Cinderella Screwed Me Over - #review

Cinderella Screwed Me Over
Cindi Madsen
Finding the one has never been so fun frustrating.
Blurb:  Darby Quinn has a bone to pick with Cinderella. Burned one too many times by ex-boyfriends, Darby has lost all belief in the happily-ever-after that the fairy-tale princess promised her. She's sworn off love, Prince Charmings, and happy endings and she's happy about it. Really. Or at least she was…until she met Jake, her gorgeous neighbor and the manager of her favorite restaurant. But Darby has rules about dating, ones she's culled from her years spent with so-called “princes,” and starting something with Jake would break all of them.

Charming, fun, and unwilling to give up on her, Jake doesn’t fit any of the profiles Darby has created from her case studies of ex-princes-gone-bad. Finally presented with her own Prince Charming, can Darby take a chance on a happily-ever-after?

Full of wit and sarcastic humor, Cinderella Screwed Me Over proves that sometimes the perfect love, like a perfect pair of shoes, is just within your grasp.

Authors Bio:
Cindi Madsen sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting, revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children. She is the author of YA books All the Broken Pieces, Cipher, and Demons of the Sun and adult romances Falling for Her FiancĂ©, Act Like You Love Me, and Cinderella Screwed Me Over.

My Review..

Me when I found out this book came out.
This premise of this book had so much potential and I did like it but .... for God's sake I wanted to throttle Darby almost throughout the entire book.

Ugh! With all her pessimism.

Her Rules. Her God Damned Rules!!!

Her skepticism. Aaaaah!

If it weren't for glorious Jake I don't know what I would have done.
All in all I did enjoy this book especially Jake but Darby drove me near mad with all her issues. I got them but Jesus get over it already.  My opinion has nothing to reflect on the writing or the author. Those were all good just for me the main character grated my nerves but for others I'm sure they will love her.
