Title: Adrianna’s Fairy Tales
Author: Adrianna White
Genre: Erotic fairy tales (I’m calling this a genre)
Rating: 2 / 5 stars
Reading Challenges: Telling tales; Mount TBR
How I Got It: Free ebook from iBook store
Adrianna’s collection of novellas take the classic story of fairy tales that we’re all accustomed to and throws it out the window in an erotic retelling of our beloved princes and princesses. The characters are hot and the action is steamy, these stories will titillate both the mind and the nether regions. Be warned, these stories rarely end as we would hope.
I downloaded the free iBook version complete with all three tales. I sped through these stories, but overall was really disappointed.
1. Naughty Cinderella: So Cinderella is a prostitute. I can deal with that. It makes sense. But the Prince is such a white knight on a horse that he’s boring. And the most graphic sex scene is one of her clients. Not very sexy at all.
2. Riding Red Hood: I was confused through most of this story. Was Red a werewolf? Was the Big Bad Wolf really a werewolf? What about Red’s fiance Fredrick? It felt like an abusive relationship to me. Not sexy at all.
3. Beauty and the Beast with Two Backs: Ugh! I’ve always issues with Beauty and the Beast storylines (see my review of Beastly and Beauty). This one really just intertwined Beauty and the Beast and Sleeping Beauty and it just didn’t work. And none of the sex scenes were sexy. They just made me uncomfortable.
