“ARC given for an honest review”
Jane isn’t entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn’t she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes—or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire—maybe do exist.
Except Brock Wellington isn’t anyone’s dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk—even if it was just a façade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it’s karmic retribution that he’s tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can’t have. But while they can’t have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy.
He’s senile. Last night he asked if I believed in unicorns.
This was a modern day spin of the classic fairytale, Cinderella. The story was filled with laughter, angst, and wit. I love the storyline, it was sweet and at times very heart warming. I loved the Wellington brother’s, they had such a tight nit relationship, and their banter was the best part. The story was well written and well paced. At times throughout the book I really wanted to shake the main characters to wake up and see what’s in front of them. There were times that the story got a little cheesy but I think it fitted in well. I’d be looking forward reading the other books in this series.
