Cinderella-ish: Razzle My Dazzle, Book 1 is a contemporary romantic comedy written by Joslyn Westbrook. Daniella Belle had been designing clothing since she was a little girl living unloved and lonely in a foster home. As she grew older, her focus narrowed in on women’s lingerie and, upon graduation from high school, she left Dallas to study at LA’s Fashion Institute of Design. While she was a student, she had gotten a live-in job as a nanny to Emma, Stacy’s daughter. Stacy, a successful entertainment lawyer, had no problems keeping Daniella on, even as Emma reached her late teens. The three of them had become a close-knit and loving family, but Stacy knew Daniella longed to be involved in creating her lingerie fashions professionally. Stacy was excited for her friend and pleased when she found the Google Alert which mentioned that Antonio Michaels of CraveMe Lingerie needed a personal assistant. This could be Daniella’s start. She was smartly dressed in white and ready to impress when she boarded the metro for her appointment. Moments later, her dress was smeared with red jelly from a hot, if wise-assed, fellow commuter, who seemed to take more than a little pleasure in her predicament.

Joslyn Westbrook’s contemporary romantic comedy, Cinderella-ish: Razzle My Dazzle, Book 1, is a breezy and fast-paced tale about the sparks that fly when a woman who’s sworn off men finds herself working with a man who excites her with his every move. While the budding romance is sweet and builds beautifully, the high points of this compelling and humorous tale concern the partnership Daniella and Antonio embark upon together. I loved seeing how well their ideas complement each other’s, and how they form a synergistic team that seems unbeatable. The preparations they make for the fashion show in Milan are fascinating to follow and give the reader a real sense of what goes on in preparing for a show of this stature, from drawing table through to the music, order lineup and set design. Cinderella-ish: Razzle My Dazzle, Book 1 is a sweet romance that works on a number of levels, and it’s most highly recommended.
