Review: No Prince Charming (Grimm's Circle #2) by Shiloh Walker

Synopsis (via Goodreads):
Her Happy-Ever-After has been a long time coming…
 
Elle spent years trying to get over her so-called Prince Charming, and she’s finally getting the hang of it. A Grimm—a guardian angel with unique gifts—she spends her nights trolling for demons and kicking ass, and lately, her days have been spent with her on-and-off-again lover, Ren, a fellow Grimm. But fate has other plans in store for Elle, plans that include Michael, the prince from her youth who broke her heart.

“What do you choose…live for her? Or would you rather die?” That was the choice Michael was given all those years ago. Although he knew she’d never forgive him, when Michael was given the chance to become a Grimm, he took it. Still, he isn’t so sure Elle needs him in her life. With a lover at her side and a mission before her, Elle looks like she’s doing just fine without him.

But the not-so-charming prince isn’t going to back off that easily…not if there’s a chance she might need him again. He’d do anything to save her. Kill for her, live for her, die for her…
My Thoughts: I thought this was a hot little read. I have a bit of a soft spot for Ren so it was hard watching him have to step aside to give Elle her happiness, but at the same time there was something immensely hot about it.  Thrown into a job at a sex club overrun by demons, which naturally puts Elle in the middle of her two men, and you can probably see how I found this hot.

I really liked Elle's story.  In fact, I like how all the fairy tales I grew up with are twisted just enough that they're new again.  Michael isn't the charming prince, he made plenty of mistakes.  Elle wasn't the abused stepdaughter forced to work her fingers to the bone, in fact she was fiercely independent and loved.  I loved it.  I loved how they weren't perfect and they take responsibility for their mistakes.

All in all, a fun, hot series that I've really enjoyed.
