Half-fae Ember craves freedom from her conniving stepfamily. As if they weren't enough to deal with, a chance encounter with the arrogant Prince Franco leaves her humiliated and in a fiery rage. Nothing could convince her the prince is anything but a rake. But when the opportunity to evade her scheming stepmother falls into her lap, she'll pay the price-even if it means impersonating the prince's newest flame ... To prove himself a worthy heir, Prince Franco must marry a princess. But after far too many unsatisfying trysts, he's given up on love. With the social season in full swing, and bringing with it a horde of husband-hungry socialites, he'll do anything to delay the pressures of both marriage and the crown. And what better solution than an alliance with a desperate servant girl glamoured as his false future bride? Locked in a bargain, Ember must pose as a princess until midnight at the full moon ball. Until then, all she has to do is wear the glamour, pretend to court the prince, and above all else, not fall in love. But when feelings emerge on both sides, she starts to wonder if there's more to their contrived courtship than either of them planned ... Can Ember and Franco find love when the masks come off? Or will illusions and lies prove stronger than their hearts?… (mais)

Are you in the mood for banter filled romance between a young woman desperate to escape a bargain (or three) and a Fae Prince more auitedy for the bedroom then the throne room?

Or maybe you want a story wherein cruel, manipulative jerks get their comeuppance and lose face?

Or how the Fae have to learn to see the big picture and not get so riddled by taking sides in a political landscape filled with magic?

Regardless do I have a Cinderella retelling for you!

...now wait for the full review until the book releases soon ( )

I have mixed feelings about this book. I loved the idea of a Cinderella story blended with fae magic, and thought that aspect and the world-building in general were well executed. I enjoyed reading about a kingdom during a time of peace. I liked Ember and how she related to music, and thought the writing was beautiful.

I started getting anxious when the evil stepmother's actions grew more and more abusive. I was tempted to stop reading. I also felt like the story wasn't unfolding the way I'd expected, based on the back cover blurb. But I kept going and thankfully, Ember reached a situation where she had some measure of safety from her family, so that there was a break in the trauma. And, I re-read the back cover and realized I had misinterpreted it. Once the main plot was underway, I enjoyed the book more.

The characters have a lot of secrets. This created fulfilling moments where the truth is revealed. I particularly liked the scenes where Ember and Franco answered each other's questions. At the same time, I didn't feel much chemistry between Ember and Franco, and there were a lot of small misunderstandings where one thinks the other has changed their mind, or where one misinterprets the other's actions, which is not my favorite form of conflict.

Re: my cozy rating... The heroine lacks agency in the beginning of the story, and upsetting things happen to her up to a point that I couldn't consider this 100% cozy.

Ok so this is by far one of my favorite Cinderella retellings. I love the mix of fantasy (fae) with the original feel of Cinderella. It really reeled me in right from the very beginning.

There was this wonderful slow-burn romance that really had you wanting to read more. I loved how the story stock to the original storyline but made Tessonja Odette made it her own, especially with the fake dating that turned to true romance as the characters got to know each other better.

I really enjoyed that Franco fell in love with Ember, not because of a physical attraction, but through them spending time together and getting to know each other. It was refreshing to not have the prince fall in love just because the girl was a pretty face.

Ember in her own right was a strong female character who was able to grow and show that she was not as vindictive as her "evil" stepmother and sisters were. She was able to find her true self.

Franco was not simply the macho male that many princes are portrayed as but instead we get to see his softer side and the pain and sorrow he felt when his mother left. It is refreshing to see a man who can show and talk about emotions, especially "unmanly" ones.

This is definetly for fans of ACOTAR and any Cinderella retelling.

Thank you to both Book of Matches Media and Tessonja Odette for this review copy. ( )

Allow two days for this NC17 twisted retelling of Cinderella which takes place mostly at the Selene Palace of the Lunar Court on the Isle of Faerwyvae. I had an ARC and this voluntary review is my own opinion. ( )
