Looking for a light-hearted story where disparate characters really work well together, then look no further, this is a drama packed story to put a smile on your face.
After her parents’ split up, April Swanson has tried to keep the peace between everyone, acting as go between striving to maintain the status quo and not let anyone rock the boat. She’s sunshine on two legs, always encouraging others and putting on a happy face, even when this is a facade hiding her true feelings. This actually makes her something of a doormat, always there but rarely appreciated. With the New Year, she decides to make a fresh start and signs up for help with The Cinderella Project, wanting to be helped to achieve the promotion she really wants. That decision is what sparks off all the turmoil that follows and leads on to her HEA!
Finn Ward has a hidden history that is now in danger of being revealed. He’s done well for himself with the support of some very caring folk who treat him as part of their family. However, his real father has been back in touch and that is bad news as far as Finn is concerned . . . .
As the Cinderella Project starts with April meeting Hazel in an up market bar, she spots the brooding man at the bar . . . With Hazel and her team endeavouring to manipulate situations, April and Finn deciding whether to fight their mutual attraction or give in to it, a sister and mother who have their own agendas that aren’t to April’s benefit together with even more craziness along the way, this is a cute romance with plenty of twists and turns to escape into.
Many thanks to the publishers and NetGalley for gifting me an ARC of this novel. This is my honest review.
April Swanson is so hopeful about all the possibilities New Year’s might bring, she’s practically Pollyanna. She’s hardly wishing for the world, after all – just a little less family crazy and the promotion she’s perfect for. Surely then she can finally let loose and not strive to be such a good girl all the time.
For reformed bad boy, Finn Ward, hope is a four letter word, yet he has a New Year’s wish of his own – to silence his dark and twisted past before it unravels his future and hurts the people he cares about. No matter what.
So why would fate trick two such disparate souls into a fake first date? Maybe because they’ve both made the wrong wish…
