Summary: THE TAMING OF A PRINCESS…
Serena Van Buren, the privileged daughter of a wealthy businessman, can’t wait to begin her three-month tour of Europe with her college mates. Little does she know that fate has other plans in store!
Instead of dancing with handsome Italians and dining with charming Frenchmen Serena finds herself trapped in a six-month internship with overbearing business tycoon, Roman Steele – an arrangement orchestrated by her own father.
Serena is determined to show Roman that she won’t yield to the demands of any man, boss or no boss. She’s a Van Buren, after all, known to wither a man with one look. But Roman Steele is like no man she’s ever met before. Suave, sexy and stunningly handsome, there’s something about him that she can’t resist. It looks like Serena Van Buren has finally met her match.
A sweet and saucy romance that will have you smiling…
Ugh, I was absolutely so excited to delve into this billionaire romance. The premise of a slight enemies-to-lovers, age-gap and spoiled-vs-arrogant themes in this story were right up my ally.
Unfortunately I just couldn’t connect with the characters at all. Serena had so much room to grow throughout this story, but she didn’t really show any growth at all. She was pretty whiny and unlikable to me. Even when she started working hard to “prove” she can, her personality didn’t change much.
Roman wasn’t a great hero either. He was attracted to Serena, but there was no real interactions between the two that made me feel or think that they would actually be “together.” I’m not sure. I guess, I just couldn’t feel the chemistry. Maybe it was because the book was on the shorter side?
I did read it fast, but I actually skimmed some of it which I never do.
While, I didn’t enjoy this one, it’s still a good read for anyone looking for a quick romance with a guaranteed HEA.
