REVIEW | THE PRINCE'S PLAN BY E.M. YOUMAN

She can’t trust him…or her desire for him.

Marnie Ducello is way past second chances. Most days she’s fighting to forget the past and stay sober—a combination she doesn’t always pull off. She’s done waiting for Prince Charming. So when a sexy stranger turns out to be an arrogant, cab-stealing jerk, Marnie isn’t surprised. If only her rash reaction to his rudeness hadn’t resulted in her arrest. . .

Singer Danny Roland is no prince. He has fame, fortune, and a not-so-hidden addiction. He’s running from memories of the lives he’s ruined. Keeping his personal demons under control and out of the tabloids is what Danny wants more than anything. After a simple drug deal goes very wrong, Danny decides to make karmic amends—by finding the woman he abandoned to the police. 


Marnie’s a recovering addict, too, so he offers her the deal of a lifetime: a job as his personal assistant and a safe space in his home to live in if she stays sober.

Marnie is soon swept up into Danny’s world of prying paparazzi and vengeful exes. She can’t help the burning attraction between them, but she can’t trust Danny—or herself. And when Danny’s brother begins to pursue her, Marnie and Danny must both come to terms with the painful secrets that haunt them. They’re both broken…but maybe together they can be unbreakable.


When I stumbled upon the blurb of "The Prince's Plan", I was so excited to read it and the blurb was quite interesting. Also, the book had a very good GR rating so I decided to request the author for an ARC!!

EXPECTATIONS



REALITY



What in the hell did I read? Oh, why did I bear this torture? b>This book definitely didn't work for me Beginning was OK and I thought that maybe it would get interesting after few chapters but it just went downhill. Somewhere near the middle I seriously wanted to smash my head into the wall *and not in a good way*

The story is about Marnie and Danny, two recovering addicts who helped each other to overcome their addiction and ultimately fell in love. Sounds interesting right?? but believe me it's not as good as it sounds.

This book meant to be a dark romance but it wasn't so. I was not able to connect to the characters or story and I really tried to get into the book.

Marnie and Danny were supposed to heal each other with love as they had somewhat similar problems. But Danny!! I didn't like him at all and what I hated was his relationship with his ex. I mean, grow-up Man you say that you love Marnie and then you are having sex with your ex and one night stands *are u kidding me?* so much for romance. Also, the story was more elaborated than required. First few chapters were even not needed. There was nothing romantic until the middle of the book.

I was not even unable to understand Danny's and Marnie's relationship. They were hooking with each other and then someone else. 

This book had worked for most of the readers but not for me. I just don't like cheating and all. If it's supposed to be a love story then please give us love not betrayals!!


Again I expected to really like this book but as I already mentioned, it was not my type.
But I suggest the readers, to take a look at other reviews before making their call

Five Things 'FIVE FEET APART' Taught Us

'Five Feet Apart' is an American Romantic Drama,  inspired by a real-life couple Dalton and Katie Prager, who both suffered from  cystic fibrosis . As you all know that I'm not a movie person, I'd choose books anytime over movies but as I am going through 'Reader's Slump' so I decided to watch Netflix and guess what? I found this treasure. This movie impacted me greatly so I decided to share all my takings with you all. Let's start! 1. Live Big because life don't give us enough chances. 2. Take risks , you never know which moment is your last.  3. Love! Don't be scared of it. Loving won't kill you but not doing it will surely kill a part of you. 4. Take chances! We can die today, we can die tomorrow but we can also make our life worth living. 5. Breathe! Take a deep breath and enjoy your today. We are all on borrowed time. Instead of focusing on making your tomorrow good, make your today even better.

REVIEW: Broken Knight by L.J. Shen

Not all love stories are written the same way. Ours had torn chapters, missing paragraphs, and a bittersweet ending. Luna Rexroth is everyone’s favorite wallflower. Sweet. Caring. Charitable. Quiet. Fake. Underneath the meek, tomboy exterior everyone loves (yet pities) is a girl who knows exactly what, and who, she wants—namely, the boy from the treehouse who taught her how to curse in sign language. Who taught her how to laugh. To live. To love. Knight Cole is everyone’s favorite football hero. Gorgeous. Athletic. Rugged. Popular. Liar. This daredevil hell-raiser could knock you up with his gaze alone, but he only has eyes for the girl across the street: Luna. But Luna is not who she used to be. She doesn’t need his protection anymore. When life throws a curveball at All Saints’ golden boy, he’s forced to realize not all knights are heroes. Sometimes, the greatest love stories flourish in tragedy TITLE- Broken Knight AUTHOR- L.J. Shen FORMAT- E
