Poor MCs have a big obstacle prevent their HEA! : the miserable heroine who thinks she is cursed because at the past, anytime she tried to make sex with her tempting hero , nature found its creative ways for an intervention! ( leeches, flying roofs, wild animal invasion, sinking boats etc.)Did you like my presentation? If your answer is already “yes”, please continue to read it! Petunia, Jonquil, Bluebonnet: three godmothers remind you of epic witches of Hocus Pocus: Bette Midler, SJP (like her shoe brand), Kathy Najimy. But they’re not lovely witches, they are just magical fairy godmothers who are about to lose their powers. Their magical wands stop working properly because their town suffers from lack of love. If they won’t bring the happiness back, they may lose their entire powers. The best way to attract love into their place is meddling their two fairy children who have unfinished business. Yes, we’re talking about Un- Lucky Fujiki ( okay, our heroine’s name Lucky but unlike her name she unintentionally attracts bad luck: everyone around her under the threat of any kind of catastrophe, danger or natural disaster. Only thing she has to do is hugging the person and transferring her bad luck vibes to him or her) and charming chocolate king Ransom Payne ( he literally owns a firm produces amazing chocolate! )! When they were young and naive, they ended their relationship because something unmentionable happened during their hmmm let’s say “intercourse” or “attempt of intercourse” and when the word gets out, Ransom turns into a laughing stock of their small town. So they both told each other unacceptable and harsh things which broke them apart and both of them were too stubborn to say sorry. Now godmothers kindly request them to act like fake fiancées which will help their matchmaking business bloom and bring the town to the happiness which will slowly evaporates. Both Lucky and Ransom cannot dare to say no to their godmothers. Ransom still owes a part of his business success to them (yes, unlike Lucky, he knows their magical powers) and Lucky wants to face her fears by meeting with her ex-love she never achieved to forget. Of course it’s obvious their love and undeniable chemistry will rekindle but could they defeat the bad luck of Lucky which is following them like a dark, black cloud? I enjoyed the story, vivid, entertaining characters. I wish fairy godmothers interfered by their meddling skills to their love story but I still loved them. And of course Gwen- the loyal best friend of Lucky and her kids stole my heart. I’m looking forward to read her sequel. Overall: I’m rounding up 3.5 to 4 magical, happily ever after, a box full of chocolate, romcom, enjoyable stars! It’s soft, sweet, swoon reading that I highly needed! Special thanks to NetGalley and Kensington Books/ Zebra for sharing this lovely arc with me in exchange my honest review.

    The author created an amusing, and highly interesting world, then filled it with sassy and addictive characters. "Serious is good, but levity is better." The only thing I didn't enjoy in this story was that whole "The boy who missed" thing. That seemed like a ridiculous and weird addition to the story and far too much focus was wasted on it. I'm excited the author is turning the godmothers and Ever After into a series! I look forward to the next book. Thanks to NetGalley & Kensington Books for my DRC.

    This was a cute romantic comedy set in a fairy tale town called Ever After (surprisingly located in Missouri, who knew?).

The main characters were engaging and I was totally rooting for Lucky. I liked that the story was about more than romance. Both Lucky and Ransom have some work to do on themselves on their adventure to try to find their own happily ever after. I cheered extra hard for lucky as I really felt her pain at feeling “cursed” bad luck seems to follow Lucky around and attack those around her. This has kept Lucky from many things including a relationship with her college sweetheart Ransom. This book was full of magic, fairy tale favorites, and humor.

