Good Characters and story
Justin (Male Model Chronicles) (Volume 1) - Christi Snow,Mia Downing,Sarah Negovetich,Shauna Kruse,Joshua Scott Brown

Joshua was a hot male who had made a name as a  fitness model in a holiday lingerie show who had a kind heart. Joshua had also been in the Air force and loved to play video games.  Joshua had worked with the famous Mrs. Kruss and on a recommend he was hired with former military models. He was also to escort a famous model down the runway in a grand show. When Joshua went to the facility tv prepare it was another world with blatantly clad females some were nude. Joshua had no reaction other than a little embarrassment and confusing. Then Joshua saw Autumn  who seemed to be the organizer or body handler of sorts the first thought Joshua had was he wished she was handling his body. Autumn was having her own problems as she was the representative Layne Media. She was the event organizer joshua was was assigned to be property of Bianca who was a famous lingerie model and the legendary face of of Pandora’s Fantasy Lingerie. Bianca also had a stalker.  Then Pandora’s father created drama - the majority of pandora who was a manipulative narcissist. Autumn’ sister and partner was determined to have more of Pandora. Something from the past was affecting Autumn and her sisters relationship. Joshua became headline news as he was thrown into a media circus when he became engaged to the model. Joshua is very attracted to Autumn but now engaged because of his big heart and saving Bianca.  Autumn is attracted to Joshua and loves to play video games also.

I enjoyed reading this book. It was a fun fun read with some danger shot inI liked the fast pace and plot. I would have liked this to have been a little longer. I admired Autumn’s loyalty to to her sister even if I didn’t like her sister. There was, danger, heat hot models- especially males, romance, mystery, a meddling relative, gaming nerd, ex military, a stalker, and a lot more in this book. It was never explained - or I missed it- why younger Autumn took the blame for things that happened when she was eighteen. I liked the characters and the ins and outs and I recommend.

A stubborn modern-day heroine who learns a lesson or two along the way.
The Royal Deal (Chasing the Romantics, a Series of Original Fairy Tales Book 1) - Rosalind Driver

I write this review as a member of Rosie’s Book Review Team (authors, check here if you want to get your book reviewed) and thank her and the author for the ARC copy of the book, which I freely chose to review.

I love fairy tales. I know some of the classic ones are cruel, harsh, and less than politically correct, but I do love them. And I am always intrigued by new versions of old fairy tales, or completely new fairy tales.

This short fairy tale has elements of the classics: a King and father, insisting that his daughter must marry the man of his choice (for political reasons); a Princess and daughter, Faith, who wants to follow her heart (she hardly knows Jaeger, the young prince she is due to marry. She always assumed she would marry the older, more mature, Mikhail, who is known for his caring attitude towards his people, although she does not know him well either); a challenge/mission… This time, the princess is not just passively waiting for a prince to come and rescue her (although she hopes Mikhail, who has been missing for a long time, will come back before her 19th birthday when she is supposed to get married). She decides to go to her father and make a deal with him. She wants to prove that she is not a useless thing that needs looking after. Her father agrees that if she can survive for three months in the forest, without any outside help, she will be free to marry whomever, whenever.

Faith is headstrong, rushed, and impulsive. She knows that she lives a life where she is totally dependent on others, (princesses don’t even get dressed by themselves), and has been trying to learn how to do things for herself, but she soon realises she has not thought things through. She should have negotiated the conditions of her deal to her advantage (she does not even have appropriate shoes to wear, does not know how to light a fire, and has no weapons to defend herself from wild animals or any other dangers she might encounter).

Faith learns a lot in the three months she spends in the forest. She meets a hermit who helps her (despite her insistence that she does not want to cheat); she realises that she must think before she acts and that we need to learn to walk before we can run. Her beliefs are put to the test, as are her prejudices, and although she knows she has a specific role to play due to her position in life and she is not free to do as she likes, she cannot help but end up feeling quite close to the hermit.

The story, written in the third person, is made up of vivid vignettes illustrating both, Faith’s life in the castle at first, and then her attempts at survival in the forest (mostly unsuccessful and lucky escapes, including a lovely interlude with a bear cub). This is not a story about a girl who suddenly discovers she is good at everything and has a natural talent to survive in the wild. She makes mistakes, is sorely unprepared, and keeps getting into trouble. She is about to give up but the hermit helps her and convinces her to keep going. The story dedicates much more time to the first couple of days when we meet Faith and she goes into the forest, than it does to the rest of the three months. Although there are some stirrings of a possible romance, and Faith has to admit to having developed feelings for the hermit, she is more passionate about tasting some chocolate after not having tried it for a few months than she is about any of the men in her life.

As some other reviewers have noted, this is no magical fairy tale, this is the tale of a determined (obstinate?) girl who learns the value of being prepared, of working hard for what you want, and of being truly independent.

The big reveal will not be a surprise to most readers, although it does tie things up nicely, and the actual ending, which some readers feel is a bit rushed, I thought made perfect sense and proved that Faith had learned from her experience and grown up.

The actual fairy tale is shorter than the e-book length suggests, as it contains a sample of the next fairy tale in the series (that looks quite good too).

An original fairy tale, which could facilitate interesting discussions about female role models (beware of the mention of her purity, which might be difficult to explain to very young kids), and the first of what looks like a very interesting series.
