One incompetent lady.
Three holiday parties.
A whole lot of mistakes ready to be made.

Christmas and New Year’s is a busy time for Gallyrian Royalty and I have to play my part. According to the media, that part is now Prince Playboy Nico’s girlfriend. Uh, no thanks.

Thank God Kostin steps in to save me. Until the media decide I was brought home to marry him instead. Or,

Start your review of Lady in Training (Royal Misadventures, #2)
Lady In Training was a pretty good second book for this series. We get to see Tati growing up a bit more. Whether it's her new role in life or not - she's growing. Things are definitely changing in her world now. She's dealing with the press and all the gossiping that follows. It was a bit interesting to see this side since anyone that's in Hollywood (or that industry) or in royalty - they are constantly followed.

Besides her, we get to see Dimitri's jealousy side in this one. It was enjoyable t

We can see her evolving into a lady, ( or maybe trying to). Still funny as ever . And trying to understand the people around her . I love how the little process she matures from a teenager to a more adult version of herself

Lady Tatiana aka Anya is back and she is still causing mayhem and chaos, no matter how hard she tries not too. Unlike her older sister Lia it has taken Anya a lot more time to pretend and learn to be the perfect royal and now with rumors of her dating all three princes and possibly marrying one, it seems like she is destined to stay in the spotlight as the uncouth royal. Anya still has a lot to learn but with the rumours of her marrying Prince Nico things are difficult especially since Nico isn' ...more

„I'm No Princess“ - Logical Continuation of the series

„I'm no Princess“ is a real series, telling the continuing story of a main character over several books. “Lady in Training“ picks up after Tatiana's coming out ball and focuses a) on her efforts to understand history and civics of Gallyr and b) her personal relationships with the princes which are fodder for the local press.

As we continue to follow Tatiana's development as a member of Gallyrian nobility, the story is not quite as lighthearted

Well, shit. Wow.
Ok, it's clear I'm not being very coherent right now. But damn... I'm actually speechless. And my head is spinning with so many feelings.
Oh and I SO need the next installment like yesterday. But I guess I'll have to wait, since this book just got out and I'm lucky to have read an ARC.
So, I'm now totally in love with Nico (yeah, I fell for his charms, but I also think he may have actual feelings for Tati) and I'm also actually falling in love with Dimitri too. So, yeah, confuse
Booktastically Amazing
And once again, we embark on an addicting journey not unlike Shopaholic.

Will I regret it? Maybe.
Do I regret it now? Absolutely not.

Unto the next book because I’m impatient for more swoony, sassy, islands of sarcastic gods and goddesses.

Someone pass me a tissue please, I’m starting to get attached-

Lady in Training is the 2nd YA/NA adult book in the I’m No Princess series. This novella is a sweet, fun read that picks up shortly after Now Presenting (book 1) ended. Tati is adjusting to palace life and still remains that independent, klutzy girl that you cannot help but love. She is determined to make her father proud and to hopefully cause no more mishaps - no setting the table on fire! Nico plays a prominent role in this book. He is certainly cheeky and the fun royal as well as a notorious ...more

Part Two of I'm No Princess. This one picks up right after Tati's introduction to Gallyrian society. Now that she is officially "presented," she has to fulfill more societal roles, and we get to see the way the snobby elitists treat her (even worse than before). What's great about this character is that she perseveres. She keeps going, despite what the majority of people think, and fights the good fight. Throughout this whole story, she's got a crazy amount of new things going on in her life, bu ...more
* I have received an ARC in exchange for an honest review

This novel is the second great installment in the author's I'm No Princess series. This novel was full of feels and laughs. I really liked how funny many of the scenes were. The nice humor and unique take on royalty made the book a very enjoyable read. I also liked the book boyfriends in this novel. They were super swoony and sweet. I really wanted them to be real. In addition, the drama and angst in this novel was really good. There was

This was another book in the ongoing saga that is Tatiana's story. I love her relationship with her family and the Royal Family. Nico is a great friend to her and I can feel the attraction between her and Dmitri. I have a feeling this budding relationship is built on lies though and I'm concerned for Anya. Some of the clues are there within the storyline but maybe I'm just reading more into the story than I should. There is love there between them - a truly beautiful connection if only he could ...more

And the story goes... Great, heart-warming, romantic story!

So the story continues from the first part and there we got more action and it is getting more serious for Tati. She needs to face press and gossips that follow. Also she has a chance to meet ladies from the society which are not so warm to her at all. Dimitri tries hard to show his feelings for Tati but jealousy sometimes gets better of him. Still this undeniably connection between them and chemistry, the instant pull and push. Will her

I did not read the first book and I suggest you do I think it would make reading the second one even more fun. This is a super cute book about a character that you cannot help but love. The author has taken a taken this character with no experience with the etiquette of the royals or the politics of the court and drop her right into the middle of this whole mess. There are sparks and humor mixed into this delightful read you really should check it out. I did receive a free copy of this book and ...more

The second part in the series picks right up where the first book left off.

Tatiana continues to adjust to her new life in Gallyr, dealing with snobbish nobility, political unrest and the Gallyrian version of "fake news". Not to mention the princes who at times seem to do their darnedest to make life even more confusing and complicated for her.

I'm curious to find out what's in store for Tati in the next book!

I hadn’t realised this was a continuing story. I did enjoy it but it would have been better if I had started at the beginning. The characters were likeable but again It needed the backstory to fully understand and enjoy their interactions. I will get the first book and look forward to reading the others.

She has many parties to go to and some think she is going to get engaged to one man while some think she is going to get engaged to another one. What is going on for her? Who will she get? Will she get either of them? See what will happen

Love this series!

This is such a fun quirky romantic comedy wrapped up in a not so normal fairytale. I enjoy Tatiana and her escapades. And then there is Nico and Demitri! Yummy and I cannot wait to see how things progress in the next book after that ending! Five glittery stars!

The book is a good teen and young adult holiday romantic comedy read. The story has a good story line. The characters are good. The story is a sweet, fun, and quick read.

A bit of fairytale and a bit of reality

I discovered Elizabeth Stevens a while ago when was searching for easy and nice YA. She writes a bit differently from other authors due to the Australian English and, I suppose, a bit different view of life.

This one is about imaginary country and its monarchy. We can seee how the lovestory of the heroes develops. I like them all. Will continue to read the series.

Writer. Reader. Perpetual student. Nerd.

I started out writing fantasy. But, I like to write anything, honestly. These days, I mainly stick to YA and there's always at least a sprinkling of romance, if not a 'whoops, I dropped the whole packet in'. Almost all my books are set in my home state of South Australia, either in real or fictional places - gotta write what you know - with Netherfield being
