Review: Me, Cinderella? by Aubrey Rose

One kind deed can change your life forever...

Brynn Tomlin could never afford to follow her heart. But when she sees a stranger shivering in the snow outside of the college library, an inexplicable urge leads her to buy him a hot cup of coffee. It's just a small act of kindness, a few words of conversation. Brynn should be focusing on her finals, after all, not on the man who looked up at her gratefully with piercing blue eyes. 

He could have been anyone - a janitor on break, a graduate student, a bum. But the man standing outside in the cold turns out to be Dr. Eliot Herceg, one of the most brilliant minds in mathematics and heir to a fortune. After years of reclusive isolation, he now finds his heart awakening to the kind girl whose name he does not know. 

Brynn has spent her life trying to forget her desires, and Eliot's deep wounds have taken nearly a decade to heal. After so much hurt, will either of them be able to open their hearts again?

My Review:

*ARC provided by Netgalley*

I really enjoyed reading this book, it was sweet and nerdy (in a good way) :). It was refreshing to read something authentic, yet I felt that it could have been so much better. The story line is great, but it lacked more chemistry between the characters. I felt that it was too rushed sometimes. Aside from all of that, I really loved Eliot's character the most. He is a quiet person, but has an extremely loving heart. He has been through a lot in his life and now he is devoted to his career as a mathematician. When Brynn sees him one day, she is immediately attracted to this new stranger that she sees and buys him a cup of coffee. Eliot is so touched by the gesture that decides to talk to her more. But it is there short conversation that leave an imprint on Brynn and she gives him a false name as they parted ways. As a math major herself, Brynn was not expecting to find someone like Eliot. She is devoted to her studies and wants to do something great in her life. Getting a place to go to Hungary to study math is another thing that she wants badly, so she keeps herself busy studying with her friends. When she takes the exam, she wasn't expecting to find out that Eliot was the professor and that she was about to embark into a whole new adventure. As these two characters collide, they find out that they might just need each other to overcome their pasts and start a new beginning. 

After being drawn to the beautiful cover, the story exceeded my expectations. I loved how the author managed to create such a beautiful story with a good ending. Which I'm excited to see what happens next in the sequel. Overall, the story was very-well written and although it lacked certain things, the book itself should be read because it's good and enjoyable. I was able to get to know a little more of the characters and their own point-of-view made the story that much more fun and exciting to read.

My Rating: 4.5/5
