Molly Ivers thinks she is falling for the opposite of Prince Charming, and she knows she should give him up, but, oh, the temptation.
WHEN YOU WISH UPON A STAR
Molly Ivers thought she found Prince Charming, but without a devilishly sexy accent, and six months ago she gave into their undeniable attraction. But the swarm of ever-present groupies was so not part of the fairy tale. As much as it hurt her heart, she shut out rocker Evan Castle.
Now, on the verge of finishing her graduate degree and moving to Paris—she even hires a French life coach—Molly begins to realize Evan, who hasn't given up on her, might be the man of her dreams after all.

Roxanne D. Howard's FLIP THE BEAT is an entertaining, coming of age (college age) story with hints of Cinderella. Molly Ivers is about to graduate and then head off to Paris as an intern for a museum. Not having much time for dating or relationships, she does have it bad for Evan Castle, resident hottie and musician. Some months prior, Molly did a very good deed and was rewarded with her own fairy godfather, in the form of a life coach who makes her an unbelievable offer. What ensues is the transformation of Molly, which has nothing to do with all the new clothes and makeover and everything to do with her becoming more attuned to who she is and being completely comfortable with it.
Likes: I really liked the juxtaposition between Evan Castle and Professor Sullivan as Molly learns not to judge a book by its cover (this theme comes up several times). Both Molly and Evan are incredibly likeable characters as are the secondary characters including roommate and bestie, Nell, who is both the voice of reason and the voice of fun. And there are some laugh out loud moments that really add to the story.
Dislikes: There's a tremendous amount of sex in this story, which normally, I don't find particularly off-putting (and I'm sure it's a selling point for many) but there were times where I found myself wishing for more plot development and less sex.
Overall, this is a fun, college-age story that's an easy read and can easily be finished in an afternoon. It has a very sweet happily ever after and will give you an easy case of the feel goods.
