In this sassy, sexy romantic comedy, Darcy Benton is the oldest cliché in the world - a woman in love with her boss.
Other than that little quirk, Darcy is no-nonsense, practical, mature, and sober. She's just the kind of woman Chase Whitaker wants as head of accounting for his company. She's definitely not the kind of woman he wants in his bed.
Enter Darcy's meddling, matchmaking best friend who has a plan to transform Darcy into a hottie designed to attract Chase's interest. All it takes? A couple of little lies.
Oh, and a wish on a star. Darcy should have heeded that old advice. Be careful what you wish for.
Nobody's Cinderella is book one of San Antone Two-Step.

To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
While Nicole Colburn isn't the best narrator, she did grow on me. The story is cute, and formulaic. However, the journey was fun. The ugly, strait-laced, dowdy accountant becomes a beautiful, sexy, hot woman that the boss couldn't keep his eyes (hands) off of. Great book to listen to while doing chores or walking. I really enjoyed it.
Another very enjoyable book by Joan Reeves! Joan has a way of making the characters in her books seem as if they could be your neighbor.
As an avid audiobook listener, I enjoy it when a narrator makes the characters really come to life. It is what I look for in the audio samples... before I buy. I sincerely think the narrator does a good job and don't understand how anyone could say that this one is monotone. Anything, but!!! I would definitely buy another book narrated by Nicole Colburn.
In any case, Joan Reeves does another fine job with this story, Darcy and Janet rock... can't wait for the next one. Two thumbs up!!!
I would not recommending this book. Mostly because this narrator is horrible.
The story is good enough. Nothing really exciting or special about the story but good enough.
I will be avoiding any future books read by this narrator. She is sooo mono tone and has terrible fluctuations.
Not really the story line is so overused as it is.
Pretty good book but BAD BAD BAD narrator, ruined the whole book for me, nearly stopped reading about 5 times, needs a narrator like Becca Patoe (I think thats her last name, off fifty shades) someone with a bit of enthusiasm and not one mono tone voice throughout the WHOLE book. The girl plays a 23 - 25 year old but that narrator sounded about 50, just REALLY didnt work at all.
A real shame as it was a good story line. Maybe going old school and physically reading this one might be best.
I live in Australia and would find it very expensive to telephone to swap a book, but if I was going to exchange a book for another title, this would certainly be one of them.
I did quite enjoy Joan Reeves other title - Old Enough to Know Better (the first of her books I had heard). It was light, but entertaining.
Unfortunately, I found this book silly, unrealistic - to the extreme with a very poor story line.
Sorry, I don't usually put an author down, but I really don't think this particular title is really worth the effort.
It is a shame, but it has turned me off trying any of her other titles.
