Book Review Cinderella and the Geek by Christina Phillips
Title: Cinderella and the Geek
Author: Christina Phillips
Stars: 3 1 / 2 stars
Cinderella and the Geek is a book that will make the inner geek scream in pain or fall in love with the awkwardness these two characters bring to the pages. The story is filled with cringe worthy moments that will have readers wondering if this is even possibly happen in the real world. Christina Phillips is able to make some award winning banter though out the story between the two lead characters that will keep readers laughing out loud and cringe many times wondering did they just say that?
However it over took the main story several times leaving this read to flip though the pages quickly feeling as if I had already read that scene before.
Readers will enjoy reading as the two characters have to learn to communicate with each other and the world around them.
However it over took the main story several times leaving this read to flip though the pages quickly feeling as if I had already read that scene before. Maybe another swing though the editors hands could fix those few too many returns?
Something I saw a lot "I came. I talked and I made it awkward. Can I leave now?"

From Christina Phillips a sexy, new romance with a hero you won’t forget…
I'm not looking for love or a Happily-Ever-After because I know how that ends. I just need to concentrate on my degree and look after myself. But there's something about my boss, Harry, I can't resist. It's crazy since he's so hot and smart it should be illegal.
And then, just like Cinderella, I have my night at
the ball and a midnight kiss, and for a week all my sexy daydreams come true. That fake date changes my life in a way I could never imagine. It turns out, Harry wants me too.
But I’m off to pursue my dreams, and he’s taking his business to the next level. There’s no way this fairytale has a happy ending, but that doesn’t keep me from wishing for it.
