About the book:
A struggling antiques collector finds herself falling in love with a millionaire playboy; but can she ever be a part of his world?
Meet the Naughty Princess Club, a series from USA Today bestselling author Tara Sivec that brings readers to Fairytale Lane and the hilarity—and romance—that three women fall into once they decide to strut their stuff and bring on their own happily ever after.
While her friends have broken free of their insecurities, Ariel Waters is struggling to come out of her shell. Her ex-husband took away her voice and her self-confidence, and Ariel is drowning under a sea of debt to afford the alimony she has to pay him. She refuses to ever fall for a man’s charms again, and is determined to make her own way.
When her house and her beloved antiques are taken by the bank after too many missed payments, Ariel finds herself adrift until the infuriatingly charming Eric Sailor comes to her rescue. Although she can’t stand the millionaire playboy, Eric’s kindness and unconditional support reveal hidden depths and a love that Ariel never imagined she could find.
But there are outside influences who will stop at nothing to keep them apart; can Ariel and Eric weather the storm and find a way to be together in Kiss the Girl?
Kiss the Girl by Tara is the third book from the contemporary romance Naughty Princess Club series. Each book in the series features a different couple but all three ladies are introduced in the first book and an overall story carries on between installments leaving this best enjoyed reading from the beginning.
The first book of this series, At the Stroke of Midnight, introduced all three of the female leads in the series as they came together and became friends. The trio couldn’t be more opposite of one another with Cindy being an uptight recent divorcee, Belle the nerdy and shy librarian and Ariel the wild, crazy and outspoken one. The ladies had shown up at a function all wearing princess costumes and were offered a job working a party. Thinking children’s party they hastily agreed since all were in need of money but little did they know it was definitely adult and they were expected to strip. After running like crazy they rethought their retreat and came up with the idea to form their new business the Naughty Princess Club.
The fun part of this series is that these ladies are loosely based on the fairy tale princesses and now in this third installment it is Ariel’s turn to find her happiness and learn to shake her booty. Ariel has always been the outspoken of the trio but readers finally get to see her true self as she struggles after being evicted from her home and losing all of her antiques. Eric comes to the rescue giving Ariel a place to stay but can he tame the feisty Ariel and open up her heart again?
As I’ve said with the previous books in this series words aren’t enough to show how much I absolutely adore these books. Tara Sivec has written the perfect combination of humor, sexiness and added a dash of creativity with the fairy tale twist. But not only do I laugh all throughout and my Kindle may get a little steamy but she’s given an underlying message of female empowerment showing her characters growing and maturing to be able to take care of themselves before beginning their relationships. Again, I definitely recommend checking out the entire series as I don’t think anyone would regret laughing and smiling so much!
