    2.5 3 It was hard not to like the heroine She reminded me a bit of the heroine from Graham s The Spanish Groom She tended toward being a bit plump depending on your POV She was the type who d never met a stranger, had no filter, and would give her lunch to a homeless guy Kind of a Mary Sue, but so goofy that she s likeable Still, even in HP land, it was hard to buy how naive she was 22 yrs old didn t know how to drive and never been kissed.I liked the hero less so His little brother l 2.5 3 It was hard not to like the heroine She reminded me a bit of the heroine from Graham s The Spanish Groom She tended toward being a bit plump depending on your POV She was the type who d never met a stranger, had no filter, and would give her lunch to a homeless guy Kind of a Mary Sue, but so goofy that she s likeable Still, even in HP land, it was hard to buy how naive she was 22 yrs old didn t know how to drive and never been kissed.I liked the hero less so His little brother lost vengeance routine was just bordering on pathetic He seemed the cold calculating vengeful HP tycoon on the surface, but it didn t take much digging to see that he was really just trying to get his big brother s attention and respect For me that kind of knocked down his alpha status a bit The only reason their romance worked for me was that it was clear that the H was reallylike the heroine than the big bad wolf he d made himself into Like her, he grew up in rural Alaska and unlike his hated older brother, he had loved the simple life He wasn t the one with the ambitions of regaining the family wealth and position He had followed his brother in those things, when really all he wanted to do was be able to take care of the ones he loved and keep the family home.Technically Kasmira was a Russian Prince, but the title meant nothing beyond impressing the business world society His great grandfather had managed to smuggled his wife and child to Alaska during the Communist revolution before returning to face the fate of all the royals of that period In reality, Kasimir was raised as an American citizen living the rugged life of a rural Alaskan Of course there were always the stories of the family s past, but it was far from his reality I normally don t go in for the prince marries Cinderella stories, but like the heroine I saw the title as meaningless.The saccharine way that everything came together in the end nearly gave me a toothache Too many Hallmark moments.I would recommend it for fans of Cinderella stories where the Prince really just wants to be a regular family guy

    I think Jennie Lucas might give Lynne Graham a run for her money with the sweet, naive heroine theme Josie is as sweet as they come She really seems out of her league with Kasimir It seems like shooting fish in the barrel But Kasimir never knew what hit him Before he knew it, his plans for revenge that involved Josie were flying away like birdies, and he was stone cold in love.Jennie Lucas understands the appeal of escapist fantasy romance and she delivers it While most of the readers of t I think Jennie Lucas might give Lynne Graham a run for her money with the sweet, naive heroine theme Josie is as sweet as they come She really seems out of her league with Kasimir It seems like shooting fish in the barrel But Kasimir never knew what hit him Before he knew it, his plans for revenge that involved Josie were flying away like birdies, and he was stone cold in love.Jennie Lucas understands the appeal of escapist fantasy romance and she delivers it While most of the readers of this genre won t know what it s like to swept off our feet by a ruthless billionaire, and probably don t want it in real life, Lucas gives us a 2 hour read that allows us to explore the possibilities That s why I like this series of books so much It s a different world and I like that I can spend two hours in that world Kasimir is a very bad man Well, at least he was I mean, he wants to be But I think deep down, he s a decent fellow who forgot what was important in life He lost everything, and when you lose everything, you have nothing to lose Josie teaches him what it means to love and to sacrifice for love She teaches him what it means to be a genuine person And she teaches him to follow his heart and love passionately.I really liked the first book, Dealing Her Final Card, but I think I liked this one evenIt feltlike Princess fantasy I liked that they are actually married, and she s not just a mistress And I think the change in Kasimir isdramatic than in Vladimir I also think it s because this was not a reunion romance The feelings between Josie and Kasimir develop on the page before my mesmerized eyes, and I enjoyed every page of it.Plus the ending was so sweetly romantic, it made me sigh.I have to give this one 4.5 5.0 stars

