Disappointing finish. The story was not good enough to stretch over 3 books. The story continued but not on audio.

After watching her fairy tale go up in flames, Belle is finally starting over. With a baby on the way, a business to run, and a new love interest she just can't shake, things are finally looking up. That is, until she learns her independence might revive broken curses the world over. Could "happily ever after" really mean staying with her unfaithful husband? Or will Belle and her steadfast friends find another way? Meanwhile, Dawn still longs for the life she had three centuries earlier - before her sleeping curse ended in two kids, an unfamiliar era, and a husband she barely knows.

This was so enjoyable because the concept was new and very well done. EG: fairy tale characters grouped and living together in a make believe world. There was. I explicit sex but it was mentioned occasionally. I wouldn’t think the story would interest young people but who knows.

This trilogy is an insult to a readers intelligence and a blatant attempt by author and publisher to stretch this non story, over 3 books.
Meghan March is an experienced writer and knows how to write. However this story has been padded out with utter nonsense. The story might have made one shortish decent book.

This writer can create great stories but....
Why oh why do so many authors create their lead female heroine as an imbecile.
In this instance, Piper swings from proficient fighter, diplomat, educated young woman to a brat without a brain. The interesting story loses its credibility. The reader (me) wants to throw the book away and discontinue the series. Pleas, Authors, keep your heroes consistent.

It's just over a week until Sam will be Binding with Jared, and the only thing she wants is to spend that time relaxing and preparing for the ceremony. Unfortunately, she seems to be asking too much of fate, because suddenly she's lumbered with a number of distractions that have the potential to postpone, or even cancel, the Binding. There's a guarded fiance to crack, a complicated assignment to deal with, Jared's ex to alienate, and a bunch of snobbish Master Vampires to win over - or offend, whichever. On the upside, things couldn't possibly be any worse, could they?

The narrator of the main female character couldn’t decide what accent to use and kept changing from cockney English to perfect diction. At times her accent was so broad she sounded like a twit.

I’ve read thousands of books, mostly audio. This trilogy is better than many of this genre. However the leading lady is a goose and lets the story down badly.
Hopefully she will redeem herself in book 3.

The first time I met Chase Parker, I didn't exactly make a good impression. I was hiding in the bathroom hallway of a restaurant, leaving a message for my best friend to save me from my awful date. He overheard and told me I was a bitch, then proceeded to offer me some dating advice. So I told him to mind his own damn business and went back to my miserable date. I couldn't help but sneak hidden glances at the condescending jerk on the other side of the room. Of course, he caught me on more than one occasion, and winked.

Wanting the perfect man doesn't make me crazy. I just know what I like. A powerful billionaire in a suit wasn't even my first choice. McAllister Stonewall was never on my radar; I didn't even know he existed. I do now. His hands are all over me at work. The heat of his chest pressing against my bare back as he bends me over the desk is the only thing on my mind. He is my most forbidden desires unleashed. He is my new secret obsession. He is my Mr. Perfect. Until the moment I realize there's no such thing as perfect.

I’ve read and loved many of this authors work. Huss has written some great books but this title doesn’t come close to her usual high standard.
It’s only book 1 but I am not interested,in following this series any further.
Very light weight, shallow, and uneventful. 👎
