Not sure how I managed to get through this, normally if something's truly bad i don't bother wasting my life on it but that's why I gave two stars because it did hold a level of suspense that I was willing to suffer through the terrible writing to get to the heart of the conspiracy. The author tries to cram in all th typical tragic events and emotions that you tend to find in romance novels but gives them all to the same character which means they contradict themselves. For example, we're told how many fond memories the main character has of her mother and then a bit further on she's lamenting how little she has because her mother died when she was two. How many adults can truly remember more than fleeting impressions from when they were two. And the author spends a lot of time going into insignificant detail so that when the main character does something that seems unexpected you have no character growth to explain it. The whole narration was overly long in parts and too short in others, I didn't feel anything but contempt for the heroine and indifference for the hero of the tale. It's like reading a novel that subscribes to every creative writing suggestion rather than focussing on what works and makes sense. I don't usually advise against buying a book because everyone has different tastes but I felt like I'd wasted my money and my time.

HASH(0x9297fe58) out of 5 stars Best Regency/Fairy Tale I have read!!!! 2 Oct. 2014
By BooksAreSanity!!! - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have read a LOT of regencies and I have read a LOT of Cinderella re-tellings, but none, I repeat NONE can compare to Betraying Ever After. Martin weaves an amazing tale of revenge, lies and betrayal that I could not help but become caught up in! If you think that you know how the story will turn out, you will be wrong! You cannot possibly guess each different turn the story will take and the emotions are portrayed so well that as I reader I was almost in tears at points! I feel like whatever I write about Betraying Ever After will be inadequate to express how awesome this book was. I could not put it down and I could not stop thinking about it! Every detail is woven together seamlessly and the characters came to life right before my eyes! Two days later, I am still thinking about Betraying Ever After! I can see it all in my head like a movie. If you want the best re-telling of Cinderella (in my opinion, and I have read a lot of fairy tale re-tellings), then pick this book up! But be prepared to sit for a long while because you will not be able to put it down until you finish the last page! Bravo to Martin who has transitioned to the fairy tale world beautifully! I received a copy of this book for free; all thoughts and opinions are my own. I would have happily purchased this book for myself and loved and reviewed it just the same!

HASH(0x91aa309c) out of 5 stars Kelly Martin does an excellent job at twisting a classic Fairy Tale 2 Oct. 2014
By Louisa Dent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Kelly Martin has done it again another plus five star read.

She does an excellent job at twisting a classic Fairy Tale.

Emma Hartwell is a servant girl working for Fredrick Dodsworth to pay off her father's debts. She is best friends with Tracey, Mr Dodsworth's daughter who's first season is coming up. On the day of the first ball Tracey falls mysteriously ill with a cough and is too sick to attend. To avoid Tracey becoming a pariah in society, Emma is sent to the ball with a note to excuse Tracey's absence. Elizabeth another servant gives Emma
a stunning green dress to wear so that she does not stick out at the ball. Nervous and feeling very out of place Emma just to quickly go in and deliver the note and get out. However this not to be for she catches the eye of Lord Vaughan Wexley, there is something about this young lady that has Vaughan very interested and it takes a lot of persuading on his part to get her to dance a since Waltz with him. Emma loves being in his arms but knows nothing can come of it for she is a servant and he is a lord. Unknown to either party larger forces are at work will this bring a happy end or a shattered one.

From being to end Kelly Martin knows how to keep you interested. I really enjoyed this book and eagerly look forward to the next book in this series

HASH(0x92351300) out of 5 stars Truly unique twist on a timeless fairy tale 20 Oct. 2014
By jewels - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have read several of Kelly Martin's books and I love them all! I think this is her first regency period novel - and she does an amazing job with it! It's loosely based on the fairy tale Cinderella that we all know and love - but with a twist! This is a "shattered" fairy tale. It's not all fairy godmothers & happily ever afters, but the story will suck you in and keep you engaged the entire time.

Emma is a sweet and innocent young woman who is the victim of her father's poor choices and Dodsworth's twisted obsession. Truly, every character in this tale is a victim of Dodsworth - he exemplifies how one man's obession and desire for revenge can literally shatter many lives.

Vaughn is our "tall, dark, and handhome" hero. Emma is his perfect match - he falls in love seemingly at first sight. Little does he know that he and Emma are merely pieces in a game of chess that Dodsworth has been strategizing for years.

If you love fairy tales and a little bit of mystery and intrigue - make sure you pick up Betraying Ever After.

honest disclosure~ I received an ecopy of this book in exchange for my honest review

HASH(0x92134d8c) out of 5 stars Lack of clear communication becomes beyond annoying 16 Jan. 2015
By Magev - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is not quite a usual type of romance in that many things are orchestrated by the bad guy. However, the actual romantic parts are very standard. I found that I could not fully enjoy this book due to the over-reliance on Cinderella tropes and due to the ridiculous amount of vague talking. If any person would have spoken clearly and concretely sooner, a lot of heartache would have been avoided (and the reader would feel less like she's left in the dark for too long...). I understand that miscommunication is one of key plot devices in romance novels, but here it got annoying. I do admit I am curiously waiting for the next book in the series, but not because I enjoyed this one very much, only because I want to know what happens to the characters.

HASH(0x91aa306c) out of 5 stars Captivating! 15 Jan. 2015
By B. Mckee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book presents a really good take on the Cinderella story. I got so involved in the story that I seldom recalled the Cinderella aspect.

The author has shared a really terrific tale with us, a story of love and hate, good and evil, betrayal and revenge, a story of a twisted mind and an empty, black heart. The reader can do nothing except turn the pages and watch it unfold.

The plotting and character development are nothing short of brilliant. However, stories this good deserve a living, competent proofreader and not a cursory once-over with SpellCheck. And note that, regardless of widespread current usage, "alright" is not an accepted spelling. That is even more true when writing historical fiction.
