Overview

Amelia Radley thought she had it all when she met a man in a bar and he ended up being royalty. Their love affair was anything but boring, and yet he dumped her almost exactly a year after asking her out to their first dinner date. While the wound was deep and fresh thirty days after their separation, she picked up the morning paper only to see that the man she thought she loved had already become engaged to another woman.

Her best friend, Tina, suggests the only thing she knows would make her feel better. Amelia should start dating any man she meets that she likes so that she can get over her ex. The idea is ludicrous, and yet Amelia agrees to a date with a man she has never met before. All the while, she considers herself nothing more than the prince�s ex, a woman who could not hold the affections of every woman�s dream.

When she finds love in an unexpected place, it�s challenged by the past and the future looks rocky. Amelia�s insecurities might get in the way of her finding true love, in more ways than one.

I received an arc of The Prince's Ex by Nadene Seiters from the author. The whole concept of what it would be like to have dated a Prince and then trying to move on from that situation was interesting to me so I decided to give this one a shot. The Prince's Ex would be a great read for those looking for a sweet little love story. I didn’t really love Amelia our heroine. She was so negative in the beginning, down trodden, suspicious, there are a slew of words I can think to describe her, most of them not good. As the story goes on she gets a little better, but I couldn't help but find her preoccupied with money at most times. Amelia spent a lot of her time talking about money and dating people that had a certain level of money for her even going as far as snubbing those that didn’t. It made her hard to like especially when she was having a self-centered moment (and there were a lot of those). I just really did not like her, sorry. he's kind of just a horrid woman. To be quite honest, by the time we got to the meat of the story I didn't think Amelia deserved to get a good guy. I thought our hero Peter was too good for her. He was so sweet and willing to put up with Amelia's crap, he deserves a metal, seriously. Plus of course then he has this secret back story that ends up making him acceptable in her eyes. So basically Amelia doesn’t learn a lesson and become a better human being, instead she just falls into a good situation for her when all of a sudden our hero is good enough (read: has enough money) for her. Once our hero and heroine do finally get together things get better in the story. They move rather quickly but eh. I think if I hadn't hated Amelia so much this could have received a 3.5 star rating, but I couldn’t get over how angry she made me all the time. Pretty much every single one of my notes is complaining about out heroine and the stuff she does. Yet, like I said at the beginning of this post if you are looking for a love story with a great hero you can get a little swoony for The Prince's Ex might just be a great next read for you.

This was a well written and put together novel.  Seiters takes the concept of prince charming and runs with it.  She brings the dating world to light in a rather vivid manner that allows readers to really feel what the characters are experiencing.  She develops both her scenery and storyline in a gradual manner that allows you to feel out the story as a whole. The main characters in this novel are quite intricately developed.  It was refreshing to get to know the ins and outs that make them tick.  Although quite intriguing, I found the female lead in this story to be rather self-absorbed.  It made it rather difficult to identify with her at times.   The rest of the cast was equally intriguing, everyone adding something to the story rather than simply being an extra name on paper to make the cast seem larger. As a whole this was an enjoyable read.  It was a good story, but for me was just missing that extra spark that would shoot it up into the 4 & 5 star realm.   Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

Amelia thought she had it all, until a month ago when her boyfriend Prince Simon breaks up with her. Now she learns from the local paper that he is already engaged and soon to marry someone else. When her BFF Tina tries to get her to start dating, even for a one night stand, Amelia thinks she isn’t ready to date. But Tina will not take no for an answer. So Amelia lets Tina set her up with one of the many men listed in Tina’s phone. The date is set for tonight and she knows nothing about this man. It seems to be going really well until they get back to his place. And Amelia knows she needs to leave NOW! When she realizes that she is in a rut in her job, she goes to her boos and quits. When the boss asked her on a date. She dates him but something seems off. All the while Peter at the coffee shop is always friendly and flirting with her. And she thinks maybe she should give him a chance. Will Amelia find love or will she always be looking for it? Will Tina keep after her to date for one night stands as she does? Can Peter wait and see what might happen with Amelia? This is a first for me from Nadene Seiters and I really enjoyed it. Looking forward to reading more from her. **Copy provided by the author in exchange for my honest review**

