“Fairy tales for adults” is what this Harlequin/Mills and Boon line is all about, and The Greek’s Pregnant Cinderella goes one step further by actually making this a (steamy) Cinderella retelling.

I won’t lie: I’m not the biggest fan of pregnancy storylines, but the gorgeous blue dress on the cover won me over. I read this book on a trip to and from Sydney, and it was exactly the entertainment I wanted to break up the journey.

Packed full of popular tropes, and with all the elements a fairy tale retelling should have, I’m glad I picked it up.

Naturally, with the Cinderella storyline featuring some over-the-top nasty female characters, you are also going to get that here. However, because of the precedent, I – someone who hates negative stereotyping of women more than any other trope – was willing to forgive it. I also appreciated that the “bad” women were balanced out with plenty of nice women.

I liked the way everything came together, and while the alpha male characters in this line can be a bit too cruel, I do think the issues between hero and heroine resolved themselves well here.

Also appreciated was that the downtrodden heroine really came into her own at the end.

Finally, I loved that the hero’s Santorini house. I stayed in something similar (but much, much smaller!) when I was there, and the whole feel of the place was well-described.
