Elizabeth Stevens’ Lady in Training, the second book in the I’m No Princess series, continues with Anya adjusting to royal life. No longer in the king’s palace, Anya is now at her family’s estate. With the media constantly talking about her rumored romance to either Prince Nico or Prince Dmitri, Anya is just trying to live her life and spend time with her family. Even though she begins to become close friends with Nico, she also is still trying to ignore her growing feelings for Dmitri. To make matters even more complicated, Dmitri is supposed to be announcing his engagement, and now there is another female vying for his attention.
Elizabeth Stevens never disappoints. I am now two books into this novella series, and I am thoroughly enjoying myself. I enjoyed seeing a more grown-up Anya. While she still has her unique fashion sense, in-your-face attitude, and clumsy tendencies, she has matured and is learning her role in this new life of hers. Starting in the first chapter, I was very proud of her, and it’s so nice to see her become this admirable young woman while still being herself. This book also had a bit more romance than the first, and it had me smiling the entire time. I also loved the family dynamics in this book. We witness more family time with not only Anya’s sister and father but her visiting mother as well. It was all very heartwarming, and I honestly just wanted more. Lady in Training is a cute, light read that is short and sweet and will make you want to jump right into the next book.
