Me and Cinderella (The Dirty Rooster #2) by Kelly Mooney – Review by Emily Walsh

Me and Cinderella (The Dirty Rooster #2)Me and Cinderella
By: Kelly Mooney
My Rating: 4 of 5 stars

Me and Cinderella (The Dirty Rooster #2) by Kelly Mooney was a pretty great read that will pull at those heart strings.

Not my first read from this author or in this series, but though this book is part of a series it reads as a standalone. So no worries if you haven’t read the first book.

This book is a fun read thats both witty and bouncy, as well as emotional and heart melty. The only thing that I didn’t quite like, is a common theme I see with these types of books. The male MC calling female MC, innocent and what not. It’s a pet-peeve of mine, and I don’t find it endearing or a complement to call a grown woman innocent. I don’t want to get into it, cause I’ll be here all day, but in the long run, you can make a character complex and multi layer without adding words like innocent, only to find out..”they aren’t so.” you know, sexy wise.

Other than that, I very much enjoyed this story. I loved how it wasn’t just about the romance, and that Eli was there for his family. That added extra layer that made this story more than your normal mushy romance. It added a complexity to the overall plot and storyline. Eli was an outstanding character and he really stole the show. I honestly think that the author did an amazing job on Eli, and though I did like Remy, and she was also a great character, Eli just, glowed, and was a powerhouse.

Overall this story is a must read, and it gets my super high recommendation and my stamp go approval.

Happy Reading

This is such a great second book to follow up The Dirty Rooster. It can be read as a stand alone but, I would recommend reading the first book to get some background. Also, the first book is just plain great!

This book is the story of Eli, who is one of Preston’s best friends from the first book. His life is rough, he had a crap childhood and was always busting his butt to provide for his younger brother Brandon and sister Shea. I admire him for not getting into any risky trade and working hard at menial jobs to get himself through high school and on to college. His father is an abusive jerk who is in jail and, his mother can’t be bothered to provide for the kids because she is too busy drinking and doing drugs. The fact that he graduated college and went on to become successful enough to pay for everything himself as well as send money to his sister and brother to make sure they were comfortable, is heartwarming.

When Eli returns home to make sure Brandon and Shea are going to be okay with his father getting out of jail soon, he reunites with his long lost love Remington. She is set to be married but seems to have cold feet, and then the only place she can run and hide is at Eli’s place. This all makes for a beautiful, frustrating and overdue reunion for these two.

Eli and Remy are a great couple and it is beautiful that the rich girl fell for the guy from the “wrong side of the tracks” even though, Eli is a better man than any of the rich snobs at her father’s country club. Overall, a great read, with lots of romance, drama and little crime.

Me and Cinderella (The Dirty Rooster Book 2) by Kelly Mooney is an excellent contemporary romance. Life has a way of setting individuals on a particular path regardless of how they may wish their lives would go. As we all know, the past cannot always remain there; sometimes it comes back for a reason that is worthwhile, yet in other ways it’s one we need to overcome and conquer. Remy and Eli are magnetic characters and it’s seen throughout their interactions despite the events that have occurred. Their story was brilliantly written and I could not get enough. The drama that was an unpleasant undertone in the story added additional depth and development to some of the characters that was well done. Another amazing story by Kelly Mooney!!

Me And Cinderella is the 2nd book in the Dirty Rooster series by Kelly Mooney. Although characters from the first book Dirty Rooster return, these books can be read as a stand-alone. I had thoroughly enjoyed the first book and was looking forward to reading this one. It didn’t disappoint.
This is a lovely contemporary romance that draws you in from the very beginning and you won’t want to put it down. The characters in this book are so well written, you can’t help but feel every emotion they are going through.
Eli Young has returned to a home that he vowed never to return to. His dad is getting out of prison and Eli goes home to make sure that his younger siblings are ok, particularly 17 year old Brandon who is only weeks away from getting away too to start life at college.
What Eli didn’t expect to return to is that his little sister’s roommate is none other than the beautiful Remington (Remy), the one girl that Eli has never really got over. What’s worse is that the story starts on Remy’s wedding day.
This story will drag you through ever emotion possible. I’m sincerely hoping that there is more to come from the Dirty Rooster series as the first 2 books have been fantastic. Both definitely worth 5 stars from me.

AHHH!
Omg I think I loved this book even more than I loved the first one and I loved that one. I didn’t think it could’ve been topped but I apparently was wrong!

Eli has finally returned home because in a just a few short weeks his father will be released from prison. When he returned home to help his family out was the girl he left 9 years ago. He’s always had a thing for Remy but never acted on it until now. She’s always been considered off limits until now….

I loved every aspect of this story. Eli is an incredibly loving family man and the sparks between him and Remy are explosive. Kelly Mooney hit this one out of the park!

Me and Cinderella by Kelly Mooney is the second book in the Dirty Rooster series. As much as I loved the first book I think I loved this one more.

Eli and his family grabbed my heart from the very beginning and didn’t let go, especially his baby brother Brandon. I really hope we get to read about Shea and Brandon to see what happens in their future.

Remmington is not the spoiled rich girl you would expect. She loves with her whole heart but only those who deserve it and not many people deserve her level of love and loyalty.

I really loved this book. It had a little of everything laughter, tears, suspense and of course happiness. Cannot wait to read more by this author.

Me and Cinderella is the second book in the Dirty Rooster series by Kelly Mooney. This book can be read as a stand alone, but I would recommend reading the first book first. They are both excellent and there are recurring characters. This book hooked me from the very first page and I couldn’t put it down until the last. I love the depth of the characters and how the whole store feels like real life. This is Eli and Remy’s story. They have off the charts chemistry and the witty banter had me laughing out loud. This was a book that gave me all the feels. I can’t wait to see what Ms. Mooney has in store for us. I highly recommend this read.

Four Stars

I’m all for sticking it to the man. But don’t back down when they material things over you. The things that made me enjoy this story was how he came back even the never wanted to. I really enjoyed the characters mostly Shea. She was the best character. She was fun and light and could bulldoze a conversation into the outcome she wanted. I didn’t like the parents and I was shocked at how much Rem gave to please them. I hope to never be a parent that stops my child from living the life they choose.

Me and Cinderella was a great 5 star read and book two in The Dirty Rooster series.
I loved this story so much, once I started I couldn’t put it down. It was a late night (early morning for me)

Eli has returned home for a few weeks because his dad is going to be released from prison soon. He wants to help his little brother and possibly his mother. What he didn’t prepare for was Remy living with his sister Shea. Remy is the woman he left behind nine years ago, she is his sisters best friend. Remy is the rich girl he wasn’t good enough for, so he thought. She has turned into a very beautiful woman and has sparked something in him.

She was downright the sweetest girl I knew, but she was always going to be Cinderella to me. She was the delicate flower I spent years protecting, and I ended up being the one who crushed her.

Remy has her own drama going on and when Eli finds her in his room he is shocked. He does a great job of supporting her and they end up getting even closer. We get some very hot and steamy moments from them. What will happen when Eli leaves in a few weeks? Will he stay or will he ask her to join him? Can they have a HEA?

I loved these two so much and all of the secondary characters were great. I loved his brother and sister but despised Remy’s father. I had near heart failure when there was a huge twist that left me in tears. We do get a well deserved HEA with a great epilogue. I look forward to reading more from this series and I wouldn’t mind seeing more from Remy and Eli.
