Sheep Book Review: Froggy Style by J.A. Kazimer + Giveaway

Froggy Style is the second raucous and irreverent book in the F***ed-Up Fairytale series by J.A. Kazimer puts a new whacky spin on a French-kissing frog looking for his princess!

Jean-Michel La Grenouille has a lot going for him. He's a prince. Handsome. Filthy rich. And definitely charming. But he also spent his first few years as a fly-catching, pond-dwelling frog. All that saved him was the kiss of The One, the girl who saw nobility through his slimy form and fell into True Love. Okay, fine. Technically she was a toddler who tried to eat him, but whatever. The curse broke, and as long as he finds and marries her by his 30th birthday, he's a free man.

Trouble is, he's going to be 30 in ten days, and he's getting some seriously cold-blooded feet. He's pretty sure Princess Sleeping Beauty is The One. But his best man has some villain issues, his in-laws-to-be belong in a really special castle, and a smoking-hot lady biker named Lollie Bliss has him rethinking all this happily-ever-after stuff. 

Oh, and he may have accidentally put out a hit on his blushing bride. Oopsie.

The title alone was enough to perk my interest. I mean, come on it's clever! By the first chapter you know what you've just committed to reading. A classic fairytale with an adult twist, laced with dirty humor and slap stick comedy. It's absolutely over the top and meant to be. Classic tales get revamped all the time but Froggy Style takes a unique twist and makes no apologies with it's explosion of humors dialog. 

I love a good laugh that's done well and pushes the boundaries at times. You get all of that here. Add to that an arrogant Frog Prince and his witty man servant and you're sure to be entertained. I had a strong vibe of the film The Hangover with this one. 

A few plot holes that didn't add up with side characters and while I love a good twist, I wanted something a little less predictable. Add to that a wild goose chase that goes round and round and ends up landing right back where it started, left me a tad underwhelmed. 

Overall, if you're looking for a comedy paced to a classic tale and filled with enough fairy godmother antics to shake a broomstick at, then look no further.

    my prince would have to be willing/able to help with cooking/cleaning, not mind my reading a romance while he watches the action flick or such, caring & be able to have hold a good conversation ;)

  11. My prince would win me over by being nice to any animal that crossed our path. If he wined and dined me he'd get extra credit points for being nice to the waiter and tipping large.

    I love PM350's answer - chop wood with shirt off :)

    3. My Prince(husband)won me over with his patience, 2 years of waiting for me to notice he was there for me and my 3 children by becoming a(albeit)interested friend first.(because I was not looking for a relationship) Then he asked me out for a date and opened doors for me, restaurant doors, car door etc... every time we went out, even my front door at the end of the date. 17 years later he still does this,it might seem old school but I love it. He even taught my sons to do it, he told them it is the best way to show their respect to the girls/women they are dating. He helps with the cooking, the laundry, and even the house cleaning. He was patient enough to live together for 7 yrs before I would commit to getting married! Our 10 yr/17 yr anniversary was in March.

  16. What a wonderful review. I must admit I am starting to get a little tired of the retelling of the fairy tales, but this sounds like there is a little something there with a giggle and pop that just might let me get over the retelling part. I want my prince to have a sense of humor and make me laugh and laugh with me at the absurdities we come across :)

    I don't know. I think being a prince would be endearing in the first place. Maybe also some charm? And, he would have to ask me to the Ball, of course!
    By the way, that book cover is hi-lar-ious.
    Thanks for the giveaway!
