AS DESCRIBED ON AMAZON:
Maids don't ever get to go to the ball... do they?
Stretched thin from running a business and organizing a wedding, the last thing Jace needs is the world's most eligible bachelorettes trying to sneak their way into his bed. When he meets Ella grooming the inn's horses, though, she leaves him breathless. Jace knows that he can't let her get away...
What starts as an almost-kiss in the barn ends up captivating Ella, even though she knows that the richly dressed Jace is out of her league. However, when he keeps showing up wherever she is, her attraction to him grows. And if she can outwit her wicked stepmother, she just might be able to dance with him at the wedding reception ball. There's only one problem...
What if Jace is actually the groom?
A cute twist on the Cinderella story. Wicked stepmother, check. A sympathetic and still annoying stepsister, okay. Poor Ella worked herself to the bone and tolerated being a virtual slave to hold on to her father's legacy. She met the handsome billionaire, snag #1: he may or may not have been the groom. Ah, I need to see what happens... or maybe not. It took forever to straighten out that little glitch. As much as I liked the idea, the book was stretched to the limit. Superfluous description of thoughts and telling of feelings had me skipping to the next verbal statement or scene of action. I prefer to make up my mind about how a character thinks and feels based on what they do and how they react to what others do, not by what the author tells me they feel. Distracting typos and mistakes grew in number as the book progressed. It wasn't a "bad" story, but in my humble opinion, improvements would develop if shortened and tightened it up.
