"Hook's Pan" [Kingdom Series, Book 5] by Marie Hall

My Book Summary : Both are haunted by past events that stole a loved one from them ...
... but will their hearts be able to heal and show them their true feelings for each other or will they part as friends?

Ever since Trishelle's (Trisha) older sister died, she has held herself apart from getting close to anyone who could hurt her especially her heart. So when her best friend, Betty, informs her that soon a fairy named Danika (demon bug) plans to take her to Neverland where she will meet her mate, Captain James Hook, Trisha dosen't believe her thinking it's all a joke. That is until she meets the demon bug and literally lands at Hook's feet. However, when neither believes that Trisha is the reincarnated version of Hook's mate, and even if it was true she is quite different then who she once was, will they be willing to give each other a chance at love before it's too late? Or will they let bygones be bygones and part ways amicably?

My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars, two people learn to open their hearts again to someone new, if only fate and a demon bug or two can give them a helping hand...

Trisha and Hook are a stubborn, adventurous, and entertaining duo that makes you root for them as soon as they meet! Both are still dealing with the deaths of loved ones who have been gone for quite some time, and with through the help of each other they learn to love "again." In addition, their novel opens up a whole new bunch of questions about what will happen next in this series! I cannot wait.

The only thing I do wish is that I liked the first few chapters of the novel, since I found them to be a bit slow. Yet, once Trisha and Hook get into the same room the action starts getting good!

I recommend this novel and series to anyone who likes new takes on fairy tales, especially if you were the one always rooting for the "bad guy." =0)

Book Teaser(s) :
"You're lying. You're just teasing me."
He lifted one shoulder, picking at the tip of his hook. "Hmm."
She licked her lips. "You know that's not really an answer. And anyway, I thought genies could only grant three wishes."
"It's a cursed chest, the genie can deny the wisher nothing. Endless treasure."
"And it's inside your cabin, maybe it's not a lie. Seems like the kind of thing a dastardly pirate would want to keep close to him."
Eyes sparkling, he tipped his head. "Perhaps. Or perhaps it was an elaborate lie to force you to bend over so I could sneak a look at your red drawers again."
Biting her lip, she tugged the frock down, only now realizing she'd completely exposed herself to him. "You jerk."
He laughed. "Be that as it may, you will not leave this room unless you change. So what will it be, little bird? Trust or no?"
"Why do you keep calling me that?" she growled, more because if she didn't, she'd laugh. The man was obnoxiously hot and funny, who knew the villainous Hook had it in him?
"Because you've the skinny little legs of a bird and you fell in front of me like a chick from a nest. I'll admit, I've another reason for asking you to change. I despise your clothing. In fact, I fight the urge to rip it from you."
At first she almost grinned, until she noticed the sparkle in his eyes was gone. One part of his story did seem true, Hook hated Pan as much as the book portrayed. ~ within Chapter 7
"Call me a bastard," he growled, refusing to censure his thoughts in that moment because his heart was thumping too hard and his chest ached with something he could not name, "but I aim to ruin you for any other man." ~ within Chapter 13
