My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I’d never read any Courtney Milan before and I totally loved this book. Minnie is a strong, clever character. I loved the dynamic between the characters too.
Robert is handsome and rich etc, but he’s also not an alpha-hole. He realises that Minnie is cleverer than he is and he’s totally fine with that.
The dialogue is excellent. The secondary characters were extremely likeable without being anodyne. To be honest, it’s worth reading just for the conversation about how dragons can’t milk princesses because they don’t have opposable thumbs.
Smart heroines, beta heroes (albeit broad shouldered, rich and handsome ones), good dialogue… I’ll read more of Courtney Milan’s books.
