Book Info

Title: Once Upon A Time

Author: S.K. Hartley

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.

My Review
 Simply brilliant :)

This is the first book I read by S.K. Hartley but I have to say that I made a huge mistake in not reading any of her books before now. I had a blast reading this story. It was fun, hot, romantic, heartbreaking. Pretty much it had a little bit of everything and it was so intriguing and entertaining to read that I read it in one sitting. I simply couldn't stop :)

Payton and Gabriel were so much fun to read about. I loved their interactions and constant verbal sparring. And damn, were they hot together. I have to caution you... there were some extremely pantie melting scenes. And Gabriel Black is definitely drool-worthy with his black hair and penetrating grey eyes, washboard abs and the body of a Greek god :) YUMMY :) I definitely enjoyed his dominant streak but I loved the contrast with his tender and caring side. It made him just that much more attractive :) And does he know how to express his feelings. Any man who can say how he feels and makes it sound that hot and romantic at the same time deserves to get his girl ;)

Payton, on the other hand is completely against anything longer than a one-night stand :) She has some baggage from her past that dictates her actions and in any case she is quite stubborn to relent and acknowledge her feelings. And that's where the verbal sparring and the sexual tension between her and Gabriel come from. I have to say that these parts were some of my favorites. I loved the moments when she was going from 0 to 60 every time he touches her and in a second she was boiling with anger because of something Gabriel said :D So much fun :D

A great addition to the story are Payton's best friends, Kylie and Quinn. They are both kind of eccentric and so much fun. I am really hoping to get the story of Kylie and Luca. I think it will be also a great one :)

In a few words, the book is great. It is a light and funny read with a touch of sizzling hot. So definitely a must read :) I can't wait to see what else S. K. Hartley will come up with. And I am definitely diving into reading the rest of her books :)
