Published by Swerve on 09/04/2018
A struggling antiques collector finds herself falling in love with a millionaire playboy; but can she ever be a part of his world?
Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.
While her friends have broken free of their insecurities, Ariel Waters is struggling to come out of her shell. Her ex-husband took away her voice and her self-confidence, and Ariel is drowning under a sea of debt to afford the alimony she has to pay him. She refuses to ever fall for a man’s charms again, and is determined to make her own way.
When her house and her beloved antiques are taken by the bank after too many missed payments, Ariel finds herself adrift until the infuriatingly charming Eric Sailor comes to her rescue. Although she can’t stand the millionaire playboy, Eric’s kindness and unconditional support reveal hidden depths and a love that Ariel never imagined she could find.
But there are outside influences who will stop at nothing to keep them apart; can Ariel and Eric weather the storm and find a way to be together?
Tara Sivec’s writing is very unique, and one that I’ve come to find I have to be in a specific mood for, because even being familiar with her writing, I didn’t love Kiss the Girl the way I expected to love it.
Don’t get me wrong – I enjoyed it, especially the first half. It was funny and cute, and cheesy in a way that I expected and anticipated so I kind of enjoyed it. Everyone needs a little cheese every once in a while. But while I liked the first half, and even liked the book overall, it kind of started to fall apart towards the end.
If you’ve read Tara Sivec before, you know that she has a very crude and boisterous sense of humor. Her writing can be absolutely hilarious, and while I chuckled a few times, it seemed more forced in this book for some reason. I like when her humor comes a little more organically.
Again, I didn’t dislike this book at all. Kiss the Girl didn’t make me swoon the way In Bed with the Beast did, but it’s light-hearted and fun, definitely a good go-to book if you’re just coming off of a particularly heavy read.
