This is a beautiful story that shows the very best & worst in life. Tess is a fantastic female lead. Her strength going through hardships is admirable & I loved how she let her guard down so Dante could care for her. The chemistry between them is slow & steady but when it picks up, DAMN it gets hot! Dante tends to her needs inside & outside the bedroom, ya feel me? K. Street really dives into the emotional sides of the characters & it honestly makes all the difference in their development. The story delivers the entire gamut of emotions but manages to leave you satisfied & content. A must-read author this summer!

This is not a Cinderella story. Repeat. This is not a Cinderella story! It's a "bring the tissues" angst-filled story. There's a lot of pain and heartbreak. This is a story about getting your life back together after it falls completely apart, not once but twice. It's about healing yourself before you can move on. It's raw. It's real. It's beautiful.

Earlier, when Dante practically pinned me against the house, his warm breath dancing along my neck as he spoke into my ear, it took every ounce of self-control I could muster not to lean into him. How I wanted to press my cheek into the prickly roughness of his trimmed dark beard. His scent was intoxicating. Earthy with a hint of spice and sweat.
My hand moves to the back of her head, angling her exactly how I want her, while my other arm goes around her back, pressing her into me. My mouth drops to hers, and I nip her bottom lip before slipping inside. A small gasp comes from her as my tongue sweeps over hers. She’s the sweetest fucking thing I’ve ever tasted. Her arms wrap around my neck, fingers tugging at the ends of my hair, dragging me closer.
“Please,” I beg, unashamed.
“We have all night, Tess. I’ll take care of you, I promise. But there’s no way in hell I’m rushing this.” His beard grazes over my bare pussy before he kisses his way down the opposite leg.
From The Publisher
Stand-alone contemporary romance. Please be advised the title is a metaphor and this story is not a fairy tale retelling.
One perfect life.
Two uniformed officers.
Three acts of betrayal.
Four beats of a heart.
Five words that will destroy her.
Once upon a time, Tessa Salinger had it all.
She discovered that fairy tales were nothing more than extravagant lies dressed up in lavish clothes.
In reality...Cinderella falls.
