BOOK REVIEW: Diamonds and Toads by K.E. Saxon


Together, sweet Delilah and wicked Isadora make the perfect woman. But the Perrault family fairy is a troublemaker and imbues diamonds upon one sister and toads upon the other. Now up is down and down is up in a world where no good deed goes unpunished. Leather, blindfolds, and handcuffs purge sweet of all reserve. A few misspoken words of lust gives wicked a whole new meaning.

Once upon a time, there were two sisters, one cursed and one blessed by fairy magic…

Bibbidee-bobbidi-boo, They’re naughty. How about you?


Diamonds and Toads was a wickedly spicy quick read.  This is a short book so I don’t want to give away too much.  There are two parts to the book, the first half deals with a romance between Delilah and Chas; the second book is between Isadora and Sam.  Delilah and Isadora are stepsisters; Chas and Sam have been friends forever so the stories are well intertwined.  Delilah and Isadora have lived in the shadow (and fear) of their stepmom/mom, who’s just downright evil and selfish and only concerned about how high she can get on the social climbing ladder.  In different scenarios Delilah and Isadora encounter a fairy; but who if either will be blessed?   Will the sister’s dreams of finding Mr. Perfect and wealth come true?  For such a short book, K.E. Saxon has packed a lot of details on the backgrounds of her characters and their stories.   My favorite characters were Delilah and Sam.  Who were both charming with a dash of sexy wickedness.   The fairy scenes were very comical and I enjoyed her wit. In one scene she appeared as Endora from Bewitched which I found hilarious.  I loved watching Bewitched while growing up.  I felt the book really touched on peoples character and how to not judge a book by it’s cover so to speak.  There’s a few steamy sex scenes and some have BDSM involved.

Blush factor is 5 out of 5. Not a book for anyone under age 18.

K.E. Saxon is a third-generation Texan and has been a lover of romance fiction since her first (sneaked) read of her older sister’s copy of “The Flame and the Flower” by Kathleen E. Woodiwiss. She is a member of the West Houston Chapter of Romance Writer’s of America and is a devoted subscriber to the Romance Divas online forum. She has two cats, a 24-year-old cockatiel, a funny, supportive husband, and a garden that’s been fried by the recent drought. When she isn’t in her writer’s cave writing, you can find her puttering in her organic vegetable garden or in her kitchen trying out a new recipe. An animal (and bug) lover since before she could speak, she made pets of all kinds of critters when she was a kid growing up. Her mother even swears that she made a pet of a cockroach one time (but K.E. doesn’t believe her). She likes to write funny, sexy romances.
