Hot on the heels of Fairy Tale Flirts is the sequel by Lisa Scott – Fairy Tale Flirts 2. 5 fun, contemporary romance short stories all based on aspects of different traditional fairy tales. This series uses Hansel and Gretal, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty, The Little Mermaid and Rumplestiltskin as the beginning point of these sweet bites sized romances all based at the Neverland Island midway. A second common theme is the mention of an obscure figure known as the Woodsman who has terrorized multiple characters at the midway who all came from the adorably named Goose Valley.
A midway is the perfect location for interesting and varied romances and comedic interludes… be it the sexy chocolate shop (adults only), the mermaid water show or the girl with the longest hair viewing. Everyone seems to be in need of a little romance and has personal mysteries to clear up. All of these short stories could be read alone but read best in order (and honestly soon after reading the first installment).
My favourite of the 5 stories has to be the Rapunzel story. A girl so in need of love and freedom finds her prince. What more can we ask for? The reasoning behind her being captive and her history was rather creative and I loved her knight in shining armour.
Once again there is a series of stories all connected by a common thread. There is romance, humour and a touch of fairy tale glamour to enjoy. I have reviewed and would suggest many of Lisa Scott’s books… you can find my reviews if you look for Lisa Scott book review in my search engine to the right. I truly enjoyed Fairy Tale Flirts 2. Again bite sized romance you can take in parts or a whole. Perfect!
The sequel to Beach Flirts! has officially been read… Wedding Flirts! Another series of gems! Though one of the women’s reasons for avoiding/missing out on love was a little frustrating (she had a disease in remission and so ran since her life COULD be shorter… not cool). As usual Lisa Scott has shared with us a series of lovely contemporary romances all tied together… this time a series of weddings. We have a couple familiar faces and connections from the previous book and of finally see insight into the minds and loves of the wedding photographer and the ever a bridesmaid blogger.
There are some truly outrageous plans being made for weddings, people with their hearts all over the map and loves that you just can’t help but cheer on. Each romance in this anthology CAN stand alone, but you don’t get the full story if you miss out on Beach Flirts! Check out my review on Fairy Tale Flirts! to find the links of all the others I have read by her.
Lisa Scott writes the perfect little gems for a rainy afternoon or a quick perk up after a long day!
Who doesn’t love a good contemporary spin on classic fairy tales? Especially when they are all tied together with common threads and elements?? Be it an exclusive brand of shoes (Jiminy, like the cricket maybe?) or a massively gorgeous apartment building (Grimm Apartments)… each of these tales has a taste of fairy tales, romance, humour and of course characters you love to love, complete with evil stepsisters and stepmothers and all!
Once again Lisa Scott has hit the spot for me with her bite sized contemporary romances. I am hard pressed to say which in this anthology is my favourite. Is it the rather bright and cynical Rose with her red hood or the adorable Cyndi with her borrowed “glass” slippers? Maybe Belle the carpenter or Shawna (Snow) White with the 7 children to nanny? Or Goldie with her unfettered lifestyle (was her coffee just right after 3 tries??)?
As with all of the Flirt series, Fairy Tale Flirts! is a wonderful series of 5 individual stories about 5 different couples. Of course they are all linked together but still you can read them one at a time or all at once and still enjoy. You can read my other reviews on her works HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE and HERE. After all it all started with a pair of magical slippers… this time!
