nobody's damsel Today, I’m happy to be participating in EM Tippetts’ blog tour for Nobody’s Damsel, the second book in the Fairytale series.

To get the full effect of the story, you really must read Someone Else’s Fairytale first, and in this review will be spoilers for the first book, so if you haven’t read it and don’t want to be spoiled, stop reading now and go buy both books.

Nobody’s Damsel follows Chloe and Jason as the navigate their early days of marriage. The press, intrigued by Jason’s marriage to a non-celebrity, even follows Chloe to her crime scene investigation job in Albuquerque. As the investigation continues, scrutiny on Jason and Chloe’s marriage grows, and more than one person wonders if a happily ever after ending is in store for our hero couple.

I found myself liking both Someone Else’s Fairytale and Nobody’s Damsel more than I expected to. At times I found myself getting frustrated with Chloe’s reluctance to rely on Jason, until I realized I’d probably be very much like that, myself. And although I’ve never had the paparazzi chasing me down, I can only imagine what it is like for someone who didn’t choose to be famous (and even those who do choose a career that puts them in the limelight) to have their every action under scrutiny.

Tippetts gives us likable characters, and weaves in Chloe’s backstory without making the tale overdramatic. Jason’s celebrity seems credible- as someone who really tries to maintain ties with the people who knew him before he was a movie star. And while I don’t know that in reality Chloe would be able to maintain such a semblance of normalcy, the beauty of a book is that we as readers get the best of both worlds: the fantasy of a whirlwind, swept-off-our-feet, relationship with a dreamy actor, but who can also maintain our own lives.  I’m not sure the two gel well in reality, but it is a pleasure to read.

I enjoyed the more dramatic sub-plot to the stories, too, which I won’t spoil here, and I am looking forward to reading more about Jason and Chloe.
