Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: Romance, Women's fiction
My first book by this author so I didn't know what to expect. Sadly its one that didn't work. I think that though this author's work is perfect for many readers I'm looking for something different. That's life.
I was intrigued by the synopsis but in practice the story has so much more. Unfortunately it wasn't what I look for in a novel, and unfolded in a way that left me with more questions than answers.
Everything happened so fast, one morning she's at work as usual, then later that day she's marrying Michael!
I understood - just- the issues around the marriage, but in practical terms I just don't believe they would work. Arranging a wedding in such a short time too isn't possible, Scotland might be the land of elopement but even then there were/are time restrictions. You cannot simply get married on the day you think of it...Legalities just don't allow it and without some kind of explanation of how they got round them I can't put that aside.
Then there's the reasons: I thought Tatiana's issues felt contrived, I didn't see that the marriage would affect that, and I didn't like her or her mum.
Michael's film and image problems too, well, they may be real but marrying one day, filing for divorce the next isn't going to change them. Studio heads don't make decisions this way, they wouldn't have given him the role so quickly just because he got married on a whim. That doesn't scream stable and settled even if he could convince them he'd known CC a while. Especially when his involvement in Tatiana's life is well known..the practicalities just wouldn't work.
And then there's the second thread, the description makes no mention of this, the sisters and the magical matchmaking. I was pretty confused when that all started, I love fantasy novels but this was just...odd...and I found it hard to believe in.
I hadn't read the first book, thinking it wouldn't matter as these are connected but stand alone reads, so maybe that would have helped me understand what was going on there. Perhaps? I don't know.
As it was I felt it was a book that had maybe just too much packed into too short a space, as it's just 133 pages long.
I didn't ever feel I knew the characters more than just a surface gloss of them, and I wasn't really invested in them or their issues. Either a longer book so more detail, or less complex story might possibly have made a difference for me, but of course not all books suit all readers, and for very many readers this book will be perfect as it is.
If you like light and fluffy, don't bother about practicality and reality and are happy to accept the story as its presented then you'll love this.
If like me you need reasons for decisions, ones that feel real and are practical/legal, and want to get to know your characters well then probably you won't.
Stars: Two, too unbelievable for me - and I don't mean the fantasy side, but the practicalities.

The idea of the matchmakers being able to bring about a bit of time travel greatly adds to the fairy tale element of the romance. Even the secondary story of the matchmaking sisters having a heartrending romance going on made you want to see what comes next for them and love in their lives.
But, back to CC and Michael. Michael has to clean up his image while helping Tatiana’s husband move forward with their divorce so Michael and Tatiana can marry. Tatiana and her mother Alba come up with the idea of Michael ‘fake’ marrying their assistant CC to mislead Tatiana’s current husband. Geeee – what a mess. Sweet CC is battling being in love with Michael so much that she will do anything for him.
In order to keep Michael and CC out of the public eye once the marriage takes place, the matchmaking sisters send them back in time but for a very short amount of time. The sisters believe a couple have to go through a bit of a trial in order to ‘cement’ their relationship. CC and Michael definitely did that in a brief evening.
I am never one to spoil a book other than to say – for a lighthearted romance that is truly a fantasy, pick this one up. The length of this novella was just right in bringing together two people who already had feelings for each other, they just needed some assistance. Yes, this could be made into a lengthy book, but it was great as a novella, too. Either way, I loved it. I will be looking for more Pam Binder books.
C.C. (better known as Cinderella Charming) is an assistant working for the sexy football star Michael. Michael is engaged to Super Model Tatiana who is going through a divorce. In order for Michael to get a part in a movie, he needs to show that he is settling down. Harold, Michael's best friend, has arranged the perfect plan. He arranges for C.C. and Michael to get "fake married". The Matchmaker Sisters see something no one else sees, Michael loves C.C.. So the sisters arranged for them to travel back in time, to help them bond. Will there plan work? Can Michael and C.C. beat all the odds against them?
This story was so sweet and exciting. I really enjoyed the tale. It was a romantic story like it has never been told before. I loved the going back in time to help love bloom. Such a cute concept. The characters were sweet and caring. And there was an opening left for another story. I am interested in seeing how this series will continue. I loved the authors take on romance and she seems to have a great road paved for a brilliant series.
I was given this book for an honest review.