I'm a sucker for anything fairy tale-related and have an inexplicable attraction to the fake relationship trope, so when this popped up on my dash, I hit request. I'm sleep-deprived and cold because fall weather decided to show up like Maleficent at the birth announcement after we were hit with a heatwave, so I wanted to curl up with something light and fun and easy on the brain. And since it's not quite Hallmark movie season yet, I settled for Fairy Godmothers, Inc. thinking it'd be a good substitute. It was a mistake. Fairy Godmothers, Inc. is definitely not the kind of feel-good, cotton candy fluff that make made-for-TV Christmas movies such a ubiquitous guilty pleasure (and it's certainly not filled with the family-friendly you find on the Hallmark channel.) As much as Hallmark movies are mocked for their lack of depth and original content, Fairy Godmothers, Inc. is even worse. DeWylde goes on and on about how "there's more to a relationship than sex," but the first half of the book, where sex is essentially the plot, says otherwise. I finished this in a couple of hours, and while this is a quick read in general, the fact that I skipped chunks of paragraphs in the beginning definitely helped cut down on my reading time. This reads like a really bad rom-com. (And yes, I know most rom-coms aren't necessarily characterized by amazing writing, but there are good-bad ones and bad-bad ones, and this is definitely the latter.) The attempts at humor feel disingenuous which is kinda weird thing to say, but the whole thing reads like DeWylde is trying too hard to be funny. The characters are flat, and there's no real romance because the book pretty much starts out with Lucky and Ransom wanting to jump each other's bones. There's an attempt to tell an actual story about halfway through the book, but the obstacles are completely ridiculous. And just when you think it can't get any more over-the-top, it does. (It starts with the fact that they can't truly be together, like in the Biblical sense, without horrible things happening and, I kid you not, it actually goes downhill from there.) I'd have an easier time suspending disbelief if you told me you were a fairy godmother who could fly than I would believing any of the reasons Lucky and Ransom gave for why they can't be together 🙄. The best part of the book was Ever After, Missouri, but there's nothing particularly special or original about the setting. The attempt to throw in some Japanese folklore (to mix things up a little, I guess?) doesn't seem to mesh well with the quaint, fairy tale-inspired, small town vibes that were built for most of the book. This is apparently the first in a series and though there are attempts to drum up interest for subsequent books by introducing characters who will ostensibly end up in the sequels, I have no interest in reading more about the budding romance between Lucky's soon-to-be divorced BFF and Ransom's right-hand man, the complicated relationship between Rosebud Briar and the reformed Evil Queen, Ravenna Blackheart, whatever's going on with Prince Phillip Charming the frog, or the inevitable romance the godmothers have planned for Zuri Davis, the heartbroken new hire at Fairy Godmothers, Inc. The fact that the top reviews are in the 4-5 star range are proof there may be hope for HEA yet, but... A special thanks to Kensington Books for providing an ARC in exchange for what ended up being a very honest review.

In it, you'll meet Lucky, the most un-lucky woman ever. For some reason, everywhere she goes chaos follows. It is very much the case with her love interest, Ransom.

So of course, a fake wedding between Ransom and Lucky is the perfect solution, right? Overall, this was a fun and light read that I'm glad I read.

    I really wanted to love this one - or at least like it more than I did - but after debating how to start this review, I realized it just didn't work for me. I loved the concept of the godmothers - three sister witches who love to meddle, I loved the idea of Ever After being a hidden gem of a small town, brimming with magic , where fairy tales are living breathing things. What's not to like about that, right? Sadly the MCs sunk this one and I quickly found myself losing enthusiasm over reading to I really wanted to love this one - or at least like it more than I did - but after debating how to start this review, I realized it just didn't work for me. I loved the concept of the godmothers - three sister witches who love to meddle, I loved the idea of Ever After being a hidden gem of a small town, brimming with magic , where fairy tales are living breathing things. What's not to like about that, right? Sadly the MCs sunk this one and I quickly found myself losing enthusiasm over reading to the end. The story is the cliched chick lit trope that reminded me a lot of the cheesy plots in hallmark or lifetime movies. Lucky - who is notorious for being Unlucky - agrees to help her godmothers by posing as a fake bride to be, who is planning the wedding of the century to billionaire chocolatier and American sweetheart, Ransom Payne. I admit I was interested in finding out what the "incident" everyone was always referring too, actually was and then it's revealed and I'm wondering why Lucky is the one so bent out of shape when 1) She has no one to blame but herself, since she's the one that blabbed to everyone about it and 2) apparently her bad "luck" has always been around and they tried several times to do the deed only for her bad luck to ruin the moment - so why did she freak out the last time, especially since she was the one that kept pushing for that step? I didn't understand why she was so vindictive and resentful of Ransom when she was aware of the consequences all along. In the heat of the moment, I get it but it's been years and she's still holding a one sided grudge (for no decent reason!) She'd started the awful nickname by screaming he was a loser Harry Potter who didn't know what to do with his wand. He was The Boy Who Missed. For better or worse, it had stuck. Ransom was winning me over when he confessed to still having feelings for Lucky (even though she humiliated him beyond reason) and was willing to give up the physical part of their relationship to be with the person he still loved. ... he wondered if they could have a life together without sex. It wasn't the most important part of being with someone. He'd fucking miss it, that was no lie. But he still loved her, still wanted her as a person as much as he had all those years ago. Then the MCs do a role reversal where Lucky is suddenly learning from her mistakes and willing to risk her heart again for a second chance with Ransom, only for Ransom to wig out on her when she really needs him. It was so out of character for him that it just felt wrong all the way around. So yeah, I started off liking Ransom and annoyed with Lucky and ended up confused by Ransom and still frustrated with Lucky. Sad because I really liked Lucky's BFF, Gwen. Her love interest, Roderick -with the missing fairy godmother- sounds like it might be more up my alley. * * * ARC provided for an honest review * * * I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book.

