How (Not) To Date A Prince
Surely fairy tales don’t happen in real life?
After being jilted at the altar, high-flying journalist Sam doesn’t believe in love any more – and she certainly doesn’t believe in fairy tales! So, when she’s asked to cover the Royal Wedding, it’s the last thing she wants to do.
And when she crashes into a ridiculously handsome stranger, Anders, things go from bad to worse. But as the big day draws closer, Sam finds herself being swept up in the excitement – as well as swept off her feet by Anders!
But there’s something that Anders is hiding from her – and when he finally reveals his secret, might Sam just have the happy-ever-after she never thought she wanted…?
Author Bio –
Zoe May lives in Oxford and writes romantic comedies. Zoe has dreamt of being a novelist since she was a teenager. She spent her twenties living in London, where she worked in journalism and copywriting before writing her debut novel, Perfect Match. Having experienced the London dating scene first hand, Zoe could not resist writing a novel about dating, since it seems to supply endless amounts of weird and wonderful material!
Perfect Match was one of Apple’s top-selling books of 2018. It was also shortlisted for the Romantic Novelists’ Association’s Joan Hessayon Award, with judges describing it as ‘a laugh out loud look at love and self-discovery – fresh and very funny’.
As well as writing, Zoe enjoys walking her dog, painting and, of course, reading.

I loved, loved this book. This was my second book that I’ve read by Zoe and when I’ve gotten an e-mail with the question do I want to review it, I agreed right away. I love Zoe’s writing and the story line seemed interesting. I’m really happy that I accepted the blog tour spot.
This book is about UK journalist getting together with the Prince of Norway (second in the throne). Funnily enough, I just came back from my holidays in Norway few weeks ago and I loved it there so reading this book was just amazing. It added a bit of something extra to the book.
Aside from my Norway trip, I enjoyed the story a lot. Not only that the story was good but the characters were on point as well. Main character is someone I really enjoyed learning more about. Zoe has made her really great and I just love how passionate she is about her job and how she knows what she wants. But what I found great about her, was her not giving up on love. Even if she had something happen to her in the past that could easily made her give up on it, she still changed. In the beginning, I thought this will be just one more character that will just keep on moaning and whining how there is no one perfect for them but Sam wasn’t like that and I applaud Zoe for making her this way.
Sooo, let me say something that might be funny (or not!). Until the moment we found out that Anders is the 2nd prince, I was 100% sure that he was Isaac. The whole time, I was just waiting for that moment when he will end up being Isaac. And then, baaam! Nope, he is his brother. Well done, Zoe, well done!
If you want a pick me up, have a laugh and enjoy some nice rom-com, this book will be for you. It is just a perfect read for the beach. I can imagine myself sitting with my e-reader and just reading. Maybe it is this rainy weather in Germany that makes me wish for the sun even more. Please, pick this book up if you are ready to get be swept away by a prince.
Thank you Rachel for giving me this opportunity to read and review this book.
