Reviewing books I love is often much more difficult than reviewing books that are just OK; Once Upon A Time is one of those books. I've been reading Blair Babylon's books for about four years but it seems like just yesterday. She writes compelling stories with characters that have complicated lives. I don't just read her books, I become immersed in the world she has created for her characters.
Her Billionaires in Disguise (BID) and Rock Stars in Disguise (RSID) series of books are all connected but they are also written so each series can be read as standalone stories. Even if you haven't read any of the other series (but I implore you to read them!) you will still be able to enjoy Flicka's series because of the background information that Blair puts in the story. And the thing about that background information is that it's written in such a way that it doesn't seem redundant if you are a fan and have read all of the other books, like I have.
Because I'm a reader who generally hates cliffhangers, I feel I must disclose that this is the first in what will be a series of 3 or 4 books, and you will definitely be left wanting more after reading it. But there's something other than the wonderful writing that keeps me reading Blair's books – even with cliffhangers – she has never yet failed to complete a series and she releases the books fairly close together so you aren't kept waiting forever for the next one (book 2 of this series is coming in a month). She also hasn't taken one book and chopped it up into multiple parts just to sell more books. This story has nearly 300 pages and, based on past history, the other books in the series will be just as long, if not longer.
It's hard for me talk about this story without giving too much away. Flicka married her prince but things aren't good. They had an agreement but he broke the rules and now she has to get away. Fans have been begging Blair to write Flicka's story and also one for another favorite character who's been around since the first BID story. It was a wonderful shock to find this much beloved character a prominent part of Flicka's story.
Flicka is a one-woman dynamo. Her organizational skills are awesome. Yes, she has unlimited help to carry out her wishes, but she is the ultimate organizer. It's just a shame that she isn't able to reorganize her life with the same efficiency.
I laughed and I cried while reading this much anticipated story. I can't wait to read the next one. Next month can't come soon enough for me.

Flicka can map her life out one event at a time. She knows what is expected of her. She plays the part to utter perfection. All the while her heart is screaming for more. She longs to destroy her perfect princess world. More than words can say she wants to live a life that she can never have. Two parts war within herself, and yet she knows she will always do what is expected of her since that is the only choice she can ever make. When the very foundation of her life is viciously shaken, she runs to the only man who has ever made her feel safe. Can she learn to shore up her protective shield one last time for the ultimate battle of her life, and can the heart learn to reset, move on, and try to live again?
I have been waiting for what feels like forever for this story! It feels like going home to revisit all of the wonderful characters from Blair’s previous series. I am tickled pink to delve deeper into the life of the reclusive princess and sister of Wulf. She always had so much more to her that I wanted to crack open and explore and now I am finally granted that wish. Oh happy day! Couple these incredible characters with Blair’s flawless and wickedly talented writing, and you have the recipe for literary perfection on a grand scale! Oh how I love visiting this literary heaven!
Blair Babylon sets my world on fire with her spectacular writing! This book is no exception. It is a marvelous start to a fantastic new series that is sure to amazing and delight all of her devoted readers and new readers alike. She is a refreshing delight to the world of staid and reused themes. She pushes you to the limit and then beyond until you realize that you are experiencing something so unique and grand that you can never truly wrap your mind or heart around it. It is a true mystery of the soul that will live and engrain itself onto every part of you.
