I've been a big fan of Stefanie London ever since I read her Bad Bachelors series. She writes fun contemporary romances that are super swoony to boot. I loved the concept of How to Lose a Fiance, so I knew I had to try it. I mean, what's not to like with a story of a woman trying to get her fiance to dump her?

Sophia has spent most of her life keeping her family by basically being a puppet in her father's hands. She does everything that he asks of her without a word, but this time around he has gone too far. He has arranged her marriage without her consent to a Greek billionaire who is also helping save their family company. Sophia has no say in the matter, but she won't go down without a fight. She heads off to Greece with plans of having her new fiance dump her. Will she be successful? You'll have to read the book to find out! I had mixed feelings about Sophia. I felt for her and I understood why she was so frustrated with her situations, but at times, I found her actions to be childish. She acted like the worst possible version of what she thinks a bad wife would be like. When she gave up her front though, I found her more likable.

Perhaps my feelings of annoyance towards Sophia stemmed from Dion, her fiance being such a good guy. Dion grew up an orphan and has worked hard to become a billionaire. He has his reasons for agreeing to marry Sophia that have to do with his mentor who really made him the man he was. I liked Dion a lot. Even when Sophia kept embarrassing him in public, he showed her nothing but kindness and thoughtfulness. Once these two started bonding, the romance was super sweet. I wouldn't call it as memorable as Bad Reputation, my favorite book from the author, but I still enjoyed it.

In the end, I liked How to Lose a Fiance, but it's not one I loved. If you're in the mood for something fun and light this summer, I'd give this a try.
