The thrilling new follow up to the new adult bestseller Me, Cinderella? by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Aubrey Rose!
Happily ever after is just what they say in books. Real life is MUCH more complicated.
Brynn can’t believe her good luck. Her Cinderella story continues as she finds herself studying math in a castle on the edge of a Hungarian forest. However, no fairy tale lasts forever, and a letter about her mother’s death opens up a whole new world of nightmares…
Eliot, finally back in Hungary, is haunted by the lie he told ten years ago to protect his family. Now he finds that he can no longer hide his dark past from Brynn, and time is running out to finish his life’s work in mathematics.
The problem that neither one of them can solve is this:
Once broken, can two shattered lives ever be made whole again?
I’d like to think that the life of the prince and princess in fairy tales actually begins when the story ends. After they met and confessed their love and it said they live happily ever after. That’s when my curiosity begins. I’m curious of what will happen next to Cinderella and the prince. Could they really accept each other despite of their differences? How do people around them affect their love and life? Can they forgive and forget their past? And so on and so forth. Broken Prince is that kind of story. Brynn and Eliot fall in love and have their happy ending at the end of Me, Cinderella?Now they journey begins.
First part of the story felt so slowly. The insecurities, doubt and Brynn and Eliot inability to talk their feeling and fear made me wanted them to stop beat around the bush. But it didn’t mean I was bored, not at all. Although it was slow, it still can draw me to read it. It was like I have to take it slowly and patiently to understand Brynn and Eliot better. And I did understand them better. So when second part of the story began, I felt like the pace changed, faster with so many things happened at the same time. In some part, I felt it was more depressing than previous book, but I think it’s understandable since their also tried to conquer their demons here, rather than just pursuit their happiness. And in other part, which I liked more, I can see the choices that Brynn and Eliot have and how it affected their life. I especially liked when they chose and set their priorities.
But there were also things I didn’t quite like because it felt too easily to be true. So I was kind of questioning it.
