Hansel Part 4 by Ella James Review + Giveaway

Hansel #4 by Ella James


They were captives who shared a wall, and cut a hole in it so they could hold each other's hands. Until he killed their captor, Mother. Then he disappeared, and as the world swooped in to save the Children locked away in Mother's house, the girl called Gretel became...lost. No breadcrumbs.

Finding Hansel, years later, is the shock of Leah McKenzie's adult life. Finding out how far she'll go for him - that's no surprise.

Leah's given Hansel - Lucas, he says it is - every piece of herself. And he's been both cruel and kind.

What they share is dangerous.
What they feel is dark.
Their history is twisted.
Their hearts already broken.
And that's before the secrets are revealed.



 My pulse quickens as I see a long lump on the bed farthest from where I’m standing.
For a moment, I think I hear him talking in his sleep.  
For a moment, I think of sliding under the covers with him, just to enjoy the irony. We’re sleeping with a wall between us tonight, but instead of a hole he sawed, there’s a door he left propped open. For once, we can actually reach each other.
But he said he didn’t want your company.
I exercise my will power and tip-toe slowly around the hotel bed, so I’m standing right beside his sleeping form.
At least I think he’s sleeping.
His cheek is pressed against the pillow, and his unhurt hand is curled into a fist up near his chin.
I’m fighting the urge to touch him, battling the forbidden desire to lean down close enough so I can brush my lips over his damp hair. From where I’m standing, I can smell the shampoo he used. It’s fruity; sweet. It’s so at odds with his big, rugged body. As if to make me want him more, he shifts his hips a little, and the sheet covering his chest slips down, revealing huge shoulders, smooth, hard pecs, and the upper portion of his incredible abs.
Oh my.
That’s a lot of muscle there.
I take a step back, feeling exhilarated because he’s beautiful, and I’m a bad, bad girl for sneaking in to watch him sleep.
That’s when his hand shoots out and grabs my wrist.
I let out a little cry as he jerks me toward the bed. Then he’s sitting up. His hands close around my waist and I’m dragged atop his sheet-covered lap. He strokes up from my hips, over my sides, and over my bare shoulders, tickling my neck before he gets a firm grip on my face.  
“What did I tell you,” he hisses, “about coming into my room?”


This is the fourth and final installment in the Hansel Erotic Fairytale novella series. This series is as far from a fairy tale than anything. The story is intense, dark, raw, and passionate I started to read book four and I was kind of lost. So I started on book one and let me just say, I devoured this series! I stayed up late reading this amazing series and I still crave for more. Let's start off with a review of all four books. The story is of Hansel (Luke) and Gretel (Leah) and takes over a period of ten years through the use of flashbacks.  The book is told in dual point of view and you get to see what happened in the lives of Luke and Leah, how they met, the time they spent with Mother, and how they are doing ten years from the time with Mother. Let's talk about Mother for second, she had a house that she would keep children, like a foster parent. Luke and Leah were held captivate by her and they relied on each other to find comfort.  Mother named her children, fairy tale names.  Hence, the name of where Hansel and Gretel came into play.

The final installment of Hansel that gives us the completion of the series.  Ella James keeps the readers engaged with this series.  The cliffhangers in each book keep you wondering and wanting more! I am so glad I was able to enjoy all four books in one setting! I am looking forward to reading more from this author and also checking out the past Erotic Fairytale series!
