April Swanson is so hopeful about all the possibilities New Year's might bring, she's practically Pollyanna. She's hardly wishing for the world, after all – just a little less family crazy and the promotion she's perfect for. Surely then she can finally let loose and not strive to be such a good girl all the time.

For reformed bad boy, Finn Ward, hope is a four letter word, yet he has a New Year's wish of his own - to silence his dark and twisted past before it unravels his future and hurts the people he cares about. No matter what.

So why would fate trick two such disparate souls into a fake first date? Maybe because they've both made the wrong wish...

Tell Me True is a sweet story that pairs a good girl looking for a good time with a reformed bad boy. If your a fan of contemporary romance with a fairy godmother in the mix this is the book for you. I was given a free copy for an honest review.

Tell Me True by Ally Blake is book number three in the Cinderella Project series. This is April Swanson and Finn Ward's story. Well, at the beginning of this book I thought this is just a funny and silly romance. It was little hard to follow at first. However, after getting into the story you realize that there is more at stake here. There are some really funny and silly moments but Finn and April are dealing with some really serious and emotional issues. Watching April and Finn’s characters develop, change, and fall in love made this book for me. FYI, includes mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

Looking for a light-hearted story where disparate characters really work well together, then look no further, this is a drama packed story to put a smile on your face. After her parents’ split up, April Swanson has tried to keep the peace between everyone, acting as go between striving to maintain the status quo and not let anyone rock the boat. She’s sunshine on two legs, always encouraging others and putting on a happy face, even when this is a facade hiding her true feelings. This actually makes her something of a doormat, always there but rarely appreciated. With the New Year, she decides to make a fresh start and signs up for help with The Cinderella Project, wanting to be helped to achieve the promotion she really wants. That decision is what sparks off all the turmoil that follows and leads on to her HEA! Finn Ward has a hidden history that is now in danger of being revealed. He’s done well for himself with the support of some very caring folk who treat him as part of their family. However, his real father has been back in touch and that is bad news as far as Finn is concerned . . . . As the Cinderella Project starts with April meeting Hazel in an up market bar, she spots the brooding man at the bar . . . With Hazel and her team endeavouring to manipulate situations, April and Finn deciding whether to fight their mutual attraction or give in to it, a sister and mother who have their own agendas that aren’t to April’s benefit together with even more craziness along the way, this is a cute romance with plenty of twists and turns to escape into. Many thanks to the publishers and NetGalley for gifting me an ARC of this novel. This is my honest review.

April Swanson saw what The Cinderella Project had done for her best friend JJ. She met the love of her life while on a cruise ship. So when April needs help landing a coveted promotion at her job, she enlists the help of the organization. Little did April know she would be getting more than she expected. She might actually lose her heart to a man she met at a bar during one of her first tests. Finn Ward has been contemplating leaving his job and town when his father is released from prison. He wants to keep those he is closest to safe and doesn’t want anything to do with his father. But when he meets April, things get a little more complicated. This was a cute story. I liked April and Finn’s characters. They had great chemistry together even though they had opposite personalities. It was fun watching their relationship form. The book also referenced to characters from previous books so you caught up with them a little bit too. There were some slow spots in the book and a few spots where I got confused and had to go back and reread what I had just read to get back on track. But the ending was sweet and made up for the areas where I had trouble.

This one just didn't work for me. I had a difficult time connecting with these characters and getting invested in the story. The writing is very good and the characters well developed, the story itself just didn't do it. A little too much family craziness for me.

The Cinderella Project series blends the magic of adolescence with the drama of real life. The concept is complex and innovative, but may not always work. Tell Me True gives an optimist, an eccentric and a reformed bad boy center stage. April was flaky, Hazel flighty and Finn a hard to read puzzle, but for all of the craziness, Ms. Blake never skimped on the charm. Tell Me True, will not solve wars or mend broken hearts but in a world of chaotic turmoil, April, Hazel and Finn served a more important purpose. To take a reader out of their head and bring on a smile. It did what it was meant to do.
