{Synopsis} – Ella Coach has one wish: revolution. Her mother died working in a sweatshop, and Ella wants every laborer in the Blue Kingdom to receive fairer treatment. But to make that happen, she’ll need some high-level support . . .

Prince Dash Charming has one wish: evolution. The Charming Curse forced generations of Charming men to lie, cheat, and break hearts — but with the witch Envearia’s death, the curse has ended. Now Dash wants to be a better person, but he doesn’t know where to start . . .

Serge can grant any wish — and has: As an executive fairy godfather, he’s catered to the wildest whims of spoiled teenagers from the richest, most entitled families in Blue. But now a new name has come up on his list, someone nobody’s ever heard of . . . Ella Coach.

{My thoughts} – Megan Morrison has written an incredible retelling of Cinderella. I’d really expected it to be much like the original story, however, it is quite the opposite, which is why it is so incredible!

Ella Coach is your typical girl that comes from a poor family. Her mother dies from the Roop, a disease that is life threatening if it isn’t treated. She’d worked in the labor factories. Ella’s father then ends up marrying another woman not two years later. This other woman has two children and they become Ella’s new family, with her father.

Everything in Ella’s world changes at this point. She is forced to attend a boarding school for the rich. She is forced to mingle with the very people she can’t stand to be around. Eventually, things start to get better when she meets Prince Dash. He is the key to changing her entire world, once again.

If your interested in getting to know more about Ella and Prince Dash then this is the perfect story for you. It also includes some of the characters and elements from the previous book. It’s always fun to read and see where the story is going once the author continues to add to it.

What happens in this book is nothing short of amazing. The tale within the pages is interwoven so nicely that it’ll leave you thirsting for much much more. I look forward to reading the next book in the series very soon!

Final Conclusion: 5 Star Rating.
