Book Review: A Princess Problem by Diane Darcy

****--4 Stars.
In real life, she's given up on the fairy tale ending...

After having her heart broken twice, Alicia Dayne has sworn off men, decided to concentrate on her career, and is delighted to win a lucrative contract to make a commercial for Highborn Mattresses.

She could make the most awesome fairy tale commercial ever--except for Jonas Highborn, who isn't exactly thrilled with her Princess and the Pea ideas, and really doesn't want a prince in tights representing his company.

Though he's trying to keep his grieving mother happy by letting her have charge of the commercial shoot, and though Alicia's trying to keep in mind that this annoying guy is her boss for the moment, they can't seem to keep from clashing.

Throw in an overly-handsome prince, a matchmaking mama, and a stunning rose garden, and maybe, just maybe, Alicia can be convinced they have a chance at something real.

Because while she might not be a real princess, sometimes an ordinary girl's got to take a chance, even when it seems too good to be true.

When did Happily Ever After become so complicated?

My Review: This is a darling little novella!! I'm a sucker for a cute fairy tale-type book--I mean, don't most girls dream about being a princess? This was a fun, light story that had all the elements of a longer novel.

Willa, the mom, was a fun, feisty, sneaky character. She was a lot of fun, meddling around. I loved the chemistry that Jonas and Alicia had--bantering, laughing, and flirting. Jonas was a riot and oh so intimidating--one of Portland's most eligible bachelors; owner of a big, successful business; gorgeous.

I love that it was short, yet I didn't feel cheated. The story unfolded in a fun way, without loose ends. This seems to be a fun series for lovers of modern versions of fairy tales.
