His Cinderella isn’t looking for a fairy tale…

Alicia Forkes went to a trendy club looking for a way to forget her troubles, and she found that in the arms of the gorgeous man who swept her off of her feet…and into one of the hottest encounters she’d ever had in her life. Awesome sex with a stranger is now something she can check off her bucket list.

Except he isn’t exactly a stranger. He’s the guy who broke her heart when they were teens, an experience she doesn’t plan on repeating.

Prince Leo can’t believe he’s finally found the woman he’s loved for years, and she wants nothing to do with him. When she shows up at his office, she looks anything but princess-like. In fact, she’s cursing him to hell and back. She may not be Cinderella, but he’s determined to prove he’s the prince for her––even if it means letting her go.

4 “Bucket List” Stars!

The Review: 
I really enjoyed this read! It was light and fun in all the right places and held just a small bit of angsts in other places. It had a wonderful, push-pull with a great sexy, romance.

Alicia Forkes is visiting the country of Randovian, in hopes of securing a military contract with their king. Upon arrival, she decides to check off one of the items on the bucket list her and her best friend, Brian, prepared before he tragically died of cancer. The item? Have sex with a stranger and then ditch him. She ventures into a masked club hoping to find a man who will help her check this item off before she can chicken out. And she does...

But her past is about to catch up with her.

The opening chapters has me hooked with a cute spin on the Cinderella story! It was thrilling and adventurous and a little bit quirky as Alicia tries to shed her shyness and take charge to complete one more item on her bucket list.

Unbeknownst to her, her one night stand is the one man she never wanted to see again. Leo and Alicia were childhood sweethearts and she believes he’s betrayed her when she needed him most. Watching these two fight their sexual tension and the magnetic pull they had towards one another, and then watching them fall sweetly and slowly in love once again was exciting and fun! I enjoyed Leo’s passion and dedication to his country and to Alicia, as he was determined to win her over once again while still remaining true to his path in life. He was smart, sexy, compassionate, competent and genuine. 

For the most part, I enjoyed Alicia’s character as well. She was smart and sassy but she was also a little bit broken by her past. And even though she had built walls to protect herself, I did think she was a little too judgmental and closed off. I felt her resistance to listening to Leo at all, even when she felt he was telling the truth, made her too stubborn.

But...As much as I enjoyed this read, I wanted “more”...
I wish we had gotten more on Leo and Alicia’s past. We get hints to their sweet childhood summer romance and we get hints as to what life held for them once they were separated but I would have loved to have gotten flashbacks or a solid story to Alicia’s struggles when her father died. Instead we only get bits and pieces and very few details. Maybe if the story delved deeper, I would have connected with her more.

The Wrap Up: 
This was a quick, sweet, romantic story with a strong minded heroine and a compassionate and capable hero. It wasn’t too involved or emotional which made it a perfect afternoon read!

Beauty is about to tame her beast...

Researcher Maggie Donovan has no luck with men, and it doesn't help that she can't keep her eyes off of her sexy boss - the one everyone else in the office calls The Beast. Relationships in the office are forbidden. So no one is more surprised than Maggie when she pretends to be his fiancée to save him during a difficult situation. Not only has she put her job on the line, but the future of the company.

Billionaire Benjamin Gale III doesn't believe in love or romance, but the look on his mother's face when Maggie tells her that she's his fiancée is worth millions. Instead of firing her for her insubordination, he goes along with the ruse. In his arms-and in his bed-she'd be everything he could ever want…which is why he can't have her.

But if he doesn't let her go, they'll lose everything…
