Darby Quinn has a bone to pick with Cinderella. Burned one too many times by ex-boyfriends, Darby has lost all belief in the happily-ever-after that the fairy-tale princess promised her. She's sworn off love, Prince Charmings, and happy endings and she's happy about it. Really. Or at least she was…until she met Jake, her gorgeous neighbor and the manager of her favorite restaurant. But Darby has rules about dating, ones she's culled from her years spent with so-called “princes,” and starting something with Jake would break all of them.

Charming, fun, and unwilling to give up on her, Jake doesn’t fit any of the profiles Darby has created from her case studies of ex-princes-gone-bad. Finally presented with her own Prince Charming, can Darby take a chance on a happily-ever-after?

Full of wit and sarcastic humor, Cinderella Screwed Me Over proves that sometimes the perfect love, like a perfect pair of shoes, is just within your grasp.

If you are looking for something light and sassy you need to pick this one up! I had so much fun reading Cinderella Screwed Me Over and meeting Darby as she analysed all her failed relationships which she matched up to Princes that we’ve all read about. But also why the growing relationship with Jake, a guy she likes, would not work.

Darby has basically given up on dating, because of all the failed relationships that she’d had. Learning about each one was heartbreaking for her, and I could see why she thought that she wouldn’t be able to find love. But Jake had her question every thing as he won her over with his kindness, his charm and his eagerness to get her to see how good they were together.

These two were great together! I loved they way Darby would speak her mind, but Jake was able to put her back in her place. I liked that Jake was willing to go slow and that Darby was beginning to realise that it may be possible to fall in love. It wasn’t always easy, but there comes a time that you need to go after something you want. I enjoyed meeting Darby’s step brothers too! They were all close and supported one another all the

Cindi Madsen is an author that I go to if I’m looking for something light hearted and sweet. I enjoy meeting each character and in this case how close Darby’s family is. There were a few hurdles that they had to get through, but I had faith in these two! Well done Cindi, another fantastic read!

Since they are no longer with us, and with permission from Trisha Wolfe, I have decided that those of us that love to swoon need a central meet up point.  So here it is ladies! I have a link up for everyone at the bottom of the post you can add your swoons to, and I’ll set it up every week! So tell all other swooners out there to come on over, link up so we can visit each other! ***

I loved these moments... these little kisses!

“I thought you were trying to send me a message with this movie,” I said.
“I was.” His lips hovered inches from mine. “I’m making sure to keep myself out of the friend zone.”
He closed the gap and kissed me again. Then I was pulling him closer, getting lost in the feel of his body against mine, his lips, his tongue.

“So you brought me here to dump me?”
“No, I brought you here to have a reason to.” I looked up to find him looking down at me. “You messed it all up, though. Now I just like you more.” I grabbed a fistful of his T-shirt, pulled him to me, and kissed him.

USA Today Bestselling author Cindi Madsen sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting, revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she'd be even crazier. She has way too many shoes but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they're sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.
