Well, it finally happened.

After many moons of reading romance novels, I finally found a Greek billionaire story I can get behind. I have to say, I honestly thought this day would never come.

Sophia has lived her life trying to fade into the background. Her overbearing father demands a docile and subservient daughter, even though her natural inclination is to be bold and stick to her own guns. At 24, Sofia’s learned to keep to herself and not rock the boat, but when her father tells her

Reminded me so much of a traditional HQ romance... 3.5 stars
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Because I am a romance addict I’ve read hundreds of millionaire/billionaire stories. I enjoy them I admit. Every woman wants to be spoiled and fall for a hot guy who can afford to spoil us. This book is exactly that. It reminded me so much of a traditional Harlequin romance though. Several areas I found humorous. Are there really women who are that docile and refuse to stick up for themselves? I have a hard tim

Sophia reluctantly agrees to an arranged marriage to protect her mother. She flies out to Corfu to meet her soon to be fiancè but she has a plan.

Dion wants to buy Sophia's fathers company for personal reasons and if that means a bride being in deal then who is he to say no. He wants the company more than anything else. I didn't even mind that he is a millionaire. He did act like it and he doesn't have a string of women.

I rarely wander into the rom com genre there is just something that rubs me

Smart, seductive, and entertaining!

How to Lose a Fiancé is a hilarious, quick, steamy tale that takes us into the life of the stubborn, creative, Sophia Andreous as she endeavours to do whatever it takes to have the sexy, hardworking, billionaire Dion revoke the business deal that includes their arranged marriage.

The writing is whimsical and light. The characters are quirky, supportive, and passionate. And the plot is a laugh-out-loud funny blend of familial obligation, life, love, friendship, i

A Greek billionaire meets his match in How to Lose a Fiancé . I’m generally not one for billionaire romances, but how could I resist one where the heroine pulls a reverse Ugly Duckling and is armed with a taxidermy fox? Author Stefanie London does a good job of mixing humor and heart in this story.

All her life, Sophia Andreou has worked to keep her father happy. She’s so close to getting her freedom when the man pulls the rug out from under her and says he

SUCH A FANTASTIC AND HEARTWARMING READ. Stefanie really did a good job at creating dynamic characters with complex issues. Loved how she handled where the story was going and even our villains.

Ummm....a Greek billionaire? Yes please!!! I was hooked on How to Lose a Fiancé as soon as I read the blurb and thankfully the entire novel did not disappoint. I loved how tough Sophia was throughout the novel. It's refreshing to see a woman have a backbone these days! And Dion....oh Dion! I adored him! I enjoyed witnessing these two move from a marriage in name only to a real marriage! Their journey to falling in love wasn't easy, but it was definitely worth it in the end. Sophia and Dion are p ...more

MS London never disappoints me with one of her stories, she really knows how to pull a reader in, she brings the characters to life, she makes me cheer them on and feel the emotions, make yourself comfy for this one you won’t want to put it down as you get to know Dion and Sophia.

Great setup for this fun, sexy romance! Sophia's controlling father has planned a marriage of convenience for her to Dion along with the sale of his company. Sophia needs Dion to reject her so she can get out of the marriage without making her father angry, so she plans to be as outlandish as possible, and exactly the wrong type of woman for a society lifestyle. But it's not long before Dion sees through her ruse and when the truth comes out, the real woman is even more fascinating to him.

I've been a big fan of Stefanie London ever since I read her Bad Bachelors series. She writes fun contemporary romances that are super swoony to boot. I loved the concept of How to Lose a Fiance, so I knew I had to try it. I mean, what's not to like with a story of a woman trying to get her fiance to dump her?

Sophia has spent most of her life keeping her family by basically being a puppet in her father's hands. She does everything that he asks of her without a word, but this time around he has g

Sophie has spent a lifetime trying to avoid her father’s wrath both for her and her mother’s sake. When she is called into his office, she didn’t expect to told that her father was selling his company to Dion, a Greek billionaire, and that her being his wife was part of the purchase. She believes the best way out of the situation is by proving herself unworthy to her new fiancée and having him end the arrangement.

