I'll be honest, hearing that this book was based on a series of videos on Tik Tok, I went in with somewhat low expectations (despite the fact that the book description sounded like everything I've ever wanted in a book). I'm happy to say that this book far exceeded my expectations! My only cons are:
* The pacing jumps from a bit slow in the beginning to a bit too fast towards the end
* The magic system is never fully fleshed out
That being said, I didn't find that either of these things really affected my reading experience. I found the characters to be loveable in their own ways. Yes, Evie is a bit ditzy but I found that made her POV entertaining to read! One thing that caught me off guard is that this book ends on a cliffhanger. I didn't realize until I was 90% through the book with no plot resolution in sight that there is no way that this is a standalone book. While I'm glad that I'll (hopefully) be able to read more of Evie and The Villains story, I really wasn't ready to not have everything wrapped up in the end! Overall, I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who likes a good cozy fantasy romance!… (lisätietoja)

I'm over half way through this book and I don't care about the characters. The writing is juvenile and the theme the MCs unadmitted love is repetitive and inane. My main issue though is not knowing the villain's motivation for his vendetta and Evie's absolute lack of curiosity or examining of her own complicity in apparent horrific violence (stepping over severed heads).

This is a super cozy romance! I loved everything about this story. Evie Sage needs a job to support her retired and ailing father, and her younger sister. One day, when running in the woods, she runs into a handsome man with a seemingly pet frog. Well, he turns out to be the Villain, and the frog is a cursed prince who holds up little signs (adorable!). Sage gets hired on the spot, and becomes the assistant. This cozy romantasy mystery has it all — action, adventure, slow burn, and grumpy/sunshine. I really enjoyed this story. It does end on a cliffhanger, and I really hope there’s a book 2!… (lisätietoja)

Chills. Literal chills at this ending!

I've been following Hannah's Assistant to the Villain TikTok series since her first installment, and it's so amazing to finally see it put to paper! The dual POV is tantalizing, the world gives Ella Enchanted vibes, Tati reminds me of Taryn Delanie and I love it, and Evie should be a new shade of red lipstick. I only found one little hiccup with a character's name, and that is the only flaw in this book.

If you are looking for *secret smut*—this is not it. Hannah gave us a safe-for-work (HA!), cozy adult fantasy with a slow-burn romance. And slow-burn it is. I've never mentally screamed "NOW KISS!" so much in my life, but who knew how intimate a hug could be! I loved this book and so should you.… (lisätietoja)
