Stealing Cinderella Release Blitz & Review

Title: Stealing Cinderella
Series: Sinister Fairy Tales Collection
Author: A. Zavarelli
Genre: Dark Fairy Tale Retelling
Release Date: April 2, 2020
Every royal has their dirty little secret. His was… me. 
It should have been simple. 
Go to the ball, meet the prince, and secure his patronage for my favorite charity. 
But beneath the mask, the brooding beast of a man was not at all who I expected. 
He was dark and intense and eerily quiet. 
When I left, I could still feel the ghost of his touch branded into my skin. 
He haunted my dreams, but I never expected to see him again. 
Then he came for me. 
And he took me. 
And I learned that his darkness was a void I never could have conceived. 
He’s the crown prince of Norway. 
And, now, I’m his captive.

My Review

Holy Sinister Diamond-Studded Slippers!! This retelling was Phe-nom-enal! A.Zavarelli took classic Cinderella and put a modern, sinister, dark, dirty, and deviously-delicious twist on it. She tossed in lots of heartbreaking elements and unexpected moments that hit me right in my feelings and I couldn’t put this book down! It.Was.Fantastic! 

Thorsen Lykken is no ordinary Prince Charming. Tragic events from his past made him the man he is. The reputation he’s earned as an intensely dark and secretive man is an understatement for what truly lies inside this beautifully troubled man. When he meets Ella he is immediately captivated by her innocence and beauty, he’s drawn to her in a way that he’s never been to anyone. He has to have her, so he takes her.

He’s dealing with personal issues and finding it hard to struggle with the balance of conflicts going on inside him. He’s never really dealt with women on his own. However he finds himself very dominant and protective over her where others are concerned. What I loved the most about his character was the amazing transformation we saw. I mean this man was night and day, from the beginning of the story to the end. 

Ella was the beautiful and innocent girl living a pretty sad existence. Walking around with the burden of your fathers death on your shoulders and then being abused and mistreated for years by the only other family you have left, had to have been devastating for her. Finding solace at the animal sanctuary near her home. A one night reprieve gifted to her in the form of an invitation to a ball leads to a chance meeting with Prince Thorsen Lykken that will change her life forever. 

There are many things that happen after which I won’t go into detail so as not to give spoilers. But ultimately those will inevitably end with her ending up at Thorsen’s estate in Norway. Given all that she goes through in the days surrounding her arrival at Prince Thorsen’s estate I found her character to be resilient and tough and just the balance he needed to his rude and rough. Instead of doing what we all expected she did the opposite, she was so loving and caring and couldn’t help but want to fix this broken man, and fell for him hard core in the process. 

“I think I know deep in my soul this is a suicide mission. He’ll never be able to love me back.”

I love this story because it’s such a story of transformation and healing. Now, it’s all kids of devious and dirty and twisted and unexpected and I love that. But I love that the Thorsen we meet in the beginning is not the Thorsen of the end. I love the journey these two broken people went on together. Their love healed each other. It was emotional and angsty and just all around a wonderfully awesome addition to the Sinister Fairytales collection. 

*I voluntarily reviewed an advanced complimentary copy of this book!

Blurb: She was never supposed to walk into my club. But she did. I shouldn’t have looked twice at her. But I did. The criminal underworld is no place for a girl like her. One night with Katerina isn’t enough, but men like me can’t afford to be weak. So, I tell her to leave me behind. She does, but not before she sees something she shouldn’t. When she goes into hiding, it’s my duty to hunt her down. I have a job to do, and she needs to disappear for good. But four years later, Kat isn’t alone anymore. And the little boy right beside her looks just like me. Mine is book one of The Ties That Bind, an all-new dark mafia romance from A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight.

My Review

WOW, my friends! I did a super squeal of excitement when this hit my kindle. I knew from the blurb and the fact that it was written by an amazingly talented duo like A. Zavarelli and Natasha Knight, that we were in for greatness. I was not disappointed. This book is dark, raw, sinister and gritty. It will grab you from the very beginning with this phenomenal combination of unbelievably hot tension and edge of your seat suspense. Get ready to be simultaneously fanning yourself and frustrated. 

Levka Antonov was both her Prince Charming and her Villian. He was gorgeous and god like with his power. He was as delicious as he was dangerous. He was feared! When he wanted something he got it, and he decided that he wanted Katerina to be his “Katya.” They hit it off and it was everything more than even he could have predicted! He knew she was hiding things but he had ways of getting to the bottom of it and he would find out exactly who and what she was hiding.

When something in his business goes down and Katerina disappears, Lev is both concerned and angry at her for disappearing. There are a lot of speculations and distrust surrounding her from his Family business associates, will he abide by the orders he’s given when her location is discovered after a few years? However, will an unexpected secret game changing curveball Katerina has been carting with her for three years, throw a monkey wrench in all of Lev’s plans? Just how exactly will Lev punish her?

“I’m taking back what’s Mine”

Katerina Blake was a beautiful broken and poor young woman,  but she’s hiding a troubled and scarred past beneath first glance. One no one could even imagine. She was such a strong and resilient character. I loved her so much. My heart broke for the little girl she’d been and what she endured as a child, but it fist pumped at the strong kick ass woman she’d become. Now, when she met Lev, it was a collision of hotness y’all. Good god!

Their chemistry was overwhelming. She was strong but he brought out a submissive side to her that she didn’t know existed, holy hell! 🔥 She would do anything he said. She fell hard and fast, understandably so. But when a devastating tragic event happens and he is to blame on the same day she finds out life changing news. She must do what she needs to protect more than just herself.

She could have cowered but she didn’t. She did what she had to. She is the kind of character I FLOVE, my friends! She goes through all the emotions and through such growth as a character and it makes for such an amazing read. You get to see her at her lowest then go to seeing her in her most protective and survival mode. She.is.just.fantastic! 🙌🏻😍🙌🏻

My Cr8zysockbookblock  blog wrap up : 

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐⭐️- This book is all you could want in a Mafia/Second Chance/Secret Baby Romance. It captured everything I was looking for and more. 

It was so full of secrets, lies, action. It was full of suspense, angst, GAH the sex! My heart was on edge the whole time! 💔 Everything going on, fabulous!! These characters are fantastic and complex and I’m dying for “Him”

🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥-OMG! Their encounters were SO.FREAKIN.HOT!! Lev is Alpha AF and made Katerina submit in the hottest of ways. Fanning and dying, fanning and dying🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥

🌪Cliffhanger Warning- 🌪🌪🌪HOLY CLIFFHANGER! You will NOT get resolution in this book! Book two is coming!! 😳🤯😳🤯
