Monday Musts

Oh, hey it’s the start of a new week and you know what that means — a new Monday Musts post! Are you ready to see what I’m calling a Must Read, Must Listen and Must See this week?


Must Read

Monday Musts [99]At the Stroke of Midnight by Tara Sivec
Series: Naughty Princess Club #1
Genres: Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publication date: February 27, 2018
Add it: Goodreads
Buy it: Amazon

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 money…and 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.

At the Stroke of Midnight was absolutely delightful! I can’t tell you the last time I laughed as hard — and literally out loud — while reading. My first Tara Sivec book was a total hit. But how could it not be when it was a Cinderella retelling? Especially one where buttoned-up housewife Cindy and her friends Ariel (mouthy redheaded antiques dealer) and Isabelle (shy, sheltered librarian who still lives at home with her father) decide to start a Princess-themed exotic dancer service? Hi-lar-i-ous. (Plus there were plenty of swoons — with PJ Charming, naturally — along the way.)

I’m going with another Kacey Musgraves song this week. This one is sad, but I still love it.

You look out the window
While I look at you
Sayin’ I don’t know
Would be like saying that the sky ain’t blue
And boots weren’t made for sitting by the door
Since you don’t wanna stay anymore

You can have your space, cowboy
I ain’t gonna fence you in
Go on ride away, in your Silverado
Guess I’ll see you ’round again
I know my place, and it ain’t with you
Sunsets fade, and love does too
Yeah, we had our day in the sun
When a horse wants to run, there ain’t no sense in closing the gate
You can have your space, cowboy

This Harry Potter fanfic ruined me. Actual tears were shed.
