Book Description

Fashionista Francesca St. James has agreed to work as a "fairy godmother" on the reality TV show Project Cinderella, taking contestants from geeky to dreamy. When Francesca’s archrival bets she can't transform the awkwardly sweet CEO to hot in under eight weeks, Francesca accepts the challenge.

As CEO of a tech company, Greg may have billions, but what’s it worth without a woman to share it with? From day one on the show though, he clashes with his gorgeous fairy godmother—yet off-set, he can’t stop thinking about her. But this sexy woman is so far out of his league…and wants to change every single thing about him. It's up to him to show her it's more than clothes that make the man.

May the best man or geek win…

Editorial Reviews


" addictive, seductive series that will have you believing in fairy tales again." - Lisa Renee Jones, New York Times bestselling author

4 Stars! "This is the anticipated second book to the Suddenly Cinderella Series, but new readers won't have any trouble jumping into the story. Much like the first book in the series, The Cinderella Makeover is an upbeat novel that is heartwarming and funny. The characters are endearing and the dialogue witty."  -- Eve Polak for RT BOOK Reviews

5.0 out of 5 stars fun, sexy and entertaining March 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
The Cinderella Makeover by Hope Tarr is a fun and sexy continuation to the Suddenly Cinderella series.

In this book we will once again see Francesca St James, only now it's her turn to get her Cinderella story. Francesca does not believe in fairy tales or happily ever afters but after getting the vintage shoes from Starr she gets the offer to be a "fairy godmother" on the new reality TV show Project Cinderella.

Greg Knickerbocker is known as the billionaire CEO of a tech company but he has never wanted to have his picture taken for any PR, instead his team has always been part of the image. Now as he is dumped for the hundredth time, he decides to make a change, his solution is to go on the show Project Cinderella.

Francesca cannot forgive Greg for the loss of her reputation as a professional photographer when he did not allow her to take his picture, instead giving her one of his baby pictures. But now seeing him as part of the fairy godmentor team that will help all the contestants change, she is seeing a part of him that she did not expect before.

Unfortunately, the director did the one thing she did not expect him to do, he also hired her worst enemy and the woman her last lover ran to not even ten days after their breakup Deidre Dupree. Competition runs amok, and Greg being the most geeky and least likely to win becomes their personal bet. If he wins Deidre and her boyfriend will have to cook and act as waitress for Francesca and her chosen friends. But if he looses Francesca will have to give Deidre her front row seats at Fashion shows.

As Francesca secretly helps Greg to improve and build his confidence in front of others, she also starts falling for him.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Cinderfella Love Story March 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
ARC was provided by Entangled Publishing, LLC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

The Cinderella Makeover romance is part of the Suddenly Cinderella series but can be read as a stand-alone. The book opens with Francesca St James, a photographer of British descent, on assignment for GQ. Her subject is reclusive and socially awkward social media billionaire Greg Knickerbocker. In an attempt to give insight to the man behind the billion dollar company, Francesca shows up at his office for an appointment. Greg's overwhelming shyness transforms into an outright refusal to allow himself to be photographed. Francesca storms out, without getting any pictures which tarnishes her professional reputation.

Fast forward to months later and Greg's aloofness has landed him as a Class-A "dumpee" for the 100th time! To revamp his personal image and improve his love life, he agrees to be on a "swan transformation" makeover reality TV show. The TV show has 6 contestants, 3 Cinderellas and 3 Cinderfellas to be made over, and 6 judges, or Fairy Godmothers in different areas. Francesca signs on as a Fashion Stylist/Photographer and once on set realizes that Greg is a participant. As the TV show progresses Francesca and Greg cease to be enemies, and actually work together so that Greg has the best shot at winning the competition. Greg becomes more physically attractive and opens up emotionally. Like a moth to a flame, Francesca falls for him. Just one catch: fraternization and/or romantic entanglements between a judge and a contestant is not allowed. Hiding their budding romance, the couple realizes that they have more in common than they first thought.

Tarr penned a winner with Cinderella Makeover!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cinderella or Cinderfella :) March 20, 2013
By Huxley
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great addition to the series. I really enjoyed how Greg, despite his many positives still has trouble finding the love of his love. Just goes to show you "All we want is love." The initial scene between Greg and Francesca is priceless, beckons to the days when you would see Bogart and Bacall or Tracy and Hepburn go back forth with witty dialogue and banter.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute Romance April 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book was very cute! I read the first in the series a couple months ago and really enjoyed it. This one I enjoyed probably a bit more. I liked how you get to see another side to Francesca. I felt like in the first book the only image she gave me was one of being a totally presumptuous biatch. Like she only cared about fashion and having a nice life and looking good. Then again the story wasn't really about her and it was just a skim. In this book we see Francesca in a totally new light. She's struggling with different aspects of her life and you can see how truly worried she is about the direction her relationship with her daughter is going and how she regrets many events that led them there.
Greg is this charming, yet a bit socially awkward guy. He's cute and messy and not very fashionable. Totally NOT like Francesca. Somehow they're attracted to each other and after some time I can actually see how.
I loved how you it's almost... creeping up on them, the whole liking each other thing. At first they both just feel contempt and suddenly they actually genuinely get along. Very good read. Such a cute romance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cinderella meets the Ugly Duckling April 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
As I was reading The Cinderella Makeover, it kind of reminded me of Cinderella meets the Ugly Duckling. Here's why: When Francesca actually meets Greg for the first time she saw real potential with his looks, but he was too focus on his company that he didn't put much effort into his appearance. About a year later, Greg realizes that he needed to change something in order to find his soul-mate. Wow, kind of refreshing to have a guy like that. By throwing these two people on a Reality TV was an interesting way to get these destiny lovers together.

I actually thought it was unique to have Francesca and Greg relationship start off from enemies and have them slowly progress to lovers (enemies-->frienemies-->friends-->lovers). Plus, I love how Ms. Tarr had to add Francesca's nemesis (Deidre Dupree) to the mix. Most of all I love Greg's ugly duckling transformation and his love for ABBA (yes, that 1970s band). He wasn't bad looking, but he was hiding from the world and afraid to take a chance on him.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. I thought Greg and Francesca were great together. Of course, I was chuckling at parts (of course you have to when you have a guy singing ABBA songs) and I got a bit choked up. So, if you want to a story where Cinderella finds her prince charming in a form of an ugly duckling (by the way that ugly duckling did turn into a beautiful swan), you might want to take a chance on The Cinderella Makeover.

A Note From Hope:

I suppose you could say I've always been a dreamer. In my mind's eye, I can still see my first-grade teacher shaking her head and scolding, "Hope, stop daydreaming and pay attention!"

I tried, really I did. But how could the dreary assignment on the chalkboard begin to lure me away from the dashing Disney fairy-tale figures populating my head? Cinderella and Prince Charming, Snow White and Prince Charming, Sleeping Beauty and Pr--

Well, you get the picture.

As a romance writer, I get to spin fairy-tales of my very own---life-affirming stories in which the hero and heroine find not only their soul mate but their souls into the bargain. I've written twelve books to date, both historical and contemporary settings. Regardless, the overarching message underlying each cherished story remains the same.

True love truly exists and yes, when shared, it is intrepid.

Wishing you fairytale dreams come true,

Hope Tarr
