She believes in fairytales and awaits her prince.
But I arrive at her doorstep and I’m far from royalty.
The shiver down my back tells me he’s there. As if he were touching me.
Cold, angry, aloof—he’s everything I don’t need. But I can’t turn off my attraction when he’s near.
My sleeping beauty doesn’t realize just how dangerous I am.
She trusts so easily, smiles so beautifully. And while she sleeps, I watch.
With each passing night, I become more addicted.
Until I’m a man obsessed.
I feel his gaze on me, watching while I sleep.
He pushes me away in the light, but in the dark, he comes to me like a moth to a flame.
I crave it. He doesn’t know just how broken I am.
I believed she was the light to my darkness.
But it turns out my sleeping beauty likes to dive into the shadows alongside me.
She’s mine, but that decision could kill us both.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is not your normal fairy tale by far. This is a dark and twisted fairy tale of sleeping beauty mixed with some mafia. I went into this one blind and I actually do not do any kind of modern retelling of fairy tales, but being that this is written by one of my favorite authors, I had to give it a try. I won’t lie this took me by surprise. The first glimpse of Logan had me wondering what I got myself into because of his fetish, but getting to know his story and how broken of a man he thinks he is broke my heart. Vera is a mafia princess running from that kind of life only to run smack dab into the very arms that had her running in the first place. This is a fast pace, dark, twisted, heart racing, steamy read. A story that not only took me by surprise, but one that became addicting to read. Give this book a try even if you don’t like modern day fairy tales because you just might be surprised as I was.
Happy Reading Everyone!!!
