Delilah and Isadora are half-sisters. After their father was sent to prison, their family’s reputation with the crème de la crème of society plummeted into the toilet. Until the day that the Perrault family fairy blesses Delilah with riches and an engagement to the man she loves. But does he love her in return or is he just after her new-found moola? At the same time, Isadora’s mother demands Izzy find the fairy and get a blessing, too. However, the fairy curses her instead. But is the curse a blessing in disguise?

This book has two separate yet concurrent stories. Delilah’s story is first and I like this one much better than Izzy’s story. I really like Delilah. She’s spunky, dominant and not an idiot even though she’s head-over-heels in love with the asshat Chas. Not a fan of him. Not even at the end. Poor Delilah. But she loves him so I hope she’s happy with her choice. At least she gets to flog him occasionally.

Story two is Izzy and Sam’s story. Isadora is a bitch and a useless snob. I can’t stand her. Sam is a moron for loving her. I love the curse the fairy bestows upon her worthless ass.  I wish it had never been lifted and that Sam came to his senses and found someone else. The end.


  1. lol asshat, yup, love your reviews and that you tell it like it is...sorry you didn't warm up to him :P
    on another note...the title is amusing

  2. Hah! Brilliant and very honest review, will avoid this one!!!

    1. Even with Chas the Asshat, I enjoyed Delilah's story. Maybe because she seems so shy and stuff but is a Domme underneath. LOL

  3. LOL I'll pass on this one but your review made me laugh. I used to enjoy the fairy tale that inspired this story, nice to see it updated.

    1. I need to read more fairy tale retellings. The ones (other than this one) I've managed to read have been pretty good.
