Product Description

About the Author

S.K. Hartley is a wife and mother to an oil soaked husband and a tomato sauce covered son by day, by night an International Bestselling Author who's first novel, Finding You, quickly shot up the charts in fall 2013, winning blog awards for the tear inducing writing and breath catching ending. Since releasing her first novel, she then went on to release two more books in the series, Finding Me & Finding Us, proving that New Adult is vastly popular among readers and writers a like. Located in the not so sunny North West of England, UK, S.K. Hartley deals with daily battles against Microsoft Office Word translations. Working as a British author who writes in American English is a challenge that's both frustrating and fulfilling. When she's not doing all the above, S.K. Hartley spends the rest of her time interacting with her readers on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Google+ and also via her newsletter.

If all fairytales involved Mr Black then I would happily live out my life in his fairytale!

This book absolutely stole my heart and I am absolutely smitten with S.K Hartley's writing, storytelling and characters. This story had me believing in Prince Charming and wishing for my very own (sorry Hubby!) especially if its in the form of Mr Black. I was drawn into the story from the very first pages and didn't want to put my kindle down until it was finished and then I wished that the story would extend itself so I had more to read.

The characters in this book made me experience a whole wealth of emotions and I enjoyed every moment of them. Payton is your typical female lead who has had her heart shattered before, but there is nothing typical about her at all. She's head strong, stubborn, and loyal to her roots. When paired with Kylie and Quin the make the most comical dramatic trio going and they will have you holding your sides from laughing. The man candy in this book... Gabriel Black. This man is walking sex! Everything about him had my pulse racing and my panties needing extinguishing. Ladies you will love him!

This really is an amazing book and everyone should get themselves a copy! I enjoyed reading it that much I'm sure to go back again and again. This story does many things to you whilst reading it, you find yourself hoping, stupidly smiling, getting frustrated and wanting to bang heads together. It is a book that will warm you from the inside out and will give you butterflies!

This book spoke to the romantic in me. Our hardworking heroine Payton is trying to make it in the PR world, despite being constantly put down and bossed around by her wicked boss Kate and her evil minions.
Then, out of the blue, she is sent to meet with an important client, the powerful Mr Gabriel Black. He's handsome, rich, sinfully sexy.... And unfortunately the man Payton had crazy, passionate sex with the night before!
The story centres around Gabriel's pursuit of Payton, her resisting at every turn for fear that he could be her Prince Charming.
I loved the fairytale vibe, the cinderella theme... It was modern yet held the breathtaking qualities us girls grew up loving.

This is my first experience of SK Hartley, but it won't be my last - I freaking loved this book. I read this book with an enormous smile on my face from start to finish ! The story is based loosely around the fairy tale classic Cinderella - my favourite fairy tale - with a modern twist. If Cinderella were to be rewritten today this version would become a classic !
Payton now longer believes in fairy tales, in fact she's so fed up with love and happily ever after, she wears a hoodie that says - Cinderella can kiss my ass - ( I'm so getting a hoody that says that ) hurt by someone she loved and trusted Payton has given up on her Prince Charming. Enter Gabriel Black the sexy handsome owner of Black Enterprises, when they meet the sexual chemistry is of the wall, i could feel it sizzling through my kindle ! But will Payton be able to take a chance on Prince Charming ?
I know I'm gushing over this book but honestly I loved it, from the two main characters who were full of sass, and sexiness to the friends of Payton who were an important part of this great read. The one liners had my literally laughing out loud, I enjoyed the unique writing style of SK and can't wait to read more from this very talented writer.

I absolutely loved this book and cannot recommend it enough to anyone and everyone.

This is the first book I have read from S.K. Hartley and it will definitely not be the last. Her writing style has you hooked from the first few lines and I was annoyed every time I had to put the book down as I simply wanted to continue with the story of Payton and Gabriel.

Payton and Gabriel's story is swoon worthy, coupled with Payton's best friends, Kylie and Quinn, the story is a twist on a classic fairy tale and will leave you wanting to read more and more about them. The fact that I was laughing out loud on the bus (probably to the annoyance of the other passengers) makes this book a 5* read for me. I could easily visualise the characters and situations and found myself agreeing whole heartedly with what they were saying.

If you love an old fashioned love story with contemporary twists then please, please purchase this book. I know that you won't be disappointed.

Found this book through a recommendation on Goodreads and I am glad I got this. I have to say this is very similar to the FSoG (for example, the lead female tripping and falling when meeting the male character for the first time).

You got Payton who is extremely cautious when it comes to all things love given her past experience with someone who cheated on her, but eventually finds herself opening up to Gabriel despite the resistance she showed at the beginning of the book.

I love that Payton has two amazing friends (Kylie and Quinlan (Quinn)), who did not always agree on her views about love but would stand by her no matter what. It did come as a bit of a shock about ¾ of the way in when Gabriel revealed he “is” married (wrong choice of word as his wife had actually passed away), but this did keep me engaged in the book and want to keep reading to find out the outcome of the Payton/Gabriel relationship. I loved how this installment ended and cannot wait to read on or wonder if the next one will be a story of one of the other characters, I would love to see how Kylie’s and Quinn’s story goes on, hopefully they will find their happy ever after too!

I think this is a good one from SK Hartley and I cannot wait for the next one, just need to figure out how to order it as the link is not on Amazon?? (Hope you can help with this one, SK Hartley…)

If you don’t already have this, you should get this and read away. I really like what this author has to offer and will look forward to all her future releases.
