He’s the hunter.
I’m his prey.

I've been sleepwalking through life—not living, just existing—working toward a future where I can actually breathe.

Until HE walks in.

Gabriel Jackson.
With his boy next door charm and dimpled grin, he jolts me awake.
He makes me want to feel the dark heat he promises. To live in the lust lurking behind his brown eyes.

But life isn't a fairy tal

3.5 stars

Our hero Gabriel is hitman who is hired by the bad guy of the book to kill our heroine Isabella. But as it goes in romance, he falls in love with her and decide to save her.

So I need to be honest and say I didn't expect much from this book and I was pleasantly surprised. First it was safe, second I really liked the characters and third it was hot and steamy.
I think the chemistry between characters was great which is really important to me because I would probably dnf it if it wasn't t

Awakening Hearts

Sleep, school and work...repeat. That is the extent of Isabella's life in a nut shell. She has struggled all her life with devastating personal tragedies, but has remained strong and independent. But all that takes a 360 degree turn when she meets Gabriel Jackson. As soon as their eyes meet, the electricity cackles between them. But Gabriel has an agenda and it does not include romance and a HEA.

Isabella is attracted to this dark and dangerous stranger and she quickly discovers

Not so Prince Charming by Lauren Landish a five-star read that will charm you. This is the second novel in the Dirty Fairytale Series and can be read as stand-alone, we do meet the other couple and characters, but each has their own story. This isn’t my favourite read by this author, but I did enjoy it, Gabriel shows us his dark side and his wings, he has such depth that they will bind you with their light. He is so much tastier than anything they could serve in the Gravy Train. Isabella is a ch ...more

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book. I’m so in love with this book. Izzy is amazing, she is smart, sassy and bull headed and will never accept help from anyone, she wants to make it on her own, but every now and then we all need a little help. When Gabe started showing up around the diner, he's gorgeous, sexy, all man and he's peaked her interest, made her feel things she didn’t think she’d feel again. Gabe kept coming around, making her smile, making her laugh, getting t ...more

Sissy's Romance Book Review
Not So Prince Charming by Lauren Landish is book Two in the A Dirty Fairy Tale Series. This is the story of Gabriel 'Gabe' Jackson and Isabelle 'Izzy' Turner. This can be a standalone book, but if like me you have read the first book 'Beauty and the Billionaire' then you will enjoy the past characters that are back in this one. Gabriel is a dark person after a life changing event. Now he is out for vengeance but also takes on dark jobs. Gabriel doesn't have many morals with his job but one is th ...more

Loving this Dirty Fairytale series. Each story can be read as a standalone, however the characters from the previous book do appear and are still intertwined in this story line. Gabriel Jackson, known to the outside world as the Fallen Angel has mission and that mission has name and a face...Isabelle Turner! Gabe's only rule is that he does not hurt innocents and this is where his conscious starts playing tricks because the more he gets to know his target, the more convinced he becomes that some ...more

Ahh the saga continues and so do the sexy couplings! This is the second book in the Dirty Fairy Tales series. I highly recommend reading Beauty and the Billionaire first because there is a continuing storyline that spans the series. There aren't cliffhangers per se but more like an underlying issue that is being dealt with over the separate stories.

Isabella "Izzy" Turner has had a rough life and that is a severe understatement. In waltzes mystery man, Gabriel "Gabe" Jackson. Izzy struggles with

Not So Prince Charming is another great book filled with wonderful characters, connections, steamy scenes and twists and turns. This book can be read as a stand-alone but is part of the Dirty Fairytale series!
Izzy has had a hard life but wants to be independent. She works, goes to school and has no time for herself. She’s got great friends with Mia and Charolette! I love their friendship.

Wow! What a read! Isabella has already been through so much in life, she hasn’t been dealt good cards for sure. Gabriel is out for revenge but when these two meet they find they have some things in common. This is a rollercoaster that will pull you in from the beginning.

