May 14, Olga therebelreader rated it it was ok Shelves: contemporary-romance. I may have enjoyed this read a lot better if I was given a little more introduction to the two main characters. The relationship between them didn't feel right. Seriously, just everything about it was uninspiring overall. It was a force finish for me.
The writing seemed rushed to me, with too much attention to redundant details and dialogues. I'm sorry, but this needs a do over on so many levels. I really wanted to like this after all the good reviews but I guess it just wasn't for me. View all 10 comments.

May 23, Musings of A Romance Junkie rated it it was amazing Shelves: tearjerkers , na-ya , favorites. I've purchased several books by Xavier Neal, but this is the first one I've actually read, and ugh, where do I begin? First of all, have some tissues on standby. This story was so good. This was one finely-written young adult story. Cinderfella is a twist on the classic theme of two people from the opposite sides of the tracks who meet and fall in love only they deal with way more than just social and economic class. This story is not only about class and privilege, but more serious issues like I've purchased several books by Xavier Neal, but this is the first one I've actually read, and ugh, where do I begin?
This story is not only about class and privilege, but more serious issues like teen parentage, domestic abuse, drug abuse, and eating disorders. This is a realistic portrayal of how some teenagers actually live and survive in today's society.
Connor is poor and struggling not only financially, but mentally and emotionally to just make it through until he graduates high school. OMG, I just wanted to scoop this lil girl up and hug and kiss her the whole time I was reading! Connor and Mak live in the seedier part of town with his mom who is not only an alcoholic, but a drug addict, and the town ho.
Every day is a challenge. Connor is not only father to Mak, but also his own mother. Gianna is the spoiled, troubled rich girl who is starving for the affection of her parents. She lashes out by using drugs and getting into all kinds of trouble. She and Connor meet when they are paired in their drama class for a scene they must perform for their final grade.
These two are oil and water and hate each other-in the beginning. Well, you know, one thing leads to another, and despite all efforts to avoid catching feelings, Connor catches feelings.

And so does Gianna. A couple is born.

So much transpires from this point. This is such a great story. This is not about a couple of horny teenagers humping. I would really love a follow up to see how this young family is doing. Click it up! View all 9 comments. May 04, Jeanette rated it it was amazing.
I was given an ARC of this book by the author in exchange for a review. I have read several of Xavier's books and loved them and this one did not disappoint. There are such an array of emotions throughout this story that the author actually makes you f I was given an ARC of this book by the author in exchange for a review. There are such an array of emotions throughout this story that the author actually makes you feel.
Several times throughout I wanted to literally applaud Connor for having the courage to do the right thing and be a man. I wanted to shake his mother however. May 03, Michele rated it it was amazing Shelves: arc. I'm not even sure where to begin with this review. I don't know how many times I've started writing something, but then just trashed it because it doesn't do this book justice. I have to say that Connor is simply amazing and awe inspiring! He's a single dad at a very young age and he does such an amazing job at taking care of his little girl.
He sacrifices so much just to make sure she is happy, and that I'm not even sure where to begin with this review. He sacrifices so much just to make sure she is happy, and that's just only one of the many things that will make you fall in love with Connor. You'll need to read this book to see how really amazing he is! Gianna is something else.
I didn't really like her in the beginning, but you eventually start to understand her. She's definitely your stereotypical spoiled rich kid. She's partied and done all sorts of drugs, and pretty much gets anything she could ever ask for. However the one thing she really wants and needs, is the only thing she never gets. These two are thrown together for a project in their drama class, and things start to get interesting when they spend more and more time together.
The more time their together, the more their wanting to take things forward. The only thing is though, they both have secrets their unwilling to share. Will they ever cross that barrier and be able to put trust in each other? Their secrets aren't the only thing that gets in there way. Gianna is used to having all the money in the world. Connor works himself to the bone just to make sure his daughter has everything that she needs. How can he make Gianna happy if he can't give her what she's accustomed to? I mean, money is what makes everyone happy right?
These two have many hurdles in their young lives. Will they be able to face each hurdle together and break them down? Or will they let these hurdles break them apart? This book has definitely become one of my favorite books from Xavier! It's simply amazing how she has this amazing ability to bring her characters to life in each and ever one of her stories!
May 04, Krystin Sanchez rated it it was amazing. I had to take a day before I jumped in to write this review I don't know where to start!!! This book was amazing and I have a serious book hangover right now I want to read it again!!! I love all of Xavier's books but something about this book just really pulled at my heart strings! Connor has had a hard life, he's an 18 year old single Dad who is basically raising his addict moth I had to take a day before I jumped in to write this review Connor has had a hard life, he's an 18 year old single Dad who is basically raising his addict mother as well as his 3 year old daughter.
When he gets paired up with the richest girl in school on an acting assignment, he thinks things could't possibly get any worse, but they learn they have more in common than they originally thought! Xavier should put a warning label on all of her books letting her readers know that they will be sucked in from page one and end up neglecting everything they had planned on doing I recommend this to anyone who believes in following their dreams and loves a happy ever after!

I kid you not i would rather watch this a movie then the actual Cinderella. I love how you got to see it from a guys point of view instead of a woman's. I took to Conner right away, sweet loving father.

Xavier you really out did this story, I hope there is more to this but if not that is ok too. Mak is the cutest little girl you will ever meet and i just wanted to snatch her up and keep her. Gianna didn't catch a piece of my heart til a bit later in the book but she she did redeem her self. I had to perform my Cinderfella duties! Cinder-fella unknown.
