Once Upon A Prince: A Review

Once Upon A Prince By Rachel Hauck
Once Upon a Prince, the first novel in the Royal Wedding series by bestselling author Rachel Hauck, treats you to a modern-day fairy tale.
Susanna Truitt never dreamed of a great romance or being treated like a princess---just to marry the man she has loved for twelve years. But life isn’t going according to plan. When her high-school-sweetheart-turned-Marine-officer breaks up instead of proposing, Susanna scrambles to rebuild her life.
The last thing Prince Nathaniel expects to find on his American holiday to St. Simon’s Island is the queen of his heart. A prince has duties, and his family’s tense political situation has chosen his bride for him. When Prince Nathaniel comes to Susanna’s aid under the fabled Lover’s Oak, he is blindsided by love.
Their lives are worlds apart. He’s a royal prince. She’s an ordinary girl. But everything changes when Susanna receives an invitation to Nathaniel’s coronation.
I do not think I can really tell you how disappointed I was with the book. Reading the description just made it sound amazing. However, the moment I opened the book the main characters Nate and Susanna were whining and complaining. It got on my nerves more then I could say.

There was list of how this just did not fit for me. Nevertheless, I will not do that. When I got this, I thought of The Prince And I movie. The similarities are a prince hiding in broad day light. That idea, I thought was just so exciting. In addition, Nate was cute and fun, but did not seem proper enough.

I am sorry I am venting. Susanna’s family I would say was the best part. All though it had its rough spots through out the whole book. But it did get better and better and the ending was the best part.   


I was given this book for my review from booksneeze. (www.booksneeze.com)
