Gunned down by the hottest killer in the history of the Badass Archives wasn’t exactly Rapunzel’s end-game. But when her reputable extraction skills fail, she uses unorthodox methods to gain her freedom from the Mercenary, whose icy blue eyes have serious panty-dropping capabilities. Even though most girls wouldn’t fall for their would-be assassin, Rapunzel isn’t like most dames. Her major girl-boner for the Mercenary is so pathetically intense it verges on cliché.
Regardless, Rapunzel’s hands are tied. Love chooses its victims, not the other way around. She isn’t the stereotypical Damsel in Distress. Her Bad-Boy Prince Charming is a renowned mercenary, and her “Happy Ending” plays out like a bad movie. However, she is determined to find her freedom—love be damned—and she’ll do it in a fabulous pair of heels.
Where to start with this one! This isn't your ordinary fairy tale! Then again, with Sarah, they never are! She is genius when it comes to taking the traditional fairy tale we all know and twisting it into something completely new!
I am not going to go into the plot of the story too much. Reason being, I think you need to find out for yourself just how brilliant this book is!
Rapunzel, looking for Prince Charming? I think not. Rapunzel, looking to escape her life. Yes indeed.
We also have Flynn. I couldn't quite get a read on him. Is he her friend or foe? Does he want her; doesn't he want her.
I found myself wanting to punch someone in the throat so many times throughout this book! Back and forth. Kind of like the old verse, he loves me, he loves me not.
Between the great imagination of Sarah, the characters who speak to you and the ever-twisting plot, this book is definitely a good read. Even if fantasy and paranormal books aren't your thing, you will still love this story. I promise!
I specialize in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn’t only filled with hugs, kisses, unicorns, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn’t always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn’t mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit?
