I Hate Cinderella

Post navigation

But I LOVE LOVE LURVE this book! I stayed up until 2 in the morning Monday reading it. Guess I needed something to clear my palate after that episode of Saved

I normally don’t care for fairy tale reincarnations but this is so much more and I wanted it from the first time I heard about it over at LSC.
Here’s a blurb

Nola Devlin has a secret identity. By day she is an overweight, frumpy, and overlooked editor, but by night she slips behind her keyboard and into her alter ego: Belinda Apple. Belinda is thin, gorgeous, and the author of a glamorous advice column, “OnBeing Fab!” Not even Nola’s two best friends or her jealous sister (who worships Belinda as the “sister she never had”) know her secret.

Nola is shocked when Belinda receives a desperate letter from Deb, her best friend and former cheerleading captain, now also overweight and depressed. Nola resolves to help her friend, and together with their pal Nancy, the trio form the “Cinderella Pact”-a promise to be their own fairy-godmothers and help change one another for good.

But things don’t turn out the way the three friends expect. Deb’s formerly devoted husband drifts further away with every pound she loses, while Nola finds herself caught between a crush on her dreamy boss and the attentions of a charming British reporter. But which of them loves the real Nola? Only when her secret identity is revealed will she find out which man is right for her, and if her two best friends can forgive her deception.

I never really bought the male reporters crush on Nola, he came off as more of a (god forgive me) fairy godfather, but it worked and it worked well. I love this book, it’s going on my keeper shelf and now I have to go glom her backlist :notworthy:
