiday romance.
I’m not disappointed by this book, even though I have rated it less than any other book in the series, I just don’t feel it holds a candle to either Hindley and Rory’s story or Dana and Peters. I fell in love with Rory from the off, which made it easy for me to fall in love with their story and Dana is such a colourful character that her tale had to be interesting. Geneva and Berk just didn’t have that kick for me, and I found them a little flat.
This is still a great romantic read and Kay Manis is an author with immense talent, I can’t wait for the next book and the conclusion to the X-Treme Boys series.

For Geneva, Hawaii is just a vacation spot to celebrate a friend's nuptials. Seven days of sun, sand, family and friends. A family that has grown to mean so much to her.
Both Berk and Geneva have painfully dark pasts they'd like to forget. They both hide their demons from each other. With Geneva's days on the island numbered, they figure their union will be nothing more than a quick romp. But among the heat and the lust, real feelings develop, on both their parts. And as Geneva's departure date looms nearer, the urgency to spend time together grips them stronger. Then Berk's past catches up with his present. An unexpected, and somewhat unwelcome, visitor arrives on the island disrupting the connection between Berk and Geneva. And quite possibly severing it completely.
Snow Boy was a lot of fun! Kay Manis has a creative use of words that had me laughing at some points, then the next moment things got so steamy my glasses could have fogged up. I have to point out we do meet Geneva prior to this book. And well, I never thought that I would ever root for her, but I did! For me, Geneva has been completely redeemed. She tries so hard to separate herself from who she was and the damage she did. Her family has forgiven her past wrongs and loves her tremendously. Now it's up to her to forgive herself.
Berk, sweet, hot, damaged Berk, made my heart hurt for him. Three years have passed since his world changed. We still don't know his full story, but we know enough. He's secluded himself from the world. Once a pro snow boarder, he now works at his family's resort. He doesn't speak about the circumstances that brought him there to anyone. His family knows and they've all allowed him the time to heal. But it took an unknowing, sassy blonde to reach the parts of him that he thought were sealed for good.
My gosh! When Berk and Geneva come together it's nothing short of smoking hotness. Those two in bed...or in a shower...or on a surfboard...or...or...or...yeah...s-i-z-z-l-e! Crank the AC up when you dive into this one. Sadly though, all good things must come to an end. And seriously the ending Kay Manis left us with opened a pit in my stomach and had my heart in my throat. I cannot wait for Geneva and Berk's conclusion in My Snow Boy.
So, here I am, about to write a review on this novel. It’s little perplexed about this one, to be honest. And here’s why:
First of all, the book is indeed well-written. No questions asked about it. The story has a nice flow and it centers on great characters who are very different from each other -in many ways. I was intrigued by the story and I definitely want to read the ending of Geneva and Berk.
But there are many things I loved about it and many things that didn’t feel right to me.
For one, the characters were well-developed and the author has created beautiful details about them, like the story about Berk’s name! I enjoyed those details, because they shone a different light on the characters and made the story more vibrant.
So, they were well-developed, but I just didn’t feel connected to them. It was like reading about their story but not being part of it. I felt like an outsider who was seeing everything but not actually living it. I liked Geneva and her ambiguous personality, because we all have many sides; we’re not confident all the time, we’re not sweet all the time, etc. I enjoyed how her one side blended into the other. Berk...He’s ambiguous, too. He has his issues that are a lot, I may add. He has this mysterious aura around him, but he is so honest at the same time. But I didn’t love-love him.
The story was intriguing, like I said. The characters’ backgrounds made it more interesting rather than where the story was actually heading. It was like two very interesting and different rivers of events met at a not-so-original place. I’m not saying it was dull. Not at all. It’s just that I was expecting more, because the characters were so cleverly created and their backgrounds were so unique.
Then, there’s the ending… On the one hand, I liked the twist, the subtle innuendos throughout the book that led to it and I agree with Geneva’s decision, and I actually felt like she found her strength in her own weak moment. She was crushed and hurt, but still found the strength to do what was right for her. So, I did a High-5 there! But then, the other thing comes up and the original, intriguing twist becomes not so original.
I am so confused about how to express my opinion and emotions about this book, because I want my words to reflect the truth but at the same time stay kind and objective. It’s true that I have high expectations of the books I read from now on. I want to read something spectacular, something that will stay with me, something that is more than the usual, typical stories and sexy scenes. So, my not so bright review could be due to this fact, because this book has very high rates on both Goodreads and Amazon -as does the entire series. So, maybe it’s just me. But this story could be more…
In the end, Snow Boy receives a 4- because it was well-written, with great characters.
And I bet you're all curious about the new X-treme Boy to fall in love with! Berk, beautifully broken Berk. He has gone through so much and even by the end of the book, you'll still be left with a million questions, which I hope will be cleared up in the concluding book, My Snow Boy. That boy still suffers and has a lot of pain from his past. He definitely has a lot to sort through before he can fully commit to Geneva, but with that dang cliffhanger, I have no idea whats going to happen.
I loved what they were for each other, Geneva was capable of bring some happiness back into Berk's life and peel back some of those layers of his past. They both have issues they're dealing with and they can heal each other, but they need to see that for themselves. Their chemistry is off the wall. Their relationship is eager, but patient at the same time. It felt natural to see them come together and gradually grow. And it felt like they've known each other for a long time. Their relationship felt very natural to me and it made it much more believable.
Geneva and I were soliders in a war against a silent enemy. Yeah, our time was fleeting, but somewhere inside, I knew I'd treasure my memories with her forever. She was slowly bringing me back to the land of the living.
Some of the Hawaiian references got to me and I guess that's one thing I'll naturally be critical towards, but when that occurs, I'll look past it and really focus on the story. I love Kay and the X-treme series, I've been a fan since the beginning and that won't change ;)
I'm glad we don't have to wait long for the conclusion, after reading the synopsis, I'm dying to know what's going to happen!

This is the fifth book in this series and Kay Manis did it again!!! What a fantastic story. It had me glued to my kindle from beginning to end.
I loved everything about this book except that it ended and I have to wait for the next book to see what is going to happen next. Author Kay Manis has a way with writing that draws you in and takes you on a ride that has you laughing one minute and your belly in knots the next. A few times I was afraid to flip to the next page because the angst was so intense.
This is Geneva’s story. She is the girl that I could not stand in the first few books. The author has a way with writing her characters that changed how I feel about Geneva. Geneva is in Hawaii for Dana’s wedding. She meets Berk, or as Geneva likes to call him “Poseidon”. The chemistry between them that is fantastic. There is an instant attraction between the two that felt real.
“Don’t look, don’t look. It’s like the sum. If you look at him, it could blind you.”
Berk has a dark past. After a tragic accident he escapes and goes to Hawaii to work on his family resort to try and get past all the pain from his past. He is not looking for a relationship but when Geneva shows up things start to change. I love how the author let this relationship build, and even though there was an attraction between the two, there was none of that insta-love crap. Berk had a very dominating side and I loved his dirty mouth.
“My chubby got fatter and pushed along the zipper of my shorts.”
“Come for me, Geneva,” he whispered next to my ear. This was so textbook romance novel, but oh my God, if it wasn’t working.”
This book just flows fantastically and will keep you hooked from start to finish. I am counting down the days for the next book because I need it like I need the air I breathe.
