Cinderella Series by Aubrey Rose

Me, Cinderella? by Aubrey Rose

Cinderella # 1

What initially drew me to this book was the awesome cover!  I read the blurb and I really was excited to read this book.  It fits into two of my favorite categories, NA and student/teacher relationship.  Having said that the relationship has to be age appropriate, no pedophilias please!

The premise of this book was great, but unfortunately my hopes were too high for this book.  I was thinking the next great book on my Kindle and it was a good read, but it was not great.  I thought that the author went a little overboard on the math in this book and the romance was lacking.  But if you are into math then give this book a shot.  I was not bad in anyway, just not what I had expected.

Having said that, the next book in this series is loaded on my Kindle and I will begin reading the Broken Prince now. 



One kind deed can change your life forever...

Brynn Tomlin could never afford to follow her heart. But when she sees a stranger shivering in the snow outside of the college library, an inexplicable urge leads her to buy him a hot cup of coffee. It's just a small act of kindness, a few words of conversation. Brynn should be focusing on her finals, after all, not on the man who looked up at her gratefully with piercing blue eyes.

He could have been anyone - a janitor on break, a graduate student, a bum. But the man standing outside in the cold turns out to be Dr. Eliot Herceg, one of the most brilliant minds in mathematics and heir to a fortune. After years of reclusive isolation, he now finds his heart awakening to the kind girl whose name he does not know.

Brynn has spent her life trying to forget her desires, and Eliot's deep wounds have taken nearly a decade to heal. After so much hurt, will either of them be able to open their hearts again?


Broken Prince by Aubrey Rose
Cinderella # 2


Again the cover on this book is great!  I love to follow a good series and thought that I would move forward with this one.  Where Me, Cinderella? left off my interest was piqued enough to dive right into this one.  I am so glad I did.

This installment gives us lots of back-story on Brynn and Eliot.  We learn more about Brynn’s mother’s death and Eliot’s wife’s death.  They are still doing math. 

The romance in this book is lacking.  I would have loved to see more to say the least.  The emotions do run high in this addition and the characters seem to be working through their “baggage”. 

This book is better than the first in the series.  If you are looking for an emotional story that has little romance then this is the book for you.  If you are a romance lover like myself, then I might choose something else.


The thrilling new follow up to the new adult bestseller Me, Cinderella? by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aubrey Rose!

Happily ever after is just what they say in books. Real life is MUCH more complicated.

Brynn can't believe her good luck. Her Cinderella story continues as she finds herself studying math in a castle on the edge of a Hungarian forest. However, no fairy tale lasts forever, and a letter about her mother's death opens up a whole new world of nightmares...

Eliot, finally back in Hungary, is haunted by the lie he told ten years ago to protect his family. Now he finds that he can no longer hide his dark past from Brynn, and time is running out to finish his life's work in mathematics.

The problem that neither one of them can solve is this:

Once broken, can two shattered lives ever be made whole again?
