This is one of the best anthology I have ever had the benefit of reading. This collection of authors was some of the best in the field and they do not disappoint. This is some of the best fairy tales retold and let me say they did an awesome job putting a twist on already great stories. All of the authors did an amazing job and my favorite has to be Ripples by Aletha Roming, In a Strangers Bed by Sophia Jordan, and Bedtime Story by Skye Warren and that’s just a few because every story offered so ...more

KNOT by Lili Saint Germain

Fairy Tale this is soooo not!! If anybody can take a somewhat twisted fairy tale to begin with and contort it to the mind blowing, sexual undertone, dark prince rescuing a sheltered princess in a gangster world, it would be her.

Lili definitely brings her A game in this Rapunzel plot twist. And along for the ride she brought familiar faces I can't wait to read more about.

Xavier and Seraphina have already wormed their way into my heart and that was but a mere taste of the

Glamour is a collection of novellas by bestselling authors that are all contemporary fairytale retellings. I was lucky enough to read Music Box Girl by Sierra Simone.

This Twelve Dancing Princesses retelling was absolutely scorching, set the house on fire, HOT!


There is a little bit of everything in this taboo novella, which centers around 39 year old ex-soldier turned private investigator, Cal, and 19 year old ballerina, Tamsin. The story is told from both of their points of view and starts with

KNOT by Lili St. Germain

As always, Lili blows me away and pulls me in with her writing and story telling. An epic retelling of Rapunzel, with a naughty twist. Seraphina breaks my heart with her reactions and her childlike behavior Xavier is a dark chocolate naughty angel. I can't wait to have the rest of their story. I was hooked from the very first page!

Glamour is an anthology of 8 hot fairytales, not like the ones your Mama read to you, just so much better! Each one is written by one of my favourite authors, each one different, but all of them so hot and sexy. It is impossible to choose a favourite because they are all amazing! You have to read these fairytales, but be warned, keep your hubby close ladies, you'll need him😜😜

IN A STRANGER'S BED by Sophie Jordan
Rating: 5 Stars

I would like to thank Sophie Jordan for providing me with a copy of In A Stranger's Bed a short story from Glamour, for an honest review.

In A Stranger's Bed is a fantastic twist on Goldilocks. The setting is set in the Scotland countryside which provides a fantastic backdrop. Niall is the perfect grumpy, yummy Scottish big-bear. Considering this is a short-story I thought it was really well done and had a lot of content. This definitely has a lo

I read an ARC of Music Box Girl. I love when authors get the erotic spin of fairytale remakes right. Music Box Girl may be Sierra's most depraved story yet, and I am definitely here for every word. Her writing is so skilled. The kink almost poetic in how it flows into the storyline and the characters' development.

There were a couple of aspects of this story I'd never read about before, but they didn't turn me off in the least. Quite the contrary actually.

For a short, it packs a punch of both em

Leaving a review for ROYAL MATRESS by Nicola Rendell

This is a retelling of a beautiful fairytale , A Princess and The Pea. I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Lisa and Dave, and Grandma! I adored Dave! He's a gentleman with a naughty streak. He didn't care for royal bloodlines but he put his Royal Mattress to good use. Grandma was delightful!

I enjoyed this story so much that I'm excited to jump ahead and read all the stories in this book !

Ripple: The prince and the pauper was a delicious surprise written by Aleatha Romig! Short and sexy and vivid. Natalie is headed out of the country for Christmas holiday with her family. Dexter decides to intercept her and make her his.

This was amazing. I have always said Aleatha could write a phone book and I would read it. At first I despised Dexter but then through Ms Romigs magic story telling I adored him. Natalie became a strong heroine with a power she had no idea she possessed.

I read an advance copy of Music Box Girl, by Sierra Simone, and if the other stories are anything like it, I can't wait to read the entire collection. I can only describe Music Box Girl as gracefully dirty. Like the lithe ballerinas who spin and twirl throughout this story, Sierra Simone's words weave a story that had me transfixed. Beautiful and depraved, this reimagined twist on a fairy tale left my body and mind humming with curiosity and satisfaction. I love the idea of these modernized shor ...more

Well...I am a fairytale girl... This is a perfect book for me.
Since there are so many favourite authors in this book with different style stories, I have decided to write my thoughts about each one of them and rate them separately. Most of the stories are really dark, but let's not forget that the original fairy tales were also dark and with ambiguous endings before they became cartons and were filled with pink colours and rainbows.

