I have to say, THE SICILIAN’S BOUGHT CINDERELLA surprised me in a good way! I really enjoyed this quick novel. Dante is a wealthy Sicilian businessman dealing with the recent loss of his father when he finds Aislin, a feisty and smart Irishwoman, is squatting on one of his properties. Aislin is just trying to get his attention so she can take care of her family. Dante needs a fake fiancé for a wedding he is attending, so they strike a deal.
Once Aislin and Dante get over their rocky first start, I really began getting into this story. It was so refreshing reading about two characters who just genuinely like each other. They enjoy each other’s company, and it was fun watching them become acquainted. Aislin is such a likable and down-to-earth heroine. She balanced out Dante who is a little out of touch with reality, but he is also kind and generous. I love that he appreciates Aislin precisely the way she is.
The chemistry and longing in this book are expertly portrayed. I felt for the main characters as they figured each other, and themselves, out. The romance was beautiful and the steamy times were fun. Both the beginning and the end were a little melodramatic and jumbled, but it didn’t take away from my overall enjoyment of the story.
Overall, I absolutely recommend this book if you’re looking for a fun escape for a few hours. I am officially a Michelle Smart fan. I can’t wait to see what she writes next.
