How (Not) To Date A Prince – Zoe May / #Review #BlogTour @rararesources @zoe_writes


Surely fairy tales don’t happen in real life?

After being jilted at the altar, high-flying journalist Sam doesn’t believe in love any more – and she certainly doesn’t believe in fairy tales! So, when she’s asked to cover the Royal Wedding, it’s the last thing she wants to do.

And when she crashes into a ridiculously handsome stranger, Anders, things go from bad to worse. But as the big day draws closer, Sam finds herself being swept up in the excitement – as well as swept off her feet by Anders!

But there’s something that Anders is hiding from her – and when he finally reveals his secret, might Sam just have the happy-ever-after she never thought she wanted…?



My review

I have to admit it. I am a big sucker for weddings and the whole entourage. I am not particulary a fan of royals, but a royal wedding is something I like to watch on tv. Do I need to say more when I saw this book was about a royal wedding?? No, I did not think so. 😉

I think a lot of (little) girls dream about a fairy tale wedding and why not. When you meet the right person, he IS your prince even if he does not wear a crown and he will make you feel like a real princess.

This is a lovely story about not believing in love anymore, but being shot by one of Cupid’s arrows and falling head over heels. Whilst writing this book, the author also opened boxes marked ‘humour’ and ‘Cinderella’ and added a royal (pun intended 🙂 ) sprinkling of both.

If you like all these things in a book, you will thoroughly enjoy it, just like I did.

Was it predictable? Yes, but who cares when the story is fun? I most certainly don’t. 5 stars.

Thank you, Zoe May and Rachel’s Random Resouces.
