So, too is our heroine, Alexa,on a time clock living a temporarily charmed life while housesitting for her wealthy stepsister in her luxurious apartment, going out in her designer clothes and shoes. Alexa is naturally beautiful, charming and witty. Her designer attire gives her an air of confidence and she shines like a star, or "a beautiful silvery fawn" as she is later alluded to in love story created by her "Captain".
Our "fly boy" Captain Jagger McCann is quite something else. He is quite the lover whose glorious anatomy and reputation for his sensual skills precede him as a rule. He is 100% Alpha and a loves to hunt for his conquests assured there is no one who can resist his charm and prowess.
Of course the chemistry is potent when these two meet and the sex is sensational for both. Alexa keeping herself rooted in her reality makes a deal for a "one and done" encounter.
Something beyond "one and done" happened to both of them and Jagger touched unwittingly by this magic connection finally decides to get Alexa's phone number before she whisks herself right out of his room and his life. However, our Captain is no prince charming at first. Their connection is tenuous and primarily physical at first. As they spend more time together, the Captain begins to realize that his desires are changing and he truly enjoys Alexa as a person, someone with whom to simply spend some time.
Alexa teasingly asks him to tell her a love story. His first story was a bit of a "fail". But then as he is flying private jets around the world and talking to Alexa on the phone, his stories begin to take on more and more themes of true love and these stories allude to what is happening between Alexa and him.
Ms. Alice May Ball creates these intriguing "mise en abymes" in the narrative of the Captain. I just loved this creativity. And just as the prince searches far and wide for his Cinderella, the Captain through his storytelling is searching for the heart of his love, Alexa (even when he did not know it).
The reader is in for a treat with this author's unique turn of phrase. The English is not pure American. There is a hint of something foreign. Even though the phrasing is not usual to the ear, the syntax is correct. I will say, that the typos do mar the beauty of the language somewhat and it is such a correctable error. I strongly encourage this author to do something about this.
There is a genuine sexiness and some passages can melt your kindle or whatever device on which you read it. The erotica is beautiful and moving. The last scene is quite something else. It is worth the price of admission. The author managed to add modern day reality and sizzling erotica to a cherished fairy tale while keeping the beauty and fantasy alive. Moreover, one of the important themes of the Cinderella fairytale is given center stage for the message it delivers. When your true love finds you, he will love you for you. This is the fantasy that you should bring to reality. Settle for nothing less.
I rate this book at 4.5. I always round up because of my respect for writers. I was given a ARC of this book. I loved it so, I purchased it. My thoughts and feelings are always my own. There are actually two books in this edition. A very nice value of sexy love story entertainment available in one click.
It was nice that both leads were not the typical main leads for a Cinderella fairy tale and the intriguing story had its own plot. Characters were very modern. I really liked them as they grew/change as the tale progressed. They may have started out a bit rough around the edges, no Disney wannabe here, yet they became more intimate, touching, and endearing.
Once the final words were read, I knew this was a special modern day fairy tale and I needed to one click it even though I received an Advanced Readers Copy for a review. There are aspects I still ponder. Later I will go back and reread this tale, because that’s what one does with a good fairy tale.
I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.
Cinderella is one of my favorite fairytales. I was super excited to see how Cinderella was incorporated here. I definitely liked that the Cinderella part wasn't too overly used here because Cinderella's backstory and circumstances are always so harsh and sad. I loved that here it subtle. I love Jagger, he seems like just a typical flyboy but there is more to him. Alexa really brings that other side to him. I love his stories and was captivated by his imagination. I definitely recommend others to reading this book.
I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book.
