Forget magic wands and grey-haired buns, these Naughty Godmothers come in stilettos and thongs. Inept at dealing with women? Uncomfortable in your own skin? Not to worry! Your very own Naughty Godmother is here to teach you all you need to know.
It is always amusing when fairies are portrayed as calculating and political rather than the light and airy playful creatures they are so often taken for. With these Fairies, like in politics, the higher up you are, the more authority you have, the more calculating you become. Fairy Queen Lucieene is no exception. Even though you never meet Fairy Queen Lucieene in this story, her presence is felt through out the entire book. Holly would have never even considered being a Naughty Godmother if it wasn't for her mother's (Queen Lucieene) influence. Although it might seem to be a strange career choice for a mother to want her daughter to take, being a Naughty Godmother is much more prestigious than being a Tooth Fairy.
Holly's just been given a promotion, albeit not one that she particularly wants. But she tackles her new job the way she handles everything else in her life, with a wry sense of humor, a determination to do her best, and a sincere desire to help people. So with her friend Mila's words of wisdom ringing in her ears, "Color coordinate, emphasize your assets, and never leave home without your stilettos and a thong", Holly attacks her first job as a Naughty Godmother with a charming gracelessness and a complete lack of guile. From start to finish Holly does pretty much everything wrong, beginning with picking out a man that needs no help in the women department and ending with breaking the most cardinal of all Naughty Godmother Rules: Never sleep with the client. It's a true delight watching Holly bumble and stumble her way through teaching Alex the art of pleasuring a woman, all the while watching Alex stumble along in his attempts not to show Holly exactly how much he already knows about the subject.
I really like how Holly and Mila's friendship is portrayed, I only wish you got to see more of it. However, the two women complement each other very well, Mila being brash and bold where Holly is a bit more like the "girl next door." It is so very easy to imagine all sorts of trouble that these two get into. I don't want to give anything away but I have to say that Mila's influence at a very pivotal moment is priceless, it is the perfect combination of her love for Holly and her wicked sense of humor.
Alex doesn't quite know what's going on when Holly quite literally falls into his arms after appearing from nowhere. Not one to believe in fairies and magic, he's sure this is some elaborate practical joke that his colleagues are playing on him, but after getting a glimpse of Holly in her thong, it's a practical joke he is more than willing to play along with. Being deep undercover and not having had sex for the last four months helps him cement Holly's opinion that he is inept at dealing with women. This all works out well until the truth comes out, as it always does, leaving Alex bewildered at the existence of fairies and Holly hurt that he lied to her.
