Finding Cinderella by Colleen Hoover

Book Description:

Published: November 14, 2013

A chance encounter in the dark leads eighteen-year-old Daniel and the girl who stumbles across him to profess their love for each other. But this love comes with conditions: they agree it will only last one hour and it will only be make-believe.

When their hour is up and the girl rushes off like Cinderella, Daniel tries to convince himself that what happened between them only seemed perfect because they were pretending it was perfect. Moments like that with girls like her don’t happen outside of fairytales.

One year and one bad relationship later, his disbelief in insta-love is stripped away the day he meets Six: a girl with a strange name and an even stranger personality. Daniel soon realizes the way he pretended to feel about Cinderella and the way he really feels about Six may not be so different after all. Especially when the two loves of his life end up being one in the same.

Unfortunately for Daniel, finding Cinderella doesn’t guarantee their happily ever after…it only further threatens it.

Review –

I rated this book five stars *****    because once I started listening I couldn’t stop and the chemistry between the nameless boy and girl in the school maintenance closet was so intense especially on their last day together.  A year passes.

THEN Daniel meets Six (love the name) and he falls instantly and she does too. Their talks back and forth are so cute and  it made me remember the  shyness involved in early relationships in school and college. There is nothing sweeter than the innocence of a first relationship and it really comes across in this book.

Of course, when Daniel discovers that Six is his Cinderella from the broom closet he thinks she will be as thrilled as he is, but she is horribly wounded by the information and can’t even look him in the face.  I will not tell you the secret she has kept since Italy but suffice it to say to it takes time for both Six and Daniel to come to the realization that they are better together than apart.

This is a story about best friends, young love,secrets, and relationships between boys and girls, children and parents and I loved it and cried (of course) at just  the right times.  Loved this book.

Fever (Club Inferno #3) by Jamie K. Schmidt

Book Description:

Published: March 17, 2015

Deep in the shadows of her exclusive fashion resort, Couture, Colleen Bryant presides over a much more intimate world: Club Inferno. The successful businesswoman and sex instructor has built an empire that caters to the BDSM elite, but now she finds herself longing for something a bit more ordinary: a man to love. She’s not sure how to find someone who will accept what she does for a living—or the kinks that drive her wild—until her old flame, ex-pro football player Chase Fairwood, comes back in her life.

There’s no woman as hot, sexy, or exciting as Colleen—and Chase knows it. He also knows he’s man enough to play her games, and to give as good as he gets. His return to Club Inferno reignites Colleen’s scorching demands, along with a new determination to test his resolve. Soon he’s competing against a rival Dom to brand Colleen as his own. But Chase has a secret weapon: the burning desire to offer his body—and his heart—in sweet surrender.

Review –

The only thing different about this book is that it’s the first one I’ve read where a female is the dominant and the one with the fame and fortune. Other than that, it’s just the same old story about a Dom and a sub with a bit of high fashion couture thrown in. Only gave it three stars ***

Tamed (Club Sin #5) by Stacey Kennedy

Book Description:

Published: March 10, 2015

Porter Marshall has nearly achieved his goal of becoming a Club Sin Master, but his new sub poses a much bigger challenge than he anticipated. Despite their mutual attraction and red-hot dungeon sessions, Kenzie Hart plays her own games. Her bratty, you-can’t-break-me attitude masks terrible personal hurt—pain that only the exquisite touch of a skilled Dom can release. But when Porter suggests taking their connection to the outside world, Kenzie denies him . . . which only makes him want her more.

Kenzie can’t ignore the raw, fierce bond she has with Porter. But she can’t give in to his dangerous demands, either. Is the passion they share real, or is he using her to solidify his status at Club Sin? And yet, who else can she trust with the shattering secrets she holds within? As Porter expertly brings her to the point of no return, Kenzie surrenders her body—and, piece by piece, her heart.

Review –

Nothing really special about this erotic romance because it’s just a re-telling of the dominant Dom meeting the bratty sub and finally bending her to his will.
