She can’t trust him…or her desire for him.
Marnie Ducello is way past second chances. Most days she’s fighting to forget the past and stay sober—a combination she doesn’t always pull off. She’s done waiting for Prince Charming. So when a sexy stranger turns out to be an arrogant, cab-stealing jerk, Marnie isn’t surprised. If only her rash reaction to his rudeness hadn’t resulted in her arrest. . .
Singer Danny Roland is no prince. He has fame, fortune, and a not-so-hidden addiction. He’s running from memories of the lives he’s ruined. Keeping his personal demons under control and out of the tabloids is what Danny wants more than anything. After a simple drug deal goes very wrong, Danny decides to make karmic amends—by finding the woman he abandoned to the police. Marnie’s a recovering addict, too, so he offers her the deal of a lifetime: a job as his personal assistant and a safe space in his home to live in if she stays sober.
Marnie is soon swept up into Danny’s world of prying paparazzi and vengeful exes. She can’t help the burning attraction between them, but she can’t trust Danny—or herself. And when Danny’s brother begins to pursue her, Marnie and Danny must both come to terms with the painful secrets that haunt them. They’re both broken…but maybe together they can be unbreakable.
*I received an ARC of this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
Danny is a recovering addict and when his path crosses Marnie’s he cannot get her out of his mind. He wants to help her. Sponsor her.
Marnie thinks Danny wants something, no one offers something like he is without strings attached, but she’ll take is offer nonetheless. Being his assistant is hard work and she’ll have her spiraling moments, but in the end it’ll make her stronger.
Together they’re stronger. Even if it’s just her being his assistant and making his life easier.
Based on the synopsis I was expecting a drama filled romance, but that is not what this is. The Prince’s Plan is about two people attempting to overcome their addictions. They relapse, they have memories of the worst things they’d done while high, they substitute one thing for another…it’s all a winding tale of drug hazed misery. The love story between Danny and Marnie is barely even a hint upon the pages. There is, however, lots of detailed sex and drug usage, but mostly them with other people.
It does describe the heart of addiction and everything one loses, including themselves.
