At The Stroke Of Midnight by Tara Sivec Review

4 Smooches


Meet the Naughty Princess Club: a brand new series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that introduces readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that ensue when three women start a new business to make it rain.

Once upon a time Cynthia was the perfect housewife. Between being the President of the PTA and keeping her home spotless without a hair (or her pearls) out of place, her life was a dream come true. Her husband was once her knight in shining armor, but now he’s run off with all their money…and the babysitter.

Dressed as a princess at the annual Halloween block party on Fairytale Lane, she meets two other “princesses” also facing money troubles: antique store owner Ariel and librarian Isabelle. When the women are invited to wear their costumes to a party where they’re mistaken for strippers, Cindy, Ariel, and Belle realize that a career change could be the best way to make their money problems go bippity-boppity-boo.

But can structured Cindy approach a stripper pole without sanitizing wipes? And could the blue-eyed anti-prince that has been crossing her path become Cindy’s happily ever after? At the Stroke of Midnightis a hilarious, empowering story where princesses can save themselves while slaying in stilettos.


Only Tara Sivec can take Disney princesses and turn them into strippers and somehow still feel like it is a fun and progressive book.

At The Stroke of Midnight was equally romantic and hilarious, not to mention sexy.  Cindy is out of a bad relationship and her daughter is pulling away. Having been left to fend for herself with no money left to pay the mortgage or buy food with she, along with Ariel and Belle, decide to start a stripping business. I wasn’t sure if this one would be for me but she won me over. It was at times silly and over the top but it was a fun escape from reality and I cannot wait for Belle and Ariel’s books!
