A princess who has lost her faith in love . . .
Lucy Linden’s prince charming (a.k.a. her fiancé) disappeared three months before the Big Day. Determined to pick up the pieces, she dives into the world of online dating. But the only men interested in a woman whose day job involves playing Cinderella leave Lucy looking for an exit strategy before the main course. And the man rushing to her rescue isn’t the solution to her problems. Jared is a walking, talking fantasy—if Lucy’s daydreams began and ended in the bedroom. No one would ever mistake South Florida’s bored billionaire bachelor for a long-term prince.
A man willing to risk everything to prove he’s her prince . . .
Jared Mitchell pushes the limits, in the boardroom and in bed. When his best friend and business partner’s little sister sends up red distress flares, he’s thrust into the role of pseudo-big brother. He’s never had a thing for Cinderella. But now he’s fighting his desire to make the princess his—even if he has to risk his empire to deliver her happy-ever-after ending.
She pulled her hand free from his and crossed her arms in front of her chest. She wore the white lace shirt like body armor. “And if I tell Finn you spent your lunch hour interrupting my date?”
“Your date was over.” He stepped closer and inhaled her sweet vanilla scent. “What you tell your brother, that’s up to you.”
“So you didn’t drive over here on some misguided rescue mission?”
He raised his hand to her cheek and brushed his fingers over her skin. “I came here to kiss you.”
BLP REVIEW ~ Tracy
This is the second book by Sara Jane Stone that I’ve read, and like the first ~ To Tempt A SEAL ~ I really enjoyed this story too.
I liked Lucy and Jared, the MCs, but I initially had a little trouble getting fully into their ‘relationship’ – that changed the more I read. I loved that Lucy was determined to hold out for The Cinderella Fantasy
Following a string of spectacular dating disasters, Lucy knows better than to go and have a thing for her brothers friend while at the same time Jared notices actually notices her as more than the ‘little sister’ and starts to want more… even though his view of relationships and HEAs differs greatly from hers!
There was fun and laughs, awful dates, friendship, romance and attraction that all added up to a good read and I’m looking forward to the other books in the series – and wondering if I’ve pegged 2 future MCs correctly!!
3.9* for a good read that I’ll most probably read again in the future!
Sara Jane Stone lives near New York’s Hudson River with her very supportive real-life hero, two lively young children, a lazy Burmese cat, and a very active dog. When she is not finger painting with the kids, she loves writing sexy stories, staying up past her bedtime reading red-hot romance, and chatting with her readers on Facebook.
