A CinderFella story--it's all fun and games until somebody loses a shoe...
Eldon Cinder would give anything to see Prince Xavier one last time, but only women are invited to the royal ball. When the local witch offers to make Eldon female for just one night, he agrees.
One spell. One night. One dance.
What could possibly go wrong?
This was my first time reading a gay twist on the Cinderella story. I must admit I approached this book with trepidation but as I started I began to relax and enjoy the ride. I was afraid it was going to be a drag queen type of thing but man was I wrong and glad for that error.
The book actually followed the original with some closeness but veered off at just the right spots. I think the twin cousins were meaner than the ugly step-sisters in the original and Eldon was much less sappy than the original Cinderella.
I think the “chosen” cousin may have been borrowed from Shakespeare’s TAMING OF THE SHREW, only didn’t get tamed, she got tossed out on her ass.
There are NO descriptive sex scenes in this one and it doesn’t need them as far as I am concerned. She plays at it and lets you know something happened between them but to me she could have just closed the door on it and left it all to the imagination and it would have been just as pleasing.
Overall a very easy and fun read.
