Constance Phillips offers an interesting and fresh concept. After the shocking death of her parents and an overbearing binding proposal, Monique Saysin finds herself fleeing the Fairy World, everyone and everything she’s ever known. Constantly on the run trying to remain hidden from her brother Kieran and the power hungry would be suitor Euro Teneyck, she finds herself broke and alone within the Human world. Struggling to find a way to make ends meet, she is drawn to her mysterious and alluring new boss, Daniel Elliot, and the fact that he is seemingly immune to her fairy spells and powers. As the story unravels and the unknown pieces slowly start to fall into place you realize that things aren’t always quite what they seem between the World of Fairies and Humans. Fairyproof is an interesting read but I struggled to feel anything for the characters or the story. 3 Stars ~Ashley
When got me with this book is the fact that Monique a fairy is running from her family, something I wish I could do sometimes. Although her reasoning is to get away from Eero who wants to bond with her and it's something that she doesn't want because he's an evil fairy. Me I just want to run away for me time. While on the move she realizes that she needs a job to make money because she used all of her stones. I want to say that it seems like it works the same as money in the fairy world. She ends up answering a receptionist ad for a man named Daniel who owns a financial company. who is also a human. Totally against fairy rules. She is instantly attracted and unbeknownst to her, so is he. But he had just got out of a relationship because his ex just left him before, taking his ring with him. I don't want to give away too much in this review. There is a lot going on in this book. Brother trying to track down Monique, Eero the evil Fairy trying to locate her and bond with her, dealing with the death of her parents. And unlocking some secrets that could either help the Council continue to strive or cause Eero to cause the Council to crumble and have him as ruler of the Fairy world. I would definitely recommend this book. It IS different from most other paranormal books. Which is why I enjoyed it. Well I must go before I burn my dinner, but hey, maybe then I could be alone because everyone else will go get themselves something to eat, instead of bothering me every minute while I was trying to write this. Happy Reading!!!! 4.5 Stars ~Jaime
