    Goodreads member Timendu probably has the best, most concise review of this with the simple "I did this to myself". I'll also add the dreaded: "I wasted an Audible credit on this crap!"Good merciful heavens this was stupid and I have no one to blame but myself. The title sounds like a cheesy porn and the content wasn't much more substantial. I am embarrassed for myself.Quick synopsis: The hero thinks he's better than the heroine and spends the book saying the most snobbish offensive things ever. The heroine takes it. Inside she's angry, but she NEVER defends herself. He's a prince, that's just how he is... PUKE.

    Esta es una relectura.Primero de todo: el prota merece una patada en las gónadas. Fuerte, que le duela, que le sirva para que no pueda reproducirse (?). Qué dennso este héroe, todo haciéndose el divo y mostrando la p¡ja grande y diciendo "mirá lo que es mi miembro, mirá lo que te vas a comer",como si nada. No, no. Bien puedo ponerlo en la categoría de los héroes de Jacqueline Baird, por lo tarado y egocéntrico.La protagonista es muy sumisa, muy boluda, pero al final sentí que hizo madurar al estúpido del héroe. Él le dice "Ven aquí, linda camarerita", y ella va sonriente. ¡Noo! Querete un poco, querida, hacelo laburar, no le des todo tan fácil, estuve gritándole durante toda la novela. No me escuchó, obviamente.

    This is the (as I've seen another reviewer's description of this type of book) douchebag hero type book. The "hero" is arrogant, sexist Mediterranean prince. The heroine a quiet, timid English rose who works in a hotel, who you'd think was finally going to properly stickup for herself (you'll get teased by her "sort of" actions) but no, she'll backdown. Yes, it all ends happily ever after but it was a struggle to get finish the (audio)book personally. The first Sharon Kendrick book I've had to struggle through.

    The hero was so silly and one dimensional I couldn't stop laughing. Plus a future epilogue without babies? Epic fail!

    The heroine was the doormat to rival all doormats in the world. The Hero was an absolute asshole who loved himself more than he loved the h tbh."Usually, he liked to run through an entire repertoire of his considerable sensual skills—something which completely captivated all his lovers. Women thought him unselfish, and in many ways he was—although he was always accused of holding back emotionally. But he was aware that giving them so much pleasure was also a kind of sexual boast—an innate need to surpass every other man that they might have known."WTF IS THIS GUYY?"Didn’t she realize that even a man of his calibre found her tight, lush body irresistible? Up until now those sinful curves had been woefully under-used—but not for much longer.""A place where he had been able to shrug off privilege and position with his biddable little virgin whom he’d transformed into a near-perfect lover. And another man would one day benefit from all his tuition, he thought—with a sudden and unexpected spear of jealousy."UGH THIS GUY JUST MADE ME SOO MAD!!!Wont be reading this author again anytime soon. LOL harlequins dont usually make me so angry...huh

    Asli gw baca novel ini tuh kayak nonton sinetron Indonesia yg ga berbobot. Siyok euy dg cerita SK yg ini. Berasa ga nerima gt gw dg karakter heroinenya yg "pelayan kamar" tp dideskripsi spt HBL (Haus belaian lelaki) sama bodohnya ga ketulungan. Apa yg dibilang si Hero walo itu nyakitin hatinya dan membuat harga dirinya jatuh, tetap aja nurutin apa kata si Hero...itu heroine apa toh weeeyyy *ketok kepala si Cathy,,trs jedutin ke tembok* #mendadakganasGw malah mo kasih 0.5 bintang krn emang emosi jiwanya luar biasa lihat si heroine ini legowo wae, tapi di ending cerita ada perlawanan walo cmn seletup doang makanya jd ksh 1 bintang aja deh.Tidak disarankan utk membaca novel ini *trs digebuk sama penerbitnya*

    Here's crossing toes, fingers & hair that the H/h don't have corpse to corpse chemistry a la Ralph Fiennes & JLo of "Maid in Manhattan" Hall of shame.

