Charming (A Cinderella Billionaire Story #1) by Sophie Brooks

Charming was, indeed, charming. I love fairytale retellings and unique meet-cutes? Even better.
The Gist: Ford and Autumn? The meet when he calls into the fantasy hotline--where Autumn works--looking to get his rocks off. Okay, well, maybe just to talk. Really. That's all he wants. Not the "naughty nurse" or the "sexy submissive" just Autumn. So he calls. And they talk. Often. Until one night an emergency brings their relationship off the phones and into real life.
Ford and Autumn were fun. Ford is a super confident, sexy, dominant billionaire with some hidden secrets and a generous kind heart. And Autumn is a struggling young woman doing whatever she has to to provide for her younger sister. They're both hard working, earnest, and easy to like even if they aren't always perfect.

The romance was something A little awkward at first because hello phone sex line! I mean. Is he a perv? Is he legit? Ack! But they had such great chemistry and I enjoyed them as they got to know each other in real life-- complete with blunders, sweet moments and super steamy foreplay.

All in all, a good time was had. Fun characters, a unique first meet, some struggles and missteps and pulling everything back together. I would have loved to spend more even more time with these two.

Ford’s gone from hard-partying playboy to responsible CEO. Since he inherited his father’s billion-dollar corporation, he has everything to prove. He also has a secret. Her name is Autumn, and her voice is perfect. Sometimes sweet and innocent, sometimes sultry and seductive, but always exactly right. Ford can’t help wanting a real relationship with the woman on the other end of the phone. He just has to make sure she never learns how much he really knows about her… and why.

Autumn’s job at the fantasy hotlines helps pay the bills—and with a younger sister to raise, she has a lot of bills. The shy 23-year-old is good at role-playing. She’s an innocent girl next door for one caller, a naughty nurse for the next… anyone but herself. Except with Ford. He’s the one man who never asks for fake moans or empty flirtations. He wants the girl behind the fantasy… the real Autumn. And she can’t help wishing he were more than a voice in the night.

When Autumn’s in danger and Ford rushes to her rescue, their unlikely connection becomes a Cinderella story. But Autumn has a secret of her own… one that could tear apart their fairy-tale romance.
