Wow what a story! “Betting on Cinderella” has everything a contemporary Cinderella re-write should have. Readers are in for a horrible stepmother, two stepsisters and a wonderful godmother. Plus we get our Cinderella. We have quite a charming fairy tale between the pages of this book.
I loved how this story fit so well with the Cinderella tales of the past. But this one has different twists including embezzlers, casinos and rough looking guys like the mafia.
I really like seeing how far this godmother would go for her goddaughter. The fairy tale ending was so sweet.
The two main characters, Garrett Tucker and Andi Ryan are lovely people. Plus we get just the right amount of secondary characters. They were all well developed and believable.
This fairy tale story will keep you turning the pages.
Now for a little bit about the plot. Garrett was at his friend’s wedding and he sees a beautiful women sitting the in the pew. It’s Andi. But they do not get a chance to meet. From here the story takes off and we get a timeless tale of pursuit and love.
Be ready for a fast paced fairy tale that will keep you guessing till the end. The story has lots of great conflict along with a sexy billionaire in disguise. Readers also get a caring woman who just wants to take care of her godmother. Sigh. It’s all so romantic. But along the way you also get deception, drama, lies and an attempted murder! Plus I can’t forget to mention an embezzler, a kidnapping and in the end an HEA… Happily Ever After.
I indeed enjoyed the ending. This tale gives us fairy tale re-write fans a new twist on Cinderella. I loved it!
Garrett Tucker inherits his grandfather's casino empire and steps into the reclusive billionaire's shoes as the "Prince of Vegas." His first act is to buy a bankrupt casino in Biloxi. When he discovers embezzling in his new operation, Garrett goes undercover. His prime suspect is the new finance supervisor—the spitfire brunette who stole his heart at first sight.
Andi Ryan moves to Biloxi to care for her godmother and takes a job as finance supervisor for the renovated Bayou Princess casino. She discovers someone is skimming from the till and starts her own investigation, worried she will be blamed for the theft when the new owner discovers her godmother has a gambling addiction.
A rival Vegas competitor has sent a spy in to ruin the Bayou Princess, and Garrett and Andi are forced to work together to prove her innocence and discover the identity of their casino spy.
