(In a sing-song voice) Hello Romantics!!!
So as all my earlier followers know my all time favorite fairy tale is (drum roll please)
I mean it’s every little girls fantasy of a handsome prince coming along and sweeping the princess off to live happily ever after. (Big romantic sigh)
What happens though if Cinderella isn’t really into Prince Charming and the Ugly Step-Sister has been into him since she was like three years old?
You get the Ugly Stepsister Strikes back by Sariah Wilson
In this modern, young adult remake of the tale, the ugly stepsister is played by Mattie Lowe. Mattie is a senior in high school with a snarky, quirky, artistic attitude. She has a father who is a famous artist and a beautiful stepsister named Ella who seems to be perfection personified.
Ella is smart, beautiful, has a part-time job all the adults love her and worst of all she is dating Jake Kingston!
Jake Kingston is the typical jock and is the school’s biggest heart-throb.
Mattie has always wondered why Ella and Jake are dating but never really seem to spend time together. But she can’t be “that girl”. You know, the girl who has a thing for her sister’s boyfriend.
What happens though when she is forced to spend time with Jake because of a school assignment? Can Mattie keep things on a strictly work level? Does Ella like someone else?
Hmm… I guess you’ll have to read the book to find out!

Good kissing scenes. Great banter between the characters and no bad language.
