“I’d give up my whole kingdom to be with you. I want to be your Prince Charming.”
Aria has a big heart but bigger problems. Her whole life is a mess thanks to her controlling stepmother.
But when she's knocked over- literally- by the hottest man she's ever had the pleasure of tangling up her body with, everything changes.
Henry Prescott, second-string rugby player for the Paradisa Royals, is funny, sweet, charming, and oh-so-sexy. He's got a rock hard body and tackles her in bed as fiercely as he tackled her in the park. Knowing nothing about rugby, but absolutely intoxicated by his accent, she finds herself falling for him.
There's only one problem: Henry Prescott doesn't exist.
The man she thinks she loves is actually Prince Henry, second in line for the throne of the nation of Paradisa. He's the man who Aria's entire department has to impress for trade relations. And that makes Aria's stepmother's plans even more dangerous.
He's the man who could destroy her world or make all her dreams come true.
He lied about being a prince... did he also lie about being in love?

I loved this book and it has been placed on my re-read story!
Love the characters...Aria is the girl next door that we can all imagine to be someone we know. She's loyal, even to her dearly departed father, hardworking, smart, and pretty. Everyone who comes in contact with her falls in love with her...except for her mean step-sister and ultra wicked step-mother. She has ambitions, a plan, and is willing to sacrifice to make her dreams become a reality
She's on her way when she literally falls over the prince, who she knows to be a rugby player named Henry. Henry is swoon-worthy beyond more than his good looks. He stands by Aria when she's hassled by her step-mother and when she realizes that she needs to take a stand.
As I've come to know from this author, the supporting characters and the storyline are first rate. While the story is well known, the way Ms. Lakes takes the characters through a modernized journey that is so familiar will warm your heart.
While the main story ends as one expects, my hope is that Ms. Lakes has left room for a sequel with Aria's BFF and Henry's bodyguard....please!!
I voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.

We all need someone to help us slay the dragons
Such a beautiful story!! It was sweet & emotional with some blackmail and secrets thrown in to keep things shook up! And oh boy did Krista Lakes shake things up!! You really never know how much an accidental encounter can forever change the course of your life but Aria and Henry sure do find out. I laughed, I cried and may have screamed at the pages a time or two. But I loved every single word that was written.
