Loved this modern Cinderella style romance from this author duo

Cinderella Proposal EbookCinderella Proposal by Harley Grace

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I absolutely adore this new series from Harley Grace.

This author duo has a real talent for writing romances which are thoroughly entertaining without being overly angsty or too full of manufactured drama.

They’ve offered up a take on the Cinderella fairy tale, as you’d expect from the title, which is both beautifully romantic and also a pretty believable tale of finding “the one” in the most unlikely of places.

The Bliss resort setting works so well for this series, and resort owner Adrien Blissard himself is the Fairy Godmother at the heart of each story.

Here he gets involved when one of his staff gets himself a fake boyfriend scheme proposal from a guest at a wedding where one of the grooms is his ex.

And I’d like to state for the record, that I hated Chet (the ex) within just two sentences 😁

As for David, I loved that he wasn’t a typical rich man, he’d worked himself from the ground up, and he never treated Fin like he was any less important.

In fact, I absolutely adored how much he treasured him, and the way he was vulnerable with Fin from the off to make sure he wasn’t being overwhelmed.

Fin is a total sweetheart, but not a one note character, he has an inner strength which he doesn’t realise until he’s given a solid footing by David.

Together, although this has such a short time frame, they just work as a pair and it never feels instalove-y.

There’s so many other characters that I want to know more about too, especially Mr Bliss himself, but also Trace the resort’s pilot, Chef Eli, now the surf instructor and Eric, the contractor whose firm built the island resort!

Book one was fab, book two was just as good, bring on Chef Eli in book three!

Cinderella Proposal Ebook


David wasn’t expecting his ex to be at his friend’s wedding—especially not as the groom.

Six months ago, David’s relationship disintegrated, but when a colleague invites him to his wedding at the newest gay-friendly island resort right off the coast of Florida, he sees his chance to put himself back out there. It turns out groom number two is none other than his ex-boyfriend. He needs cover, stat, and in saunters the hottest little room cleaner he ever did see.

While David needs a fake boyfriend, Fin needs a bailout.

After getting kicked out of his house as a teenager, Finley Sweet is finally back on his feet. He’s got a good job at Bliss Resort, but when a self-made millionaire offers him a mountain of cash to be his fake boyfriend for a week, Fin leaps at the chance to change everything and get his inheritance back from his evil stepfather.

What starts as a business transaction becomes so much more, but there’s a time limit to their love, and the contract runs out when David goes back to the mainland. Only it’s more than a contract holding them together, and everything they want is right there if they can read between the lines.

“Oooh,” Chet agreed with a sigh, setting a hand on Eric’s chest and making a sad face. “That’s right. Everyone’s bringing someone. Everyone except David.”

Eric flinched and glanced at me from the corner of his eye.

I should have kept my mouth shut. Every brain cell that was still functioning screamed at me to shut up, get on the elevator that was opening behind me, and go to my room. Mope, suck it up, go to Chet’s wedding.

Let him have his tiny, irrelevant win.

“A whole week of playing third wheel, how depressing.” Chet sighed again and shrugged. “Well, you can have dinner with us, I suppose.”

I turned to face them, eyebrows raised, doing my best to look surprised. “What do you mean, everyone but me?”

Chet narrowed his eyes, suspicious. “You didn’t mark the plus-one box. You’re alone.”

“Aw shit,” I scrubbed a hand down my face and turned to Eric. “Did I really not mark it? My boyfriend is gonna be pissed.”

The smile Eric gave me in return was blinding. I’d never seen a man look so damn happy at the idea of someone else dating, but it looked good on him. It was easy to see why people found him attractive. “Oh, that’s no problem at all. I can add one person to everything, won’t even take more than a few minutes. I’m so glad you—”

“What’s his name?” Chet demanded, but Eric wrapped an arm around his waist and practically dragged him away.

“You have to help me, Chet, who do we talk to, to add a person to all the meals? There was an event coordinator, right?” Eric shot another smile over his shoulder and made the phone gesture while mouthing “if you need anything.”

And fuck.

Yeah, I needed something. I needed a boyfriend.

When his fiancé leaves him at the altar, Andrew Wellman runs straight to Bliss.

After spending the last year of his life busting his butt on the new resort off the south coast of Florida, all Andrew has to do is stick the landing—a gorgeous wedding and a honeymoon to blow the socks—and everything else—off his groom-to-be. But when he finds his fiancé buried deep not in wedding preparations but in his best friend, Andrew calls the whole thing off and cashes in that plane ticket for a solo honeymoon.

Rock star Cord Fabien’s whole life blew apart when his band broke up.

Now, he owes his label a solo album, but all he wants to do at the new gay resort run by the mysterious billionaire Adrien Bliss and is hide from the paparazzi and lick his wounds. But when one sad interior designer catches his eye, Cord finds the inspiration to make beautiful music again.

Two men, completely adrift, find in each other the strength to pursue their passions. But Bliss can’t last forever, and the lives they’ve left behind are waiting to shatter a romance that bloomed in paradise.

Smoking hot and super romantic wrap up to this lovely series

Nine Small Sips

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lordy be that was hot! I think this series has been an utter triumph for Vicki and I absolutely loved seeing Isamu and Brian get their happy ever after.

There’s lots of laughs and excitement on the way before the cherry blossoms are sprinkled and the sake drunk but all comes together in delightful epilogue to the Takes of Bryant Park series.

Now we’re getting more with Devon and Caiden and I can’t wait!
