This is a review for Midnight: A Violet Queen Prequel by Cora Kenborn and Lexi C. Floss.

Cyn is a 21 year old woman who is having a bad day, until it gets worse... or maybe better, if we see it from another perspective. She has to substitute her evil stepsister in a commercial, and she isn't in her element. Her partner is the handsome CEO of Midnight Enterprises, Kellen. Something sparks his interest in Cyn and tries to find more about her, but like the Cinderella she is, she runs away before mid

Fractured Fairy Tales is a superb anthology. I was super delighted to see some authors I already love and some new to me authors. Each story I finished I just wanted more of the story..they were that good!!!

Special shout out to Midnight. This is a prequel to what is coming and I’m so excited about it I can’t wait.

If you like retelling of fairy tales then I highly recommend this anthology.

Can’t wait to read more from each of these authors.

Midnight: A Violet Queen Prequel Review

Lexi and Cora hit a homerun with their story!!!
Kellen and Cyn appear to be an unlikely pair.
The billionaire playboy had finally met his match with Cyn.
Will she fall for his seductive charm or run the other way?
This is a must read.

Review for Midnight: A Violet Queen Prequel by Cora Kenborn and Lexi C. Floss.

This is a fun prequel and introduction to an upcoming dark romance trilogy set in this world.
It's a contemporary fairy-tale retelling loosely based on Cinderella.
I found this to be an easy and fun read that was as sexy as it was humorous.
Its dual POV so we get both Kellen and Cyn its also a collaboration between two separate authors and got to say it works and was seamless in its transactions, you can't tell who's writ

There is so much to love about reading this anthology as it is a retelling of some of those time cherished fairytales and fables that one has grown up reading. Author collaborations are a favorite of mine made even better when I get introduced to new ones. In Ella’s Prince by Julie Morgan, the reader is taken into the world of Alice in Wonderland and meet Joseph when he travels down the rabbit hole into a whole new world. What will he encounter and who can he trust? Tick tock, tick tock

Review of Midnight
A sweet start to what I know will be ano amazing trilogy by these two wonderful authors.
A story of a modern day Cinderella with a shoe that fit of sizzling heat. This introduction brings us Cyn and Kellen, a book boyfriend I can predict will be claimed by many readers. The chemistry and banter between these characters make for some of the best scenes in the book.
I am loving this pairing of these two authors and can't see where the story goes.

This is a review of Midnight, by Lexi C. Foss and Cora Kenborn. Their collaboration is a modern day spin of the classic fairytale of Cinderella. I was pleasantly surprised that this was actually a pretty tame and light read compared to their normally darker works. My attention was captured from the very beginning. I loved the way Cyn and Kellen met and their witty, tell it like it is banter back and forth . Of course, the tantalizing chemistry between these two is super hot. I loved watching the ...more

Midnight 🖤🖤🖤🖤🖤

I was so excited to start this anthology because I couldn't wait to read Midnight - A Violent Queen prequel, so obviously I had to start there.

Midnight was a fantastic slightly different take on a Cinderella retelling with added darker elements that made me love it even more. 

Kellan and Cyn have instant hot as fuxk chemistry, they have a great connection and their witty banter was addictive. They're sweet and spicy the perfect blend of naughty and nice. I loved them together.

This is a really creative collection of re-telling of famous fairy tales. Some are beyond amazing and others are wildly shocking. Each story was well written and each author took a creative direction with their story. I was please as to see how such a familiar tale could be re-directed into something so different. These are not what I would consider full length stories, more novella length but I can see each of the authors expanding on them later or creating their own series from them. I think t ...more

A Masterful retelling of classic tales

A masterpiece in the making.

There have been a lot of retellings of classic fairy tales written but when done right it stands on it's own merits, and baby did these authors get it right. So many fresh takes on some already great classics.

*WILL update as I read more.

