ARC Review: His Fairy Godfather by Cate Ashwood and Nico Jaye

His Fairy Godfather
From the blurb:

Since the death of his father, Trick Grigsby has fought to keep his head above water. Following in his father’s footsteps as a talented architect, he hopes to work his way up at the firm. Unfortunately, the company’s new owner barely resembles the man who was once Trick’s father’s best friend. Trick’s days are filled with drudgery and cruel remarks from the man who was supposed to be his mentor—along with his two sons, whose only jobs seem to be making Trick’s life miserable.

But all that is about to change.

Edwin Goodmaker struggled through his fairy godparent curriculum, but his mother—the reigning Fairy Queen—has a simple solution: Edwin will go to New York City and get some practical experience. When he meets Trick, Edwin knows he’s found a worthy charge, and he’s sure he can help Trick achieve all of his heart’s desires. Edwin falls for Trick, but with everything standing in their way, a fairy-tale ending might remain nothing more than a dream.

Heather's rating:

Sugary, sugary sweet holiday story.

His Fairy Godfather was an easy, pleasant read, even if it didn't wow me.

Trick (gah, hated that name), was beaten down and weary, working in an abusive environment, and poor as dirt. I honestly didn't get why he stayed at his hellish job (yeah, I know the reasons in the book), because his work life was just THAT extreme. Enter in Edwin, the fairy godfather-in-training.

Edwin was a cute, albeit somewhat sex-less character for me, with all of his child-like innocence. I expected a lot of tension with the big reveal that he was a fairy (no, not that kind of fairy, but THAT kind of fairy... actually, both), but it was a very anticlimactic thing. Actually, the whole book was sort of like that. I was expecting some tension, something big to happen, and nothing ever really did.

The story was sweet and went pretty much exactly how I was expecting it to. I didn't feel a lot of sexual chemistry between Trick and Edwin, but they were cute as a couple. This is a cheery, cinderfella story with an upbeat feel. While I enjoyed it, it also gets a little lost in the mix of all the other fabulous holiday romances out there, many of which surpass this one.

An easy, fun story for when you wish you had a little fairy godfather to bring some holiday cheer.
