Overview

Sophia Andreou has always been the “good daughter” who tried to keep her domineering father happy. She followed the rules and did everything that was asked of her. But this time, her father is asking too much. The family company is crumbling, and her father has arranged a marriage to a Greek billionaire who can save their property business. What?! Umm no thank you. If Cinderella can dress up to win a prince, surely Sophia can do the opposite and ditch hers...

Dion Kourakis has come a long way from being an orphan with only a single friend to his name. Now he runs a billion-dollar investment company and has the respect of everyone in Europe. His charming personality covers a lot of emotional scars, including his desire to make his mentor proud. Dion doesn’t exactly want a bride to go along with his next business deal, and he plans on letting the lass down gently when they meet...

Only, his future bride has turned out to be nothing like what he thought she’d be. She’s quirky and has a habit of turning up to social events in strange outfits. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what she’s up to, but the harder she tries to convince him she’d be an awful wife, the more he wants to convince her they’d be perfect together.

How do you get out of an arranged marriage when your father is the actual worst? Be the exact opposite of everything the potential groom would want. Sophia's antics were absolutely hilarious. I could picture all of her crazy outfits and laughed out loud to her unbelievable schemes. I loved how Dion took all her crazy in stride and did his best to roll with it. These two kept me wanting to read more to see what would happen next. I missed the first book in this series but I'm adding it to my TBR!!

This was an entertaining, quick, fun read. It is nicely done with interesting well developed characters, a touch of humor, a smidge of sass, and a fun quickly developing storyline. While slightly predictable these characters brought a fresh feel to the story. Sophia doesn't seem the type to go along with an arranged relationship but she played the part well. Mostly! Dion wants nothing to do with this plan until he meets Sophia and sees the depths she will go to in order to chase him off. Watching her antics are completely entertaining and Dion finds himself wrapped up in her shenanigans. Her spirit and determination win his heart and then he's determined to win hers. Don't miss their story, I highly recommend this entertaining read.

Another winner from Stefanie! This book has it all, topped perfectly with a handsome Greek businessman! Sophia has spent her life doing her father's bidding. He's cruel, manipulative and holds her mother's well being over Sophie's head as a means of controlling her. Especially now since his latest business deal includes Sophie as part of the package. He needs to bail on his business which is failing miserably and he plays right into the hands of Dion who wants the company for his own reasons as we find out as the book unfolds. Sophie is resigned to go to Corfu, but her idea is to make herself as unappealing and ridiculous as possible so Dion won't want to marry her, all the while trying to keep things straight so the deal goes through. The antics are hysterical and I know I'll never look at a Taxidermist the same way again! No fox given! Dion is at first a bit taken aback when he sees her, this is not the woman in photos... this is.. you have to read the book. Dion does see through her disguises and attempts to cover up who she is and she slowly lets him into her life and he gets a glimpse of what her father is really like. Dion's backstory unfolds as well as well as his relationship with the man, Elias who was his mentor as well as a father figure. Elias is in failing health and his days are numbered. Dion decides to seduce Sophie to get her to open up and show herself fully and off to Paris they go! Let the games begin! The two grow closer and his self talk was quite telling. Things are spinning along nicely for the two when they return to Corfu. That is until things fail with Elias and Dion shuts down. What a gem this is and a must read. Stefanie never disappoints and she's written yet another winner. It's a five star read all the way plus extra sparkles for the epilogue!!

Holy anti-commitment Greek lonely billionaires, Batman! Ms. London has done it again. I freaking love this book, it was fun, sweet and had some sexiness to it. I adored Beauty and the Greek Billionaire and I was hoping Nico’s business partner would get his own story, and How to Lose a Fiancé totally did it justice. Dion has been set on the path of revenge for as long as he can remember. Now with victory on the tip of his fingers he will do anything to achieve it, even if that means marrying some girl he’s never met. Sophia is done being under the thumb of her dictatorial father, but she can’t see a way out of the latest mess he’s driven into without putting her mother’s health at risk. Marry some Greek suit who’s exactly like daddy dearest? Not a chance. She’ll do anything in her power to make Dion curse the day he accepted her hand in marriage as part of a business deal. Armed with a plan and the conviction to see it through, she sets on driving Dion crazy enough to renege on the deal. She just hadn’t anticipated the sexy Greek guy to out matching her in all her ploys. Watching Dion and Sophia butt heads was hilarious. She came up with the most outrageous schemes only to have Dion take them in stride. I absolutely loved their chemistry and dynamics and how they were exactly what the other one needed to grow as a person. I wish we’d gotten to see a bit more of Marianna and Nico and their growing family and that the epilogue was a bit more centered in Sophia and Dion’s HEA, but this camper was really happy with what she got. Funny, with some angst, lots of feelings and really hot chemistry How to Lose a Fiancé was a fabulous read that had me enchanted from start to finish. I can’t wait to see what Ms. London will have for us next! *I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book*

Smart, seductive, and entertaining! How to Lose a Fiancé is a hilarious, quick, steamy tale that takes us into the life of the stubborn, creative, Sophia Andreous as she endeavours to do whatever it takes to have the sexy, hardworking, billionaire Dion revoke the business deal that includes their arranged marriage. The writing is whimsical and light. The characters are quirky, supportive, and passionate. And the plot is a laugh-out-loud funny blend of familial obligation, life, love, friendship, introspection, romance, awkward moments, embarrassing situations, and outrageous hijinks. Overall, How to Lose a Fiancé is another sassy, sensual, amusing novel by London that has all the characteristics of a fantastic romcom, including adorable characters, a witty storyline, and the requisite swoon-worthy, happy-ever-after ending.

I really enjoyed this book. I was chuckling and smiling the whole time I was reading it. The antics that Sophia pulled to convince Dion he did not want to go through with the arranged marriage were hilarious. The clown pants were a hoot but what killed me was the taxidermy namely Baroness Sasha Foxington III. Even with the crazy clothes that Sophia wore there was just something about her that drew Dion to her. He couldn’t figure it out because the kind of woman she was portraying was definitely not someone he would want to be with. Once he figured it out and Sophia was able to be herself they both had trouble fighting their attraction to each other even though neither of them wanted the arranged marriage. They spent a week in Paris to see if Dion could convince Sophia to go along with the arranged marriage and she was able to offer up “demands” that she wanted were she to go along with it. I loved that BSF became an inside private joke for them and that she popped up throughout. It showed that Dion and Sophia were connecting in more than a physical way. Of course not everything is easy and when Dion had to deal with the death of someone close to him he pushed Sophia away in the process. Luckily Dion comes to the realization that he did in fact fall in love with Sophia and needed to fix what he ruined between them. I loved these two together from the beginning. There was just something about the chemistry between them that worked even when they didn’t want to work.

Loved this book! I can't say enough good things about it - I was thoroughly absorbed in the story and, in the first part of the book, found myself laughing out loud frequently. Add it what might have been my favorite character ever, the Baroness Sasha Foxington, you have a wonderful novel. Dion was perfect as the somewhat tortured fiance, while Sophia was charming - and unique - unwilling fiance. Their relationship was entertaining as it developed. Sophia was funny as she tried to get out of the looming marriage Her various attempts had me laughing out loud often....to the point where my husband was wondering what I was reading and looking at me funny.... However, even with all that, this is a delightful contemporary romance that fans of the genre will love. This one is a must read! Make sure you pre-order this one as it's too good to be missed. The author is on my must read authors' list and, if you enjoy the genre, should probably be on yours as well
