Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Olivia and Nicholas's story. Olivia is struggling to keep her Dad's restaurant open and take care of her family, and she is not all that thrilled to be propositioned by a hot guy one night. Nicholas has been given an order by his grandmother the queen that he has 6 months before he needs to make an engagement announcement to help unite his country. He is in the US trying to get his brother back home, and he is instantly attracted and intruiged by Olivia when he meets her. He starts pursuing her, and she gives in for a summer fling. There is some family and royalty drama, some sexy times, and some funny moments...but they do get a HFN ending.
POV: This alternated between Olivia and Nicholas's POV.
Overall Pace of Story: Ok. I did have a few issues with some of the time jumps and the abrupt ending (see closure section). I never skimmed and I thought it flowed well otherwise.
Instalove: No, they take a while to develop stronger feelings. Instalust? Yes.
H rating: 3.5 stars. Nicholas. I liked him until he pushed the h away. He did make up for it in the end.
h rating: 4 stars. Olivia. I liked her. She was sweet, loyal, and sassy. I liked how she treated the H like she would anyone else, and called him out when needed.
Sadness level: Low. No tissues needed.
Heat level: Moderate. They have some hot chemistry and scenes, but not so much it takes away from the storyline.
Descriptive sex: Yes
OW/OM drama: Yes
Sex scene with OW or OM: No
Closure: This had another ending with the conflict being resolved and then went straight into the epilogue -- I want some time in between! I also had a lot of unanswered questions, and the way the ending was presented it was just too abrupt for my liking. I would call it a HFN because of my unanswered questions, but others might call it a HEA.
How I got it: I paid the $4.99 on Amazon for it.
Oliva is holding her family together with a very thin thread. She was required to leave college to come home and help her family’s small business. Within the city of New York, Olivia was born and raised by her loving parents, but when he mother passes away from Cancer, her father falls apart. This leave Olivia as the responsible adult taking care of the bakery & café as well as her younger sister.
Nick is in NYC doing some charity work on behalf of the royal family, and waiting out his brother. He stumbles into a little café with his best friend. While there he flirts – crudely – with the beautiful waitress. Olivia has no idea who this jerk with the ego the size of long island is, but he can take his “tea and pie” to go.
Nick is intrigued by Olivia and the fact that she doesn’t recognize him right away. To him it is — refreshing. He is determined to win her over and conquer her body, but he wasn’t expecting to have his heart conquered by her.
I really loved Olivia. If I ever meet her, we would totally be friends. She is a real, rock solid person who doesn’t let people walk all over her. She is selfless and sacrifice a great deal for her family. She wants to be able to have this one time summer fling with a prince, but she is scared that her heart will break by the end of it. Which I think most summer flings have the ability to do.
Nick and Olivia have many up and downs in this romantic fairy tale story. Prince falling madly in love with a common girl. She is then thrown to the wolves when having to navigate her way through the politics of royalty. The story is told from the POV of both characters, so you get to see things from many angles.
I love the ending. I thought this would be a series, following these two characters, but there story is a complete standalone. The next book is about the younger prince. This story is about sacrifice, facing your fears, courage, and forgiveness.
Should you read it? It will get your juices flowing, that is for sure.
