Operation Cinderella (Entangled Indulgence) by Hope Tarr

Magazine editor Macie Graham always gets her story—and she needs dirt on smokin’ hot radio personality Ross Mannon. After he trashes one of her articles, she goes undercover to get revenge on the infuriating Texan.

Ross wants a housekeeper and role model for his teenage daughter. When the perfect woman shows up, Ross is relieved. What he didn’t expect was an attraction to his gorgeous, red-stiletto-wearing employee.

“Operation Cinderella” was a foolproof plan, but Ross proves he’s as perfect behind-the-scenes as he is in public—until Macie uncovers a secret that could destroy his reputation. Should she chance losing her job or the fairy-tale ending she didn't even know she wanted?

    Intrigued Enough to Want More

    Operation Cinderella is a romance loosely based on the Cinderella fairy-tale. I know, been there, read that way too many times. I wanted to not like this book after reading the first couple of pages of the first chapter. I will admit, the prologue had me intrigued and I wanted to know where the story was going to go.

    Operation Cinderella is NOT your childhood Cinderella fairy-tale turned into a romance. It’s a little dark, diving into an issue people don’t generally want to talk about or discuss. Once you get past your first impression of the characters and see who they REALLY are, you’ll find that they can all be likable, at least Ross, Macie, and Ross’s daughter Sam.

    While reading the book, I wasn’t exactly sure if Ross or Macie was supposed to be playing the part of Cinderella. For me, the ending pulled the story together and everything started to make sense.

    I believe in the whole love at first sight phenomenon so I can totally believe that Ross and Macie fell for each other quickly. What I love about this book is that Ross and Macie aren’t who they appear to be. I love that through the course of the book, each of them were able to do some soul searching and “grow up” a little bit. By being around each other, they helped each other to come into their own and find the courage to be who they really are.

    I can’t say I loved the book, but I did like it enough to want to give the next book in the series a try.

    My rating is actually 3 1/2 stars.

    My Review: I love it when I finish a book and I have a grin on m

    My Review:
    I love it when I finish a book and I have a grin on my face. This was one of those books.

    Macie is an assistant editor on a liberal magazine out of NYC. She wrote a piece about prepping teenage girls with birth control BEFORE they become sexually active. When Ross Mannon saw the article, he was panicking over his 15 yo daughter's uncharacteristic behavior and it struck pure terror into his heart. As a conservative radio talk show host, he took that and ran with it, lambasting the magazine on his nationally broadcast radio show. The effects were immediately felt at the magazine as advertising was pulled, which sends Macie scrambling. Her plan....to expose Ross by going undercover within his household as a housekeeper/nanny for his daughter.

    For Ross, he doesn't really know his daughter anymore. He hasn't had her for more than a couple of weeks at a time since he divorced her mother. He sure doesn't know what to do with this moody teenager who shows up unexpectedly on his doorstep to stay. He just knows that he needs help since he's very busy with his job and sees Macie as the perfect applicant. She's made sure that she presents a face that he will see as perfect...conservative, old-fashioned, raised in a small town with small town values. He doesn't question it, especially after her references check out.

    On paper, these are two very different people... politically... but they connect in all the ways that matter. They have fun together and truly enjoy each other. There are several background stories at play here and one of those is Macie and her past. In her real life, she's goth and edgy, but a lot of it is a cover for something that happened to her during her teen years. Because she has to lose that armor, she begins to find herself again. I really liked that aspect of the story line and liked how it tied in with Ross's daughter, Sam's, story. If there is one thing that I could change with this story, I wish that the author had a moment between Sam and Macie about that. It really could have had an amazing emotional impact. But as the book is, it was really very good. I truly enjoyed everything about the story...the shoes, the magazine, the political background, Sam, Frannie, Macie's family...it was all really well-done and made for a great story!

    Note: The touch of whimsy at the end of this book was just perfect. I definitely look forward to reading the rest of this series.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

    I had so much fun reading this book. Macie made me laugh through

    I had so much fun reading this book. Macie made me laugh throughout. As the heroine, she has been through hell. She’s been trying to hide herself so she doesn’t have to deal with the past and never really living. She’s the editor at a magazine and thinks that’s her whole world. When she goes undercover to blow up the goody goody image of Ross, she finds out there is so much more to live than living. She learns that love really does exist.

    Ross is in need of a caretaker for his 15 year old daughter, a housekeeper and cook. He hires Martha Jane (Macie in disguise as her old self) and is instantly attracted. Frannie (ex-wife) is an added bonus in this story I loved her and if Sam (daughter) telling her dad how it is and how it should be is any example, she’s going to be a spitfire just like her. I loved the secondary characters almost as much as I loved the main family. I can’t wait to read more about this couple and the secondary characters in the books to come.

     This was a great introduction to this series.  Macie is a hot headed liberal and Ross is an ultra conservative family man that are at each other's throats professionally.  When Macie goes undercover to find a deep dark secret she can use against him, she doesn't expect to find the type of guy she could fall in love with and a teenage daughter that needs her.  This was a very cute story with lots of laughts and "awwwww" moments.  I especially loved the relationship Macie developed with Ross's daughter, Samantha.  It was very sweet and touching how they helped each other out and in the end Samantha was a very important force bringing them together

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    A fairytale with a liberal dose of heated chemistry makes Operation Cinderella by Hope Tarr the perfect fantasy for adults!  I have read a few other books written by Hope Tarr and have always enjoyed her style of writing, her characterization, vivid attention to detail and her creative story lines. Operation Cinderella is no exception.

