How to Lose a Fiancé, Book #2 in the Greek Billionaires contemporary romance series
by USA Today Bestselling author Stefanie London.
Dion Kourakis has come a long way from being an orphan with only a single friend to his name. Now he runs a billion-dollar investment company and has the respect of everyone in Europe. His charming personality covers a lot of emotional scars, including his desire to make his mentor proud. Dion doesn't exactly want a bride to go along with his next business deal, and he plans on letting the lass down gently when they meet...
Only, his future bride has turned out to be nothing like what he thought she'd be. She's quirky and has a habit of turning up to social events in strange outfits. It doesn't take a genius to figure out what she's up to, but the harder she tries to convince him she'd be an awful wife, the more he wants to convince her they'd be perfect together.

I thought this was an interesting story, from the synopsis it sounds like it could be a romantic comedy, but it's really not, and that surprised, but in a good way because the further I got into the story, the more I got pulled in and couldn't wait to see what was going to happen between Dion and Sophia.
First, Sophia's dad is a throwback to the 15th century apparently, especially the way he treats his wife and daughter. I really couldn't find fault with Sophia's plan when it came to Dion, and while I understand she went along with the plan because of her mother, she had to have realized her mother wasn't going to leave. But I also understand she was holding out hope for her mother.
Dion is the very epitome of self-made, given his childhood upbringing. He hadn't been really living the last few years, given he's been so focused on a plan involving the company's Sophia father is in charge of. I liked how their vastly different plans for their arranged marriage seemed to somehow bring them together.
Seeing his mentor, Elias, hooked up to half a dozen different machines after having a fall in his home, with tubes coming out of every orifice, had finally pushed him over the edge. Closure was now within Dion’s grasp, he could shut the final page of his father’s book. He wanted that feeling so bad he could taste it…so bad he would marry a stranger.
“We have plenty of time to get to know one another.” Dion motioned for her to follow him outside. “Your father told me that you’ve been working in the family business.”
“That’s right. I’ve been doing some general admin,” she replied. “And I have my own virtual assistant business, too.” The sun had set some time ago, but the lights dotted around the garden brightened the front of the house. He unlocked the car and held the door for her.
“Ah, so you’re a businesswoman. I’m sure we’ll have a lot to talk about, then.”
“Sure, although it’s not real passion in life, to be honest.” She looked at him expectantly, as though wanting an invitation to elaborate.
“What would you rather be doing?” he asked. The car’s engine rumbled as he pulled out of the circular path in front of the four-car garage. A warm breeze carried the salty tang of the ocean into the car.
“You know, I’m really passionate about taxidermy.” Sophia nodded as though this was the most normal thing to say. “There’s just something about animals that fascinates me.”
“Taxidermy?” He frowned. “Like, stuffing dead animals?”
“Stuffing or mounting,” she said. “It includes both.”
Was she for real? Her expression didn’t reveal even a sliver of amusement. “I see it as a way to prolong an animal’s life,” she explained. “I know it might seem a little strange, but trust me. When I bring my collection over, you’ll see how wonderful it is.”
He gulped. “Your collection?”
“Yes, I have a huge collection. Squirrels and racoons and a couple of cats that I found. Strays, you know. Lots of people think they have time for a pet and then they just dump them. I even have a fox. She’s a real beauty. I was thinking we could put her in the living room. Or maybe the foyer, so she can greet guests.” She clapped her hands together. “Baroness Sasha Foxington III would absolutely love that.”
Baroness. Sasha. Foxington the fucking third. Was he in a nightmare right now?
