Sophia Andreou has always been the “good daughter” who tried to keep her domineering father happy. She followed the rules and did everything that was asked of her. But this time, her father is asking too much. The family company is crumbling, and her father has arranged a marriage to a Greek billionaire who can save their property business. What?! Umm no thank you. If Cinderella can dress up to win a prince, surely Sophia can do the opposite and ditch hers...
Dion Kourakis has come a long way from being an orphan with only a single friend to his name. Now he runs a billion-dollar investment company and has the respect of everyone in Europe. His charming personality covers a lot of emotional scars, including his desire to make his mentor proud. Dion doesn’t exactly want a bride to go along with his next business deal, and he plans on letting the lass down gently when they meet...
Only, his future bride has turned out to be nothing like what he thought she’d be. She’s quirky and has a habit of turning up to social events in strange outfits. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what she’s up to, but the harder she tries to convince him she’d be an awful wife, the more he wants to convince her they’d be perfect together.

Taxidermy, Wacky Clothes & Bad Hair Can’t Derail this Engagement
Sophia has grown up with a bullying father and thinks nothing he can do will surprise her but she is horrified when she discovers he is marrying her off to a stranger, as part of a business deal. If it weren’t for the fact that her mother would suffer, she would just refuse but her father knows her weakness is her mother’s welfare. Instead she decides to do everything possible to make her prospective groom reject her. This is the fun part of the book, later followed by darker life events. Set on the beautiful island of Corfu, I felt disappointed that there was so little description of the place. Even on Sophia and Dion’s trip to Paris, the city itself was glossed over. I liked the characters but I wasn’t moved by their emotions. An easy beach read for the summer.
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
