At The Stroke of Midnight by Tara Sivec
Published: February 28, 2018
I purchased this book on Amazon.
Tara Sivec is a USA Today best-selling author, wife, mother, chauffeur, maid, short-order cook, baby-sitter, and sarcasm expert. She lives in Ohio with her husband and two children and looks forward to the day when all three of them become adults and move out.
“I’m gonna keep on calling you Cin because what you just did to me was sinful!”
Cynthia thought she had a charmed life. Until her husband left with the babysitter and all the money, now she is broke, on the verge of losing everything and lost. Until a loud stranger barges in and helps open her eyes.
This is not the fairytale your grandmother read you before bed, kids! I loved Tara’s spin on Cinderella. I loved Cynthia; and her journey to finding herself. I loved Ariel and her fiery personality and her bold fearlessness. And Isabelle, the sweet librarian who splits random facts when she’s nervous.
This is such a fun, steamy, sassy, and charming take on a classic fairytale. I loved the dancer appreciation throughout this book. The positive reinforcement was beautiful, and I loved how sensuality was intertwined through this story.
A dream is a wish your heart makes, and luckily no one turned into a pumpkin at midnight.
