Dare to Believe by Dana Marie Bell

Yeah, yeah, I know. I've been lost to the "real" world here for awhile. *shakes head* And though I read a lot of them, I don't usually review e-books. Don't know why; just don't. But, I'm making an exception for this one.

Dana Marie Bell is an interesting author. Her stories run the gamut for shapeshifters (her Halle Pumas series) to Gods (Very Much Alive). With Dare to Believe she has decided to take on the Fae. And it was good! LOL!

Ruby is your every day, average, shy, plump chick. Leo is her super-scrumptious, yummy, delicious (more adjectives please!) boss. Ruby has had a crush on her boss forever, but because she's shy she runs from him and hides. Bad Ruby!

Leo has been in lust with Ruby for...a long time. Ever since he caught her scent. See, Leo's not human. Not even close. He's Fae and Ruby is his mate. Yum!

One night, during the company Halloween party, Leo gets Ruby to dance with him and that's when everything changes. Le sigh.

What was great about this book was the humor, the sex and the overall sweetness of the story. Leo is scrumptious. He's got it bad for Ruby and he's not afraid to show it. Aw shucks.

Ruby is great because she takes it all with a grain of salt. Leo's world is pretty fantastical, but she's not one of those annoying whiny babies who has to scream and cry every time something bad happens. Instead, she sucks it up and moves on.

This story had everything: a sweet love story, a fantastical world, creatures of both good and evil and the "cliffhanger" for book 2 was cruel. I can't wait to read Jaden, Duncan & Moira. Their story had better come soon and how!

Overall Rating: B+

Sounds cute. I'm not usually one who go for Fae characters in books but I might just try this one. Thanks.
