    I don t have a whole lot to say about this novella I don t normally read a lot of romance, so it was a little out of my comfort zone But it was sweet, simple, a little bit funny, had dialogue which was cute and a little witty, and gave an overall feeling of warmth There were clich s, oh boy were there, but I didn t find the story dragging at all, and I liked the feel of the piece After reading this story, I might be inclined to purchase some of the author s other works if the chance arises, I don t have a whole lot to say about this novella I don t normally read a lot of romance, so it was a little out of my comfort zone But it was sweet, simple, a little bit funny, had dialogue which was cute and a little witty, and gave an overall feeling of warmth There were clich s, oh boy were there, but I didn t find the story dragging at all, and I liked the feel of the piece After reading this story, I might be inclined to purchase some of the author s other works if the chance arises, where I probably wouldn t have even thought about it before I would recommend it to someone wanting a fairytalegrounded in the real world than in fantasy, and for a quick and happy read

    I was awarded this book from netgalley.I enjoyed this re telling of a well known fairy tale, it has fresh characters, we all know about kissing a frog and he turns into the perfect prince.The likableness of everyone Except the witch, of course was easy to read, no stress involved A story that feels good, a happy ending.Maybe it is a bit sexy for the little ones, but still tame, and makes you root for the girl to get her prince.

    Cynical Los Angeles artist Sofia agrees to frog sit her niece s pet frog Toad As she finds herself chatting to the frog like it s a real person, quite possibly she s finally gone crazy, she decides to pick the frog up and give it a kiss A short while later, she steps out of the shower in a towel, into her living room, and comes face to face with a handsome guy insisting he was Toadand that he s a prince.I love a good fairy tale and I love it when author s decide to modernize them I thoug Cynical Los Angeles artist Sofia agrees to frog sit her niece s pet frog Toad As she finds herself chatting to the frog like it s a real person, quite possibly she s finally gone crazy, she decides to pick the frog up and give it a kiss A short while later, she steps out of the shower in a towel, into her living room, and comes face to face with a handsome guy insisting he was Toadand that he s a prince.I love a good fairy tale and I love it when author s decide to modernize them I thought this was a well written, speedy little romp It s sweet, it s satisfying and it s far too cute Sofia s barriers break down, and there s plenty of humour What do you expect when you have to take a two centuries old prince shopping for modern day clothes, give him his first ride in a car, and give him his first McDonalds A great little pick up for when you re having a bad day and need a dose of magic

    I love modern takes on classic fairy tales Although Kiss That Frog is of the shorter variety, it is full of charm and feel good romance It was a very satisfying, easy read, which can be hard to do with short stories It s really cute how Sophia seems cynical and guarded, yet she starts opening up to this pet frog she s petsitting Even in his frog form they have this connection that pushes past Sophia s walls she s so carefully built Kiss That Frog is perfect for a fun, quick read, for thos I love modern takes on classic fairy tales Although Kiss That Frog is of the shorter variety, it is full of charm and feel good romance It was a very satisfying, easy read, which can be hard to do with short stories It s really cute how Sophia seems cynical and guarded, yet she starts opening up to this pet frog she s petsitting Even in his frog form they have this connection that pushes past Sophia s walls she s so carefully built Kiss That Frog is perfect for a fun, quick read, for those days when you need a little charm to perk you up I received this ebook from Netgalley for review purposes

    This was really funny and adorable especially for a modernized fairy tale I loved Sofia s character and the way she took to Toad the frog eventually It is almost a lesson in keeping an open mind and learning from your surroundings It.was short and sweet and a very good read Easily read in one sitting and would probably be good for a rainy day or a day at the beach I would recommend this story to romance enthusiasts and fantasy lovers alike This book is suitable for adult readers
