Now all bets are off.
*** Standalone Urban Fantasy twist on Cinderella with Fae, and magic, and a slow burn romance.
MY REVIEW – 4 stars
Cinderella and Fae Charming is a cute fantasy romance with a more modern flare.
Imagine if Cinderella had been fae, along with everyone else in the story… that’s exactly what Amelia Shaw did with this cute fairytale retelling. I loved the Shawna learned how to save herself instead of relying on the prince to swoop in and rescue her. She was a strong character, even though she had her flaws. The prince was dashing, and a bit arrogant, but what else would you expect from a fae prince?
The pacing for the first 70% of the story held steady. The last 30% had a more rushed feeling to it. I would have enjoyed a bit more storyline between the ball and the ending.
Super cute book! Perfect for those preferring a more moderate heat level.
