About the Author

When I was a kid, there was only one thing I wanted to be:a superhero. Sure, every kid loves Batman, wishes to soar like Superman, and wants an invisible plane like Wonder Woman's (though I really wanted her ability to see it), but I wanted more than to watch and hang out with superheroes. I wanted to be one. So, I practiced my boxing skills while saying things like, "POW! Take that evil doer!" and I honed the skill of changing into costumes while in phone booths (to the great horror of my parents). But there came a day when my dreams were dashed--the day I realized being a klutz was not, in fact a super power, and my super-weakness for anything bright and shiny meant a magpie could easily defeat me in a test of wills. These days, I don't get to orbit space stations (and thank God, because I get motion sick on a merry-go-round), but I still get to wear the capes, leotards, and say things like, "Stand aside! This job calls for Writer Girl!"

More About the Author

When I was little, there was only one thing I wanted to be when I grew up: a superhero. Sadly, this goal was made moot when I realized that being a klutz was not in fact, a super power, and my super-weakness for anything bright and shiny meant that a magpie with self-control could easily defeat me in a battle of wills. Hence, the turn to writing as an occupation. I don't get to live on a secret space station orbiting the earth (and thank God, because I get motion sick on a merry-go-round), but I still get to wear leotards, a cape and say things like, "STAND ASIDE! THIS IS A JOB FOR WRITING-GIRL!" You can visit me at www.natashadeen.com.

With a lot of action and romance.
Glenda
Fun, quick reads, and I'd love to see Leo & Nessie's story expanded out to a full length book instead of just a short story.

I wanted to read something light but guess I'm just not cut out for a good rom com.

Format: Paperback
A book title like Sneakers, Sandals, and Stilettoes is sure to attract the attention of ladies everywhere, and readers won't be disappointed. Fairy-tales for the well-heeled woman-in-you princess is a delightful concept. Deen superbly delivers with the kind of wit and hilarity that leaves chuckles echoing, even after the book is put down.

The very nature of a fairy tale means anything can happen. Dreams can come true but the path to happiness is sure to be fraught with unexpected twists, earth-shattering disasters, and curses that seem irreversible!

Sneakers, Sandals, and Stilettoes contains two stories--The Genie's Curse and Shoe-in for Love. With a deft skill for weaving original romantic comedy, Deen places her romantically-inclined characters in situations more frustrating than the most lovelorn woman will likely ever have to endure. Her use of language lures readers to a place where they will be happily perplexed--pleased to read such unpredictable stories yet wondering how fairy-tale endings could ever result.

But with splendid style, Deen presents solutions that startle and astonish. And as if writing a compelling narrative is not enough, she delivers laugh-out-loud humor that saw me reading passages aloud to my husband and raving about the book to friends.

Five stars to Natasha Deen for Sneakers, Sandals, and Stilettoes.

The characters in this book jump off the page, grab you by the throat, and drag you into their world. The author has created a fun, flirty story that will have you coming back for more. A great summer read.

Two wonderful, witty, romantic stories all in one fabulous book. Natasha Deen has created characters that are so real, you actually feel like you know them. Her engaging, compelling voice is a perfect blend of humor and emotion. At the end, you'll find yourself sighing with contentment-and searching for more of Deen's books.

The writer has an interesting turn of phrase, and while this wasn't great, it's good enough to get us to try another of her books.
And the title's cool. My GF and I had a good laugh at it, with Siri reading it out to us. Great value.

Ms. Deen has two short stories here. The first is a little less predictable than the shorter second story.

I enjoyed the first story more even though it's not based in reality.

A quick read. Glad it was a freebie. 3 stars for me.
