*I received this book free in exchange for an honest review*
What a great romance! I loved that they hated each other at first. Emily was spunky and didn't fall head over heels for the jerk because he was rich and royalty. She had a back bone. I enjoyed the idea of it being a reality show. This was a fun, romantic story, and as with the other book in this series I've read, leaves you smiling to yourself!
