Book Review: How to Catch a Prince by Rachel Hauck

How to Catch a Prince

The Synopsis:

Prince Stephen came to America to escape responsibility. But what he found complicates his life more than ever.

Corina Del Rey is happy with her life in Melbourne, Florida. She spends her days engrossed in her career as a journalist and has her sights set on climbing the corporate ladder if for no other reason, to distract herself from her dissolving family. But when she is confronted with the past she fought so hard to put behind her, she struggles to make sense of her future.

Prince Stephen of Brighton Kingdom has moved on since the tragic death of his buddies in Afghanistan. A star professional rugby player, he has no intention of looking over his shoulder at what could’ve been.

But when a notice arrives in the mail requiring his and his wife s appearance before the courts to dissolve their marriage, he must deal with the questions rumbling around in his heart. He thought his marriage had been annulled long ago, but his memories of Corina Del Rey remain close. Does he still love her? Can he even find her? Above all, can he tell her the truth about that fateful night in Afghanistan seven years ago? If he does, he might really lose her forever.”

My Review:

I have heard so many good things about this author and have really wanted to try and read the first of her books in this series, but sometimes you can’t get on certain tours in time πŸ™‚ My interest in How to Catch a Prince belongs to the fact that I always enjoy reading modern-day fairy-tales especially when there is an actual royal family involved. However, I really couldn’t get into How to Catch a Prince. The writing was gorgeous and I loved how the author worded this story, but the actual story failed to capture my attention and I had a hard time continuing to read it. It just seemed to move a little too slow for me and the details were too repetitive. However the characters were wonderfully thought out and very well portrayed through their actions and words so that was refreshing to read, I could understand exactly where each character was coming from and their actions were believable.

So having said the above, I will still rate How to Catch a Prince 4 out of 5 stars despite my lack of interest in the story line, because I was very impressed with the author’s heart and equally as much as her writing. I look forward to giving some of her other books a chance as soon as I can!
