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.

If ever there was a time for it to be used this is it because oh-my-effing-g that was one insanely unique ride. Her Mad Hatter. I don't even know where to start but Hall definitely blew my mind just a little bit. And I loved it.

In an absolutely brilliant twist on fairy tales the villains become... the heroes. Everything you ever thought you knew about fairy tales-- thank again because damn bad boys never looked so fucking good as a quirky fairy godmother sets out to save her charges one naughty misunderstood hunk of villain at a time. Starting with the Mad Hatter who desperately needs 'his Alice' to bring him back from the edge of madness.

I really liked the Mad Hatter and Alice. Hall did an incredible job of really letting him walk the line of sanity. He's been trying to find the right Alice for...ages--but they're never the right one and it's really left him hopeless and destroyed. Gah I just wanted to hug his crazy ass and tell him it would be okay. And Alice. She's always been drawn to the Mad Hatter and is pretty overwhelmed with her situation and attraction but she's sweet, caring and with some encouragement determined to save him. My only real complaint is that the actual romance was a little light. They're destined mates so it did work overall and the connection was there but personally I would have loved just a little more of them as a couple--especially once he's not quite so...wacked out insane.

Things get pretty steamy sexy which is a bit of a mind fuck really because, hello, the fairy tales of your childhood are screwing like bunnies, giving blow jobs and saying cock. LOL Nicely written but, yeah, ::snort:: mind scrambler. ;)

The world is really what got me and absolutely wow'd me. Completely. Hall really embraced the hell out of it. And introduced the world via the bad boy's fairy godmother in a way that it was seemlessly easy to fall int and know what was going on with the series without missing a beat. And the world of the Mad Hatter? His world was crazy, vibrant, unique and definitely pulled me right into it's madness. I couldn't get enough and wanted to see what would happen next or what was around the next corner. I had a few good chuckles, a couple omg's and just really loved the experience of being in Wonderland.
Flowers, too many different varieties to count, were looking at her.

Looking at her!

She yelped.

They blinked.
Hall really left me reeling with Her Mad Hatter. I loved pretty much everything about this one. The story, the characters, the writing that truly made you feel just a little bit mad with the insanity of it all and the absolutely stunning concept that still has me sitting here going sweet Lord that was fucking brilliant! I am definitely a fan and can't wait to meet the other bad boys and see the twists and turns of their stories. If you love fairy tales and unique adaptations, yeah, you gotta check this one out.
