What I liked: Two beautiful women, bravery not requiring a man, and a clever twist on how Pea awakens Briar Rose. I adored the Cat (though I won't give any spoilers about his role). I liked the way their relationship unfolded. The writing is good; Ms. Bacio is a new author to me, and this was my first full story. I'm definitely interested in more.
What I had mixed feelings on: This could easily have been longer. I understand fully why it wasn't, and it was not necessary for it to be longer. But I wanted more about the magic. It felt like several plot strands were started and not finished. I'm hoping the lack of closure on a few things means we'll get to revisit this world many times, though. I sense several of the other characters might have their own stories to tell, and I want to hear them.
What I loved: This is off-the-charts sexy without being too much. It's explicit, and there's plenty of hot loving despite the short length. Yet it doesn't feel like too much or too graphic. There's an underlying tenderness and playfulness which I adored. Besides being good together in bed, Pea and Rose are simply two delightful women. I couldn't ask for better book girlfriends. I want to return to their world and keep reading about their adventures.
All in all, this was a good read, and I hope to see more of these characters in future installments.
However, the book was a little more rushed than I liked, given its short length. Had it been longer, the characters could have been better developed and more could have been added to the plot. There were moments and feelings that I feel needed more than 70 pages--I desperately wanted more pages because I was so captivated with everything that was going on. I also wish the book was written in first person, at least for Blair, but that's just for me and not something I'm faulting Bacio on.
Overall, the book was great. The writing was good, the plot was great, and lesbians are awesome, especially when they're princesses who are "supposed" to be with their prince. The ending suggests there could be a sequel one day, in the future, if Ms. Bacio is kind enough to give us one...

This story is a wonderfully cross of two fairytales, a sleeping Beauty locked in a tower and a fair maiden who couldn't sleep because the bed was too lumpy.
A quick read, this novel doesn't quite build enough strength behind its characters, who don't seem to have much depth than what their surfaces, and whose relationship doesn't quiet have a set start for emotional connection, but afterwards follows a predictable arch. At times it was hard to tell whose personality was whose, but in the end the only problems they had to deal with where internal and not created by a society that frowned upon or made fun of their relationship.
All that aside, I can't wait for the next book to see how this author creates her own fairytales.
