I was really weary before buying this book, partly due to the title of the book and partly, because of the story line. Because really, the story line, if written poorly, could go into flames really easily. Despite this, How to Resist Prince Charming was a surprisingly refreshing tale of two people falling in love.
Written in third person, which is often really rare for a romance novel, you see the book through both characters- Lenna and Braxton. Admittedly, the opening chapter was a little blaze as you're introduced to Lenna, who seems to be and freely admits, that she's a daddy's girl. My first thought was that she's going to be this boring character with almost no personality and a unhealthy amount of devotion to her father. However, Kage quickly dismissed this when Lenna would often surprises me with a strength that was great to see in a female role. Braxton, was not your typical surly, aggressive person. No, straight of the bat he is kind and actually funny which is again, another refreshing aspect of the story- it didn't start out with the man being mean and the girl falling for me.
The one thing that did bug me however, was the 'love at first sight' premise. It could be just because i don't believe in such a thing, therefore don't understand how that happens. But somehow, Kage still managed to win me over with her descriptive writing and make me think that sometimes, there is just an initial connection one can't seem to resist.
With few grammatical and syntax errors, this book was just a really lovely tale of two characters falling in love, albeit a little hastily, with a few obstacles in their way.
There's some great dialogue and really steamy sex scenes so if you want to break the slump of reading some really really bad romance stories, How to Resist Prince Charming might be it.
He's the ultimate temptation. He's hot, he's sweet, he's smart - a lethal combination for a young man who's currently in charge of his father's company. Everyone doesn't want him there - so he's working his ass off. Trying to prove that even in his age he could make things happened. One of these people who doesn't want him on the top of the corporate ladder was Tom Davenport. His character is my favorite. I loved how his character developed throughout the book. It seems that I have seen him grow up and mature through the pages: from a not-so-confident-frustrated rookie boss to a man oozing with authority and power. His decisions, although laced with emotions were still wise and just - and I have loved him for it :)
Lenna Davenport is very close to her family, most especially to her father. When she accompany him to a party - she finally laid her eyes on the 'boss' that her father was talking about. He was her prince charming, and her father's wicked witch of the west. She tried to stop what she feels - but the chemistry was too explosive to ignore. So she jumped into temptation, gave what they had a chance. Theirs was a forbidden romance - but how long can they possibly keep it from every one, most especially from Tom?
The characters, the plot, the scenes - they were just perfect. I had a grand time reading the dialogues and falling in love with the both of them. How to Resist a Prince Charming doesn't only deals about secret affairs, its about family, trust and deceit. Like me, I'm pretty sure you can't put it down.
Linda Kage - you totally, totally rocked! Second to Price of A Kiss - this is my next favorite book. :)

I am not a fan of daddy's girls, but that is a personal thing. Lenna managed to surprise me. Even though she is devoted to her dad, she sees him as a fallible human being and I love that!
Braxton managed to surprise me. I was expecting a surly playboy millionaire and what I got was a funny, sexy man that made me laugh!
There are so many people that judge without any knowledge and that is what Lenna's dad and his good ol' boy club did when Braxton took over. They didn't give him a chance to show or prove himself and that shows that their characters are seriously lacking.
This was a fun sweet story that had a little bit of tang in it!
