How many girls can say their first kiss was with a prince in the British royal family?

I was fourteen and he was sixteen, and yes, it was magical. But that kiss didn't exactly change my life. To tell you the truth, I didn't even think about it-or Nicky Windsor-for the next ten years . . . until fate, in the guise of my grandparents, brought us back together again.

Now everything has spun out of control. I'm ducking reporters and photographers when I try to leave home. My friends act as if I'm someone they don't know anymore. The whole world seems to be watching me, wanting to see some kind of modern Cinderella story.

But trust me, I'm no man's princess. I'm more comfortable in tennis shoes than in a tiara, more likely to rock a bucket than a ball gown, and more liable to fall on my face than to pull off a graceful wave.

The only thing that keeps me from running away and hiding is Nicky. He's all I've ever wanted in a man: hot, hunky and head-over-heels in love with me. I think I feel the same way. I think I want to be with him forever.

But the idea of life with the royal family terrifies me. Even if I have found my one and only, can I handle what comes after our happy ending?

This was a super read and I really enjoyed it. Nicky and Kyra were friends as children and spent the summers together until she turned 14 and him 16 they have not seen each other since. When they meet up years later he is now a prince but they have tons of chemistry and he is determined she will be his princess. I enjoyed this book it was a great read and held my interest all the way through

I found this to be a very enjoyable and refreshing read. The book begins Nick and Kyra's romance. It does feature a HEA for now but their are two future books planned.This cute and fun royal romance is written with unique slant. Kyra doesn't feel she's Princess material and suffers from serious doubts and anxiety about it. I also really liked that it showcased the downside of it all, the lack of privacy, loss of friends, being stalked by the media and having the whole world watching and judging you. At its heart this is a really sweet romance that starts with a kiss when he's sixteen and she's fourteen, then years apart, before the real romance begins when they are reunited. With powerful, realistic emotions, sweet love, drama, humor and passion this is a pleasurable and entertaining read.

I absolutely loved this story!! This is so timely in its royalty romance theme and I absolutely loved Kyra and Nicky. Childhood friends who could have been more...if only. Now 10 years later - they get a second chance, but being in a relationship with a British royal is NOT easy!! Not including the long-distance to the EXTREME!! Tawdra always writes great romance, but you always learn something as well - a phrase, a colloquialism, or in this case - sustainable farming concepts. So this is a green book as well as an anti-princess book. Kyra is rocking the Converse as the cover suggests!! So this one definitely has the steam..."Show me everything. I want to feel all of you--over me and against me and inside me." Oh my!! And some parts made me laugh - "...hugged his torso like a besotted lover." Only Tawdra can use besotted in a non-historical romance. Kyra may not have been pining since that innocent teenage kiss so long ago, but it doesn't take long for the sparks to fly and boy how Nicky has grown up. This will make you laugh, made me cry, and hope that romance wins out. This is Book 1 of 3, so I can't wait to read more adventures. I voluntarily requested and read an uncorrected advance reader copy.

Going From Childhood Sweethearts To Second or Maybe Third Chance Lovers Finding an HEA!! They're Childhood Sweethearts, Grown up & Reunited with another chance at getting it RIGHT!! He's a Prince working towards making his environment better by repurposing & using food usually thrown away for needy people! She's a grad-student finishing her thesis on non-invasive farming methods, which could help his country... Their meet up after so many years apart quickly goes from business to personal; now, if only the paparazzi would leave them alone they'd see where they actually stand & if something Real is Growing... I was granted an ARC of Tawdra Kandle's "The Anti-Cinderella" via Booksprout; I gladly recommend this book to others based upon its own merits. Tawdra's a talented author with quite the storytelling ability. All opinions expressed within this review are uniquely my own & freely given! Until next time... Happy Reading!