    Ok, this was much more what I was looking for when I decided I wanted books on domestic servants and the posh men who can’t resist them. Sharon Kendrick can reliably produce a hero who lives in his own fantasy world of royal entitlement, and a heroine who tolerates it for the great sex.Cathy wasn’t much chop at school, and is working as a chambermaid at a shabby pretentious hotel. One day her sexual-harassment-lawsuit-if-Cathy-could-be-bothered boss informs Cathy that their little hotel is expecting a royal visitor. No one you’ll have ever heard of, you common but alluring pair of boobs, her boss tells her. Cathy dutifully Googles the unknown royal, rather than proudly asserting that it’s her democratic right not to have heard of jumped up royals of made up countries no one cares about. Before she can check out pics, a sexy man in muddy jeans enters the hotel lobby.‘You cannot come in here dressed like that,’ Cathy says, embarrassed once again by the snobbish pretention of her horrible boss. She’s also a bit emotionally vulnerable, because her fiancé has broken up with her in a letter. He’s marrying another girl, on account of having got her preggers. Cathy’s not broken hearted, just really disappointed. Good thing a sexy man has turned up. The sexy man smoulders at her a little, and Cathy decides that he must be a tradie, so she takes him off to look at the room he’s to paint. Then they snog.The sexy man is Prince Xaviero, and I spent the remainder of my reading experience arguing with myself about how I was supposed to pronounce his name. If his made up island of gold mines had been close to Spain I’d have gone with an ‘h’ sound (and possibly still been wrong), but given he was born somewhere between Italy and Greece, it’s probably a ‘z’ sound, but how will I ever know for sure unless I stop being lazy and try looking it up? Such torture I endured.Anyway, Xaviero is instantly attracted to Cathy’s blonde hair and tight little shape and alluring boobs. He is going to tap that. She will be on her knees, oh yes, for he’s sure he can charm her and get some of that downtown action. Except, girls who immediately melt into his arms are too easy, it’s just not right. ‘I want a bit of fight, next time,’ he tells Cathy. She’s remarkably sanguine in the face of this, the first of his many insults.In fact, Cathy is a master at tactical ignoring. Sure, maybe sometimes she should have taken Xaviero to task for being disgusting, but then she might have had to spend time arguing rather than having great sex, and Cathy is a woman with her priorities straight. Her turn on is great sex not hate sex.Look, I suppose Cathy might seem like a bit of a doormat. She does put her man’s needs above her own, but I chose to see her as a woman with subtle strengths. She wasn’t wailing about how terribly neglected and badly treated she was, even though she was doing everything for a man who would never love her as much as she loved him. She was incredibly resilient, and I liked her. She was also a gardener, which is something I can’t do but think is fairly amazing, and she took every new experience Xaviero threw at her in her stride.Xaviero is cartoonish in his male arrogance. He doesn’t quite top Kaliq from ‘The Playboy Sheikh’s Virgin Stable-Girl’ because it turns out he has some semi-human qualities, but he comes close. He skates a really fine line between being amusingly arrogant and verbally abusive. My comfort factor with them is that I’ve never picked up an undertone of violence beneath their arrogance, and they are super into making sure a woman has the best sex of her life, because they believe (bless them) that this adds authenticity to their reputations as lovers.I couldn’t take Xaviero seriously. I think possibly I was conflating him with Rogelio from Jane the Virgin, so even at his worst I thought he was just on the edge of being outrageously charming. A couple of halfway decent emotional moments towards the end were enough to keep me happy, and I just enjoyed how funny he was. Although there was no sneering hussy to make Cathy feel like a dirty ignorant peasant, this book was exactly what I was in the mood to read, and I enjoyed it heaps.

    Really, I should have know better when I only picked the book up because the fictional kingdom and prince's name sounded so batshit that I couldn't not read more, that this wasn't going to be a great read.Prince Xaviero of Zaffirinthos is an arrogant asshat. He feels he's being charitable offering to train sweet and innocent chambermaid Cathy in the ways of lovemaking. However, after their tryst is over, the neither one can forget the other, so when Xaviero suddenly finds himself with new responsibilities, he uses it as an excuse to bring Cathy back into his life.Honestly, through most of the book he's insufferable and Cathy lets him get away with it too much. There were just enough threads of true attachment weaved in, though, that I bought the ultimate resolution, but just barely. If this overbearing arrogant jerk thing, is what you like, you might enjoy this more than I did.

