**This title is NEW ADULT and not appropriate for teen readers**

Many thanks to Pan Macmillan for offering me an ARC of this title. Their generosity has no impact on my review.

I enjoyed this title and burned through it in one day. It’s a light-hearted semi-fairy tale of a young woman facing a life sentence in the prison known as Parkinson’s. Honestly, it reminded me a lot of the film Love and Other Drugs (2010 – Fox 2000 Pictures), except with a royalty twist and an Australian setting.

It’s a perfect romance for those seeking a happily ever after and loads of rolling in the hay. Personally I liked Marci’s buff trainer, Brendon, more than her love interest, Raph, but that’s just me. I was rooting for the gym-junkie from the beginning, though this is NOT a love triangle, which I was grateful for.

This is truly the story of one woman’s quest to find herself, now buried under the yoke of an incurable disease. And though most of her “self-discovering” is had while pinned under hot Aussie, Raph, she does learn to accept herself in the process. I think such wandering ways to self-acceptance often happen in the arms of someone else, for sometimes it is our lover that sees the beauty that we fail to recognize in the mirror.
