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.

How do you get out of an arranged marriage when your father is the actual worst? Be the exact opposite of everything the potential groom would want.
Sophia's antics were absolutely hilarious. I could picture all of her crazy outfits and laughed out loud to her unbelievable schemes. I loved how Dion took all her crazy in stride and did his best to roll with it. These two kept me wanting to read more to see what would happen next.
I missed the first book in this series but I'm adding it to my TBR!!
I really enjoyed this book. I was chuckling and smiling the whole time I was reading it. The antics that Sophia pulled to convince Dion he did not want to go through with the arranged marriage were hilarious. The clown pants were a hoot but what killed me was the taxidermy namely Baroness Sasha Foxington III. Even with the crazy clothes that Sophia wore there was just something about her that drew Dion to her. He couldn’t figure it out because the kind of woman she was portraying was definitely not someone he would want to be with. Once he figured it out and Sophia was able to be herself they both had trouble fighting their attraction to each other even though neither of them wanted the arranged marriage. They spent a week in Paris to see if Dion could convince Sophia to go along with the arranged marriage and she was able to offer up “demands” that she wanted were she to go along with it.
I loved that BSF became an inside private joke for them and that she popped up throughout. It showed that Dion and Sophia were connecting in more than a physical way. Of course not everything is easy and when Dion had to deal with the death of someone close to him he pushed Sophia away in the process. Luckily Dion comes to the realization that he did in fact fall in love with Sophia and needed to fix what he ruined between them. I loved these two together from the beginning. There was just something about the chemistry between them that worked even when they didn’t want to work.
