A quick read, following the Jack and the Beanstalk tale. Jack meets and falls in love with Sam. There are adventures, danger, and smiles. The story did need more emotion to better like Jack and Sam.

I reached a copy of this story through Candid Book Reviews, and this is my unsolicited review.

Every mirror has a reflection, and Sam’s Quandary is Jack’s. 5 Stars!

This “Prelude” is an introduction from the eyes of Jack’s love interest, Sam, from the time they meet until Sam’s father takes ill.

He is homesick, but Jack prefers their life on the farm and is in fear of tempting the Giant because of all Jack’s transgressions. All that said, I loved this true character study of Sam.

I loved this different viewpoint of Jack's Magical Beanstalk. Reading it from Sam's prospective was very interesting and I truly loved it. Then to continue on to Sam facing obstacles and overcoming them just continued to hold my interest. I would definitely recommend this book to others.
I volunteered to read this book and leave an honest review.

This was a new and different take on this fairy tale that i haven't read before. A short sexy read from Sam's point of view was full of ups and downs but the constant was his love for Jack. The author really brings you in to see Sam's side of the story and how he saw his relationship with Jack and the characters surrounding their relationship. This m/m fairy tale captures your interest with the descriptions of all that goes o

This book reads like a gateway to the author’s imagination—the description isn’t overdone but tastefully crafted so that the reader clearly sees everything as if the characters were standing directly in front of them. Sam and Jack are endearing and their romance second to none. I really enjoyed this short story, the growth of the main characters relationship, the world they live in, and even the side characters; it’s a perfect and fun addition to the series.
