Synopsis: His Cinderella isn’t looking for a fairy tale…

Alicia Forkes went to a trendy club looking for a way to forget her troubles, and she found that in the arms of the gorgeous man who swept her off of her feet…and into one of the hottest encounters she’d ever had in her life. Awesome sex with a stranger is now something she can check off her bucket list.

Except he isn’t exactly a stranger. He’s the guy who broke her heart when they were teens, an experience she doesn’t plan on repeating.

Prince Leo can’t believe he’s finally found the woman he’s loved for years, and she wants nothing to do with him. When she shows up at his office, she looks anything but princess-like. In fact, she’s cursing him to hell and back. She may not be Cinderella, but he’s determined to prove he’s the prince for her––even if it means letting her go.

My Review

This is a delightful modern day Cinderella story, with underhand manipulations thwarting young love only a decade later being regretted and a second chance provided for the sparks to fly! With so many secret interventions preventing their developing relationship from flourishing, driving the young lovers apart, when they meet again unaware of the deceptions which kept them apart can they break down the barriers preventing trust and allow their hearts to reconnect and love to develop further? It is a well written story with plenty of dramatic history to explain why Alicia has been devastated by the Prince’s actions, so much so that she no longer trusts him or anyone else, really. When he denies knowledge of those very actions she doesn’t believe him – is he telling the truth or not?

This is definitely a story where I really don’t want to give any spoilers out but there is an article of footwear lost as the heroine, Alicia Forkes, runs from the Prince! It is a great modern fairytale to escape into, with plenty of unanticipated links to the classic version. There’s everyone from the very handsome and caring Prince Charming, the feisty, independent and betrayed Cinderella, even the equivalent to the wicked stepmother trying to keep them apart – who turns out to be the Fairy Godmother reuniting them in the end!

Looking for a royal romance in which Cinderella’s dreams come true – but only after plenty of turmoil and angst ? Then look no further as this is a thoroughly enjoyable contemporary romance, well told, with definite links to the classic Cinderella story!

Many thanks to Entangled for gifting me an ARC of this novel in exchange for my honest review and to IndieSage PR for organising and providing materials for this tour!

Genres: Adult, Entangled: Indulgence, Contemporary Romance

Synopsis: Beauty is about to tame her beast…

Researcher Maggie Donovan has no luck with men, and it doesn’t help that she can’t keep her eyes off of her sexy boss – the one everyone else in the office calls The Beast. Relationships in the office are forbidden. So no one is more surprised than Maggie when she pretends to be his fiancée to save him during a difficult situation. Not only has she put her job on the line, but the future of the company.

Billionaire Benjamin Gale III doesn’t believe in love or romance, but the look on his mother’s face when Maggie tells her that she’s his fiancée is worth millions. Instead of firing her for her insubordination, he goes along with the ruse. In his arms-and in his bed-she’d be everything he could ever want…which is why he can’t have her.

But if he doesn’t let her go, they’ll lose everything…
