I don’t believe in fairy tales. I don’t believe in glass slippers. I don’t believe in Prince-Freaking-Charming. Cinderella can kiss my ass. I kiss frogs, sometimes even toads. I’ve given up on meeting Mr. Right, instead it seems all I meet is Mr. Wrong, Mr. Very-Wrong and even, Mr. Lets-Not-Even-Go-There. Fairy tales are for morons. Well, that’s what I thought until Gabriel Black barged through my life, turning everything upside down. He’s hot, sexy and little rough around the edges. But, there’s something dark inside, I can feel it, taste it and smell it. Now I’m left wondering if he’s my Prince Charming or my fairy tale villain. Will I ride away safely into the night, dreaming of happily ever after? Or, will I succumb to the poisonous apple lay among the forbidden fruit? Once Upon A Time… I met Gabriel Black.
Every girl wishes for a happily ever after. A prince who will sweep her off of her feet, one who will make every childhood fantasy come true. We all want the glass slipper and a magical ending filled with castles and dreams come true.
Well every girl except for Payton Miller. Having her heart broken by her first love, she has given love the proverbial middle finger and believes it’s for the weak. She’d rather have flings and fun and keep her heart in tact.
After meeting Gabriel Black, who by the way is freakin HOT with a capital “H”—she swoons. Practically keels over.
“I also think my vagina pretty much howled in delight before detaching itself from by body…”
No matter how Gabriel makes her feel, Payton still guards her heart and has so many doubts. Plus they’ll be working together. But how can you not fall for him?!!! It’s kinda unavoidable. Mr. TDD sets his sights on Payton, and he always gets what he wants. She tries to push him away and keep their relationship professional, but when he says things like this, how can you turn him down?!
“I won’t touch you, I won’t breathe you in, I won’t think about how you screamed when you shattered around me, I won’t remember how sweet your lips taste or how that Southern accent you try to hide beneath turns me on ten-fold when you’re angry. I won’t picture you when I’m taking a shower, I won’t run over every line, every curve, every contour of your body in my mind, I’ll push away the thoughts of you whimpering as I imagine sliding back inside your body.”
WOW!!! The chemistry between these two was CRAZY. Over the top scorching!
There were so many LOL moments and the secondary characters in this book were hilarious. SK Hartley sure knows how to capture humor. I haven’t read any of her books prior to this one, and I will definitely be checking them out. She will have you laughing so hard one minute and swooning the next. This was a great lighthearted read that I really enjoyed. Check it out!
