Prince Matteo keeps women at a distance because of a mishap in his youth. However, it doesn’t hurt to keep his reputation in tact in order to benefit other interests as well. Matteo, seeking to allay some of the scene that Isabelle “Izzy” Jackson is making at her sister’s engagement party, escorts the wannabe pop princess from the stage and to private quarters. He has no idea that he has just invited a lot of trouble into his life, and he can’t seem to look past the veneer until he stumbles upon the unbelievable. Izzy makes Goals for the Day in order to see her dream realized. Her goal this time around is to get Matteo’s attention in order to make her dreams come true. Izzy is going to need that thick skin that she developed over time to get past this Prince’s high walls. Will she be able to manage that, or will she cut her losses and chalk it up to another learning experience?
Defying the Prince was a refreshing blend of light hearted fun, romance, and perseverance with a dash of reality tossed in for good measure! Defying the Prince had some truly laugh out loud moments as Izzy seemed to test Matteo repeatedly with her antics and outspokenness. I truly believed that Izzy was a flamboyant character who would NOT be kept down no matter the obstacle. If only more people endeavored to continue like Izzy in Defying the Prince…..or for that matter if there were more Matteo’s out there. Alas there are not, but Defying the Prince is a great escape that will have you rooting for the HEA between these two characters. Although Matteo and Izzy are so far apart, they manage to make it look as though they are two halves of a whole. Matteo and Izzy seemed to complement one another when they finally, truly looked at the other and saw the real person inside. I think they are the perfect balance of a great relationship and I so enjoyed my time reading about their story. Frankly, I couldn’t wait to see how Izzy would push Matteo and his staid life further as he really needed more of her brand of life!
I Joyfully Recommend Defying the Prince because Matteo and Izzy were a barrel of fun to be around for a bit, and I truly enjoyed Matteo’s speech in the closing of Defying the Prince.