Swoon! I adored Izzy and Gabe's romance. It is the second book in the Dirty Fairy Tale series of books. It is a standalone read but there are story elements and characters that reappear. The story captured and held my attention, the characters stole my heart and it was steamy enough to almost melt my kindle. With plenty of drama, suspense, emotions, danger, intensity, twists and passion this romance quickly pulled me in and kept me hooked all the way through. A truly delightful read! I am postin ...more

This book! This book has everything. Bad guys, good guys, hurt, anger and most of all love. Gabe meets Bella intentionally because he has been hired to kill her. But will he do it? Can he do it? Because she intrigues him. Excellent book!!! Loved every chapter!

5++++ stars for this bad boy that finds his good girl love story. This is book 2 following Beauty and the Billionaire. Isabella (Izzy) Turner is barely keeping her head above water with school, working, and trying to pay her bills. She will not accept any help from her friends even though they love her and want to help out. When a handsome dark stranger starts coming in to the Gravy Train where she works every night and seems to like Izzy she doesn't realize how much her boring difficult life is ...more

Gabriel heads into the night in search of his target. Gabe has a contract and the hit must be done, according to plan, in order to get the answers he is desperately seeking. Gabe is well seasoned in his profession, but he does have rules. No innocents. As he watches his target, he begins to have second thoughts.

Izzy works herself to the bone between the diner and school she is lucky to get a few hours sleep but even with all the extra work she can’t seem to get close to paying off Russel. Russel is the guy who owns the land her house is on and since his father died he raised the rates to support his drug habit.
Gabe has been hired by a man named Blackwell to take out Izzy but Gabe just can’t seem to bring himself to do it. Gabe is known as the Fallen Angel because he used to be good till someone killed

I really enjoyed this book and loved Gabe and Isabella! I loved the suspense and danger mixed with hot steamy romance - I couldn't put it down! This is the second book in the dirty fairy tales series and even though it is a stand alone, I would recommend reading the first one. You will understand all of the characters better. I can't wait to see what Blackwell will try do next...

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

What a great book that will keep you on edge. I devoured this book and couldn’t put it down. Gabe has been hired to kill Isabella ( Bella). But why? What’s the real reason? What will Gabe do? Is he falling for her? So much happens and I felt so many emotions for them. I voluntarily read an advanced readers copy and I highly recommend this book. No worries, there’s a very happy ever after.

I really enjoyed this twisted fairy tale about Izzy and Gabe! Would be assassins falling for their prey is a weakness for me, I love the power dynamics shifting, and there's always more danger and suspense in these types of stories. With all that going on you've got the growing feelings between the two and the passion builds, its super hot to watch (read) it all unfold. I'm also really invested now in the background story in this book and also the first one in the series, involving Blackwell. I ...more

Not So Prince Charming is the second book in the Dirty Fairy Tale Series, and although it is a stand-alone, I'd recommend reading the first book, Beauty and the Billionaire as the storyline and characters interchange from book one into book two.

This twisted fairy tale romance is filled with danger, suspense, twists and turns, drama, wonderful characters, explosive chemistry, steamy scenes, passion, love, and of course, a HEA.

I volunteered to review an advance reader copy of this book.

I was given an advanced copy for an honest review.
Gabe is a hitman, who is hired to kill Izzy (Isabella). He has a strong moral code (for a hitman) and will only kill people who he finds are truly evil. After studying "Bella" (the name he likes to think of her as), he discovers she is an innocent.
Isabella is clueless that anyone would want to kill her. She is a student and a waitress and full of pride.

It’s really hard to decide how to rate this book.

The good: the writing is excellent, the characters engaging with distinct voices and personalities. It’s a safe read, with no infidelity, no OW/OM drama, no manwhorishness. Though it requires a substantial suspension of disbelief (like big-time), the plot was interesting and well-paced.

The bad? The hero is a hitman, hired to kill the heroine. And hearing his inner thoughts about how he could simply push her off a cliff while they’re having sexyt

Another fantastic story from Lauren Landish, this one had me hooked from the start. What happens when an assassin begins to develop very real, love-ish feelings for his newest target? If you read Beauty and the Billionaire, you've met Bella, Mia's best friend, who is now the target simply because of her connection to Mia and Thomas. Kinda hard to believe that an assassin might have some type of morals, but Gabe does in this and doesn't believe in hurting innocents, and that sets the stage for an ...more
