Release Blitz -- S.K. Hartley ~V~

Once Upon A Time  

 I don't believe in fairy tales. I don't believe in glass slippers. I don't believe in Prince-Freaking-Charming.

Cinderella can kiss my ass.

I kiss frogs, sometimes even toads. I've given up on meeting Mr. Right, instead it seems all I meet is Mr. Wrong, Mr. Very-Wrong and even, Mr. Lets-Not-Even-Go-There.

Fairy tales are for morons.

Well, that's what I thought until Gabriel Black barged through my life, turning everything upside down. He's hot, sexy and little rough around the edges. But, he's hiding something, something deep. I can feel it, taste it and smell it.

Now I'm left wondering if he's my Prince Charming or my fairy tale villain. Will I ride away safely into the night, dreaming of happily ever afters? Or, will I stumble and fall in ridiculously high heels only meant for women with a death wish?

Once Upon A Time... I met Gabriel Black.

“He was my Prince Charming, the one who could sweep me off my feet while belly laughing at his silly jokes. Fast forward to college. We were still together, still very much inseparable and pretty much in love. He claimed all of my firsts as I did for him. Everything was perfect…or so I thought.”

Payton Miller no longer believes in happily ever after…or fairytale love stories.  Having your heart shattered will do that to a girl.  Getting over the loss of her Prince Charming has done great things for her working career though.

Payton can put in the hours necessary to become what she’s always wanted, a PR account manager. In the meantime, her boss Kate, definitely keeps her busy with whatever she can…until one day, Payton gets a break.  She is finally asked to meet with a potential client!  Of course, her nerves are through the roof because this is the absolute first time Payton has been able to do something like this.  She had no idea whom she was going to meet…or that it would be the beginning of a story not unlike the very fairytales she avoids.

“What? Just because you don’t believe in fairy tales, it doesn’t mean they aren’t real.  Come on, Pay, from what you’ve told me this guy is pretty much you but with a dick. He’s met his match and he loves it, that’s why he’s getting a kick out of it. You’re exactly the same. You like that he challenges you, catches you by surprise and could f*** you into next week if you asked him.  He’s Prince Charming material in his own way. He may not ride a white horse and you might not be a damsel in distress, but he could sweep you off your feet just as fast.”

This is one of those books where you just love getting lost in.  It’s an easy love story with plenty of twists and turns, not unlike a true fairytale.  Hartley does a fantastic job in Once Upon a Time in that although it takes from Cinderella, it is truly original and fun.  I loved every word, and how her British “accent” came out from time to time…it makes it that much better.
