One of my inspirational romances, Princess is a new adultfiction work that explores prejudice and the ways we use or hide our talents. Heather and Anthony excel in their respectivefields--academics and basketball. ButHeather doesn't feel "seen or acknowledged" for her gifts and talents whileAnthony gets all the glory. However,when she begins to really get to know him, she realizes there is a lot more toAnthony than the scowling guy on the giant posters. In fact, maybe he's a lot more like her thanshe would ever have realized.
One of the things that draws me to writing romance is thatin the safe spaces where love grows, we can learn about ourselves. Sometimes what we see will be enlightening,sometimes frightening, and sometimes it will cause us to rethink all thosethings we've held as just-how-things-are.It's so easy to judge someone else when you don't know them. It's so easy to be jealous, angry, and pettyuntil you realize that they are flesh and blood with feelings and trials youknow nothing about.
This is one of those romances that, while being a great lovestory, is also a great lesson--in looking at how we treat others and why. I truly believe this is one of thoseinspirational books that while not being strictly "Christian" (i.e. no sermonsor church services) will leave us questioning if our fear is preventing us fromreally loving others as openly and honestly as we should be.
Anthony Russell is the star college basketball player, and Heather Nolan hates him for having it made for just being a jock. All the fierce posters of him all over campus just fuels her anger. Here she is about to have to quit school because of finances, and this muscle man has life easy on just his brawn. When her English professor offers her $200 dollars a week to tutor a guy, she jumps at the opportunity. When she find out it’s Anthony, she almost chokes. What she isn’t prepared for is how nice the guy is. However, campus life is difficult at best, and Heather has her stumbling blocks as she searches for her Prince Charming among all the toads.
I loved this story. Although it developed slowly, the characters are wonderful and the plot interesting because Anthony and Heather spend so much time together studying. However, it is more worldly than any I’ve ever read by Staci Stallings before. It is relatively clean, although it uses h*ll four times and b*tch twice. It also mentioned that Heather “thanked the traffic gods.” There was no mention of faith otherwise. The story was too good to rate anything less than a five, but I’m glad Staci’s recent novels have a more Christian slant.
Way better than I was expecting! And more real to life than expected too. What I really appreciated about the book is that the main characters have problems, some major, but they always talk things through. Guys, communication is a big deal, and people NEVER communicate in books. It drives me crazy! But they actually did it here.
Here you get a lesson in not pre-judging people. There are lots of neat little subtle things that tie the story together. There's a small satisfying touch of mystery...how was she going to catch the criminal? It was inspiring in that if you need to study, here's a great method and pep talk.
I love Cinderella stories and this had the flavor of that fairytale. You know it's going to work out but you probably won't guess how. This is one of my favorite authors and she has a great story here. I'm anxious to start another Staci Stallings book now!
The plot is very slow to develop, but the story itself is compelling enough. However, the description is deceiving. There is nothing Christian, spiritual, or religious about the book, including the profanity.
