What do you do when all no not some but ALL of the guys you have dated have been frogs. Oh and not to mention everyone has taken over your love life or lack there of by setting you up because you couldn't possibly do it yourself. What I don't get it why he family so so hostile about her love life. That's it though. This was a great read and tons of fun. Love the characters and especially the feisty side of Cassidy that never gave up no matter what was going on. Love the niece and brother in law, pops even gets a pass but sister and moms dump them quick. This is my first read by this author and I loved it I will most definitely be reading more. I love her characters and her style. Tons of laughs and even some intrigue all mixed together and turned out awesome.
My Rating: 4.5 Favorite Quotes: To say I was in a dry spell would be an understatement of epic proportions. It was a lot like calling the Sahara “a little bit sandy.” Life in a convent was once again looking pretty good. Besides, at this point, I was an expert at the celibacy part. Black boxers with the Jolly Roger all over them. Oh, my God! Is this like the pirate version of Underoos? My own grandmother smacked my boyfriend’s ass and had a healthy squeeze, too. Are you really going to deny me this? I should be allowed to drown my sorrows in raspberry turnovers. The snort that emanated from her was less than ladylike, even worse than my cow-farting noise. She obviously didn't buy my claims of virginity and purity. I felt like I should be offended by her reaction, but it was best to just be amused. One never knew what else would come out of her mouth if challenged. I didn’t know how it was possible for an intelligent chick to be so stupid, but I did it. When I got nervous, I got dumb and way too outspoken. Neither of these were terribly good survival skills. My Review: I absolutely adored 75% of this creative and entertaining storyline that was packed with clever humor, meddlesome family members, a cursed sexy pirate, a murderously enraged fairy, and a once jilted frog-kissing jeweler with abysmal luck with men. The first half of the book kicked off an inventive and unique tale loaded with amusing and snarky inner musings, humorous descriptions and introductions of the quirky and eccentric characters, clever plot lines, and a sweet and steamy love story. But the tale took a rather sobering and angsty turn into the complicated rules of fairy lore and magic with a period of tension and turmoil that I was eager to put behind me before it picked back up into a more pleasurable and interesting cat and mouse stage that lead into the final showdown with the scorned magical creature. I greatly enjoyed Ms. Deister’s clever and inventive plotting as well as her engaging humor and enticing characters. I look forward to reading many more of her innovative stories.
Kissing Frogs is a great read. It had me laughing out loud, and glued to the edge of my seat. This book had intrigue, humor, romance, suspense, and some nail biting. The characters were well developed, the story was well written, and the words flowed. Kim Deister is a great author, and I highly recommend this book.
