David is in love with Tulip, a kind and unusually quiet fairy in his social circle. But everyone knows Tulip doesn’t date humans. David tells himself he is happy to be Tulip’s friend, because he doesn’t believe a fairy could love him and Tulip has never tried to “keep him”—as fairies refer to relationships with humans.
Fairies are drawn to David, describing his great “shine,” but David knows only too well how quickly fairies can forget humans, and thinks he’s destined to be alone. He can’t see his own brilliance or understand how desperately Tulip wants him, even if Tulip believes David can do better.
But exhausted and more than a little tipsy at a Christmas party, David makes his feelings too obvious for Tulip to deny any longer. Because of a past heartbreak involving a human, Tulip is convinced someone as shiny as David could never want a “silly, stupid fairy” in his life. Now, if he wants to keep David, he’ll have to be as brave as his shiny, careful human.
I really enjoyed this book. I haven’t read any Fae books before so it was something new for me to try. The whole thing was just really cute. David and Tulip were very endearing characters. I thought R. Cooper did a good job keeping me interested in the story. While there was some angst it was pretty lighthearted. The interactions between David and Tulip were very sweet. This is the sixth book in this series and I wasn’t lost even though I haven’t read the other five. That being said the book was good enough for me to want to read the previous ones so I will be picking them up. For me there wasn’t a lot of depth in the book, it was simply light and entertaining. R. Cooper did a good job of creating realistic characters(as realistic as you can get with a fairy in the story) that you could connect with.
