Review – Once Upon a Broken Heart by: Stephanie Garber

How far would you go for happily ever after?

For as long as she can remember, Evangeline Fox has believed in true love and happy endings . . . until she learns that the love of her life will marry another.

Desperate to stop the wedding and to heal her wounded heart, Evangeline strikes a deal with the charismatic but wicked Prince of Hearts. In exchange for his help, he asks for three kisses, to be given at the time and place of his choosing.

But after Evangeline’s first promised kiss, she learns that bargaining with an immortal is a dangerous game—and that the Prince of Hearts wants far more from her than she’d pledged. He has plans for Evangeline, plans that will either end in the greatest happily ever after or the most exquisite tragedy. . . .

“The fates weren’t dangerous because they were evil; the Fates were dangerous because they couldn’t tell the difference between evil and good.”

Where do I even start with this beautifully twisted fairy tale? The writing is magnificent and there are gorgeous details with perfectly spun world building. Once Upon a Broken Heart is absolutely a book worth grabbing.

With the beginning, I will say I feel like the beginning events happen all too quickly. However, man oh man do I ship Jacks + Little Fox so hard. I’m really hoping they are end game. Jacks is just something else. I absolutely adore his hard and dark demeanor. I wouldn’t quite say he’s brooding because he knows who he is and what he wants.

With our side characters, I’m hoping we see more of chaos and LaLa in the future for sure.

“Heroes don’t get happy endings. They give them to other people. Is that what you really want?”

Overall, the story is effortlessly spun. You think you have ideas about something then it’s completely turned around. Nothing is quite clear until the very end and even then we’re left with questions making me scream for the next book. Absolutely worth a pick up!