The godmothers set about planning their fake wedding in Ever After, Missouri in an effort to save magic and their town. I adored everything about this book. Every character is interesting, compelling, and empathetic. The dialogue is fantastic, and occasionally laugh-out-loud funny. Ransom and Lucky's character arcs were so satisfying. The concept takes tales and characters all of us are familiar with and subverts them in truly charming ways (no pun intended). This was my first Saranna DeWylde book, and now I can't wait to read more of her stuff. I'm so excited for this book to be out in the world. Thank you so much Kensington Books for providing me with an e-ARC.

They have decided to make Ever After, Missouri, where they and other fairytale characters live, into a destination wedding attraction. Their godchildren, Lucky Fujiki and Ransom Payne are the ones that are in their sights for the first of these events. Lucky and Ransom have been in love with each other since they were children, but things have not worked out for them. Some of these events will have you laughing out loud as you read about them. There was one event that I thought was overused and I wish the author had not even included it, which actually knocked my rating down a bit. As they plan a fake wedding for these two, things happen that have Lucky realizing that she is the one that needs to fix things if all of them, including her and Ransom, are to find their happily ever after. I enjoyed this story with its entertaining characters. All the magic characters were ones that I had read about in my youth, but not quite like this. Both Gwen and Roderick, the sidekicks, were great and integral parts of the story. I loved Gwen's kids and how they brought our different sides to everyone. This was a fun, HEA story that had me smiling. A great read for my month of romance. I am already looking forward to my next visit to Ever After, Missouri. I was gifted a copy of this book upon request. The rating and opinions shared are my own.

Lucky’s name feels like a terrible joke. Her luck isn’t your average level Reviewed for Wit and Sin Saranna DeWylde puts her own fresh and fun spin on fairytales in Fairy Godmothers, Inc. I desperately wanted to love this fairytale-loving rom com, but the story ended up being a bit of a mixed bag for me. I almost didn’t finish the book because the first half wasn’t my cup of tea at all but I’m glad I stuck with it because the story finished strong and I enjoyed the world DeWylde created. Lucky’s name feels like a terrible joke. Her luck isn’t your average level of bad – it’s preternaturally awful. But when her beloved godmothers ask for her help, Lucky ventures to Ever After, Missouri, to fake a wedding and put Ever After on the map as a wedding destination. The only problem is the groom is her ex. She and Ransom have a history of things going catastrophically wrong when they try to get together and “The Incident” was the final straw that broke their relationship. Though sparks fly upon their meeting again, other things begin to fly as well...like attacking mutant cherries. The hard part for me is that both Lucky and Ransom are decent people so watching terrible things happen to them isn’t enjoyable or funny. The first part of Fairy Godmothers, Inc. seems to be a series of disasters as Lucky and Ransom reconnect, fall back in love like there was no time apart, and everything felt shallow. If we were given any history besides their failed attempts at sex or the overblown “Incident” perhaps the insta-love when they re-meet would make more sense. This is the point where I almost stopped reading as everything felt unfunny, shallow, and over-the-top. I’m glad I didn’t stop reading because in the second half of Fairy Godmothers, Inc. the book finds its feet. Lucky and Ransom’s relationship is tested as they have to make themselves vulnerable, face their fears, and take risks. It isn’t easy and the course of true love doesn’t run smooth, but I liked that they had to work for their happily ever after rather than have their fairy godmothers wave their problems away. There’s heart in this part of the book and the characters grow in an organic manner, learning about love, sacrifice, and acceptance; modern fairytale themes for an adult audience. The town of Ever After is a fairytale world come to life. The titular fairy godmothers, Petunia, Bluebonnet, and Jonquil, are determined to bring love back to Ever After, as love powers the town’s magic and that magic is fading. Love in all its forms is at the heart of Fairy Godmothers, Inc. and that made me smile. DeWylde’s twists on fairytale characters also charmed the heck out of me. I loved exploring Ever After and seeing beloved characters in new forms and I definitely want to explore this adorable town and its endearing residents even further. So while I had mixed feelings about Lucky and Ransom’s story, I cannot wait to see what Petunia, Bluebonnet, and Jonquil have in store for their other charges!

