Review: WICKEDLY CHARMING by Kristine Grayson

97954010From the back of the book:

He’s given up on happily-ever-after…

Cinderella’s Prince Charming is divorced and at a dead end. The new owner of a bookstore, Charming has given up on women, royalty, and anything that smacks of a future. That is, until he meets up with Mellie…

But she may be the key to happily-right-now…

Mellie is sick and tired of stepmothers being misunderstood. Vampires have redeemed their reputation, why shouldn’t stepmothers do the same? Then she runs into the handsomest, most charming man she’s ever met and discovers she’s going about her mission all wrong…

It’s only natural that sparks fly and magic ensues when these two fairy-tale refugees put their heads – and vulnerable hearts – together…

I thought that the premise of this book sounded cute, but it just didn’t work for me. I really couldn’t get past the fact that Cinderella and Prince Charming got a divorce. I know it’s silly, but I don’t want their happily ever after to not work! It bothered me so much that I couldn’t finish the book. What I read of WICKEDLY CHARMING was well written and clever. Just because it didn’t work for me doesn’t mean it wouldn’t work for someone else, so I’m giving away my copy. If you think this is a book that you would enjoy leave me a comment. I’ll pick a winner on Sunday. US addresses only, please!

  1. Hmmm…interesting premise. Does it give any back story to the divorce and why HEA didn’t work out?

  2. The only thing I read was that he wasn’t “charming” anymore. To me it made Cinderella seem like a bit of a witch. She takes his daughters away and he only sees them one week a year. There is a lot of great world-building, but I just couldn’t get past the Prince Charming and Cinderella stuff.

  3. I also think this sounds good.. I really want to give it a shot. I was hoping my library would have it, but sadly no. Here’s hoping I win so I can read it!

    Thanks!
