My rating: 4 of 5 stars
YO! I haven’t picked up a romance novel since I was 10 years old, and I’m so glad I chose this one to reanimate my romantic adventures! “Her Mad Hatter” wasn’t perfect, not the most polished novel I’ve ever read. Some parts made me laugh because they came off a teeny bit cheesy, BUT. But but BUT!!
I couldn’t put it down. I couldn’t wait to see what happened next. And towards the end, I was dying because I literally couldn’t turn the pages fast enough. It got emotional, ya’ll. And I got desperate for a happy ending. (No spoilers, though. You’ll have to read it yourselves!)
What I really loved about the book is the series’ premise. I LOVE how Marie Hall sets us up in this world where fairy tales are retold in ways we’ve never seen, where characters have hidden secrets, dark sexy desires, and soul-wrenching journeys that pull us in and don’t let go.
And of course, hot naughty sex with the tortured, broken, muscle-bound man-gods.
Like I said, I’m not much of a romance reader, but I think I’ve become officially converted. Am definitely making space in my action-adventure-thriller-sci fi-fantasy-dominated bookworm life for Marie Hall’s Kingdom series. Well, for Marie Hall’s EVERYTHING. She. Is. EVERYTHING.
So thanks so much, Ms. Hall, for helping to reopen my mind to the world of romance and erotica. I hope you come back to the world of writing soon. “Her Mad Hatter” was a lovely, tantalizing ride. And by the excerpt I read from the next book in the series? This is a ride I won’t be getting off of anytime soon.
Write on, rock on, and READ on,
