rounding up from 3.5 stars
Cute, quick, clean read. A lot of “prince meets working class girl” stories I’ve read follow the formula of prince and unsuitable but lovely girl meet, the king/queen object, but love wins out in the end. This one was a little different because the king/queen objection isn’t a part of the story at all. And the unsuitable one appears to be the prince, not the commoner. So the commoner makes the prince a better man and everyone lives happily ever after. That isn’t a spoiler right? Cause you already know that is going to happen.
Because it is short, there isn’t a lot of time to develop the story. You kind of have to fill in the gaps yourself. But it was enjoyable and sweet, and the hea applies to everyone not just the prince and his love. It feels like a modern fairy tale.
No sex, language or violence
makes passing references to drug use of sister who died of overdose 6 months before story began. Necessary part of the plot.
