I am down to read anything K writes, and I’m a huge fan of fairy tale retellings, so, a K Webster Cinderella retelling? Yes please, especially since I knew that she was going to do something interesting with it. And she did. I’m pretty sure that she went into this deciding that she was going to drive her fans 10000% nuts, because that’s what she did.
Ash Elliot has a problem. She’s stuck living with her dad and his new wife. And oh, the Terror Triplets, her 3 evil step-brothers. Her step-mother got her a job working at a cleaning service, at the most prestigious business possible. But Ash, being a young woman, doesn’t really want to do the job, but she wants to be able to go to college, and this is how she’s going to be able to do it, unless her step-mother pays for it, but then that woman will have a hold on Ash forever.
Winston Constantine is very particular. VERY. PARTICULAR. I would call him a perfectionist, but I don’t think that even scratches the surface of how much of a perfectionist he is. He has to have everything in a very particular way, from how the employees in his office greet him to how clean the office is. So the day he walks into his office and finds a cherry Starburst wrapper on his floor, he gets a little… miffed. Winston decides that he’s going to fire everyone at the cleaning company, then he finds out the woman who left it was Ash. And he makes plans. Devious plans. Really, really devious plans.
Ash is interesting. I liked her a lot. She has goals and she’s willing to do a lot to meet her goals. I think that she was willing to do a lot even before she met Winston, but meeting him opened that up quite a bit. I think that she is brave, even if she doesn’t quite realise it yet. I also think that she is very smart and very determined. I like her a lot, and I can’t wait to see what she’s going to do in the future.
Winston isn’t as bad as he’d like to like to think he is. I mean, he’s not a good guy, definitely not, but he’s not as bad as he thinks he is, at least when it comes to Ash. He is probably much harder when it isn’t about Ash, but we haven’t seen him have to play a lot of hardball. Well, scratch that, we have, but I have a feeling that there is going to be more coming and we’ll definitely see more of him playing hardball.
This is the first part of a duet, and the second part, Prince Charming, is coming. Soon, I hope.
I like Winston’s brother, and I hope that he can help Ash.
OK, that’s all for this one! Go check it out! Happy reading!!
