Synopsis (from Goodreads):
Jean-Michel La Grenouille has a lot going for him. He’s a prince. Handsome. Filthy rich. And definitely charming. But he also spent his first few years as a fly-catching, pond-dwelling frog. All that saved him was the kiss of The One, the girl who saw nobility through his slimy form and fell into True Love. Okay, fine. Technically she was a toddler who tried to eat him, but whatever. The curse broke, and as long as he finds and marries her by his 30th birthday, he’s a free man.
Trouble is, he’s going to be 30 in ten days, and he’s getting some seriously cold-blooded feet. He’s pretty sure Princess Sleeping Beauty is The One. But his best man has some villain issues, his in-laws-to-be belong in a really special castle, and a smoking-hot lady biker named Lollie Bliss has him rethinking all this happily-ever-after stuff. Oh, and he may have accidentally put out a hit on his blushing bride. Oopsie
In this installment, the main character is Jean-Michel (the Frog Prince). Jean-Michel was cursed into frogdom, and then saved by his “one true love”. Only, in this story – he has to not only be kissed by her – but WED to her. So the story follows Jean-Michel as he re-finds and plans to wed his Princess, before his birthday. (Thus, keeping him from returning to his former green self.)
What kind of story would this be if it were that EASY though, right? haha.
I loved the plot of this one, good ole RJ returns just long enough to turn this fairy tale on its head. There is action, mystery, and a shit ton of laughs.
Character wise, of course I loved them ALL. Beauty cracked me up, yes… Sleeping Beauty (yep- that one). Jean-Michel was such an arrogant ass. I loved to hate him, and hated to love him. haha.
I love this series. It is very entertaining and original. I know, original in a fairytale retelling? RIGHHHTTT… But, its true. This series is very fresh and I’ve not read anything like it. I can’t wait for the next book to come out (if there is one). If you enjoy laughing and rolling your eyes and then laughing some more, I say pick this up!
Humor can be a little raunchy, probably would recommend for those 13+.
