Not your typical Cinderella story…
If she thought college applications were complicated, just wait until she catches feelings for the newest celebrity in town.
Ashley Adams doesn’t have time for haters. Already too busy dealing with dead bodies after her stepmother purchased a mortuary, she is ready to put the lid on her judgmental peers and finally bury her high school experience. But her focus is shattered when a charming pop-star-turned-student needs her help evading his crazed fans.
The last place heartthrob Harry James wants to be is back in school. Sentenced to finish his senior year after a case of accidental arson, the singer longs to return to the stage. But he never expected to meet a girl who could see through the fame to the real person inside.
Surprised by the chemistry between them, Ashley is shocked when Harry gives her the cold shoulder. But with his publicist forbidding him from dating her, Harry must choose between fame or love.
Can Ashley and Harry survive the turmoil threatening to tear them apart?
Ashes is a fun and snarky standalone YA romance. If you like captivating characters, emotional twists and turns, Fairies and Cinderella retellings, then you’ll adore MK Harkins’ fast-paced tale.
*Recommended for readers 13+ (Some mild swearing and off-page violence)
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “I’m no stranger to retellings of fairytales so my expectations were high. The story is beautifully written with a fresh and modern take on the characters, whilst retaining the true essence of the story.” Goodreads Reviewer
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “A delightful mix of finding love in the modern world, with a bit of Fairytale magic mixed in. I thought the novel was beautifully written. There really weren’t any plot holes that led to confusion. The elements of a Cinderella retelling were masterfully placed, but not necessarily made the center of the story.” Goodreads Reviewer
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “What a great read! Everything about this book made me want to keep reading! From the great characters, great story line and a Cinderella twist!” NetGalley Reviewer