Dion has a painful past and he is determined to purchase the company for his own re

I really enjoyed this fun, semi-hate to love romance. Sophia was the type of character I can get behind. At the start of the book she plays the good daughter, but as it progresses she grows stronger and more confident. I liked her quirky ways of keeping Greek billionaire Dion away and uninterested. The romance between the two seemed to happen naturally. It didn't feel forced which was a breath of fresh air. I called it a semi-hate to love romance, because they don't actually hate each other, its ...more

This was a super quick and fun read. Predictable in the best ways with two entertaining main characters, decent backstory and subplots, a little bit of ridiculousness, and a dash of saucy. However, while I'm glad these are always a quick read, I always find myself wanting more detail and depth. Just an extra few chapters to build out more from Sophie and Dion.

It's a weird day when my biggest problem with the book is the cover. And it's not even a bad cover when you take it as it is. It's just... the heroine of this book, Sophia, is frequently described as pale, paler than Dion at the very least. So why is this beautiful but very tanned woman on the cover??? Yes, I know that's a very picky point for me to make, but ugh.

Now that my worst criticism is over and done with... I read this book mostly in one sitting. Seriously. I pretty much

Stefanie London, a new-to-me author, writes about one of my favourite tropes in How to Lose a Fiancé and I was so intrigued and completely interested after reading the blurb. Plus, it had Greek's, which also happens to one of my favourite cultures to read about so I HAD to pick this book up!

Unfortunately, I found this book to be boring and I actually resorted to flipping pages after the 60% mark. Personally, the writing felt bland, the characters not interesting enough and the spark between th

Holy smoke this book! This was my first-time reading Stefanie London and I am thoroughly impressed with the story line and all the emotions I went through will reading.

Sophia Andreou has been doing everything her father has ever asked of her, hoping to one day have independence from her overbearing dominating father. Her father is Cyrus “the Greek” Andreou and his business is struggling. In order

Sophia and Dion’s unexpected love story in How to Lose a Fiance’ by Stefanie London, was an emotional and wonderful story of two people never planning to marry who needed to be honest, understanding, and communicate true expectations. Sophia tried to be the good daughter to please her domineering and controlling Greek father. This time, he had gone too far; forcing her to marry a Greek billionaire who can save the crumbling family company. Sophia wondered what would happen if she became a decons ...more

This was my first read by Stefanie London and I will say one thing for sure, she sure knows how to make you laugh out loud where my hubs started giving me funny looks across the room lol.
The book started straight out with the main heroine getting told she is to be married to a complete stranger who is wanting to purchase her fathers company and that the marriage is part of the business deal. What shocks her the most is that is wasn’t the stranger who asked for the marriage but her father insiste

Sophia Andreou has always done as her father asked, or rather told her to do. She may have questioned his decisions in her mind, but she never voiced those opinions out loud. Until her father tells her she is going to marry Dion Kourakis. She’s had enough of being the ‘good daughter’ and when she voices her opinion her father tells her that she doesn’t have a choice. The family company is in debt and the only way to save it is by marrying her off to Dion in return Dion will buy the company. Soph ...more

I adore "marriage of convenience" romances and How to Lose a Fiance by Stefanie London is a wonderful addition to the trope. This story draws you in immediately, and the engaging plot continuously entertains with each and every moment. The two main characters, Sophia Andreou and Dion Kourakis, have amazing chemistry, and their relationship is replete with desire, compassion, and inspiration. This is the fourth book I have embraced from this author.

I really enjoyed this book. I was chuckling and smiling the whole time I was reading it. The antics that Sophia pulled to convince Dion he did not want to go through with the arranged marriage were hilarious. The clown pants were a hoot but what killed me was the taxidermy namely Baroness Sasha Foxington III. Even with the crazy clothes that Sophia wore there was just something about her that drew Dion to her. He couldn’t figure it out because the kind of woman she was portraying was definitely ...more

Stefanie London is a new to me author, and I'm wondering how it took me so long to find her?! How to Lose a Fiance was story that I enjoyed a lot. It's the story of Sophia Andreou, who was a good daughter, who always tried to keep her controlling father happy, but this time he's gone too far. See, he sold his company, and part of the package was the new owner needed to marry Sophia, and she's horrified. Luckily, the person she's to marry is a younger Greek billionaire by the name of Dion Kouraki ...more

Another winner from Stefanie! This book has it all, topped perfectly with a handsome Greek businessman! Sophia has spent her life doing her father's bidding. He's cruel, manipulative and holds her mother's well being over Sophie's head as a means of controlling her. Especially now since his latest business deal includes Sophie as part of the package. He needs to bail on his business which is failing miserably and he plays right into the hands of Dion who wants the company for his own reasons as ...more
