Princess for Hire by Lindsey Leavitt

Princess for Hire on Amazon

The Blurb

When Desi Bascomb gets discovered by the elite Façade Agency--royalty surrogates extraordinaire--her life goes from glamour-starved to spectacular in a blink. As her new agent Meredith explains, Desi has a rare magical ability: when she applies the ancient formula Royal Rouge, she can temporarily transform into the exact lookalike of any princess who needs her subbing services. Dream come true, right?

Well, Desi soon learns that subbing involves a lot more than wearing a tiara and waving at cameras. Like, what do you do when a bullying older sister puts you on a nasty crash diet? Or when a princess’s conflicted sweetheart shows up to break things off—and you know she would want you to change his mind?

In this hilarious series debut, one girl’s dream of glamour transforms into something bigger: the desire to make a positive impact. And an impact Desi makes, one royal fiasco at a time.

The Afterglow

The love I have for this book is UNDENIABLE. Lindsay Leavitt paints a perfect world that has you DYING to escape and become a princess. Of course, nothing would be a novel without a whole lot of drama, and Desi runs into her fair share of it.

This was a quirky, fun, read about a girl who struggles being a teenager. Every girl can relate to that feeling. She's unhappy about school, her job, and her friends. Falling across an add for a substitue princess sounds like a luxury almost every girl would be dying to take. She applies and lands the job... she learns several important lessons and realizes that even princesses have problems they'd like to escape.

After you read this you'll be googling for an application to be a substitue princess. The positive - You already know from Desi's experience that it won't be a walk in the park.

The GREAT news

Once reading this delicious tale you can purchase the second novel in the series, The Royal Treatment. This will set you up for the third in this trilogy, A Farewell to Charms.
