    1 thought on “Golden Stair”

    1. Oh Adonis I knew your story would rock my world and it certainly did with all your smarta** remarks, "I'm the one lying here like a roasted boar," he said lightly. "It seems the slightest bit odd that you are the one who seems upset?" I mean his mouth is just something else, "as much as I would enjoy having you in my arms, warm and willing," he murmured, his voice a hot caress of warm silk on bare skin, "that is not what I offered you just now. I am asking you if you would let me kiss you - just [...]

    2. I received this book in exchange for an honest review (LoP or Lovers of Paranormal)Again another book I loved. I think I even liked this book more than the other 2 in the series, probably because I felt there was a real sense of threat. This time the story is based around Rapunzel which is in my opinion a much better story to retell as it is one that doesn’t immediately spring to mind. It is not a story which has been done and redone past the point of recognition.The main characters ivy and Ad [...]

    3. Despite all the excitement finishing book 2, One Bite, I was wondering what fairy tale the author would choose for book 3. I mean, she’d already hit the two biggest – Cinderella and Snow White – so what would come next? The Golden Stair does not disappoint, it’s Rapunzel as you’ve never seen it before. The prince is more smokin’ hot than charming – not to mention skilled – and the heroine is still innocent but without being stupid.Adonis is an incubus who lives on the sexual ener [...]

    4. New cover looks really nice :)I loved the story, Adonis was the least likeable of the 5 Princes and I was hopeful but not optimistic that his story could be turned into a good one but I am pleased to report that this was a great story based on the Rapunzel fable that you heard as a child, but this is NOT that children's tale.Adonis and Ivy were such a seeming mismatch at the start but the author wove an excellent story with an innocent girl and a hedonistic prince without it being turned into an [...]

    5. Beyond RapunzelI enjoyed this twist on the Rapunzel tale with an incubus who falls naked into her iconic tower. The demon isn't nearly as malevolent as he seems, and is in fact outdone by the witchy "mother." I downgraded my rating on this story because the intro was confusing, as were some sequences throughout the novella. The author cannot assume people have read the previous, narrowly connected tales, or if we have read them that it was yesterday. 3.5 rounded to 4 stars.

    6. This one is my least favorite in the series and the only 3-star rating I have given Blackstream. She is usually a 5 for me. Oh Adonis. I, of course, knew going in that he was an incubus, man-slut, and I tried not to let that negatively impact my opinion of the book. Rakes are one thing but men who are incapable of abstaining (for even a day) or staying true to one woman for any length of time aren’t my favorite heroes. I got over it for the most part. One thing that I really struggled to get p [...]

    7. So far I'm really not liking this book, I'm only continuing to read this because I enjoyed the first two and would like to finish the series.I'm on pg 136 and justh. In order to read romance you kind of have to be at least semi okay with big manwhores, but that is never an aspect I've enjoyed and as such I've always avoided books with Incubi. So I'm trying hard not to let that factor into my review of the book, but it's honestly not something I can really seem to look past. I've never enjoyed bo [...]

    8. I received a copy of this book from LoP in place of an honest review.Ivy feels that she is selfish when all she wants to be is out in the world not locked up in a lonely tower every day of her life. She knows that her mom needs to golden power that is in her hair. Ivy knows what she is she just doesn't want to admit it.Adonis is a demon and he has to get his power from sex because he is an incubus. He knows that he could never be faithful and that is including Ivy. There is just something about [...]

    9. “I look forward to the day I can repay my debt to each of you,” Kirill straightened and braced his arms behind his back. His voice lowered to a mere whisper. “Know that I am just as serious in repaying my allies as I am in punishing my enemies. You gave me your help when I needed it, before you had any reason to help me.” He lifted his chin, staring up at the World Tree. “Until I can make the proper repayment of your kindness, I intend for this…sharing of information, to be a step in [...]

    10. Gotta love an incubus!!Adonis I think is my favorite prince so far. He is cocky and confident. Yet he has a propensity for love and romance. Ivy is by no means a damsel in distress yet she is innocent and naive. She has been locked away in a tower by her mother. The two meet by happenstance and the sparks flew. It was a lovely journey to true love and discovering your truth. I really am enjoying this series.

    11. Ever since the prologue of the first book I have wanted to read about the Demon Prince (he's my favorite). I was not let down. Once again Jennifer Blackstream's retelling of a classic was better than the original. Her attention to detail and the magic in her words make the five kingdoms come to life.

    12. Review forthcoming on a-reader-lives-a-thousand-liveI received a copy of Golden Stair in exchange for my review.For her whole life Ivy has been stuck in a tower, while her mother refuses to let her outside in order to keep her safe. Convinced that there is a war going on, and that the 5 Kingdoms are ripping each other apart outside her protected home, when the demon Prince, Adonis, falls into her tower, Ivy gets a little bit defensive. But despite being an Incubus, Ivy warms to Adonis and they s [...]

    13. This review and many others can be found on my blog - Feed Your Fiction AddictionGolden Stair is a an incredibly enjoyable Rapunzel retelling. I was honestly surprised I loved this installment of the series as much as I did. I was kind of expecting, based on the synopsis and what I've known of Adonis up till this point in the series, that it was going to be heavy on the "carnal arts" that the blurb refers to and therefore possibly lacking in the actual story department. That actually wasn't the [...]

