What They Say:
Gunned down by the hottest killer in the history of the Badass Archives wasn’t exactly Rapunzel’s end-game. But when her reputable extraction skills fail, she uses unorthodox methods to gain her freedom from the Mercenary, whose icy blue eyes have serious panty-dropping capabilities. Even though most girls wouldn’t fall for their would-be assassin, Rapunzel isn’t like most dames. Her major girl-boner for the Mercenary is so pathetically intense it verges on cliché.
Regardless, Rapunzel’s hands are tied. Love chooses its victims, not the other way around. She isn’t the stereotypical Damsel in Distress. Her Bad-Boy Prince Charming is a renowned mercenary, and her “Happy Ending” plays out like a bad movie. However, she is determined to find her freedom—love be damned—and she’ll do it in a fabulous pair of heels.
What I Say:
I would like to thank Jennyinneverland tours for sending me a copy of this in exchange for a fair and honest review.
We first met Rapunzel or Zel as she is known facing an adversary in a backstreet, little do we know but this adversary is known as the Mercenary.
This is a totally different take on the Rapunzel fairytale, with a twisted darker side, once you start reading it hooks you in and you want to read more.
On the whole I loved Zel, wasn't never sure about the Mercenary, was totally unprepared for the twists and turns.
I read a review where they said they weren't sure about this as it didn't tell you when this was set, who cares some books don't need to tell you that and this was one of them.
If you want something different this is the one for you.

About The Author:
I specialize in dark, paranormal romance – think “happy ever after” but with a twisted, dark chocolate center. Real-life romance isn't only filled with hugs, kisses, bunnies, and rainbows. True-love can be more thoroughly described in times of darkness and tribulation. It’s in those harsh moments where you see what a person is truly capable of – both the good and bad. Sometimes prince-charming isn't always on time, and the glass slipper is a little snug. However, it doesn't mean Charming is not Mr. Right, and who says every shoe is the perfect fit?
