Title: The Lost Slipper
Series: Fairytale Shifter #3
Author: Alexa Riley
Release Date: January 1, 2016
When the alpha falls... He falls hardest of all.
The first time Stone saw Winnie, she was alone in the woods with no memory of where she came from.
With one look, he knew something was different. When she finally came of age and her mating heat kicked in, he realized that she had always been the one.
Sent to live with a strange family, Winnie was forced to deal with the hateful treatment of her stepmother and stepsisters.
Mating the alpha changed that.
But when her past comes back to find her, will the heat last after the clock strikes midnight?
Warning: This shifter fairy tale is meant to be enjoyed by only those who love this kind of adorable stuff. Think you've got what it takes? Then come on in!
Oooh, this book, guys. It's super adorable, super sexy and so, so much fun! Seriously, I’m feeling kinda peppy having just finished it, because it was so flippin’ fun.
I'll keep it brief, since the book itself isn't overly long. It's a novella, and a quick one at that. But it still has a whole lot of cute story going on. Stone and Winnie are just awwwww. They wanted each other for so long—as we learn from the prologue—but are denied by Stone…until the mating heat kicks in.
Then, it's on.
And OMG, it is a BLAST. I loved Winnie—she didn't just roll over for the Alpha. She made him work for it a little. Awesome. I loved Stone—he wasn't taking no for an answer, but he wasn't about to hurt his mate either. Swoon.
This one was a charming (pun intended) twist on Cinderella and has definitely got me salivating for more of these Fairytale Shifters. This one ended a little abruptly, which was a tad disappointing, but I think I was just so into the story, I wanted more, more, more. No shame in that, right?
If you like your romance sweet, sexy, cute and easy, then this is absolutely worth a read. The melding of fairytale and paranormal shifter romance is spot on. I can't wait for more!

I have to say that this is my first ever Shifter book and boy, was it HOT!!
Winnie knew she was different than the rest of the pack, yet her pull for the Alpha in the Pack, Stone, was undeniable from the very day he found her. Winnie is a bear shifter, not a wolf like the rest, and that has her feeling insecure many times.
Stone is the sexy Alpha male who had me wondering if I needed to keep an extra pair of panties halfway through the story. His goal is to protect the pack, and that includes keeping himself away from Winnie even when his body and heart refuse to. When Stone finally gets his shit together and claims Winnie as his, good lawd, was it HOT!! Though there is a bit of mystery, it's something that helps fill in the box in Winnie's past.
This was a fast, deliciously hot read to help warm you up on any cold night!
