Favorite Quotes: Trust me, I am not normally a head-turner. At least not for the right reasons. There was one time at work when I noticed that people’s eyes were following me across the office and then I realised I was trailing a six-foot long piece of loo roll from my shoe. I was a head-turner that day. And then there was another time when people kept glancing at me on the tube. I thought maybe they were checking me out. It was only when I got off that I realised I had bird s*&# in my hair. I was definitely turning heads that day. There are five images of my butt in total, bulging in white lace. My bum looks so big that I’m beginning to wonder if the photos have been edited or taken with a fish-eye lens or something… ‘Someone has described me as a “cheeky mare”,’ I say, reading one of the comments aloud… I look down to find another comment, with hundreds of up-ratings. ‘That’s ANUStonishing view!’ My Review: I enjoy the engaging manner in which Zoe May spins a tale while generously weaving in clever levity, endearingly quirky and awkward characters, insightful observations, and wryly-comical descriptions and inner musings. I enjoyed the storylines as well as all the creative extra touches tossed in as added treats, such as the witty puns used in the creation of greeting cards by Samantha’s friend and roommate. Samantha was a political reporter who was well acclimated to covering Westminster with no interest in the royals but when a co-worker went on maternity leave, Samantha’s boss reassigned her to cover all the hoopla and madness leading up to and following the upcoming nuptials of a British reality star and a Norwegian prince. Samantha was greatly annoyed by the switch to fluffy news as well as the extravagance and ridiculousness of how her fellow associates in the press rapturously swooned over each minuscule detail of the event. However, she kept running into one particularly appealing and charismatic reporter who always seemed to have an inside scoop as well as familiarity with all the wedding vendors. And then she really ran into him, with her car.

This is a hilarious romcom that I thoroughly enjoyed reading. Sam is a politics journalist who has struggled after being jilted at the author. The last thing she wants is to be covering the story of the Royal Wedding, especially as she no longer believes in love or fairy tales. As she endeavours to put aside her personal feelings, she has so many things to investigate in preparation for the big day - who knew there was so much to learn about flower arranging, or so many different cake options, for example? As Sam struggles to complete some of the tasks, the handsome Anders keeps coming to her rescue. Just who is he? Can she really let him sweep her off her feet? What's his secret? This is such a funny story, I giggled my way through it. You really won't anticipate some of the situations Sam gets herself into! It is a light-hearted, somewhat irreverent look at the journalists who cover the pomp and ceremony of a Royal Wedding and a modern day, fairy tale, royal romance. If you're looking for a right royal fun read that'll put a smile on your face grab yourself a copy! I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.

This book reminded me a lot of when I first started reading what I call "chick lit", back in the late 90s, early 2000s. In a good way. It was funny, sweet, and a real page turner. A lot of the books I was reading back then were actually set in England, so it was fun to read all the different English phrases and terms that are not what I usually hear in my day to day life. It was a lot of fun thinking about the whole Royal Wedding that just recently took place, obviously, especially now that the new Royal baby has been born as well! It reminded me that even though I may never get married myself, the reason I still kind of want a wedding is all the cake tasting and food choosing, etc. I can see getting swept up in all the madness if I had been over in England during the Royal Weddings of the past, but I also totally get Sam's pessimistic take on all things to do with love. And I haven't even been left at the altar! If you enjoy a sweet romance with some royalty thrown in along with lots of fun British mannerisms, this is the book for you!

For Sam work is her number one purpose in life. After a disastrous wedding day that left her heartbroken, she is no longer interested in relationships. She wants to be independent and successful and will do it on her own. Sam is a political journalist at a national newspaper and she loves her job. Her boss temporarily has something different in mind for her though, he will give her a challenge, she has to cover the upcoming royal wedding. Sam wants to refuse, she doesn't do weddings and dislikes romance, but she doesn't have a choice. She has to write about the event, whether she likes it or not. Sam meets Anders in an elevator. He's also involved in the royal wedding, but not for the same paper. Because of her new task Sam keeps running into him. The handsome mysterious man piques her interest and finally Sam is ready to spend time with a man again. However, she seems to make a mess of every meeting they have, but he also makes her smile. Anders has a good influence on her attitude towards her new job, will he reawaken Sam's romantic feelings and what will happen when sparks start to fly? There's something Sam doesn't know that can change the way she sees him forever... How (Not) to Date a Prince is an endearing romantic story. I was immediately fascinated by the handsome and enigmatic Anders. He's a kindhearted man and genuinely seems to care about Sam. I loved the chemistry between them and liked that they have a great click on an intellectual level as well. Sam doesn't believe in love anymore, but Anders makes her reconsider. I liked how Sam lowers her guard every time they're together. She's a smart and capable woman who deserves to be loved and cherished. My eagerness to find out if they'd get their happily ever after made me read How (Not) to Date a Prince in one sitting. Zoe May has a wonderful funny writing style and her vivid and hilarious descriptions of Sam's adventures often made me laugh out loud. I was enchanted by Sam's assignment and loved every detail of the process of covering a royal wedding. Zoe May clearly knows what she's writing about when she describes Sam's job and that made the story really enjoyable for me. I love a good true love story with plenty of drama and that's exactly what How (Not) to Date a Prince is all about. It's such an amusing book filled with surprising scenes. The ending is incredibly fitting and melted my heart. How (Not) to Date a Prince is a gorgeous love story.