    I have received this ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. Fairy Godmothers, Inc. was so much fun to dive into. I laughed so much and even had some tears showing up here and there. It was also pretty easy to fall in love with all the characters. Especially when you meet Lucky and Ransom. Oh Lucky.. she definitely thinks she is cursed and very very unlucky. I honestly felt bad for her throughout the entire book because she wanted true love and Ransom all wrapped up in one.

It just took forever and I wanted to bang my head on the wall. At least I got to laugh along their adventure because they were hilarious. Then there's the fairy godmothers who were freaking adorable. I would textural them all day every day. Other than that, I'm intrigued to see what happened with Gwen and her potential love interest. I also really hope that jackass of an ex got a good dose of karma. Please say yes.

Godchildren Lucky and Ransom were former college sweethearts that the fairy godmothers wanted to set up in a fake wedding to boost the town of Ever After. I liked Lucky and Ransom even though they had awful names. I overlooked that because I was interested in their love story. Lucky and Ransom had a sweet love story and I loved it. My main issue besides the main characters names was the godmothers. It was really their story of rebuilding or rebranding their town but they were annoying to me. I know that I’m probably the only one that will think that. I wanted Lucky and Ransom to find their happiness without meddling godmothers but then again this was a book full of meddling people in it. Again I had to overlook that to read how the story would unfold for me. I was at times confused of the many characters and their roles in the town of Ever After. I felt that the writer would start a story line of a character but never finished it. I’m assuming it’s for the next book? I loved the best friends and how loyal they were to the main couple. I especially loved Gwen’s children. I think the next book would be about the best friends finally finding happiness which I’m looking forward to. Overall, I liked this book, I just needed more of Lucky and Ransom for this to be a perfect book, I received this ARC from the publisher and Netgalley for my honest review. All opinions are my own.

All the magic and visits from some of our favorite storybook characters are hidden in the pages and it just made me feel like a kid again. I really enjoyed this light read and needed something to put a smile on my face! Thank you to Netgalley, Kensington Publishing, Zebra Books and Saranna DeWylde for an early copy!

So they parted ways even though they still had deep feelings for each other. They rekindled their feelings quickly but the bad luck also rekindled even quicker. Poor Lucky has to choose between bringing down everyone around her or her Happily Ever After. They do explain why in this magical town that Lucky has no luck it has to do with some family secrets and there are some other magical characters living in this small town. With some other secrets that I am sure the next books in the series will uncover. Rating: 3.5 stars  (4 on goodreads) I started this book last week so it was - end of the year, beginning of the year read. It was a cute quick fantasy whimsy, silly at times, rom com romance.  Thank you Net Galley and Kensington Books for an advanced review copy for my honest and voluntary review.

    Oh my gosh I adored this one! Sometimes I hesitate at picking up a romance because a lot of them feel the same, but this one combined contemporary romance with fairytales and I just ate it up. In this world, Ever After is a magical town that's flown beneath the radar for a long time.

In this world, Ever After is a magical town that's flown beneath the radar for a long time.

