If the Shoe Fits (Once Upon A Romance, #1) by Laurie LeClair

Every girl likes to get lost in living the fairytale dream. Meeting Prince Charming falling in love and living happily ever after. Because everyone knows life does not work that way--the next best thing is to live out that dream vicariously. Through a story book. If the Shoe Fits by Laurie LeClair is a modern take on the much loved story of Cinderella. Alex (Prince Charming) presents the idea of a marriage of convenience to Charlotte (Cinderella) to save her family's struggling business and give his grandparents the heir they want for him and the family company. Falling in love never factored in. I fell in love with this book. A cute modern twist on an age old fairytale (Cinderella). Enjoyable, lighthearted read. Liked so much am looking forward to reading the rest of the series. ( )

This was a sweet happy-ever-after-story that brought a smile to my face and had me laughing quite a few times. A feel good book which I highly recommend. I am going to read the rest of the series!

I really enjoyed this cute little romance. It incorportated a little fantasy with the fairy tale like structure, and romance with how Alex treated Charlie even after he couldn't give her the dreams she wanted. I loved Charlie's character, she was carefree, loving and giving and funny all rolled into one. She was a perfect match for Alex's uptown stuckup character. ( )
