Publisher's Summary

Smart men never dabble with demons. I never claimed to be smart, but at least, I’m powerful enough to control them. When I bound Havoc to me nearly 300 years ago, I never realized how difficult he’d make my life, although “accidentally” lighting him on fire every now and then does bring a smile to my face.

Havoc is handsome, mysterious, and somehow, my closest companion, even if we don’t always get along. He’s more interested in bedding attractive women than protecting my life, which defeats the main reason a mage like me would have a demon. I even had to fight off swordsmen alone once because he was too busy betting on who’d survive. 

When 15 people are found dead with messages from a long-extinct cult, Havoc and I are forced to face our past and sort through our differences. We start to realize that there’s something more to this relationship, something that has kept us by each other’s sides for so long. Maybe, it took 300 years to finally understand my feelings for Havoc and realize that I can’t imagine being with anyone but him.

Havoc and I will do everything we can to stop the evil that is threatening the lives of the people I care about. Or destroy everything - we haven’t quite figured that out yet. 

Happy Endings is a 73K word novel that has an immensely powerful mage, a shapeshifting demon with a strong libido, a dark mage that just won’t stay dead, a spray bottle put to unusual uses, armor that is most definitely not made of dragon skin, blackmail involving an unfortunate slow-mo video, a detective being pursued by a determined minotaur, unprofessional use of illusions, and an epic walk into battle.

New-to-me narrator, beloved story

I loved Havoc and Miles's story the first time I read it, and listening to it made it even more enjoyable.

great story, just one thing

I didn't know the main character got pregnant... I feel like that's important to know at the beginning to know what you're getting into. I don't have a problem with the thought of a man getting pregnant, I mean this is about vampires and stuff, what part is more unrealistic? I just don't like kids, and pregnancy in general, let alone a plot point.

Still a really good story, and I'll check out the others as well.

incredible as always.

It's review time 🎧
Warning ⚠️: mm romance, fantasy, comedy, banter, sass.

Narrator score🎧 ; Wow! How i love Greg Boudreaux I really do! And as always he didn't disappoint, he just did an incredible job with Havoc and Miles. I loved the voice he gave Iya it was hilarious!

Level of steam🔥: well, only in alice winters land, the steamy moments were hot and funny! The banter and the games between the two 🤣🤣😍😍 i loved it soooo much!

Level of anxiety and sadness0😱😢: well, it is a comedy it really is.... but, we do have some flashbacks to the past of Miles that are sad indeed. And of course we have the drama of the story.

The book itself📖: I wait for Alice Winters books with bated breath, and no book if hers disappointed me.
This book was sooooo good. I loved everything about it. The details, the world that was crafted so carefully and with care.
Even if its a comedy, the story is smart, we have a very unclear goal that we want to get to.
Havoc is the most sassy demon in the world of demons!!!!
Iya is a perfect character. And apparently the keeper of the woods loved coffee and he is the most adorable creature in the whole world!!!!!!!!!

Miles and Havoc - who cares!

Ridiculous arguments between miles and havoc dominate the plot. Who really cares about what else is happening because it is drowned out by their trivial relationship spats.

Beyond ecstatic!

I loved the book when it came out - everything about it was unique, hilarious, magical and totally brilliant! I became an Alice Winters fan immediately. The book doesn't really end on a cliffhanger per se, there is an unresolved issue but I was quite happy with the way it ended. I was happy to hear that there would be a sequel (loved it, by the way!).
Then I heard rumors of audiobook and then that Greg Boudreaux would be narrating, I held my breath because 2020... When it came out, I didn't hesitate to use a credit to get it!
Great story, world building accompanied by excellent narration 😍
So I wrote all of this to say one of the best credits EVER spent, period!❤❤❤

a MIXED bag

The plot was decent, but the love story aspect was not very good. The writing surrounding the majority of the story was good, but the interactions that were a part of the love story were stilted and didn't flow very well.

Hysterical!

This book had me laughing out loud! The combination of the authors writing and the narrator’s portrayal of the characters is perfect. The humor and the ridiculousness carries across so well in this narration. I look forward to more books by this author.

A match made in......

