Summary

A ball, a gown, a pumpkin, and a happily ever; this standalone, contemporary YA romance has them all.
When Ella receives an exciting invitation to attend an exclusive boarding school, she knows she won't fit it. These kids are elite, wealthy, and driven. She's 'average Ella' on a scholarship, at least, that's what she wants everyone to believe. A lost shoe, a lost shirt, oh my. When events push her to need a boyfriend, Ella asks hot senior Hale.
His response? "No."
Yep. That's her fairytale.
Hale's driven, and he needs an A on the fall project. He doesn't need the sweet but average scholarship girl screwing up his grade - not after last year. Tanking science will ruin his entry into a top pre-med program. He's focused. School. Homework. Rowing. No girl's going to mess up his plan. Not even one as intriguing as Ella.
These two meet in ashes, sparks fly, and their lives light up.
Once upon a time.

Not the standard quality

Although the narrator did a good job, this book sounded as though an amateur had recorded it. It was a very poor quality product.
The story was good and the narrator had a good voice.

Recording quality awful, a Texan with an Irish accent?

The recording quality for this book is horrible. It sounds like it was recorded with two tin cans with a stirring attaching them together.

I also do not understand how the main character is from Texas and the story is being read but a woman with what sounded to me like an Irish accent. It was off putting.

I couldn’t finish this book because of the poor recording quality. I’m glad it was part of the romance package and I could remove it from my library without feeling like I wasted money.

The readers matter... the recording quality matters. I don’t like giving bad reviews but I need to be honest.

Disappointing Sound Quality

I was extremely excited about this book. However I was severely disappointed in the sound quality. The book and performance were good, even if the author stumbled over some words and ended chapters abruptly. Overall, I liked the story but felt like the audible book was a waste of money.
