22gigantes.com - ~Editor's Pick~Lucci Grimley is indeed alluring—crowned with a mane of long blond hair, and blessed with an enchanting musical talent that draws a brave rescuer to a high tower hidden in the forest. However, this modern-day Rapunzel is a young man, sold as a child to the wealthy and childless Damien Gotham for the price of a fast car and a pile of cash. And Lucci’s heroic prince is William “Prin” Prinzing, a handsome college student and star soccer player, hired to care for the grounds of the lavish Tower Estate. Prin climbs an extension ladder rather than a long golden braid to gain access to Lucci’s second floor bedroom window, ultimately penetrating the secrecy surrounding the cloistered young man. Friendship, and soon romance, blooms. The tower captive eagerly gives his loving innocence to his brave rescuer, which sends the strict and reclusive Gotham into a frenzy of jealous rage. With Prin, Lucci gets a taste of real life, and he wants more. Together, the young men must face Gotham’s ruthlessness and pay the price of liberating Lucci.

Lucas “Lucci” Grimley has long beautiful blond hair By Dawn Honeycutt I was given an ARC for an honest review.Lucas “Lucci” Grimley has long beautiful blond hair, a voice that is sweet, and a musical talent that is enchanting. The town bad guy, Damien Gotham, buys Lucci when he’s twelve and Lucci’s parents happily give him away for a new car and loads of cash. Mr. Gotham locks Lucci away in the tower of his mansion so he is not soiled by the outside world.William Prinzing or Prin as his friends call him grew up in a trailor park with poor parents, but an abundance of love. He’s working his way through college and is very focused and driven. He has a plan for his future and nothing is going to get in his way. Until the day he’s doing the landscaping at Tower Estate and hears the most beautiful sound coming from inside the maze. He calls out to the boy, but receives only a giggle or two and soon sees a person running across the lawn. Prin is so curious that he investigates and soon meets Lucci and is absolutely enchanted. Prin doesn’t understand Lucci’s life, but it doesn’t take him long to realize that Lucci is a prisoner or sorts and Prin wants desperately to rescue him.Their friendship soon turns to romance and then love and both men come to rely on one another. Lucci is so innocent and accepting that Prin is able to admit he’s gay and accept it. In return, Prin shows Lucci life outside of Tower Estate.Ms. Kerick’s books never cease to take me on a rollercoaster ride of emotions. I’ve come to look forward to the ups and downs, twists and turns and I never start a book of hers without a box of tissues. Her words always shoot straight to my heart and hold me captive until I’ve finished the last word. This book is no different. My heart hurt for Lucci while Prin gave me hope. I was left speechless for a while after I finished their story. I hope you’ll take the time to read it. It’s definitely worth it. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. A dark fairy tale, though not as dark and twisted as to damage the leads, which ends in the start of a lighter, happier life. By Roroblu'sMum This is an incredibly well-written dark fairytale type of story that is loosely based on Rapunzel, with hints of others, too.It starts with young Lucci being sold by his birth parents, the price being a better life for them and him becoming the adopted son of Damien Gotham, a man as mysterious as a character based in the fictional city of Gotham, with a rather twisted way of seeing things and doing things. Lucas, as he's been renamed, is a prisoner in a gilded cage, and merely exists, not lives.Will Prin comes into his life as a handyman type employed by Gotham and they become friends, though Lucas is ruled by the fear of discovery. The Rapunzel part of the tale literally exists, with Prin climbing into Lucas's tower room and with Prin longing to free him. It's romantic and sweet, and meshes strangely with real life, so I wasn't entirely sure if the tale was taking place in real life as we know it, or if in an alternate universe - in the end, it didn't matter, as it was done incredibly well and with sweetness, innocence, romance, danger and with love winning out.There are two examples of everything a parent shouldn't be in this, as well as an example of the best kind of parents that any kid should have, and I loved how accepting of Prin's love for Lucca his parents were. I don't think the author was specifically trying to get a message across here, but she created the best possible parents to come into Lucca's life, where I was sure they'd end up.The tale ends with the leads in a good place, and in my romantic head, they're at the start of their HEA. Normally, I'd like my leads in a cemented HEA, together with an epilogue in their lives, some time down the line, but here, it didn't feel appropriate to have one. I liked how the author ended them and let my imagination do the rest.ARC courtesy of the author in return for my reading pleasure. 1 of 1 people found the following review helpful. Dark fairytale...

This man broke his spirit and tried to mold him into the perfect son as far as he was concerned. The boy fought at the beginning but through punishments that no one should have to endure he eventually make him into what he wanted. The boy Lucci, has no outside interaction and did everything his father wanted him to. Until he mets Prin, Prin is the gardener at the estate and is working one day when he comes upon Lucci. They form a bond of friendship but Prin who is straight finds himself falling for Lucci. Lucci is so innocent and doesnt understand the ways of the world. Lucci is about 18 now and so innocent. They fall in love even though if they get caught Lucci father will be mad. It was so cute to see this relationship grown, Mia wrote a dark story about love and what happens when you try to overcome. Prin realizes that life isnt all about money and power, it is about love. Lucci's father finds out what is going on and sends him away. He makes sure Lucci understands what will happen if he comes back to town to him and Prin. Prin tries to find out what is going on but is left in the dark. They both move on as best they could but never forget about each other. A year later Prin hears a song and he swears it is his Lucci so he goes to see him. Needless to say they find each other again and work through their past and fall in love again. I enjoyed reading about these 2 young men and how they really didnt give up on each other. the love they shared was so pure it made me smile. This was a different take on a fairytale and I enjoyed it. ed by Jodi for Alpha Book Club. See all 16 customer reviews...
