What did I think????? Fun! Cute! And definitely a series to read if you are just looking for some plain old fashioned cuteness, fluff, goodness, sweet stories, fairytales, villainous characters, heroic characters, hope and some good girl power!
These are novellas, shorter novellas, which technically you could read separately but for the most enjoyment I would start at the beginning. Each builds on the previous one. The first book is Cinderella's story. We meet several characters, some are just a little blip and other characters start to show up in the following stories. But each novella after the first continues the story for all previous characters. You could read one novella in a quiet evening, or quiet morning, or quiet afternoon. Whenever you have a few minutes to spare!
I felt that the writing style and characters just got better the further I read. The novellas are short, like I mentioned before, so there's not a long drawn out back and forth, does he like me, does she like me, do they not like each other, back to they like me...you get the idea. But I will say even with the almost instalove, the author had a fun little explanation for that in the series that made it work. Plus remember people, it's a fairytale retelling. Fun and a suspension of reality! Go into reading this with that in mind and I can almost guarantee that you'll enjoy it!
There are typos scattered throughout but if you read the author's bio and acknowledgement pages it works. I liked how she said she knows there are flaws in the story, in the editing, in the writing but it's fun, it's hopeful and happy. And she just wants to bring some of that to everyone. If her stories do that then she has fulfilled what she set out to do. There are follow up fairytale box sets so more fun with the characters is to come in this crazy yet loveable little town of Silver Creek. I kept catching myself trying to figure out when a new character was introduced which fairtytale character/creature they were supposed to be.
Content: Overall the books are clean. Some of the characters admit to having sex in the past(not with each other but other unknown person(s)) but that they have made promises to themselves to stop and to treat their future spouse with respect and to wait for marriage. There are a couple make out scenes but nothing graphic or too steamy. I would let my older teenagers/YA read this and recommend it to anyone who enjoys fairytales in a modern day setting.
I received a copy from ebooks. All thoughts and opinions in the review are my own.
In Beauty and the Beast, the story line picks up after Cinderella. Cindee’s best friend, Belle is a hair stylist. While Belle is cutting Cindee’s hair, they see a dark figure passing in front of the salon several times. Belle thinks it is Adam Anderson, a hunky man she has seen around town. She asks Cindee about Adam and is told that everyone in town thinks he is a real beast. When Cindee leaves and Belle goes to close the salon, the large man is Gaston, a man that made Belle and her father flee California because of her father’s debt to him. This is another light, easy read.
In The Frogg Princess, Taya drives from Louisiana to start a new job at the sweet shop working for Cindee. She is trying to escape her ex-husband and start over. Her car basically dies as she arrives in Silver Creek and since she needs a ride to her new room in Ari’s cottage, Police officer Felix Frogg offers to drive her. A cute fun read.
Cinderella: I really love both Cindee and Henry. Priscilla is the perfect nemesis as well. Casting Cindee as a mechanic was a brilliant twist. While I never minded the "damsel in distress" element in most every fairytale, it's nice to have a strong female lead. Both Cindee and Henry have to overcome frustrating family situations, but as always - love overcomes all.
Beauty and the Beast: In this rendition, Belle is a hairstylist, not a bookworm. Our beast has a bad rep, but he's really just misunderstood. I love how the two of them are in denial of their attraction - truly they just don't want to admit it and run the risk of rejection. But isn't that was love is all about - taking that risk?
The Frogg Princess: Taya and Felix are simply adorable. She's had a bit of a rough go of it, and the last thing she wants is a relationship. Felix has been waiting for the right woman to come along, and Taya is it. While he never pushes her too hard, he makes it clear that he wants to be with her. I loved watching him slowly break down her walls and that she was able to find happiness after all her struggles.
