    Hope to see more from this author

    Great read. Easy to follow with good characters. It is a good stan alone novel but could easily be evolved into an enjoyable series.

    I loved this book. The fae have a job to collect the teeth, hence tooth fairy. Gemma doesn't know she is half fae. She is a boxer whose boyfriend is running for office. But Gemma is pulled into the fae world. Gemma finds out that not all is good in the tooth fairy world. I liked the premise for the book. I can't wait for the next one.

    Interesting faerie book.

    Tooth and Nail was a cute and different look into the world of tooth faeries. It is the first book I have read from this author and for the most part it was a decent read.

    Gemma is a tough as nails amateur boxer who finds out that she is half fae, not just any kind of fae, but a tooth faerie! Because she is half fae she is thought of as a warrior in the world of fae. She is suppose to protect the Olde Way of the fae by any means necessary. The fae are not suppose to commit acts of violence so they use the half human, half fae to do their nasty work for them. Gemma might be a tough girl but she is no killer.

    Gemma is also the girlfriend to a man running for Congress and she will not do anything to jeopardize his chances at winning. She does hope that when the time comes he can accept her for who she is, which is half fae, but she is afraid to tell him. Gemma is a good solid character and really likable.

    Avery is Gemma's boyfriend who is running for Congress and he has a lot of his plate because he is trying to step out of the shadows of his fathers scandal and be his own person. It's hard for the son of a politician who has been scandalized and he is always worried about something bad happening. I don't think that he was fleshed out enough for me to decide if I liked him or not.

    I liked Svein a lot more than Avery, and he wasn't even really fleshed out much either, which goes to say that Avery felt just like a stuck in the mud politician, while Svein had much more sex appeal. He just sounded yummy.

    Riley Clayton the evil villain in this novel was pretty interesting in the fact that he is a dentist. He is destroying innocence with toothpaste!! Taking away the essence the tooth faeries need in the tooth that they take from children. I thought that was pretty interesting and unusual.

    Over all I thought it was an interesting take on the tooth faeries and though the midnight fae are just mentioned I am pretty sure there will be a sequel where we are introduced to the darker fae, which might make the next novel a bit more interesting. I would recommend this book to those who like stories of faeries.
