Kelly Martin has done it again another plus five star read.

She does an excellent job at twisting a classic Fairy Tale.

Emma Hartwell is a servant girl working for Fredrick Dodsworth to pay off her father's debts. She is best friends with Tracey, Mr Dodsworth's daughter who's first season is coming up. On the day of the first ball Tracey falls mysteriously ill with a cough and is too sick to attend. To avoid Tracey becoming a pariah in society, Emma is sent to the ball with a note to excuse Tracey's absence. Elizabeth another servant gives Emma
a stunning green dress to wear so that she does not stick out at the ball. Nervous and feeling very out of place Emma just to quickly go in and deliver the note and get out. However this not to be for she catches the eye of Lord Vaughan Wexley, there is something about this young lady that has Vaughan very interested and it takes a lot of persuading on his part to get her to dance a since Waltz with him. Emma loves being in his arms but knows nothing can come of it for she is a servant and he is a lord. Unknown to either party larger forces are at work will this bring a happy end or a shattered one.

From being to end Kelly Martin knows how to keep you interested. I really enjoyed this book and eagerly look forward to the next book in this series

This is not quite a usual type of romance in that many things are orchestrated by the bad guy. However, the actual romantic parts are very standard. I found that I could not fully enjoy this book due to the over-reliance on Cinderella tropes and due to the ridiculous amount of vague talking. If any person would have spoken clearly and concretely sooner, a lot of heartache would have been avoided (and the reader would feel less like she's left in the dark for too long...). I understand that miscommunication is one of key plot devices in romance novels, but here it got annoying. I do admit I am curiously waiting for the next book in the series, but not because I enjoyed this one very much, only because I want to know what happens to the characters.

It really was a 3.5 story. It was good and I was intrigued, but I like my H's with a bit more backbone, more manly. I felt that this H was not in charge, not really ready to be a H. I don't know how to really express it other than he wasn't my fantasy man. Not enough of a H for me. The h was more brave in her sacrifices than he was.

I have read a LOT of regencies and I have read a LOT of Cinderella re-tellings, but none, I repeat NONE can compare to Betraying Ever After. Martin weaves an amazing tale of revenge, lies and betrayal that I could not help but become caught up in! If you think that you know how the story will turn out, you will be wrong! You cannot possibly guess each different turn the story will take and the emotions are portrayed so well that as I reader I was almost in tears at points! I feel like whatever I write about Betraying Ever After will be inadequate to express how awesome this book was. I could not put it down and I could not stop thinking about it! Every detail is woven together seamlessly and the characters came to life right before my eyes! Two days later, I am still thinking about Betraying Ever After! I can see it all in my head like a movie. If you want the best re-telling of Cinderella (in my opinion, and I have read a lot of fairy tale re-tellings), then pick this book up! But be prepared to sit for a long while because you will not be able to put it down until you finish the last page! Bravo to Martin who has transitioned to the fairy tale world beautifully! I received a copy of this book for free; all thoughts and opinions are my own. I would have happily purchased this book for myself and loved and reviewed it just the same!

This is a wonderful retelling of the Cinderella tale. Kelly Martin created characters that I loved and one that I loved to hate. Her bad guy is a wonderful puppeteer pulling the string it seems of everyone. It is a moving story that propels you on, you hurt and cheer for Emma. The hurt that she has had to endure simply so one can seek vengence is unspeakable and heartbreaking.

True to all of Kelly's books there is a mystery to be solved on this. Clues along the way that are so subtle one may not pick up on them until after the fact.

I am looking forward to the second book in this series. And will be reading this one again. I think Kelly did an excellent job retelling this fairy tale and making it all her own.

I can't express how much I enjoyed this book. I had been searching for something good to read without success until I came across this one. I slept 3 hours last night because I did not want to put it down, and then at work today, I would read a little from my phone in between my work and of course, during my lunch time. Give it a try, I truly believe you will like it as much as I have.

Ok, so the story line was intriguing, the pacing good, but holy hell- the writing!!!! So, I'm kind of an editorial jerk, but come on! It's clear the author has a few glaring misconceptions about the English language. At first, I thought it was just an editorial blip, easily missed, ok, but after frequent repetition, I had to concede defeat. The two most frequent ones, which just made me want to scream were: 1) everyone kept clinching their fists and jaws... I believe the word you meant was clenched; 2) some one or other's eyes kept averting other character's eyes. I'm guessing by other descriptives that she meant caught their eyes in a stare, but to quote the princess bride "you keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means". Also the characters will randomly speak incongruously for the time period and gender roles (one of the lords yells "excuse you!" Like a modern teenage girl) I honestly don't know if I can continue with the next book. I'm a sucker for an interesting tale and love redone fairy tales, but I don't know how much teeth gnashing my jaw can stand.
