*REVIEW*Me,Cinderella By Aubrey Rose
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?
Me,Cinderella is the story of Brynn and Eliot.Brynn is a poor student who see's Eliot and thinks he is a homeless person.He in fact turns out to be her mathematics teacher and a prince to boot.Brynn and Eliot are both somewhat broken.Can they open their hearts to each other?
The jury is still out on how I feel about this book.I finished it but I didn't fall in love with it.I feel the writing was good,not great but good.I had major issues with character Point of View changes,they weren't done well and it was confusing.When I read a book I love to be swept away in it.Me,Cinderella started off really great and then just slid downhill.It felt like the first half was a contemporary story and the second half was almost written in a historical fashion.While this was a good read,when I finished the story It was just a feeling of,Its Done.There weren't fireworks for me.I am in no way saying others won't enjoy it but it just didn't Zing with me.
