Workaholic Allie Fine isn’t thrilled about a surprise birthday trip to the French countryside, where there’s nothing to do but drink wine and tour old castles. But boredom takes a hike when a sexy period actor shows up to be her special between-the-sheets gift.
Maximillian De Leon, the towering god with eyes of gold and pecs of steel, is the most incredible lover she’s ever had. But Allie wakes with confusion when her French lover tells her he’s actually Prince Maximillian, and he hasn’t seen the light of day since 1789.
Crazy or not, Max De Leon is the hottest man Allie’s ever met—and the perfect piece on her arm to impress the corporate brass and take her career to the next level. So what if he keeps claiming he has to marry her to break a centuries-old curse in order to stay alive. He’ll get over that soon enough…right?
Fairy tales and me? Not a match made in heaven. Or anything close to it.
I am not new to reading the Misadventures series, but this is the first book I have read from Angel Payne. That being said, I really enjoyed this book. I really liked the idea about it and it was a different kind of read for me.
I loved Max. He didn’t try to shy away that he wasn’t from the present time, yet no one believed he wasn’t. Just thought he was strange. I felt his reactions to the new age technology was realistic and probably how anyone would react in that situation. Alice was hit or miss. I liked her but at the same time I was also frustrated with her, because I wanted her to believe, to fit.
There is no denying the chemistry these two had though. It was explosive from the very first moment they met and just continued to grow and develop from there.
I fell in love with this story and these characters and I hope there is more of them in the future because I definitely want to see what is in store for both Max and Allie.
