Enticing Daphne by Jessica Prince
Release Date: January 10th, 2018
Genre: Romantic Comedy
It’s easy to stop believing in happily ever afters when the man you thought you’d spend the rest of your life with abandons you right before your wedding day. After that disastrous event I decided that commitment was for suckers. I was young, successful, and in the prime of my life.
I didn’t need a man to make me happy.
Then an unexpected blast from the past came waltzing into my studio and decided I was a challenge he was more than willing to accept. The only problem is that he doesn’t remember he’s met me before.
He’s the ultimate playboy, determined to stop at nothing until he entices the hell out of me. But if Caleb McMannus thinks he can lure me in with his sinful looks and silver tongue, then he’s…probably right.
About the Author:
Born and raised around Houston Texas, Jessica spent most of her life complaining about the heat, humidity, and all around pain in the ass weather. It was only as an adult that she quickly realized the cost of living in Houston made up for not being able to breathe when she stepped outside. That’s why God created central air, after all.
Jessica is the mother of a perfect little boy–she refuses to accept that he inherited her attitude and sarcastic nature no matter what her husband says.
In addition to being a wife and mom, she’s also a wino, a coffee addict, and an avid lover of all types of books–romances still being her all time favs. Her husband likes to claim that reading is her obsession but she just says it’s a passion…there’s a difference. Not that she’d expect a boy to understand.
Jessica has been writing since she was a little girl, but thankfully grew out of drawing her own pictures for her stories before ever publishing her first book. Because an artist she is not.

I was introduced to Jessica’s work when I read a book she co-authored with Meghan Quinn – Hustler. I fell in love with her writing style and started to devour all of her books.
Enticing Daphne is the perfect romantic comedy. This story of Daphne and Caleb is fantastic! First off the alternate POV’s was fabulous! I absolutely loved the feistiness of Daphne and the suave swagger of Caleb.
Both of their backstories was so sad but so relatable and you could understand why both Daphne and Caleb were the way they were. The dysfunction of the parents of both Daphne and Caleb is horrible and especially Daphne’s mother, what a horrid person.
OK, now to the fun stuff! The humor in this story is phenomenal, especially Daphne’s inner dialogue (“That was it. I was kissing her as soon as this whole disaster was over. Unless that offended her”) I love books that make me actually laugh out loud. I scare my family sometimes, but they love me so they get over it!
Caleb’s silver tongue was stellar! He definitely was an expert at enticing! His inner dialogue was just as hilarious! (Her zero years of medical training didn’t provide me with confidence….) And when he had his “Ah ha” moment! Perfect!
I am going to have to get the other books that are loosely related to this book to get a better handle on all the awesome secondary characters that you just get a glimpse of in this book!
This book is classic Jessica Prince and you can’t go wrong to read it! It’s great!
