My Rating: 4 stars
Elena Murphy is doing just fine—if you don’t count her struggling art studio, her ex-boyfriend suing her, and accidentally tossing purple paint onto a man who just happened to be in the wrong place at the very worst time. And not just any man, but freaking royalty. The World’s Most Eligible Bachelor, to be exact, with the paparazzi catching the whole embarrassing incident on camera.
Could her life be any more of a dumpster fire?
Yes it could. Now she’s getting dragged online and her clients are disappearing faster than free drinks at happy hour. And just when she thinks things can’t possibly get worse…His Royal Hotness decides the best way to fix this mess is to make her the envy of New York—by pretending to date.
Because what’s worse than a prince treating her like his very own Cinderella, including dreamy nights at the theater and a nearly X-rated pottery date?
Reminding herself it’s all fake.
This was a predictable but entertaining read. I loved Lena as a character. I love clumsy people as characters and the embarrassing but highly entertaining situations they find them in. There is something so relatable about Lena, she is witty and loyal, someone you just can’t help but like.
I will be keeping a lookout for more books by this author as this book was a perfect, light read that was highly enjoyable.
