Fairy tale retelling
Happily - Chauncey Rogers

Happily is an unusual twist on the Cinderella fairy tale. The main character, in fact is not Cinderella, but a orphaned, street-smart girl named Laure. The cover says "No fairy godmother. No magic pumpkins. Just a grumpy girl and a glass slipper.", which really intrigued me. Laure was a cynical, wise-cracking teenager having to fend for herself, which usually meant stealing, since the death of her father. Her plan is to steal enough money to guarantee her escape from the kingdom of Ecarlate, a place she has come to despise. After stealing from a local spice merchant, her plans go awry and take a turn she never would have anticipated. 
I really enjoyed this book, and the author's fresh look at an old tale. I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!

Trial
Not So Happily Ever After - Christina Phillips

This book is #3 in the British Bad Boys series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  It is not necessary to read these in order, but it is enjoyable.

 

Mackenzie AKA "Mack" is still reeling for her feelings for her brother's best friend - when he appears at her door.  They are to help a mutual friend, and not ruin the careful truce that has been declared.  Can that actually work?

 

Will is not sure what to do or say.  He really wants a future with the girl that is just out of his reach.  He also wants a future where he gets to choose.  Maybe the strength will come by standing by the side of the woman who can make it all happen.

 

This was a great story.  I loved the banter with these two.  I really love this trope and hope to see more.  The book has all sorts of heat and sparks between this couple.  The pace moves along well.  I enjoy this series and hope to see more.  I give a 3/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

#29 - Isla and the happily ever after by Stephanie Perkins
Isla and the Happily Ever After - Stephanie Perkins

This was exactly what I needed after my kind of reading slump. This was a really beautiful story with a happy ending.

 

I liked the fact that we got a bit of the characters from the other books (Lola, Cricket, Anna…), this book is part of a trilogy but you do not really need to read all of them, but I totally recommend it because it is a great series.

 

Isla reminded me a lot of myself. She is really short (but actually still taller than me) and she got into a lot of situations that I could totally relate to. Like with Anna and the French Kiss, I really loved the fact that it took place in Paris and that the characters were going to places I’ve visited, just like their trip to Barcelona. It was also fun to read all these things about European teenagers who are different from American, it was really accurate.

 

The ending was absolutely beautiful; so many things happened that I was not expecting, it was cute and heartwarming. I definitely recommend this series.

Finding Mr. Happily Ever After: Xavier by Melissa Storm, Melissa McClone
Finding Mr. Happily Ever After: Xavier - Melissa McClone,Melissa Storm

 

Is the heartache worth the experience? Twice Jazz has come close to claiming the ultimate prize and twice her choices have come up short. Will the third time be the charm? Melissa Storm brings her thought provoking intuition. Melissa McClone brings her charm and heart to a tale of love, introspection and perhaps happily ever after. Two voices blend into one heartwarming tale.

Finding Mr. Happily Ever After: Chase by Melissa Storm and Melissa McClone
Finding Mr. Happily Ever After: Chase - Melissa McClone,Melissa Storm

 

Getting her feet wet, left Jazz with a bruised heart.  In the game of love, friendship can become a casualty.  With a heavy heart, Jasmine is moving on.  Her relationship with Nathan is a thing of the past, but the lessons she learned from it remain fresh in her mind. When she meets Chase, she sees a bright side to her broken heart.  Chase is her second chance.  Maybe this time she'll get it right.  But old habits die hard and if she's not careful, her heart could end up shattered this time around.  Jazz is naive in her outlook on love, but her ability to never give up on finding her true love is admirable.  I'm rooting for her.
