D.K. Marie’s romance Fairy Tale Lies: An Opposites Attract Novel features a story of high versus lower social class. Greta Meier is spending her summer as an intern at her father’s company, Swift Financial. While sitting in on a new client meeting, she is stunned to encounter Jacob Grimm, the owner of Rework. Greta knows Jacob from a whirlwind afternoon of passion - when he was a delivery man for another company. Jacob remembers Greta, and how she had shoved him out the door after they had spent the afternoon in her mother’s guest house. Now they have to work together and neither can deny the chemistry between them. Jacob convinces Greta to date him, but her ex-fiancé Blake is determined to win her back. Blake catches Greta and Jacob outside and notices something that could cost Jacob everything.
I could understand the dilemma of the social status differences that D.K. Marie explores. Everything about Greta speaks of a life of riches. For instance, how many people have cooks, designer clothes, and country club memberships? Only people who have exorbitant amounts of money. Blake attempts to use this to show Jacob as being beneath Greta socially. Jacob has no qualms about confronting people who feel superior to him. His pride comes into play when Greta attempts to hide their relationship from her family. The transitions between Jacob's and Greta’s viewpoints are effortless. The supporting characters helped in bringing out the differences in the couple. Can a relationship survive outside of society's social standards? Fairy Tale Lies tackles this question and will appeal to readers who enjoy romances with a realistic touch.
