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?

If the Shoe Fits (Once Upon A Romance, #1) by Laurie LeClair I fell in love with this book. A cute modern twist on an age old fairytale (Cinderella). Enjoyable, lighthearted read. Liked so much am looking forward to reading the rest of the series.

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.

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. SR
