Life isn’t a fairy tale… except when it is.
There’s nothing wrong with Ella Gibson’s life— it just isn’t very exciting, despite being surrounded by lingerie. Working for Cardiff’s top modelling agency should have been glamorous, but most of the time Ella is running around with memos and cups of coffee. It’s a far cry from living the dream, but skirting the edge of her fantasy life is enough.
Then comes the day when her cat starts to talk, claiming to be Ella’s fairy godmother. As if that weren’t crazy enough, the pesky puss becomes a fashion advisor and behavioral expert, too. Add an evil ex-stepmother, a hunk called Charming, plus a looming party-cum-ball, and you have all the elements of a classical fairy tale. There’s even a couple of ugly sisters—the fact that they are two gorgeous gay men being neither here nor there.
Ella’s not your typical fairy-tale princess though, and it will take more than a discarded glass slipper to get her man. It’s quite possible she may have to curb her enthusiasm for cursing a wee bit, not to mention her love of vodka. And can Muse, her surprisingly straight-laced feline friend, overcome her prudishness long enough for Ella to sneak a kiss or three with her intended beau?
This was such a fun take on a fairy tale story! Ella is your typical Girl Friday, just trying to make her way in life. With the help of her two male best friends, she succeeds but there is still something missing. Enter Muse, her talking fairy godmother cat. Muse is determined to help Ella attract the attention of her new boss. Unfortunately after meeting Max Charming, Ella turns into the world’s biggest klutz. Throw in a trip to Gretna Green, hot men in kilts and a drunk lady in a wedding dress and it’s a party not to miss!
Fun times ensue when bare bottoms and trips to the ER abound! I can’t wait to read more from amazingly awesome author!
