Can the fairy tale bring Charlotte the happiness she’s looking for, or was he always there to begin with?
A modern, reimagined Cinderella story.
When aspiring author Charlotte Kingsley finally gets published, she thinks all her dreams have come true. But the trouble begins when her publicity firm reinvents her quirky online presence into a perfectly curated dream life. Gone are the days of sweatpant posts and ice cream binges with her best friend, Anders, replaced instead with beautiful clothes, orchestrated selfies, and no boyfriend. Only, that carefully curated fairy tale life is ruining her self-esteem and making her feel like a fraud.
When a bestselling author takes Charlotte under her wing—almost like a fairy godmother—she helps Charlotte see the beautiful person she already is and the worth of being authentic. But is it too late to save her relationship with Anders? The clock is quickly ticking towards midnight, and Charlotte must decide between her fairy tale life and the man she loves, before he's gone forever.
This is a contemporary romance by Julie Wright.
This book really sucks you in and lets you get your mind off your troubles for just a little while.
Basic premise: aspiring author finally writes something worthy to be published and she lets the social media aspect over rule her heart. This is a friends to love romance. The relationship is very special and when it turns into more feelings, this is when Lettie tries to push Anders away a little to make it look to the world like she is a single girl.
You knew almost from the beginning that Lettie’s giving into Toni the PR gal would come back to bite her at some point. The climax of this was pretty good and I really enjoyed myself while reading it.
I always like a happily ever after tale. This one really tugs at your heart strings.
If you like this type of book and want to read a good friend to love romance, definitely check this one out. You won’t be disappointed.
