How (Not) To Date A Prince
Surely fairy tales don’t happen in real life?
After being jilted at the altar, high-flying journalist Sam doesn’t believe in love any more – and she certainly doesn’t believe in fairy tales! So, when she’s asked to cover the Royal Wedding, it’s the last thing she wants to do.
And when she crashes into a ridiculously handsome stranger, Anders, things go from bad to worse. But as the big day draws closer, Sam finds herself being swept up in the excitement – as well as swept off her feet by Anders!
But there’s something that Anders is hiding from her – and when he finally reveals his secret, might Sam just have the happy-ever-after she never thought she wanted…?
This is a hilarious romcom that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Sam is a politics journalist who has struggled after being jilted at the author. The last thing she wants is to be covering the story of the Royal Wedding, especially as she no longer believes in love or fairy tales. As she endeavours to put aside her personal feelings, she has so many things to investigate in preparation for the big day – who knew there was so much to learn about flower arranging, or so many different cake options, for example? As Sam struggles to complete some of the tasks, the handsome Anders keeps coming to her rescue. Just who is he? Can she really let him sweep her off her feet? What’s his secret?
This is such a funny story, I giggled my way through it. You really won’t anticipate some of the situations Sam gets herself into! It is a light-hearted, somewhat irreverent look at the journalists who cover the pomp and ceremony of a Royal Wedding and a modern day, fairy tale, royal romance. If you’re looking for a right royal fun read that’ll put a smile on your face grab yourself a copy!
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
