After the Stroke of Midnight: A Steamy Cinderella Story by Jennifer Lewis
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
This is the fifth story in Once Upon A Fairy Tale: A Collection of 11 Fairy Tale Inspired Romances; which I obtained from NetGalley in exchange for feedback and a review.
This Cinderella story just didn't enchant me. There is no feeling of magic or fantasy in it; it is truly steeped in the mundane world. Cinderella has no glass slipper here just a dirty tennis shoe. The magic that transformers her is nothing more than makeup and color contact lenses. Her prince is just some rich dude.
It is a full length story and is reasonably well written and plotted; but I honestly found it boring. If you enjoy Harlequin Presents type romances this will probably be right up your alley. In fact after checking, I see that this author has published quite a few books through Harlequin imprints in the past.
