At the Stroke of Midnight is the first book in Tara Sivec’s new Naughty Princess Club series. These books are all going to focus on different women – I say couples, but let’s be honest, the ladies rule this kingdom – and could technically be read as stand-alones, but after reading this book, I can’t see how you wouldn’t want to read them all in order, since you get to know the other two princesses so well in it. At the Stroke of Midnight is written in first person perspective, from our fabulous heroine’s point of view.
My absolutely favorite part of this book wasn’t the romance between the heroine and her Prince Charming; it was the love story between the heroine and herself. She grew so much from the woman in the first chapter to the take-charge, brazen broad who she proved herself to be in the final chapter. Watching her shed her Stepford wife persona was fantastic; watching the effect her transformation had on the people who cared for her was everything. So, yes, the romance was great, but not the reason I loved this book so much.
While Cin was the shining star of this show – as well she should be – I’d be remiss to completely neglect her prince. I loved how he was with her. Knowing when to push her, and just how hard to do it. Supporting her completely in all her choices. He very much lived up to anything I could hope for a woman who’d been dealt the cards our Cindy had been playing.
While I’d always heard about how amazing Tara Sivec’s romcoms were, I’d never picked one up; I’d assumed I wouldn’t care for them because it’s not a genre I generally care for. Wow. If this book is in keeping with her other comedies I was sorely mistaken. At the Stroke of Midnight was smart, empowering, and a lot deeper than I would have ever guessed. I’d always loved her heavy, heart-wrenching books, but I think I’ll be adding her romcoms to my reading repertoire.
I will never be able to look at Disney princesses in the same way again! Princes either, considering PJ is a prince himself.
The best thing about this book is the characters. As always, Tara gives us a band of characters that we fall in love with instantly. How can we not? Hot, swoony-worthy men, and spunky, strong women.
This is one is a little angsty, feisty, emotional, and a lot of funny. From the characters to the plot, I didn't want to put it down. This book will make you believe in real life fairy tales.
I also sometimes felt like the jokes and one-lines were forced rather than natural parts is the conversation.
The story should have been researched better. I've never heard of a strip club that PAYS its dancers. From my own experience as an exotic dancer and from talking to many many others, the only thing I've heard of (in the U.S. anyway) is the dancers paying a portion of their tips to the club and usually also a part of every lap dance.
Finally, and this is a slight spoiler, but the stuff with Melissa, the 'threat', was just kind of unnecessarily tossed in there. It would not really harm the story to leave her out, or at least make her a catty stripper, because all those friendly, willing to help their competition strippers are a LIE. Exotic dancing is an extremely competitive job and dancers are often wary of helping each other out because it can so often be "every woman for herself." The princesses are far more likely to face jealous, back-stabbing competition than other dancers literally squealing to help them out.
