Title The Prince's Ex
Author Nadene Seiters
Release Date April 30, 2014
Amelia Radley thought she had it all when she met a man in a bar and he ended up being royalty. Their love affair was anything but boring, and yet he dumped her almost exactly a year after asking her out to their first dinner date. While the wound was deep and fresh thirty days after their separation, she picked up the morning paper only to see that the man she thought she loved had already become engaged to another woman.
Her best friend, Tina, suggests the only thing she knows would make her feel better. Amelia should start dating any man she meets that she likes so that she can get over her ex. The idea is ludicrous, and yet Amelia agrees to a date with a man she has never met before. All the while, she considers herself nothing more than the prince’s ex, a woman who could not hold the affections of every woman’s dream.
When she finds love in an unexpected place, it’s challenged by the past and the future looks rocky. Amelia’s insecurities might get in the way of her finding true love, in more ways than one.
While the story had its interesting parts, the characters made the book more enjoyable for me than the actual storyline.
As for the characters, they were pretty interesting. There's Amelia. I have such mixed emotions about her, but overall I think it's safe to say that I liked her. I can't count how many times I wanted to shake her, but I realize that she's a typical woman. She's confusing (I'm not even sure she knows what she wants!), she's insecure, but above all she's relatable. I think lots of women can understand her. She wants to find someone to spend her life with, but she isn't exactly sure what she needs in a significant other. Then, there's Tina. She's the BFF and the polar opposite of Amelia. I enjoyed her character a lot and I wish we would have seen more of her. And of course, we've got the love interest. I adored him and I like that he brought his own baggage to their relationship. After all, we all have some. There's other characters that really brought life to the story, but I don't want to spoil anything.
The story was a pretty typical romance, but a few different elements thrown in to make it different than all the others. I think I would have liked to explore more of Amelia's relationship with the Prince, so it was a little disappointing that we were thrown into the story after it had ended. Other than that, really, I don't really have much to add about the story. It was sweet and had its funny moments. I would recommend this one for those that really enjoy HEA romances.
3.5 out of 5 stars
