Her relationship with her aunt is wonderful and in her she found the mother she didn't have. The relationship she has with her stepmother is the exact opposite and I would have enjoyed her being ruined if not for Aurora's sister.
Lucas has recently inherited his title and is working towards securing his family's future. For a large portion of the book, he's courting an heiress with the hope of marrying her to pay off his family's debts. Lucas is willing to set aside his own happiness for the sake of the family and marry someone despite being in love with someone else.
I understand where Lucas was coming from here and it was an admirable decision, but it did prove frustrating at times. Aurora and Lucas team up pretty early on to locate the blackmailer as it's apparent nearly from the start that it isn't Lucas at all. The two have some great scenes while searching for the blackmailer and they both let their guard down during these scenes which was great.
I liked how much fun they had together and the banter was excellent. There are a number of misunderstandings that occur which could have been fixed sooner if these two would have just sat down and talked. The book is pretty light on the sexier scenes which I was not expecting. I like my romances more on the steamier side, so that is my only complaint about the romance. The Scandalous Flirt ended up being a really fun read and the mystery aspect was well done and kept my interest.

Although Whoopi's portion of it consists of mostly squeaking.
Played straight between Prince Christopher and Cinderella at the ball, but averted earlier when they just become fast friends based on their mutual "I Just Want to be Free" attitudes.
Cinderella first meets the Prince when he, as a "charming stranger", helps her pick up her bags after a royal coachman runs over them. Later, during the who-fits-the-slipper part of the movie, Cinderella again falls victim to a royal coachman. They say the same lines every time, and as they recite them the second time, both of them are realizing exactly who the other is.

After the stepmother tries on the shoe and it fits, she can't stop squealing. Until the shoe cuts her circulation off.
A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song
The stepmother appears to feel this way with regards to her daughters. Well, Bernadette Peters had to sing something. The song, "Falling in Love with Love," is more of a statement of her opinion, and it's not done in a villainous manner. The version contains examples of: Gabrielle, the older stepsister, is actually very pretty once she gets rid of her ridiculous puffy dress and Bavarian-pretzel hairstyle, and has a suitor in Jean-Michel. Gabrielle is also considered attractive enough for Sebastian and Madame to believe she has a real shot with Prince Topher and hooking the two of them up is the main impetus for their scheme.
Unfortunately, they have No Sparks. Topher also has his moments. Dating What Daddy Hates: Madame the stepmother does not approve of Jean-Michel, because he's poorer than they are and a social activist, and she has social-climbing aspirations.

Ella earned it by being kind and friendly to "Crazy Marie" aka the Godmother in disguise. Similarly, she doesn't just go to the ball and the banquet to win over the Prince but as an opportunity to inform Topher about the injustices in the kingdom.
Ella prettily readily forgives Madame and Charlotte, however, this makes sense since being kind is the moral of the story. Sebastian to Prince Topher. He was supposed to make sure Topher was ready to be a good, strong king, but instead he keeps him almost completely in the dark and is running the kingdom in his name.
Gabrielle is similar to Anastasia Tremaine as they are both the nice stepsisters of their respective families and they fall in love with lower-class men. This was Madame, and she believes her daughters should follow her example. I married your father for love—he died, I cried. I married Cinderella's father for money—he died, I got a house.
When the Prince finally starts to assert his power and becomes less dependent on Sebastian, some productions show Sebastian warmly welcoming Jean-Michel into his position.
Ella is Friend to All Living Things and has two sidekicks a fox and a raccoon. Subverted in that they briefly become human to be her footmen for the ball.
The whole step-family gets one when they perform "A Lovely Night" with Ella. Only Gabrielle stays nice afterwards though. Topher starts out as a Puppet Prince—he just signs off on whatever Sebastian asks him to without reading it.
At one point, he even hands over his ring of state so Sebastian can get things done more efficiently. The plot is also very similar to the film version of Ella Enchantedwith the Prince being an orphan Puppet King who is unaware that his Evil Chancellor is stealing lands and rights from the people until Ella opens his eyes to the situation. Took a Level in Kindness: On a meta-level, this happens with Gabrielle, who's not wicked in any sense of the word—rather, she's too shy to stand up to her mother and older sister's bullying.

She allows herself to imagine a different life for herself and dream of a situation where she is not confined to a corner in order to taste her freedom.
The handsome prince in the end is just an added perk. But she and Prince Christopher do not fall instantly in love like other fairytale couples we have come to know. He wants the freedom to fall in love with the right person. It is this commonality and desire for happiness that brings them together.
