Read to Review- Turning Curse

Title: Turning Curse
Author: A.C. Harrah
Rating: 3/5





Summary
Irresponsible was one word used to describe Prince Liam. Liam preferred fun-loving. After years of pulling pranks on his fellow nobles and ruining balls, Liam’s prospects for a bride are looking dim. At his wits’ end, Liam’s father arranges a marriage between Liam and his best friend Cordelia. She is the last person in the world Liam wants to marry. When Liam confesses this to her, she transforms Liam with a curse.

Now Liam must escape her clutches while breaking her spell, but he is trapped in her castle with no way to escape. His only hope is to persuade Cordelia’s servant Gabrielle to help him. However, Gabrielle has a secret of her own, and helping Liam is something she cannot do


My Review
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
This was a new concept for me, a princess and the frog retelling with a twist, and it was a very quick read and overall pretty enjoyable.
Although Liam grew over the course of the story I could not get over what a spoiled brat he acted like so much of the time, even as a frog he was selfish and I never really connected with him or his struggle, to be honest I kinda thought he deserved the curse and maybe it was for the best cause I think he learned a lot of very valuable life lessons. I think Riona and Liam's father were the only two people I liked, they both tried so hard and tried to find the good in everyone, I was glad they were around. I felt like there were a few things that happened after the news of Liam's condition was public that I thought were a little unnecessary and dragged the book on a little long and I think that was due in large part to the fact that it was a little predictable at the end. I hope it does not look like I am bashing this book cause that was not my intention I liked the book as a whole and I think it is for a specific group of people to love and I jusr might not be it,
I would like to read the next book because it is based more on Liam's brother Alan and I think it would be fun to be back in this world but to get a different view on it and a whole new adventure.
