"Prince of Frogs" by Barbara Plum

My Book Summary : In the flick of an eye your life can change ...

Ben has had to learn how to deal with that fact over the past eleven months since his wife passed away. Knowing the facts though doesn't change what happened, and the only way he is able to forget his heartache is by getting overly involved at work. However, now being a single father to a four-year-old, being a CEO, and dealing with his loss is becoming hard on him, even though he tries to get by.

Then one day, while standing in line at Starbucks, he meets an overly cheerful woman named Dr. Risa Taylor (nicknamed: La Ti Da), who suddenly turns his world upside down. Risa looks nothing like his Amy, but she is the first person to wake-him-up since his wife's death. What turns into a one time meeting, moves onto finding out they have mutual friends (one in particular who start playing matchmaker), and getting to know each other real fast within a short time period. What could be more perfect?

Risa on the other hand thinks it could be a little too perfect. In addition, with adopting three boys (Charlie, Tom, & Harry) within the next month by herself, she feels that no one (not even Ben) would want to take on the role as "boyfriend" for her and sub-daddy to her infant sons anytime soon. So ... what's the point? Can her best friend or Ben change her mind?

My Book Review : 3 out of 5 stars. It was a cute fairytale. Overly sweet and definitely a PG romance ... but I'm glad I read it. What actually held my attention was the background of both main characters and how wonderfully the author merged their tale.

Book Teaser :
Eyes closed, feet on his desk, he pinched the bridge of his nose. His bottom lip was on fire, and he knew he had to be careful. Go with safe topics, nothing sexy. No innuendos. "What's Molly wearing instead of a nightgown?"
"One of my T-shirts. It barely covers my bu--it's like a tent on her. But she loves it."
"I bet I never get her to sleep in nightgowns again."
"Oh, gosh. I'm sorry. I never thought---"
"Hey, I'm not complaining. Where's it written she has to sleep in nightgowns?"
"I did till about...thirteen. Then I switched to T-shirts. The ones with celebrities' faces plastered on them. I slept with Mick Jagger every other night."

Which song do I think goes along good with this book? : Fix You by Coldplay
