REVIEW: Yuki by Nicolette Andrews

This is book two in the Tales of Akatsuki series.

Book Blurb: Hotaru is in need of a wife and an alliance to stop a war.

Yuki dreams of freedom and has no intention of marrying, ever.

To get the alliance he desperately needs, Hotaru must woo Yuki. But Yuki has other plans.

Can these two opposites ever find love?

My Review: This story is book two in the Tales of Akatsuki. I read the first book Kitsune when it was released and loved it. So I was excited to read this next tale in the series. So my honest opinion is that while I like Hotaru I didn't like Yuki so much. She was way too headstrong and seemed super against marriage without love. But back in the day marriages were mostly political and arranged without the woman's consent most of the time  Poor Hotaru had to deal with her shitty attitude and to top it off he had to deal with the stepmother trying to seduce him almost every time he turned around. I really like that the author blended the Disney version of the story with the original fairytale while putting her own spin on the tale.

That being said I did enjoy this story and I'm looking forward to reading Okami when it's released soon.

Rating: ★★★★☆

* I received an advanced copy of the book from the author. All opinions are my own.
