The Muse and the Fairytale by Mary Smith
My rating: 4 1/2 of 5 Stars
Mary Smith scores with The Muse and the Fairytale the first book in the New Hampshire Bears Series. Hockey romance writer Meadow Hylton dreams of meeting her prince charming. What she doesn’t expect is New Hampshire Bears hockey player Kyson Wick that is 10 years her younger. This contemporary sports romance is fast-paced and suitable for new adult and adult audiences.
I loved both characters. I read a lot of sports romances, so I enjoyed that Meadow was a hockey romance writer. It was refreshing and fun to hear a story from an author's perspective. I love the name of her cat. Kyson is great. He is mature for twenty-five. He is hard working and down to earth. I appreciate that they met because Kyson agrees to be a cover model for Meadow’s next book. Kyson’s ex-girlfriend is a piece of work. I cannot believe he was with her for five years. She is not a nice person.
I enjoyed the plot and like how the story was resolved. The hockey scenes were well described and exciting. The story was realistic and believable. The Muse and the Fairytale had everything you would expect from a contemporary sports romance: humor, romance, hockey, drama, conflict, and likable characters. I will definitely continue to follow this series.
