At the Stroke of Midnight is book one in the Naughty Princess Club series by Tara Sivec. I knew going in to this book that it was going to be hilarious. What I didn’t plan on was falling in love. About half way through, it really hit me, that I loved these characters.

“I don’t want anything to hit PJ. I don’t even like him,” I lie, picturing his gorgeous face and how nicely he can wear a pair of jeans.
“You don’t have to like him to get yourself some good dicking. You need a good dicking, Cindy. Brian was mediocre at best. You need mind-blowing, toe-curling, forget-your-own-name dicking. And while you’re busy getting fucked into next week, you can also use him for his business knowledge, so it’s a win-win.”

At the Stroke of Midnight by Tara Sivec is the first book in the new contemporary romance Naughty Princess Club series. As one might guess from the description this series is a bit of a naughty modernized retelling of Cinderella. There’s only a hint of the fairy tale such as names involved so nothing will turn into a pumpkin but for someone such as myself that loves to remember those characters it was a lovely added touch to pull me into the book.

This first installment of the series introduces C

What a hoot. This book had me literally laughing out loud. This alternate take on three different princess fairy tales is a delightful read for the modern woman and mother. If at times a little over the top, At the Stroke of Midnight gave me characters to root for and side characters that have me begging for their books. I do wish the romance would have been a bit more part of the main plot, and I wished I could have gotten to know the hero a bit more. Still this romcom

Happy book birthda!

Tara Sivec has given a breath of fresh air to a classic fairytale and has whipped up hilarious, empowering, sweet and romantic story in which she introduces us Cynthia, a perfect housewife whose cheating ex-husband left her with a ton of bills, no money, no marketable skills and low self-esteem – until, that is, she meets Ariel, her outrageous, potty mouth neighbor and Isabelle, a super shy librarian.

In their quest to solve their money problems, the three end up getting hired

While reading At the Stroke of Midnight, I had quite the epiphany. I realised while sitting on my high-horse judging with narrow-minded ignorance that I was judging Cynthia for her judgemental, narrow-minded ignorance. Just because I think I would recognise a deceitful and cheating husband and kick him to the curb straight away, doesn’t mean I could. I mean, sure that’s what I would want to do, BUT, I have kids, money and accommo

At the Stroke of Midnight is an adorable funny, laugh-out-loud read. You will want to grab your book club girlfriends and read this together. It’s a women-hear-me-roar kind of read that will put a mega smile on your face.

Cynthia tries desperately to keep her image up, until she goes to a community block party dressed as a princess and meets two other “Princess” with financial problems.

I read my first Tara Sivec when I started my bookworm journey around five years ago. She was the author who introduced me to the rom-com genre, and as the years passed, I got lost in this sea of books and never got back to her, but I never forgot who made me fall in love with the genre.

Welcome to Fairytale Lane, where fairytale romances are real but naughty, the princess loves frickles and dreams to be a stripper, and the Prince Charming owns a Gentlemen's Club.

What an amazingly fun book! I loved it! It had me laughing out loud and put a silly smile on my face from beginning to end. Tara Sivec nailed RomCom on it's pretty little head!

This had a bit of a modern day Cinderella theme that was cute with a touch of risque. Cynthia had the classic childhood with the evil stepmom and sisters. What Cynthia thought was her prince charming was her husband of 13 years who divorced her, took off with the babysitter and stole their life savings.

This was hilarious goodness in all its glory! I had a seriously fun time reading this and laughed myself silly. I adored this!

Cindy was amazeballs! Watching this uptight woman pretty much fall apart and build herself back up was fantastic. I loved seeing her get all worked up and when she finally lets it all fly, it was epic! This was witty and smart and I couldn't turn the page fast enough. I loved her friends Ariel and Belle, these women together were so incredibly entertaining with very disti

.Tara Sivec has always been one of my favorite authors. I love her sense of humor in the books she writes. When I found out that she had a new book coming out this year, At the Stroke of Midnight, I knew I had to read it. Then I found out it was a fairy tale re-telling, and it got bumped up to one of my most anticipated books of 2018. I'm so glad I got a chance to read it. I loved it. It became my favorite Tara Sivec book of all time.
