This twist on the Cinderfella romance is a real pleasure read

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

So far my 2019 romance reading has been a joy, filled with stories which don’t follow a traditional contemporary path to love.

Felice Stevens’ latest is no exception and in this she gives us what seems like a bit of a Cinderfella style relationship until you realise that it’s the handsome prince who is need of help, not our erstwhile Albanian porter.

Jesse has suffered a slow decline since his world was ended so abruptly – like so many others – when his father was killed in the 9/11 attack.

His anxieties worsened until he ended up with agoraphobia in his late 20s and he’s not left his apartment in the famous Dakota Building in New York for the last five years.

Now, it’d be easy to say Dash saves him, but really he doesn’t, he just gives Jesse another foundation stone to rely on.

They’re such wonderfully drawn characters, the Dakota Building as much as the rest bringing a unique strand to this lovely romance.

One of the best from this author imho and a real delight. I can’t wait to see what Landmark comes next and find out which men will be finding love around it!