    14. This is such a fun idea for a series. All the stories we remember from childhood but given a grown up twist and this author excells at it. Each book in the Blood Prince series builds upon the last to take the reader on an amazing journey and yet all are standalnes without dreadful cliffhangers! Five princes all from different realms which surely must cumulate in an amazing conclusion but for now clear the decks and settle down with this the story of Adonis . Adonis is an incubus and his entangle [...]

    15. I found this to be slightly better than Kirill and Etienne's book, not by much, but more bearable. The only thing that really bugged me with this story was how Adonis had kissed Ivy and then a short time after that he kissed a dryad. It kind of took away the magic or significance of his blooming relationship with Ivy. I get what came before is before Ivy, but it felt like his kiss with her felt cheapened by the fact that he did the same thing to a different girl regardless of whether or not it w [...]

    16. Disclaimer: I received this book from the author as part of a R2R in the Lovers of Paranormal  group. This doesn't affect my review and the following is my honest opinion.I all but dove into Golden Stair after devouring One Bite. I've become quite enamored with Ms. Blackstream's writing and was eager to begin another Blood Prince tale. This one started a tad slower than I'd have liked but it wasn't bad, just a little slow. I enjoyed the prologue as usual and was excited to see more of some of [...]

    17. So if you haven’t read the first two books of this series, each story is a retelling of the classic fairy tales, just with a supernatural twist, and some awesome writing. And I loved loved the first one, which was the werewolf meets Cinderella LOL and the second one, is Snow White, and Prince Charming is a vampire LOL and now, we’ve got Rapunzel meets Prince Incubus. HEHEHEHE I absolutely love this author’s imagination and where she is taking the stories. You still get the feel for the ori [...]

    18. I had a hard time getting into this book. Even though I enjoyed the previous two, I kept putting this one aside. Mainly due to the male character’s attitude toward females. But halfway through, I was hooked. He isn’t as bad as I thought. At first, Adonis is a jerk, claiming that he’s never forced and woman and getting angry at the accusation. That’s what he was attempting to do. Ivy won’t have been interested if he hadn’t been seducing her. If he’s been a gentleman he would have ap [...]

    19. After finishing the first two books in the series I was super excited to start this one. After Before Midnight and One Bite I didn’t think it could get any better but Jennifer managed to keep the excitement going with this book. She took Rapunzel and twisted the story to make it interesting and exciting. We have the hero that is charming, sexy, and skilled. But he is also bruised and a little hopeless. Then we have the heroine that is smart and innocent without being dumb or weak.Ivy has been [...]

    20. The Rapunzel one! I loved it.Full review can also be found on: Paein and Ms4Tune’s Book BlogRapunzel! I liked this one the most so far. Ivy and Adonis are a perfect match. I love how at the end she NEEDS him as much as he NEEDS her, but that’s not why they’re together. When they first meet Ivy is pretty naive, though not as naive as she could be, for she has BOOKS! But her mother has told her fearsome horror stories of the lands outside her valley and she’s terrified of Adonis. Their wor [...]

    21. Gosh, I love fairy tale retellings and Jennifer Blackstream has hit this one out of the ball park! This one is a retelling of Rapunzel. In this one Ivy has spent her whole life locked away in her tower, while her witch mother fights against the kings of the five kingdoms and requires the energy that only Ivy can provide. Well one day Adonis (love the name!) comes crashing into her life. Together these two learn to love and can heal the pain from each others pasts. I seriously loved this book and [...]

    22. A lovely addition to a fantastic series, Golden Stair was a wonderful read. I loved this book. It was romantic and truly enjoyable. Ivy was a lovely heroine. She was genuinely kind, but, when it came down to it, she wasn't afraid to stand up for herself. I really liked her. I thought she was great.Adonis was also wonderful. He started off as an arrogant player but, when he fell, he fell hard. He turned out to be very sweet and very devoted to the woman he loved. He was adorable and I totally lov [...]

    23. Back at the World Tree the princes of the five kingdoms are meeting again. With Etienne and Kirill having found their brides Euripides is happier and is hopeful her plan will work. Kirill feels he has a debt to pay to his peers and shares his research but they are still angry because they think he's selfish. Adonis the incubus leaves the tree with mixed feelings about when his time will come, anger at Krill and desire for a new world. Ivy has been locked in the tower by her mother against the ch [...]

    24. I received this book in exchange for an honest review (Lovers of Paranormal)I will admit that I did not think I’d like Adonis. I always resist a rake, and it is usually oh so pointless. In the end, it took longer for Ivy to win me over than that charming demon. He has a lovely heart and a greater spirit, and I think she complements him quite nicely.I loved the story. I thought it was fun, it sucked me in right from the start, had some really sultry and steamy moments, and I hated tearing mysel [...]

    25. Ivy wants to leave the tower she's been in her whole life. She knows it's selfish when he mother sacrifices so much, but she wants to be out in the real world not hiding from it locked in a tower to be kept safe. She just can't leave her mother who needs the golden power of her hair to heal from the ravages of the war going to free the five kingdoms. Adonis is an incubus bound by a vow to keep his bodily form. He requires mor energy than any one woman can give him because of this in order to sur [...]

    26. Another great part of the series! I loved the characters and the interactions between them. I also liked the way Jennifer Blackstream went about this particular retelling. Adonis's tendency to act on impulse was a great part of the story and allowed for some great things to happen. Another thing I loved about this book, and the previous one, was the inclusion of characters from the previous novel. I'm only giving this one four stars instead of five because there were several places in the story [...]
