#BookReview: How to Survive a Modern-Day Fairy Tale by Elle Cruz

Synopsis:  This is no ordinary Cinderella story from #OwnVoices debut author Elle Cruz. Claire never believed in fairy tales—that is, until she met Nate—in this fun, flirty rom-com.

Claire Ventura is nothing like the poised and perfect heroines she reads about in her favorite romance novels. She’s a quirky, people-pleasing bookworm with a degree in Women’s Studies and an internet cookie decorator all rolled into a five-foot-two package fueled by chamomile tea.

And most of all, Claire loves her grandmother, Lola. Claire was always her favorite grandchild, and they shared a special bond. So when Lola inches into her nineties and Alzheimer’s starts chipping away at the vital and independent woman she used to be, the whole family dynamic starts shifting in a new direction.

Then Claire meets Nate, the CEO of a mega tech company, and he takes her to Paris. Hailed as the next Mark Zuckerberg, Nate is a fast-rising star in the tech industry, and he’s just fallen head-over-heels for Claire. Together, Claire and Nate must learn to navigate their personal and professional lives and, in the end, Nate proves to Claire that fairytale endings are really just the beginning.

This title will be released on November 30, 2021.

My Review:  This insta-love story was a weird one.  I don't mind insta-love but it has to be plausible and this one just wasn't.  It didn't feel like there was any real reason for the romance in this book.  I didn't really care about the characters plight and their road to romance.  So unfortunately this one just fell flat for me.  

About the Author

Elle Cruz writes heartfelt, steamy contemporary romance. It all started when she got her hands on a historical romance novel at the tender age of thirteen, and there was no turning back. By day, Elle works in the health-care industry, but at night she’s writing swoon-worthy stories that are passionate and fun all rolled into one. She is married to a sexy city official and is the mother of two gritty goofballs. She lives in Southern California.
