Book Description:
Dragged on a family trip to Europe, Becca wants nothing more than to go home. Trapped with her emotionally distant father, overeager stepmother, and a brother who only wants to hook up with European hotties, Becca is miserable. Until she meets Nikolai.

Nikolai has everything—he's a crown prince, heir to the throne, and girls adore him. But the one thing he doesn't have is freedom . . . so he flees his kingdom and goes on his own European trip.

And when Nikolai and Becca meet, sparks fly. But Becca's family vacation ends in a matter of days. Will Nikolai and Becca be forced to say good-bye, or will they change history forever?






I can always count on Angie to give me a really cute sweet read that cleanses the palate and puts a smile on your face.

I know when I pick up one of her books I am going to have fun with it. That it will be a easy delightful read that will more than likely leave me smiling and in a good mood when it is over.

This reminded me a little bit of the movie The Prince and Me. It had that same cuteness to it. That same awww, this is going to be a really cute love story that would never happen in a million years but still gets my heart beating and hopeful, kind of feel to it because what if? What if my prince really is out there and what if, he really ended up being a prince like Nikolai?

Yes these stories are predictable but sometimes that is just what we need, especially after a darker or harder read and that is why I read them and like them and hold on to them and will continue to buy them.

  3. I don't mind predictable reads from time to time, and I was a huge fan of Prince and Me so I think I'll check this book out too. :)

    EXACTLY ALI! What if? This sounds like just the book I'm looking for at the moment - light and cute and will leave me smiling. I don't care if it'll never happen in reality:)

    1. It was probably closer to 3.5 stars and could have easily been a 4 though Candace for some!

  10. I thought about this one but so far the reviews aren't great and I know that it is fluffy and fun but it needs to be a realistic, and this so isn't.

  12. Hmm. I will probably still read this, but it won't be high on my list. I've got too many other books to read that should be really good or that I have a deadline for. Thanks for the review!

    1. Yeah it isn't often you would meet and fall in love with a prince and he you. ;)

  16. A lot of people have reviewed this one, and the general consensus is they didn't like it, mainly due to the heroine's shallowness and pettiness. I'm glad to know someone else has actually enjoyed this! :D

  17. It looks like most of the readers didn't enjoy this book like they hoped they would. That is bad, because it sounded so sweet and I agree it does remind of The Prince and Me.
