Book Description: Only one woman’s foot will fit this size 11 1/2 glass slipper…
Billionaire CEO AJ wants nothing more than to just get away from his busy life. So when he goes to an employee’s wedding and meets a beautiful girl, he feels like he can lose himself to her. Despite an intense night of passion, he wakes up in an empty bed. The only clue he has to find his Cinderella? A glass slipper and two handwritten lines on a note, fished out of a dumpster and almost unreadable…
When responsible Kat lets her hair down for one night, she meets a gorgeous stranger who really likes the new her. After an enchanting evening together, Kat gets an early morning call into work by a panicked boss. Knowing that she must see him again, she leaves a letter for the sleeping hunk and signs it, “Yours Truly, Kat,” not realizing that’s the only part of the note that will survive. However, there are other consequences to her night of fun, especially when she finally meets up with her one-night-stand…
What if AJ is actually her company’s CEO?
Captivation: What a neat version of Cinderella. I genuinely liked the characters and the story as a whole.
Sizzle: Lakes does a really rather fantastic job writing the intimacy scenes for this book, not shirking with details, but not pushing the novel into the erotica category. Some pretty good spine-tingling scenes.
Romance: The story is a sweet, shorter romance. The characters are relatable, likeable, and entertaining.
Enjoyment: I enjoyed this book. It was a sweet romantic book.
Literacy: Lakes uses a strange combination of awkward similes. There are editing errors quite frequently with missing or incorrect words. The similes are the major contention with this rating, however. Some of them just plain do not make sense to the context.
Overall, I really enjoy this book, Lakes’ books were a pleasant surprise, good reads when one wants sweet romance without too much drama.
