      3.5 starsAdorable, a sweet and romantic love story with a nice twist about the prince finally working out how to find and catch his sweetheart. Luck and good fortune are shining bright, he takes that opportune moment to be with Cinder. A good fairytale to lift your spirits, a nice comfy, happy story.

    2. A.B. Gayle on said:

      This is a sweet twist on the well known fairytale. The author made a lot of effort to prevent her story following the cliches that abound in the original. Her characters are multi-faceted, not over-blown pantomime extremes. Cinder and his prince aren't perfect but there is still a sugary coating in keeping with the story's theme.By making her lead character a male, she's opened up all sorts of possibilities. Is he happy appearing in female clothing? How does he react to his sudden interest in me [...]

      (ETA from way after everything else below was already written: DON'T BE FOOLED. THIS BOOK ISN'T REALLY SET IN 16TH CENTURY FRANCE. IT'S ACTUALLY SET IN A VERY FRENCH-FIED AMERICAN ANTEBELLUM SOUTH. LIKE, LOUISIANA OR SOMETHING [as opposed to Georgia or North Carolina, etc.]. For more information, read below)(Post-review ETA: It is highly unfortunate for the author that I am somewhat of a history buff and an aficionado of the 16th-17th century, especially Henrican and Elizabethan times. By this, [...]

      Reviewed on Hearts On Fire heartsonfirereviews/This was a delightful spin on the Cinderella fairy tale. Alain's father remarries a woman with two daughters who takes an instant dislike to Alain. His father dies and all of the household servants are replaced with strangers that know nothing of Alain while his stepmother shoves him into a dress hiding his true identity. Treated like another servant, Alain sleeps in the kitchen and dreams of getting away. There is a huge ball at the castle which th [...]

      What if Cinderella was not a little girl? What if in reality she was a little boy whose wicked, twisted and absolutely diabolic stepmother erased him, re-dressed him, re-named him, gave him made status in order to take his inheritance. After all a young Master is always a Master no matter his age, but what if there were no Master at all?I must admit my curiosity went up in enormous proportions when I got this book. And I’ll say one thing, if Cinderella’s fairytale got me as a kid, Cinder’s [...]

      This is my first book from Kayla and I loved it. It was such a sweet spin on a classic tale. You not only get to find out how the prince catches the love (in disguise) but you also get to see beyond that and how true love can be found in unlikely places, even for a guy forced to live a lie. It was a beautiful read and Kayla has earned herself a new reader.

      3.5 starsThis is a cute, gay, retelling of Cinderella. There is the evil stepmother, the horrid stepsisters, the ball, the prince and the lost slipper. Of course with it being M/M, the characters aren't quite as they are in the original classic. :)A quick, fun read.I love the cover. :)

      This was a nicely written short M/M retelling of Cinderella. It did deviate a tad from the original (obviously) but it kept true to the feel and the roots of the Cinderella theme. It was sweet, it was nice, and I enjoyed my time reading it. And I just love that cover. Full review atOn Top Down Under Book Reviews -bookreviewsandtherapy

      It was a cute little romp through the classic tale. I've read better, as well as worse. I will give thanks to the author for not making Cinder girly . Overall I would rate it a solid 3, and worth re-reading and a recommendation to any who need a tea break and a sweet escape . I noticed no huge distracting grammar errors.

      Now I just want to say that I am a huge fan of fairy tales and genuinely enjoy the retellings of them too. I have no objections to the idea of spinning the Cinderella myth to a M/M couple either. But for me, this one just really didn’t work. It’s overly simplistic and yet comes at things from the strangest angle. It assumes a lot of forgiveness on the part of the reader to my way of thinking.Cinder’s stepmother runs the household and after his father died forced him into a life of servitud [...]

