A struggling antiques collector finds herself falling in love with a millionaire playboy; but can she ever be a part of his world?
Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.
While her friends have broken free of their insecurities, Ariel Waters is struggling to come out of her shell. Her ex-husband took away her voice and her self-confidence, and Ariel is drowning under a sea of debt to afford the alimony she has to pay him. She refuses to ever fall for a man’s charms again, and is determined to make her own way.
When her house and her beloved antiques are taken by the bank after too many missed payments, Ariel finds herself adrift until the infuriatingly charming Eric Sailor comes to her rescue. Although she can’t stand the millionaire playboy, Eric’s kindness and unconditional support reveal hidden depths and a love that Ariel never imagined she could find.
But there are outside influences who will stop at nothing to keep them apart; can Ariel and Eric weather the storm and find a way to be together?
First of all, just a quick note: This book can be read as a standalone but I really wouldn't recommend it. There's so much in this book that has been steadily built throughout the series that I'd highly recommend reading both At the Stroke of Midnight and In Bed with the Beast first.
This series of modern-day fairy tale re-tellings has been fantastic throughout with hysterical laughs, sweet, tender emotion, sizzling chemistry and 3 strong, powerful women who aren't willing to give up even when they're at rock bottom.
I adored books 1 and 2 in this series, and Kiss the Girl was a great finale, even if it wasn't my favourite book of the series.
As you can probably gather, this book is about Ariel and is a Little Mermaid re-telling (with a twist). Ariel is the loudest, most-opinionated and mouthy woman of the trio, but even she has struggles and insecurities that she keeps hidden behind her personality.
In this book it's nice to see the other side of Ariel, the side she keeps hidden from everyone but Eric.
There were plenty of sweet moments between these two characters and a lot of sexual chemistry. I loved the build-up, and how their relationship evolved over the course of the book.
Kiss the Girl promises plenty of fun, and even though it's at times a little cheesy, it's a romantic read with a really positive feminist message running throughout.
If you're looking for a very unconventional princess with a loud mouth and a blazing personality, a handsome prince, an evil b**** (oh, I meant witch!), strong friendships, several fish and even a hairless cat named Derek, this is the book for you!
