I received a review copy
Michele’s lack of focus in life hasn’t bothered her, until the day she finds herself with mounting credit card debt, unable to afford her rent, and without a job. While her meddling family questions how she can end up in this predicament, at the age of 29, and single to boot, Michele doesn’t want to admit the truth. All she wants to do is sew.
Faced with the prospect of moving back into her parents’ house, Michele throws a Hail Mary pass and applies for a TV design contest, Made for Me. In order to win the contest, Michele will have to compete with nine other contestants to design the new wardrobe for Duchess Maryn Medrovovich, who’s about to marry Prince Stephan of the United Republic of Montabago.
While in the seclusion of the show, Michele starts to realize where her focus in life should be, and what’s truly important to her. However, a dashing competitor might just cause her to lose her focus once and for all. Can Michele keep her eye on the prize while being true to herself?
Oh yes, was this ever the book for me! Adorable cover, first of all, but the plot sounded fantastic and so chick lit. Michele was a very real heroine, super relatable and I loved her! The reality show concept was so much fun to read about, the romance drama was a bit juicy, and I was guessing until the end what her outcome would be – in love and career! I also loved the royalty bit, as I’m a big royal watcher myself, so that was a lot of fun! Overall a fantastic, snappy chick lit read that I recommend!
