Thoughts:

Sadie used to be a successful attorney with a bright future ahead of her. She was even engaged to her boyfriend. That all changed when she bet everything on a case only to lose in the end. Her fiance left her for some other girl, and Sadie went bankrupt after spending almost all her money to fund the lawsuit that ruined her life. She desperately needs a night to forget how much her life sucks, which is why she fills out a dating profile on the 1Night Stand website.

Jace is no ordinary fairy; in less than a week, he will be crowned the king of Fairyville. His parents are pressuring him to find a queen, something Jace is dreading. He’s always been fascinated by humans, though, so he’s decided to spend one last night in the human realm with a human woman. The mysterious Madame Evangeline of 1Night Stand has set him up with Sadie before he must leave to fulfill his destiny.

Fairy Casanova is a quick, steamy read. Sadie and Jace are likable characters, and they were combustible together. They were attracted to each other instantly, and their scenes together were pretty hot. They fell in love too quickly for my taste, but then again, since this is a short story, so it’s not like they had a whole lot of time to get to know each other.

This was the first 1Night Stand book I’ve read, and I thought it was an enjoyable novella. I’d definitely be interested in reading more of the stories in this series.

Memorable Quotes:

I admit, I sometimes do the same with scary movies…

“What’d you ask for?”
“I asked for someone open-minded and willing to embrace the paranormal.” Riiight. She’d never been accused of being a paranormal embracer. Scary movies made her cry. The first page of a horror book sequestered her beneath the covers, praying nothing limped out of her closet or crawled from underneath her bed. She flat out did not do “paranormal.” As for “open-minded”… ha! She was an attorney, which pretty much explained everything.

Yeah, I would too if I were her…

“That’s retaliation for almost invalidating my stamina.”
Sadie laughed weakly at his haughty turn of phrase. “I like how you get even, Mr. Fairy Man.”

If you liked Fairy Casanova…

You might also like Rebirth (check out the GraveTells review for Rebirth here) by Rebecca Royce, another paranormal story in the 1Night Stand series.

You should also definitely check out the other books in the 1Night Stand series. There are many different novellas by a variety of authors, and the stories are all sexy and hot!

Final Thoughts:

If you’re looking for a fast, erotic read with plenty of steamy scenes and a supernatural twist, you should give Fairy Casanova a try! It’s worth a look!

I'm an avid reader who loves Paranormal Romance, Urban Fantasy, and Young Adult books! Despite the fact that my TBR pile is huge, I simply can't stop myself from constantly looking for new reads. I've always loved to read, but my love for books has grown in the past few years (Yes, I admit, Twilight was one of the first PNR books I'd ever read.) Since then, I've discovered many amazing authors and books that I hope to share with more people. Books are an escape for me, and without them..well, life would suck. Alot. Any author who can make me forget about real life by pulling me into their story and getting me to genuinely care about their characters is a good author in my book. I also love authors who write about strong, gorgeous, sexy alpha males. I mean, c'mon, who doesn't love a good alpha male? When I'm not reading (gasp!), I'm usually going to classes, studying, or spending time with family and friends.
