Goodreads Summary: Armed with wings and a blue wand, being a fairy godmother should be easy ... unless your name is Ash, and you're a dude.
Ash Summerland has it all–good looks, popularity, and the best grades at The Academy of Magical Beings. Ready to complete his last assignment in order to graduate, Ash is confident he will get the apprenticeship he wants. When he opens the letter from the Council, he is shocked to discover he has been assigned to apprentice Lady Shenelle, Keeper of Happy Endings. A.K.A. the head fairy godmother. Ash is forced to grant three wishes to a troubled human girl named Kendall, and ultimately give her a "happy ever after". But Kendall turns out to be more than he bargained for. Still grieving over her father's death, Kendall doesn't want anything to do with him. And worst of all, she doesn't believe in happy endings.
I knew by just reading the first page that I was going to love his book. I loved Ash and Kendall instantly. Everything about this book made me smile. I thought Kendall and Ash worked well together. I also really enjoyed the twists and turns of the story. I loved the change in point of views for the telling of the story. I really liked being in Ash and Kendall's heads, and seeing things through their eyes. Especially about each other. They are both hurting for different reasons, and realize how much they need someone else. I LOVED the ending. All the characters are well written and fun. I adored Kendall's sister Ellie. I love it when authors really invest in their
secondary characters, Chantele did this very well.
5 out of 5 stars. This is Chantele's first book. It was amazing, and I can't wait for Book 2. Find Chantele on her Blog, Facebook, and Twitter.
