Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The third installment in the Once Upon a Con series, following The Princess and the Fangirl: A Geekerella Fairy Tale (2019), puts a humorous twist on "Beauty and the Beast." Magnet-for-trouble and heartthrob villain in the new sf Starfield movie Vance Reigns is dropped in the middle of nowhere after some bad publicity. His path crosses that of Rosie Thorne, who is daydreaming about the mysterious cosplayer she met at ExcelsiCon but also still reeling from her mother's death. When Rosie accidentally damages a rare novel, she agrees to organize the library in the mansion where Vance is staying to pay off the debt. The problem is, well, Vance is rather beastly in manner. Nonbinary and bi characters who aren't overly flamboyant, two award-worthy best friends sharing in that specialness that is geeking out in a library with your favorite books . . . what's not to adore? Of note are definitely the character arcs, the slow-burning romance, and the relatable fear of disappointing the people who love us. This rom-com told in alternating viewpoints is poised to steal any book geek's heart."
