    I have no idea what I just read but it wasn't good. The tagline is 'Modern fairytales for modern women' but I don't see anything but the barest trace of fairytale in these stories and it doesn't feel modern in the slightest. It's disjointed and confusing the entire way through and riddled with spelling and grammar mistakes. I really had high hopes for this but sadly it disappointed.

    I LOVE the idea of adult fairy tales. But by the term 'adult' I expected something steamy or possibly violent. When I hear fairy tale, I expect romance. Not even physical romance so much as emotional romance. I'm not sure what about these stories is really like a fairy tale, though; they seem like mildly romantic short stories that you can assume all have 'happily ever afters' because of the use of the term fairy tale to describe the book. I think 'fables for young adults' might have been be a b I LOVE the idea of adult fairy tales. But by the term 'adult' I expected something steamy or possibly violent.

I think 'fables for young adults' might have been be a better subtitle. The first story didn't follow any sort of timeline which made it extremely confusing. Which is unfortunate, because I feel like this story had a lot of potential (more than any of the others in the book). The way it was done, though; leaves a lot of holes in the story that were possibly filled, but I may have missed them with the skipping around with no segue. There were a couple of stories that I did like and that made sense for the most part. Interestingly enough, they both contained people who were significantly older than the other characters in the story and I'm not even sure if one of them would even qualify as a 'romance' so much as a fable. While the narrator did a good job, I don't think this book is appropriate for listening without a bit of editing to put some notes in the stories to give you an idea of the timeline of the story...I hope the physical book has some sort of differentiation between flashbacks and now. Also, with the audio format, its more difficult to go back just a paragraph so you can more easily correct the 'Wait, what just happened?' get a sense of what happened that is causing the confusion and hopefully clear it up. Overall, there is potential here, but I don't think I would purchase this despite the enticing subtitle. There just isn't enough feeling behind the writing. Many of the characters lack depth and emotion. I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.

    Audiobook Narration - Christa Lewis - Pretty Good. She covers some accents and dialects, has a good narrative voice, a good sexy or sultry voice and male characters. The book is a compilation of eight romantic short stories by the same author. I liked it, BUT, I guess short stories must leave me wanting. I wanted more details for each of the stories. I wanted to know more, I wanted longer tales. So I guess that's a good thing. The stories were engaging enough that I wanted more, not less, but with Audiobook Narration - Christa Lewis - Pretty Good.

The stories were engaging enough that I wanted more, not less, but with that said, I did find myself confused on multiple occasions because of the nature of the short story. I felt that at times important details had to be sacrificed in exchange for brevity. Almost like taking an hour long serial and only having a half an hour of air time. There are spiritual elements, or maybe spiritual interventions in some of the stories. There are some steamy bits in a couple of them. And there were a couple that revolved around a longing for children. I thought Christa did a great job of narration with each story containing a different mood and setting requiring a great deal of versatility on her part. Honestly, a couple of these stories have potential to be developed into full length novels that I would definitely read. I received a copy of this audiobook free of charge from Audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review.

    This collection of short stories had less of a magical fairytale feel than I was expecting, more general women's fiction. I enjoyed some of the shorter quirky ones the most, though none in particular stood out to me. I listened to the audiobook edition of this book, which I received free in exchange for an honest review. The narrator was fantastic, enhancing my enjoyment of the stories.

    I didn't like the story and honestly, change the title. I think looking for a partner or something besides In Search of Unicorns is sad. I thought it was going to be about unicorns. I actually think it deserves 2 stars but I'm just being nice but now the not so nice....IT SUCKED!! I didn't like the story and honestly, change the title.
