Review: Her Mad Hatter (Kingdom #1) by Marie Hall

Alice is all grown up. Running the Mad Hatter's Cupcakery and Tea Shoppe is a delicious job, until fate--and a fairy godmother with a weakness for bad boys--throws her a curveball. Now, Alice is the newest resident of Wonderland, where the Mad Hatter fuels her fantasies and thrills her body with his dark touch.

The Mad Hatter may have a voice and a body made for sex, but he takes no lovers. Ever. But a determined fairy godmother has forced Alice into Wonderland--and his arms. Now, as desire and madness converge, the Hatter must decide if he will fight the fairy godmother's mating--or fight for Alice.

This one started out with so much potential but with the handful of small disappointments I’m at odds with how to rate it. Danika the fairy godmother to the bad boys of the fairy tales we know and love must find the discarded men their true loves. This is the overall thought behind the Kingdom series and it is oh so cute. I was pleased to see that it was not a rework of the fairy tale. Marie Hall is giving jilted characters their own fairy tale and happily ever after.

Alice Hu modern day cupcakery master is about to get Her Mad Hatter. Hatter is going to get an Alice, but not the Alice that left him behind in Wonderland so long ago. There is still so much promise there and this book started out with so much gusto then it stumbled along in the last few chapters. In the end I was left needing more of a connection for them. Their love seemed to happen because it was supposed to, not because they wanted it to.

I was also mildly annoyed with the little typos. There many he/she, his/hers mix ups. With this being the final copy that I actually received from a retailer I feel the need to point it out. I’m hoping that since the other books in the series are not free as this one was at the time I downloaded it that they went through more of an editing process. Like I said they were little typos that were quite plentiful. I do have full intentions of continuing the series. I liked the idea behind it.

    I have this on my kindle and like you was hoping for something really good. I’m in the second chapter as we speak.
    If it contains a lot of typos, it may be hard to see past them. Thanks for the review 🙂

    I’ve read two of these and liked them. It does get a bit rushed at the end of this one, but they do get some page time in a later installment. My favorite is Hook.

    Sorry that this didn’t get a higher rating from you, but I understand where you’re coming from. However, I loved this story, and this series. Good review 🙂
