She's just a girl next door and a pastry chef. Why would a sexy billionaire ever want more than one steamy night with her?

Ryker: Marriage and relationships aren’t for me. I have no desire to revisit my failures. Now I work hard and play hard--period.

Oct 21, 2020 rated it it was amazing
This book was an excellent end to this series, although if I’m being honest, I want more and feel like Ella’s brother needs a book. I just loved Ryker from page one, he’s everything a character like Ella’s needed. She needed someone who was stable and strong for her. Her past had too much heartache and let downs, leaving her insecure in future relationships. I want to say that I wish she would have let go of those insecurities easier, but that’s not always possible. All those nice things said, R ...more

A short, sweet, fun romance with the poor girl-rich guy trope. I love damaged heroines, and Ella had self esteem issues that threatened her relationship with Ryker.
This series should also be read in order since I missed many of the references to the previous books of the other two Black bothers.

Ava Ryan is brand new to me and y'all, she's got a new fan in me. I'm a huge fan of the classic fairytales and what a refreshing take this was on a Cinderella-feeling romance. Sexy, sweet, fast-paced, and completely uncomplicated in all of the best ways, this book delivered a beautiful story that I didn't want to end.

The Billionaire's Cinderella gives us Ella and Ryker’s story and it was everything in all the moments. From the moment these two meet, there is a connection.. an undeniabl

Ava Ryan is one of my most favorite discoveries this year!

I haven't read all of her books yet, and I've only read two, and that's form this series... but I'm going to rectify that in the future. Her story just flows so seamlessly. I love that this book is easy to read and the characters are all wonderful and relatable in their own way.

This story is heartwarming and heart-wrenching at the same. There are parts in the book where I almost bawled my eyes out. So, I advice for ya'll to ready the

Ryker can have anything money can buy but the one thing he hasn’t found was a woman to share his life with. He has been burnt by love in the past and isn’t looking to repeat the experience but from the moment he meant Ella she inspires feelings in him he has never felt before but convincing her that they belong together is easier said than done.

The past has proven to Ella that when it comes to the people in her life she doesn’t measure up. She believes that all Ryker will want from her is a flin

I’m a big fan of fairytale romances and Ava Ryan has penned a super sweet, low-angst, and fast paced story with The Billionaire’s Cinderella.

Ryker and Ella’s romance was everything I was hoping for and then some. From the very start the spark between them is undeniable and Ryker knows it even if Ella takes a bit of convincing. Ryker is up for the challenge and then some. Loved these two and Ava Ryan’s easy storytelling. Definitely recommend.

This is the third (and presumably last) book in the Fairy Tale Billionaires series, three standalone books about three billionaire brothers and the women they fall for. However, I would like to add my name to the list requesting that we get Ella’s brother, Liam’s story in the future!

Ryker is by far the mellowest of the three Black brothers - but he’s definitely still got the same traits as his brothers. He’s still alpha, arrogant, cocky, gorgeous and once he s

Who would have thought that a single night at Bemelman’s would bring forth three amazing stories centered around three brothers? That Ava Ryan, the crafter of said stories, would create these heroes who burrow in deep to your imagination. It began with Damon, the oldest brother who bears the wounds of his past as a way to jettison his want for accomplishment. His need to become a billionaire before an important age threshold drives all of his decisions until he meets

Ava Ryan did not disappoint with the third and final book in the Fairy Tale Billionaires’ Series. I was anxious to see what was going to happen with Ryker and Ella since we got an inkling of a relationship in the previous book.

A true Cinderella story. Ryker has fallen for Ella from the first time he saw her in Bemelmans bar. Funny thing all 3 of them (Ryker and his brothers) found their forever girl that night. But Ryker had the most difficult time making Ella his. She was hurt by two men in her life, her father and past boyfriend. She feels unworthy, a “surf” to Ryker’s prince. She does not know how to accept Ryker’s attentions and his heartfelt feelings for her. She doesn’t think she is worthy of his affections. HE ...more
An enchanting modern retelling of Cinderella!
Surprisingly this is my first fairytale retelling in the romance genre and I was thoroughly delighted.

Ella and Ryker had instant chemistry. I loved how playfully direct they were during their meet-cute.
Ella was cautious based on bad experiences in past relationships but you also felt her drawn to Ryker’s magnetism.
Ryker was exactly what you wanted in a billionaire alpha - cocky, dashing, and also extremely attentive. He was able to see beyond Ella’s

It was Friday night. The brothers were at Bemelmans for drinks. First Damon wanders off. Then Griffin leaves shortly after his assistant drops off some paperwork for him. His brothers gone, Ryker is the only one left. Figuring he would head home, a blonde catches his eye.

