The Empress's New Lingerie: Bedtime Stories for Grownups by: Hillary Rollins
Stars: ☠
Read: 3.18.2012

Summary: Ever consider what the beast really wanted with his young Beauty? Find out in this collection of wittily reimagined fairy tales for a strictly adult audience. In the title story, a haughty princess parades in front of her people and ends up showing off far more than her leadership skills. A modern-day Cinderella attends the palace ball in a pair of black patent-leather stiletto heels guaranteed to bring the foot-worshiping prince to his knees. The seven dwarves prove that what they lack in size they more than make up for in numbers; young Jackie learns more about pleasure from a beanstalk than she ever thought possible; and Goldie realizes that nothing is too hot when she sets about finding out which of three “bare” bachelors is neither too big nor too small, but just right. Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Sleeping Beauty–the erotic potential of these classic fairy tales and more is finally and fully realized in Hillary Rollins’s entertaining and titillating collection of bedtime stories for grown-ups. If you ever have trouble falling asleep, or if you want to get your partner in the mood to call it a day, try snuggling under the covers with these beautifully written and erotically self-assured tales from the annals of childhood. Better yet, read them aloud. There are few pleasures greater than sharing a good story with someone you love.

Thoughts: OMG the stories were too short to get into any of the stories and I actually finished the book but wish I didn't!

Summary: Emily Kane studies martial arts, but she never thought she'd have to use them... until her home is destroyed in a night time attack. Her family goes into hiding and wants her to assume a new identity on the run with them. But she refuses to become a fugitive and live a lie, as she puts it. She is determined to keep her name, to salvage the life she knows and above all to stay in school, even if she has to do it all on her own. But this may mean fighting off the people who attacked her home, and who may still be hunting for her. Along the way she learns she is not who she thinks she is, and her family is not who she thinks they are either. Who exactly is Emily Kane? Why is she so good at fighting? To solve the mystery of her identity she turns to her high school classmates. She makes new friends when she had always been a loner. But then she has to protect them from the danger swirling darkly around her. The only solution may be to draw her enemies out into the open and confront them face to face.

Thoughts: This book wasn't for me at all, which i am sorry about... I couldn't even get into it to make a proper review. :( I know I'm no help at all.
