Happy New Year to you all! I hope it has started out well for you. I am starting out my new year on here with some reviews of fantastic one-click free finds I found on Amazon. These are books that sounded good and knocked my socks off. Today I am reviewing One Night with the Prince by TM Mendes. Despite its title this is a pretty tame book. Though it’s a bit tame the story is fantastic, fun and very addicting. I couldn’t put this book down. For my full review keep reading after the book blurb. Be sure to pop over this week for more of my wonderful one-click freebie finds!
The rules were simple: 15 girls were chosen from royal bloodlines to be with the Prince. They are given one night each with him, and in the end he shall choose a bride and make her Queen. So how did someone from Montana, USA get involved in something that was supposed to be for those chosen? Anna sure doesn’t know, but she knew that she had to stay away from the Prince as much as she could. With her mischievous ways and un-royal manners, she was sure that the Prince wouldn’t pick her. But what if the Prince was as determined to be with her as she was determined to stay away from him? Experience “One Night with the King” meets “Princess Diaries” told with humor in this romantic comedy for all ages and find out what happens when a person goes from nada to royalty.
Anna is definitely not a fan of rules. In fact, if she can pull a prank and break some rules that is when she is having the most fun. This Montana girl has pulled more pranks in her high school career than her principal can count but still seems to maintain a flawless grade point average. So, when Anna is yet again suspended she finds herself bored and listening to the radio. Anna tunes in just in time to enter a contest and wins a trip to another country. Since she is suspended what better way to use her time than to travel to a far off place. Unfortunately when she arrives it’s a bit less exciting than she thought and while trying to shop she is mistaken for one of the 15 young ladies in a competition for the Prince’s hand in marriage. While Anna is trying to explain the mistake she makes waves with her very unroyal behavior and outspoken ways. This makes the prince even more intrigued. But, when Anna meets the prince she realizes that he is the last person she wants to be around and tries all she can to stay away from him. The only problem is he is as stubborn as she is and will try anything to get close to this feisty girl from Montana.
I adored this book. I have read Kiera Cass’s Selection series and this is a bit reminiscent of that. Though I do feel that the heroine of Anna is more entertaining and fun. You can see immediately why the people around her love her compassion and her heart. Her character is only one of the many fantastic characters. Zach is definitely a good opposite to her. He is also the character you see the most change out of. It is fun to see him change and evolve to a great leading man. We can’t leave out the friends of them. Missy, Danny and Dem are all memorable and adorable. You can’t help but laugh out loud with some of the shenanigans they all get into. This really was a fun love story with lots of swoon-worthy moments and laugh out loud pranks. Overall, I would whole-heartedly recommend this book as a refreshing read that will brighten your day and wish you’d have your one night with a prince.
