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!

Honeymoon Refrain Ebook


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 Blissand 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.
