What a nice little story! Ross was a bit too perfect, but it worked in this. I loved Macie and how she changed in the story.
Though I very much enjoy Entangled Publishing's releases, it has been some time since I devoured and loved one of their titles as much as I did with Operation Cinderella by Hope Tarr.

I'm partial to anything that is even loosely connected to Cinderella, but that also means that my expectations are high: I want the Cinderella retelling to enchant me as much as the original classic fairy tale did when I was 4. And well, I'm happy to say that Operation Cinderella was wonderful! The story sucked me i

In the wake of this year’s divisive elections, Operation Cinderella gives us faith that not only can staunch supporters of opposing parties find common ground, but they can also make good bedfellows. Hope Tarr spins this fun romance that, at times, reminds me of a modern day Pride and Prejudice.

Macie Graham is a features writer for an edgy, and somewhat muckraking, magazine in New York City. She’s infuriated when her heartfelt piece on teenage birth control is blasted by ultra conservative radi
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.
Macie Graham is lucky to still have her job as magazine editor after an article she wrote on teen sex caught the attention of radio personality Ross Mannon. Ross makes his opinions well known on the subject, calling Macie out for encouraging sex in teens.

Macie comes up with a plan to undergo a slight change in appearance, from quirky to clean and proper Macie becomes Martha Jane who is all things proper, hoping to have the article of a lifetime by being Ross's live in role model and housekeeper
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 storylines. Operation Cinderella is no exception.

Fun and sexy-thought I was just going to read a chapter and couldn't put it down!

I'd attempted to read Enslaved by Hope Tarr before, still have it somewhere in the TBR piles, but I think I got three chapters in and went, yeah, no. So I was a mite apprehensive going into this one, but someone sent me the book and was like, 'just try it.'

It reminded me a lot of a Harlequin Special Edition. The book's fairly short, about 178 pages or so. I remember thinking, 'there's like thirty pages left, and still so much story to tell,' but Tarr managed to pull it off. There were also a ti
I'm such a sucker for stories that involve kids, even if the "kid" in this case was high school age, haha. Macie Graham has a personal vendetta against conservative radio host Ross Mannon and decides to go undercover as his housekeeper for a story. But lo and behold, the two have some insane chemistry and sparks start flying.

Operation Cinderella was definitely a feel good read that really has you rooting for Ross and Macie, even if you want to shake Macie around a bit to get her to open her eyes

A fairy tale romance with a modern view and human twists.

Macie Graham is always after the best story. But her last article was smeared by famous radio personality Ross Mannon. Now seeking revenge she will go under what she calls Operation Cinderella and dig up dirt on him.

Ross is a very conservative person with very high standards and opinion about how people should think and live. The article he found by Macie on On Top magazine was about an issue that he does no

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

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 magaz
Dani C. (Paulette's Papers)
Macie almost loses her job as a writer for a magazine when one of her articles about teens and sex was talked about on Ross Mannon’s radio show. Macie decides to go undercover and reveal that Ross isn’t as squeaky clean as he appears. So she changes her appearance and lies about what she does in order to become his live in housekeeper and to help out with his teen daughter. What she never expected was that he is just as perfect as he seems and that she would fall for him…

This was pure and simple a Cinderella story on the new century. Macie is very successful and decides to pretend to be the perfect housekeeper to discover all the dirty stories about the past of the infamous Ross Mannon.

I liked Ross and his views for life and family. He had a hard time with his own and he knows the world is not perfect, but he’s trying really hard to understand his teenage daughter better. He’s fun, smart and a really good looking guy, so I could see this Cinderella having real p

Operation Cinderella is so classically sweet. It's a slow-paced, beautiful romance that has you waiting for THAT scene. You know what I'm talking about. The scene where the cute couple you desperately want be together, get together. It's emotional and intense and... SCHEMING. I love it! I love how Macie was so devious and it was fun seeing her get to know Ross and know him as a person and not this very conservative Republican public figure. Which in her book, republicans may well be "axe-wieldin ...more
Un très joli conte de fées moderne. Même si ça n'a pas été un coup de coeur j'ai beaucoup apprécié ma lecture, c'est soft mais passionné à la fois. Je lirai les suites avec plaisir!
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 daught ...more
Premier tome d'une série romance contemporaine avec un soupçon de conte de fée.

Dans ce premier "conte", nous nous intéressons à Macie, journaliste plutôt féministe et à Ross Mannon très (trop ?) conservateur. En apparence, deux personnages qui n'ont comme seul point commun de défendre leur valeur avec conviction !

En effet, au-delà de la romance entre les deux personnages, il s'agit ici de la confrontation entre de mode de pensées et également deux modes de vie opposée. Ainsi, tout d'abord sans

Operation Cinderella, the first in Hope Tarr's new contemporary series, is a breezy, fast-paced read with a genuine, heartfelt, emotional undercurrent. If this book is any indication, the Suddenly Cinderella series will have delighted readers believing in modern-day fairy tales and rooting for each and every Happily Ever After!
Melissa Maxwell
I loved the story a lot more than I thought. Macie I thought at first lied to Ross about her resume but it was all accurate. I loved who Ross was and who his daughter is. I loved the fact that this u=is a series revolving around shoes and an old Hollywood star.

Another sparkler from Hope Tarr. I love this author's writing, which reminds me of pink champagne - fizzy, fun, but still very satisfying. This is a great series, and I'm taking my time with them. Tough to do, because I love her writing so much!
This story has one of those predictable story lines where you know there will be a HEA. From chapter one this book had me thinking of a mix between the movies "Sweet Home Alabama" & "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days." Both movies I liked. I liked the entire story it was sort of predictable again not always a good thing. There were woke parts in Ross's POV where he was referencing her Macie (in his mind) which he still didn't know that was what she went by. The epilogue to me was sort of corny an ...more

What a surprise and a delight! Can't wait for the next 3 Happy Endings! Great read!
First of all no matter how cliche this book is I totally loves it!

Full Review to come!
This story had promise. The concept was good but the delivery was poor. It was so unrealistic. The guy is a Conservative radio talk show host, but politics never came up with his undercover Liberal housekeeper/writer. They supposedly talked for hours at a time, but there was never any friction just adoration. I call Bullsh*t. The guy's career and values were the core of the conflict, yet it was never integrated in the story. Romance books aren't a great place to get political, so the plot was pr ...more
This is one of those books that is not earth shattering nor boring. It was good to read and I picked up the second one right away so you know it's a decent series.

Macie Graham, MJ, Martha Jane works for a magazine in NYC where recently they are being attacked by a "do-gooder" because of an article they posted about teen sex. Now losing contracts, Macie strikes out to get the dirt on one Ross Mannon. Hence Operation Cinderella.

I must be on a heart-warming kick or something, because that is what I'm bring you today. You must admit Cinderella stories tend to be heart-warming.