A review of Ripples: A Prince and a Pauper story by Aleatha Romig

Recently, I read a rom-com by Aleatha Romig and with the cover of this anthology and the fact that it was a HEA fairytale book, I thought I would be getting more of that. Boy, was I in for a shock. Romig goes back to her roots with this suspenseful and deceitful tale. Sure there is romance and steam, but it’s twisty and shocked me a bit.

I don't want to say too much, because I don't want to ruin the twist for anyone... I enjoy

5 Stars!

How can you not give 5 stars to this amazing line-up of novellas from this amazing line up of authors! These stories are not your normal fairytale and there is something for everyone! My favorite is Bedtime Story by Skye Warren, which is a modern retelling of the Sleeping Beauty story. In her amazing Skye Warren way, she brings the story to life in the most unexpected of ways!

This is a must to add to your collection!

➦I've picked this anthology up because I love Sierra Simone and I'll pick up any book she releases. There are some authors in this little set that I have never read before and I was pleased to be able to read little samples of their writing.

➦So what will you get here? 8 novellas, all pretty short but some a bit lengthier than others. Modern re-tellings of fairytales about naughty ballerinas, damsels in distress seeking refuge, captives needing rescue and more. Some of these stories are your sta

This is definitely NOT your childhood fairytales! But this anthology is SOOOO HOT, STEAMY, and a great read of these author’s retelling of a childhood fairytale! Each author’s story is crazy, addicting good! This has to be the steamiest anthology of novellas that I have read AND they are not cheesy by any means.

Sierra Simone – I read everything that she writes. The Music Box scandalous at a whole new flexible level for a ballerina with messy shoes… Stay with me, Stay with me…

OMG!! THIS!!! Modern Spin with a Sexy Twist the Retelling of some of our childhood favorites....

MUSIC BOX GIRLS... by Sierra Simone is MOST DIFFERENTLY a one-click Author for me... A retelling of 12 Dancing Princesses.. Just enough electricity to melts your tutu's and ballet falts right off your body. Sierra Simone's Mind takes you RIGHT TO NEW LEVELS of HOT!!

Royal Mattress by Nicola Rendell ( a NEW Author to me) The retelling of The Princesses and The Pea WILL NEVER BE THE SAME... this version
This was SUCH a fun collection of dark, twisted, grown up fairy tales! These authors just blew me away with their short stories, that were written so well they didn't feel like short stories!
I loved reading Aleatha Romig's story. That was one messed up fairy tale! LOL. I love the dark, dubious consent stories and this one did not disappoint! Sierra Simone also wrote a great, really dirty take on the 12 princesses. Bedtime Story by Skye Warren was both sweet & sexy. You won't be disappointed in t

Wow! Am I glad I bought this book! Wonderful authors got together and shared with us these little gems of stories and I love them!

These are all terrific novellas in the unique styles that have made these authors favorites for all readers.

For instance, Skye Warren's Bedtime Story will grip your heart and not let it go. This encounter between a small town sheriff and our runaway mother will tug at your emotions. I want to read more about them. There is danger following this young single mother and

I had intended to choose a story to review and go from there, but I found it impossible to choose just one. Sorry not sorry. While a couple of the stories weren't my particular cup of tea, I can guarantee that many people will absolutely love them just the same. However, stories such as Royal Mattress by Nicola Rendall and Knot by Lili St Germain were right up my alley. One was a sweet romcom while the other was a dark read leading up to a new series. And yet they were equally satisfying.

Review of Ripples: A Prince and a Pauper story by Aleatha Romig

Dark, twisted and oh so very Aleatha Romig!!! Yeah, don’t let this book cover of this anthology fool you because it may look so nice and pretty but Aleatha’s novella is the one that will make you beg for more. I really enjoyed this one and my only complaint was that I wished it was longer.

It's such a fantastic idea for authors to come together to retell their version of classic fairytales. I'm so excited !!
Ripple tells the story of Dexter Smithers. He's as Dominating Alpha as they come. He's set his sights on young Natalie and just like an innocent Dove in the Hawk's crosshairs, she is ensnared by him. He goes to great , devious lengths to ambush and pluck her from her luxurious and doubtedly safe , velvet life and makes her his

They say not to judge a book by the cover and I definitely did when I saw this hot pink "Glamour." I expected a fun retelling of a fairytale and while this is a retelling it isn't at all what I expected. The story starts out quickly and continues to move quickly leaving you guessing with every chapter. I was actually shocked with the entire story and the ending left me wanting more.
