Once Upon A (Stolen) Time by Samreen Ahsan.

Blurb…

2015…
All her life, Myra Farrow has been obsessed with medieval castles—and the kings and princes who once inhabited them. Now, wealthy videogame designer Steve Bernard wants her to model for a princess character in his new game. Myra can’t resist his offer, especially when she learns that Steve plans to film inside the mysterious Hue Castle—a cursed, barren, colorless place forbidden to visitors for centuries. But unknown to Myra, her soul is bound to Hue Castle by blood and sorcery. When she enters its doors, she awakens dark powers that will reach through time—stealing her past, torturing her present, and rewriting her future.

1415…
Edward Hue, the last of the Hue royal bloodline, has never stood in the sunshine or held a living flower. Cursed from birth to live in darkness and bring death to all he touches, he is at the mercy of his cruel, tyrannical father, who will not rest until he shatters Edward’s soul and makes his son into a diabolical copy of himself. Edward’s one hope is the mysterious woman who haunts his dreams—who will either break his curse and bring him out of the darkness, or destroy him utterly.

For Myra and Edward, past and future collide in a tale of love, obsession, betrayal, and the hope for redemption.

 

My Review…

Who knew I would fall madly in love with this book? I actually can’t express what I’m feeling right now into words but I will say this, I WANT MORE!!
To relive history in 1425 in Edwards POV was very interesting and I couldn’t get enough. Myra’s POV in 2015 made things a little easier to read and connect with since I share the same passions as her with the love of castle and medieval era. A little part of me is sad now that the story is ended.. (For now)..

Steve, Tyler and Myra.

“So if this place has been vacant for six centuries, is there any chance we’ll see ghosts?” Steve asked.“Boo…! Tyler suddenly turned around and raised his arms at me.
I jerked back, startled. “Shit, Tyler! That’s not funny.”

Tyler to Myra.

Although they were both genuinely interested in each other, I still felt awkward with the twi good-looking men I’d just met two days ago.“We’re ere because of you, Myra – not on some couple’s retreat.”

Myra about Steve.

Steve was the first one to take out his phone. My phone was with my mother. He took a selfie of us together. Everyone started laughing when he did that. 

The song that suits this book is ‘Make Me… (feat. G-eazy) Britney Spears. 

I rate this book 5 stars.
