Winston Constantine is no prince charming…
I crave him so badly I think I might be losing my mind. He’s right in front of me, but he’s just as remote as my dreams of getting away from my stepbrothers. I keep playing his twisted games, and I want to stay just as distant as he is. But I can’t. I never could. I’ve fallen for him. Hopelessly. Irrevocably.
But Winston isn’t a lover, he’s a business venture.
A way for me to pay for college.
A ticket out.
He’s never pretended to be anything other than that.
I can’t blame him for making me fall in love.
There can be no happily ever after between a maid and a prince, no matter what the stories say.
Series: Cinderella #2
My Rating: ★★★
We pick up where we left off with book one- going to the ball. We thought Winston was crazy rough in the first book and boy did he come out swinging in this one to protect his girl. I love that his younger siblings rallied to help her too- even though he was too busy denying his feelings. Ash is caught between a rock and a hard place trying to protect her man and trying to be honest.
I don’t get that shit. Someone tells you that if you tell, then they’ll hurt you. Why not tell the other person that they have to pretend not to know while you guys come up with a plan? Also, how the hell does Ash think she’s going to get up out of under the Morelli thumb by herself when she can’t handle the terror triplets? What’s Tate’s deal? What’s her Win’s mother’s deal? As you can see,
While I thoroughly enjoyed this story, not a lot happened in the story except Win’s constant denial of his feelings, Ash’s amazing banter and sweetness. I mean Manda’s defense of her terrible sons is crazy to me and Ash’s dad could be a better father. I don’t know, but I do know as soon as it hit my kindle I was 54% into another book, which I dropped immediately to read it. That cliff-hanger…I really pray Win listens to Ash before he loses his shit.
I honestly didn’t realize this was a trilogy, so imagine my surprise and annoyance when I realize there’s a book three and to think it won’t come out till APRIL!!!!
