Since the death of his father, Trick Grigsby has fought to keep his head above water. Following in his father’s footsteps as a talented architect, he hopes to work his way up at the firm. Unfortunately, the company’s new owner barely resembles the man who was once Trick’s father’s best friend. Trick’s days are filled with drudgery and cruel remarks from the man who was supposed to be his mentor—along with his two sons, whose only jobs seem to be making Trick’s life miserable.
But all that is about to change.
Edwin Goodmaker struggled through his fairy godparent curriculum, but his mother—the reigning Fairy Queen—has a simple solution: Edwin will go to New York City and get some practical experience. When he meets Trick, Edwin knows he’s found a worthy charge, and he’s sure he can help Trick achieve all of his heart’s desires. Edwin falls for Trick, but with everything standing in their way, a fairy-tale ending might remain nothing more than a dream.
If you are looking for something sweet, fluffy and will make your heart as gooey as a warm sugar cookie, look no farther than His Fairy Godfather written by Cate Ashwood and Nico Jaye. I can't begin to tell you how much I adored this book! I pretty much started smiling from the first page and didn't stop until I got to the end ... and that happy, feel good feeling stayed with me long after, too. I'm telling y'all, this book could be one of those holiday movies that you wait and wait all year for then watch pretty much non-stop all the way until January. Then get sad you have to wait another year until it comes on again. That is if you don't save it on your DVR to pull out in July or something.
Edwin Goodmaker is a fairy godfather ... in training. The training part is important you see because while Edwin has mastered some of his necessary duties, there are a few he needs some work on. So, what's a Fairy Queen to do but to send Edwin, who just so happens to be her son, to New York City (by way of Kansas. On a bus no less!) to be among the mortals. And wouldn't you know, his very first day there he stumbles across, quite literally, none other than Trick (ugh, this name, but really, it fits and I got used to it) Grigsby. Trick needs a fairy godfather like no one else. This poor guy, verbally abused by his evil boss and his two worthless sons, Trick trudges through every day. He's cynical and jaded but he has a heart of gold buried beneath all the crap of his life. So when he and Edwin cross paths, Edwin knows that he's meant to help Trick achieve all his hearts desires.
What follows is an adorable friendship full of Edwin's absolute delight and wonder in the mortal world and Trick's belief that there is good out there, especially if you're worthy. Or happen to have your very own fairy godfather. Not sure many people kiss have sexy times with THEIR fairy godfathers but Edwin and Trick do. And it's sweet and hot. And the two of them together as Edwin shows Trick there are good things for him and Trick shows Edwin things like cotton candy and pizza are just too delightful for words. This book is all the things a fun holiday story should be. Magical, whimsical, and it will leave your heart full and with a smile on your face. Don't let this one pass you by people!! You'll be so sorry if you did!