    The heroine was a bit (ok more than a little) lacking in self respect for most of the story and the hero was extremely arrogant and a jerk towards the heroine but at least her backbone came back towards the end of the story when she wasn't willing to take any more of the hero's insults, arrogance and coldness (to her it never seemed like their relationship was anything more than physical). Besides the hero admitted to his feelings and wasn't willing to let go of her anymore.Why 4 stars? Because it seemed like they learned something in the end of the story, that is, she found her backbone while he let go of his insecurities and not only admitted to his feelings but also acted out on them but the most important part is that the story for some reason, kept me interested from the beginning till the end.

    O.K. Έχω διαβάσει κι άλλα άρλεκιν με αλαζόνες ήρωες και ηρωίδες που γίνονται χαλί να τους πατήσεις ... Αλλά ειλικρινά αυτό το συγκεκριμένο με εκνεύρισε απίστευτα!!!!!!Σε ορισμένα σημεία το μόνο που με σταμάτησε από το να το αφήσω από τα χέρια μου, είναι η εμμονή μου να μην αφήνω τίποτα στη μέση γιατί μερικές φορές η ανατροπή έρχεται στο τέλος.Ναι, ο ήρωας ήταν πρίγκιπας και η ηρωίδα καμαριέρα! Αλλά εντάξει όλα τα πράγματα έχουν και τα όριά τους! Εκνευρίστηκα πολύ με την ηρωίδα, η οποία ανεχόταν μέχρις εσχάτων την αλαζονική και αγενής συμπεριφορά του ήρωα χωρίς ίχνος αξιοπρέπειας ή εγωισμού ... Είπαμε, να αγαπήσεις αλλά αυτό ήταν το κάτι άλλο ...Ευτυχώς με αποζημίωσε το τέλος της ιστορίας, και ..... οι ερωτικές σκηνές!!! χαχαχαχα .... Δυστυχώς, ήταν κάτι που με εξέπληξε όχι ευχάριστα από τη συγκεκριμένη αγαπημένη μου συγγραφέα!!!

    Synopsis - When Prince Xaviero of Zaffirinthos stays in the hotel where Cathy works she’s assigned a lion’s share of the necessary renovation work, from painting the walls to upgrading her own appearance. An orphan raised by a spinster great-aunt, she never learned to play up her appearance with make-up and stylish clothing, but her leering boss takes the prince’s visit as an opportunity to dress her in a uniform that overemphasizes her generous curves and to generally put her on display against her wishes. Cinderella Cathy does, in fact, capture the prince’s notice. Hijinks ensue.Review - I read this before and re-reading the first few pages did not inspire me to continue.

    Well, I sure read these out of order, but what a wonderful story! These royal men are pompous, arrogant, and very alpha men. It is nice to see that even though station is very restrictive and doesn't equate to airheads just running amok like irresponsible trust fund babies on spring break, that even these very snobbish men can be brought to an all real level of reality with these very lovely ladies of genuine stature and character!

    Awful. Super arrogant prince, respect nobody, who dreams to be ordinary common people and a half wits girl who actually loved being treated like a doormat! A great combo! I would shred the book in pieces!

    Usually i'd spend time writing an actual review for a book. I just have nothing really to say about this one. It was just lame. The characters were flat, the plot was predictable and stupid and overall I just feel like this was a waste of time.

    This was an excellent quick read. 3.5. Even though the Hero was quite an ass. His stubborn pride made it hard for him to admit his love. Royalty minutia and rules made him continue to be a jerk. The heroine was just too compliant almost being ridiculous but woke up.

    Wow, really? It's a wonder how a woman so silly with such low self esteem and a man so arrogant and supercilious could fall in love. They are both horrible people who, if they were real, would need to be put down to save the world from their inanity.
