Free Agent by J.C. Nelson
Grimm Agency #1

When it comes to crafting happily-ever-afters, the Agency is the best in the land of Kingdom. The Fairy Godfather Grimm can solve any problem—from eliminating imps to finding prince charming—as long as you can pay the price…

Working for Grimm isn’t Marissa Locks’s dream job. But when your parents trade you to a Fairy Godfather for a miracle, you don’t have many career options. To pay off her parents’ debt and earn her freedom, Marissa must do whatever Grimm asks, no matter what fairy-tale fiasco she’s called on to deal with.

Setting up a second-rate princess with a first-class prince is just another day at the office. But when the matchmaking goes wrong, Marissa and Grimm find themselves in a bigger magical muddle than ever before. Not only has the prince gone missing, but the Fae are gearing up to attack Kingdom, and a new Fairy Godmother is sniffing around Grimm’s turf, threatening Marissa with the one thing she can’t resist: her heart’s wishes.

Now Marissa will have to take on Fairies, Fae, dragons, and princesses to save the realm—or give up any hope of ever getting her happy ending…

There are two things that really drive a really good read for me for me, the characters and the romance. While the latter was only a small part of this book, I still connected. That being said, Marissa stole the show for me. I simply adored her character. She's so tough yet vulnerable at the same time. She's quirky and stands up for what she believes in no matter the odds it seems. At first it seems like life has dealt her a raw deal, but as time went on, I got the feeling there was a lot more going on than first met the eye. I'm looking forward to seeing more from Marissa in future.

I'll be honest that books that lie on the more fantasy side of Urban Fantasy can be rather hit or miss for me. I just find all the complicated rules can get a bit overwhelming. So while the blurb of this one intrigued me enough to pick it up, I did so with a bit of trepidation. I'm happy to say that FREE AGENT landed on the "hit" side. Sure there was a bit of a learning curve to the world and the Kingdom sections were a bit confusing, but overall this was a pretty interesting read. The plot moved quickly and the pacing was steady keeping me well entertained, and the characters, specifically Marissa were fantastic. So, if you are looking for a good read you'll want to check out FREE AGENT.
