Goodreads Description:

Morgan Sparks has always known that she and her boyfriend, Cam, are made for each other. But when Cam’s cousin Pip comes to stay with the family, Cam seems depressed. Finally Cam confesses to Morgan what’s going on: Cam is a fairy. The night he was born, fairies came down and switched him with a healthy human boy. Nobody expected Cam to live, and nobody expected his biological brother, heir to the fairy throne, to die. But both things happened, and now the fairies want Cam back to take his rightful place as Fairy King.

Even as Cam physically changes, becoming more miserable each day, he and Morgan pledge to fool the fairies and stay together forever. But by the time Cam has to decide once and for all what to do, Morgan’s no longer sure what’s best for everyone, or whether her and Cam’s love can weather an uncertain future.

My Review:
I have to admit what first drew me to this book was the cover. Isn't pretty? Okay, okay, so sometimes I do judge a  book by it's cover.
Really though, this is my second book my Balog, I really like her writing so I was pretty sure I would like this one as well, pretty cover and all. I wasn't wrong. This was a great story. Super easy read, super cute and it had a HEA that I am so fond of. 
I loved the different take on fairies and all the characters were great ones that you couldn't help but like.
I think this was a great fun summer read.


  1. This book does sound good, although maybe a bit sad depending on what happens at the end! I love when authors can give a different spin on the usual supernatural creatures so the stories don't get montonous; I hate getting that feeling like "I feel like I've read this book before!" And yes, the cover is very pretty!
