Description from Goodreads:
Two Princes are in love with her. Too bad she’s an imposter…
Hold tight to your tiara, grab your sceptre and be prepared for the New Adult hilarious, modern-day romantic-comedy ride of your life!
Lucy Trabbicio’s a down-on-her-luck, young, American, former biker-bar cocktail waitress desperate to find a job. Lady Elizabeth Billingsley hires Lucy to travel to Fredonia, the tiny jewel of a country in the Alps, for ten days ‘tops’ to impersonate her.
Say what? How the heck is that going to happen?
In the mother of all makeovers, Elizabeth’s people teach Lucy how to dress, walk, talk, eat, be coiffed and even get naked like a European Lady.
To keep Crown Prince Cristoph Timmel interested in Elizabeth until she finishes her unexpected, pressing personal business in the States.
But fate intervenes… Lucy meets and is wildly attracted to sexy, bad-boy Nick on the oh-so-long flights to Fredonia. Unfortunately for Lucy – Nick and Elizabeth have a hot sexual history, which Nick wants to immediately resume.
I have a bit of a thing for modern day fairytales, when girl meets prince. The little Disney obsessed girl in me fangirls and falls in love every time. Part-time Princess was no exception.
Lucy is a really fun and likeable character, and I enjoyed reading about her. Although the story line was a little far-fetched I still think that it seemed realistic as Lucy was very down to earth. Lucy’s narrative is full of wit and humour, making me laugh out loud on more than a few occasions.
I’ve read quite a few modern-day fairytales, and Part-time Princess is definitely up there as one of my favourites. I stayed up all night just so I could finish reading it and find out who Lucy would end up with. Because there was not one, but two princes. How is a girl supposed to cope with that? I commend you for keeping your cool Lucy.
As with any romance book I had a ship, Lucy and Nick all the way. Christopher did absolutely nothing for me, it’s all about the bad-boy, leather jacket wearing, motorbike driving, black haired Nick. How could you refuse a bad-boy? And not just any bad-boy, a prince! A lovely one at that too.
One of the only negative things I have to say about Part-time Princess, and the reason it didn’t get the fifth star, is that I wanted more Nick and Lucy action. I really enjoyed what was there, I just wanted more. Whether that be middle or end, I’m not too fussed, it would just be nice to see more interaction between the two of them.
Despite that teeny tiny negative, I thoroughly enjoyed reading Part-time Princess. I’ll definitely be reading more of Pamela DuMond’s work, and the rest of the Ladies In Waiting Series! Have you read Part-time Princess? Let me know what you thought in the comments!
