⭐️⭐️⭐️ Lingers on the negatives

The Firefighter's Cinderella

Sweet and clean with some solid humor and banter, I enjoyed parts of this book while others missed the mark. If you’re looking for a quick and cute romance, this might be the book for you.

The story follows Harper, a woman who has trust issues because of an absent father. The one time she let her guard down and opened up to a guy, he broke her heart – and now she refuses to open herself up to risks. Rafferty didn’t mean to ruin his friendship with Harper, but he couldn’t give her something he’s not capable of. He’s a good time guy, willing to give a woman up to three dates but never letting his heart get involved. When Harper has an issue with her business and needs someone to stand in as her Prince Charming, Rafferty somehow finds himself in the role. They need to let each other back in to give a good performance, but that’s not as easy as it may seem.

I did like the humor in the story, and the history between these two made it easy to root for them. But the author spends significantly more time lingering on all of the reasons these two shouldn’t be together than she does showing the reader why they should. It’s a constant topic throughout the story, with a lot of internalization about why a relationship can’t happen… which got a little exhausting. I’m also still not clear on the timeline of when they stopped being friends, when he started being a player… it’s these small issues that detracted from an otherwise sweet romance. That being said, it’s a clean and wholesome read with all the elements of a good book. Thank you, NetGalley, for providing me with an ARC. I am voluntarily leaving a review of this sweet romance.
