I finally figured it out! This is a modern-day retelling of Anna and the King of Siam (or, if you prefer, Anna and the King, or The King and I). Bam! Nailed it!
By the way, now that I've figured out what I'm actually reading, I've started to enjoy myself a little. Hovering around three stars right now.
But I ask you, is there anything about that cover that says, Anna and the King of Siam?
