What the Queen Wills:
A Genderswapped Cinderella Retelling
In a magical kingdom far away, there lived cursed princes, warrior women, and powerful heroes. What the Queen Wills is a sexy genderswapped Cinderella retelling where the heroes have become heroines, the heroines have become heroes, and nothing is as it seems. In this polyamorous tale of seduction, liberation, and intoxicating strangers, even the humblest of peasants has a shot with the Queen if she so wills.

This is a totally delightful retelling of Cinderella with a gender twist that finds Eliot down on his knees scrubbing floors while his two ugly brothers are whooping it up on the social scene as they climb the invisible ladder to someone’s bedsheets. Eliot’s dream is to attend the annual orgy (yes, there’s more than one twist in AJ Tipton’s fairy tail) put on by Queen Cassandra – admission free for those with proven sexual prowess.
Eliot may have an ally in Amelia, the ex-servant of his brothers, a girl so brutalized and mistreated, she fled to the palace kitchens where the Queen has begun to notice her curvy youthful charms. In this land of lust and lascivity, the lowliest black finger-nailed peasant has a chance with the insatiable monarch.
Sexy, outrageous, funny and even charming, What the Queen Wills is one of a series of reverse gender fairy tales told for a new generation. I shall be seeking out the rest.

I really enjoy retellings of classic fairytales, so when the author asked me to review her book in exchange for an honest review, I was intrigued. I really liked the whole heroine to hero aspect of this book. To make a classic such as Cinderella and make her character a male, instead of a female was delightful.
I really liked Eliot’s character and really felt for him. I hated his brothers and loved Amelia, a friend and later ally in the book. Queen Cassandra was an interesting character. She projected power, and control, which I expected, but I was shocked at how kind she was. Great character. The plot of this story was definitely different from books I normally read, but I loved that it was different and unique.
This book is steamy, so I suggest people 18+ should read this book.
I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a short, but steamy novel. Especially if you enjoy fairytale retellings.

I like erotica fairytales, but I love when they are done right. When the authors offered me a copy in exchange for an honest review, I was excited because not only was it a retelling of an erotic fairytale, but it was a gender bent one. What the Queen Wills is definitely done right. The authors don’t bore us with tedious world and character building but still gives us enough to understand what is going on and connect with the characters so they are not just faceless bodies having sex.
There is only one problem I had with this story and that is that some elements seemed ridiculous to me. The honorific given to the Queen was silly and the fact that the whole country revolved around sex just didn’t sit right with me. I liked how open the world was about sex, but it just seemed like the entire country focused on it, all the time. It didn’t take away from the story though.
That being said, this is a great retelling. The gender bending was an interesting twist and one that worked well. The erotic scenes were delicious without being tasteless and the characters had such personality despite it being such a short story. What I liked most, however, was that this was a FFM story. I was honestly just thinking to myself the other day that there are such few well-written ménage erotica featuring two women and a man. Usually, they consist of a woman with two men. Not only that, but the woman has to choose between one of them at the end, as if it unrealistic to be in love with more than one person and be in a polyamorous relationship. I absolutely loved that the author made it more about the pleasure of the trio instead of them having to choose who would be a couple.
Overall, What the Queen Wills is a great short story and perfect for anyone looking for a well written erotic fairytale to warm them at night.