    As KatieV wrote, this has a strong Lynne Graham vibe The heroine is a daffy little duck struggling through life and the hero is not even near the villain he pretends to be.The H wants revenge and some stuff family property and a corporation from his older brother what he really wants is lovvins and is going to use the heroine s devotion to her overbearing sister who conveniently happens to be the big brother s lover.MOC is engaged and the hero is in lusty love To make a long story short th As KatieV wrote, this has a strong Lynne Graham vibe The heroine is a daffy little duck struggling through life and the hero is not even near the villain he pretends to be.The H wants revenge and some stuff family property and a corporation from his older brother what he really wants is lovvins and is going to use the heroine s devotion to her overbearing sister who conveniently happens to be the big brother s lover.MOC is engaged and the hero is in lusty love To make a long story short they make love and he decides to hurt her for her own good and give her up.There were parts toward the end that were saccharine sweet, but the tortured hero act is engaged and we end up with s HEA.From what I read the H and h s older siblings sound kind of awful although I am sure they are redeemed in their own book for being the controlling know it alls as they are presented in this one.This cynical review was brought to you by the Corona Virus so please take it with a grain of salt

    Aww this was one perfect read The heroine was adorable I was like I just wanna put you in my pocket and take you home She was naive but in a good way She had a loving, trusting heart and so she choose to believe the best about Kasimir She was completely honest about her feelings and nothing like the typical annoying Harlequin heroines that all they do is whine cause the hero doesn t pay enough attention to them Ugh Kasimir was also very likable He wanted to appear ruthless of course but Aww this was one perfect read The heroine was adorable I was like I just wanna put you in my pocket and take you home She was naive but in a good way She had a loving, trusting heart and so she choose to believe the best about Kasimir She was completely honest about her feelings and nothing like the typical annoying Harlequin heroines that all they do is whine cause the hero doesn t pay enough attention to them Ugh Kasimir was also very likable He wanted to appear ruthless of course but in reality he was a softie His wife s innocence disarmed him completely and when he thought he lost her my heart broke for him I was so happy Josie ended up pregnant and got her white picket fence dream and the man of her dreams 5 stars for sure

    4 starsI really enjoyed this book mainly because of the heroine who was just so real She was 22 and an innocent who saw the good in people Having lost her mother, she was raised by her father who was always gone with her sister, playing poker Then her sister Bree cosseted her, now Josie s foolishness cost her sister so to make up for that she accepts the hero s proposition, marriage He ll get her land and in return he will save her sister, from his enemy, his brother.The hero adored his olde 4 starsI really enjoyed this book mainly because of the heroine who was just so real She was 22 and an innocent who saw the good in people Having lost her mother, she was raised by her father who was always gone with her sister, playing poker Then her sister Bree cosseted her, now Josie s foolishness cost her sister so to make up for that she accepts the hero s proposition, marriage He ll get her land and in return he will save her sister, from his enemy, his brother.The hero adored his older brother but his drunken mistake humiliated his brother and on top of what he perceived as a betrayal by Bree the previous book Dealing her final card , he cut off his brother, cheating him The hero was all betrayed by the first woman he had been with and he became bitter, focusing the last decade on revenge.Bree s book was fine but this is so much better Josie s doesn t have that much confidence but the hero is so great with her Despite having hidden motives, he doesn t treat her badly except for when he ties her up once when she is creating a huge ruckus She is all things good and he doesn t want to sully her He gives her what she wants and allows her freedom and the chance to be herself.Though in the end his fear and desperation to hold on to her and hide the truth drives her away I loved Josie for being all grown up at that moment He had to work hard to get her back

    If I could, I would ve given it 10 stars I absolutely loved this story.Heroine was a precious gem Such a sweet, innocent character I thought she would ve forgiven hero in a blink but she made him grovel and I liked herfor it.Hero was a tortured soul Even though he is known as selfish and ruthless, he treated heroine with respect and kindness from the beginning He also wasn t afraid to say sorry and grovel Loved the ending and epilogue Recommended.
