Cocktail waitress Khara Thomas never expected to trade the dazzling lights of Vegas for European aristocracy but as maid of honour in the royal wedding of the decade she’s forced into an unexpected spotlight when her best friend marries a prince. 

Luckily for Khara, gorgeous but infuriating best man Adam Hatton is happy to show her the ropes. Khara knows Adam’s entitled rich guy type but as their connection grows she realises there’s more to this playboy than meets the eye. And when she learns his royal secret? She might just find that fairytales do come true…

The Bottom Line:  Yet another book where I find myself well and truly on the fence.  The long and the short of it is this: I liked to idea of this story and I very much enjoyed the richly described and beautiful settings, but I had a hard time liking either Khara or Adam.  Khara comes off as cynical and very chip-on-her-shoulder with a bad attitude about all men while Adam comes off as somewhat selfish and self-absorbed.  It’s hard to truly enjoy a book when you don’t like the main characters.  The saving grace, at least as far as characters go are the secondary characters.  I liked nearly every one of the secondary characters, their attitudes, their liveliness, their involvement, and their encouragement of both Khara and Adam.  Finally, I would caution all potential readers to know, from the beginning, this book is going to end exactly as you think it will.  The ending is predictable, but if you’re OK with knowing the outcome from the first page and you’re a fan of surly main characters, I encourage you to give it a try.  I warned you though 😊
