It started with fire.

Not the kind that burns inside you and melts your heart into a mess of happy feelings. A real one. One that rips through wood and disintegrates brick and bone, leaving ashes and orphans in its wake.

Death would have saved me from a rocky family life. There would be no cigarette burns on the soles of my feet, no vicious words engraved in my mind, and no Kai Madison. The friend who saw past the scars and offered me pennies for my secrets. The guy who stole my heart with a single kiss in the middle of a rose garden on a snowy winter.

Nothing would have been easier to leave behind—to vanish from—but for the past four years, I've been isolated from the world, living in a hospital room and helping the Feds build a case against my foster-dad. Now I'm free and willing to risk my life to see him again.

There's only one problem. I'm no longer imperfect. I have the same heart, but a different face.

You know you can tell me anything, right?”

What do I have to tell?” My body aches in protest, reminding me of the many secrets hidden just underneath the layers of cloth, and the many more beneath the layers of skin. What good does voicing truths do? A shared burden is still heavy, and I like feeling weightless in his presence.

Everything…” He slips closer, breaths landing on my trembling lips. His thick blond lashes flutter, and in that same exact instant, our lips touch. And touch again.

Silk and smooth. Like melting ice.

They glide over mine, as though one year of life has blessed him with skill, my inexperience clearly evident in my ragged breaths. But he doesn’t seem to mind. When he tears his lips from mine, his hand falls to my chin, and he tilts it upward to face him. “You’re so different, Thorn.” Hovering his lips a couple inches away from mine, he whispers, “Be careful with the Del Rios. They aren’t who you think they are.”

Review:  Imperfect Princess is a great way to start the Modern Princesses collection. Imperfect Princess is an emotionally charged read, based on The Snow Queen. Now I have to say that this isn't a fairy tale I'm very familiar with, so the story just had to hold its own with me, and it really pulled me in right away.

Its Rose who has the life that is not what it seems when she's at Camelot U. She's spent years with surgeries to correct injuries sustained when her foster father tried to kill her and his wife along with himself or so it seems

Kai is the boy she loved then, but he can't know who she is now because of the federal case. Its got a whole Witness Protection thing going on, and a mystery involving Penny/Rose's foster family. Its a little hard to imagine how a child that ended up in the system, ends up with a foster family with mafia connections and then gets sent to wealthy people who essentially pay to fix her and that's how she ends up in Camelot U.

There are a lot of twists and turns as Penny/Rose finds her way back into Kai's heart. Her past makes for a gripping and sad story.

This story is absolutely amazing and unputdownable.

About Sonya
Sonya’s a nerd—a cool nerd—who loves science, books, make-up and unicorns. She even has unicorn slippers and unicorn plushes adorn her office. It’s not obsession (or so she says), it’s simply an ode to her imaginative side.
She believes in fairytales and in the beautiful things a mind can conjure. She’s a firm believer of empowering the crazy fictional ideas, putting them down on paper (figurative paper because she’s not a fan of writing in notebooks), and letting them flourish into a story. Sometimes that story is about psychos and murders.
Don’t believe me? Ask her in any of her social media. She’s all about those connections.
There’s so much potential in a dream, not exploring it seems like such a waste of something absolutely beautiful.”
