Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for a fair and honest review.
"Sara had always been careful.
She never spoke of magic, never associated with those suspected of handling magic, never thought of magic, and never, ever, let anyone see her mark. After all, the last thing she wanted was to end up missing, like her father and brother.
Then, a silver elf pushed his way into Sara's dream, and her life became anything but ordinary."

My Thoughts:

This is the kind of book that you can’t really think too hard about. Don’t question things too much, just sit back and enjoy the ride. If you can do that, then you will thoroughly enjoy this one. It is quick and fun and really just a fairy tale. I had no trouble getting lost in this one.

I am not entirely sure why, but when I picked this up I thought it was a YA book. So color me surprised when chapter one treats us to some schmexy. I’m not complaining, it just caught me by surprise a bit. Once I adjusted my mindset from YA to adult, I was ready to go. With that being said though, I don’t want to give the impression that this book is overly explicit, because it’s not. It is tasteful and the romance scenes were done nicely. They didn’t overpower the story, just added to it. 

Our hero Micah is literally perfect in every single way. He is the embodiment of a perfect swoony, overly cheesy, but truly romantic hero and I loved every second of it. Every now and then it is nice to get lost in a fictional character that would never ever exist in the real world because that is what books are for. Sure realistic is nice, but sometimes I want to read about what simply cannot be. The romance between Micah and Sara was so incredibly sweet and just *sigh*. Be warned though, it is complete and total insta love. Personally, I eat that sappy stuff up, but I know that bothers some. I just really enjoy nonrealistic sappy romances every now and then. Plus, this book delivers a fairy prince… A FAIRY PRINCE. It was like all my romantic dreams rolled up into one great read.

As for the plot, it was engaging albeit a bit predictable at times. But again, that really didn’t bother me because I just sat back and enjoyed the ride. It really is just a fun story and pretty much a fairy tale for adults to enjoy. 

All in all, Copper Girl is a great read if you are looking for something fun, romantic, and swoony.

  2. Copper Girl does sounds like a book to just sit back and lose myself in the fantasy, Teresa. I agree with you about reading being an escape...I don't always want realistic. And insta-love...yeah, also fantasy but it's part of the escape, so I don't mind it. :) Plus, Micah sounds like a fabulous escape! ;) Thanks for sharing a lovely review. I'm adding it to my TBR.

  3. I love this review! I happen to like an easy to fall into book, one that doesn't require much thought. And I typically don't mind insta-love, as long as the author makes me believe it. This cover is seriously gorgeous. Great review, Teresa!
