    I confess that I don't know enough about arabic culture and I thought this would be a good read to expand my knowledge. Let's start with the names. Malik is to be the king of Sumaira after his brother went missing, or should I say into hiding? He didn't want to take responsibility for his country as he grow up to and just ran away and left everything to his younger brother. Oh well, it happens. What I looked was the names. According to google and wikipedia, Sumaira Malik is a woman who is a Paki I confess that I don't know enough about arabic culture and I thought this would be a good read to expand my knowledge. Let's start with the names. Malik is to be the king of Sumaira after his brother went missing, or should I say into hiding? He didn't want to take responsibility for his country as he grow up to and just ran away and left everything to his younger brother. Oh well, it happens. What I looked was the names. According to google and wikipedia, Sumaira Malik is a woman who is a Pakistani politician and former member of National Assembly of Pakistan whose father's name is Malik AllahYar Khan. So maybe the author based the book in an awesome strong woman? Coincidence or not, I don't know if the politician is awesome btw, I'm just assuming here. So yes, I expected something from this book having some girl power. Also, we have the main character, Sophie who spent a long time of her life caring for her mom who had cancer while working with IT. After her mom died, she started as a waiter and wanted to travel the world. Until the future king found her and asked her to work for him. As a woman working in the IT field, my expectations were high. And how my job is treated didn't quite make me happy. "Systems analysis, wife analysis. Same thing." Sophie's main job as an analyst was to create presentations and find Malek a wife because, believe it or not, nobody else in his country could do this. I'm sorry but I will only list a few things that is in an analyst's profile after a 2min search on google: - Examine existing IT systems and business models; - Analyse systems requirements; - Undertake product development; - Implement, configure and test feasible solutions; - Understanding software development lifecycle; - Drawing up, supervising and documenting testing schedules for complete systems; - ... Yeah, I just felt like when I just finished a 5 year university course and somebody just turned to me like "Cool, you work with IT! Can you hack into my old facebook account? I forgot the password and never got into it again". This was not the only problem that I faced when trying to relate to Sophie. Sometimes she was just too forced into a dumb woman's role that bordered ignorant to turned into a damsel in distress. It was just too much for me. “And don’t forget, when someone introduces someone to you, you must look down. It’s very bad form to look eye-to-eye with someone.” “But that’s contrary to the way I was brought up,” Sophie protested. Raisa adjusted the strap of Sophie’s new evening gown. “You are not in your country, now, Miss Sophie. You are in Sumaira.” Also, the relationship between the main characters were kinda lacking. I couldn't feel the chemistry and felt like they were robots that just had to be attracted to each other. "How could he dismiss her like that from his life, after what they’d experienced the previous night?" Anyway, maybe my opinion is not a popular one but this book just wasn`t for me.

    Not bad... You know how the media shows us that a couple has gotten together and even though you're like um, ok, who cares, the media still throws the couple in your face as if it's trying to get you to get invested in the couple? This is how I felt the entire beginning of this book...it was like the author was trying to create this sizzle that just never...well, sizzled.

You know how the media shows us that a couple has gotten together and even though you're like um, ok, who cares, the media still throws the couple in your face as if it's trying to get you to get invested in the couple? This is how I felt the entire beginning of this book...it was like the author was trying to create this sizzle that just never...well, sizzled. This story was about a woman who gained a sort of freedom after she no longer had responsibilities towards her sick mother and ends up helping this prince from the Middle East out w his IT issues. He likes her so much that he basically Christian Gray's her into working for him (not the sexy part but the I'm rich bish so imma stronghold you part) And as you can probably guess, they are attracted to and fall for each other. The problem is, though, that the writing wasnt really descriptive enough for me to get invested in this couple. I didn't really get that hot for each other vibe. It was more like nm shes mad awkward and he always looks angry about something but hey, they're into each other. Like...how? How did we get here? There were also emotional moments that could have been expounded upon, but like the love in the story, the emotions kinda sizzled to nothing. There was so much more I was hoping for regarding her mother, regarding the fact that she was falling for someone when shes never fallen for anyone before, her fear being surrounded by all the men...there were so many moments for this to be an emotion inducing piece, but it just never went past the surface. There were also clunky and odd descriptions..."Her heart thudded uncomfortably" 👀 did she have heart arrhythmia??? What is happening here??? "...Sophie could see him like she’d never seen him before." THE CHARACTERS MET TWO DAYS PRIOR...LIKE......WHAT???? The "funny" parts fell flat. Actually, the whole thing fell flat. It never ever got...good. Not to mention all the ginormous amount of big and archaic words the author used. I am such a word nerd, but this is a contemporary rom com, not some prolific literary text; STAWP IT. I get the author wanted to flex their word knowledge, but relax - it comes off more pretentious than anything else. Sigh. Overall, the book wasn't terrible. It picked up a little bit after the midway point but prior to that, it was difficult to hold my attention. Not sure I'd read the others if they're not free...but like I said, this book wasn't bad.

