One kind deed can change your life forever…
Brynn Tomlin could never afford to follow her heart. But when she sees a stranger shivering in the snow outside of the college library, an inexplicable urge leads her to buy him a hot cup of coffee. It’s just a small act of kindness, a few words of conversation. Brynn should be focusing on her finals, after all, not on the man who looked up at her gratefully with piercing blue eyes.
He could have been anyone – a janitor on break, a graduate student, a bum. But the man standing outside in the cold turns out to be Dr. Eliot Herceg, one of the most brilliant minds in mathematics and heir to a fortune. After years of reclusive isolation, he now finds his heart awakening to the kind girl whose name he does not know.
Brynn has spent her life trying to forget her desires, and Eliot’s deep wounds have taken nearly a decade to heal. After so much hurt, will either of them be able to open their hearts again?
When I started this book I had the song in my head that the little mice sing to Cinderella in the Disney movie…you know the one…cinderelly cinderelly, night and day it’s cinderelly… those mice are much cuter than real mice.
But back to the book…My impression after reading it is that it was alright. I like the story of Cinderella, so it wasn’t far fetched that i’d like this adaptation. I liked most of the changes. Eliot is originally from Hungary, but is in America researching at a university. He is dark, handsome and keeps to himself. Brynn is a student studying upper level mathematics. She lives with her grandmother and they are extremely poor. She does have (I bet you guessed!) a father, stepmother and two (albeit evil) stepsisters…but they aren’t nice to her. Her mother passed away when she was younger and is buried in Hungary. So when Eliot holds a mathematics competition for an internship that will take place in Hungary, she knows she must win. Well, she does! or else the story would’ve ended!
The whole of the story is pretty ho-hum. It was a quick read, and the whole time I hoping for that elusive spark that takes a book from being good to great. Also, I didn’t mind all the math that everyone is complaining about on goodreads…I guess my mind is just used to turning off when it comes to math anyway, so I just skimmed those parts!!
**I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review!