These fairies are godmothers to two people who have loved each other for a long time, even though it didn't work out before. Now, just wait. You know what's gonna happen, I know what's gonna happen, we all know what's gonna happen. However, that doesn't take away from the humor and details that make this book what it is. For those of you that have read it, "The Boy Who Missed" made me laugh out loud. For those of you who haven't read it, you owe it to yourself to see what I'm talking about. This was adorable. Yes, the thought of a girl named Lucky who is unlucky might make you want to groan. Yes, a boy named Ransom Payne might make you want to slap the pretentiousness out of his name. But this was such a cute little gem. I had such a fun time reading it and I will no doubt tune in for more stories that take place in this world.

    Quick(ish) Review A cute fairy tale romance with all the trimmings, even three fairy godmothers. The romance itself is sweet if a little underdeveloped, mostly because there was so much time spent establishing the world itself. I was way more interested in that than the MCs tbh, whose relationship began when they were younger and were only told in bits and pieces. I would have loved some time seeing them build their connection, rather than depending on being told about the things that went wrong Quick(ish) Review A cute fairy tale romance with all the trimmings, even three fairy godmothers.

    This book was such a delight! I laughed, I cried, and I wished it would never end. Alas, all good things must come to an end. Thank goodness this is the first book in a new series!! I'm already craving more! First off, this book was hilarious. All the crazy things that happened to Lucky and Ransom were gold.

Thank goodness this is the first book in a new series!! I'm already craving more! First off, this book was hilarious. All the crazy things that happened to Lucky and Ransom were gold. And just when I would think, "Surely, things can't get worse," they did. There was also the creative and fun humor of the three fairy godmothers. I so enjoyed getting their POVs every so often. As well, Lucky's best friend had some great comments and thoughts that had me laughing out loud. But what good is "com" without "rom" in front of it. The romance was so wonderful. At first, I thought Ransom and Lucky were rekindling their feelings for each other too quickly. But as the book progressed, I could see why the author chose to put them back together so swiftly. And, their romantic conflict and troubles were really good and very valid. Sometimes I feel as though the author just sticks some character with an insecurity to ensure they break up with their romantic partner. In this book, however, their conflict had a purpose and truly needed to be gone through so Ransom and Lucky could progress and become the people they needed to be. Along the same lines, I loved that both Lucky and Ransom had to find themselves, figure out who they were alone, before they could figure out who they were together. They had to fight personal demons and overcome their own battles before they could climb the mountain to be together. It was truly so well plotted and written and had me tearing up at the end. My only complaint (and it's a small one) is that I wish their had been more descriptions between dialogue. Sometimes, I'd get confused about who was talking, or wouldn't understand what the character was doing, etc. Also, I think it would have helped me to understand some of the character's motives and thoughts a little bit easier and sooner in the book. Overall, this contemporary, fantasy rom-com is one you do not want to miss! It's incredibly funny, sincere, and a great start to, what is sure to be, a fabulous series. I can't wait to see what the fairy godmothers cook up in the next book! Disclaimer: I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    75 pages in and I just couldn't continue. The writing style and certain points of the story just weren't for me. 75 pages in and I just couldn't continue. The writing style and certain points of the story just weren't for me.

    Thank you to the publisher and goodreads for this giveaway! This is a cleverly written fairy tale story set in Ever After, Missouri. I honestly wasn't sure what to expect when I started reading this book. It pulled me in. I was a very unexpectedly surprised how much I enjoyed Ever After and I'm excited to read what's next in this series. Thank you to the publisher and goodreads for this giveaway!

