My not-so-secret affair with romance novels
To resist the perfect man, please follow these simple rules: Step 1: Never make eye contact.This novel by Linda Kage is chock-full of family drama, secrets, and of course, feel-good but forbidden romance. How to Resist Prince Charming is precisely how I like my chick-lit reads to be – a sweet and funny page-turner!What hooks me on a book is the characterization. I do believe I really liked everyone in HRPC, with the exception of Lenna’s dad. Lenna is a good match for Braxton and their connection was palpable. The author did a good job conveying the intensity of their chemistry, because I was rooting for them to just give in and get together already! I became invested in their relationship and rode the high’s and low’s with them.I would recommend this book to others; How to Resist Prince Charming was a good introduction to Ms. Kage’s work and I look forward to reading more from her.
Step 2: Never smile at him.
Step 3: Never agree to anything he suggests. Or better yet, just follow Lenna Davenport’s example and give in to temptation, sparking a whole tangle of passion, forbidden romance, mounting secrets and deceit. She meets her prince charming at her father’s company Christmas party. Problem is he happens to be her dad’s new boss. Worse problem is, her dad totally hates him. But what Daddy doesn’t know… Braxton Farris takes over Farris Industries out of family obligation and expects his new employees might resent his youth and inexperience. What he doesn’t anticipate is the level of contempt Tom Davenport carries for him. Nor does he count on falling for Tom’s daughter. When he and Lenna start a secret affair, a disaster of corporate proportions is bound to follow. But to be together, they must decide if the fallout is worth it.
