Small-town girl, Katie O’Connor has always dreamed of seeing her name in lights. Check the box for fame, a movie deal, the perfect leading role that comes with a gorgeous leading man! Katie moved to Hollywood, elbows her way into auditions, lives on a shoestring budget—whatever is required to land a deal, she throws her heart into… until she’s involved in a royal kidnapping.
As the future king, Prince Alexander refuses to rule from an ivory tower. Duty-bound, he intends to relate to his future subjects, regardless of their walk of life. Before his coronation, he needs a foolproof plan to outrun his security team and go temporarily AWOL. While visiting L.A., all it takes is a sound stage collision and Alex is blindsided by a headstrong woman who is simply irresistible. So much so, he calls in a favor in order to secure her help … as his pretend girlfriend.
Their worlds are oceans apart, but their immediate attraction is impossible to put aside, especially their nonstop banter. Miffed at being wrangled into a situation that might blow up in her face, Katie comes up with her own plan. If The Prince is serious about walking the walk of the common folk, she’s only too happy to oblige as his pretend girlfriend. Through an ice storm, a road trip, kitchen duty, and a Texas pig race, Alex captures the hearts of the locals as well as Ms. O’Connor’s.
What starts out as a deal Katie can’t refuse becomes the acting role of a lifetime… letting Prince Alexander go without a fight.
A delightfully funny retelling of The Prince and The Pauper that romance readers of all ages will enjoy. On a two-week 1,500-mile road trip, Katie and Alex discover the end of the road might just be the beginning of their ‘Happy Ever After’ together.
Katie is small town girl with big dreams. She moved to Hollywood to become an actress, but so far it's not going so well. She has little money and trouble getting better roles. Her life changes dramatically when she becomes part of the Prince's plan, by accident.
The Prince is determined to experience life, away from lime light. He wants be closer to the people he is suppose to rule and can't do that under public and royal scrutiny. So he decides to make a plan, to disappear for few days.
Katie agrees to help him, but help turn to friendship and friendship turn to something more. I liked her personalty, she is though and very funny and he is very, very charming. It's one of those timeless stories, I love to read.
I especially liked first part of the book, it gets a bit slow in the middle and pick the pace back up towards the end. It's one of those stories that would an amazing movie. :)
