Review: Princesses Don't Get Fat by Aya Ling (Giveaway)

Title: Princesses Don't Get Fat
Author: Aya Ling
Publication Date: January 2013

Synopsis: A fairy tale romance with a plus sized heroine and plenty of dessert.

Princess Valeria of Amaranta is fat, but she doesn’t care. All she wants is to eat a lot and lead an idle life. When it is apparent that she cannot get a husband, her mother decides to send her to the Royal Riviera Academy of Fighting Arts. For a chubby princess who has never picked up a sword, life at the Academy is akin to torture. Worst of all, the food is terrible.

When Valeria decides to improve Riviera cuisine by sneaking into the palace kitchens and giving orders, little does she know that the crown prince would take interest in her kitchen excursions. As they spend more time together, Valeria must decide whether she should become thin and attractive, or stay in the kitchens and remain fat.

Verdict: Princesses Don't Get Fat was absolutely delightful. Aya Ling has created a short n' sweet story about a Princess named Valeria who has a passion for food which has caused her to be on the chubby side. Her mother is trying to find a husband for her, but since she isn't skinny, she's having a hard time of it. After a competition for Valeria's hand turns disastrous, her mother decides that Valeria needs to lose some weight. So she sends her off to Riviera Royal Academy of Fighting Arts where she hopes Valeria will lose some weight. Her plan backfires however, when Valeria finds herself as the Riviera food taster for the royal kitchens and not a single pound is lost. But while at Riveria, Valeria befriends the Crown Prince Ralph, whom might become something more than a friend.....
I absolutely adored this story- Valeria was a true gem! And I'm looking forward to reading Aya Ling's other Princess story: Princesses Don't Fight in Skirts! <3
