Jean-Michel La Grenouille has a lot going for him. He’s a prince. Handsome. Filthy rich. And definitely charming. But he also spent his first few years as a fly-catching, pond-dwelling frog. All that saved him was the kiss of The One, the girl who saw nobility through his slimy form and fell into True Love. Okay, fine. Technically she was a toddler who tried to eat him, bu ...more

My Thoughts:
This book is the sequel to Curses! A F**ked-Up Fairy Tale . If you haven’t picked up the first one, you should. You can read my review of that one HERE.

In this installment, the main character is Jean-Michel (the Frog Prince). Jean-Michel was cursed into frogdom, and then saved by his “one true love”. Only, in this story – he has to not only be kissed by her – but WED to her. So the story follows Jean-Michel as he re-finds and plans to wed

Can we take a second to admire the cover of this book? This, along with reading the synopsis of this book is what brought me into the world of the Frog Prince from the perspective of J.A. Kazimer. The very idea that a cover like this will appeal to anyone (like to me) says that Ms. Kazimer either knows her audience or knows the type of audience she wants to appeal to and that, ladies and gentlemen, is the kind of author I can appreciate.

No one should be surprised with what happens in this book.

A got an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of Book two in j.a. kazimer's 'F***ed-Up Fairy Tale' Series, and polished it off in about a week.

Where book one Followed R.J. (AKA Rumple Siltskin), a former professional villain, temporarily on leave due to a curse that forces him to act in a less than Villainous manner, book 2 follows the Frog Prince. Yes, THE Frog Prince. If anything this prince is less noble than R.J., his former best friend (their relationship hit a rough patch with the Frog Prince slept

I got an ARC from the writer!

Goofy. I didn't know that J. could keep up the same tone as in the first book, but she did: two utterly ruthless, unloveable people fall in love, and you both buy it and like the characters. The mystery didn't confound me as it did in Book 1, but it might have been because I was waiting for the twist to come around this time :) Plus, we get to see the characters from the first book pop back in, and they're just as evil as ever. Happily ever after isn't just for the n

Take one froggy prince and a sleepy princess. Add in screwed up family members, a trashed fairy godmother, a matchmaking cockroach and an acrimonious yet strangely loyal manservant and you have the start to a really messed up story. Watch out Saturday Night Live, Ms. Kazimer may have you beat in the hilarious skit category.

First he was a frog and then he wasn’t, but if he doesn’t get his act in gear, he will be a frog again. Jean-Michel La Grenouille must find the woman that broke his froggy cu

OMG, Froggy Style was just as PHENOMENAL as the first book in the series Curses!. Jean-Michel La Grenouille a.k.a. Kermit is such a funny character. I can't tell you the amount of times I literally laughed out loud. Don't get me wrong Princess Sleeping Beauty Vaniteuse and Lollie Bliss have some very funny things to say as well. I don't know how J.A. does it. She turns old fairy tale favorites into one heck of a hysterical story. She is a comic genius when she puts paper to pen (or fingers to ke ...more

Jean-Michel is the Frog Prince. As a boy he was kissed by a young princess, and turned into a boy. If he doesn’t marry the same princess, his, ‘One,’ then he will turn back into a frog. His fairy godmother thinks she has found his One, in the form of Sleeping Beauty. Jean-Michel is afraid she is right, so marriage plans are made. Afterwards Jean finds himself waking up after a night of drinking with a strange tattoo and a vague idea something is very wrong.

Once again, I have to give a huge thanks to my good friend, Bunny, for lending me Froggy Style. If not for her, the name J.A. Kazimer (probably) wouldn't have meant anything to me nor would I have been introduced to this amazing series. Thanks, Bunny! Secondly, if you haven't read the first book in this series - Curses! - please stop reading this review and go grab a copy! Seriously, do it. Now!

