My Review

Starlet is the final book in the Sinister fairytales collection. Did they save the best for last? I think they saved one of the best for sure. Now, I’m not familiar with Anastasia nor have I read this author before but nonetheless I was blown away by this book. 

I am going to have to keep this review short and vague as to not give away anything at all. This book is not for the faint of heart. It is sinister and dark and suspenseful. You will be on the edge of your seat as you become captivated by this story, these complex broken characters with tragic pasts and the phenomenal way this author weaves together their story in a way that it unfolds throughout the book to keep you intrigued and engaged. This book is hot and steamy and it will definitely melt your kindles. But it also has some frustration going on and you will want to scream at times too. 

All and all I really enjoyed this last book in the Sinister Fairytales collection. But I happen to really love dark romance and will definitely check out this author again. If you have triggers and aren’t a big fan of dark romance then this is probably not the book for you.
