Title: Fragments of Ash, a modern fairytale
Author: Katy Regnery
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: October 1, 2018
A twisted, retelling of Cinderella is exactly up my alley. I am a sucker for fairytale retells of any type but especially when they are twisted. Evil-stepmother is now an evil-stepfather. Evil stepsisters are now evil stepbrothers. Fairy godmother is now fairy godfather. You get the idea. It is awesome, wonderful, and perfect.
Ashley was dealt a raw deal on life yet she doesn’t have that oh poor me attitude, she accepts things for what they are, knows that she doesn’t want to settle for the life she is given, and is not willing to bend to the stepfather’s rules. I liked that she did what she had to just to survive but she also did what was needed to become a better person than her mother and achieve the goals that she wanted. I liked that she took a risk in life and knew that it was the only way that she could escape the life her mom left her in.
Julian and Ashley together were a slow, hot, and beautiful friendship. They were thrown together by the fairy godfather and were not happy about it but it was in Ashley’s best interested for her to be with Julian. Instantly there was an attraction, a heat, but neither of them acted on it. Julian because he had been burned by a past relationship, Ashley because she was new to relationships. It was wonderful to watch they come together as friends, confidents, and eventually something more.
Katy Regnery is an author that I am excited to read more of. I am a fan of fairytales and she has proven to be a talented writer of them.
From New York Times bestselling author Katy Regnery comes a dark and twisted retelling of the beloved fairytale, Cinderella!
My name is Ashley Ellis…
I was thirteen years old when my mother – retired supermodel, Tig – married Mosier Răumann, who was twice her age and the head of the Răumann crime family.
When I turned eighteen, my mother mysteriously died. Only then did I discover the dark plans my stepfather had in store for me all along; the debauched “work” he expected me to do.
With the help of my godfather, Gus, I have escaped from Mosier’s clutches, but his twin sons and henchmen have been tasked with hunting me down. And they will stop at nothing to return my virgin body to their father
…dead or alive.
