What came first? The princess or the shoes? And does it really matter?
There’s a lot of baggage attached to that answer.
My name is Margaux Asher. Yes, that Margaux Asher. The attitude icon. The bitch in the latest heels. The princess of the PR game – at least until last winter, when Mommie Dearest revealed a secret she’s been hiding since birth. My real father is one of the world’s richest men. Dream come true, right?
Like I said…baggage. And now, Michael Pearson wants to help open it.
Michael. My six-foot-three, golden god of a dilemma. He’s patient, indulgent – and don’t get me started on his passion – but he wants too much. He wants the secrets. What would he say if he really knew them? What would he do if he learns…I’m no perfect princess?
Someday, my princess will come…
The apple never falls far from the tree? Depends on who you ask.
I’m Michael Pearson. Son of an apple farmer. Now, I’m working for one of the country’s most prestigious PR firms – And I’m the sap who’s fallen for the boss’s daughter.
It doesn’t matter that the rest of the world vilifies Margaux. I see she’s just a terrified girl, yearning for a place where she’s loved—but every time I volunteer for the job, she pushes away. It makes me more determined to give her a magic kiss, setting her free to finally see the truth.
Well here we are, a Cinderella story in reverse. Our characters are entertaining and confused most of the story. When you are one of the beautiful people in the press all the time, you learn the game. This story goes more into why she is like she is. There is a heartbroken little girl behind all her sass. I count connect with Margaux, she has learned the hard way to man up so to speak. As we follow along I felt more inclined to follow her lead. It was overwhelmingly hard to watch her life change because she couldn’t.
The leading man is just Amazing, would love to meet a guy like Michael. He is gorgeous and educated, yet he still respects others. Hard working and underneath the sexy suit, beautifully put together. But like Miss Margaux he has not had a perfect life. When the two get together sparks fly.
As I read this book I was surprised by the dedication to problems that I don’t see in books that often. There was no fairytale life, no perfect friends just a hard look at problems that must be overcome not just pushed aside. This is a real story that will make you think.