Rating 3.5 While the story had its interesting parts, the characters made the book more enjoyable for me than the actual storyline. As for the characters, they were pretty interesting. There’s Amelia. I have such mixed emotions about her, but overall I think it’s safe to say that I liked her. I can’t count how many times I wanted to shake her, but I realize that she’s a typical woman. She’s confusing (I’m not even sure she knows what she wants!), she’s insecure, but above all she’s relatable. I think lots of women can understand her. She wants to find someone to spend her life with, but she isn’t exactly sure what she needs in a significant other. Then, there’s Tina. She’s the BFF and the polar opposite of Amelia. I enjoyed her character a lot and I wish we would have seen more of her. And of course, we’ve got the love interest. I adored him and I like that he brought his own baggage to their relationship. After all, we all have some. There’s other characters that really brought life to the story, but I don’t want to spoil anything. The story was a pretty typical romance, but a few different elements thrown in to make it different than all the others. I think I would have liked to explore more of Amelia’s relationship with the Prince, so it was a little disappointing that we were thrown into the story after it had ended. Other than that, really, I don’t really have much to add about the story. It was sweet and had its funny moments. I would recommend this one for those that really enjoy HEA romances. * This book was received from the author in exchange for an honest review. * You can read all of my reviews on my blog, KDH Reviews.

Told with humor and heart, Nadene Seiters’s The Prince’s Ex is the tale of one woman’s journey from heartbreak and public humiliation to the realization that her own Prince Charming could be standing right in front of her. Settle in and let this author build her world around you and populate it with characters that will make you laugh, leave you exasperated, make you smile, sigh, smirk, cringe and get angry, just like in “The Real World.” Amelia thought she knew where her life was going, that she would be marrying a real prince, only to discover she is being tossed aside and the tabloids are flashing stories about the future “Mrs. Prince” across their pages and she is dubbed The Prince’s Ex. Amelia already has abandonment issues and her confidence is cut to the core while well-meaning friends set her up with one disastrous blind date after another. Ready to jump out of her skin, she tosses her job away and sets a course that she knows she can navigate, sans men. Peter, the local coffeehouse barista is the warm smile she sees every morning, but nothing more, until she discovers what a good friend he can be. But does he want more? Is Amelia ready to take a chance on a man whose career seems less than lofty? To say there is more to Peter than his good looks and gentle ways is an understatement, but will Amelia see who her real prince is before Peter gives up on her? Will she see she is worthy of love that could stand the test of time and tear down the walls of self-doubt she has built? Nadene Seiters can write true romance, the kind that sneaks up on you and melts your heart as you watch it blossom, face storms of uncertainty and still stand strong. Her characters grow with each page until you realize they feel real, not some over the top dream team, or some super-action figures come to life. Beautifully written, with an easy pace that never feels rushed or overdone, this tale of second chances could be a perfect summer read. If you want to feel good about love and how it brings the best out in people, try The Prince’s Ex.

The Prince's Ex, Nadene Seiters. Review from jeannie zelos book reviews I love contemporary romance if it has something a bit extra about it. This book does, though I found it really slow to start. Amelia has just been dumped after a year of dating Prince Simon ( Simon just doesn't seem like a “royal” name does it? Doesn't conjure up the right image – maybe because as a kid all our dogs were named Simon...Simon the first, Simon second and Simon third !!) Now only a month later she learns via the press he's already engaged. Her best friend Tina, yoga teacher and well, frankly, almost a slut, a dif man each night it seems...says the answer is to stop moping and start dating. She goes through her long, long phone list to find one for Amelia. That first date goes very wrong – and is quite funny...and Amelia tells Tina that's it. No more blind dates. She's feeling that she just isn't good enough and very insecure about herself.... These conversations take place at their daily morning meet, at a the local coffee shop run by the lovely Peter, and are avidly followed by onlookers eager for more scandal from the Royal Ex...poor Amelia can't even nurse a broken heart in peace. She changes a lot in her life, dates someone else, learns a lot about herself, and finds love in the last place she thought of. It's a slow burn romance, the attraction beginning in a way even before they've dated, and it's a good example of how we don't always see whats right in front of us. My nan used to say “let the dog see the rabbit” and “can't see the wood for the trees” meaning just this – we ignore the obvious sometimes when we are looking, and Amelia ignored the man right in front of her who was perfect. Just perfect for her. Of course as all romances do, it doesn't run smoothly but there are hiccups from ex's on both sides, from silly arguments, and from the way people have things from their past that affect their present and need to be accepted. People come with everything – that what shapes them into who they've become. It's a real love story, a HEA with some real life situation hiccups, and with people who were just lovely and I could empathise with. Amelia, strong and loving, and someone who was likeable and hardworking, Tina who I didn't like at first but grew to respect, and who was such a good friend, and Peter...he was just wonderful, a loving family man, protective and a searingly sensual lover. When the opening came he was in – and not letting go! A real fun read, and thoughtful romance. Stars: Four. ARC supplied by author.

