And—a Happily-Ever-After Ending (Just not the way you expected it!)
Lucy Trabbicio’s a down-on-her-luck, young, American, former biker-bar cocktail waitress desperate to find a job. Lady Elizabeth Billingsley hires Lucy to travel to Fredonia, the tiny jewel of a country in the Alps, for ten days ‘tops’ to impersonate her.
Say what? How the heck is that going to happen?
In the mother of all makeovers, Elizabeth’s people teach Lucy how to dress, walk, talk, eat, be coiffed and even get naked like a European Lady.
To keep Crown Prince Cristoph Timmel interested in Elizabeth until she finishes her unexpected, pressing personal business in the States.
But fate intervenes… Lucy meets and is wildly attracted to sexy, bad-boy Nick on the oh-so-long flights to Fredonia. Unfortunately for Lucy—Nick and Elizabeth have a hot sexual history, which Nick wants to immediately resume.
Prince Cristoph proposes marriage. What’s an imposter girl to do? Elizabeth insists that she’ll make it back home in time for the wedding. Lucy accepts Cristoph’s proposal and is on the fast track to becoming a Princess but continues to fall for the wrong Prince of Fredonia—Nick. When another tiny glitch arises—someone’s trying to kill her.
The only folks helping Lucy are her wild, party hard, take-no-prisoners Ladies-in-Waiting.
When the real Lady Elizabeth decides she’s not marrying Cristoph and never returning to Fredonia, Lucy’s faced with an uncomfortable decision—continue her deception, marry the prince she’s not in love with and live a dream life albeit without Nick, her dream guy? Or tell the truth and return to poverty and oblivion?
A modern day, sexy tale with romance, twists and turns, LOL moments, a few tears and an empowering ending.
I received a free copy of this book via netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
This book took me a lot to get into. I didn’t feel like the wit started until half way into the book and by that point I was bored. It wasn’t a bad story I just felt like there were major plot holes and very drab scenarios.
The major plot hole that annoyed me the most was that no-one noticed it wasn’t Lizzie, so no-on noticed her change in voice, accent and mannerisms, not even her father and her closest friends. Seems very unrealistic to me. It made me annoyed every-time one of those characters came up. The only person that seemed to notice anything was Nick and she pushed him away.
I have to be honest after half way through I skimmed the rest, my interest was not being held.
There were some great plot twists and some brilliant characters, but I just wanted more. The first half was just not exciting enough, it was pretty bland and very monotone.
3 out of 5 stars
