The Prince’s Ex
by Nadene Seiters
Amelia Radley thought she had it all when she met a man in a bar and he ended up being royalty. Their love affair was anything but boring, and yet he dumped her almost exactly a year after asking her out to their first dinner date. While the wound was deep and fresh thirty days after their separation, she picked up the morning paper only to see that the man she thought she loved had already become engaged to another woman.
Her best friend, Tina, suggests the only thing she knows would make her feel better. Amelia should start dating any man she meets that she likes so that she can get over her ex. The idea is ludicrous, and yet Amelia agrees to a date with a man she has never met before. All the while, she considers herself nothing more than the prince’s ex, a woman who could not hold the affections of every woman’s dream.
When she finds love in an unexpected place, it’s challenged by the past and the future looks rocky. Amelia’s insecurities might get in the way of her finding true love, in more ways than one.
This was such an entertaining read.
Amelia didn’t understand why her ex-boyfriend, a prince, broke up with her. What made matters worse, the prince got engaged to another woman one month after their split. Her bestfriend, Tina, hooked her up with some of her former flames to help Amelia forget about her ex. But a date with a dentist named Ryan, who liked getting spanked with a paddle wasn’t the kind of man Amelia was looking for!
Soon she decided to take matters into her own hands and began flirting with the coffee-shop barista, Peter but she bailed on their first lunch because she snagged a date from her former boss Clint, right after she resigned from her work! Yep, she began dating her former boss. But then again, the spark wasn’t there when they shared a kiss.
And then her ex-boyfriend, Prince Simon, came rushing back to her, hoping for reconciliation of some sort. Wow, for someone who had a hard time recovering from a Royal ex-boyfriend, Amelia sure found some interesting guys to date.
I liked how the author included some humor in this love story. Tina was a riot, but I would love to have her as my BFF, too! And that almost one-night stand with the dentist was simply hilarious, I couldn’t stop laughing at the scene! Some minor characters that amused me were the old lady in the coffee shop who was always typing on her laptop, and another older lady who could bend her body while doing yoga!
But of course, the main attraction in the story was Peter & Amelia, who both got family issues, yet somehow clicked amid their differences.
I had a great time reading this. I felt light-hearted and had a smile on my face when I got to the last chapter, it really felt so good. Thanks Nadene Seiters for this beautiful love story 🙂
