Review: Fooling Around with Cinderella

Fooling Around with Cinderella was generously given to me in exchange for an honest review.  While I am not usually a romance fan unless there is an adventure involved, I do like a quick contemporary romance as long as it it light and fun.  This book was exactly what I wanted.

Synopsis from Amazon:
What happens when the glass slippers pinch Cinderella's toes? When Jaine Andersen proposes a new marketing role to the local amusement park, general manager Dylan Callahan charms her into filling Cinderella's glass slippers for the summer. Her reign transforms Jaine's ordinary life into chaos that would bewilder a fairy godmother. Secretly dating her bad boy boss, running wedding errands for her ungrateful sisters, and defending herself from the park's resident villain means Jaine needs lots more than a comfy pair of shoes to restore order in her kingdom. First in the Storybook Valley series, a blend of sweet romance, chick lit, and fairy tale fun.

I loved the main character, Jaine.  She is a girl many of us can connect to at one time or another in our lives, trying to start her career and create a path for her future while hitting a lot of bumps along the way to finding herself.  She was real.  She made mistakes.  She learned from them and moved forward, even when she wasn't sure about her decisions.  I liked her.  Dylan is her so-called Prince Charming but he has a past that isn't very princely.  He is trying to prove to his family that he has changed and can be a responsible adult.  The setting is an amusement park that reminds me a lot of a park in New Jersey and it fits the storyline perfectly.  There are even some characters in the story who very loosely fit into other roles from Cinderella.  The book was fun and I found myself smiling, laughing, and just generally feeling good as I was reading. This is a great, quick romance that isn't overdone or too deep.  I really enjoyed it and will most likely read the other books that will be added to this series in the future.
