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.

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…
My Musings : 
I received a free copy for an honest review via IndieSage. 

Firstly the blurb totally had my attention with 1 word - Cinderella. I don't know about you guys but I love fairy tales especially the story of Cinderella so this was a must read for me. 
This is the first book I have read in this series and also the author is a new one to me. So I went into it without any expectations. The author did a wonderful job and has made me a fan of her writing. 

The starting was to the point and there was no slow pace at all in any of the scenes. I literally devoured the book in a couple of hours. The protagonists, Alicia and Leo were similar yet oppsites and so the attraction between them works. Alicia was a sweet person but had too much of life's difficulties which has made her hide herself. She seemed standoffish at times while Leo was kind of a jerk at times inspite of being a courteous hero most of the times.

The chemistry between them was off the charts. The sexual tension was very hot and steamy. The story was both sweet and smoldering. It was a very quick entertaining read and the misunderstanding between them showed the emotional side of the protagonists. How they work out their past and try to reach beyond to stay together forms the remaining story. 

As implied, it is a modern Cinderella retelling with a wary princess, a misunderstood hero and an evil stepmother who is also the fairy godmother which ends up being a sexy happily ever after tale. I recommend this to all the fairy tale romance lovers out there who like spice in their romance.

My rating : 4.5/5
