Hook's Pan by Marie Hall

Publisher Description

Trishelle Page has known pain in her life, but instead of it making her weak, she's stronger. Confident. That is until the day a fairy named Danika kidnaps her during her starring role in Peter Pan's play and tells her not only do fairy tales exist, but that she's the soul mate of the pirate they call Hook, making her question everything she ever thought she knew. Captain James Hook is a man at the end of his rope. He's not the villainous bastard tales have made him out to be. So when the curvaceous blonde drops literally at his feet, he aims to prove it to her. If only to get her into his bed. What neither one knows is that fate and magic are conspiring and they can deny the attraction all they want but their happily ever after is already written, it's just a matter of getting there. 

Review

Marie Hall has taken a character that we all know as the bad guy and made him the hero. Bad boy lovers around the world unite with me and say "Thanks!" to Marie. Hook's Pan has a really cute premise but it is far from being a cute read. Ms. Hall managed to sneak in real depth with the tragedies her H/h have suffered. Both Hook and Trishelle have brutally lost a loved one. This gives them common ground, a place to build on when they are resistant to the matchmaking of a certain fairy godmother. I felt bad for Trishelle at first, I understand why she was brought to Hook, but I wanted him to love Trishelle for herself and not because of who she might have been. That will make sense once you read the book. I don't want to spoil. 

I enjoyed Hook's Pan. Readers of the books before this one will enjoy seeing old friends, but you can read it as a stand alone. I bought Betty/Gerard's story and Alice/Mad Hatter's story this morning.
