Synopsis: Sophia Andreou has always been the “good daughter” who tried to keep her domineering father happy. She followed the rules and did everything that was asked of her. But this time, her father is asking too much. The family company is crumbling, and her father has arranged a marriage to a Greek billionaire who can save their property business. What?! Umm no thank you. If Cinderella can dress up to win a prince, surely Sophia can do the opposite and ditch hers…
Dion Kourakis has come a long way from being an orphan with only a single friend to his name. Now he runs a billion-dollar investment company and has the respect of everyone in Europe. His charming personality covers a lot of emotional scars, including his desire to make his mentor proud. Dion doesn’t exactly want a bride to go along with his next business deal, and he plans on letting the lass down gently when they meet…
Only, his future bride has turned out to be nothing like what he thought she’d be. She’s quirky and has a habit of turning up to social events in strange outfits. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what she’s up to, but the harder she tries to convince him she’d be an awful wife, the more he wants to convince her they’d be perfect together.
Review: I heard a lot about the author and was curious to discover one of her novels.
Sophie has always had to comply with her father’s wishes. He manipulates her, models her as he wishes and she accepts it because he always brings her mother up. But here it is, she doesn’t accept his new request, not at all and she doesn’t know how to get out of this story. He sells his company to a great Greek man, but for this sale to happen he wants his daughter to marry the new owner. Why is that? To have an ancestry on the company through her. This idea repulses Sophie, and if she still goes to see Dion, she does everything to look like the worst woman possible so he cancels the wedding on his side. But Dion is determined and he will soon realize that something is wrong with her.
In romance, we can easily find common frames, but I found that the one in this novel was quite original. I loved Sophie’s ideas for Dion to refuse the wedding. But then, the funniest thing is the taxidermy thing with Princess Sasha. Our heroine invents a whole new life for herself that will drive our billionaire crazy. But there is also more to this transaction and we will gradually discover the wounds that Dion hides.
It was a really nice novel and I must say that I had a great time with the story and the characters! Now that I’ve discovered the author, I can’t wait to read more!
I love when I discover a new author that gets me excited to read more of his or her work! Glad that you had a great time with this story and its characters!
Yes! It’s so much fun!
That would be hard on her to be forced toward the marriage. Sounds like she has an original way to get out of it. 🙂
Yeas, she is not happy at all
This sounds like a lot of fun. I don’t think I’d mind an arranged marriage to a billionaire…so as long as he was my age and decent to look at and was nice.
I love it when I find an original romance. I am glad this one worked out for you.
yes it was fun
Wow, an arranged marriage to some guy in a rich family so that it can save their business? It sounds almost like a Medieval historical romance, lol. I’m glad to hear that this book was able to incorporate that into an original and unique story though!
yeah a bit so
I’m glad you enjoyed this story, and discovered a new author to enjoy. I can see how the Taxidermy was a funny thing! Great Review Melliane!
yeah it was so much fun
Why would he go through with it?
But yes they fall in love so all good
ah because he has a reason of his own
