Auctioned to the A-lister

(Princes of Hollywood #2)

I snuck into a charity ball and accidentally got myself auctioned off to Hollywood’s sexiest, most eligible bachelor.
This is going to be VERY hard to explain to my evil stepmother.

I escaped my monotonous life for one enchanted evening.
I even danced with a prince. Tommy Prince, America’s most lusted-after movie star.
He must have liked me because he decided to cut a one-hund

I read an advanced copy for an honest review.
In this updated version of Cinderalla, Cindy sneaks off to a fancy foundation dinner in a borrowed ballgown, from the drycleaning store she tirelessly works at for her evil stepmother and stepsisters.
There she meets a Prince. Tommy Prince, an A-list actor who is up for an academy award and who is tired of the "plastic " people around him. There winds up being a date aution at the event and Tommy bids on Cindy because she is like a breath of fresh air.

Collateral victims of reality show
Excellent story that depicts the romance of Cindy who suffered her in-laws and who meets and loves Tommy, a movie star.
It is not so much their romance that is amazing, but the context around Cindy, with a family eager for starification, glitter, who does not hesitate to try to manipulate them, through a trash reality show that destroys their lives without their participation.
The story is very well written, with excellent characters, whether they are good or evil

Cinderella...Hollywood Style

This addition to Ms. Holloway's newest series is a retelling of Cinderella...Hollywood style. What does that mean? It means that this one is full of money hungry, fame seeking, totally fake, completely toxic people. Of course those people are Cindy's family and they are determined to exploit her relationship with Tommy. Will Cindy have a HEA with her Prince? It will be hard...afterall, she doesn't have any mice to help like the original Cinderella!

She was so controlled by her family that she really felt like she was a nobody. She was way better than them. She at least had the smarts to run the business the way it should have been run. She was so deserving of a night out. He made sure of that even when she tried to sabotage it all. Sometimes it really takes a lot to lose your cool. For her it took too long for her to see that their issues are not hers.

You might want to make sure you have a few hours when you pick this book up! I couldn't put it down!!

This is the 3rd book in the series about the men in Hollywood's Prince family. I love the contemporary fairly tales the books provide! While there are a few references to the previous books it can be a stand alone. I cannot wait to see what is next for these Princes.

This book was so adorable. I loved the classic spin of Cinderella into a Hollywood romance. I loved watching Cindy realize what she wants from life and how to get it even with people trying to pull her down. Cindy handled everything so gracefully and made the perfect Cinderella of this story. Tommy brought the best out of Cindy and she did the same for him. I loved seeing the characters from the other books in this series and I cannot wait for the next book!

This is the second book in the Princes of Hollywood series by Taylor Holloway. Auctioned to the A-Lister is a excellent modern twist to the story of Cinderella. This book was so good it made me wish I didn't have to work, I never wanted to put it down, I cannot wait for the rest of the series to come out. ...more

The Delight
A Cinderella re-telling updated for the ages. Sweet romance that grabs you with a little spice to make it nice.

Oh, poor dear child. Cindy just is too sweet for her own good. Having given up everything to move to Hollywood, Cindy works her stepmom's dry cleaner business while altering garmets in the back. Her two stepsisters aren't exactly working, instead they are trying to be the next biggest star. So life isn't exactly horrible, but it could use an upgrade. When Cindy is g

This was too insta-love/over the top for me to say that I loved it, but if you're looking for a light and quick read with hints of a beloved fairytale and a taste of Hollywood, then this might work better for you. It's a modern retelling of Cinderella where our heroine is a sheltered young woman working as a dry cleaner and our hero is an A-list actor. While I haven't enjoyed this series nearly as much as I did Holloway's Lone Star Lovers series, I've got to admit that she did a great job alteri ...more

A Modern Cinderella retelling with a Celebrity Prince twist

Set in Los Angeles, Cindy is stuck working at her family’s dry cleaning company, where she works day and night without any type of social life. Her stepmother is of course evil and her two sisters are self absorbed wannabe actresses. She gets an invite to a Charity Gala where she bumps into Hollywood’s Golden Actor, Tommy Prince.

I liked the modern setting in Hollywood and the spin on this classic fairytale.

I didn’t like the OTT

I read the first book that goes with the Princes of Hollywood Baby and the Beast that was my first Taylor Holloway story and I enjoyed it. I have to be honest and say I did not notice this book went with it until I saw Sophia in the beginning. Duh me. But you don't have to read the first book to enjoy Auctioned to the A-lister.

