Meet the Naughty Princess Club: a brand new series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that introduces readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that ensue when three women start a new business to make it rain.

Once upon a time Cynthia was the perfect housewife. Between being the President of the PTA and keeping her home spotless without a hair (or her pearls) out of place, her life was a dream come true. Her husband was once her knight in shining armor, but now he’s run off with all their money…and the babysitter.

Dressed as a princess at the annual Halloween block party on Fairytale Lane, she meets two other “princesses” also facing money troubles: antique store owner Ariel and librarian Isabelle. When the women are invited to wear their costumes to a party where they’re mistaken for strippers, Cindy, Ariel, and Belle realize that a career change could be the best way to make their money problems go bippity-boppity-boo.

But can structured Cindy approach a stripper pole without sanitizing wipes? And could the blue-eyed anti-prince that has been crossing her path become Cindy’s happily ever after? At the Stroke of Midnight is a hilarious, empowering story where princesses can save themselves while slaying in stilettos.

I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Novel Thoughts

At the Stroke of Midnight had me smiling and not wanting to put the book down all day. In fact… I didn’t put it down. I drove my son to the park and I proceeded to read all day long. It’s UNPUTDOWNABLE! It was Tara Sivec’s personal brand of humor that has you actually laughing out loud.

I loved watching Cindy’s transformation from who she thought she should be into finding out who she really is. She turns from Stepford wife to stripper and I loved seeing her feel empowered and confident in her own skin and for the brilliant business she is not matter what her ex husband and neighbors think of her.

In At the Stroke of Midnight we meet Cindy’s two new best friends Ariel and Isabella. Yes, this series is a contemporary take on some of our favorite fairy tales, but when they are written by Tara they are the perfect blend of pervy humor and swoony heroes that only she can deliver.

PJ Charming our hero is also the owner of a strip club and he is my favorite kind of hero… kind of a jerk, kind of charming 😉 and utterly handsome and he will warm you up from the inside out with the way he treats Cindy! He is perfect for her!

I can’t wait to get my hands on In Bed with the Beast!
