Survivors told of an evil giant who guards the gold and glittering jewels with savage strength.

No sane man would dare risk the climb—but Jack has nothing left to lose.

I often find that modern retellings of classic fairy tales can often be hit or miss for me as a reader.

When he finally decides to brave climbing the treacherous beanstalk in the valley near his cottage he only does so in hopes to find enough treasure to pay off a debt owed.He expects to face a giant at the top of the beanstalk, but what he finds instead changes his entire life. Bound by a sense of familial duty, he makes it his life’s mission to guard his families treasure from any “outsiders” who may attempt to steal in greed.But again I might be just reading too much into it and 'Jack and Beanstalk' always felt a bit that way anyway!! The lapsed Catholic in me also picked up up on, what felt like, a lot religious undertones but I might just be reading too much into it.Rion's life in particular felt very religious orderish and the people being afraid of the 'giant in the sky'?Isolated in the clouds, Jack and Rion give in to their desire and growing connection. LOTS of dirty, grunting, sweaty sex between Jack of the flaming red hair and Rion the not-so-giant "giant" who has to protect his castle from Outsiders below.

This is an enemies-to-lovers story that's juicy, sweet, and suspenseful. And I love plentiful, smexy action between two men who adore each other. Definitely recommend this one- don't be put off by the fact that's it's based on a fairy tale cause you'll be missing out I gotta admit I was skeptical about this one. I'm not saying that's a bad thing but Jack's horrible life and past made me sad over and over and over again.

But do they have the courage to let go of the past and follow their dreams?

This is very much a twist on Jack and the Beanstock, a story I don't particularly like. There's an edge of mystery and a beautiful romance between two men, each trapped in his own loneliness and misery: Jack because he's shunned by the town, including his family, for having the "hair of the devil" and Rion, who allows a hollow promise to rule his future. I seldom read fantasy, but this book had two things in it's favor: a GINGER(! I'm glad I took a chance because this was such a clever take on Jack and the Bean Stalk. *Heartbreak*Mystery*Hot sex*Romance*Magic My only complaint is that (for purely selfish reasons) I wish it had been longer. And because of that sad life, the loneliness, the ostracism - it all drives him to desperate measures, hoping to find treasure high in the sky.So despite my painful fretting throughout most of this book, I'm just grateful that Jack finally gets his well deserved happy ending. The lapsed Catholic in me also picked up up on, what felt like, a lot religious undertones but I might just be reading too much into it.Rion's life in particular felt very religious orderish and the people being afraid of the 'giant in the sky'? How Jack was ostracised and Rion's isolation was kind of heart breaking.So despite my painful fretting throughout This hurt my feelings. I'm not saying that's a bad thing but Jack's horrible life and past made me sad over and over and over again.And because of that sad life, the loneliness, the ostracism - it all drives him to desperate measures, hoping to find treasure high in the sky.This is an entirely ingenious new take on the classic fairy tale, and I was thoroughly entertained.
