Me and Cinderella (The Dirty Rooster Book 2) by Kelly Mooney – Review by Angelina Frazzini

Me and Cinderella (The Dirty Rooster #2)Me and Cinderella by Kelly Mooney
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Me and Cinderella by Kelly Mooney is book two of The Dirty Rooster Series. This book can be read as a standalone. This book pulled me in right from the beginning and I couldn’t put it down.

Eli swore he would never return to Sugar Creek. He stood by that until his brother needed him. One thing he knew for sure was he couldn’t have anything to do with Remington. He’s always had deep feeling for Remington even though she is his little sister’s best friend.

I absolutely loved this book. There is so much emotion between the characters. The story is so well written that it’s relatable as are the characters. The banter between the characters added a lighthearted element that was a wonderful way to break up the emotion a little. This book truly has it all.

This book was great! I loved the dual POV and the small flashbacks thrown in as well.
I didn’t feel we really got to know Eli, yes we got to see his feelings and actions but I felt I was missing just a little something. He was very in your face and up front on a lot of things.
Remington, or Remy, was a girl I felt a connection to right away. And I loved her teasing of Eli to get him to show his feelings to her.
Loved all the other characters to, and wish to see more.

Me and Cinderella ( The Dirty Rooster Book 2) By Kelly Mooney. This is the 2nd book in The Dirty Rooster series but it can be read as a standalone. I loved this story about Eli and Remington or Remi. He’s such a good guy from the wrong side of town and she is a rich princess from the right side of town with everything she ever needs and more. She becomes best friends with Shea, Eli’s sister and would rather spend time with her than at home. Eli leaves town as soon as he can, goes to college, graduates and is very successful. He has vowed to never return to Sugar Creek but when their father gets out of prison he heads back to take care of his little brother Brandon. He never expects to run right into Remi as soon as he gets back but he does and the chemistry is still there. Remi feels it too but her parents would never approve. Will they both give in to their feelings regardless of everyone else. Read Me and Cinderella to find out.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Kelly Mooney has written a stellar second book in the Dirty Rooster series. This particular one centers around Eli who we learned a bit about in book one. This can be read as a standalone without being super out of the loop about any characters. that being said, I highly recommend book one.
Eli has fought for everything he has in life and even though he hates his home town and never wants to go back, his dead beat dad got out of jail and Eli has to protect his siblings. He never expected his little sister’s best friend to run out on her wedding and come to him. They’re too different and it will never work. But her pull is too strong and Eli knows he will never let her go now. Between fighting for the woman he loves and trying to pull his little brother Brandon out of the poverty of their childhood, Eli needs to keep his wits about him at the worst possible time.
Kelly Mooney is fantastic at putting you right in her characters heads and after reading both this and the first book, all I can say is that I hope this series continues.

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 Book 2) By Kelly Mooney is a contemporary romance story that captivating and quite emotional. Kelly has a way of drawing you in to her stories with her words and makes it so easy to get lost in the story and forget the world around you. I loved the characters, some of whom are in the first book, they are complex and have depth and makes it hard not to feel for them. The story is full of angst and heartbreak, sorrow and hurt but it is also full of wonder and love, strength and uncertainty, trust and there is also humorous banter which is much needed with this type of story and makes you laugh.
He is from the wrong side of the tracks. His past continues to haunt him. He left behind the one person he loved. But he had to find himself, he had to not let his past define him. Now he is back to ensure his brothers future but by being back he is faced with so much from his past. He is the protector who will do anything for his family and the ones he loves.

Remy is the little rich girl who is so much more than her money suggests but she is ruled by an iron thumb when it comes to her parents. Even though it is her big day, she cannot help but think about the one man who stole her heart as a young girl.

The story is well written and well-paced and I highly recommend it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story is right in my wheelhouse. Romance, best friends, best friend’s sexy brother, angst and self-discovery. From the first page to the last, I read the book in one sitting. At 99% I was worried that it would be a cliffhanger, but it’s all wrapped up quickly and satisfactorily.

The characters had depth and the family dynamics were equally disfunctional for both protagonists. It was a well balanced story told in dual POV.

I’m looking forward to reading the sisters story next. I am whole heartedly invested in these characters.

4 solid stars

By Kelly Mooney
Rated 5 stars

This is the second book in this series but it is a definite stand alone. I was confused at the beginning trying to put them all with the characters of the last book. It didn’t fit. But as time went by I became engrossed in these new characters with Eli and I ended up loving the book. There was so much give and take throughout. It had high-highs and Low-lows. The story moved along at a brisk pace. When the MC’s finally get together I can’t help but think wildest dreams. Remy’s Wildest dream comes true…can you imagine? I am so so glad the author wrote how blown away Remy was when she was with Eli. That really made it more believable and enjoyable. There are many many lines that are so…so amazing. Eli is really the sweetest. One of my favorite lines is when Eli is speaking to Remy:

“I’ve always liked me better when I’m around you”

Who wouldn’t want someone to say that to them?

This is a great story! A second time author for me. I look forward to reading the next in the series.

Yay! I was so excited with how well this book turned out! I must confess I really was nervous going into it. I wasn’t a huge fan of the first one in the Dirty Rooster series but I was completely drawn into it enough that I had to come back to see how things would evolve and if they would grow because I could see where it could. Yes it did!! I truly enjoyed this story. Kelly Mooney managed to take a fresh twist to the modern day Cinderfella story idea and I couldn’t get enough. From the moment I first began reading about Eli and Remi I knew they would be one of my favorite couples of the year that I have read. I can’t wait to find out what will come next in the Dirty Rooster series!

I was really looking forward to reading this second book in The Dirty Rooster series especially as I enjoyed book 1 so much and I wasn’t disappointed at all. It can be read as a standalone also. Again like book 1 the story was really well written and I really liked that characters. I like a forbidden romance and this was definitely one of my favourites! The chemistry between the characters was hot and intense but also not too over the top – it made it feel more believable. I could really feel the connection between the two characters too and I was rooting for them the whole way through!
I would absolutely recommend this book to others and I am really looking forward to reading more from Ms Mooney again in the future!

Me and Cinderella by Kelly Mooney is the second book in the Dirty Rooster series. This book can be read as a stand-alone although trust me when I say you also want to read book one.
This book was just as good as the first book. It was as amusing and entertaining. The characters were just as engaging. I really felt like I was invested in their story. They really worked well together. They were interesting and you could feel the connection between them.
This was a fantastic book and one I highly recommend.
