This is a fun, quick read that can be completed in a single cozy afternoon. I love fairy tales, especially featuring women who love women, and I especially like crossover/blended fairy tales. This is an erotic romance between the Princess and the Pea and Sleeping Beauty.

What I liked: Two beautiful women, bravery not requiring a man, and a clever twist on how Pea awakens Briar Rose. I adored the Cat (though I won't give any spoilers about his role). I liked the way their relationship unfolded. Th

I received a free copy of this book for an honest review

This story is a wonderfully cross of two fairytales, a sleeping Beauty locked in a tower and a fair maiden who couldn't sleep because the bed was too lumpy.

A quick read, this novel doesn't quite build enough strength behind its characters, who don't seem to have much depth than what their surfaces, and whose relationship doesn't quiet have a set start for emotional connection, but afterwards follows a predictable arch. At times it was hard

First off I have to say I love the cover art. Now for the actual story it was just okay to me. The characters seriously lack depth and well for lack of a better word - character. They were just so flat. The story was kind of fun though it also could have used with more substance to it. All in all it was just okay.

I loved this twist on the Sleeping Beauty and Princess and the Pea fairytales. The story is the perfect blend of sensual and sweet with a healthy dose of girl power. I can't wait for Ms. Bacio's next sexy tale.

A really interesting retelling of two fairy tales (Sleeping Beauty and The Princess and the Pea) with a nicely developed relationship between the two girls. I would love to read more about them.
