Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Give Me Books Promotions and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".


Cleopatra Paige hates one thing in this world -- just one -- and his name is Zachariah Prince.

In grade school, he pulled at her pigtails. In middle school, he spread false rumors about her. And in high school, he ruined her prom.

She hates that his smirks are unfairly sexy. And she definitely loathes that his dark eyes seem to follow her everywhere. Sometimes, even in her dreams.

It doesn’t matter that he’s rich and popular or that he lives in a freaking mansion full of butlers and maids. He’s rude and arrogant, and she wants to stay as far away from him as possible.

But unfortunately for Cleo, she lives in the same freaking mansion as Zach.

Only he’s the prince and she’s the lowly maid who serves him.

My Thoughts:

I don’t usually read the blurb because I don’t want to go in with any expectations. This time, the blurb caught my attention and left me saying, “I have to read this book.” And by the time I got done, I know that I had made the right decision. Please make sure to read the author’s dedication. By the end of the book you may want to send her a thank you.

Cleopatra “Cleo” Paige is an honorable young woman even though what she does may be a little unorthodox. She likes to fight for the underdog. At some point in your life you may even have been in her shoes.

Zachariah “Zach” Prince seems to be mad at the world. Instead of directing his anger where it belongs, he finds someone else to be his target. But someone sees something in him that he can’t see for himself

The author covers two themes here. The biggest one is bullying. A bully can be any size, any gender, and any age. On top of that, our author covers a learning disability. I’m sure that was a tough thing for our author to do and it impressed me.

Her story had an easy flow to it and nothing seemed to drag or stick in neutral as if something was going on just a little too long. There was one scene where I actually wished that I had been there so that I could clap rather loudly – it just called for it. At no time did I feel as if something was missing. Her main characters were a great mix of a**hole and someone who was spunky with a very smart mouth – and who had me chuckling a time or two. One thing was certain; this was a very pleasant surprise. It will be interesting to see what she has in store for her readers next.
