Trapped. Afraid. Traumatized.
Claustrophobic panic overwhelms me.
Tall. Strong. Masculine.
Comes to my rescue.
His scent. His deep voice.
Too dangerous in the dark.
One magical kiss and I’m under his spell.
Then the lights come on. The trance is broken.
Reality returns.
My hero is NOT Prince Charming. Not by a long shot.
Brash. Bad boy billionaire. Too callous to care.
But he vows, “I’m the thief that’s stolen your heart.”

So focused. Such a liar.
He makes even me believe it too.
But it’s all a facade.
I’m not a princess. Fairy Tales are myths.
Happily ever after’s do not happen in real life.

Do they?

My Review

A new author for me. And I’m going back to check out her other stories. 

I loved it, a classic fairytale with a modern and adult twist. And it looks like a series too, so it’s a win-win. 

Rapunzel and d’Artagnan’s story starts with them being trapped in a lift together. There is definitely an instant attraction between them, but neither give it much thought…..

D’Artagnan has much more pressing matters to deal with, he needs to wrestle control of the family business away from his (evil) stepmother, and to keep her away from his sister. In order to do that he needs a wife! And as he doesn’t have time to wine, dine and woo a woman, he needs a fake wife, and he needs her now!!

Rapunzel (Zella) is such a great character, always the optimist, she usually can turn her have to most things. I loved her zeal for life. 

So when the main characters work out that they are familiar to one another (his sister is her best friend) you would think it would make it ok (she needs to help her friend, and he needs to rescue the business) 

So an arrangement is made, one fake marriage coming up…. 

But how can it be fake when each moment they spend together brings them closer? 

Cleverly written, I was rooting for the good guys, booing the bad guys and got to the end waaaaaay to quick!! 

So can D’Artagnan save the family business, rescue his sister, thwart the evil stepmother and get the girl? 

For those answers your going to have to read the book…..
