Don't Speak (A Modern Fairytale, #5) [Laire & Erik] by Katy Regnery ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

The little Mermaid have been a favorite of mine for many years, since the Walt Disney movie came when I was just a dreamy little girl. So it's no wonder I was really excited about the modern version. I didn't know how Katy would pull it off, and since I dislike reading any promotional snippets, and since I don't usually read synopsis of books by authors I love (since I'm going to reading then anyway), I came into this one almost totally "blind". I DID read the synopsis just before I opened the first page but it still gave me no real idea of how BEAUTIFUL this book would be, how fairy-tale like, in a way it was even better made than the previous ones in the series, because in every step of the way I felt inside a (modern) fairy tale.

Paint the Stars (Free Fall #3) [Ezra & Dae] by Christina Lee & Nyrae Dawn ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

Ezra and Dae story was truly unique, we already knew it has to be from the previous installments. Ezra is an introvert, who and how can anyone break into his inner shell? That's where Dae comes in. It was really sweet seeing them become friends and slowly morph into a couple almost without both realizing they are actually "there", in love and together. Unlike SO many romance stories it was simply refreshing seeing the friendship buildup BEFORE the steam begins.

See Jane Fall (Heart of Montana #4) [Lars & Jane] by Katy Regnery ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ~~~

Though I enjoyed many things about this book, and though I REALLY loved Lars, I had mixed feelings about Jane and at some point I felt the story dragged, I guess it had mostly to do with Jane, her mixed feelings and insecurities. Even though I felt her pain, even though she is VERY relatable on so many levels, it took her TOO long and while she was worried about HER heart being broken she totally missed how much she hurt Lars with the way she guarded herself.

Midsummer Sweetheart (Heart of Montana #3) [Erik & Katrin] by Katy Regnery ~~~ ★ ★ ★ ★ ½ ~~~

Another sweet and endearing story. Like the previous ones there is something very innocent about the writing and the characters. Don't expect any sex scenes, and be prepared for a rather flowery romance between the MCs. I enjoyed that, they both needed each other, and the way their relationship developed (even though it was a bit fast) they both got what they so deserved. Love eluded both of them, for different reasons entirely but here they got the best match for each other. I loved the Scandinavian references, the way they exchanges small sentences in their mother (and father ;)) tongue. We got a little bit of that in the first installment as well.