    Interesting Twists This is the first book I have read from this author. I enjoyed the book overall. I thought that it was a good storyline and was interesting. Malek has to become king because his father has passed away and his brother, the one who was supposed to be king, has disappeared. Or so they make it seem as Malek knows where his brother is, he just won't come home. Malek has a foe in his mother who believes she should rule the country. All of the rest of the rulers are men and I feel the Interesting Twists This is the first book I have read from this author. I enjoyed the book overall.

All of the rest of the rulers are men and I feel the author played on the fact a little about the Middle Eastern culture and women wanting power but not really getting it. Malek finds Sophie when his staff, mostly from his dad's time of ruling, seem to be incompetent of finding a presentation he needs. Sophie is able to find it which causes Malek to propose that she work for him. Sophie has decided to be a rolling stone and not get attached/move around often after she has spent the last 6 years caring for her I'll mother. If she accepts Malek's offer she can travel a little and it is only for 6 months. From there thr story begins and it's quite a time between the two. I liked the ending as it seemed to work out for everyone. I may pick up the next book in the series.

    This short novella is gold. It does remind one of a typical Cinderella story in the traditional sense. So there are no surprises. But there's nothing wrong with a little tried and true.

The first time for me, in a string of bad books lately. So why the four stars? For one, I resented the heroine forcing the crowned prince to make up with his mother simply because hers had died. She comes off as preachy on more than one occasion. Like she has a moral superiority on everything. Also, if you think too hard on it there are also some holes in this fairytale dream. The Crown Prince comes from an oppressive society and no matter how sweet he is there is just no imagining that the heroine would want to be apart of it. Heck, Duchess Meghan was struggling in England, and that's real life. No way Sophie can handle Samaria. And I say all that, still recommending the story for entertainment purposes only. Don't expect anything new and leave the preconceived notions behind. For some good old school romance.

    It was a mixed bag, in some ways predictable but not totally. Sophie was a person written as someone of really good character. It was interesting how she got drawn into Prince Malek's orbit. There is a fair amount of chaos in his "camp" because he is suddenly thrust into a role he hasn't been raised to take over. But I have to give him credit for trying his best to help his country and his people. The attraction develops over time as the friendship and trust does too.

    Not terrible...2.5 stars This was ok. I found it to be boring. I couldn't figure out if the h was supposed to be a timid fragile flower, or a string willed IT analyst. I read the words describing the attraction between Malek and Sophie, but I didn't get any sense of chemistry. I will admit I did skip a couple of chapters because I couldn't take it anymore. I did read the majority of the book and then went to the last chapter and the epilogue. I don't feel like I missed anything. Not terrible...2.5 stars This was ok. I found it to be boring.

    Sweet romance I enjoyed this story. I liked Sheikh Malak who is soon to be the King of his Mid East country. I loved Sophie who's an English girl traveling through Paris. Sophie has had a very sad life the last six years but is now free to see the world. Except when Malak needs help and Sophie steps in, love blooms. Nice story.

    A nice easy read A very sweet story of a secluded intelligent girl looking to start life again after caring for her mother finding odd jobs neither here or there who finds a unaware future husband. This story also has a slight tear jerker in the middle with the memory of loosing her mother.. as I said a nice sweet read

    Great start then it lost momentum. I liked the characters Malik and Sophy, but the plot was super ridiculous. The king needs to pretend he has a mistress that he can’t marry, so the people will accept him better? This was seriously daft. I have read much better sheikh books, but this was a rather entertaining read and I quite enjoyed it - mainly because of the 2 main characters.

    Not as good as it sounded It sounded like it would be a fun read, but really, it was kind of bland. I found that the story jumped from half idea to half idea without them making sense. It was an easy read, but not very entertaining.

    Great Story A compelling heroine, an enigmatic hero with a dysfunctional family create a great story. Set in an imaginary Middle Eastern kingdom, the palaces and desert are wonderful to envision. Buying Book two now.

    This is your typical story line from this genre. Fairly predictable, usually the same story, just written in someone else's words. Good quick read though. Flows well, has a few more books after it that I may circle back to. This is your typical story line from this genre. Fairly predictable, usually the same story, just written in someone else's words.
