Rate this book
If only your dreams could come true with a Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo…

Drew Parker’s father abandoned him on his eighth birthday, and he hasn’t thought about him in years. When Drew discovers his father and stepmother have died in a tragic accident, he finds he's now the legal guardian of his two young half-sisters, Madison and Mackenzie. He's on his way to college and not prepared for such a responsibility. His mother refuses to help him, but thankfully he has a Fairy Godmother, a magical, who has spent years helping others to make up for the one she failed.

Singer Seraphina Jacobs thinks she’s finally made it when her second album goes platinum. Then, just before her tour is set to start, photo-shopped nudes of her appear in the tabloids and threaten to destroy her career. With her reputation at stake, her PR team rushes into action.

In a chance meeting, Seraphina makes a poor first impression on Drew. He doesn't recognize her until he wins concert tickets that include meeting her backstage. When Seraphina's manager notices their instant attraction, she capitalizes on it for some PR events. What happens when a staged romance turns into something more?

No matter what Drew and Seraphina feel for each other, their lives are being pulled in opposite directions. Will a little nudge from a Fairy Godmother help them realize what’s really important?

This lovely fairytale retelling will entertain you with its reverse Cinderella story. The book is a quick read and light-hearted, yet touches on topics of growing up too soon, losing parents, mental abuse, and manipulation.

Please be aware there are instances of underage drinking and some detailed sex scenes. I'm far from a prude, but the sex aspect took away from the tale a bit. I found myself skimming that part to get back to the story.

The main characters are likable and easy to cheer for. My heart ached for Drew as life would not give him a break. From a deadbeat Dad to a disconnected witch of a Mom, life keeps heaping more difficulties on his young shoulders. As a boy who basically raised himself, he feels overwhelmed and incapable when he takes on custody of his two half-sisters, 8-year-old twins. He soon finds love conquers many of life's problems, especially with the help of Faye, his fairy Godmother.

Sera was believable as a much manipulated pop princess. All she wants to do is sing but believes there should be more to life than the cut-throat music business. The tale has an underlying mystery of who is trying to sabotage her career.

The three fairy godmothers are enchanting in their desire to help people in need, and the many years they wait for that chance is endearing.

I haven't read the first books in The Magicals series, but I loved the concept of The Fairy Godmothers, Inc. I hope to read more of the series in the future.

This is the fourth in The Magicals series by author Maya Tyler and it’s such a great read! It’s a fun and exciting read and I just love the characters! Fairy Fairy Godmothers Incorporated” is a group of magical’s they keep tabs on their charges until their services are needed.. Our characters in this story, Drew and Seraphina need a little help from the fairy godmothers as their situation arises and I couldn’t put their story down.

A Fairy Godmother's Redemption is a very sweet and sad story all rolled into one. It grabbed me from the first page and never let go. A Fairy Godmother's Redemption was a roller coaster of a ride, taking my emotions on a whirlwind of a ride.

One minute I was happy the next I was sad then the next thing I knew it just ripped my heart right out of my chest as I followed Drew through his life’s journey. A Fairy Godmother's Redemption had me in tears on more than one occasion as Drew’s story made me so sad and left me in tears.

Drew had a very difficult life growing up without a father and his mother was never around much. His life was just about to begin as graduation was approaching and college was just around the corner. Until the day his life was turned upside down.

It all started when he was eight years old and his dad decided that he didn’t want to be his dad any longer and just walked out the door. Poor Drew never saw or heard from him again. Until the day he died in a car accident leaving him custody of his eight-year-old twin sister’s Madison and Mackenzie.

Drew was not ready to be a father nor was he prepared to take care of two eight-year-old little girls. What was he going to do with two eight-year-old little girls? How was he supposed to take care of them and go to college at the same time? His mother refused to help take care of the children his father had with another woman and kicked them all out.

Luckily for Drew, he has a Fairy Godmother, a magical one at that, whom he knows nothing about of course to help him out when the time is right. This Fairy Godmother has been watching over and taking care of people for a very long time.

Once upon a time, there were three middle-aged fairies, Faye, Rainy, and Ginger who created Fairy Godmother’s Incorporated or FGI several years ago. They created FGI so they could watch over and protect people. They keep an eye on people by looking into their crystal ball and help them out when the time is right. The fairies keep Fairy Godmother’s Incorporated a secret and have a Cafe as a front with all kinds of sweets that would just make your mouth water.

A pleasure to read from start to finish.

For a young adult plus audience as there are sexual scenes.

Faye is relatable, she's sensitive, has a need to help others and like the rest of us, feels she could/should have done better. I think she more than redeems herself with the help she's able to give to Drew.
Eighteen year old Drew hasn't had the easiest of lives and it's about to get a whole lot more complicated. He's a lovely character that I found quite endearing, I had my fingers crossed for a happy ending for him.

Enter Seraphina, eighteen year old pop princess with her own troubles. Beautiful, talented and a sweetheart, with her own Fairy Godmother lending a helping bibbity bobbity boo.

A Fairy Godmother's Redemption is fun, cheeky and has its sad moments. I'm thrilled to say it's part of a series though it could easily be read as a standalone.....but you wouldn't want to miss out!!

Full disclosure – I was provided a copy of this book by the author; however, I have voluntarily chosen to write a review. All opinions are my own.

