Blurb
Cleopatra Paige hates one thing in this world — just one — and his
name is Zachariah Prince.
In grade school, he pulled at her pigtails. In middle school, he spread
false rumors about her. And in high school, he ruined her prom.
She hates that his smirks are unfairly sexy. And she definitely loathes
that his dark eyes seem to follow her everywhere. Sometimes, even in her
dreams.
It doesn’t matter that he’s rich and popular or that he lives in a
freaking mansion full of butlers and maids. He’s rude and arrogant, and she
wants to stay as far away from him as possible.
But unfortunately for Cleo, she lives in the same freaking mansion as
Zach.
Only he’s the prince and she’s the lowly maid who serves him.

Sunny Shelly’s Review: 5 Stars

Confession: I almost gave up on Bad Boy Blues about five chapters in. Zach was SUCH an a-hole, and I was really wondering if I’d be able to see some redeeming quality about him that would make him a worthy hero, alpha a-hole or not. But I pushed through, and I am so glad that I did because this was a heartbreaking, heartwarming, gut-wrenching story that I would have missed out on.

This book has some darker themes — dyslexia, abuse, neglect, bullying, death — but Saffron A. Kent handles it all so delicately while still being wildly entertaining. When Blue flips the script and realizes that she’d been just as cruel to Zach (albeit unknowingly) as he’d been to her, that’s when this enemies-to-lovers romance really turned a corner for me. Things are not always as they appear, and while Zach may live in a ivory tower, it’s full of dark secrets and very lonely.

I love how Blue did not give up on wanting to be his friend, his support. He was so reluctant to take that support from her, considering their past history. But she pushes through his boundaries, breaks down his walls, and while it nearly destroys her, it also guts him and that was a wonderful turnabout. These two characters grow so much over the course of this book, and their journey is full of angst and hurt, and had me sobbing more than once, but it ends with a marvelous HEA. I am so glad I stuck with it!

She calls me a prince and herself, Cinderella. I agree. She’s my Cinderella. Except in our story, Cinderella saves the prince.

I received an advanced copy and voluntarily left a review.
