#20: Fairy Tale Flirts - Lisa Scott


Five modern takes on classic fairy tales, and the only magic is the real-life kind. Each sweet, funny, romantic short story is 10,000-13,000 words in length. The stories can be read separately, but are linked together in the collection, and wrap up in the perfect happily ever after. Stories include: Cindi, Red, Belle, Snow and Goldie.

Read my reviews for the other 3 Flirts books HERE.


My Opinion:
Cindi is a modern-day Cinderella story that had me picturing Sarah Jessica Parker in the starring role. It was a wonderful shoe-affair! (5/5) Red, is a modern-day Red Riding Hood that I enjoyed better than the film that came out last year. This story was "naughty but nice". It made me laugh too, just so you know. (4/5) Belle, is a modern-day Beauty and the Beast, and just as romantic as you might think. It made me smile from ear-to-ear. (4/5) Snow, is a modern-day Snow White that made me think Michelle Pheifer would be great as the wicked step-mother. (Sorry, I can't help but picture everything in film....) Any way, I enjoyed it! (4/5) and lastly, Goldie, is a modern-day Goldilocks and the Three Bears. I have to say, always one of my favorite fairytales, but even more so with a new-age twist. Also my favorite of them all. (5/5) So all-in-all I loved this set. It had all the elements of romance you need on a day like today, Valentines Day. I also loved how each story was a fairy tale, but also connected itself to something in the last. Very clever writing!


4/5


Recommend? YES!!!

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
