Aria Ritter works in DC. She is an intern for the Senator, she goes to work one morning and can’t scan the badge to get into the office. She learns she has been terminated and her step mother is the reason. Step mom wants her to gather information to sell and to have Aria in her pocket for profit
Henry is in town to do business. He is a prince and literally runs into Aria as she is in the park. He offers to buy her lunch, she agrees. All this time her mother wants her back at a dead end job, but the reason is to scan documents and send them to her. I would have loved to hear what the step mothers punishment would have been. Other then that it was a good book. Could have done better with less adult content. Makes me think of the current prince. And the new American woman who shall become a part of the royal family.
My disclaimer... I was given a copy of this book for my honest review. Any book or novels I leave reviews on are not dependent on the book/novel review author’s opinion. No one influenced my voluntary review for any of the books or novels I read, they are my own opinions
I was instantly sucker punched from the first chapter! I first so bad for Aria I just couldn't believe that already things were turning sour for her. But things take a turn and she finds herself a sweet and handsome man. Well, he finds her ;)
Things aren't exactly easy for Aria. Evil stepmother constantly on her back and the pressure of protecting her father's legacy... it's enough to make anyone want to scream in rage. And yet Henry is there to help her through the muck. A dashing prince ready to battle anyone in his path. And yet, he is incredible kind and shy at times. "Am I yours?" I nodded enthusiastically. "Very much so." His smile lit my world.
Aw... it makes your heart melt. And yet, you have this anxious and apprehensive feeling lingering in the pit of your stomach. But it's not only evil stepmothers with secrets in their closets... But a fairy in disguise somehow comes to the rescue! And a dragon gets their comeuppance ;)
It's a great new spin on a classic favourite. It brings Cinderella into the modern world which makes it relatable and all the more real. I had strong feelings for some characters. Some which deserved to be slapped... with their own book! It's a real credit to Krista for writing such real characters that cause you to invest yourself into their lives. The blurb and cover were what originally caught my attention but the story within had me hooked from page 1! I'd definitely say that this was a fantastic story.
I love a good fairy tale with a modern twist, Cinderella is one of my favourites. I love seeing people raise above like Aria does in this book. I love seeing the wicked stepmother lose, I love Henry from the start and loved watching Aria's and his relationship develop. This book is over the top sweet, it had me hook, line and sinker. I am a sucker for stories like this one. It is well written, with characters that you can't help but love. I can't wait to see what Krista comes up with next.