      Kayla Jameth has turned the fairytale world on its ear by putting a new spin on the well-known story of Cinderella. In this unique and clever m/m story a young man is forced into the Cinderella role when his nefarious step-mother hides his true gender to keep the inheritance that should have gone to him upon his father's death. As he gets older he longs to shed the disguise forced on him and become the man his body is pushing him to be. For too long he's been malnourished both physically and men [...]

      This was odd. I've read a lot of m/m retellings of fairy tales--some of which I've LOVED, and some of which I've hated to the point of ranting. But I've not yet found one quite as odd as this.This was basically the Disney version of Cinderella (even opening with the stepmother shouting the name with the shrill emphasis on the "ella") but with healthy doses of Drew Barrymore's Ever After, and even a few moments from the old Slipper and the Rose. The big difference is that Cinderella is really a b [...]

      This charming retelling of the Cinderella tale gives us a Cinderfella with wonderful period feeling and just enough magic to make it all work.We all know the premise, but here, the author puts us into the sixteenth century French court, complete with politics, scheming and deception. Our hero has been stripped of his birthright, and in truly wicked fairy tale fashion he’s also been forced to dress and live as a woman. Even his fellow housemaids aren’t too clear that one of these servants is [...]

      3 1/2 *The fairytale of Cinderella has always been one of my favorites. A story that tells you that you don't necessarily have to be a princess to find your prince Charming - you only have to be yourself (and of course a fairy godmother helps A LOT!). I remember that as a little boy who fell in love with other boys, I hoped that there could be a fairytale where prince Charming met his male true love, but it seemed that fairy tales were only for straight children. Well, I still found my "prince C [...]

      **I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review**This was a fun take on the classic Cinderella story. Now, I don’t want to spoil the book, but I loved the surprise (to me at least) ending and how it was different from the usual ending. That definitely made the book stand out more for me, and I’m glad the author took the risk and made it her own.Another thing I loved was the humor. There were parts where I just burst out laughing, which made the story even better. The only t [...]

      Cute little Cinderella story with a M/M twist. I read along eagerly, trying to figure out how in the world the author was going to work the story out. I really liked the way the twist ending was handled and it really did lend a nice, believable happily ever after for the couple. My only regret is that the couple didn't share more conversation at the ball--but then I supposed that fated pairs do have that instant and sure connection that brings them together without many words needing to be said.

      Pass a couple of hours in the company of Cinder (Alain) and his Prince, Henri and you won't be disappointed. You know the Cinderella story, but you don't know it like this. Sweet, sexy and definitely not run-of-the-mill.

      OMG!!!! This was awesome. I'm a huge male/male fan and I loved this book. It was short and sweet and I really could feel the emotions of the characters. I loved the twist on this Cinderella story. This author has a new fan in me. I can't wait to read more of her books.

      Big point for the prince for figuring things out, rare case in fairytales. I liked both Cinder and his fated Prince Charming.

      You're My PrinceA wonderful take on the classic fairy tale; Cinderella. A perfectly sweet retailing with a hot Prince who finds his 'Cinder-fella.'

      For a short story this was really cute. I enjoyed the take on Cinderella using a man who was forced to be a "Girl".

      Typical Cinderella story altered very slightly for m/m genre, complete with wicked stepmother and stepsisters. Same premise of stepmom stealing Cinder's (what he prefers to be called) inheritance after his dad dies. Story change comes with the prince. In this case the prince is (view spoiler)[a second son (hide spoiler)] which leaves the story with no real conflict. Cinder falls in love immediately and the prince is right there with him. The evil stepfamily gets no retribution and that's just a [...]

    27. Erin Penn on said:

      Cinderella story revisited as a MM romance - with a wonderful Happily Ever After (HEA) ending good enough for a fairy tale. The stepmother and sisters do not get their due like in traditional Grimm, because of the focus of romance between the Prince and Cinder.The story did stay a little too long on Cinder's anguish and not enough time was spent with the Prince. But other then that, a gay romp for an afternoon with two sweet men.

      The cover is OK though I don't know how anyone could mistake that guy for a girl. Otherwise, I am speechless.
