Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) | 5358 comments Cinderella never had to deal with this crap.

Jane isn't entirely sure that Cinderella got such a raw deal. Sure, she had a rough start, but didn't she eventually land a prince and a happily-ever-after? Meanwhile, Jane is busy waiting on her demanding, entitled sisters, running her cleaning business, and . . . yep, not a prince in sight. Until a party and a broken shoe incident leave Jane wondering if princes---or at least, a certain deliciously hunky billionaire---maybe do exist.

Except Brock Wellington isn't anyone's dream guy. Hell, a prince would never agree to be auctioned off in marriage to the highest bidder. Or act like an arrogant jerk---even if it was just a façade. Now, as Brock is waiting for the auction chopping block, he figures it's karmic retribution that he's tempted by a sexy, sassy woman he can't have. But while they can't have a fairy-tale ending, maybe they can indulge in a little bit of fantasy . .


Rachmi  | 4945 comments So have you started it, Beatrice? How is it so far? I cannot read it now, but will try to do it in the evening, maybe. I have to finish my works first :D

Yes. I'm on Chapter 3, so far it's okay. I'll continue it tonight after I finish all my errands. :)


Rachmi  | 4945 comments Chapter 2, Esmeralda, Essence and Jane sounds mismatched. I mean if their parents named them Esmeralda and Essence I can see the connection, but then they name their youngest daughter Jane? that's weird choice. Unless Jane is their stepsister. That makes sense, at least to me :D

I agree with this. Essence is the weirdest name though andI was wondering Jane is a stepsister too.


Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) | 5358 comments Brock's grandfather has the craziest idea of auctioning Brock. I can't help rolling my eyes on it.

True! And I cannot understand he just willing with it? I know his grandfather is ill and all, but still.


Rachmi  | 4945 comments Chapter 6, Jane needs to have more backbone. Her sisters are manipulating her.

YES! If I were her, I'll hit them with a roll of newspaper. Damn spoiled brats.

If I were him I'll decline. It's ridiculous... He's old enough to have his own choice.


Rachmi  | 4945 comments He is old enough to have and make his own choice! Both of them are annoying me. They should say no when they don't want to do things they've been asking. Apparently they all are a yes kind of people.

I guess in this case, they are perfect with each other.

Would it be evil to punch the man in the face? Hahaha! He's so annoying.

He is!


Rachmi  | 4945 comments Chapter 25, It's so easy for Jane to cry! Whether it's unshed tears or falling down. And then she'll just talk like nothing happen. Is it normal? She's like she's in her period, with all those up down emotions, all the time, lol

Maybe she's trying to be ok when she's not? LOL


Rachmi  | 4945 comments Yes, she's obviously trying to show me that she's okay while she's not. But it's just irritating me, I don't know why, Lol

I am hoping she stops pretending for once. Hahaha


Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) | 5358 comments So. Many. Sexual. Innuendos. In. This. Book.

I find the humor quite forced? It's making my eyes roll.


Rachmi  | 4945 comments Beatrice wrote: "So. Many. Sexual. Innuendos. In. This. Book.

Same here! I'm not enjoying it at all. Those sexual innuendos supposed to be funny, but it ends up making my eyes roll. The first one, though, when they talk about the cock/rooster for the first time it was indeed funny, but then it lost its appealing to me.

Exactly! These people need to shut up talking about cock over and over again. Though I laughed when Brock called it Diablo.


Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) | 5358 comments Chapter 30 -- more sexual tension haha!

[spoilers removed]"


I really don't like his sudden emotion, no matter that he has bad past. Everyone has bad past, he should control himself better.


Rachmi  | 4945 comments Just finished! And it doesn't impressed me at all. In fact I didn't enjoy it :(


Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) | 5358 comments I finished it. I gave it 2.5 / 5 stars. The story was okay but most of the times it annoyed the heck out of me.. Nadine is savage though. That woman. LOL.


Rachmi  | 4945 comments Agree, Nadine is much more interesting that those main characters, too bad she is only at the end of the book.

I give it 1.5 stars :p and rounding up to 2


Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) | 5358 comments I hope our next read will be better. hahaha!


Rachmi  | 4945 comments Finger crossed! Now I so need a very good contemporary romance to replace this book from my memory hahaha

Hahahaha! Ditto! If only Twisted Palace comes sooner... hahaha! :))


Rachmi  | 4945 comments Well it's only 3 more days, right? :D


Beatrice Masaluñga (beatricemasalunga) | 5358 comments Yep but it still feels so far away. hahaha! :D
