    One thought on “Rise”

    1. ~4.5 I-fucking-loved-this-book stars~This is the kind of fairy tale your parents told you when you were a child, the kind with ogres, villains, and heroes; the kind where the hero finds True Love; and maybe there's even a kiss. So, yes, this is that kind of fairy tale. But with sex. LOTS of dirty, grunting, sweaty sex between Jack of the flaming red hair and Rion the not-so-giant "giant" who has to protect his castle from Outsiders below. This is very much a twist on Jack and the Beanstock, a st [...]

    2. I gotta admit I was skeptical about this one. I seldom read fantasy, but this book had two things in it's favor: a GINGER(!) and the authors. I'm glad I took a chance because this was such a clever take on Jack and the Bean Stalk. This novella had it all. *Heartbreak*Mystery*Hot sex*Romance*MagicMy only complaint is that (for purely selfish reasons) I wish it had been longer. Definitely recommend this one- don't be put off by the fact that's it's based on a fairy tale cause you'll be missing out [...]

    3. I really do love Fairy Tales, I always have. This is a great interpretation of Jack and the Beanstalk, with some hot as shit, enemies to lovers, boy on boy lovin'. Good stuff.

    4. This hurt my feelings. A lot.I'm not saying that's a bad thing but Jack's horrible life and past made me sad over and over and over again. And because of that sad life, the loneliness, the ostracism - it all drives him to desperate measures, hoping to find treasure high in the sky.This is an entirely ingenious new take on the classic fairy tale, and I was thoroughly entertained. Andrews has yet to fail in bringing the emotional angst and the smexy smex. So despite my painful fretting throughout [...]

    5. I liked it.It actually made me really sad at times. How Jack was ostracised and Rion's isolation was kind of heart breaking. The lapsed Catholic in me also picked up up on, what felt like, a lot religious undertones but I might just be reading too much into it. Rion's life in particular felt very religious orderish and the people being afraid of the 'giant in the sky'? But again I might be just reading too much into it and 'Jack and Beanstalk' always felt a bit that way anyway!! I thought that t [...]

    6. 4 StarsI’ve always been a fan of the classic tale of Jack and the Beanstalk, and out of some warped sense of protectiveness, I went into this story with my judgy pants on. I often find that modern retellings of classic fairy tales can often be hit or miss for me as a reader. However, in this particular instance, the creative liberties taken here and the original spark evident in the new storytelling, worked wonders for me. I’ve always considered Jack and the Beanstalk to be somewhat a coming [...]

    7. OMGDid I ever imagine Jack could fall in love with the giant and live happily ever after when I first read the book.Jack and the Beanstalk original fairytale.Did I like Jack falling in love with the Giant.I am all grown up now and can handle sex too.So you see no reason to not love this story.Simple,short,sweet story.

    8. Keira Andrews is making it into my list of wonderful authors!I loved this story so much.The writing was so good, that I could practically taste, both Jack's and Rion's loneliness and sadness.It is a sweet yet melancholic fairy tale, and it reminded me a bit of one of Kim Fielding's worlds (that I like!)Wonderful sweet and sexy short!

    9. I loved the first collaboration of these authors (book #1 of the Tempting Tales, Earthly Desires) that I couldn't wait to see the next story in this series. This one was inspired by Jack and the Beanstalk.As an erotic fairytale, this one did offer a numerous sex scenes. But I thought the story "outside the bedroom" was quite well-written. Both men were trapped in their situation: Jack was poor and he was entrapped to live with his mother who didn't like him and the rest of the town who shunned h [...]

    10. This story is pure warm fuzzies. Such a clever, and completely endearing take on the Jack and the Beanstalk Fairy Tale. I will come back to this one for sure. I LOVED IT. I hope these ladies team up again for more Gay fairy tales!!

    11. 3.5 StarsA rather porny take on a classic fairy tale. As as much plot as the original tale, but I kind of figured that going in. The bad guys get their comeuppance and the good guys live happily ever after and fuck a lot. A good time was had by all. Well not so much for the bad guys.

    12. Delightful fairy tale!! Loved that the two lonely souls -- Rion, the "Giant" and Jack -- found each other. It was a little sweet and a little sexy combined!

    13. Absolutely loved it! A thoroughly captivating read with solid writing from front to back, and language that is consistent and befits a fairytale. The cover is beautiful too and really captures the looks and spirit of Jack. However, the story is not only told from his perspective but also from Rion's, who is the other main character. Ginger Jack is an outcast in the village he lives in, shunned because of his fiery locks that can only come from the devil. He lives with his mother who can't stand [...]

    14. I really enjoyed this fairy tale. Rion and Jack were perfect for each other and I definitely believe in their HEA.

    15. Delightful fairy tale of Jack (of the beanstalk variety) and Rion (the supposed giant) who both find what they want most - someone to love and love them back. Really enjoyed it.

    16. Excellent , excellent , excellent !!From beginning to end this was fabulous!Creat MM fairy tale.Read it, is great.

    17. A sweet alternate telling of the classic Jack & The Beanstalk.Poor Jack is flame haired and believed cursed for it. Apparently the townsfolk take the whole "gingers have no soul" thing pretty seriously.It doesn't help that he's gay, and believes that his ginger locks, and the fact he wants a knight more than a maiden fair, is confirmation that he's the devil's spawn.When Jack's only friend (his cow) is sold by his mother, without his permission, he tries to get her back and strikes a deal to [...]

    18. I really enjoyed this latest Tempting Tales offering. Jack and Rion were great characters, two very different, nuanced men, each in his own way trapped in his circumstances. As with the first Tempting Tales book, Earthly Desires, I think what I found most compelling was the history behind the story. Leta and Keira have a way of exploring how the characters became who they are and how their circumstances evolved that is just endlessly fascinating to me. They also construct one situation which I a [...]

    19. I received an ARC from the author in exchange for a fair Review.Rise is a same sex version of Jack and the Beanstalk. When I first saw it listed I thought "what a brilliant idea!" Well Keira Andrews delivers a first rate story. I liked how the simplicity with which she told this talet so simple it was for children but he had a resemblance in the entire feeling of pardon the pun "Fairytale." ;)The Valley people are raised to fear the Giant yet relish his riches, The Giant was raised with hate and [...]

    20. What a lovely little fairy tale!! I don't remember all of the specifics of the original, but I love what they did in this, with the mythology and characters. With Inga and Adair (that bastard!) and Rion. I wanted to snuggle the hell out of Jack and his red hair.The story was sweet, sexy, and sometimes sad. There were a few twists and turns that kept me on the edge of my treadmill, which I hadn't really anticipated. Keira Andrews always does a great job balancing angst and everything else, and I' [...]
