About the Author

When I was a kid, there was only one thing I wanted to be:a superhero. Sure, every kid loves Batman, wishes to soar like Superman, and wants an invisible plane like Wonder Woman's (though I really wanted her ability to see it), but I wanted more than to watch and hang out with superheroes. I wanted to be one. So, I practiced my boxing skills while saying things like, "POW! Take that evil doer!" and I honed the skill of changing into costumes while in phone booths (to the great horror of my parents). But there came a day when my dreams were dashed--the day I realized being a klutz was not, in fact a super power, and my super-weakness for anything bright and shiny meant a magpie could easily defeat me in a test of wills. These days, I don't get to orbit space stations (and thank God, because I get motion sick on a merry-go-round), but I still get to wear the capes, leotards, and say things like, "Stand aside! This job calls for Writer Girl!"

A book title like Sneakers, Sandals, and Stilettoes is sure to attract the attention of ladies everywhere, and readers won't be disappointed. Fairy-tales for the well-heeled woman-in-you princess is a delightful concept. Deen superbly delivers with the kind of wit and hilarity that leaves chuckles echoing, even after the book is put down.

The very nature of a fairy tale means anything can happen. Dreams can come true but the path to happiness is sure to be fraught with unexpected twists, earth-shattering disasters, and curses that seem irreversible!

Sneakers, Sandals, and Stilettoes contains two stories--The Genie's Curse and Shoe-in for Love. With a deft skill for weaving original romantic comedy, Deen places her romantically-inclined characters in situations more frustrating than the most lovelorn woman will likely ever have to endure. Her use of language lures readers to a place where they will be happily perplexed--pleased to read such unpredictable stories yet wondering how fairy-tale endings could ever result.

But with splendid style, Deen presents solutions that startle and astonish. And as if writing a compelling narrative is not enough, she delivers laugh-out-loud humor that saw me reading passages aloud to my husband and raving about the book to friends.

Five stars to Natasha Deen for Sneakers, Sandals, and Stilettoes.

The characters in this book jump off the page, grab you by the throat, and drag you into their world. The author has created a fun, flirty story that will have you coming back for more. A great summer read.

I wanted to read something light but guess I'm just not cut out for a good rom com. I read about half of the first story. None of it seemed funny, like others have found. To me, the writing seemed bland and the story uninteresting, no emotional impact. I think from the previous reviews that others were well entertained by the book, so don't take my review to heart, give this book a try.

Sneaker, Sandals & Stilettoes: Fairy Tales for the Well-Heeled Princess sounded so original and refreshing that I couldn’t wait to read a romantic comedy that would make me laugh and go “ahhhh” at the end (kind of like when you look at baby pictures). Instead I felt myself saying… “WTF” quite a few times. For instances, for whatever reason I believed there would be more than two short stories; there isn’t, so it was kind of like waiting for all my gifts at Christmas and getting an Amazon gift card. Yeah, I could use the gift card, but I kind of expected more than that.

The first story is Genie’s Curse. This story was simply ludicrous. It wasn’t ridiculous because the heroine is turned into a dog for wishing “she were in Dillon’s arms”. It’s ridiculous because 1) her name is Agnes Frump (why not just call her Ugly Betty) and 2) when she is transformed back into herself in front of her “dream lover” Dillon, his reaction is “hey, how’s it going? So glad you’re not a dog anymore. Did you know I’ve always loved you?” I guess I should have been forewarned when the word Fairy Tales was used in the title, but the title also said for “the Well-Heeled Princess” and I don’t know any well-heeled Princess who would fall for that storyline (no pun intended).

The second story was Shoe In Love. Although I preferred this story over Genie’s Curse, there were some blaring flaws. For instance, the setting is 1984 fashion industry. I know this will age me, but I was there in 1984 and there was none of the mannerism or colloquialism of the era. There was none of the fashion. Why set it in 1984 if you aren’t going to incorporate these things? Yes, certain designers from the 80’s were mentioned, but who cares?

Cute stories, and I liked the characters - my only complaint (and the only reason that this is a 4 star instead of 5) is that we didn't get ENOUGH of the characters or story. The first story in this kindle collection is a twist on Aladdin's Lamp, with a woman and her sexy neighbor. The storyline is a little far-fetched, even for romantic fiction, but I was able to play along. However, we didn't learn much about the character's themselves... in fact, we learn more about Aggie from her neighbor Dillon's dialogue. And we don't learn much about Dillon at all, except that apparently he's handsome, rich, and can cook.... well, I guess that I'd take him too! Overall, though, the story felt rushed and it would have been more interesting to me to see more development in the characters.

The second story features Nessie and The Lumberjack. Nessie (short for Vanessa) is a gifted designer who has a bitch for an immediate supervisor, Grace. Or as they call her when she's not around, Graceless. Grace not only claims Nessie's shoe designs for her own, but she has a smear campaign going as well: claiming the Nessie slept her way into the job and is apparently willing to do so again to stay hired. Luckily, Leo (the new boss - aka The Lumberjack, since he apparently chops down jobs when taking over a company) happened to conveniently overhear Nessie and her sister speaking early in the story, so he knows what's really going on. I liked the plot and characters in this story better, though I would have liked more to the ending (it seemed really rushed) and I would have liked to learn more about Leo himself.

Fun, quick reads, and I'd love to see Leo & Nessie's story expanded out to a full length book instead of just a short story.
