REVIEW : Redeeming the Stepbrother (Tales from St. Giles #2) by Andrew Grey
A Tale from St. Giles
Family can be a blessing and a curse, but for artist Florian, it’s a nightmare he longs to escape.
As chief designer for Bartholomew Artist Porcelain, Florian specializes in painting birds. He also watches them in the wild to distract himself from his short-tempered mother, at least temporarily. Florian’s heart is too soft to leave his stepsister, Ella, to suffer alone. Still, he can’t help dreaming about one day finding happiness and love.
When Count Dieter von Hollenbach arrives in town to visit a friend and present an award, he isn’t looking for romance. Then again, he doesn’t expect someone as perfect as Florian to come into his life. To make sure Florian is all he seems and that their connection is genuine, Dieter keeps his title to himself.
But he isn’t the only one with a secret.
At a masquerade ball to celebrate the award, some of the masks fall away, but those that remain in place could destroy the love beginning to grow between them.

Redeeming the Stepbrother by Andrew Grey
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A modern re-telling of Cinderella. Only Ella didn't get her prince now, but the stepbrother.LOL.
I liked the first book about Beau and Dante. This one is still set on Dante and Dante's world. Remember Florian, the artist who had a crush on Dante? Now he can finally have his own Dante in Dieter.
I liked the idea of giving a stepbrother a chance. But I didn't really see any strong chemistry between Florian and Dieter. I liked how he and his stepsister, Ella having a good relationship.
It's a low in angst, sweet, and has a perfect ending. Ella didn't get her prince, but Florian instead.
A good plot.
This is not my favorite of the series, but this was okay, and sweet. I loved Beau more though :)
