I voluntarily received an ARC of Prancing Round With Sleeping Beauty in exchange for an honest review. This is the second installment of the Storybook Valley series, and I found it even sweeter than the first. I usually am not a huge fan of “clean” romances, but this series is so charming. The characters are so incredibly endearing; I couldn’t help but fall in love with them. Rory and Kyle sparked from the first moment they met, and I found myself smiling through most of the story. This is one of those feel-good romances that made my heart melt. Prancing Around With Sleeping Beauty (Storybook Valley) is a fantastic light-hearted read, that is clean and dare I say wholesome. Even though this isn’t my usual read, I still loved it all the same, and I am giving it 5 Boundless Stars.
Loved this book! This is a sweet romance that just made me smile. In it, Rory is a dance instructor struggling with employment issues when she trips over Kyle, the grandson of the family her family has been feuding with for many years. However, instead of the dull witted animal jailer she expected, he's intelligent, kind, and well educated. When the sparks fly, they try to quietly get to know each other without upsetting their families....or be true to themselves. What follows is a charming romance that fans of the genre will love. While this is a sweet romance you can let your teens read without concern, this grandma loved every page of it. Put this one on your must reads list.
Reviewed by Samantha March for Readers' Favorite Prancing Around With Sleeping Beauty: A Storybook Valley Sweet Romantic Comedy by Stacy Juba had me by the title. I’m a Disney princess fanatic (and I have the Halloween costumes to prove it, and not just as a little girl) so I was looking forward to hearing the story of Rory Callahan – named after Aurora AKA Sleeping Beauty. I didn’t realize it going into the novel that this is actually the second book in A Storybook Valley series, but it just took me a couple of chapters to head to Amazon to verify this was indeed in a series. It didn’t hinder much for me, though there was definitely a lot of back story shared throughout, which possibly could be distracting if you have read the first book. Sometimes this particular story seemed hard to keep moving forward, when so much of the past was continually being brought into the present. Regardless of that, I did enjoy the story. There is a sweet romance between dance instructor Rory and Kyle – who happens to be the grandson of her family’s arch-rivals. Rory has the difficult decision of pursing a relationship or causing strain to her family, and adding in the fact that she has a boyfriend upon meeting Kyle adds another wrinkle to her romance. Nothing ever gets particularly deep in the story, except a quick scene at the end between Rory and her grandfather that added tension to the plot.Overall, this is a short and sweet romance that I found fulfilling to read and would recommend if you are looking for a light romance with a Disney twist.