This was the first book I read by Alice Winters and have since devoured anything with her name on it. Miles and Havoc are a great partnership lots of laughs and snark. The secondary characters were just as good!

can't decide if it's really awful or nice

The narration is good.
The plot has great potential, but some really off-putting moments like, a terrible attack happened as a plot device to bring main characters closer, but straight after, the main character just sits there drinking tea chilling, never giving a thought to whoever tried to kill him. These moments ruined the flow for me.
The characters feel very hollow and undeveloped, with very shallow emotional connection - would have been great if the emotions were developed a bit more.
Intimate scenes felt empty and boring.

The only thing that kept me going to the end was the banter, sarcasm and humour, I LOLd many times.

Not the usual standard

This isn’t half as good as many of Alice Winters’ other books. I really struggled to keep my attention on it, and had to repeat the last two hours several times to get through it as I’d fallen asleep, or got distracted and didn’t listen properly. That never happens with a good book. Good narrator, though!

Fantastic!

This was the first book I read by Alice Winters and I'm so glad it's finally available on audio. As you'd expect from Alice, it's hilarious and has a fantastic story line, the characters are amazing and I never wanted it to end.
Greg Boudreaux did a fantastic job bringing these characters to live, definitely looking forward to the second part
Worth the wait!

Enjoyable, quirky and fun

Miles is the strongest mage alive, his familiar is a demon named Havoc together they have to solve a mystery of deaths that is tied to their pasts. If they don't they could be next.

I liked listening to this book, the narrator did a fine job of portraying the characters. Miles and Havoc are op'ed characters( overpowered) and i found that to be okay in the context of the book because its meant to be action-comedy. Sometimes i felt that the humour was not needed and that could make readers get tired of the book. The secondary characters were interesting and added more fun to the book. Just a tiny bit of forgetting who is who sometimes.
Overall though i recommend the audio book its a good listen. Just make sure you have your headphones on because it does get hot and heavy in some scenes.

Great new series

A great new series from Alice Winters. The snark is strong with this one- the first opening scene had me laughing out loud . She creates very likable characters that are never too serious but always get the job done. I highly recommend this book , treat yourself and have a listen.

Some hilarious parts

Not expecting much, I start listening to happy endings while out for a walk. I found myself trying to control my laughter while walking past a lot of people out walking on a sunny day. Needless to say I got a lot of strange looks. Definitely a lot of good potential for this book. I can imagine it would make a great tv show. The m/m romance of two of the main characters is sweet, funny and something different from the usual ones. Look forward to trying some other books of the author.

Looking forward to the next one

This was a great start. I loved reading the interaction between Havic and Miles, so funny 😂 .

I really enjoyed how irreverent Miles is when it comes to his own power and his position within the magical community.

Such a fun read.

You can't beat this narration!!

There are simply not enough stars for this one!!!

I read and listened to this one by the magic that is Kindle Whispersync. The narrator Greg Boudreux is an absolute genius! Every character had a unique voice so you always knew who was speaking, and his comedic timing was on point every single time! I loved how in a frustrating conversation with Havoc he could simultaneously make Miles sound like the extremely powerful mage that he is, but also a bit of a whiner! Now that is talent!

I think Alice Winters is one of those authors were you either enjoy her humour, or you don't. Me, I LOVE it. I love the banter between the straitlaced (or in Havoc's case, just more dead pan humoured) guy and the snarky quirky individual who loves bringing straight guy out of his shell.

This combination worked. Havoc is aptly named, it's easy to see why other mages have had to brutally control him as under them he would have indeed caused havoc! Apart from Miles being incredibly powerful, he also gives Havoc a level of freedom, and in turn Havoc (mostly) does what he is told. Although, he's also independent - hence the opening scene (no spoilers!!)

The whole cast of characters were hilarious, and now that Miles has formed his 'Scooby Gang' I can't wait to see what they get up to in the next book!

I absolutely adored everything about this one, if you enjoy campy, quirky, snarky, madcap, and sometimes OTT humour and action with a HUGE dosing of steam, then I'd highly recommend this one.

Funny, snarky

This author is a hit-or-miss one for me, I enjoy some books such as this one and others I haven’t even finished. This book puts hilarious characters in highly improbable situations that you just have to laugh at. The snark and witty banter etween the main characters make the violent scenes more shocking, though.

Great to listen

Greg Boudreaux brings such excellence to the telling, such humour too. There were quite a few parts where I laughed out loud. Ticks all the boxes.
