What happens when a modern day Cinderella’s dreams don't involve getting married?

Romance? Love? In this Once Upon A Romance Series Book 1 romantic comedy, Charlotte (Charlie) King doesn't have time for either one. All she wants is her late father’s dream to come true by making his beloved King's Department Store thrive again. However, her stepmother has other ideas. Charlie agrees to help her stepmother find grooms for her sheltered stepsisters. In exchange, the stepmother will release her stronghold on the budget for the store. After all, one good deed deserves another, right? But, Charlie has no idea what her heart's in for when ...

Alexander (Alex) Royale, dubbed by society newspapers as Prince Charming, arrives for dinner to meet the all-female King family. His ailing grandparents yearn for his marriage and then the baby carriage. Well, that and running the family company. Having unsuccessfully searched for months, Alex doesn’t hold out any hope in finding his future bride among the King sisters. However, all his expectations, including his idea of a business-like marriage of convenience, vanish the moment Charlie crashes into him.

When Alex sets out to win over Charlotte, he has no idea he has to bargain with the stepmother, secretly buy the store, court Charlotte after the wedding, and, oh yeah, be featured in Charlie’s new fairy tale ad campaign, The Charmings, based on them. Can a guy ever get a break?

The couple never factored in falling in love with each other. Now, faced with losing all their families ever wanted, Charlie and Alex must choose: Do they live their families' dreams or do they finally live their own?

    Pass

    I'm not really sure why people liked this book. I couldn't find any one thing to make it stand out enough for me to say I liked it, even a little bit. I couldn't identify with any of the characters and if Charlie 'giggled' or Alex 'chuckled' one more time, I swear I was going to throw up. Some may have found this story cute, I found it annoying. Charlie was very confident one minute but a hot mess the next. The story just didn't flow for me.

    Nothing Special....

    Romance development and character depth was weak. I never could identfy enough with the main characters to feel their angst over their decisions regarding their lives. The plot idea was intriguing but it fell a little flat on execution.

    Unappealling

    I am the biggest sap of haapily ever after and romance books...but this lacked discernible creativity, dialogue, or simply spark. Bt about three quarters way through, I stopped reading it all together. Hence mt two star rating as I may not be the best source becayse I did not finish it. That said, I dredge through even mediocre books and I just ciuld not do it for this one. I will give the author a fair shake on a future read because I like the way she thinks...everyone is entitled to a prince charming.

    Cute spin on an old story

    There were points when i laughed out loud and a few where i became teary eyed. This was a quick, enjoyable read. I plan to finish the series.

    If The Shoe Fits

    Good, cute, quick read. Both main characters including Dolly and Edward were very likeable. This is essentially a Cinderella story that didn't go too in-depth about things. Some of the shady things that Alex did I feel like Charlie just brushed them off... there wasn't any real emotional reactions from her, which left the drama/conflict out of the book. I mean, if I found out I was basically sold off for marriage I would flip out and it wouldn't be pretty. But Charlie didn't seem to give a rats ass. Overall, it was a decent read for a Sunday.

    At times little Cindy's beau was okay, but then she was mad at him and I didn' know why.
