This is a series from Decadent Publishing. All the heroines (or heroes) in this series either have friends who send them to, or hear about, Madame Evangeline’s high-end dating service 1 Night Stand. The entire series is written by different authors.

Wow! All right. This story begins with Genevieve getting ready to leave her retirement home. She’s clutching a photo she took of a bride and groom since it represents one of the biggest mistakes she ever made. Genny finally contacted Madame Eve to see if she and her service could help Genny get her one do-over. Madame Eve agreed to help but didn’t make any promises. Yes, in case you missed it in the genre label, this is a time travel 1Night Stand story and Genny goes back fifty years to correct her mistake and be with the only man she loves. Nice. She travels back to the day the photo she had been clutching was taken. She’s a photographer and was contracted by her ex-boyfriend to take his wedding photos. She handled it much nicer than I would have, but then, I am not a photographer.

Genevieve is there to take wedding photos, and she does, but she seems to be a bit on edge. She knows Ray, the groom, isn’t the man for her but every time the best man, Matt, speaks to her she gets a zing through her body. She keeps getting distracted by Matt yet is determined to do her job and take pictures of the wedding and reception. And you know, that reception totally rocked with all the eighties hits! There was dancing, a conga line and even Matt had to ask Genny to dance. She of course said no since she’s on the clock but she had too many fuzzy memories coming to her and so she puts the camera down and dances with him.

You know, I have read other 1Night Stand stories by Ms. Masters and yes, I liked them a lot. This one moved me very much and it wasn’t just all the songs from bands I grew up listening to either. Yes the title is Cinderella Dreams and there was a Cinderella aspect. But truly, the best part about this story is Genny getting a do-over. Who doesn’t want one of those? Matt and Genevieve have some smexy time, but she almost blows it all. I am leaving it up to you to read her tale since I don’t want to blow it for you, but this story is worth the read! Madame Eve and her 1Night Stand series almost always make me happy and this story left me just grinning like a loon.