Jean-Michel La Grenouile is not your average prince. Sure, he is handsome, charming, and very rich, but there is something that overshadows all of the that. He is the fabled Frog Prince—the victim of a curse that caused him to spend his first several years in a pond on a fly-only diet. The kiss of his One broke the curse when he was eight, but with a caveat: he has to find and marry
I honestly do not know what to say about this book. I originally picked it up because the premise seemed interesting enough and let's face it, the cover of the book is pretty amusing. I'm a sucker for books that do their own spins on fairytales that we've all grown up with and have come to know, but this one was just off-the-wall and weird. So weird.

We all know the story of the "The Princess and the Frog", we all know what it entails - a frog needs the kiss of true love to break his curse or st

There's only one way to do it: Froggy Style!

A clever and nearly naughty tale of potential murder, intrigue, life changing deadlines, and mystery all set in a fairyland of characters we know from our past. A great concept and Ms. Kazimer pulls off this adult rendition of a fairy tale in a highly readable and enjoyable book.

The mix of actual fairy tale characters and slightly changed names kept this reader on his toes to recall/recognize them from the childhood stories is mixed well with local New

*Book source ~ A review copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.

Prince Jean-Michel Grenouille spent the first eight years of his life as a frog until the day a slobbery four-year-old princess came along to his pond and tried to eat him. It wasn’t exactly a kiss, but it worked to turn him back into a boy. Fast forward to a few weeks before his 30th birthday and he must marry his One or turn back into a frog. Forever. His drunken fairy godmother insists that Beauty is his One even wi

For the record, yes, you are seeing that correctly... There are two frogs doing the deed on the cover of this book... Take a moment... Just think about that... *shudder*

I wish I could say that the book gets better from there.... but I struggle with that. Jean-Michel is the Frog Prince. Cursed to remain a frog until The One frees him, he is finally released as an 8 year old boy by a 4 year old princess. But unlike the the classic version, it wasn't really a kiss that freed him. In this case, Viol

Terribly disappointed :/ The premise is great: Frog Prince lives his first 8 years as a frog, then gets kissed by "The One" turning him human. By the time he is 30 he must find get again and wed her else turn back amphibian. How this story is being fleshed out is driving me crazy. The writing: continually describing how hot the characters are and repeatedly using the same descriptive words and phrases. The characters: zero meat to them, I don't care a thing about a single one.

I loved the book so much that I couldn't keep it to myself. I eventually gave my copy to my cousin who enjoyed it as much as I did. The book had mystery, romance, and a lot of cheeky humor. Totally entertaining. I will have to buy another copy when I'm ready to reread this story. I hope the author will be creating more of these humorous adult versions of classic fairy tales characters. A good laugh is always welcomed.

The Hangover 2 of "Curses"- same general story but in a different setting, had some funny moments, but was entirely too long.
Favorite Quote: “What do you even know about this girl, Johnny? Other than she’s mentally unstable.”
My eyes narrowed. “Why do you say that?”
“She had sex with you, dear boy.” Elly shook her head and snorted. “The girl obviously has issues”

Fairy tales. I love my fairy tales and Froggy Style by J.A. Kazimer is a retelling I happen to like. I'm on a roll with picking books I like! The cover makes me laugh. The subtitle reads "A F***ed-Up Fairy Tale", and that's what it is. This is definitely a more adult...

Eh, this was ok. It didn't suck me in like curses did. I knew the twist around the 45% done mark and found myself reading just to find out if I was right. The ending was a bit lack luster. Can't say I'd recommend this one the way I did the 1st.

Yeah....not the best I've ever read. I was intrigued by the premise but found the writing style and narration a bit blah. It was fun to pick out all the reference to fairy tales/nursery rhymes but I wouldn't say I enjoyed the book overall.

I am one that does not like books written in the 1st person, but this one caught my eye and I was hooked. I laughed so hard throughout and couldn't put it down. This is one I would recommend for anyone that has a good humor and knows how life can really go!

What a delightfully wicked take on a childhood classic. Okay, maybe not delightful and not a classic, but it is wicked and seriously funny. Do not read this to your toddlers, enjoy it with a bracing cocktail!

thought it was cute at first, all the tie-ins and dropped references, then it got old, but yet I could not stop reading it....did end up liking the book and thinking it was a fun read. I bet it would have been even better as an audiobook though...going to look for others in the series as such.
