A struggling antiques collector finds herself falling in love with a millionaire playboy; but can she ever be a part of his world?
Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.
While her friends have broken free of their insecurities, Ariel Waters is struggling to come out of her shell. Her ex-husband took away her voice and her self-confidence, and Ariel is drowning under a sea of debt to afford the alimony she has to pay him. She refuses to ever fall for a man’s charms again, and is determined to make her own way.
When her house and her beloved antiques are taken by the bank after too many missed payments, Ariel finds herself adrift until the infuriatingly charming Eric Sailor comes to her rescue. Although she can’t stand the millionaire playboy, Eric’s kindness and unconditional support reveal hidden depths and a love that Ariel never imagined she could find.
But there are outside influences who will stop at nothing to keep them apart; can Ariel and Eric weather the storm and find a way to be together?
Have you ever started a series and just known you could count on it to make you smile and laugh?! When I was looking for rom-com recommendations, a book buddy suggested The Naughty Princess Club. I went for it and haven’t looked back since!
Kiss the Girl was exactly the book I had hoped for from this series of comical, sexy standalones with a twist on fairytales. Tara Sivec won me over quickly in the first book, and now, she has a fan! I love her easy going style, and her humor is totally natural.
This is a contemporary romance that has touches of The Little Mermaid. That’s one of the things I enjoy about this series — seeing how the plot parallels that of the fairytales that inspire them. I adore romantic comedies and fairytales, so this is truly “my cup of tea.”
I never quite got enough of Ariel in the first two books of The Naughty Princess Club; she’s always been my favorite of the “princesses.” I love how feisty and quirky she is! She is smart and fierce, despite a less-than-ideal situation.
Not going to lie, I’m a massive sucker for a good hate-to-love romance, and that’s exactly what we got here! Gah Eric is just a doll, even though he annoys Ariel. Like any trope, it needs to be done right, and Sivec does this justice!
Overall, I would absolutely recommend Kiss the Girl (and the rest of The Naughty Princess Club series)! Fans of contemporary romance, rom-coms, and retellings will especially love this one!
“‘Can I kiss the girl now?’ he whispers. ‘You’re so cheesy. And no, you can’t kiss me. I’m in charge here. I’ll kiss you.'”
