The old adage "Money doesn't buy happiness" definitely applies to former socialite Sydney Ross. After circumstances lead to her being disowned by her politically motivated parents, she sets out alone to take responsibility for her choices . She finds a safe place to land with her distant, distant relative and aspiring author Stephen as she struggles to get on with her future without the wealth and privilege she's always known. Her past life is not quite done with her, however, and comes back to haunt her in a series of terrifying and tragic occurrences that make her realize that her former, gilded life was hiding secrets that put her life in danger.
I was pleasantly surprised by Sydney. It would be only too easy to make her the stereotypical, entitled rich girl who transforms into someone you could possibly be persuaded to like at the end. Instead, from the beginning, Sydney shows kindness, resolve, forgiveness and a strength of character that made her refreshing and sympathetic heroine.
I don't want to give anything crucial away so readers can be completely surprised, but Princess is twisty-turny, fast-paced read full of secrets, tragedy, intrigue, betrayal and romance that will have you holding your breath until the very last page.
Cole states that this book is intended as a cross-over for older teens to women and I would agree with that as it contains themes and situations that may not be appropriate for some teens.
4.5/5 stars....but I rounded up :)

Kept me up all night
I started reading "Princess" last night a little past midnight (big mistake). Thankfully my iPad ran out of juice around 3:00 am so I was forced to quit reading long enough to remember that I had to work today. I can't wait to get back to it!

A Must Read
This is a really good book. So many twists and turns, you can't stop reading. Don't let the title or cover fool you! This story will make a great movie. Would read again in the future.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Not What I Expected- but better
I read (and loved) this author's first work, Every Last Kiss, which was a paranormal romance. This book certainly is not... but what this book IS, is awesome. Oh my. I can't even describe how involved I was in the plot. I couldn't put it down. Ms. Cole managed so many twists and turns that I had no clue what was going to happen next. I loved it and highly, highly recommend it.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
