A Cinderella re-telling updated for the ages. Sweet romance that grabs you with a little spice to make it nice.
Oh, poor dear child. Cindy just is too sweet for her own good. Having given up everything to move to Hollywood, Cindy works her stepmom’s dry cleaner business while altering garmets in the back. Her two stepsisters aren’t exactly working, instead they are trying to be the next biggest star. So life isn’t exactly horrible, but it could use an upgrade. When Cindy is given tickets charity party, she grabs her dress and decides to enjoy every moment. Never expecting to dance with a true prince.
Tommy Prince is Hollywood’s darling hero, but one that is jaded on all the glitz and glamour. Dancing with a beauty, he doesn’t even know her name, he becomes infatuated with the woman who finds joy in little things around her. When a date with her is auctioned off for the charity, he doesn’t think twice about outbidding them all.
The date is very contained and not up for their choice. Suddenly they are ski diving with very little time to talk, let alone exchange more than first names. Cindy knows she is out of her league, but captures all the fun in the event before dashing away, leaving Tommy to try to find her at the dry cleaners… not knowing that is actually where she works. Now her step-family has their talons in Tommy along with a reality show that is painting Cindy in a bad light.
This was both silly, innocent, facinating, fun and shake your head worthy reading. Sometimes I just need this type of stories. Cindy learns to stand on her own two feet and actully not have to worry about those who don’t have her own interest in mind. Then there is Tommy who bows to his managers wishes to win an Oscar finally figures out that he was only acting on a bet made as a teen. Both grow from the beginning, but they both learn each one is geniune to who they are inside.
The issues were mostly external from bets with his siblings to the step-family having a reality show that stalks your life. Attraction never seemed to be a problem and even trust to each other was strong from the get-go. These two just needed to figure out what truly mattered and decide to go for it. And when they did, wowza. A great little story that renewed my faith in humans.
