Sophia Andreou has always been the “good daughter” who tried to keep her domineering father happy. She followed the rules and did everything that was asked of her. But this time, her father is asking too much. The family company is crumbling, and her father has arranged a marriage to a Greek billionaire who can save their property business. What?! Umm no thank you. If Cinderella can dress up to win a prince, surely Sophia can do the opposite and ditch hers…
Dion Kourakis has come a long way from being an orphan with only a single friend to his name. Now he runs a billion-dollar investment company and has the respect of everyone in Europe. His charming personality covers a lot of emotional scars, including his desire to make his mentor proud. Dion doesn’t exactly want a bride to go along with his next business deal, and he plans on letting the lass down gently when they meet…
Only, his future bride has turned out to be nothing like what he thought she’d be. She’s quirky and has a habit of turning up to social events in strange outfits. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what she’s up to, but the harder she tries to convince him she’d be an awful wife, the more he wants to convince her they’d be perfect together.
“My loyalty is no the issue. Aren’t you concerned about a guy who wants a wife thrown in with a business deal? I’m not a gift with purchase!”
Stefanie London is a new to me author and I know that I will be adding more of her books to my reading list in the future.
I loved this story from the very beginning. Sophia’s father arranged for her to marry Greek billionaire, Dion as part of a business deal. Of course, Dion has his own reasons for agreeing to this crazy business deal. Sophia is completely against this, but she will do anything for her mother. So she comes up with a plan to scare Dion out of marrying her.
Sophia’s plan had me laughing from the way she dressed, from the way she acted and of course with her crazy hobbies she had. I loved how much a role this continued to play throughout the story.
Dion hadn’t grown up with a ton of money, he grew up in an orphanage and made a better life for himself. His childhood fueled him throughout his adult life. He purely wants to marry Sophia for selfish reasons, but what he doesn’t expect her hobbies or really anything about her. She was completely unexpected in every way possible.
This story was entertaining. There was laughs, there was a little drama, romance, steamy and overall it was just a fun story.
