A new spin on an old tale...
His Fairy Godfather - Nico Jaye,Cate Ashwood

'His Fairy Godfather' gives the tale of Cinderella an entirely new look. It's every bit as cute as the Disney version and a whole lot sexier.

 

Patrick 'Trick' Grigsby is our Cinderella and while he doesn't have an evil stepmother and sisters. He does have a nasty piece of work boss with two total idiots for sons. Patrick or 'Trick' as he prefers to be called is literally slaving away at the architecture firm that his father started with his best friend years ago. It's an accidental meeting between Patrick and 'fairy godfather in training' Edwin that brings these two together. Edwin quickly realizes that Patrick is worthy of help and needs to be his charge. 

 

Despite the obstacles and there are some. Patrick and Edwin share a growing attraction that neither of them is full able to deny and while the burn was slow these two definitely have a steady blaze going in the latter half of the story. So while this story gets off to a slow start it still has some adorably sweet moments that kept me interested and entertained and the last half of the book was definitely worth the wait. 

 

Edwin and Patrick made a really cute couple and it was the development of their relationship and seeing them go from an accidental meeting to cautious acquaintances to friends with a growing attraction that made the slower pace at the beginning of the book worthwhile.  Edwin's sweet and curious nature is a balm for Patrick's soul after spending his workdays with the Redden clan and their nasty abusive ways and it's Edwin's naturally sweet and kind disposition that slowly breaks down the protective walls Patrick has erected to protect himself from the harshness that surrounds him allowing his innate goodness to resurface from deep inside of himself where he's kept it hidden.

 

While 'His Fairy Godfather' may have reminded me in general ways of the story of Cinderella there were a considerable number of differences that helped it to have its  own unique and fresh spin on a classic fairytale.

 

'His Fairy Godfather' is the perfect story to read if you're looking for something cute and sweet with an uncomplicated plot that's going to entertain you and leave you smiling.

Review: His Fairy Godfather
His Fairy Godfather - Nico Jaye,Cate Ashwood

Super fluff! Just what I needed.

I loved this modern day Cinderfella story. It was fun (and sad) to read about what Trick had to endure with his boss and the boss’ two evil sons. I thought it was genius how the authors came up with the idea to make Trick even more of a Cinderella when he was forced to clean the entire office, plus bathrooms.

I also fell very much in love with sweet, awkward fairy godfather in training, Edwin. He was just adorable. I loved how happy he was all the time.

I really wanted to give this 5 stars, but unfortunately I was missing the romance in the first 65%. I love a slow burn, but the relationship between Trick and Edwin felt like a friendship ‘til that point and nothing more. I wanted a bit more attraction going on. Even if it was only in their heads.

I do have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the romance when it did happen. These guys were wonderful together.

Such a heartwarming story. Perfect for the holidays.

Too long, and too short
The Frat Brat - Nico Jaye

It beats around the bush.



Only the last 30% is worth it. The rest is bordering on boring.

I know, the book is not even 50 pages long.

I asked my American teacher once what a fraternity is really about apart from those 'challenges' and 'crazy parties' we see in the movies and why would people want to belong to one.

He said he wasn't sure himself.

Well, this author is honest and blunt enough to say they serve the purpose of forming 'business connections in the future'.

Anyway, the sex scene at the end is hot, and I ended up liking the MCs then. But I couldn't push myself to care for everything written before that moment.
