No. of Pages: 369
Date of Publication: 12 July, 2022
My Rating: 4.5 Stars
It’s the cover first that captures my attention, that same cover (and subsequent movie) I remember seeing at our town’s local movie theater when I wasn’t yet old enough to drive. The characters are in the same pose as on that 1990 movie poster and wow, what a genius idea on the part of Amalie Howard! Because this is the book I didn’t know I needed to read. And it’s the beginning of a brand new series to boot 😍
By 5% of the way in I have a smile on my face… I am adoring this book so far. The Pretty Woman / Pygmalion aspects of this story are definitely there and is it just me who feels like watching 90’s rom-coms now?
100% finished and I’m already desperate for book two in this brand new series that I can’t wait to read more of! This was an utterly terrific start to a new series.
This title was a joy to read. Recommended for those who like/love the following tropes
