Rapunzel isn’t the stereotypical Damsel in Distress. Her Bad-Boy Prince Charming is a renowned mercenary, and their Happy Ending plays out like a bad movie. However, she is determined to breakout from her tower prison—love be damned—and do it in a fabulous pair of heels.
Gunned down by the Mercenary, the deadliest assassin in The Badass Archives, isn’t exactly Rapunzel’s end-game. Falling for him isn’t either, but his Rated-R demeanor is strangely charming. Even though most girls wouldn’t fall for their captors, Rapunzel isn’t like most dames. Her major girl-boner for the Mercenary is so pathetic it verges on cliché. Yet, in spite of his appeal, Rapunzel must escape before she’s locked away in the Château de Immortelle’s highest tower—forever.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, via Lovers of the Paranormal.
It was not bad but I had to force myself to carry on at times. The amount of times people traded allegiances and friends, gave me whiplash. It was a great story-line, but most of the time I felt confused like I was missing something or annoyed at all the switching sides going on. I honestly had no clue which way it was going to go in the end. There was a few grammatical errors that got me annoyed and:
“The way he filled out his pants surely teased everyone with an X-chromosome, ” this really got me annoyed, that means every one, males and females, I probably put way too much thought into that one comment, but since it was near the start it soured the book for me.
The setting was never really made clear, at first I thought it was a fairytale realm, then it seemed like our world yet in the future, I came to the conclusion that it was a mixture of the two, but when a reference to this world came up,it took me back a little.
I thought the name of the book was incredibly clever, when I first started reading it, I thought it was reference to her hair only, but I was proven wrong, it was one of the main reasons I enjoyed this book.
Not sure if I would read it again, but I would try other books from the author, all in all, a nice book although it felt a little rushed.
3 out of 5 stars
