Review – Troll-y Yours by Sheri Fredricks

Trolly

SHE TAKES A CHANCE.

Determined to forge a better life, Ella launches her new business with high hopes—until a sexy Centaur bumps into her and throws her life off course forever. Voted “Most Eligible Bachelor in Boronda”, Aleksander shakes up her world and tilts her in more ways than one.

HE’S IN DANGEROUS TERRITORY.

Years of warfare and countless bedroom encounters have stolen Kempor Aleksander’s luster for life. He never expects to rediscover his zeal in the small, redheaded form of Ella the Troll, who fires his blood hotter than the deepest caverns in the forest.

A PASSION SO HOT.

But as trouble lingers in their midst—and edges ever closer—Alek and Ella spiral into troubled terrain. Turning to each other, the pair face down dangers that run impenetrably deep in their mythological world. But will the two lovers discover a passion that runs even deeper?

Review by Cara

All right, I gotta write this review quickly, because I can’t wait to go back and read Fredricks first book! Troll-y yours is a stand-alone novel, but I think the reading might have been enhanced if I had read them in order. No matter, this book was a great read! The very first chapter had me laughing, and hoping that the train of thought that Aleksander was having during an..uh..intimate encounter had never been thought in my presence!

Ella and Aleksander were definitely a two sides of the track sort of story, with Ella having poor self-esteem…I just realized her business fell by the wayside- I wonder what will happen there? Anyway, Aleksander (or Al Hedson, lol) is a centaur Casanova of great repute- and he falls hard for Ella. It is great fun to watch these two dance around one another, and see how they work through their own personal issues. And who ever thought Trolls could be sexy? Certainly not I, and as far as I know, they are very rarely (if ever?) portrayed as possibly handsome individuals.

Anyway, if you are looking for a fun, sexy fantasy read, this one is for you! Filled with intrigue, romance, humor, and a great cast of secondary characters, I bet you’ll devour this one as quickly as I did! I look forward to reading (much) more of this author. Why the comment about the first book? I didn’t really understand the way the kingdom worked- is is on the same plane as humans? Why don’t more people stumble into it? I’m always curious to learn more about a book.
