A wicked stepsister, a sexy prince, and a one-night stand revisited. Cinderella, eat your heart out.
Once upon a time, there was a young woman of beauty, grace, and good nature…
Blah. Blah. Blah.
Rowyn Jeong knows her no-nonsense, less than warm personality cannot compare to her stepsister Cindy's bubbly charm and beauty. Hey, everyone has their niche, right? But being the plainer, wicked stepsister has never bothered her more than when Darius Fiore reappears in her life. Darius Fiore, the man she indulged in a one-night stand with six months ago, the businessman threatening her position within her stepfather's company, and the man her sister has her eyes—and hands—on.
Rowyn has never forgotten the man who allowed her to be someone else for a few sex-filled hours. Now that Darius has turned up in her territory, will he see past the hard exterior to the woman beneath, the one hungry for love and acceptance?

Lovers of adult fairy tales will love Naima Simone's take on the well-known tale of Cinderella and her own snarky heroine.
Rowyn Jeong is Cinderella, laboring in her stepfather's company without being given due recognition. Her dysfunctional family consisted of a divorced mother who remarried a man who came with a daughter of his own. While her younger stepsister was pampered and could do nothing wrong, her family could find no good in Rowyn. Disheartened and despairing, she indulged in a one-night stand, where she had a fabulous, mind-blowing sex with a stranger whom she had no intention of seeing again.
Yet, six months later, who should she see in her stepfather's house but Darius Fiore, the very same man whom she ran out on while he slept. This time, Darius was here to take over her stepfather's company, in fact, the very division Rowyn was managing. He expressed an interest in taking up where they left off, but was it all a ruse to make sure he got the business merger he was angling for?
Rowyn is certainly as different from the original Cinderella as could be, but both possessed a vulnerability that tugged at the reader. What I love in this short tale was that the mother and the stepsister got the comeuppance they deserved, from Rowyn no less. Every heroine should speak up and fight for her own happiness, instead of relying on Prince Charming.
Of course, it doesn't hurt to catch the eye of a gorgeous Darius Fiore, who wanted to play Prince Charming to the hilt. Not only is he attractive, but the man is smart and business savvy, too. Their intimate scenes were hot and steamy, especially the opening scene. What a way to start a book!
A short, delightful tale, A PERFECT FIT is a must read for fairy tale lovers.
