My Musings :
This is the first book I have read by the author and I can easily see myself reading her other works too.
The book is a unique retelling of the classical fairy tale, Cinderella with a couple of twists and surprises. I loved the concept and the way the author has treated the tale while the characters didn't make me go gaga over them.
Let me start with the characters. Firstly there is Allie, the female protagonist. I hated and loved her during the story reading. On one hand, she comes across as spoiled, selfish and a snob while on the other hand, she is a person who's been hurting inside and needs happiness in her life. Then there's Angelo/Victor, the male protagonist. I loved him with his mysterious background and his attitude towards life. The character which totally surprised me was Adrienne. She wasn't as bad as I figured.
As I said earlier, the story was as familiar as it was different. I loved the way it was presented. One thing I didn't like was the too much attention on Allie's moping around. That was a negative for me. Other than that, all other points were positive. The story flowed easily and I could easily imagine the goings on except in certain places. The ending meshed well with the fairy tale vibe and it hints at a story for Adrienne which I am curious to read about.
So overall, I can say that romance lovers who have a soft spot for fairy tale retellings will like this one.
My one line review : A fun and unique Cinderella retelling with few twists and surprises.
My rating : 4/5
My reread factor : 3/5
