Description

Now this book is marketed as ACOTAR meets Bridgerton…the Bridgerton part – I totally get as it features a social season in which all young women are trying to find a husband.

And what better solution than an alliance with a desperate servant girl glamoured as his false future bride? Being bound by her bargain and forced to act as a maid and do everything her step family wants, her life is anything but easy and all she wants is to escape. This was one of the best fairy tale retellings I’ve ever read so far and I’m definitely not exaggerating! While there’s absolutely nothing wrong with protagonists who’ve gotten themselves into a fix, we’ve seen that so much that we forget that another way exists. Of course, Franco and Ember crossing their paths for the first time doesn't go quite well, igniting a spark of hate in Ember's heart for the Prince.

Be it kindness shown unexpectedly, standing up for oneself and one’s future against someone you love, be it assuaging one’s own guilt and trying to do the right thing and fighting fear and doubt and hoping that love triumphs in the end and never giving up without trying at least once and allowing oneself to be vulnerable to failure. As if they weren\'t enough to deal with, a chance encounter with the arrogant Prince Franco leaves her humiliated and in a fiery rage. This cute little fantasy had me kicking my feet, blushing, giggling to myself, and consuming all five hundred pages in 12 hours.

I think Tessa's strategy is to take many of the familiar we are used to in the original story and flip it out. i despised the stepmother and stepsisters so much that i had to put the book down multiple times and tell myself that they're supposed to be vile and annoying but like. Their relationship was slow burn, going from hate to friendship and then to love, offering us delicious banter, touching confessions, sweet scenes and a little bit of steam.I think they brought the best in each other and they both had much more to gain than a mate; Franco found love but also the strength to stop hiding his real self, to live up to his worth and to become someone great, while Ember finally managed to accept and actually love her power and discover a place where she belonged. Em made a bargain with her stepmother unknowingly after her father died and has to fulfil it every single day until she turns 19 years old. Heart Of The Raven Prince had one of the sweetest slow burns I've read in a while, and with a hint of enemies to lovers, this was right up my alley. Ember is half-fae and lives with her step-mother and two stepsisters after a bargain she made, which stated she will have to live and obey them until she turns 19. The 'enemies to lovers' banter felt pretty lame when they fell so deeply in love in just the span of 14 days.

He was sweet, funny and caring, while also being really sensitive and vulnerable in a way not many male MCs are portrayed.The other books in the series take on different fairytales so if cinderella isn't your cup of tea I'd def recommend one of the other ones!

A beautiful faerie universe, an amazing magic system, fun and interesting characters, an intriguing plot and a romance that is to die for! And Franco reminded me a little too much of Rhys (ACoTaR) but every dark-haired, tattooed, fae-male, with black wings reminds me of Rhys. I will honestly say I went into this book because of this phrase “ ACOTAR meets Bridgerton in this standalone fairytale retelling of Cinderella“. I don't know if I should dive into the next book of this series or stop what I'm doing and watch some Disney movies. She brought vulnerability where I expected power play, she brought honestly where I expected a game of lies and where I thought I’d see exactly Cinderella on paper in a Fae fantasy retelling, she brought a wonderful story touched by elements of Cinderella.Overall this was a great read and I think I’ve found an Author whose other books I must really look into as this book is the second in a series of retellings. It was a delight to see them grow as characters and make it through the turmoil in the story and eventually get to their version of happily ever after that we look forward to in a fairy tale retelling. Her writing is that kind that pulls you in with the first line you read and lets you out only after you are broken, satisfied and a mess! But when feelings emerge on both sides, she starts to wonder if there\'s more to their contrived courtship than either of them planned.