    In this tale, we meet Macie Graham, a dedicated editor of a well-known magazine. She prides herself on her no-holds-barred writing and loves her job – or so she thought. When she goes head to head with the well-known Conservative radio personality Ross Mannon, neither will know what hit them.

    Ross is the single father of a fifteen-year-old, slightly troubled daughter. When he discovers an article on “sex and the teens of today” written by one of the top magazines, he makes his feelings well known on his radio show. This leads to trouble at the magazine and the person behind the article – Macie – finds herself in hot water. As a way to retaliate, she decides to go undercover as a live-in nanny/housekeeper for Ross and his daughter, determined to find the most heinous and horrible dirt on him imaginable to expose the real him behind the goody-goody persona. The problem? There is no dirt, but there is plenty of undeniable chemistry that is oh-so-hard to deny between the two. With lies, betrayal and a hidden agenda surrounding Macie and Ross, is there any way that they can find a happy ending or will the wicked witch known as the truth slash any hope of true and everlasting love?

    Operation Cinderella is such a sweet, emotional, engrossing and impossible-to-put-down story. I loved every aspect of it and all of the characters. Macie, I did want to throttle a couple of times, but a good story always needs a bit of an antagonistic pull. Ross is the perfect gentleman – yes he has his issues, but he has such an amazing heart, intelligence and is a bit beyond hotness personified. Neither of these leading characters holds faith in the “happily ever after/forever love” idea, but they lead their lives the best they know how. Macie has hidden demons in her closet and a darkness that has nearly suffocated her since her teen years. Watching her open up to her feelings to Ross is an amazing journey and I couldn’t help but truly embrace both of these characters. I also loved Ross’s daughter, Sam, and Macie’s close friend Stefanie. I can’t wait to read Stefanie’s story.

    There is also a bit of a twist on the Fairy Godmother aspect of this fairytale that I absolutely loved!! I don’t want to mention anything other than that to give it away, but I think readers will be equally as delightfully surprised as I was!

    For anyone looking for a remarkable story that is fun, will leave you smiling, pull at your heart-strings and send your heart pounding, Operation Cinderella is definitely a book that you will want to check out. The story is very romantic and has a couple of steamy, yet tasteful parts that will have you holding your breath and reaching for a glass of ice water. I can’t wait to read the next installment of the ‘Suddenly Cinderella” series, A Cinderella Christmas Carol!


    Favorite Quote: She might be dressed like an angel but thinking of Mannon in terms of “inches” and “packages” had her demon heart beating double time.

    I was the highest bidder in a charity auction for a copy of ¿Ope

    I was the highest bidder in a charity auction for a copy of “Operation Cinderella”.  Anyone who knows me, knows I enjoy romances.  I liked this story.  Ross’ character was one I haven’t read about before.  He’s conservative, which you might think would translate to no passion in the bedroom but not the case here.  Macie’s character wasn’t as original but I liked her.  When I started the book I didn’t know she suffered a childhood tragedy and because she didn’t  sulk and  have a withdrawn attitude,  she  was  a more enjoyable  character to read about.  The beginning of the story was a little boring but once Macie becomes Ross’ housekeeper and they begin interacting it got a lot more interesting.  I give “Operation Cinderella” 3/5 stars.  I definitely want to read the rest of this series.  I have a suspicion Macie’s red shoes will play a key role in upcoming books.

    DO NOT WASTE YOU MONEY!

    I have read free books better than this. Please believe me, it is not worth the cost. The author tries too hardly to relate cinderella and fairytales to this story but fails. I was hoping that the ending would tie them together but it left me thinking "Really?". I wish I didn't even waste my time reading this!

    I actually found this book pretty offensive. The takeaway I got is that liberal feminists with multicolored hair, piercings and tattoos are damaged goods who just need the love of a conservative Republican -- a "do as I say, not as I do" Republican -- to fix them. And the epilogue was beyond dumb. Won't be looking for the follow-ups to this one.

    Operation Cinderella by Hope Tarr was a fairly decent read. I loved the cover and I liked the blurb; thus, I was excited about this story. Yet, after I finished reading I was quite disappointed. The book description provides a thorough summary of the story so I won't regurgitate it. However, here are my thoughts on Operation Cinderella.

    I really wanted to like Operation Cinderella. However, it turned out to be only an 'okay' read for me. I felt that the story was bogged down with endless details. There tended to be more of a 'telling' as opposed to 'showing' in the story. With that, it lost much of my interest in the story. Another factor that made this read less enjoyable for me was the slow pacing. In all honesty, I had to push myself to keep reading until the end. The story wasn't pulling me in as much as I wanted it to. As for the romance between Macie & Ross, I couldn't feel a chemistry between them. I didn't feel any sparks. I felt that there was no buildup to their relationship and that it felt almost forced and unbelievable. Hence, when they declared their love for one another I couldn't feel it. As for characterizations, I felt that the characters were fairly well-developed. Yet, the characters did not leave a lasting impression on me.

    Overall, I was not engaged in Macie and Ross' story as much as I wanted to be. Although, I really wanted to like Operation Cinderella it left a lukewarm impression on me. Unfortunately, Operation Cinderella was not as satisfying as I'd hope it would be.

    *Disclaimer: I received a copy for an honest review.
