Once Upon A Time: Billionaires in Disguise: Flicka
ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a beautiful princess, Flicka von Hannover, who lived an enchanted life. She jetted around Europe staging charity events with friends, had married a handsome prince in the most spectacular royal wedding of the 21st century, and should have lived happily e ...more
The plot is misleading. Almost the entirety of this book leads up to that plot, which I'm sure will continue into the nex ...more
When a real princess falls in love with a man who is definitely not a prince, a royal fairy tale turns dangerous.
ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a beautiful princess, Flicka von Hannover, who lived an enchanted life. She jetted around Europe staging charity events with friends, had married a handsome prince in the most spectacular royal wedding of the 21st century, and should have lived happily ever after.
But then she found the handsome prince in ...more
This is the night my life ended, and though I didn’t know it at the time, the night I was reborn. — Her Serene Highness Friederike Marie Louise Victoria Caroline Amalie Alexandra Augusta—Prinzessin von Hannover und Cumberland (aka Fricka)
Your judgement of this book likely relies heavily on what you want for a book, what your expectations are. I don't read literature, it doesn't appeal to my tastes because I read to keep myself occupied usually fun and either sexy of fluffy. I can tolerate badly...more
This book is for you if… you are in search of worst practice examples of how to not write a book.
I talked about how precious life is with a friend yesterday and not to waste time on things that don't pay off, no matter what they are. I once promised myself that if a book is not gripping me by about 1/3 in, it ain't worth it. Today, I am picking that up again.

In this story , WULF'S little sister, Flicka , is all grown up , and it is her wedding . Some of her past has been revealed in previous books, but here , we find out even more, And it is very emotional , as growing up can be for most people, but for her ...more
there were some things I really liked about this - the writing style was definitely unique and interesting but not in a trying-to-be-too-cute sort of way. there was never a dull moment. I liked Dieter, ...more
It's been a while since I had a book from this author and I couldn't start it fast enough. I'm in love with her writing and each book is a challenge.
Blair Babylon had proven that she can make you dream without leaving your house. Each book is a breathe of fresh air. Her writing is simple yet powerful, super detailed and engaging and with lots of hot stuff into the mix.
Once Upon a Time: Flicka is her latest release and it's the first book from the Runaway Princess Bride series. Let's just give ...more
Flicka - 5+++++ Stars
We finally get to see how things played out from Flicka's point of view. Gahhhh, there are sooo many things I want to talk about, but I really don't want to spoil this for others. If you are like me, you may want to have your copies of Rae and Wulf's story (and all of the epilogues that concern them) available while you are reading this. I found myself going back to their story to review thin ...more
You know I have read Blair's entire library (or close to it ) and you would think I'd have learnt my lesson...but no.
Without spoiling anything, you get to see history from the other billionaires in disguise series. I couldn't put it down and am now waiting for the next one to be released
Forgive my tantrum. I’ll control myself now. But it truly is all Blair Babylon’s fault. She’s gone and written an amazing princess story (…back up and read that again: I just put the word “amazing” in front of “princess story!”), and I am obsessed. Now, while I think most women share at least a bit of the “Princess Gene” somewhere deep in their souls, I’m not one of those women that get t ...more
I think the only writer I can think of in this genre that is comparable to Blair Babylon is JA Huss. The amount of intrigue, hidden backstories and mysteries is astounding. And the amount of detail (seriously, who knew there was all this stuff about religion involved in royal successions in this modern day???)
Dieter’s been a staple secondary character through all of the books in these interrelated series. He’s been mysterious, efficie ...more
We've been waiting for Flicka's story ever since we met her big brother Wulf, The Dom of the Devilhouse, & Prince of Hannover💙 She is a Princess of many Countries, Great Britain being one of them though she is far down the line of succession.
This Prinzessin's family line comes through the House of Hannover as does the Queen of England's forefathers. They are related, they are duty bound, they are Royals!!!
Flicka is marrying Prince Pierre Grimaldi of Monaco. She's a modern Prince ...more
While I normally try to read at least 25% before abandoning a book, I'm on holiday now and didnt feel like it.. c'est la vie.
Reasons why I picked up this book:
- it was free
- the synopsis sounded good enough, who doesn't like a good modern fairytale?
- as an european I liked that (some of) the plot takes place in Europe.. (big mistake, why you can read beneath)
Reasons why I stopped reading:
- Flicka, really? how do you get from Fredericke to Flicka? and as a Dutch-speaking person, this ann ...more
Reviewing books I love is often much more difficult than reviewing books that are just OK; Once Upon A Time is one of those books. I've been reading Blair Babylon's books for about four years but it seems like just yesterday. She writes compelling stories with characters that have complicated lives. I don't just read her books, I become immersed in the world she has created for her characters.
Her Billionaires in Disguise (BID) and Rock Stars in Disguise (R ...more

I have read every 'In Disguise' book that the very talented Blair Babylon has written, whether it was Rae & Wulf (loved) or Lizzie & Theo's Billionaire series or, my most favorite, Rock Stars in Diguise with Georgie & Zan (swoon)! All the other band members from Zan's Killer Valentine had a great book also, LOVED THEM ALL. I absolutely devoured these books & for good reason..sexy, steamy, twisty, as little angsty & full of mysterious goodness that intertwines as the stories are t ...more
Given this book’s description, I was expecting something very different going in. But it became clear about 20% in that the story wasn’t going to play out at all like the description laid out. It’s not until the author’s note at the end where it’s revealed that the author wrote a completely falsified jacket summary to be cagey toward her readers and throw them off. Okay fine, that’s cool. I get it. But why keep the summary this way? Why not update ...more
How long have we been wondering, waiting, worrying: what happened? Where is she? Who's with her? How could her brother, the seemingly omnipotent Wolf, not have some idea of her whereabouts, or at least where to look? (Seriously, if you're not familiar with the man, he's creepily genius-level clever at figuring out what people ar ...more
