Have you ever wished your were a princess? Or could just borrow their life for a day? Well…it’s not as easy as that. Charlotte and Leila from the DATE SHARK series are here to tell you why.
First, let’s meet Leila Sparrow, who just wanted to revamp her dating life, be treated like a princess, and stop being the perpetual last minute “plus one” because she was too nice to say no.
Even though Leila enjoys her work as a marketing manager for a popular clothing boutique, her boss’s absolute trust in her has turned into her being the only person allowed to handle a million different tasks each day. Leila and Ana are good friends, but at the end of the day, Leila feels a little like Cinderella trying to keep up with a houseful of demanding lunatics.
Even when Leila starts stepping out of her comfort zone and taking risks that she hopes will make her life better–like dating the adventuring loving Luke and befriending her dating coach Eli–things don’t go exactly as she hoped.
Luke may be incapable of sitting still for more than five minutes, but he’s fun and safe, in a strange way. Eli, on the other hand, is risky. Not only because he’s hiding something from Leila, but because figuring him out is harder than trying to get mice to make you a designer gown in real life. There’s a happily ever after waiting for Leila, but which path will get her there?
And let’s not forget Charlotte, who’s been through some really tough stuff, but this time she doesn’t know if she can survive without help.
Charlotte wasn’t raised by a wicked step-mother like Snow White was, but she’s experienced loss and hardship and abandonment, the kind that has the potential to truly make you crumble. She pulled through, and kept fighting, but things are quickly spinning out of control. The threat of death doesn’t come from a poison apple, but she’s facing losing her life all the same.
Snow White finds a band of dwarves to protect her and make friends with. Charlotte isn’t exactly looking for a hero, and to be perfectly honest, Guy Saint Laurent doesn’t really seem like the hero type, but a momentary wish to step out of her life, dress up like a princess, and just enjoy a night out with a friend leaves her with a choice. She terrified that Guy will leave when things really get rough, that accepting help will make her weaker, but if he stays…he could be everything Charlotte has ever wanted.

For me, it would be the constant scrutiny of every aspect of your life.
I don’t think I could take that either!
I have a hard time making decisions, so hearing appeals on rules/laws or deciding punishments would totally kill me! I would be easily swayed one way and then the other. I’m soooo indecisive! lilacqueen75 (at) gmail (dot) com
I probably wouldn’t like that part either!

That would definitely drive me nuts!!
Having to look good all the time.
I’d probably fail at that!
The worst to me, would be, not having my mom. Id be so lost without mine. In more disney movies, most princesses are momless or have an evil stepmom. I dont think i could handle either situation very well. Thank you! Great post! 🙂
That is very true about Disney princess mom’s! I’m glad you enjoyed the post 🙂 thanks for stopping by the blog hop!