    "Fairy Godmothers, Inc." isn't the sort of book I usually reach for but sometimes, especially in 2020, you just need some fluffy romance and all the funny shenanigans associated with sweet, meddling magical godmothers. And this hit the spot very well. All of your favorite fairy tale characters live in Ever After, Missouri... even the mice who sewed for Cinderella. The classics are supporting characters to the fairy godmothers - Bluebonnet, Jonquil, and Petunia - who want to revitalize Ever After "Fairy Godmothers, Inc." isn't the sort of book I usually reach for but sometimes, especially in 2020, you just need some fluffy romance and all the funny shenanigans associated with sweet, meddling magical godmothers. And this hit the spot very well. All of your favorite fairy tale characters live in Ever After, Missouri... even the mice who sewed for Cinderella. The classics are supporting characters to the fairy godmothers - Bluebonnet, Jonquil, and Petunia - who want to revitalize Ever After and concoct a scheme for their godchildren Lucky Fujiki (who is not lucky) and Ransom Payne (never did quite figure out the meaning behind his name) to get fake-married in a prince and princess-themed wedding. Lucky (who begins the story knowing nothing about her magical world) and Ransom's would-be love story is fine, though it does slow down to a crawl in places, but the shining stars of the story are the supporting cast. From Bronx, the cardinal (bird, not Catholic prelate) who talks like he might've learned to speak on Don Corleone's shoulder, to Philip the frog (i.e. grumpy Prince Charming still waiting for his kiss... maybe from one of the godmothers), to Brittany and Steven (totally human children of Lucky's best friend and maybe technically her godchildren)... Lucky and Ransom would be fine without them but they are far, far better with them. And I think that sets up the next book in the series very well, Ever After can focus on a new pet project and the old gang can get back together to see it through. I don't laugh often at books, I don't know why, but I absolutely laughed out loud at this book. The page and a half of the godmothers mortifying Ransom with euphemisms for sex was worth re-reading an extra time or two! I really liked it a lot and a lot of people, who are more into fairy tale re-tellings and magical things than me, will absolutely adore it! (Thanks to BookishFirst, Saranna DeWylde, and the publisher for a chance to read this book early in exchange for an honest review.)

This is the first book in a fun new series which combines fantasy and romance. The setting is Ever After, the enchanted town where all things fairy tale come to life. This was a fun rom-com with a lot of euphemisms for sex that were so funny you had no choice but to laugh. I am looking forward to the next book in the series to see more of these characters and see where the stories all go from here.

While I did like the main characters Lucky and Ransom, I think I liked the supporting characters even more! The godmothers are absolutely wonderful with their constant meddling and interference. This book felt like watching the show ONCE UPON A TIME as you wait and see which fairy tale character each person is! There were so many and I loved how they all played some type of important role! There is also more to this book than just being a cute and magical read. The characters deal with “real” issues and have to learn and grow as the book goes on. You will definitely see me taking another trip into Ever After, Missouri! Can’t wait for book two! 4/5 ⭐️

    This was such a charming, funny, a little bit out there, and a little bit R-rated story! I loved how Saranna took the fairytales of our youth and twisted them to make them a little bit more enjoyable for the adult demographic. This book is riddled with easter eggs and they're so fun to find! The story line is a little bit confusing at times, but nothing that I couldn't handle. The entire time I honestly didn't know where Saranna was going to go with the characters.

I promise if you think you know what this book holds, you don't! You just have to read it for yourself.

    HOARDER CHALLENGE #15: FAVE COLOR ---BLUE-- I think the concept by the writer was interesting. I believe she was trying to take fairy tales and convert it into a modern romance if magic were real. The result was too cutesy for me. Lucky who isn't. Ransom who is handsome & successful wants a family yet won't admit to feelings of love. Every time they try to become "intimate", disaster strikes. (the humor) Godmothers who REALLY are fairies. Their best friends start off antagonistically yet are fated to HOARDER CHALLENGE #15: FAVE COLOR ---BLUE-- I think the concept by the writer was interesting.

I don't think i'll continue w/the series.

    Holy Fairy Dust on toast! This book is my new favorite fairytale! Fairy Godmothers, Inc. is an adorably witty and bright book. Meddling is what Petunia, Jonquil, and Bluebonnet Blossom do best and in this story you get plenty of that and more! There's wonderful banter between all the characters, I found myself laughing out loud at some of the antics the Godmothers got up to. Each character is written into the story in such a way you end up rooting for everyone to win...even Melvin. They're wonder Holy Fairy Dust on toast! This book is my new favorite fairytale!

They're wonderfully flawed...or cursed depending on how you look at it. ;) The writing is immersive and lighthearted. Even the romance is written in a way that reflects reality...flawed and humorous at times (though I do hope no one has experienced being pelted with a giant cherry after a kiss...yaknow). I felt so easily drawn into Ever After. It was an incredibly fun escape and unlike traditional fairytales, nothing just fell conveniently into place for any of the characters. Lucky and Ransom had to work for their Happily Ever After and oh, what a fantastic HEA it was! I'm not crying, you're crying! Thank you so much to Kensington Books via BookishFirst for providing me an ARC to read and honestly review.
