The Love List & Part-Time Princess {Thursday Night Writes}

Hey y'all,

It's Thursday, and my last day of work for the week, so before I go and spend the evening reading since I really don't have a bedtime I thought I would share some of my recent reads. I also went to the library yesterday so I'm fully stocked for the long weekend.

Falling in love is just not on Nora King’s To Do List…
Neither is accidentally super-gluing her shoe to her hand right before the biggest presentation of her life!
With all the hard work she’d put into securing the family business after her father’s death, Nora has no choice but to accept help from a knight in shining armor.
Disaster relief worker Ethan Love is still haunted by his last deployment, and desperate for distraction. He’s in town to ask Nora for a major favor, and swooping in to save her presentation is a sure way to get her on side.
As Ethan sticks around and helps Nora through her grief, her barriers tumble down…but will she dare to swap her To Do lists for a How to Fall in Love list?

 A cute short read, this book was a bit predictable but essentially, Nora is attempting to salvage her family's company after the loss of her father but she is so stressed she accidentally super glues her shoe right before the big presentation. Well, in walks her ex-brother-in-law to save the day. It was a good fun read but not one of my favorites or something I would recall when recommending books to a friend.

Lucy Trabbicio’s a down-on-her-luck, young, American, former biker-bar cocktail waitress desperate to find a job. Lady Elizabeth Billingsley hires Lucy to travel to Fredonia, the tiny jewel of a country in the Alps, for ten days ‘tops’ to impersonate her.
Say what? How the heck is that going to happen?
In the mother of all makeovers, Elizabeth’s people teach Lucy how to dress, walk, talk, eat, be coiffed and even get naked like a European Lady.
The goal?
To keep Crown Prince Cristoph Timmel interested in Elizabeth until she finishes her unexpected, pressing personal business in the States.
But fate intervenes… Lucy meets and is wildly attracted to sexy, bad-boy Nick on the oh-so-long flights to Fredonia. Unfortunately for Lucy—Nick and Elizabeth have a hot sexual history, which Nick wants to immediately resume.
Prince Cristoph proposes marriage. What's an imposter girl to do? Elizabeth insists that she’ll make it back home in time for the wedding. Lucy accepts Cristoph’s proposal and is on the fast track to becoming a Princess but continues to fall for the wrong Prince of Fredonia—Nick. When another tiny glitch arises—someone’s trying to kill her.
The only folks helping Lucy are her wild, party hard, take-no-prisoners Ladies-in-Waiting.
When the real Lady Elizabeth decides she’s not marrying Cristoph and never returning to Fredonia, Lucy’s faced with an uncomfortable decision—continue her deception, marry the prince she’s not in love with and live a dream life albeit without Nick, her dream guy? Or tell the truth and return to poverty and oblivion?

I thought this was such a quick read and since it is marked as the first in a series I am interested to know where the next book ventures. Essentially, Lucy due to circumstances loses her job and when looking through the paper finds a listing for a part-time assistant position. Well, it's not an assistant position as it is for Lucy to fill in for Lady Elizabeth Billingsley as she deals with family business. Lucy takes a crash course in how to be a lady and luckily has some pretty amazing ladies in waiting when she lands in the small country of Fredonia. This was a fun, quick read and I laughed on more than one occasion.
