Goodreads synopsis:

Once Upon a Broken Heart

by Stephanie Garber 

How far would you go for happily ever after?

For as long as she can remember, Evangeline Fox has believed in true love and happy endings…until she learns that the love of her life will marry another.

Desperate to stop the wedding and to heal her wounded heart, Evangeline strikes a deal with the charismatic but wicked Prince of Hearts. In exchange for his help, he asks for three kisses, to be given at the time and place of his choosing.

But after Evangeline’s first promised kiss, she learns that bargaining with an immortal is a dangerous game—and that the Prince of Hearts wants far more from her than she’d pledged. He has plans for Evangeline, plans that will either end in the greatest happily ever after or the most exquisite tragedy….

Final Thoughts:

  • This was a pretty disappointing box to be honest. Most of the bookish items weren’t anything too exciting.
  • However, the trinket dish might be the only redeeming item that I actually love and will use (I was actually looking to buy a trinket dish, so it was a nice surprise to find this in the box)
  • The fact that there’s a missing item automatically deducts a point. I was told that most UK subscribers have missed out on the item as well. I was emailed and told that the item should arrive with the December box.
  • I don’t really like paper items in box subscription boxes in general, things like art prints or postcards, so the postcard was practically useless to me.
  • The blanket is nice. Made of good quality, soft material. I like it and the print is cool.
  • This month’s exclusive edition book is beautiful— probably one of the prettiest books on my bookshelves. The sprayed edges, the embossing, the cover design– *chef’s kiss*

Final Rating: 5/10
