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.

The Baroness Makes Three
Sophia has always lived her life as the good girl. She always does what her parents ask of her. When her dad “offers” her up for marriage in order to keep his business from failing, she infuriated! She can’t believe her dad would have her marry a perfect stranger to save his business, that he’s gambled away! So Sophia devises a plan that’s sure to work. She’ll fly to another country under the premise of marrying Dion. Prior to the wedding, Sophia hopes to bring enough quirkiness, embarrassment into the relationship that Dion will honor his word of saving her dad’s business, but bow out of marrying her.
Dion, a self-made billionaire, has always had trust issues. Growing up without parents drove his need to prove himself. Wanting to make his mentor proud, before he passes, Dion enters into an arrangement to wed Sophia in exchange for owning her father’s business. He doesn’t want the business to make money. He wants to own it in order to destroy it! His mentor doesn’t know this, only his best friend. When Sophia arrives, Dion finds she is nothing like her father! In fact, he finds her refreshing. He’s even offended for her that her father would offer his daughter to a stranger. Dion finds Sophia’s antics endearing. Her taxidermy and the Baroness are hilarious! I think I even had a pair of “clown” pants growing up!
Great story! Unique, funny, heart wrenching at times, but ultimately a great love story. It’s about forgiveness and moving beyond the past so that you can build a future. I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
How to Lose A Fiancé by Stefanie London. This is Sophia Andreou and Dion Kourakis’ story.
This was s a fun read. Sophia and Dion’s characters were so much fun. I was hooked from the beginning to the end. It was fun seeing Sophia’s personality as she discovered her true self. Dion tries to distance himself from people and says he doesn’t believe in love but does he really feel that way.
This book left me with a smile and helped relieve stress from everyday struggles.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Fun and charming read!
How to Lose A Fiancé by Stefanie London was a fun and charming read. An arranged marriage nobody wants, that is until they meet, then all bets are off. Sophia has always done what was expected of her, the good daughter. But when her overbearing father demands she marry for convenience, she is done. She has a plan to ditch said fiancé. I loved when Sophia was just herself. She was quirky and fun.
Dion worked hard to be where he is today. He was driven and determined but could still be caring and kind. He saw right through Sophia’s plans and even though he was also against the marriage, once he meets her he is drawn to her. I loved their witty interactions. How to Lose a Fiancé by Stefanie London was fun and steamy read.
