About this ebook

Cinderella retold: Fae, vampires, shifters, and a Godmother who’ll grant you any wish—if you pay the price.

For human slave Elle, it’s just another night of breaking her stepmother’s rules and sneaking out. Another night of using her unique skills for clients who want to ... forget.

Get the job done. Get paid. Move one step closer to legitimately buying a wish.

But when Elle runs face-first into a charming and handsome faerie—and then ends up in the clutches of a vampire—her usual fly-under-the-radar plans are knocked off course.

I loved the this story of retelling Cinderella as a much more independent woman that learned the hardships of her life and grew with. The fantasy in this book is amazing so will thought and it represents cultures and unfair treatment so will in a fantasy sort of way.

Wow! I am in love with this series and I cannot wait for the second installment. You tend to fly through the chapters because they're short and gripping! I must know more! I would recommend this to anyone who enjoy fantasy novels with a fun, fresh and different take on old classics, like Cinderella. Rachel can do no wrong with her writing!

I was excited about the blurb, but I'm not as much of a paranormal reader as a fantasy. Any doubts were quickly erased though as I was captivated by the story, and quickly found myself wanting to know more about the characters and their lives! I really loved Dex and his friends, and enjoy Elle's fascination and reluctance around them. I also enjoyed Elle's relationship with Sienna her step-sister. I really enjoyed the writing and world-building, and am excited to read more, especially after that ending leaves the next one wide open! I'm enjoying the magic system so far, and hope it's explained more as the series continues. I also like that the retelling includes fae, vampires, and shifters, and I'm curious to see how the shifters fit into the story, and to learn more about the different sides and the Alliance's true aim!
