- The twist of gender 5
- JAB 11/16/2015 2 people found the following review helpful
Everyone is so used to the usual cinderella and her prince charming. The poor girl and the pretty boy. This is why I loved this book because of the gender switch of it being a boy in rags and a princess looking for the one. I like the hero has a scruffy outfit but a heart of gold, for example, he saves the fairy godfather( a high society men's clothes boutique owner), volunteers his time at a center, and puts his 100% percent of his effort into his writing. I like the heroine for a lot of things because she assumes the role of the male character in the typical harlequin books: cold, calm, powerful, and she evens pulls the same stunt as the male heroines and makes a big mistake against the hero/ typical heroine it is really good. They met at a party after the hero has been bedazzled by the shopkeeper and they get away for the night. After sex, the hero rushes out, out the leaving behind a cowboy boot, which is ironic because he's originally from Texas. I liked seeing the perspective of both hero and heroine. That's what made it more fun. It's also interesting of how it's the heroine who instigates the having sex with the hero. This is fresh and new. It's interesting to see how the two progress when the heroine and looking for the hero. I like how the fairy godfather gets to heroine to go after the hero and see the place where he volunteers and the impacts that it was on her. I liked how they learned things about each other before the heroine learned the truth. The ending was great because it's not a happily ever after tale but a tale of real love.
