I will admit that I am a total sucker for a "Beauty and the Beast" type of story retelling. Sexy Fairy Tales - sign me up! I don't know what it is about the Beauty and the Beast story line (other than the huge library.. hello!) but it just gets me to click the book.
I was so engrossed in this book I got none of my "to-do" plans accomplished and took a total relaxing with a book day. Sometimes you just have to have a day like that, and today was that day for me. This book pulled me into the story and I was more than happy to stay in it...I blame Maddux!
Maddux Wilder has worked hard his whole life to be able to afford and have the power to execute his revenge on the man who killed his parents. Tonight at the Wilder Charity Ball, his plan will finally be executed. Except he didn't count on Arabella Cole offering herself up in service for her fathers debts.
Arabella had no idea that her father was in so much financial trouble until she eavesdropped outside the door at the ball. Her father is all the family she has left so sacrificing herself is done without a second thought.
The story gets that slow delicious sexual tension as they both struggle with their attraction and the chasm of issues that separate them. "...her mind acknowledged what her heart refused to accept...that not all fairy tales ended happily ever after."
I give this 5 gold stars! This was my first Erika Wilde book, but it will not be my last. Bring on more sexy dirty fairy tales.
Happy reading- keep things a little on the naughty side!
