Never After

When I walked down the aisle all those years ago, I thought I was about to begin a fairytale romance...

I rode off into the sunset and fell off the end of the world.

Now my, should’ve been, Prince Charming is doing a stint behind bars, and my two kids and I have been dropped on our butts at the one place I never wanted to see again - the home of my witchy, poisoned-apple-gi

Never After is one of the cutest, funniest, original fairytale retellings I've ever read! The way Billie Dale seamlessly incorporated modern real life to fairytales has me begging for more! After learning her prince was really a con man, Snowy takes to doing whatever she can to make money and help her two kids. After meeting Elsa, Snowy and her decide on a plan and all it involves is a mask, a video camera, and some moans.

I laughed so hard throughout this novella. For the first time ever I wish

I haven't read anything by this author before, this was my first book
And I have to say it was good.

Snowy believed she found her Prince charming when he rescued her form her evil stepmother. Years later her husband is in jail after he stole from his clients, now she is back home living with her stepmother again.
When she crashes into Royal (yummm, lol) at her housekeeping job it looks like her life might be turning around, or is it?

This was one hot steamy dirty version of Snow White, bu

3 & 3/4 stars

This was my first read from Billie Dale, and although it's not my go-to genre, I enjoyed this reimaginged fairytale mashup! There were laugh out loud moments, as well as steaminess....all in all, I would recommend this quick read.

I had not had the pleasure of reading this author before and I'm so glad I read Never After a complete retelling on some fairytale characters. Very dirty set in today times retelling. Snowy believed she found her Prince charming who rescued her from her evil step mother. Flash forward years later her husband in jail after stealing from his clients and her and there two are back in her stepmother home living in her basement. She just wants to save money and get her kids out of there and cleaning

I love a good reworked fairytale but I usually have trouble reading modern day versions. I did not struggle at all with Never After. Billie Dale sucked me straight into her modern day story with a magical twist. I was captured and I didn’t want to escape. Snowy and Royal are close enough to the story for you to know who they are but modern enough for it to be different. The additions to other recognisable characters was excellent and I am looking forward to reading more about them. Pure genius w ...more

Had potential to be so much better

I really thought this would be a funny quirky enjoyable read. Instead it's almost as if an 8th grader wrote it. Well the premise of the story is humorous and there are a few things that are semi funny it just doesn't have what it takes to make it a truly good book.

Spelling errors and misspelled words take away from the storyline. The fact that in one sentence she blushes because she can't use a certain word and then the next she's constantly having a conversatio

An odd but enjoyable twist on the story of Snow White.
Snowy was down on her luck her and her teenagers living with her "wicked" stepmother. I felt bad for her life really dealt her a crappy hand.
Enter Royal and they start a very strange and mysterious game of dating with a secret internet sex connection on the side. When all secrets are revealed, the games are over they exploded. Hot as can be!!! Definitely not the innocent Snow White we are used to.
This book was fun and made me smile with each

This is a very fun take on Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. Snowy's life has fallen apart, and she and her teenagers end up living with the evil step-mother. When she crashes into Royal at her housekeeping job, things start to get interesting for her.

I really liked this but....

I really really liked this but,I just wish Royals and Snow’s relationship had played out better/differently....
I think Ms.Dale is very clever and witty, there were moments she had me laughing out loud....
Even when I dearly wanted to slap Dex that stupid “dwarf” like guy she worked for when he acted like 35 was ancient and old... BS!

Sorry for any potential spoilers................

I adored Royal and I thought he and Snow had great chemistry together but the story just d

You’ll laugh so hard you choke!

I do not recommend reading this at 2am when you’re trying to get your baby back to sleep! I seriously choked!!!
Otherwise, I definitely recommend this story. It’s hilarious and fun to see how she twists the characters we grew up with!

