What's a girl to do when she wakes up poisoned in the ER and finds that she's lost her memory, her family, and very nearly her life?
That was me. Three months ago. With no identity, no money, and nowhere to go on the day I was discharged from the hospital, I gratefully accepted my gorgeous ER doctor's offer to move in with him and his equally gorgeous six friends – the ones who'd found me unconscious in an apple orchard. My plan was to stay until my memory returned, and I could figure out who I was and if someone really had tried to kill me.
Together with Doc, these were an amazingly diverse bunch of guys, but there was something about each of them that attracted me powerfully enough to want to explore it. The policeman with his clever handcuffs. The cunningly linguistic librarian. The disciplinarian teacher. The virgin computer whiz who loved to play sex games. The engineer who created shotgun orgasms. The wildly imaginative baker.
Becoming intimate with these seven men completed me in ways I suspected discovering my name never would. That is, until the fateful day a man showed up claiming to be my fiancé

SNOW WHITE AND HER SEVEN LOVERS by Jenna Ives was an entertaining twist on a modern Snow White story. Blanche is found in an apple orchard, seemingly the victim of poisoning. She's rushed to the ER and when she wakes, she has no idea who she is or what happened. Unfortunately, she's about to be released from the hospital but has nowhere to go. The ER doc who helped her offers to let her move in with him and his six male roommates.
Blanche's relationships with what she comes to refer to as the seven dwarfs are as unique as each man.
Likes: Modern take on a fairytale. Has all the components of a short story without leaving readers with too many unanswered questions. We get enough about the different characters to accept her descriptions of them. Cute reversal there with guys referring to her as Snow White. The big reveal, while predictable, was cute.
Dislikes: The story requires an incredible suspension of disbelief. Since it's told in first person, it's difficult to gauge the other characters since the only perception we do have of them is from Blanche and her character seems incredibly unconvincing. The language and overall storytelling was weak.
This story won't be for everyone and I've no idea how subsequent stories from Ms. Ives reads. It's an entertaining quick read but in terms of content, insubstantial as it was, I was left wanting more.
