Title: Fragile Longing
Author: Cora Reilly
Sofia knows how it feels to be the consolation prize.
And definitely not an ice princess.
Her sister is—was all those things. Perfection. Until she wasn’t. Until she ran off to be with the enemy and left her fiancé behind.
Now Sofia is given to Danilo in her sister’s stead, knowing she’ll never be more than second best. Yet, she can’t stop longing for the love of the man she’s been crushing on even when he was still her sister’s.
Danilo is a man who’s used to getting what he wants.
The sought-after ice princess.
Until another man steals his bride-to-be. Danilo knows that for a man in his position losing his woman can lead to a loss of face.
Thirst for revenge.
A dangerous combination—one Danilo can’t leave behind, not even when a girl just as precious takes her sister’s place to placate him. Yet, she’s got one flaw: she’s not her sister.
Unable to forget what he’s lost, Danilo might lose what he’s been given.
Line and sinker.
If you have been following this storyline you will be hooked too!
‘But she was the consolation prize. We all knew it.’
Basically Sofia is the spare, a replacement. At first I wanted to cuddle Sofia so badly and punch Danilo right in the mush! But girl got claws!
But then Danilo surprised me too. He was beautiful!!
‘Where I was prideful , Sofia was humble. Where I was vengeful, she was forgiving. Where I was short-tempered, she was patient.’
I do need to add that I know this book was about Sofia but Anna really shone here. I need her story!
