How (Not) to Date a Prince by Zoe May


Surely fairy tales don’t happen in real life?

After being jilted at the altar, high-flying journalist Sam doesn’t believe in love any more – and she certainly doesn’t believe in fairy tales! So, when she’s asked to cover the Royal Wedding, it’s the last thing she wants to do.

And when she crashes into a ridiculously handsome stranger, Anders, things go from bad to worse. But as the big day draws closer, Sam finds herself being swept up in the excitement – as well as swept off her feet by Anders!

But there’s something that Anders is hiding from her – and when he finally reveals his secret, might Sam just have the happy-ever-after she never thought she wanted…?


For some reason, the title didn't really grab, and it sat in my TBR pile for a while, but when I did start to read it, I had a lovely surprise. Light-hearted, funny, and silly, this novel is a fun read, and I found it especially enjoyable because of all the hype around Harry and Meghan's wedding.

Sam is a likeable character and a bit of a klutz, Anders is gorgeous and sexy, and the whole situation is so obvious to the reader that it is cringey and hilarious at the same time.

Very entertaining.
