Opposites Attract Sizzled Tag


From acclaimed author Alyssa Cole comes the tale of a city Cinderella

and her Prince Charming in disguise . . .

Between grad school and multiple jobs, Naledi Smith doesn’t have time for fairy tales…or patience for the constant e-mails claiming she’s betrothed to an African prince. Sure. Right. Delete! As a former foster kid, she’s learned that the only things she can depend on are herself and the scientific method, and a silly e-mail won’t convince her otherwise.
Prince Thabiso is the sole heir to the throne of Thesolo, shouldering the hopes of his parents and his people. At the top of their list? His marriage. Ever dutiful, he tracks down his missing betrothed. When Naledi mistakes the prince for a pauper, Thabiso can’t resist the chance to experience life—and love—without the burden of his crown.
The chemistry between them is instant and irresistible, and flirty friendship quickly evolves into passionate nights. But when the truth is revealed, can a princess in theory become a princess ever after?

This was such a refreshing, fun story dealing with royalty, secrets, long lost family, finding one’s true place and much more. I was excited to read this story cause a royal stories are one of my fav stories to read.

To start off, the world building was on point for me. I really enjoyed getting to know the hero and heroine’s country with all of it’s rich and prosperous history. My only issue with it was that I wanted more of it, which isn’t really an issue at all. Just me being greedy, wanting more of a great things : )

The main characters were great. The heroine was down to earth, real, patient with sass and smarts that made it so easy to root for her. And the hero was great with his strength and vulnerability at being willing to open his eyes to new things, even being the prince with all of this power and influence it was great to see him take on normal, real world situations while being awkwardly cute.

The couple had such an instant connection, but what made it really work was that it took time for them to really establish a relationship. And when their romance did grow to more they defiantly sizzled hot with their connection. The issues that they faced were multifaceted which I really liked with mysteries that kept me curious. Though I had an issue with how quickly one of the issues were resolved but it was minor and didn’t really effect my overall enjoyment.

Overall I enjoyed reading A Princess In Theory by Alyssa Cole, it took me on a wild ride with relatable characters, multifaceted issues, sizzling romance and a richly diverse world-building and culture that warmed my heart.
