Meet the Naughty Princess Club: a brand new series from USA Todaybestselling author Tara Sivec that introduces readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarityand romancethat ensue when three women start a new business to make it rain.

Once upon a time Cynthia was the perfect housewife. Between being the President of the PTA and keeping her home spotless without a hair (or her pearls) out of place, her life was a dream come true. Her husband was once her knight in shining armor, but now he’s run off with all their moneyand the babysitter.

Dressed as a princess at the annual Halloween block party on Fairytale Lane, she meets two other “princesses” also facing money troubles: antique store owner Ariel and librarian Isabelle. When the women are invited to wear their costumes to a party where they’re mistaken for strippers, Cindy, Ariel, and Belle realize that a career change could be the best way to make their money problems go bippity-boppity-boo.

But can structured Cindy approach a stripper pole without sanitizing wipes? And could the blue-eyed anti-prince that has been crossing her path become Cindy’s happily ever after? At the Stroke of Midnight is a hilarious, empowering story where princesses can save themselves while slaying in stilettos.

Imagine Desperate Housewives. The street. A cul-de-sac with all the rich-people mansions.
And then there's poor Cynthia. She's been left by her husband of 13 years. He ran away with all the money and the young babysitter. And Cynthia is trying to keep her life going. Without anyone noticing how bad things are. And people in that street are curious and nosy and mean and gossipy.
But then she meets Ariel and Isabelle and a weird friendship starts.
All three of them need money fast. What to do?
We're not on Weeds here - we're not doing the housewife selling drugs thing. But we might sell a little bit of ourselves - let's be strippers, they decide!!!

A chick with no filter, a prude and a librarian come into a strip-club .... ☺☺☺

Then there's this hot guy popping up everywhere ... so there might also be a new romance on the horizon! ☺

What will happen with Cynthia & her new friends??
Will we get a happily ever after??

That was fun!
We're on this typical american suburban street with all that comes with it. The nosy neighbors, the gossip. And Cynthia doesn't want to lose her standing in the street. She's been the perfect housewife for 13 years. But her new friends and her new business might change her life a bit - or a lot!

Those three are so hilarious! Ariel, the antique dealer with absolutely NO filter. The prude housewife Cynthia. Innocent librarian Belle. They SO don't fit together as best friends, but it works perfectly.
And hottie PJ - phew! Cynthia only has to let go of all her fears first, before she can start the next chapter of her life. Both professionally and in the romance department!

I just loved reading it.
Cinderella meets Weeds & The Desperate Housewives!
Absolutely hilarious and adorable and sweet and I SO need Netflix to come and make a show out of this book! ☺

The only thing that didn't work for me ... the cover. The guy on the cover is a typical cover guy - I would totally love that. I've seen him on covers before. But then they went and photoshopped that blonde girl on there. And that is not Cynthia. It might be Ariel and mayyybe a later-in-the-book Cynthia, but definitely not early Cynthia! And it looks sooo completely wrong and photoshopped. What is her arm resting on? Not the best cover-work I've ever seen. BUT, bla bla, don't judge a book by it's weird cover and all that.☺ JUST GO AND READ IT!!!!

AT THE STROKE OF MIDNIGHT was such a hilarious & sexy & adorable Cinderella meets Desperate Housewives meets Weeds RomCom! Run to your nearest amazon asap - you need to meet these ladies! And PJ of course ... but HANDS OFF ... he's MINE!☺

.... and now hurry - I need to read Ariel's & Belle's stories asap! ☺

ARC received via Netgalley for an honest review

Tara Sivec is at her hilarious best with her new Naughty Princess Club series.

It is comedy gold. From the first word to the the last I was in stitches as Cynthia, Ariel and Belle embark on new exciting and funny adventures.

At The Stroke of Midnight is a sexy new telling of Cinderella

Believe me when I say, you will never look at Cinderella, The Little Mermaid and Beauty and The Beast the same - ever!

I was kept on the edge of my seat, laughing so much and just needing to know where the story would go next.

And ladies, if you don't swoon at the Charming in this story, well, there must be something wrong with you!

Oh, and when frickle meets frackle - dies!

Get swept up in the Wysteria Lane-ish antics of these ladies. You won't regret it.

I cannot wait for book 2!
