Stealing Cinderella by A. Zavarelli is a dark, Adult Romantic Fantasy Retelling of Cinderella!
*Disclaimer: This book contains mature content and may not be suitable for younger readers*
“Every royal has their dirty little secret. His was… me.
It should have been simple.
Go to the ball, meet the prince, and secure his patronage for my favorite charity.
But beneath the mask, the brooding beast of a man was not at all who I expected.
He was dark and intense and eerily quiet.
When I left, I could still feel the ghost of his touch branded into my skin.
He haunted my dreams, but I never expected to see him again.
Then he came for me.
And he took me.
And I learned that his darkness was a void I never could have conceived.
He’s the crown prince of Norway.
And, now, I’m his captive.”
If you love dark, almost brutal romances with a pretty distinctive retelling on the side, you will really enjoy this one.
We follow the main characters, a modern-day Cinderella and a Norwegian Prince. Neither wants the life they have, and both are about to change each others lives in more way than one.
Now when I say this book is brutal, I mean there is some content that goes above what you’d consider the typical stepfamily’s cruelty. I don’t want to spoil too much but just prepare yourself for vengeance with a BANG!
I gave this book a 3 out of 5 stars. It was a rather interesting read with a sort of modern-day, fantasy vibe. The main plot twist was not what I was expecting, but in a good way. A solid retelling that I’d recommend to dark romance lovers.

“A. Zavarelli is a USA Today and Amazon bestselling author of dark and contemporary romance.
When she’s not putting her characters through hell, she can usually be found watching bizarre
and twisted documentaries in the name of research.
She currently lives in the Northwest with her lumberjack and an entire brood of fur babies.”
