Cinderella in the Sheets Kindle Edition
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Presley is earnest with a desire to do whatever he can to help those without a voice be heard. He's not some privileged kid who wants to speak up for those who aren't [insert derogatory/disparaging remark here] than him because he feels entitled to do it. Presley seems to feel a real drive to speak up, speak out, speak to anyone who'll listen because he loved learning and he loves doing all he can with what he's aware he's been lucky to be given.
It's nice to read about a privileged guy who knows how lucky he is without being unrealistically humble over everything.
Louis was a nice surprise since I was half-hoping he'd turn out to be someone wildly inappropriate only to find I liked his real reveal much more. I loved his story, his truth, and his award was very well-deserved. I only wish someone was winning the award for that exact reason now in the world we do live in.
Overall, Cinderella in the Sheets was a surprisingly sweet short with a lot of heart to go with the heaps of heat it had to base itself on. I can't wait to read more from Reece Pine. I originally received my copy free from the Don't Buy My Love review program on the M/M Romance Group on GoodReads, but I loved the story enough I bought my own copy for my permanent library.
There's a pleasing cadence to Pine’s writing style, just a quick example:
”The low hubbub of tipsy tourists clawing their way along the walls back to their rooms sounded far away, on other floors. Everything was otherwise as peaceful and still as 1 a.m. ever was, anywhere.”
Isn’t that nice? The author has a unique and fresh way of phrasing things which drew me in, and before I knew it I was almost at the end of the story.
A good part of the book is about the relationships Presley has with the supporting characters. These guys all have their own stories going on which were interesting and left me wanting more (if they don’t already, maybe Rico and Earle will get their own book?). I also liked the way the step-dad is described and then maintains his place in the background… that worked really well. It’s clear Pine knows these characters really well.
Just as an aside, I love it when a book starts out with a really hot physical relationship and then grows the story from there - it’s one of my favorite tropes and Cinderella in the Sheets totally pulls it off.
I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for a quick moving, creative, low-angst romance. It is well written and I’m looking forward to reading more by Reesce Pine.
*I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review through Goodreads.*
I am pretty surprised at the low ratings for this book. Yeah it's not perfect, but it was a cute quick read that I was satisfied with. The characters were sweet and I got a sense of the love and camaraderie that they had for one another - especially Presley and his secret service guys. Overall, it matched the synopsis and it added to a leisurely afternoon.
Like the title suggests, the story loosely follows the Cinderella storyline except its set in the 21st century and features two 20-something year old guys. Loved it.
If mistaken identities are your thing, then I would definitely give this book a go. There was plenty of angsty scenes where Presley was unsure of whether he would find his mystery guy and some dead ends that were just... Plus, the side characters were interesting enough on their own which I always love to see. It added some variety to the plot.
