One kind deed can change your life forever...
Brynn Tomlin could never afford to follow her heart. But when she sees a stranger shivering in the snow outside of the college library, an inexplicable urge leads her to buy him a hot cup of coffee. It's just a small act of kindness, a few words of conversation. Brynn should be focusing on her finals, after all, not on the man who looked up at her gratefully with piercing blue eyes.
He could have been anyone - a janitor on break, a graduate student, a bum. But the man standing outside in the cold turns out to be Dr. Eliot Herceg, one of the most brilliant minds in mathematics and heir to a fortune. After years of reclusive isolation, he now finds his heart awakening to the kind girl whose name he does not know.
Brynn has spent her life trying to forget her desires, and Eliot's deep wounds have taken nearly a decade to heal. After so much hurt, will either of them be able to open their hearts again?
This is going to be a very short review of Me, Cinderella. I was drawn in by the synopsis and thought this sounded like a great read. Once I started reading I quickly realized that this one wasn’t what I thought it was going to be.
Upon meeting Eliot, Brynn tells him her name but it isn’t really her name. It’s a fake name. I’m not sure what the purpose of that was. I’m still sort of confused about it.
As far as Brynn goes, I found her to be likable, but there wasn’t really anything that stood out about her. In the synopsis it refers to Bynn as the type of person who is trying to forget her desires. I’m not sure where that came from. It’s made apparent that she’s a virgin and not a vixen. Again I’m a bit confused by this.
Eliot was sort of a strange fellow. I could see why he would close himself off from others. He suffered a terrible loss and he blames himself because of it.
There was a lot of push and pull between Bynn and Eliot within this story, but by the time they finally came together I was sort of over it.
I tried really hard to like this one. I really did. It just wasn’t for me.
