No Prince Charming, by Angel Payne, is a modern-day Cinderella story complete with of course the evil stepmother and the devious, conniving and hateful stepsister, who I loved. This book has lots of heartbreak, deception, and of course lusty, steamy scenes.

The best part of the book was Killian Stone, Mr. Prince Charming himself. I enjoyed these authors giving this version of prince charming a total makeover into, in my opinion, the perfect alpha male. He is tall, dark and handsome, the type of guy that every woman looks at when he walks into a room. Now for what kind of drove me crazy, Clair. Clair was smart on the one hand but insecure on the other. Did her job perfectly but was socially awkward and not in a cute way. I did find the chemistry between Killian and Claire pretty hot…but I got whiplash every time Claire ran from him, and oh boy did she run and run. And yes I did get that she was hurt in the past, but time to get over it.

This book was quick and easy to read, the writing, not the best I have ever read, but certainly not the worst. The book was written in the first person, going back and forth between Clair and Killian. I did like the back and forth banter the two had, but there was a bit too much internal dialogue for my personal tastes. I did like the storyline, but there were some parts that I would have liked the authors to expand. I wanted more of Killian’s past and his secrets. I am guessing that it is all in the next book.
