A sweet, hot, amusing read!
E.J. Russell combines fantasy, fairytales, faerie and hot hot men in this lovely book about an accident prone ray of colorful sunshine in David and a broody beast of a fae suffering under a curse. David is adorable, optomistic and can see the true beauty of the 'man' who hides in the shadows and shuns the world, locking himself away in his practice.
Alun was once one of the highest ranked fae in the seelie court, men and women falling at his feet, the Queen herself seeking him for a consort, but he was struck by a curse that turned him into a 'beast' rather than a beauty and cast out of Faerie. Two hundred years in the outer world and he's built a practice treating the supernatural community of afflictions and running support groups for humans who had suffered negative exposure to the supernatural world. His world was grey and painful... until temporary office manager David burst into his life.
And the rest of the story is a fairytale romp full of mischief, secrets, attraction and good triumphing over bad. David breaks the curse, gets the Fae and gets his happily ever after. But like all good fairytales, there's a twist, a sword fight, a rescue of the fair prince, and a suitably diabolical villain to overcome before they get said happy ending.
I totally enjoyed this fun, sweet book. Off to read book 2 now! The Druid Next Door.