Midnight by Lexi C. Foss and Cora Kenborn took the story of Cinderella and remixed it for the modern day and added some sexy spiciness to it. I loved Kellen and Cyn's banter from the start, and I

Cyn & Kellan

I just absolutely loved this collaboration of Cora Kenborn and Lexi C Foss!❤
Cyn is caught between a rock and a hard place when her bratty stepsister decides to no show the commercial shoot. Cyn is definitely the meek Cinderella when she meets the handsome Kellan. There's an immediate attraction, when Cyn leaves the shoot she accidentally leaves her sketchbook behind with her fashion sketches. Cyn needs her sketchbook back, but is she ready to see Kellan again? Kellan definitely likes

This is a review of Diamond in the Rough by M.E. Montgomery in the Fractured Fairy tales anthology.

I just love this updated Aladdin story. While we all know the fairy tale, this re-imagined version is amazing. If you loved the fairy tale, you will love all of the Easter eggs included in the story, ie: Main characters names are Oli & Mena. This story is amazing, with just enough heat. Highly recommend!

This is a review of Midnight by Lexi Foss and Cora Kenborn

I just love this updated Cinderella story. While we all know the story, the journey is where all the fun is. Cyn does not realize just how amazing she is since she has been bullied by her stepmother and step sister forever. The sexy Kellen has to really do his work to turn this whole thing around. It was a wonderful ,sexy story ,and I can't wait to see where it goes from here

Midnight: A Violet Queen Prequel

This is a fantastic start to what is sounding like a great trilogy. A modern day Cinderella story with some great twists and turns. The writing is well done, the characters are well developed and have great chemistry together. Not only do we get Kellen and Cyn's story we also get a great intro to the characters in the next book. I can't wait to see what this amazing author duo has for us next.

FANTASTIC READ!!!
WOW! Lexi and Cora are amazing together. This is a great beginning to what is sure to be an incredible trilogy. The characters are remarkable and have great chemistry. I love a good fairytale, especially if it's a tad dark and this one doesn't disappoint. I can't wait to see what these two incredible authors have in store for us next.

I had the opportunity to read Cora and Lexi's Midnight. Kellen and Cyn are amazing! I really liked the Cinderella tale spun on this. I was hooked from the beginning till the end. Kellen is the white knight but Cyn can stand up for herself. Their chemistry will set you on fire. I can't wait to read the Violet Queen. ...more

Read five stories rated here. I’ll update when I’ve had the chance to read more.

Cee Marie: Temptation Tower
3 stars: I really think as a fully developed story, this could be so much more. It was a quick read but given how short it was, I think too much emphasis was placed on the sex scenes. I wish we had gotten more of the actual story of Rapunzel.

Fractured Fairy Tales was an amazing collection, by an amazing group of authors! Some of those authors I've already met, while others were new to me, and those new to me are now firmly on my list of read more in the near future. I refuse to go into any detail, but seriously, I LOVE the retelling of fairy tales, but these brilliant folks added a very original spin on them, and I'm blown away. I had planned to read one at a time, and yet, once I started, I ended up spending a whole day devouring t ...more

This is a great collection of stories ranging from 8k to 67k. So, there are short stories and a few full-length novels. Each story is unique and inspired by fairy tales. A collection worth reading.

**My own story in the book is an MM full-length PNR novel based on Six Swan Princes.
Max hates his life and the curse he is forced to live with on a daily basis. He pushes his other form deep inside him, only allowing it free when he can no longer keep it at bay. Love and a life without the swan livin

I love a good twist on fairytales that I am familiar with. This collection of re-tellings was fun. Each author took a fairy tale, adding their own twists and made it a short story. I find it also nice that they are donating to Make-A-Wish.

This collection is not your normal fairy tale retelling. They are twists, some are more current, and most had an erotic feel to them. I would read a few then put the book down and come back to it later. I usually only read one book at a time but with this one

What a fun anthology! Taking popular fairy tales and giving them a twist and a modern setting must have been a challenge and we have some great examples here. There is variety of length and settings, but all have captured the essence of the original story. A shout out to a couple of stories that stood out for me: Midnight: A Violet Queen prequel, is an entire story, starring Cyn and Kellen. This story by Lexi Foss and Cora Kenborn is so much fun and a a great appetiser for the upcoming trilogy. ...more
