Rating: 2.5 stars out of 5
Things are amiss in the fairy court, made worse one spring morning when King Oberon’s wife decides to leave him. His decision to gather his thoughts in the human realm lead him into the path, and arms, of workaholic human Nick Chandler. But when Oberon’s throne is threatened, will he be able to retain his kingship and his newfound love?
I liked how this book first started and the interactions between Oberon and Nick. Oberon wants to get away after his wife leaves him while Nick is still trying to bury his grief and guilt in work.
Oberon and Nick just seemed to click and both opened up well with each other. However, the story quickly went off track with the whole Oberon kidnapping and rescue. I just didn’t get the point of it and it wasn’t cohesive with the first part of the story. I just felt confused and when the story ended I didn’t feel like anything was resolved because it just jumped ahead and seriously how is King Oberon living in the human world and not in the fairy realm.
The cover art by Natasha Snow is nice and I like the visual of Oberon, even if I don’t think it exactly fits him.
