Cinderella Screwed Me Over
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Darby Quinn has a bone to pick with Cinderella. Burned one too many times by ex-boyfriends, Darby has lost all belief in the happily-ever-after that the fairy-tale princess promised her. She's sworn off love, Prince Charmings, and happy endings and she's happy about it. Really. Or at least she was…until she met Jake, her gorgeous neighbor and the manager of her favorite restaurant. But Darby has rules about dating, ones she's culled from her years spent with so-called "princes," and starting something with Jake would break all of them.
Charming, fun, and unwilling to give up on her, Jake doesn't fit any of the profiles Darby has created from her case studies of ex-princes-gone-bad. Finally presented with her own Prince Charming, can Darby take a chance on a happily-ever-after?
Full of wit and sarcastic humor, Cinderella Screwed Me Over by Cindi Madsen proves that sometimes the perfect love, like a perfect pair of shoes, is just within your grasp.
Jake & Darby are neighbors, and he wants to be more. He also owns her favorite restaurant and she feels it is a little too close for comfort. What if something were to go wrong?
Darby does not believe in happily ever after. Not anymore. She has the case files to prove her theory. So the fact she is attracted to Jake bothers her. How can she want someone so wrong for her?
This is a funny story. It also has some hot secy times. The characters are certainly meant to be and it is a slow burn watching them circle one another. The case files are a must read for any romance lover.

Yes Darby is cynical, but you know who else is? Life. Even those who claim to be optimistic romantics can't help but be a bit cynical after so many years. That's what we saw in Darby but more importantly we saw someone who was still willing to be proven wrong. She wanted someone to prove to her she was worth it and isn't that what we all want?
Really enjoyed Darby and Jakes story and the love we see grow between them in a way that was out of a fairy tale while still being supremely realistic. This is how a relationship actually unfolds in real life, with real people with real fears, and proves we all deserve our own fairy tale.
couldn't get through it
Darby was just too cynical for me, I couldn't get through the book, stopped halfway through. Really disappointed because I love Cindi Madsen and her accidentally in love series.
I understand the antidotes with the Disney stories and her past dating experiences but it got too frustrating and I wanted to see what was happening with her and Jake.
