When it comes to crafting happily-ever-afters, the Agency is the best in the land of Kingdom. The Fairy Godfather Grimm can solve any problem—from eliminating imps to finding prince charming—as long as you can pay the price…

Working for Grimm isn’t Marissa Locks’s dream job. But when your parents trade you to a Fairy Godfather for a miracle, you don’t have many career options. To pay off her parents’ debt and earn her freedom, Marissa must do whatever Grimm asks, no matter what fairy-tale fiasco she’s called on to deal with.

Setting up a second-rate princess with a first-class prince is just another day at the office. But when the matchmaking goes wrong, Marissa and Grimm find themselves in a bigger magical muddle than ever before. Not only has the prince gone missing, but the Fae are gearing up to attack Kingdom, and a new Fairy Godmother is sniffing around Grimm’s turf, threatening Marissa with the one thing she can’t resist: her heart’s wishes.

Now Marissa will have to take on Fairies, Fae, dragons, and princesses to save the realm—or give up any hope of ever getting her happy ending…

Free Agent is book one in the Grimm Agency series. Marissa Locks is a pretty level headed girl for someone that works as an agent for the Fairy Godfather (Grimm). Marissa was traded to Grimm by her parents so their other daughter would be saved from some sickness. So she's basically working as hard as she can until she pays off the debt which will take years. Marissa's job is an interesting one, she gets to make a prince fall in love with her, then break his heart. That way a princess can swoop in and they fall in love. I guess true love isn't as easy as fairytales let on. She also makes trips to the wolves to trade pigs for the children the wolves captured. Marissa is snaring a prince for one of their clients and everything seems to be going fine. Until she finds out the guy she targeted was not a price after all. She actually had feelings for this guy, so it pained her to find out she broke his heart when he could have been hers. Something is amiss when she goes after the right prince and a group of people pull her aside and cast a curse on the "prince" Marissa likes. Marissa has to figure out who is causing trouble and see if she can get her princess and prince together, all while trying to save the day. Free Agent is unique and I really enjoyed Marissa's character. She really did get the short end of the stick when her family promised her to Grimm though. I wasn't sure if she'd be able to win back her fake prince since they did have a good time together. All in all, I enjoyed this book, and I'd suggest it if you're a fan of fairy tale type stories.
