Publisher's Summary

Working for Grimm isn't Marissa Locks' dream job. But when your parents trade you to a fairy godfather for a miracle, you don't have many career options. To pay off her parents' debt and earn her freedom, Marissa must do whatever Grimm asks, no matter what fairy-tale fiasco she's called on to deal with.

Setting up a second-rate princess with a first-class prince is just another day at the office. But when the matchmaking goes wrong, Marissa and Grimm find themselves in a bigger magical muddle than ever before. Not only has the prince gone missing, but the Fae are gearing up to attack Kingdom, and a new Fairy Godmother is sniffing around Grimm's turf, threatening Marissa with the one thing she can't resist: her heart's wishes.

Now Marissa will have to take on Fairies, Fae, dragons, and princesses to save the realm - or give up any hope of ever getting her happy ending.

Surprisingly good!

I literally have hundreds of books in my audible library, and thought I had listened to all of the light weight but interesting female lead fantasies worth listening to on audible (as well as many that are not worth while). This one was a surprising find, very fun and interesting world creation and good characters. Well worth a listen, I just got the next in series.

Marissa is a strong resilient woman betrayed by her parents.

Marissa is sold to Grimm's agency so her little sister can get her heart repaired. One of her jobs is to see the smooth joining of a princess and prince. If it seems a joining will not go smoothly she dates the prince gets him interested in her then has a messey, loud breakup in front of a group of people blaming him for being a jerk. Then he is happy to go for the princess. This is how she meets Liam and dumps him in horrid fashion. He is stunned as he really liked her. Marissa feels terrible as she had liked him too. Her job came first. She has many close calls on her assignments and makes lots of enemies. Good character development.

A good read

This book was well written, creative and a great start to a new series. It reminded me of Kim Harrison's books, just less romance and no sex. However, despite missing those 2 attributes it was still a great read.
