Petie McCarty’s PAR FOR CINDERELLA is that fun romance with all of the little bumps along the way that she consistently makes per reading bliss! We all know Cinderella’s story, of course, but now we are going to find out about how one rich entrepreneur became one young woman’s hero…eventually. Trust me, this take on the fabled tale is unlike any you have read before!

It seems Aidan is tired of being sought after for his money, so when his yacht becomes stranded off Cypress Key, Florida, he takes

My Thoughts...

Who will Mega millionaire Aidan Cross come across as he goes to Cypress Key as he wants to set up a custom course to become one of the 'stops on the PGA tour?' Well, it's Casey Stuart and I tell you with will be a lots of problems that will come of this meeting from being arrested by t

Yall, this book. This series. Yes, I’ve read all of the books but this one is my favorite by far. I’ve had a soft spot for Aiden since Rhett’s book and Ms. McCarty delivered a sweet, funny, emotional romance with a bit of suspense and golf (woot!). I was hooked from the first page and this is definitely a re-read for me. Oh yes, a must. I’ll be honest, I don’t re-read a lot of the books that I review for this site but this one…I will definitely do that. Plus, I fell in love with a certain Scotsm ...more

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Well, what can I say for this book other than, aside from the title, doesn't really remind me of Cinderella. I just can't get over how annoying I found all the main characters. And, I don't have a clue how this book got all the good ratings it did.

When billionaire Aidan Cross gets arrested for pushing a guy off the pier, he is bailed out by a hot tour guide named Casey and her Uncle Frank. They own a struggling boat tour busine

Based on the Cinderella fable, this is a fun contemporary romance set in the Florida Keys. Mega-millionaire Aidan Cross comes to Cypress Key with the intent of setting up a custom course with the goal to become a stop on the PGA tour. With a course already open and running, albeit struggling, the town is not exactly holding a parade for Aidan.
After a tussle with an arrogant boater who nearly drowns Casey Stuart with his recklessness, Aidan finds himself in trouble with local law enforcement. Res

Par for Cinderella is quite an interesting and enjoyable read. I enjoyed reading it from the beginning to the end.
The story of Aidan Cross and Casey is very engaging and fun to read, based in a small town where the mayor and Sheriff were oppressing the village folks. "I received this book for free from eBook discovery. I voluntarily review this book. This is my honest review ".

This Cinderella story is perfect for anyone that loves a fairy tale ending. This is book three out of the series and one that you won’t want to miss. It’s a fun story about two people who fall in love with a lie between them. The characters felt real to me especially the billionaire who’s pretending not to be a billionaire. It’s a great read for any romance fan.

“Par for Cinderella” by Petie McCarty is a sweet contemporary romance that provides a golfing twist on the familiar fairy tale. Casey Stuart and her uncle are struggling to keep afloat in the small town of Cypress Key. Golf resort developer Aiden Cross doesn’t expect his brief incognito foray to explore the site of his proposed resort to include rescuing a damsel in distress but he’s enchanted and quickly drawn into the challenges of the close-knit town. Unfortunately, there’s something sinister ...more

I didn't have any high expectations for this book, but still ended up being disappointed. I have to say that I didn't read the first two installments in this series, because I've been told I didn't need to in order to understand this story. Even though reading the first two books was not necessery, it might have affected my appreciation of this novel.

-I haven't read many books with a golf theme. If felt fresh to me.

-I appreciated the attempt to not make the entire book solely about the

Having read Betting on Cinderella from Petie McCarty, I was curious what Par for Cinderella would entail. Because, surely, Petie couldn't spin a different story from Cinderella, right? But she can! After Garrett's fairy tale, we now meet Casey with her wicked stepmother and evil stepsister. And although Casey is not cleaning, she is struggling with her uncle Frank to survive with their golf course in the small town of Cypress Key. And there is a (fairy) godmother, Belle, who sold some of her lan ...more

One often associates small towns with kindly neighbours that look out for one another. However, the opposite can also be true, as is the case with Cypress Key. When Aidan gets an unexpected opportunity to visit the town, he decides that it is a good excuse to also view the property he has purchased. His initial meeting with Casey is hilarious, if it weren't also potentially disastrous. His rescue of Casey lands him on the wrong side of the law, but wins approval from the rest of the towns' folk. ...more

The title is a cute play on words and is fitting for the book since most of it is Golf related. Now golf is not an exciting sport for me to read about but this book actually made it ok. It was actually not as boring to read.
Casey Stuart is a tour boat operator and works at her family's golf course. Aidan Cross is a billionaire who has come to Cypress Key to look at property he bought to build a golf course on. In the process he became a Knight in shining armor to Casey. It all starts when he wi

This is a cute story with interesting characters. I liked Aidan a lot; I also liked Casey, but there were a few times I wanted to shake some sense into her. The dynamic of Casey's uncle and the rest of the townsfolk make for a great cast of characters. The conflict threatening the town is also intriguing. The bad guys are despicable, and I was glad to see them all get theirs. I had not read the previous two books is this series and would probably have felt even more connected if I had, but this ...more

A stalled yacht leads to an unexpected encounter. And it is at sea that sets this sappy Cinderella story. He is captivated by the alluring woman and she simply can't stop thinking about the elegant stranger. But how to find one another?

It had a slow start and had some lagging areas throughout. Although the yachts and the sea life were certainly romantic elements, I just failed to see any chemistry between the two characters. They struck me as nondescript and blasé. They're story was not very ri