Auctioned to the A-Lister has a cinderella vibe to it. Cindy is such a sweet girl and is so mistreated by her stepfamily. When she is given a ticket to go to a charity ba

Cindy is always stuck in the dry cleaning business working for her step-family. When a customer that works in the business likes what she did on some costumes and offers her a free ticket to a gala Cindy is stunned. She goes for a rare evening out and almost spills wine on Tommy Prince a famous movie star. Tommy is drawn to Cindy even though he is there to find a socialite to marry like his family wants. Cindy offers to go on stage and be auctioned off never thinking that Tommy would bid for her ...more

This book had me hooked. So it doesn't slowly build but doesn't jump right into the story. So I knew it was a Cinderella re-telling and let me say it was good. I sure did not see some of the twist and turns coming. I felt so bad for Cindy and her step family definitely not. So naturally you are always rooting for the underdog. Then you have Tommy Prince, he was different. This story has him following orders or sticking to his life plans. Both Cindy and Tommy are two completely different people w ...more

I am so getting a kick out of this series by Ms. Holloway...her own fresh twist on classic fairytales.

This is her clever take on "Cinderella" with Cindy and Tommy being the main characters in this story.

Holy crow! Cindy's family is like the Jerry Springer version of the Kardashians! The evils of her step-family knows no bounds and I was cheering hard when Cindy finally stood up to them!  She thinks that she is destined for mediocracy and a chance meeting with Tommy Prince brings a light into her

I found Cindy to be a delight when she came to Isabelle’s rescue by removing an unmentionable substance off some werewolf suits in the first book of this series – Baby and the Beast. This book begins in a family-owned dry cleaner where Cindy is working hard to keep the place running. She gets a ticket to a whale fundraiser as a thank you from Isabelle, and this leads to a meeting with Tommy Prince. This meeting and the events that follow lead to a huge change in Cindy’s life and her growth from ...more

Want a fun modern day Cinderella fairy tale retelling?! Auctioned to the A-Lister is exactly what you are looking for. I am totally digging this series by Taylor Holloway, definitely took the "theme" and changed it to fit her style and a Hollywood type of way.

ALL of the characters in this book were spot on and perfect from the good characters to the absolutely awful ones. The story was entertaining and moved at a great place, it will definitely keep your attention! If you want a fun story, I tot

This is a complete Cinderella story if I ever read one. But it's not your average one. This has a whole new take on it. Taylor sure does know how to twist a good Disney movie to complete her own take on each story. Tommy Prince and Cindy Brown are perfect for each other. He's Hollywood's rising star, and Cindy isn't anyone special, maybe to Tommy once he gets a taste of her at the auction. Two different people from two different worlds shouldn't be perfect together in this fantasy story, but the ...more

All Cindy wanted was one night to escape the drudgery of her daily life, both personally and professionally, but she never imagined that attending a charity ball would lead her to be auctioned off to her Prince Charming.

Tommy has forged a successful career as an actor, but he is tiring of the lifestyle and not knowing who is with him because of the person he is rather than what he can do for them. He is intrigued and enchanted by Cindy, but will her evil stepsisters destroy their fairy tale befo
Feb 13, 2020 rated it did not like it
The story of Cindy and Tommy is so ridiculous that it was really hard for me to finish this book. It's basically Cinderella revisited with every cliché you can think of with Cindy working at the dry cleaning family business and Tommy being an A-list actor. The stepmother and the two stepsisters are of course horrible and cruel. The characters are immature, boring, boring and boring. I won't be reading another book by this author.

Cindy, had a hard life, her mother left her and her father died, cindy was stuck working at her family's dry cleaning business, didn't have any social life, she met a client who literally gave her the golden ticket to audition where she met Tommy prince, handsome actor. They have a relationship until her family use her and Tommy's relationship to their benefit. This was a great read that had family drama, betrayal . I highly recommend it

A cute modern day version of Cinderella. It's a bit over the top but is meant to be that way. Tommy and Cindy have insta-lust/love after they dance and he bids on her at a charity auction. After their date they fall a little more. Drama involving her stepsisters and stepmother follows. It's a quick, lighthearted read with a HEA. ...more

modern and fun Cinderella retelling

Super cute retelling of the classic Cinderella story - in a modern (and believable) setting. Plenty of sweet, with just enough heat, as well as humor and irony to keep it entertaining. Worth the read, and HEA. I'm looking forward to the next story in the series!
