    I have mixed feelings about this one. It's looking like Alyssa Cole is going to be a hit or miss author for me. I didn't fully enjoy An Extraordinary Union for the same reasons I didn't fully enjoy this one, I think, but I loved A Hope Divided. So I will keep reading her stuff and just...

    I loved it. I loved it. That is all. And this is coming from someone who doesn?t read a lot of contemporary or romance. I loved their dynamic with each other and the real ness of their relationship. The steamy scenes were perfect!! I will be doing a full review of this book so stay t...

    Cute "rags to riches" love story, with some steamy scenes. This is not a clean read. The "f" word is used quite a lot, indicating that royalty needs to have it's mouth washed out with soap just like us commoners. The h also drops the "f" word quite a bit, which is sad, as she is a ...

    What a fantastic book! Cole's premise is pretty out there and silly: a young woman in the US is getting those "you are betrothed to an African prince and only need to send us your credit card details to seal the deal" emails and they turn out to be actually true! But she totally makes ...

    4.5 stars This was such a great read! I don't typically feel drawn to books about royalty and bachelor princes but from the moment I saw this cover and heard that the heroine was a science nerd, I knew I had to check it out. I don't really have much else to say since it's 2 am a...

    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, ...

    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...

    I have mixed feelings about this one. It's looking like Alyssa Cole is going to be a hit or miss author for me. I didn't fully enjoy An Extraordinary Union for the same reasons I didn't fully enjoy this one, I think, but I loved A Hope Divided. So I will keep reading her stuff and just...

    Cute "rags to riches" love story, with some steamy scenes. This is not a clean read. The "f" word is used quite a lot, indicating that royalty needs to have it's mouth washed out with soap just like us commoners. The h also drops the "f" word quite a bit, which is sad, as she is a ...

    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...

    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...

    Sweet as can be and refreshingly current. The book is honest about life for young Black women (and to a lesser extent all women) in male dominated fields and the attack on science currently underway. It also touches on the costs of growing up in the foster system. It is honest about li...

    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...

    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...

    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 loved it. I loved it. That is all. And this is coming from someone who doesn?t read a lot of contemporary or romance. I loved their dynamic with each other and the real ness of their relationship. The steamy scenes were perfect!! I will be doing a full review of this book so stay t...

    Cute "rags to riches" love story, with some steamy scenes. This is not a clean read. The "f" word is used quite a lot, indicating that royalty needs to have it's mouth washed out with soap just like us commoners. The h also drops the "f" word quite a bit, which is sad, as she is a ...

    What a fantastic book! Cole's premise is pretty out there and silly: a young woman in the US is getting those "you are betrothed to an African prince and only need to send us your credit card details to seal the deal" emails and they turn out to be actually true! But she totally makes ...

    Good Lord, the cover is magnificent. The premise and opening are fantastic?Ledi?s struggle to keep afloat, the double whammy of being a black woman in STEM, constantly put down or pushed around by men but called mouthy or angry if she stands up for herself, the endless strain of tr...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    I loved it. I loved it. That is all. And this is coming from someone who doesn?t read a lot of contemporary or romance. I loved their dynamic with each other and the real ness of their relationship. The steamy scenes were perfect!! I will be doing a full review of this book so stay t...

    Cute "rags to riches" love story, with some steamy scenes. This is not a clean read. The "f" word is used quite a lot, indicating that royalty needs to have it's mouth washed out with soap just like us commoners. The h also drops the "f" word quite a bit, which is sad, as she is a ...

    What a fantastic book! Cole's premise is pretty out there and silly: a young woman in the US is getting those "you are betrothed to an African prince and only need to send us your credit card details to seal the deal" emails and they turn out to be actually true! But she totally makes ...

    4.5 stars This was such a great read! I don't typically feel drawn to books about royalty and bachelor princes but from the moment I saw this cover and heard that the heroine was a science nerd, I knew I had to check it out. I don't really have much else to say since it's 2 am a...

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

    I didn't expect to like this as much as I did! The narrative was so in line with the way my mind works that I was right there with Ledi, practically wearing home girl's shoes the entire way. And Thabiso is such a cinnamon roll, gah! Such a cute story with themes of abandonment, then...
