Barrett has lived almost his entire life cast as the monstrous villain, so imagine his surprise when the strangest Fairy God Mother out there calls on him to protect one of her charges. Not being able to control his other half used to be his biggest problem, but with Lynni in the picture, everything has turned upside down.

Lynni has always known that her destiny was grim because she was different than the rest of her people, but she’d decided long ago to try and make a difference in the world—then she meets Dori and is shocked to find out that nothing is as it appears.

Can these two outsiders navigate the draw they have to each other while trying to out run the roles the rest of the world has given them? Dori will do all she can to make sure they get a second chance, and there’s very little that can keep a goth fairy from getting what she wants.

I had a really hard time putting this book down with the great connection, tension, and chemistry between these two as well as the action and passion that this book offered. I would recommend this book.

I didn’t realise this was a fantasy when I started reading it but I was really happy that it was because it was really good!

It has some really lovable characters and an adorable blushing Ogre 😀

Thank you NetGalley!

It. Is . So. Cute!

I loved this two outsiders falling in love.
They were perfect for each other and meant to be together.
It was so much fun to read and made me smile a lot.

If you love second chance and two people healing and falling in love with one another, look no further!

Barrett by Sarah Marsh
Happily Evil After book 2

Light, fluffy, over the top was what I thought this book was heading toward but then about page forty things changed as Lynni appeared, Dori’s plans for Lynni and Barrett began to materialize, and the magic mystery problems both were facing were shown to possibly have a solution. Then, I was hooked and couldn’t stop reading till I finished the story.

This is the second book in the series, and I do wonder if I had read book one, Viktor, I would have been more clued in that Dori was going to be matchmaking misfits and doing some sleuthing and fixing along the way. The book stands on its own perfectly well, but I am now curious about what I might have missed.

I loved Barrett with Lynni and how the two grew closer through the story. They were perfect with and for one another. It was interesting to learn their backstories, find out about their parents, and learn why they were on the fringes of their communities. Dori was there just enough in the story to matchmake and show a bit of what will be happening in her own storyline in the future. Dori’s desire to hep misfits find happiness is going to provide plenty of fodder for future stories in this series.

This is a new-to-me author that I look forward to reading again. Thank you to NetGalley and Evernight Publishing for the ARC – this is my honest review.
