Guys and Godmothers, Book 3

Avalynn Fay is not a typical Fairy Godmother. She wears leather body suits, rides motorcycles, and prefers bourbon to anything fru-fru. Probably why she is assigned new charge, Jason Gregorian—a PI who drinks bourbon and loves to cook barbecue.

Jason’s a good guy. Generally decent. Even willing to pretend to be his ex-girlfriend Tessa’s date for a wedding, so she won’t be alone while her ex struts around with his latest squeeze on his arm.

Should be easy, right?

All Ava has to do is talk to him, feel him out a bit, and she’ll know exactly how to get the wheels in gear. Except when she meets Jason, suddenly no one is good enough for him. Not even Tessa, his intended Happily Ever After.

It’s enough to make a fairy godmother want a healthy shot of bourbon—right before she breaks all the rules.

Warning: Contains a fairy godmother who’s ready to spread her wings—and maybe a few other appendages—for a mortal hot enough to make her drive her motorcycle right off the road.

My Review:
The cover of this book caught my eye and although I haven't read the other two in the series, the synopsis sounded fun enough that I had to snatch it up. 

And the book was just as fun as it sounded. Ava has been a fairy for over three hundred years and she prides herself on the fact that she's always been able to do this fairy godmother gig without conforming to how everyone else does the job. But Jason is her first male subject which makes her a bit nervous especially as she gets to know him and realizes that he's HER perfect guy. That alone is messing with her ability to do this job, but then when Cupid gets involved and tries to help, things go bad really quickly. 

The story and the set up was a lot of fun. In this world of fairy godmothers, three fairies work together to complete their tasks. Ava is the final of their group and is holding up the other two fairies lives with her difficulties, but Ava has a hard time owning up to when she needs help. She's extremely independent and while that makes her a great heroine (I love that she rides a motorcycle and wears full body leather catsuits). She's definitely not your typical girly, soft fairy.

I liked Jason too. He says that he's not necessarily looking for love but he truly gives Tessa a chance when Ava makes her case. Not many guys would be okay with that especially in those circumstances. I also really liked how accepting he was when he was presented with such amazingly unbelievable circumstances and events. He rolled with things. 

I haven't read the other two books and that did seem to hurt my enjoyment of the book at the end. Because this was the final in the trilogy, all the stories were finished off and I was missing how everyone worked together since I hadn't read the other two books. It was a little confusing, but not so much that I couldn't follow the story line in this book. But it's a fun series, so I need to go back and read the first two. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
