Media consultant Veronica St. John has been hired to teach a rugged Navy SEAL to impersonate a European prince who's been targeted by terrorists. But one conversation and Veronica knows there's no way she can turn streetwise New Yorker Joe Catalanotto into nobility. Joe, on the other hand, is confident he's got what it takes. Two days isn't a lot of time to get the job done...but it's enough time to fall in love.

Not only couldn't I finish it...........I only got through seven chapters. Kept hoping it would get better, but never did! The book is based on a silly plot which kept getting worse and worse. This is Pygmalion on speed!!............my first and last Brockmann book.
I wish I had read the reviews (or at least read this was a Harlequin book) before purchasing, but unfortunately, I did neither and bought the book, hoping for a light, fun listen. I lasted about an hour and a half, mainly out of a vain hope that it would get better. The majority of the 90 minutes was spent detailing an attraction between two characters; over and over and over and over. Mental note to self: next time you purchase a book, read the reviews first.
I don't really like it. Lots of internal dialog about what the two main characters think about each other, and not much else. Well, that's how it's been for a little over 4 hours of it. I'm starting to get annoyed with it. Hopefully things will get better.
Seldom is a book so bad on so many levels. The plot is ridiculous, the writing is banal, and the dialog is pathetic. Joe is supposed to be a tough Navy Seal with New Jersey working class roots, but he babbles on like Ernest Borgnine "Marty."
I'm in it for fun and my ability to suspend belief is elastic, but this one sounds like it was written by a girl in junior high.
