On paper, Will Turner seems like the ideal man: he’s gorgeous, has a GSOH and looks great in a pair of Marigolds. Oh, and his tech start-up has made him rich beyond his wildest dreams. So why can’t he find the perfect girlfriend?
Stella’s just moved in with Will’s best mate Julian, and she’d love Will to settle down too, ideally with a New Best Friend for her. She persuades him to try online dating – but there’s a catch. Will has to go undercover and pretend to be an average, hard-working bloke. He’ll do the big reveal only when he’s found Ms Right.
What could possibly go wrong?
While Will encounters ticking biological clocks, YouTube pick-up artists and a cat called Muggle, Stella's own fairytale isn’t working out quite as she imagined. Is her heart really in the right place? And has she left it too late to kiss her prince?
I love the cover of this book. The colors are popping and eye catching, I won''t lie and say that the cover along with the title were the main things that drew me in firs.t. The synopsis of the book was very misleading however or maybe I was just expecting something different and it took away from the book. The writing was very good I just found the story a bit depressing for my taste at the moment.
The title is appropriate, you learn just how right the title of the book is as you read about Stella's miserable relationship with Julian because be certainly is the frog that didn't turn into a prince when you kiss him.
This is a good warning book for watching a girl get trapped in the cycle of a toxic relationship, the forgiving over and over and the waiting for it to get better. It also shows readers how much a relationship can affect every aspect of your life.
I think my favorite part of this book was how each chapter was started with a little fairy tale excerpt. It really gave the book an edge and some personality.
