This week I'm sharing:

Here's the synopsis:
Darby Quinn has a bone to pick with Cinderella. Burned one too many times by ex-boyfriends, Darby has lost all belief in the happily-ever-after that the fairy-tale princess promised her. She's sworn off love, Prince Charmings, and happy endings and she's happy about it. Really. Or at least she was…until she met Jake, her gorgeous neighbor and the manager of her favorite restaurant. But Darby has rules about dating, ones she's culled from her years spent with so-called “princes,” and starting something with Jake would break all of them.

Charming, fun, and unwilling to give up on her, Jake doesn’t fit any of the profiles Darby has created from her case studies of ex-princes-gone-bad. Finally presented with her own Prince Charming, can Darby take a chance on a happily-ever-after?

Full of wit and sarcastic humor, Cinderella Screwed Me Over proves that sometimes the perfect love, like a perfect pair of shoes, is just within your grasp.

Here are my thoughts:
I really think I would've liked this book more a few years ago.  Before I was married and before I was a mother.  But at this point in my life, I had trouble connecting with Darby and found her a little too cynical.

I understand that was burned by former boyfriends, but none of the heartbreaks seemed to be extreme enough to enact the measures she'd put into place to protect her heart.  Like I said, I would've appreciated this more in the past, so if you're currently unmarried and childless, I recommend you give it a try!
