Once I got past the premise, I found myself completely enjoying this book. I mean, I don't buy the whole pressure on Linc to be all Stepford and to go so far as to propose his deal with Daisy.
It just didn't work for me. Fortunately, I knew that was going to be weak going in. As fortunate, I found myself liking both Daisy and Linc and their mutual maturation through the course of the story—after subtracting about ten years from their stated ages.
Was it the humor? The banter? That they eventually come to not only tolerate, but to actually appreciate their individual strengths and weaknesses? Probably all of that. Plus, it was a fast read with fun characters and a few laugh-out-loud moments. It's an early Crusie, so it makes sense if some of the story doesn't hang together very well.
Even so, her strength with wit and humor and simply charming characters stands out and I was completely along for the entire ride. A note about Steamy : This was middle-road steam even if there was only one explicit scene and not a lot of extraneous kissing or fooling around.
It was an excellent scene and went on for some pages View all 4 comments. May 12, Tammy rated it it was amazing Shelves: reads , humor , keepers , jenny-crusie , contemporary-romance. The Cinderella Deal is a straight-forward romance, minus the secondary characters and complicated mystery plots in Crusie's later books.
She manages to take the old fake marriage trope and add her own clever spin to it. Even the pets developed their own personalities. The banter between Daisy and Linc was entertaining and the sexual tension between the two had me glued to this book from The Cinderella Deal is a straight-forward romance, minus the secondary characters and complicated mystery plots in Crusie's later books.
The banter between Daisy and Linc was entertaining and the sexual tension between the two had me glued to this book from the get-go. I really appreciated the fact that Daisy's character painted "weird", strong and independent women from history in an unusual manner. I was so fascinated by the details of Daisy's paintings that I put the book down long enough to research Lizzie Borden.
This book was adorable and loads of fun - exactly what I needed during a stay-at-home, sick day. I truly enjoyed this one more than her newer books. A total riveting read! View all 20 comments. I loved, loved this book. There is the fairytaile-y feeling, the romance is deep, there is humor, and two strays cats and a stray dog, what more can you ask? The love-hate initial relationship is great and the development of the love story is even better. I would definitely recommend this book.
Especially since this is supposed to be a revised version. How wrong? Let me count the ways. Yes, I know the blurb says it will going to be one-of-those-fake-wife thing. I'm good with that But nope, not at all. I think Linc is a douchebag, an ass. He practically think that Daisy is 'plain' He needed a … a wifely-looking woman. A Little House on the Prairie kind of woman but wants her appearance at least her style should look more academic wifey.
The only reason he starts to notice Daisy is because he sees her in her slip and feel the impact of Daisy undressed. Oh, GOD!! No, not about Daisy's character, or her mind, but it's the state of her undressing.
Okay, at first I think she's intriguing because she's not conventional. But then she thinks of Linc, and she likes him because he makes her feel safe and because "there's his body" Especially stop thinking about how nice and solid he was with his arms around you and how gorgeous he looks with his shirt off. Then they got pretending to be married, which is a total bore Let's see, Linc starts to like her because he thinks " Daisy Blaise.
My wife. My wife, the adult. I even feel mad for myself because I actually finish this. I know, I know, I try to at least see if there's some miracle in the end. Which there isn't. And there goes my time of reading this. PS: Why the cover for this new revision features a dog when the dog does not appear until about half the book is beyond me View all 21 comments. I picked it up because i just wanted a nice, fast read to just "cleanse" my mind for the next "earth shattering" story that happened to come my way!
So yes, i just wanted something fluffy to read! Something that would just leave me with a stupid smile on my face, and that i would mostly forgot in the following week That's how dated it feels!
But, no, apparently it was written in the end of the twentieth century, em !! I don't get it!! The main characters are card board stereotypes, worst that most of the harlequin characters books that i read about two decades ago!!
