Short Cinderella retelling!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌏🌍🌎🌏
Character development: 🤓🥸😎😤😳
The setting: Chicago
The Hero: Reid – Works for Sparrow, a mysterious company with Mason Pierce, brother of Lorna. There is a Sterling Sparrow that runs the company but not a lot is told about what is going on other than it is dangerous.
The heroine: Lorna – grew up in heartbreaking circumstances. For a while she lived with an abusive stepfather and two stepsisters and rarely had enough to eat. Now she works as a hotel maid for one of her former stepsisters who hates her.
The Love Story: Mason needs a date to a masquerade ball he is attending, but wants to bring someone who won’t mind if he is busy much of the time, so he brings Lorna. She meets a handsome man.
The story was cute and I liked the way it both followed the cinderella story and that Lorna kept comparing it to cinderella. She definitely could see the comparisons and also for a girl like her from the wrong side of the tracks to be attending such an event, she knew it was like a fairytale and soon it would be over and she would return to real life. This is a prequel so the love story continues in the book Dusk but it is no longer a contemporary fairytale retelling.
