I’m a walking contradiction.School principal who liberally drops the F bomb.Fiercely independent yet willing to auction myself off for charity.Serial monogamist who’s down for a no-strings one-night stand.
Except now I’ve gone from one-working-ovary to co-parent in the time it took a stick to turn blue.
Ian Donovan may be a richer-than-hell venture capitalist, but he’s no Prince Charming ready to sweep me off my feet. Good thing I don’t need him. I’ve been doing fine on my own for forty years, and I’m not about to start changing that now.
Ultrasounds, swollen feet, midnight cravings? Bring. It. On.
But why is it when you finally swear off men, you meet one who’s too sexy—and determined we can make it work?
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Get ready to laugh your butt off with Knocked-Up Cinderella, a chic-lit-ish contemporary romance.
Erin is 40, recently single and killing it as the new principal at a private elementary school. She loves what she does, but now it also includes schmoozing and fund-raising and that’s how she finds herself dressed as Cinderella and ready to be auctioned off for a date.
Ian is a workaholic. He only has time for work, work and his two best friends who also happen to be his business partners. Against his better judgement, he finds himself being charmed by Erin’s quirkiness, uniqueness and sense of humor. But after one hot as eff (and mostly fade to black) hook up later… well, things are going to get messy.
Erin was great. She dressed as an 80’s pop diva forever stuck in a music video and totally owned it. She was smart and funny, caring and sweet and I just loved her. Ian was charming and sexy, and when he wasn’t actively thinking about his issues he was the best. If it wasn’t because he manages to knock-up Erin from the get-go, I’d wonder if he really had balls. Man, could that guy second-guess himself! Fortunately, he eventually does manage to find his testicles while removing his head from his posterior, which made me deliriously happy.
I really enjoyed this story, it was funny and fresh and even though I wanted to slap some sense into Ian more than once I loved him and Erin as a couple. I smiled and laughed, and although there’s no sexplicity, their chemistry was amazing and they have some really steamy and downright hot scenes.
Knocked-Up Cinderella was a super fun read and I wouldn’t mind getting acquainted with more of this new to me author’s work at all.
