Title: Cinderella Screwed Me Over
Author: Cindi Madsen
Publication Date: October 22nd, 2013
Synopsis: Darby Quinn has a bone to pick with Cinderella. Burned one too many times by ex-boyfriends, Darby has lost all belief in the happily-ever-after that the fairy-tale princess promised her. She’s sworn off love, Prince Charmings, and happy endings and she’s happy about it. Really. Or at least she was…until she met Jake, her gorgeous neighbor and the manager of her favorite restaurant. But Darby has rules about dating, ones she’s culled from her years spent with so-called “princes,” and starting something with Jake would break all of them.
Charming, fun, and unwilling to give up on her, Jake doesn’t fit any of the profiles Darby has created from her case studies of ex-princes-gone-bad. Finally presented with her own Prince Charming, can Darby take a chance on a happily-ever-after?
Full of wit and sarcastic humor, Cinderella Screwed Me Over proves that sometimes the perfect love, like a perfect pair of shoes, is just within your grasp.
Review: I really didn’t enjoy this book and was disappointed with it. I had no real interest in any of the characters. Sure Darby had some bad relationships, but who hasn’t? I felt like she was taking her ‘dating rules’ to the extreme and instead of learning things from her past relationships she used them as excuses to push Jake away. As for Jake, I’m honestly surprised that he let her string him along like he did. She was constantly sending him mixed signals, one minute she was hot, then she was cold.
Recommendation: Nah, skip it.
