Review: Wickedly Charming by Kristine Grayson

Wickedly Charming is a Romance Novel by Kristine Grayson from Sourcebooks Casablanca.

Book Blurb:

He’s given up on happily-ever-after...

Cinderella’s Prince Charming is divorced and at a dead end.  The new owner of a bookstore, Charming has given up on women, royalty, and anything that smacks of a future.  That is, until he meets up with Mellie...

But she may be the key to happily-right-now...

Mellie is sick and tired of stepmothers being misunderstood.  Vampires have redeemed their reputation, why shouldn’t stepmothers do the same? 

Then she runs into the handsomest, most charming man she’s ever met and discovers she’s going about her mission wrong...

It’s only natural that sparks fly and magic ensues when these two fairy-tale refugees put their heads - and vulnerable hearts - together...

My thoughts:

Prince Charming’s wife, Ella, has left him and taken their two daughters away.  Charming only gets to see them one week out of the year.  Frustrated with his life in the Third Kingdom, Charming has moved to the Greater World and opened a book store.

Aside from his daughters, Charming loves nothing like he loves books.

Mellie feels like she has gotten a bad wrap.  She left the Third Kingdom years ago to escape her bad reputation - but it seems to have followed her to the Greater World.  At least that is how she see’s it.

When Charming and Mellie meet neither are in a good place as far as relationships go.  Charming is coming off a bad break-up and Mellie, well she hasn’t been a real date in a long time.  But with each others help - they figure out how they can make the Greater World a better place for each other.

Wickedly Charming is the first book I have read by Kristine Grayson and it was an okay read.

I give Wickedly Charming 2 out of 5 stars.
