Synopsis from Goodreads:

Amelia Radley thought she had it all when she met a man in a bar and he ended up being royalty. Their love affair was anything but boring, and yet he dumped her almost exactly a year after asking her out to their first dinner date. While the wound was deep and fresh thirty days after their separation, she picked up the morning paper only to see that the man she thought she loved had already become engaged to another woman.

Her best friend, Tina, suggests the only thing she knows would make her feel better. Amelia should start dating any man she meets that she likes so that she can get over her ex. The idea is ludicrous, and yet Amelia agrees to a date with a man she has never met before. All the while, she considers herself nothing more than the prince’s ex, a woman who could not hold the affections of every woman’s dream.

When she finds love in an unexpected place, it’s challenged by the past and the future looks rocky. Amelia’s insecurities might get in the way of her finding true love, in more ways than one.

My Review:

This was a well written and put together novel. Seiters takes the concept of prince charming and runs with it. She brings the dating world to light in a rather vivid manner that allows readers to really feel what the characters are experiencing. She develops both her scenery and storyline in a gradual manner that allows you to feel out the story as a whole.

The main characters in this novel are quite intricately developed. It was refreshing to get to know the ins and outs that make them tick. Although quite intriguing, I found the female lead in this story to be rather self-absorbed. It made it rather difficult to identify with her at times. The rest of the cast was equally intriguing, everyone adding something to the story rather than simply being an extra name on paper to make the cast seem larger.

As a whole this was an enjoyable read. It was a good story, but for me was just missing that extra spark that would shoot it up into the 4 & 5 star realm.
