Blurb: David is in love with Tulip, a kind and unusually quiet fairy in his social circle. But everyone knows Tulip doesn’t date humans. David tells himself he is happy to be Tulip’s friend, because he doesn’t believe a fairy could love him and Tulip has never tried to “keep him”—as fairies refer to relationships with humans.
Fairies are drawn to David, describing his great “shine,” but David knows only too well how quickly fairies can forget humans, and thinks he’s destined to be alone. He can’t see his own brilliance or understand how desperately Tulip wants him, even if Tulip believes David can do better.
But exhausted and more than a little tipsy at a Christmas party, David makes his feelings too obvious for Tulip to deny any longer. Because of a past heartbreak involving a human, Tulip is convinced someone as shiny as David could never want a “silly, stupid fairy” in his life. Now, if he wants to keep David, he’ll have to be as brave as his shiny, careful human.
Review: Each one of these stories can be read as a standalone. Although it is much more fun reading them altogether. I am afraid that I have read them out of order so I am a test to the fact that you don’t have to read them in order.
After reading the other stories I have to admit that I am not really that impressed with them. The writing is a bit off as are the characters just a bit. Although I did like Arthur and Bertie in the other book. The title does not compliment the story what so ever. To be honest I was beginning to think that this author was trying to turn the characters into m/f romance what with the one characters names being female. But I will go into that later.
Fairies, werewolves and dragons live among the humans. However fairies are known to be distracted and forgetful. They also run around half naked most of the time. They see humans as treasures. The problem with fairies is that they don’t normally stay with one person. Tulip however is not like that. He only wants one man and that man is David.
Now David is into self-pity stage. He sees that everyone who he has been with loses interest in him soon after. The fairies see him as being shiny and tempting. However Tulip is not like that. Although Tulip doesn’t date humans either so it makes it perfect. He doesn’t date humans and David doesn’t date fairies. What a perfect pair we have here.
Now what kind of name for a man is Tulip. This author has a thing about giving her characters really weird names that do not do anything for the character whatsoever. It brings the story down in my mind, because the whole time I am thinking female and stupid. Even though they are all male the names make them very off. I am afraid that I don’t think I want to read any more by this author. Or at least not this series. They are completely off, and the writing is a bit difficult in some parts. I was not pleased at all I am afraid.
I have to admit that I ended up skimming through most of this story. It had potential but failed. I am afraid that this book was not for me at all.
