CHARMED... — Samantha knew she wasn't the first woman to feel brainwashed by her suburban utopia -- beautiful house, perfect children, attentive husband. But somehow none of it felt like hers. As it turns out, it wasn't. The kids are evil fiends, her husband's not even human, and her mother-in-law -- well, let's not even go there. — AND DANGEROUS

Erin (Paperbackstash) *Proud Book Hoarder*

Usually I don't care for this style much because cute and quirky turns into obnoxious and tiring, but in this case the style actually worked. It starts like a strange episode of a 1950's wife locked in a house with charming (alien-like) children and a perfect (controlling) husband, complete with friendly (spying) neighbors and an annoying (annoying!) mother-in-law. It doesn't take long for the MC to realize her fake life is as fake as it feels, and then the real fun starts.

Samantha Jones lives in an ideal suburban reality. She has her twin boys and she has her husband and she has her perfectly flipped blond hair and the neighbors who tell her how wonderful her life is and isn't she lucky to have such a wonderful home and wonderful car and wonderful wonderful wonderful. So why does Samantha feel like screaming? Why does she look at her children and wonder who they are and what is wrong with her that she mearly feels disgusted and fearful of her own children? Why ca ...more

“You can’t judge a book by its cover”
This book fits that saying perfectly. When I first picked out this book because it was recommended to me, I was honestly not looking forward to it. It just didn’t grab my attention, but in the end I gave this book a try.
When I began reading it, I will admit that it took me a chapter or so to get into it. In fact, it sat on my shelf for a week or two before I picked it up. But, boy oh boy did I get a surprise. The main character is actually a breath of fresh

I did enjoy this and will read additional books in the series.

Samantha is feeling - stifled - by her life. Handsome husband, beautiful twin boys, wonderful house - it just isn't feeling right to her. Then the milk man begins telling her to wake up. She finally realizes there is something odd happening. She discovers her husband isn't human (and let's not even discuss her mother-in-law), the twins are evil fiends, and the beautiful house and neighborhood aren't real - it is all a "construct" to k

This book was a serendipitous find on an endcap at Borders. I was drawn by the title and cover art, although I found the story itself didn't have much to do with the outward appearance. Samantha is a typical suburban desperate housewife, but lately she feels that her life and family are a little too perfect and unfamiliar. With the help of a mysterious stranger she realizes that she has been kidnapped and trapped in a fabricated reality by a fairy (here called the Kin or Peri) who is trying to g ...more

Interesting, but not exactly a "lighthearted, fun read" as TR BOOKreviews puts it. An the book is marketed under Paranormal Romance. More like fantasy/mystery. Though there is some "romance" in it, most of my Mystery books have more in them that this book does. Still it was a good read and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series--Crate & Peril. If this had been written by a gal I'd say that her domestic goddess was showing (note the title of this book and the next), but th ...more

It is a different idea for a paranormal romance. Shapeshifter faeries that aren't werewolves or other big land animals. The Kin once they get their calling usually change into some sort of bird but not always. Of course, they have longer lives. The construct was a neat idea also.
This was an alright read. Not great but not bad. I hope in future books the plot is more substantial.I have a feeling that Cor & Sam's love life will be one of those that are on and off again.
This was a cute book. I liked that her suburban life was all fake and that her real personality was so different then the one forced upon her in the construct. I liked Cor, though I felt like the relationship between them seemed a little forced to me. She just met him and then I think it was literally the next day they're wildly in love with each other? Really? I liked the idea of the Kin and the ravens were cool. Definitely have to be on the lookout for the next book.

This book started out great. It was fast moving. It was easy to read. The end however seems almost anticlimactic to me. It was not the same quality as the rest of the book. I did enjoy reading the book. I think I would purchase and read sequels in the future. It was definately well worth reading.

It was a fun book, the kind that would have been easy to swallow in an overnight gulp if I didn't have a toddler at the time. I can't say I loved it so much that I would want to read it over and over again, but I'd happily read further books in the series or potentially others by Warren.

I got this book off of BookMooch totally for the title and the cover art, not realizing it was Paranormal. Thank goodness I did! I thought this was an absolutely wonderful read and I can't wait to read more!
At first the story kind of threw me off. But after the first few chapters it caught my interest. It did get a bit dull at the very end but it was still a good story. Will try and read the next one.
It is a fast and light read, not a keeper, but it is entertaining. I may read the second book in the series.