A Fairy Godmother’s Redemption is scheduled for a July 27, 2021 release.

Fairy Godmothers are out there

Pop princess Seraphina Jacobs’ meteoric rise to fame is something out of a fairy tale. The role model of every young girl, she seems to have it all. But when compromising photos are leaked that can tarnish her family-friendly image and derail her career she needs a miracle to recover. When her PR team hires the best of the best to clear her image things start looking up, but is there more to the story than her manager is letting on?

Drew Parker has not had the easiest life. With his dad abandoning him and his mother when he was eight, he has struggled to get to where he is today. Now, at eighteen, with graduation approaching, his life is looking to be on the right track. That is until an unexpected visitor brings news that shatters his entire world. Drew’s estranged father has recently passed away and left behind Drew’s two half-sisters. Now, as their sole surviving blood relative and unwilling legal guardian, Drew has gone from kid to “parent” overnight. With Drew’s mom unwilling to have anything to do with the girls, Drew must figure out how Madison and McKenzie fit into his future if at all. When he wins VIP tickets to Seraphina Jacobs’ comeback concert for him and the girls, Drew and the singer are drawn immediately to each other. With more than just the girls playing matchmaker, Drew wonders if he is just a temporary “PR prop” to assuage the current crisis, or is there something more developing between the two?

A Fairy Godmother’s Redemption is the fourth in The Magicals series by author Maya Tyler. While loosely tied into the storyline of the first three books in the series as well as being set in Chicago, A Fairy godmother’s Redemption is more of a “prequel” story for the first three installments. Where the first three stories are focused on an individual story, this time we are introduced to “Fairy Godmothers Incorporated” a group of Magicals who moonlight as the owners of the local café. From their perches serving up apple pie, coffees, and the occasional bit of grandmotherly advice they also keep tabs on their charges until such a time that they need their services. I really loved this concept; it made the story easy to read and fun to follow. Faye, Rainy, and Ginger were perfect godmother types! I could easily picture them as kind older ladies with an understanding demeanor and a hint of mischief in their gaze. Faye’s interactions with the twins as well were also precious and humorous. It almost seems as if A Fairy Godmother’s Redemption was a way to provide more backstory for one of the more central characters and also provide a “filler” story for the larger arc of characters, but I do hope to see more of Faye, Rainy, and Ginger in the future. I can really see this concept spinning off into an entire series or sub-series of its own as the trio find more charges who can use a little nudge in the right direction.

Welcome to the Wonderful World of Fairy Godmother’s Inc, assembled by 3 old godmothers that scour the earth to see who needed help from a godmother.

The story had an easy narrative that catches the reader; however, it often jumps around so much that it’s not always clear what’s going on. In this instance, the story bounces between a sad boy without a father and a scared pregnant woman. Two different times. Two different scenarios. How would the godmothers help?

It certainly comes a long way from the Cinderella story we’re all familiar with. It was kind of nice to get a different perspective on it.

An interesting concept with a touch of magic.

The fourth book in the Magicals Series a well written story that held my interest until the end. I enjoyed reading Singer Seraphina Jacobs and Drew Parker’s story and everything they go through with a little help from their Fairy Godmother, to get their happy ending. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

I received this book for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own. Follow the book tour here.

This was such a cute and feel-good read. Even with all the tension and things going wrong, I smiled a lot while reading. The twin girls are adorable (and crafty for 8-year-olds). They really made some of the scenes pop.
In terms of the romance, it was cute, but it started kind of late in the story. As a result, the whole thing felt a bit rushed. There was plenty of spice for those wanting it. It might have been just me, though, but I found an 18-year-old guy who appears to have had sex only once being way too confident and adept in subsequent encounters. As fantasies go, it’s probably a good one, but I struggled with it. I did like the romance overall, and the fairy godmother angle added a nice touch.
I’m not sure I’d actually call this paranormal romance. Maybe romance with some fantasy. Regardless, if you want a fun read with a happily ever after, this delivers.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review.

A Fairy Godmother's Redemption by Maya Tyler is a fantasy romance. It's the fourth book from The Magicals series.

When Faye failed to protect Amelie and her little boy she and a couple of other fairies, Rainy and Ginger, created the FGI, Fairy Godmothers Incorporated, to help those who needed them. For the last few years, they were looking over Drew Parker and Seraphina Jacobs.

Rainy was responsible for Seraphina. So when someone leaked a photoshopped picture of the girl and almost ruined her reputation, she had to find a way to help her.
Faye was responsible for Drew. Ten years after his father left him, a lawyer informed him that he had two little half-sisters and that since their parents died he was their legal guardian. At eighteen, he felt that he couldn't handle the pressure of raising kids. That's where Faye came in. She and Rainy were going to show those kids that their life could change for the better.

It's such a cute fairytale retelling. Inspired by Cinderella but kind of reverse in this situation. The plot is nice and easy to follow. It's focused on the young adult love between Drew and Seraphina. Their romance was super sweet with minimum drama. The characters were amazing. The couple had good chemistry from the beginning. The fairies were fun and for some reason,
I imagined them exactly like the ones in the fairytale. But my favorites were the twins, especially Madison. My favorite part
was at the court the last time.

I enjoyed this story a lot and I will rate it with 4 stars.
