I honestly don't remember how I got this book. It either won it in a giveaway or it was gifted to me by the author.

GoodReads Synopsis:
Tink is hopelessly smitten with Peter, the leader of the Lost Boys who'd mysteriously arrived at Neverland two years ago. Unfortunately, Peter is tired of the adventure and especially tired of dodging Captain Hook who is after his head. He just wants to go back to New York City and live his life as a normal fifteen-year-old.
Tink is the only one who can help Peter return, but it breaks her heart to do it. She just wants to make him happy, so she does the unthinkable and betrays the fairy king. Now her heart is filled with remorse. Should she go after Peter? Should she follow him to his New York?
Originally published as six separate novella episodes, Love, Tink the complete series is all six stories together in one volume.
This book has been on my shelf since 2012 and I've always been interested in it. For whatever reason, though, I never seemed to pick it up.  When I joined the 2016 Retelling Challenge at The Daily Prophecy, I knew that I had to put this one on my to-read list.

I started reading this book on my own and, though I enjoyed it, I don't normally read books like this. So I found myself craving to read something more... adult. I ended up putting the book down and read a couple other books while this one lay on my nightstand abandoned. I found myself feeling terrible about putting it down. The book was good and there was no real reason why I stopped reading it. So, to satisfy both sides of myself, I decided to read my normal books and make this one mine and my daughter's bedtime read. With the fairies and fantasy of it, it was still a good read for her toddler brain. :)

Love, Tink was super cute and I really enjoyed it. I actually ended up finishing the book on my own (not at bedtime) because I wanted to know what was going to happen next. It was a cute little retelling of Peter Pan, from Tink's point of view, and would honestly make a cute little movie for a middle grade audience.  This is a book that I would have absolutely no problems letting my daughter read in the future.

It was a little cheesy at times and there were a few spelling errors here and there but overall, the book was really cute and a great read.

Rating: 3 Stars.
Favorite Character: Tink and Peter.
