    A Princess in Theory was one of my most anticipated reads for 2018, for good reasons. One. It has a fairy tale like premise: a royal prince looking for his long-lost betrothed who happens to have no idea of who he is and thinks he?s just out to scam her. Two. I?ve seen and read cou...

    Didn't like either main character (or any of the characters, for that matter). One was a weird mix of stubborn push-over; other was a stuck up lying asshole who did everything he could to do creepy things (keep touching the female lead, despite Ledi not wanting anything to do with him ...

    DNF. Skimmed and skipped all the way to the end. First of all, what a fantastic cover! It's freaking gorgeous. That's what drew me in. AND then there was that awesome blurb. I've never read anything by Alyssa Cole before; so these 2 things (cover and blurb) made me go out and get th...

    I?m not a romance reader that veers towards royalty romance. A lot of times, they wind up being cheesy to read. But I took one glance at the cover of A Princess In Theory, and I knew I had to read it. This was my first romance novel by Alyssa Cole, and I?m hitting my head against...

    The book fairly screams of 'The Princess Diaries' from the get go- not that it's a bad thing. A Princess in Theory is an absolutely fluffy, escapist fantasy that is so good to unwind. I loved Ledi, extremely busy studying to be an epidemiologist (how many heroines do that!) She's sm...

    A Princess in Theory was an absolutely amazing read with charming characters and an incredibly sexy romance. When Naledi Smith receives scam email after scam email claiming she?s betrothed to an African prince, she admires the sender?s persistence but has no time or patience for...

    I really wish Alyssa Cole's writing worked better for me. The first part of this was really slow going and then I put it down for a while. Once I picked it back up, I finished pretty quickly, but I just wanted to LOVE this. It also felt like 2 or maybe 3 stories in one (view spoiler)[p...

    A Princess in Theory was one of my most anticipated reads for 2018, for good reasons. One. It has a fairy tale like premise: a royal prince looking for his long-lost betrothed who happens to have no idea of who he is and thinks he?s just out to scam her. Two. I?ve seen and read cou...

    Didn't like either main character (or any of the characters, for that matter). One was a weird mix of stubborn push-over; other was a stuck up lying asshole who did everything he could to do creepy things (keep touching the female lead, despite Ledi not wanting anything to do with him ...

    I really wish Alyssa Cole's writing worked better for me. The first part of this was really slow going and then I put it down for a while. Once I picked it back up, I finished pretty quickly, but I just wanted to LOVE this. It also felt like 2 or maybe 3 stories in one (view spoiler)[p...

    Didn't like either main character (or any of the characters, for that matter). One was a weird mix of stubborn push-over; other was a stuck up lying asshole who did everything he could to do creepy things (keep touching the female lead, despite Ledi not wanting anything to do with him ...

    Trigger warnings: death of a parent (in the past), car accident (in the past), (view spoiler)[attempted murder (hide spoiler)] I've been anticipating this book for months now. The cover is stunning, the premise is utterly delightful, and it features a woman of colour working in STE...

    *Sobs* DNF @ 31% Not rated. Alyssa Cole writes smart heroines. I could not believe I was going to see an epidemiologist heroine. I also want to read more romances written by authors of color about people of color. So when this wasn't clicking for me, particularly a cinderella story (p...

    A Princess in Theory by Alyssa Cole is the first story in her Reluctant Royals series. It?s a sexy contemporary romance about a hard working scientist heroine and a prince looking for his dream girl. When Naledi Smith?s inbox keeps getting emails from an ?African Prince lookin...

    Review also on my blog ? Twitter ? Bookstagram Rep: black mc's Content warnings: explicit sexual content, parent deaths  I received an arc from the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review. A Princess in Theory follows Naledi, known as Ledi. She is a g...

    4+ stars ? I thoroughly enjoyed reading A Princess in Theory. A modern fairytale, it has engaging major characters in Naledi and Thabiso and a fascinating storyline in that of a (financially) struggling graduate student and her Prince Charming. Their chemistry is electric and you...

    I lurved it. Smart, streetwise heroine (who is in school for infectious disease epidemiology, natch, high-five) and a literal Prince who gets his life turned upside down when he determines she?s his long-lost fiancé. Some great commentary about colonialism, big-government jacking ar...

    Okay so this is a solid 3.5 because like 75-80% of this book is totally delicious and smart and utterly delightful and 15% is questionably silly and about 5% is outright poor writing. The good: The hook for this contemporary romance is brilliant. Naledi Smith is our heroine. She...

    DNF. Skimmed and skipped all the way to the end. First of all, what a fantastic cover! It's freaking gorgeous. That's what drew me in. AND then there was that awesome blurb. I've never read anything by Alyssa Cole before; so these 2 things (cover and blurb) made me go out and get th...

    I wish the hero fessed up earlier, but overall A Princess in Theory is a delight from start to finish. ...

    Alyssa puts the bar high for the next contemporary royalty romance novels I read. A PRINCESS IN THEORY was fun, entertaining, sweet and romantic with a side of sexy. It's about a scientist that suddenly gets emails from a prince claiming she is his fiancee. There is mistaken identity, ...

    I?m not a romance reader that veers towards royalty romance. A lot of times, they wind up being cheesy to read. But I took one glance at the cover of A Princess In Theory, and I knew I had to read it. This was my first romance novel by Alyssa Cole, and I?m hitting my head against...

    This was my first book by Alyssa Cole, but I?m definitely coming back for more! (Plus omgg, that cover is absolutely gorgeous.) A Princess in Theory is an AMAZING royal read that I adored from start to finish. Usually I?m not a fan of contemporary romances with royalty, but this on...

    The book fairly screams of 'The Princess Diaries' from the get go- not that it's a bad thing. A Princess in Theory is an absolutely fluffy, escapist fantasy that is so good to unwind. I loved Ledi, extremely busy studying to be an epidemiologist (how many heroines do that!) She's sm...

    Cute and enjoyable! ...

    A Princess in Theory was an absolutely amazing read with charming characters and an incredibly sexy romance. When Naledi Smith receives scam email after scam email claiming she?s betrothed to an African prince, she admires the sender?s persistence but has no time or patience for...

    I really wish Alyssa Cole's writing worked better for me. The first part of this was really slow going and then I put it down for a while. Once I picked it back up, I finished pretty quickly, but I just wanted to LOVE this. It also felt like 2 or maybe 3 stories in one (view spoiler)[p...

    This is the royal romance book I always wanted to read! Finally! I was so tired of reading about white princes from random European principalities with basically British royal culture. Then we get this wonderful book. FINALLY. I'm incandescently happy with this book. Plus I've ...

    Well written and entertaining, but a little fluffy for my taste. And as a PhD in microbiology, you know it's bad when even I say there were too many science references. Not that they weren't really clever science references, because they were?Naledi's use of phospholipid bilayers to ...

    Funny, romantic and with an independent and strong female MC. I really enjoyed this, but wish that there was a little less of 'I saw that coming@ on it Full review at http://tartsweet.com/ ...

    I didn't expect to love this book as much as I did. I loved every single thing about it, and that doesn't happen often for me. It's one of those books that you finish, and then hug close to your chest because you just love it THAT MUCH. Wow. ...