Ok guys, are you ready? I mean really ready? Ok you asked for it. I was kidnapped from my home and was laughing so hard I couldn't even catch a breath. Oh my goodness. Ok seriously now. Yes, it has it all. You couldn't tell with all the howling I was doing? Oh right. You can hear me when your reading. I'll yell louder next time. What you have here is a race against time. No! I'm still talking about this same read. Geez get it together peop

Well I can definitely say that this was NOT the fairy tale that I grew up with! :)

Snow has been through the wringer and hit rock bottom. There is nowhere else to go, but enter a new friend with an intriguing idea and maybe the future will have a change for the better. She will no longer have to clean up after the 7 lazy brothers and live with her evil step-witch (had to make that a w :)). But now she also has hot as hades Royal coming around. But Snow is realistic, Prince Charming is a dream and

This one is a short quick read. It was a really good read. Snowy thought she had found prince charming but it didn't turn out well. She ends up living with her stepmom. Snowy makes a new friend, Elsabeth. I loved Elsabeth. She had me laughing out loud at parts. Together Snowy and Elsabeth join together to make money to be able to get out of their current bad situations. Snowy meet Royal. Royal is super sexy and seems perfect. Snowy has already fell for prince charming who didn't turn out to be ...more

I really LOVED this book!! Never After is well written and is one of the cutest books I have ever read!! Billie Dale had me laughing out loud!! I honestly never thought I would be reading an adult Snow White fairytale bug I did and I LOVED it!! I especially like how the seven stepbrother's were written!! This book is a must read and I recommend it to everyone It's time to fall in love with Snow White all over again!!
Gimme a break. Did I read the same book all these other reviewers did?

I thought this would be clever and tongue in cheek fun but it was cheesy and painful to read. My eyes hurt from rolling them so much. This reads as if it was written by a horny college student in a creative writing class that they were struggling to pass.

I feel this deserves only 1 star but I'll give it 2 for effort and for naming all the dwarfs.

"I received an exclusive ARC copy of this book.". This book has a fantastic twist to snow white. Has some elements from the original but this one is so much more sexy. Loved this book. Exciting things happened. Loved the characters and names.

Tongue in cheek humor combined with massive snark, this is a quick witted tale about second chances.

After her "fairy tale" marriage fell apart leaving Snowy with two teen age children and no place to go but to her evil stepmothers, she finds her backbone and hires out to seven brothers as their pig stye, whoops, house cleaner. Then she meets their friend Royal, and her new friend Elsa and the ice flies,a and so does some heat. The author has a talent for off the wall humor, but needs to do a bi

I made it about a third of the way before I gave up... Not horrid, but not actually good either. Really a cute premise, but not particularly well executed - kinda like mediocre fan-fiction. I could see where it's going pretty clearly and didn't really want to go there. Would love to read a 'cleaner', better written version of this story. 2 stars for the basic concept and cast of characters - really very promising - unfortunately, other than a very few cute lines, it was just promises....

I loved this story overall. The way it's written and the twists put on the ol fairytales is great. I only wish the story wasnt so rushed at the end. At least to me it seemed that way.

Passable. Barely.
This is a pretty cool read. Simple and interesting.

I loved it. A spoof of Snow White and the seven dwarfs with sexy scenes and explicit language. A fun read.
Witchy Richey's Booktastic Reviews
A frolicking fun trip to happily ever after. I love the characters, tons of laughs and just an all around entertaining read!

You may know the story of Snow White and Elsa but you’ve never seen them so schmexy and hot.

And Royal will keep you guessing with his sexy green eyes and you’ll be wondering if he really is her white knight or the horses ass he rides in on.

A great re write of the classic fairy tale snow white.

Snowy thought she had the perfect life with her prince and 2 children, But now her husband is in jail.

She meets a new friend and possibly a new love interest.

This is a amazing book, with wonderful characters that will keep you reading to the end.
It has funny moments and plenty of romance.

This is a weird little read. After her break-up, Snowy Whittaker hangs out with talking animals, starts a business with Elsa who can freeze things, and her royal prince watches her strip on webcam. I would have stopped reading but I had to know what happens next.

I am volunteering to leave a review of this ARC book. This is my first Billie Dale book; and will not be my last. What a very unique plot. Loved the fairytale characters. It was so much fun to read this book. I'd even be willing to read more about Snowy and Royal.
