Good read

I was given a free copy of the book by the author in exchange for an honest review, through the MMRG Dont Buy My Love Program.

My first take on this short story is that it is humorous, pretty well-written, and sweet. It worked for me because it made me laugh to myself and smile about the happy ending. It checked all my boxes. There was a happy ending. I liked the characters. The writing didn't impede my enjoyment of the story with bad grammar or a writing style that I didn't like. It made me

I'm never usually a fan of short stories, as I need a lot of time to explore the world and bond with the characters. So I almost decided to skip this one, but I am so glad I didn't. This story was so light, humorous and fun, it had me smiling. I thought it was very well written. The protagonist is so likeable and also totally relatable, (I also had a habit of forgetting about food and leaving it in different places to rot, eww!) too scared to ask out his crush, who hasn't been there? He also ...more

I received a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review. It was a nice short story but nothing really interesting about it. A boy named Jonah, who is secretly and hopelessly in love with another boy named Peter, meets a pixie named Cador who is set out to do one good deed. Naturally the pixie helps the two boys get together through a series of mishaps and then they go out on a date. There wasn't really anything about this story that grabbed my attention. It was a little humorous but the ...more

This story short but a cute one. I read my first novel by this author few months ago and I've been itching to read more by them. This book really covers a suspension of disbelief moment between two boys near the end of their senior year of high school. Like the last book, I enjoyed my time.

This book was provided for free by the author in exchange for an honest review via the MMRGP Dont Buy My Love.
This is a short story about high school student Jonah who has a crush on Peter, a boy in his year. Jonah watches Peter and his friends when a pixie called Cador shows up with the intention of doing a good deed, like maybe helping Jonah land a date with Peter?

The tone is humorous and my favorite part was right at the end where Cador talks with another pixie, Locryn, but I feel like this story as a whole is too brief to really say much else about it. It barely scratches the surface of the scene

2.5 stars, just because there's not much to it. It's sweet and I enjoyed the humor, but it's really just one scene. I read it for free (and it's on K/U) so it was enjoyable, but I would have been upset if I'd paid for it. Nice setup but no real payoff...

(Review by author). This short story is a change of pace from my previous contemporary romances, as it is a young adult fairy tale. I hope you enjoy it! Cheers, R. Parr.

The Pixie Fix is available for free on NetGalley until 21 December 2019, if you want to check it out! Cheers, R. Parr
