Be Careful What You Wish For - Book Review by Voodoo Bride

Be Careful What You Wish for
by Nick Howard

ebook, novella

What is it about:
Fairy Godmothers don't always know what's best. Or do they?

"If love is pain, I want to be hurt "

It must have been her distress over being dumped by Sir Justin that made Princess Lilly less than precise expressing her wish to her Fairy Godmother. Otherwise, she would not have ended up the indignant prisoner of Sir Gawain, a vile knight who wouldn't know how to properly treat a princess if the instructions whacked him upside his armored helm.

She should be angry, but she has no one to blame but herself, and no way out. The Kidnapping of Damsel Laws are very specific-once she is taken, she has no choice but to submit to his seduction. Every kiss, caress...and spanking.

Still, she's determined not to make it easy for him. If he thinks he will bend her to his, barbaric intentions, he has a serious flaw in his logic. Yet as he carefully executes his plan of exquisitely pain-laced pleasure, she finds her body responding quite against her will. And her mind racing with immoral thoughts that threaten her jealously guarded virtue.

Until there is a very small, tiny, remote possibility that Sir Gawain might win her hand...

Warning: Beware, here be a dragon lurking. Contains the repeated exposure and abuse of a princess's sensitive skin. Readers with gentle sensibilities may find themselves breaking out in a most un-princess-like sweat, but fear not-the heroine retains her virtue. Er, at least until she’s the one tying the last knot…

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
This story was a disappointment.

It tried a bit too much to be cleverly funny and that really didn't work for me. I also didn't like how the story practically glossed over the bondage and spanking scenes. It never got to the point where I (or anyone else I imagine) "broke out in a most un-princess-like sweat". It all was quite tame to the point of boring actually.

Too bad as the story idea is quite fun and lends itself to lots of interesting possibilities.

So this is definitely not a keeper for me and I most probably won't be reading anything else by Howard.

Why should you read it:
If you like cleverly funny written stories with very mild spanking/bondage maybe this is a story for you.
