What a kinky, twisted mind this woman has, I think I’m developing a bit of a girl crush (again lol)
This book gives you past and present, giving you a look at what happened to shape the people Leah (Gretel) and Lucas (Hansel) are today.
Ten years ago ….
Leah, the gorgeous blond hair, blue eyed beauty, who’s life was near perfect. Great parents, amazing sisters, she was enjoying being a teen, having fun with friends and being carefree. That’s until Mother Goose ripped her from the world she knew, changed her name and left her alone in her new room in The House.
But she wasn’t truly alone, Mother Goose has been filling up every other room, collecting characters to try and make her storybook house complete. And next to her room housed her “Brother,” Hansel.
Hansel has been in The House for too many years to remember, he’s been listening to Gretel cry continuously for days, and needed a way to connect with her, need to make her feel at ease with him. But he has his own demons.
Mother Goose only lets him out of his room while everyone else is kept locked up, but when he returns he’s more withdrawn than the time before, until he comes back to Gretel, with blood stained hands.
They are free.
Present day ….
The Enchanted Forest, that’s where Leah has been dragged by her sister, Lana, who is getting married and wants one last hoorah at a bdsm sex club before she gets married.
Leah is unsure of all this, after all it is exactly like she saw in The House, but even as her anxiety peeks, she follows along until she is facing the stage, until she was facing Her Hansel.
Hansel, who goes by few names, is looking for his next private submissive, but he is very selective.
Natural blond hair, blue eyes, 5’1 – 5’5, wide hips and a nice plump ass. No exceptions.
While he may be trying to forget his time at The House, he is certainly trying to keep His Gretel fresh in his mind by recreating her in every submissive that comes his way.
Leah wants him, craves him and it’s clear to her that he still thinks of her, after all, his stage was her room, the blond was Her. When she sees an opening as his submissive, she has to try …
My only issue would be, Leah, Lana, Laura, Lucas, Leda, Luna …. There’s so many other names out there where they didn’t all have to be L’s.
Oh and “lasdjlkdfjl” and “alksjdfd”…. What the fuck?
If you don’t like cliffys, I suggest grabbing book 2 before you start 😉

Woah, so the series is over, and damn what a ride! I have laughed so hard I thought I was going to pee myself, ugly cried until I looked like a frog and had me swooning for the pair of them.
I can not express how much I Love this series and Vaughn and Grace. I’m seriously at a loss of what to say about this one, it really is that damn perfect!

Social Media Series;
Individual rating with each review.
If you made the mistake of thinking this was just another little series based on a egotistical rich A-hole dominating a poor little weak submissive, then you seriously need to pick it up and start again. This is in a league of its own!
Social Media plays havoc on your emotions, often leaving you not too sure on if you want to cry, laugh, swoon or bitch slap someone 😉
Yes, you have the rich movie star and the poor girl who fantasises about said movie star, but this series is so much more.
Vaughn shows that he isn’t just the movie star who used woman as a play thing and tosses them aside once he is finished. He shows he has another side, the vulnerable man, who loves his family, yet who is a bit of a loner who doesn’t have anyone that he can truly trust. He is a man who is willing to fight for what he wants, for what he needs and when he meets Grace, makes no apologies for any of what he does to make her his.
Grace, yes she is the poor girl who has a million things to hide, but this woman is far from weak. The fierce, sassy woman has rebuilt her life, and a damn good life at that, but when she meets her celebrity crush, that all changes, she finds herself digging her heels in, proving that she is not just his submissive plaything, but his equal. But when her life is torn upside down and inside out, she struggles to show what it truly means to survive her past and build her future.
All in all, this is a series that I am so glad I had the chance to read, Vaughn and Grace will stay with me forever.
