Kiss the Slipper: An MM Cinderella Retelling (Beautiful Nightmares Book 5) by Anna Fury & Amy Pennza

"Omg, Jasper!!!!!" The Cinderella retelling, Kiss the Slipper, had some shocks in store and is the finale for the Beautiful Nightmares series.

From the blurb:

As a pixie, I’m a rule-breaker and master of mayhem. I’ve played matchmaker to all four of the Syndicate Lords, but somehow, I never seem to find my own match.

That changes when I meet a handsome stranger and fall hard. Vale Gentry may be tall, dark and devastatingly charming, but I should have known better than to get tangled up with an elf. Everyone knows they’re the snobs of the magical world. I’m nothing more than dirt under their gilded shoes.

That’s never more clear than when I discover Vale is betrothed—to his stepsister. Heartbroken, I return home with a new rule: never fall in love.

But fate isn’t finished with me. Just when I’ve sworn off elves forever, Vale shows up in the Hallows—and he’s every bit as distracting as he was the first time around. When I get the opportunity to punish him, I seize it, locking him in a magical contract that makes him my servant for two weeks.

I’ll revel in making the heir to the Summer Court scrub my floors and sweep the attic. I’ll order him to his knees. The only problem? He looks really good down there—and his golden eyes promise deliciously dirty deeds I remember all too well.

Vale refuses to let me go. But the elves aren’t willing to release him, either. The clock is ticking on his marriage contract, and his stepmother is determined to see him wed. When his reluctance puts both our lives in danger, I have to decide if my pride is more important than my prince—and if a chance at true love is worth risking everything. I just have to hope I’m not too late.

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

Omg!!! Kiss the Slipper is the best addition to this series!!! I have been impatiently waiting to get Jasper’s story, especially since he's been busy matching the rest of the syndicate. And Vale was the absolute perfect choice for our little pixie!! 

The depths of this story were intense, yet needed for their connections to work. Jasper and Vale, or should I say Vale, reminded me of a young boy who just lost his virginity and didn't know what to do with his hands afterward. Their connection was instantaneous, and initially a little unbelievable, which is why their fight for one another was a necessity. 

I loved and appreciated the cameos from the past Lords, and being introduced to Aunt Mab (who kicks ass). That shocking twist of events right at the end, exposes Melusine for who she was, which is the best way to end a fairytale! (even though I would have liked to see what the brother had planned) But, Aunt Mab’s announcement of Jaspers's future takes the cake!! 

I'm a little sad to say my goodbyes, as I'm not ready to go back to reality yet. Every book touched me in a different way, especially when it comes to fairytales. Hoping to see more from the author, I am grateful for the introduction!!
