Kiss That Frog by Cate Rowan
Kiss That Frog: A Modern Fairy Tale - Cate Rowan

***available in the Once Upon A Fairy Tale collection***

Sofia is frogsitting for her niece and developing quite a good rapport with Toad. Then, one day on a whim, she kisses Toad...And half an hour later, there's a strange man sitting in her apartment.


This story made me smile. It was super short, resulting in a feeling everything was resolved in quite a rush (they only knew each other—as humans—one afternoon), but it was super cute, and it didn't turn to the cultural-shock, time-travelling-hero-too-out-of-his-depth trope to keep things going.

Loved it.

A Happily Ever After of Her Own by Nadia Lee
A Happily Ever After of Her Own - Nadia Lee

***available in the Once Upon A Fairy Tale collection***

Melinda Lightfoot has the ability of travelling between our and the fairy tale realm. But one day she is caught trespassing in The Beauty and the Beast fairy tale and charged with kidnapping Beauty as the heroine disappears.

In order to overthrow her conviction as a Fairy Tale Killer, Melinda must return to the real world and find Beauty. She has three days to do it, and to make things even more complicated, Beast (in his studly princely form) decides to tag along.


This one was a hoot to read with Edward (Beast) experiencing cultural shock as he accompanied Melinda to the real world.

I liked both protagonists, though I wish the romance would've been developed a little bit better, but I guess the author was pressed for time.
The final resolution also felt a bit rushed, but "they all lived happily ever after".

Scrum by P.D. Singer Review (Free Short Story)
Scrum - P.D. Singer

One look at the Canadian rugby star now playing on his local team turns Robin Isley into a super-fan. He’ll attend practices, cheer every game, and bleed with every tackle, but he won’t come close enough to get an autograph or say a few words.

Yves Dubois' team runs faster, passes better, and scrums harder when Robin watches: they’ve been winning steadily. Yves has a blinding smile for Robin after practices, but never stops to talk.

Robin needs to know if Yves’ grin is only joy in the game. Finding out will be Robin’s birthday milestone, but first he needs to give himself the gift of courage.

Super short, super fun, free hit of rugby romance.

A good time was had by all.

Artistic License - Elle Pierson

 

Loved it! Another well written and developed story by author Lucy Parker.
I loved the characters, especially the fact that Sophie is an introvert; a courageous introvert that doesn't let that stop her from living her life. At the same time, the author doesn't shies from showing us the particulars of what make us introverts. It was nice to read a story in which love isn't shown as "all healing".
Her relationship with Mick was sweet and cute...except when it was HOT, lol
There were a number of moments that made me laugh out loud; like the moment when Sophie gives Mick a cup of tea _ black tea! _ in a Snoopy cup.
Trust me; you have to read it to see why it was so funny.
Sophie's clumsiness and Mick's good heart will surely stay with me for a long time.

Definitely recommended to readers who want to read romances that take their own sweet time, without feeling the urge to kill an overbearing, asshole alpha "douche".

Crashing the Net (Crashing, #1) by Samantha Wayland Review
Crashing the Net - Samantha Wayland

Mike comes to Moncton wanting nothing more than to play for the Ice Cats and finally live on his own terms. He’s broke, bruised, and covered from head to toe in cheap lube, but he isn’t going to let that stop him. All he needs is a place to live and some time to figure out how to reconcile who he really is with who everyone wants him to be.

Dumping three gallons of lube on the new kid is just another day at the office for Alexei. He knows exactly who he is: a goalie on the ice, a prankster in the locker room, and a man who knows better than to share his private life with anyone. He’s let people in before and it’s taught him that if he can’t have what he really wants, it’s better to be alone. 

Despite their apparent differences, an unlikely friendship grows. Neither of them could ever have guessed how much they really have in common.

Fun with hockey! This is an enjoyable sports romance. It needs a bit of stuff resolved to make it really good but I love the hockey details and I liked the characters. 

An easy read.
