I don't believe in fairy tales. I don't believe in glass slippers. I don't believe in Prince-Freaking-Charming.
Cinderella can kiss my ass.
I kiss frogs, sometimes even toads. I've given up on meeting Mr. Right, instead it seems all I meet is Mr. Wrong, Mr. Very-Wrong and even, Mr. Lets-Not-Even-Go-There.
Fairy tales are for morons.
Well, that's what I thought until Gabriel Black barged through my life, turning everything upside down. He's hot, sexy and little rough around the edges. But, he's hiding something, something deep. I can feel it, taste it and smell it.
Now I'm left wondering if he's my Prince Charming or my fairy tale villain. Will I ride away safely into the night, dreaming of happily ever afters? Or, will I stumble and fall in ridiculously high heels only meant for women with a death wish?
Once Upon A Time... I met Gabriel Black.
I don't even have the words to express how much I loved this book! From the minute that Payton crashes into Gabriel's world you just know that sparks are going to fly and they aren't going to calm down anytime soon. Simply put... together they are explosive.
The characters are so well formed it is unreal, you can literally see them develop and grow as you turn the pages! It has to be said that I took an immediate liking to Gabriel, in my books ANY man that growls at you is a man worth exploring, and WOW is Gabriel worth exploring... By the way #GabrielIsLilys so don't get too attached ;) The friendship between Payton, Kylie & Quinn is brilliant, I adore the banter between them and to me these three embody the term best friends like no other group I've come across.
I've never been big on fairy tales so the synopsis really caught my attention, I was instantly hooked on the idea of an anti-fairy tale. I loved the story, it's hilariously funny and heartbreaking all at the same time and above all it is amazingly written. Once Upon a Time sucked me in and dragged me to another world, so completely that I lost hours submerged in its pages. 'Stop looking for happily ever after and start looking at once upon a time.' is a quote that we could all live by! Thank you SK Hartley for sharing this AMAZING story with the world!
