Free Agent by JC Nelson
When it comes to crafting happily-ever-afters, the Agency is the best in the land of Kingdom. The Fairy Godfather Grimm can solve any problem—from eliminating imps to finding prince charming—as long as you can pay the price…
Working for Grimm isn’t Marissa Locks’s dream job. But when your parents trade you to a Fairy Godfather for a miracle, you don’t have many career options. To pay off her parents’ debt and earn her freedom, Marissa must do whatever Grimm asks, no matter what fairy-tale fiasco she’s called on to deal with.
Setting up a second-rate princess with a first-class prince is just another day at the office. But when the matchmaking goes wrong, Marissa and Grimm find themselves in a bigger magical muddle than ever before. Not only has the prince gone missing, but the Fae are gearing up to attack Kingdom, and a new Fairy Godmother is sniffing around Grimm’s turf, threatening Marissa with the one thing she can’t resist: her heart’s wishes.
Now Marissa will have to take on Fairies, Fae, dragons, and princesses to save the realm—or give up any hope of ever getting her happy ending…

Reading Free Agent by JC Nelson I fell in love with the heroine Marissa, as well as some of the side characters, especially Ari. JC is a fresh new voice, with more skill than your average debut author. The characters pop off the page but it wasn’t the character’s themselves that captivated me as much as it was the snippy way they tended to interact with each other, and JC’s voice itself.
I love good banter between characters and clever dialogue and JC has a knack for twisting words just as craftily as fairy tales. There’s just enough fairy tale familiarity in Free Agent to make a reader feel comfortable and at home, while leaving plenty of room for new and interesting to not leave a reader bored for a moment. If you like Kate Danley’s Maggie for Hire series, then I think you will love Free Agent by JC Nelson. I can’t wait for Armageddon Rules.
