Once Upon A Time Cover

Book Info

Title: Once Upon A Time

Author: S.K. Hartley

Genre: Romantic Comedy | Contemporary Romance

Cover Design: S.K. Hartley

Cover Jacket

I don't believe in fairy tales. I don't believe in glass slippers. I don't believe in Prince-Freaking-Charming.

Cinderella can kiss my ass.

I kiss frogs, sometimes even toads. I've given up on meeting Mr. Right, instead it seems all I meet is Mr. Wrong, Mr. Very-Wrong and even, Mr. Lets-Not-Even-Go-There.

Fairy tales are for morons.

Well, that's what I thought until Gabriel Black barged through my life, turning everything upside down. He's hot, sexy and little rough around the edges. But, he's hiding something, something deep. I can feel it, taste it and smell it.

Now I'm left wondering if he's my Prince Charming or my fairy tale villain. Will I ride away safely into the night, dreaming of happily ever afters? Or, will I stumble and fall in ridiculously high heels only meant for women with a death wish?

Once Upon A Time... I met Gabriel Black.

I freaking loved this book! It's such a different twist on a fairy tale that we all love and defiantly has a lot more heat! I never knew Cinderella could be so sexy

Payton isn't your average heroine that falls for the sexy billionaire after just one glance. She's sassy, snarky and will do whatever it takes to keep things as professional as possible with him. 

Gabriel isn't your average billionaire alpha with massive control issues. Oh he's alpha alright, but he's got a side to him that you immediately fall in love with. He's determined, sexy and knows exactly what he wants, and what he wants is Payton. 

The supporting characters round out the book perfectly. Quinn and Kylie are sheer comedic genius and I want them as my best friends. Luca, oh Luca....the sexy British brother...how can you not swoon over him?!?! 

I only have one unanswered question...when is Kylie going to get a book????? 

This story will make you laugh and will restore your faith in the fairy tale. The Happily Ever After that we all look for. It can turn a cynic in to a believer and a believer into a sap. 

5 stars from me and a must read for all you cynics out there that need a reason to believe. Stop being such a Payton and learn to let it go(see what I did there?)

Go grab a frog and pucker up, he just may be the Prince you have always never been looking for :)
