Review Rating:



First of all…can I just say…this cover is gorgeous!! This anthology is filled with your darkest, dirtiest fantasies. The tales inside twisted fairy tales that include filthy rich men, a masquerade ball, and dark desires that will be fulfilled and they are written by some of the best authors in the industry.

Every story within this anthology is a fully complete short story that is a new twisted take on a beloved classic fairy tale. Each one is centered around the same evening of the same masquerade ball, but then they each have their own plot aside from that similarity. Whether it is Cinderella, Snow White, or Beauty and the Beast each twisted story will steam up your reading fantasy and give you a HEA.

Here is just a peek into a few of the stories contained within the anthology:

King Midas by Skye Warren; Raoul Midas is a man who can turn anything into gold, but he loathes human touch. He finds pleasure in woman by buying their affection, until he hires Anita to be his escort to the masquerade ball. After just one night with her he know he needs more, but is he willing to give in to her touch.

The Princess and the Pea by Sierra Simone; Morgan is a Domme at odds with her own wants and desires. Morgan believes she should only be in charge, but when she gives in on the night where her ex tempts her with all of her desires she is torn between the other half she has always tried to keep under control. Is she really ready to give that part up of herself?

Beauty and the Beast by Willow Winters. Calum may be known as a beast to many in the business world but Annabelle isn’t afraid of the man that has sets his sights on her at the ball. When the night escalates and she finds herself back at his home she isn’t afraid of the beast, even when she discovers he wants to keep her forever.

King Thrushbeard by Cora Reilly. When Jean has to marry to save her family, she didn’t plan on the overbearing Peyton to come along and demand all her firsts. Set out on defying Peyton she goes to the ball to give someone else her firsts, but she also didn’t plan on a mysterious stranger to intrigue her quite so quickly.

Snow White by T.M. Frazier is a dark retelling of the Hunter and Snow White that has every element of original fairy tale, including where the stepmother wants evidence of Snow White’s death which includes her bloody heart. This tale isn’t for the faint of heart and is by far the darkest of the stories…but if you know and love T.M. Frazier you wouldn’t have it any other way.


In a castle adorned with gems, coated in gold, and dusted with luxury, the youngest of the Constantine Family will be introduced to the elite of New York. But the party isn’t all glamor. Villains lurk in dark corners, evil deals are struck, and starcrossed loves are born.

Read Kay’s Review: N9NE



T.M. (Tracey Marie) Frazier never dreamed that a single person would ever read a word she wrote when she published her first book. Now, she is a five-time USA Today bestselling author and her books have been translated into numerous languages and published all around the world.

T.M. enjoys writing what she calls ‘wrong side of the tracks romance’ with morally corrupt anti-heroes and ballsy heroines.

Her books have been described as raw, dark and gritty. Basically, what that means, is while some authors are great at describing a flower as it blooms, T.M. is better at describing it in the final stages of decay.

She loves meeting her readers, but if you see her at an event please don’t pinch her because she’s not ready to wake up from this amazing dream.

Review – N9NE: The Tale of Kevin Clearwater by T.M. Frazier


N9NE; The Tale of Kevin Clearwater: King #9 (Series)
by T.M. Frazier (Author)

This review is from: June 16, 2019 By Kay Daniels
Heat Level:🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

The cover, the teasers, the blurb…they all drew me in, I was ready for wicked, hot, and suspenseful, which Nine all delivered on. I was not prepared for the sensitive soul that was part of Kevin Clearwater, nor the humor that was sprinkled throughout the entire book. Nine gave me so much more than I was expecting and it was a fantastic read!

Although Nine is #9 in the King series (the number 9 is significant throughout the entire book-I adore T.M. and her brilliance in this maneuver) it can be read as a standalone. This was a first read for me, I jumped right in, had never read T.M. Frazier, nor any of the preceding books. I had absolutely no trouble following the story, nor the additional characters that popped up, but I am also insanely intrigued to catch up on what I’ve missed from meeting people and plan to read more about them in the future.

I do want to add a disclaimer–Nine contains sensitive subject matter that may either trigger readers, or just be hard for some people to read. My suggestion if this is the case for you, skip over or read past it, because the ending will have you in tears and will certainly justify the means of how the story got there. I implore you to not give up on it, I applaud authors who have the courage to write about sensitive material it can’t be easy.

Nine is a story about two lost souls, Nine/Kevin and Lenore/Lenny, who take a very broken path to find one another. For Kevin; he was a broken teen and had given up on life. Starving, beaten, a boy basically tossed away with no one who cared about whether he lived or died, the night he met Lenny, she saved his life without her ever knowing she had such a huge impact.

Lenny was a girl who had everything; a family who loved her, a good home, and friends. Her life came crashing to a halt in an instant when she lost everything, the very same day when she met Kevin. With nothing left to live for she met someone who changed her mind all on the count of nine.

Both would change that night. They wouldn’t see each other for years. It would take life altering circumstances to place Nine and Lenny back into each others paths, but once Nine has Lenny by his side again, he is determined not to lose her again.
