Becca Ward knows that magic is real…
Two years ago not only had she and her best friend Alex found a real-life Sleeping Beauty in the middle of Los Angeles, they also discovered that they were powerful in their own right. They’ve managed to keep both their fae powers and their friend Lilia’s identity as a medieval princess a secret and live a normal life. Now their normalcy is threatened by the return of their former advisor at the Gem and Mineral Museum—and Becca’s least favorite person, Nicholas Hunt.
…and she’s about to find out that more than one fairy tale is true.
Nicholas has been obsessed with proving Lilia’s identity and the existence of magic. While working on an archeology dig he discovered an ancient fae artifact—a mirror that is imbued with a powerful protection spell that twists his obsession, and his body, until he is more beast than man. In order to protect her friends, Becca is forced to help him, and she is surprised to find that in spite of his outward appearance, Nicholas is no longer the beast she remembers. Will she let herself be the beauty that breaks the curse, or will she let her prejudice against him stop her from discovering true love?

Jessica Grey is an author, fairytale believer, baseball lover, and recovering Star Wars fangirl. A life-long Californian, she now lives in Montana with her husband and two children where she spends her time writing, perfecting the fine art of toddler-wrangling, and drinking way too much caffeine.

Wow, what a lovely read!
When it says fairy tale, it really does mean a fairy tale, and i love the twists in it!

I think there was a book before this that i didn't read, but it fills the basic blanks in so its not a major thing to just read this as a stand alone book.

Story starts with Becca receiving a phone call about her old tutor, Nicholas Hunt, who has suddenly disappeared.  She and her friends never got on with Nicholas who was smarmy, sneaky and selfish.

When Becca finds Nicholas, she decides to take it upon herself to help him.

I don't want to write too much about the story as it will give it away, but its a really well written story, with the fairytale weaving through it an becoming more obvious as to what fairytale it is as the story goes on.

A good, feel good and easy read and a happy ending - which is so rare these days, so nice to find!

Recommended if you wanted a nice, easy read that takes not much concentration and a feed good feeling at the end. (who doesn't like that!!)
