Review: Operation Cinderella (Suddenly Cinderella #1) by Hope Tarr

Blurb from Goodreads:

Manhattan magazine editor Macie Graham always gets her story—and she’ll do anything to uncover the dirt on famous radio personality Ross Mannon. After he smears her article on his show, nearly costing Macie her job, she devises a plan to masquerade as a modern-day Cinderella and get her revenge on the infuriating Texan.

All Ross wants is a woman with old-fashioned values to be his housekeeper and role model for his troubled teenage daughter. When the perfect woman shows up, Ross is relieved—until he finds himself drawn to his gorgeous, red-stiletto-wearing new employee. “Martha Jane” is opinionated and sexy, and Ross is intrigued…and more than a little turned on.

Macie thought Operation Cinderella was foolproof, but Ross, with his rugged good looks and southern charm, proves to be as perfect behind-the-scenes as he does in public. But when she finally uncovers a secret that could destroy Ross's reputation, she faces losing her job or losing the fairy-tale ending she didn't even know she wanted.


My Review:


Generally, I love all Entangled books - both YA and romances of all kinds. This book was no exception but I was a little let down because I was so excited to read it after reading the premise. Macie/Martha Jane was a great character and I thought she was well developed. And as the story progressed, I was definitely rooting for Macie and Ross . . .but the heat just wasn't there. I think they had a great friendship and there was such potential for their chemistry but it never got off the ground. I don't doubt their relationship and I think the book ended where it should but I guess I was just expecting a little more romance and steam, considering it was Entangled. Regardless, if you want an old fashioned romance, this is your book! Just don't expect any steamy scenes and be prepared for a little deception.


I am looking forward to the continuation of this series, especially Stephanie's story.

  1. Hello! Waving! I don't see GFC of anything here to follow you but I got you on twitter. I know what you mean about Entangled, but sometimes it is nice to just read romance and not have a ton of steam. Glad this was good overall.

I love this trope, sub-genre, setting: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend

I Love This Trope, Sub-Genre, Setting is a new feature on my blog in which I discuss a trope, sub-genre or setting that I love and tell you about books that are shining examples of said trope, sub-genre or setting.  Feel free to play along and please let me know about your favorite books in this realm and whether you like this trope, sub-genre and/or setting as much as I do! Today I am spotlighting the trope of: My Best Friend's Brother/My Brother's Best Friend, which I would define as any book where the heroine either has a crush on or falls for her brother's best friend or her best friend's brother.

I have to confess that I love this trope in nearly all of its iterations!  I have a younger brother so I never got to crush on any of his friends but it's fun reading about that and it's equally as fun as reading about falling for your best friend's brother -- instant sisters!  I know there are a ton of books that I'm missing/haven't read so please let m…
