the story is so much love in it i like it a lot because of the people in it and that you see some of the other people from the other books it is so wrth it
I have enjoyed a couple of the books in this series, but I think – in general - that R Cooper’s writing style just isn’t for me. Or at least in audio format… I’m not sure if that would have made a difference – but listening to this just made me confused for a lot of the time.
On the one hand I really enjoyed the set up – post doc – fairies are part of society but “not” – David is the clueless human who attracts fairies but doesn’t realize it… But there were all these love triangles that confused me and made me frustrated.
I was also sick to death of David’s morose view of himself by the end. When two characters simply need a long discussion to settle things between them – The Big Misunderstanding – it makes me crazy- I kept thinking that if Tulip and David had just TALKED…
I loved the fairy magic and holidays and even the format for the story. Using the holidays as a way to move us forward through time was clever. What I didn’t like was the way our 2 MCs kept dancing around one another.
The narrator, Michael Fell, didn’t add much to this experience. He read nicely but didn’t add any extra flavor or zing – at times he was almost monotonous.
I don’t want to make it sound like this was horrible – it wasn’t. It just wasn’t that interesting – to me- and didn’t strike my fancy.
I highly suggest looking at other reviews – many others have enjoyed this. You don’t need to read the series in order, but I wonder if I’d read the book just before this “Frangipani and the Very Shiny Boy (Beings in Love, #5.5) “ if I’d have felt more strongly for this story. Frangipani and his Boy are in the story so…
In any case – I give this a 3 of 5 stars. Solid effort.
