Two things: I liked it but didn't like one specific thing in it. I liked that all the characters' reactions and quirks were believable. The hate on the ex-boyfriend parade? Check. The 'Move on. Oh, please move on? Check. But what had me holding back was her 'Woe, is me' schtick. More specifically, I was held back by how blinded she was to what she thought she wanted. That aside, Fairy Tale Fail reads a lot like those visuals in Batman and Robin fight scenes. Who here remembers those *WHOOSH* or *SMACK* visuals? FTF reminds me of those for some reason. The dialogue is fast paced; the writing in general was lightning quick. The story itself is simple. When Ellie is dumped by one she considers perfect, she has a chance to do things over. Along the way (with some a lot of glances back,) she rediscovers herself and her passions then kind of/sort of meets a new guy. And said guy? Well, get a load of this, "He always looked clean and he smelled great but his hair was a calculated mess." These characters felt possible to me. Her moving on (albeit reluctant and slow then stop start at some points) read real to me. Him being the subject of gossip, being called Rock Star'? I bought those things as well! 3/5
This book was awful. I could not even finish it. I love Julie Garwood, but this is not one of her best.
