Chad Anders doesn’t know why mousy Cynthia Henley trips all over her tongue when she’s around him. Nor does he understand his undeniable attraction to this good girl. Wild and sexy is his type, like the dream-girl he caught a glimpse of years earlier he’s never forgotten.
Cynthia’s superpower is invisibility, especially with men. It’s better for everyone that way. Besides, she’s got a cat. She’s okay. But when playboy-rancher Chad hires her, she’s got a chance to shine. Professionally, at least. Until she learns of his fascination with a mysterious dream-girl, who was actually nothing more than a shy teenager on an ill-advised dare all those years ago. Cynthia knows she’s no man’s dream-girl and never will be.
But there’s magic at the ball. Princesses glow in the starlight, princes appear out of nowhere, and, sometimes, they look a lot like cowboys…
Inspirational, motivating story.
Yes, Cynthia was the Cinderella of the family, with two sparkling stepsisters, who outshines her in any situation and moment.
Chad was used to getting out shined by his famous brother. Together they organize an event for the charity, and as the preparations are on the way, both of their siblings let them down. But Cynthia is determined to pull it together, she needs it, for her company.
The fun, flirting and games go on, showing the true and the real connection between Chad and Cynthia. The events in the story can be a bit heartbreaking at times, but what Chad and Cynthia have, can't be overlooked. And not only Cynthia shows all that she can do it, as situations unfold she prevail herself.
The story is touching and should be dedicated to all who has been signed out by someone else, cause this story shows, so beautifully, that everyone is different, all have weaknesses, but also strengths, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and that despite whatever life gives you, go after your dreams, cause you can do it!
Really, I was expecting a fun, light, quick read, and I got such a meaningful, lovely, and like said, inspiring tale, it took my breath away.
