Pablo Michaels’ Jack and The Magical Beanstalk is a charming and sexy retelling of the classic Jack and the Beanstalk fairytale. This story catalogues Jack’s exploits with the magic beans, the beanstalk, the scary Giant, the Giant’s slave, various farmhands, and a naked man from the clouds named Sam. Jack, although teased as being a wimp when younger, steps up to many adventures as he matures, sexual and otherwise. He is not afraid to take on the Giant repeatedly in order to help his family and their farm, meeting and falling in love with Sam in the process. Although a tad simplistic, this truly is an enchanting little story and one that held my interest throughout. *I was given a copy of this book by the author and voluntarily chose to review.

Reviewed by Rosie Malezer for Readers' Favorite Jack and the Magical Beanstalk by Pablo Michaels is a twist on the story of Jack and the Beanstalk. Before Jack was born, his mother, Lorene, was at a fair. A group of youths bullied her until a large man, Bill, came to her rescue and scared them away. She repaid him with one of her prize-winning pies and a home-cooked meal. Lorene and Bill married soon after, and moved to a farm with prize-winning cow, Pearly White, and some crops. Two years later, Jack was born. After losing his father in a tragic accident when Jack was five, he witnessed his mother scream and curse at the heavens. Each year after that their crops failed and Jack would deliver milk to the markets, where he would be bullied constantly. He took to painting and used it as an escape. Before long, Pearly White stopped producing milk. Jack took her to the market to sell, but instead traded the cow for five genital-shaped beans (and a few sexual favors). When Lorene threw the beans out the window in a fit of anger, they grew into a giant vibrating beanstalk which disappeared into the clouds. After climbing the beanstalk to the very top, Jack soon realized that the castle above the clouds was about to challenge and fulfil his every sexual desire. Pablo Michaels certainly knows how to tell an erotic tale, and then some. Jack and the Magical Beanstalk threw me into a genre which I had never before encountered. The backstory of how Jack’s parents met and conceived Jack added depth to each of the characters and the reaction of Jack’s mother to Bill’s death was gut-wrenching. But the story quickly changed to one of spicy male-on-male erotica which I found to be quite humorous in places, such as the shape of the beans and how they were acquired. I found Pablo Michael’s story to be well written and entertaining. I recommend this book to mature readers who are interested in steamy gay erotica mixed with quite a bit of humor.

I am giving Jack and the Magical Beanstalk 3.5 STARS as I have mixed feelings about this story. First, as a fairy tale turned adult read, I think that the author did a really good job in making that transition and I found myself chuckling a time or two. The thing is that this is my first fairy tale turned adult read and my first read from this author, so I'm not sure if the one-dimensional emotional depth to the story is par for the course in this type of read or if this is simply the author's writing style. So, I'll start with what I liked about the story. There weren't many noticeable errors in the writing and editing which made this an easy and pleasurable read. I liked the few laughs and the steamy MM and MMM scenes in the story too. I was a little bit uncomfortable with one of Jack's artistic renderings of his father who'd passed away when Jack was five years old. When you read the story yourself you should be able to determine which sketch I am referring to. And as I've already mentioned, I do prefer a little more depth to a story and to the characters. Overall, this is an uncomplicated, fun read and I will be reading more from this author.