She didn't travel in his circles. Just being at Bemelmans was unusual. Ella Richardson learned from an early age to not trust men. Especially rich men. Her father and ex-boyfriend cemented the fact that she was disposable and co

Well, where to start! I loved this book very much! It had its disappointing moments though. I’m shocked at Ryker because since to his brothers he was the ice king and the insensitive brother of the bunch but to his Ella he was such a loving guy never once showing the side he shows to his brothers while the brothers definitely showed their insecurities to their women. But here, Ella is the truly messed up person in the relationship. Hell, she’s extremely hypocritical and pre

The Billionaire's Cinderella by Ava Ryan is the third book in her Fairy Tale Billionaires series, and I loved every single second of it!

I'd loved the glimpses of Ryker in Damon and Griffin's stories, and was so beyond ready for his and let me tell you, he did not disappoint! In fact, they're all firmly stuck in a three way tie with each of them having reasons why they're the best...but I digress...Ryker! Such a player, such a CHARMER, and completely adorable!

And Ella? LOVE HER. She's as sweet

Ava Ryan has outdone herself with this series. It’s seriously gold. The Black Brothers are drool worthy god’s in their own right, each with a love thats surprising and fitting all rolled in one.

Ryker Black is a mature alpha dominant male with a big heart and strong feelings. He isn’t afraid of who he is, nor what he wants out of life and love. Though he definitely isn’t looking, he stumbles upon the love of his life and never wants to let her go.

Ryker Black is a billionaire real estate developer with his brothers, and divorced, so he's not big on relationships these days. Ella is a pastry chef who is ever mindful of her budget with the exception of the once a year shoe addiction. Ryker sees Ella one night and decides to help with her being stood up, so goes over to talk to her. They have sparks, and the flirty banter is super fun, but Ella knows she's not good enough for his world, so he has his work cut out for him. The Billionaire's C ...more

The Billionaire’s Beauty is the third and last book in the Fairy Tale Billionaire series.

This book is about Ella and Ryker. Ryker is along with his brothers Damon and Griffin, a successful business owner. All three were out for dinner when both his brothers ditched him for someone else. That’s when a woman with long blonde hair across the room caught his attention. He is intrigued and goes over to her.

This was a quick read...not short at all, but it flows well and there is a lot to keep the reader engaged. And sometimes this is perfect. Not a lot of angst, not a lot of upheaval, just a story that flows well and is a pleasure to read.

Ryker and Ella meet in a bar. He's immediately attracted, and so is she, but she is reluctant to do anything about it because of who Ryker is.

This is the third book of the Black brothers. The story of Ryker Black and Ella Richardson. Ryker is the youngest billionaire brother and the quietest, Ella is a quiet, unconfident pastry chef. When they meet, there is an instant attraction but with Ella’s lack of confidence and her completely different upbringing to Ryker, will they be able to get a happy ever after?

Ava Ryan sets about turning fairytales on their heads. The Fairytale Billionaires series steps out of the fantasy of what love should be and into the reality of what love is. I have loved getting to know the three Black brothers, but I think it's Ryker who has stolen off with my heart. The Billionaire's Cinderella is an avalanche of emotion. The optimistic billionaire and the cynical realist are a work in progress. Ella is determined not to open her heart and Ryker is intent on laying claim to i ...more

The Billionaire’s Cinderella is a book where the hero needs to do a lot to get the attention of the heroine. To make her see her worth.
Ryker Black may be a billionaire and looking for some stress relief but what he doesn’t count on is the way Ella is towards him. He really has to work for it. Ella has been burned, not just by an ex but also by family and I struggled to like her. She certainly has a lot of baggage and needs to leave that all in the past, so she can look to the future.

I am loving this fairy tale series from Ava Ryan.

This is a fun and light read! Ryker is the perfect book boyfriend, a perfect gentleman. He's pretty caring, sweet and gentle especially with Ella. He's almost instantly attracted to Ella, but he knows that Ella's been burned before and is not too keen on starting a relationship with him. But the way he cares for her just makes your heart melt. Ella has pretty low self-esteem so this might frustrate you just like it did to me. She's not convince t
