Cari has written a funny, sexy, and amusing book with The Princess Tied, and I am so here for it! It is a takeoff on The Princess Bride, and it is definitely a kissing book, as well as a fucking book.
(Note, this was supposed to be written on Friday, but I was having issues with allergies that left my eyes really blurry, which made typing interesting.) (Thank goodness for Benedryl.)(Makes me really sleepy though.)
We start with John clawing his way out of hell. He was sent there by The Storyteller, who also took his brother Xander, who happens to be betrothed to Princess Pollianna, AKA Po, who is the ruler of the kingdom of Bitzocoin. He wants to go after the princess, because she’s doing absolutely nothing to find his brother. He’s going to do everything he can to get his brother back, including kidnapping the Princess and forcing her to help him find Xander.
Po is worried about Xander, but he made her vow to him that she wouldn’t go looking for him if something happened to him, so she hasn’t been doing much. And of course, John is pissy about that, and I don’t blame him. So, he sneaks into her bedroom and kidnaps her. Or, rather, tries to kidnap her, but he needs her help to do it.
Meanwhile, Xander has been drugged by the Storyteller. He gets drugged daily, after a conversation with the Storyteller.
Po is really smart, at least book smart, but I think that she is less smart when it comes to people. I don’t really think that’s her fault though, as she is a Princess, and she’s never really had to be all that people smart. She has to be ruler smart, which I think is pretty good thing for her in general, but not what most people would need to have. She does a really good job for her kingdom, including wheeling and dealing on the stock market, making loads of money and boosting the economy.
I like John. I think that he is not nearly as bad as he thinks he is. I mean, he does have an evil streak, but he keeps that under control. I also think he ends up caring for people more than he thought that he could. I have a feeling that the only person he really cared for or cared about was Xander.
Ruth, Shades, and Ruff are just a lot of fun to have around, and I think that without them, the book wouldn’t have moved as well. I pretty much just adore Ruff, because who wouldn’t.
I love the casket.
OK, that’s all I have to say today! Go check it out! Happy reading!
