Review Copy : Purchased paperback
After her two best friends marry a blood-sucking vampire and furry-faced werewolf, Corinne D’Alessandro is making a vow of her own: NO interspecies dating. But when her editor asks her to investigate “leprechaun” sightings, the sassy New York reporter finds herself on the trail of the hottest story of the year—and the sexiest man alive…
His name is Luc, and he’s as gorgeous as any Prince Charming in any bedtime story. There’s just one problem: He’s not human, he’s fae. A captain of the Fae Queen’s Guard, Luc is on a dangerous mission—and he could use the help of a certain leprechaun-hunting reporter. But when their two worlds collide, the sparks begin to fly. If Corinne and Luc can’t control their lust—and focus on the villains in this story—their faerie-tale romance won’t end happily ever after…(from goodreads.com)
I picked this up on a whim at Walmart. I liked the title so I grabbed it.
Not Your Ordinary Faerie Tale was (I'm channeling Randy Jackson here) alright for me. This kind of series usually allows you to not have read the preceding books. There were past couples around to help out Luc and Corinne, but it didn't affect the book to not know who they were.
I liked most of the characters well enough I guess. I had to look at the blurb to remember Corinne's name. I knew it was something kinda fancy and french sounding, but by now it had slipped my mind. Luc did NOTHING for me. I think I might have actually found him somewhat unattractive.
A note to all Alpha Male "Heroes": If you kiss me because you want to shut me up, I will kick you (HARD) between the legs and then I will finish my thought.
Yeah - I'm off the PNR right now. On a side note, Larissa Ione's Immortal Rider comes out next week. I really liked the first in the series so...*finger's crossed*
I did find myself wondering if I'd like some of the earlier books more, but that's really neither here nor there. I think my biggest problem with this book is that I have been really off paranormal romance lately so I have zero tolerance for things that usually just bug me a tiny bit (i.e: unwelcome advances, male ponytails, cheesy couples from romances past)
Overall, this series is probably not bad and might try another one but Not Your Ordinary Faerie Tale didn't spark any real interest with me.
it was "meh" for me
