Will their wedding night be a one-night stand or a merger for keeps? Global real estate mogul, Cade Sloan should’ve listened to his own advice: trust no one, and never a woman . . . especially not his 24 hour bride gone AWOL with his millions. Nina, mousy secretary turned sexy vixen, will repay every penny with interest . . .

When Cade gears up for a takeover, there’s sweet hell to pay. Nina owes her husband a wedding night and he’s hell bent on collecting . . . his way, his time, his pleasure.

I received a copy of this book from the 
author in exchange for my honest review. The gifting
of this book in no way influenced my review and
all opinions expressed within are entirely my own.

This is definitely an original take on the classic Cinderella story. Usually, it’s a rags to riches theme but this one is a bit backwards. Nina, the marries Cade Sloan as a business deal to save his company and then walks away with over a million dollars (more like sneaks away like a thief in the night). Then we jump to a year later and she’s got a little boutique in Italy? Greece? I’m not exactly sure. The location was a bit fuzzy to me. Cade finds her and – duh – wants his money back!

I loved what this book could have been. It could have been an adorable love story. But then you have Cade, who thinks being a caveman and essentially kidnapping Nina and keeping her as his Cinderella-esque slave is okay. Let me be clear – I did not like Cade. He was a frustrating, brutish, emotionally-detatched, spoiled little rich boy. In my (teensy bit blunt) opinion.

I liked Nina’s character. I felt bad for her but I still liked her character. Her motives seemed legit to me.

This part frustrated me. I am a fan of romances where they start out hating each other and end up (after a slow and steamy build) loving each other. Or frustration to love. But this! To Cade, it only ever seems to be about the money. Who was embezzling from him? Did Nina have anything to do with it? And then there’s the sexual attraction he has to her. But his attitude always gets in the way. And Nina! As much as I liked her character – she jumps to conclusions WAY TOO FAST! So many points throughout the story, if they had just communicated with each other, it could have been a sweet Cinderella story. Instead, here comes caveman locking her away and making her do chores.

I liked this book. What I would like even more is to see a continuation where it’s actually a romance.

I really enjoyed the dual perspectives, though I would have liked to see more of a break between them. The narration switched back and forth between Cade and Nina with little warning and sometimes I had to stop and re-read to see who was talking.

All in all, a good book. Definitely an original take on Cinderella.