THE PRINCE'S EX by Nadene Seiters is a realistically written story about one woman's struggle to find herself after a bad breakup. After exactly one year Amelia is dumped by the royal she had believed she'd be spending the rest of her life with and given no other explanation than it just would never work out between them. This is not the first time a man has left her, starting with her father at a very young age, so she finds it hard not to feel there's something wrong with her. She tells herself she must be unlovable and goes into a bit of a tailspin. Her best friend Tina gives her about a month of feeling sorry for herself and then calls enough, enough. I liked her friend, Tina, a yoga instructor, who she meets for coffee everyday in a local coffee bar where they discuss their lives for all in the shop to hear. She was an independent young woman who enjoyed the single life, loved men, and wasn't the least bit repressed about her sexuality, just because she wasn't ready to settle down. What I liked most about her is that she truly cared about and was loyal to Amelia. She hated seeing her best friend hurting and decided to do something about it. She's certain what Amelia needs is to get back out there and meet a guy who can take her mind off her heartbreak. So she convinces Amelia to choose a name out of her phone, from the men Tina knows, and to go out on a blind date with him. The date goes well at first, but then turns into a bit of a disaster. His reaction and Amelia's reaction were comical to me, but definitely one of those things you can only laugh about after the fact when it's happening to you. Amelia herself is a wonderfully written character, beautiful, strong, likeable, independent and successful in so many ways, but also a typical woman with insecurities. A good person you would want to have as a friend and can't understand why she doesn't see her own worth. Ms. Seiters does a tremendous job allowing her readers into the rollercoaster of emotions and the mindset of Amelia as she finds her way. I felt that because she had such a rocky beginning her need for affirmation and security left her a bit vulnerable and confused. It took her awhile to open her eyes to what was right in front of her after setting her sights on a different sort of future for so long. I was completely drawn into her journey and rooting for her to find her happiness. Peter, the barista at the coffee shop that Amelia and Tina frequent was a doll. A dreamy book boyfriend to be sure. Handsome, kind, romantic, patient, sexy, and truly a nice guy. He was smitten with Amelia before she even realized he could be more than a friend. Before she realized his steady, loyal and loving ways were exactly what she really needed to find that stability she craved. Again, so well written and hard not to fall for. All in all this was a wonderful read with characters and a storyline that is written so realistically it's a love story easy to relate to and get behind. Ms. Seiters is a new author to me and now I will be looking for her others books for more! 4 stars ~Complimentary copy received in exchange for a honest review.

I nearly gave up on this book. It took forever to get into. Because of Tina, who I might add is kind of ‘slutty’, I wasn’t sure if this book was going to be a romance, or erotica. I think Tina did her damnedest to turn Amelia into herself. Fortunately, Amelia was made of better “stuff’, like morals, passion, and heart. Peter was a great human being, and had all the wonderful qualities that every woman hopes to find in a man. The actual story line was touching. It showed the truth regarding the work both mentally and physically it takes to have a successful relationship that becomes true love. I think the author did a fabulous job on character creation, but I think the story could have used less of Tina, and perhaps more about Amelia.
