“If you're like me, and can't just quit a series even though it's terrible, then I suggest not ever picking up the first book of this series. This book so far was the worst, it's anti climatic, characters lack depth and progression, too repetitive, and just cringing at times. ”Melissa wrote this review Wednesday, October 5, 2011.

“Once again Shanna Swendson has quenched my thirst for a fun flirty read! Damsel Under Stress is just as good as its predecessors. In the third installment of the series, there is more romantic drama/turmoil in Katie and Owen's newly burgeoning relationship. This gives the novel a more serious and substantial plot than the previous two and lends a certain atmospheric quality to the story, turning an otherwise light and fluffy read into a meaningful book. Katie and Owen have always faced adversity (mostly in the form of magic,) but in Damsel Under Stress we find that along with a deepening relationship, there are other obstacles to overcome.
Damsel Under Stress leaves the reader unsure of an ultimate happy ending. From the way events transpire in book 3, there is no telling what will happen to Katie in book 4. Despite feeling a bit cheated by the unhappy ending in Damsel Under Stress, I will continue on to see just what will happen. Shanna Swendson has created characters that I truly care about - I won't give up on them.”

“This series is absolutely fabulous. The reason this one is rated down a star is that there was a particular plot development I was kind of mad about. Nevertheless this series is the best chick lit I have ever read.”Christina F wrote this review Monday, June 15, 2009. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I rated this a bit lower because....one would think (if having "common sense")...that if there is something magical hinky going on in your life...and you work in a place where there is a power struggle between good & evil....that you just might tell someone about it rather than ignoring the threats and constantly walking into traps set by the bad guys! Sheesh! So I guess it says I've gotten tired of the heroine being a ninny!
Other than that....it was an easy and fun read.....with a Fairy Godmother, dragons , boyfriend's parents, and a pair of comical gargoyles as chauffeurs in the mix. The gargoyles had me laughing...I'd like to see more of them.
