Neither can five-headed trolls (sly things; always keeping secrets). Neither can princes.Especially not princes.In fact, for ex-princess Nikaela, all men are undeniably, unquestionably, indisputably, absolutely, without a doubt and with no exceptions bad news.That’s why she and her ex-princess friend Saige have a nice little swindle going where they fleece unsuspecting noblemen of their pocket change at royal balls. It’s not exactly a lucrative line of business, but it pays the bills.At least it pays the bills until Saige (regrettably not the sharpest eel in the barrel) chooses the wrong man to cross, and she and Nikaela end up cursed!As if that wasn’t bad enough, an unwanted suitor with a head full of chivalrous nonsense and a mind to win Nikaela’s heart chooses that inopportune moment to step back into her life.And as if THAT wasn’t bad enough, a dragon and a would-be hero sweep into Saige’s life.And as if that STILL wasn’t bad enough, the untrustworthy men in their lives are about to turn each girl’s well-ordered opinion of the world on its head....

never trust a prince Reviews
Mild spoilers. Nothing to get antsy over.Never Trust a Prince by Sonya Lano.Thanks to it taking me ages to work out how to use my Kindle for PC, I took longer with this book than I wanted to. Once I worked out how to progress through the novel, I was drawn into the story and laughed more times than I can count.I'd class this book as fantasy/romance/comedy. Definitely comedy. This book is possibly the most quotable book I've ever read. “Embarrassment is against the very definition of a prince. It’s impossible for me to be anything but a sparkling gem in the world’s treasure chest.” “You definitely need to be locked up in a box, but not because you’re pretty or precious.” “I’m going to pretend you mean I’m too handsome to let out.”I'm glad I read this book only at home. I'm embarrassed by how much and how loud I laughed. Who can blame me with quotes like this though?She’d never seen a sight as wonderful as Wyeth coming to rescue her. And from the relieved look on Waterpock’s face, he hadn’t seen a sight as wonderful as Wyeth coming to rescue her, either.I wish I had more quotes, but as I only worked out how to use the 'highlight' function halfway through the book, I've got only a handful. Then again, the book is so well written the whole thing is worthy as one big quote.The writing and the story is fantastic. It's been a long time since I've come across writing of this standard. My inner editor was searching for errors, typos, plot holes but couldn't find any. I definitely can't wait to read more of this author.The story was funny and heartwarming, but it also managed to bring tears to my eyes by the end. It carries an extremely important life lesson that we forget from time to time.“Hey, now , enough of that.” Wyeth shook her again, gentler this time, then ducked his head and peered under the curtain of hair she was hiding behind. “Have faith in yourself, Saige. You can live your own life.”“But what if I make a right fine royal mess of it?” Wyeth chuckled . “That’s the beauty of it – you never know where your decisions are going to take you, but that’s the adventure of life."Kingdoms above, the woman knew how to dash a man’s confidence!But then he noted the almost uncatchable flash of sadness in her eyes.She was sad?She was sad.She was sad!I raced through this at the end, and cannot wait to delve into some of the author's other work.One final quote.“Ha, see! They are vegetarian!” Nikaela pointed out triumphantly to Nate as the troll heads contentedly crunched the leaves. “You eat salads, too,” Nate groused back. “Doesn’t mean you don’t eat meat every now and then to spice up your palate.”
Well written hilarious tale of two princesses travels after being booted out of their kingdoms. Humorous descriptions of ordinary things adds to the fast moving dialog that makes for a very enjoyable read.
4.5 stars.I really enjoyed this book. It was fast-paced, witty and hilarious. It's also very well written with interesting settings and characters. I never knew what was going to happen next and often found myself laughing out loud.A must read!
Yep, enjoyable and very funny. If you're going on Summer holidays, you should definitely get this for your Kindle.
This was one the funnest stories I've read in a long time! What I love most about this story is the incredible humour infused throughout it; it’s filled with great lines like, “See? I’m not irritating at all. My horse finds me perfectly tolerable.”There's a great sense of humour in this story, which for me was absolutely perfect and I couldn’t get enough of it! It just kept on getting better and better because it has everything in it that I could hope for, including the happy ending I craved. Princes and princesses, a wizard, a dragon, a five-headed troll, pirates, tragedy, romance, true love...the list is endless! Absolutely my kind of story to read!My favourite male character was a scoundrel named Wyeth. He's such an interesting character! Unrelenting and stubborn, he persevered in his one goal. Though I like both protagonists, Saige and Nikaela, and the way it ends for both of them, Saige was my favourite character of all. I love how vulnerable she is, how she tries to have backbone but fails every time and how the (good) men in this story must always come to her aid.With a fun plot filled with tragedy, and romance, you’ll want to read this story to the very end. And then read it again!
Really, really good. Like, *really* enjoyable. If I owned it in paperback, would I carry it with me, pulling it out & admiring it for how much I love it? Perhaps not. But I would recommend it to just about anyone. Depending on where you are in your reading journey, I think this story would appeal to just about anyone. Except maybe sour-pusses... but, meh to them.The characters are gorgeous, the adventure swashbuckling, the writing excellent. On a technical level, as well as artistic & emotional heart, this is delightfully awesome.Update: I've bumped up my rating because, for what it is (a romantic comedy), this is excellent stuff... A little bit "A Midsummer Night's Dream"-y... A delightful read.
It's probably written for a younger audience than me. I found it a refreshingly silly romance. A little too slapstick at times, but entertaining all the same :)
