Summary from Goodreads:
Olivia Davenport’s plan is destined to fail.

She is going through with it anyway, of course. After all, it is the chance of a lifetime. The unreasonable rules of others should not stand in her way.

In her small kingdom of Stewartsland, Olivia trains with the squires and harbors a secret dream. She longs to become a knight under the command of the Master-of–Arms, who just happens to be her father. He has indulged her passion so far, but they both know a simple fact – girls may not attain knighthood. Dismayed by the constant discouragement of her ambitions, she makes an impetuous decision to disguise herself as a boy in order to sneak on a mission. The consequences are not at all what she anticipated.

When her deception is revealed, she is sent home in disgrace; however, an unexpected turn of events puts her at the center of a dangerous plot against the King. The ensuing adventure finds her grappling with mercenaries and outlaws, yet these pale in comparison to her newly awakened emotions. She finds not only her life at risk, but also her heart, when the aloof Prince Liam begins to affect her in ways she never thought possible. In the end, it is her courage and unique spirit which must guide her through the challenges she encounters both physical and emotional.

About the Author
Reading was always a big part of my life. Creating my own stories developed out of this love. Finally, I decided to try my hand at writing a novel and that was when Not Every Girl was conceived.

I live in New Jersey with my husband, two sons and an extremely spoiled cat. When I am not running around with my family or writing, I can be found curled up with a good book and said cat. It is my belief that a good book, a loyal pet and anything made of chocolate can brighten just about any day.

{Rating} 4/5 - I really liked it!


A quick read with engaging characters, betrayal, unexpected allies, battles, friendship and romance. 

Not Every Girl wants to be a knight. Olivia does. Olivia is a great heroine - except for the way she gets herself onto the mission, that was seriously not cool - she's passionate, honest, dedicated, protective, and the very definition of brave. She also has a tendency to babble. I also liked Prince Liam. He can be a haughty prince but he's also a courageous fighter, a gallant protector and a sweet guy.

I enjoyed the romance between Olivia and Prince Liam. It's not love at first sight exactly, neither make a very good first impression but there is definitely an awareness of each other. Forced together on the journey and facing foes they develop a friendship that slowly deepens into a romantic relationship filled with respect and care. I liked them together, despite their differences of birth they have a lot in common and I think they brought out the best in each other.
