This book really frustrated me in the beginning, while I was laughing. I really didn’t like Cole, Faith’s ex. He irked me to no end. I wanted to slap him most of the time. You really got to see Faith grow in this book. She didn’t have much back bone and let her mother and best friend talk down to her and just be negative influences in her life.
This all started to change with the introduction of Sylvia, her ‘fairy god mother’. Sylvia was probably one of the best side characters that I have read in a long time. Just freaking adored her scheming and manipulating in the background. She was hilarious and really made this story. I also fell in love with Joey, Faith’s daughter. She was a hilarious and I loved her interaction with Mr. Gabe.
As Faith began her relationship, as an employee and friend, with Gabe you could really see her transform into a stronger woman and she began to stand up for herself because of the confidence he helped instill in her. Also, I’m sure that hanging with Sylvia instead of her negative friends also really helped her as well.
Gabe.. oh Gabe. This man, and the way he treated Joey really filled my heart up with pure joy. He loved her and treated her as if she was his own daughter and that is what every single mom longs for in a relationship.
If you have never read a story written by Beth, this would be a good one to start with, to begin the binge read. Because, her books are like Pringles, once you pop you won’t want to stop reading her book. She just has a way of making these characters come alive that you will be engrossed in the stories and never want them to end.
These are my happily ever after novel thoughts.
I had always been a good girl ruled by my catholic guilt, until one little slip-up in college led me down a different path. Now, I’m just trying to be the best mom I can to my little girl, making ends meet – cleaning houses by day, hosting sex toy parties at night, and holding out hope that Prince Charming truly does exist.
Then I met him – handsome, successful, and hardworking. The perfect Prince Charming. Right? Wrong. So wrong.
He’s a perfectionist.
I’m a single mom.
He doesn’t have patience for kids.
And…Did I mention, he’s my new boss? A boss who has me thinking more impure thoughts than a teenage boy with their first dirty magazine, a boss who is totally out of my league, and a boss who I’m impossibly attracted to.
Sometimes a girl must give up the illusion that fairy tales exist and realize happily ever afters only happen in movies. I’m not a princess, and he’s not a prince.
But when an unconventional fairy godmother intervenes to work her magic, maybe just maybe, I’ll get to wear that crown after all.
