R E V I E W ➠ Twisted Games by Ana Huang

(Twisted #2)


She can never be his…but he’s taking her anyway.
Stoic, broody, and arrogant, elite bodyguard Rhys Larsen has two rules: 1) Protect his clients at all costs 2) Do not become emotionally involved. Ever.
He has never once been tempted to break those rules…until her.
Bridget von Ascheberg. A princess with a stubborn streak that matches his own and a hidden fire that reduces his rules to ash. She’s nothing he expected and everything he never knew he needed.
Day by day, inch by inch, she breaks down his defenses until he’s faced with a truth he can no longer deny: he swore an oath to protect her, but all he wants is to ruin her. Take her.
Because she’s his.
His princess.
His forbidden fruit.
His every depraved fantasy.
Regal, strong-willed, and bound by the chains of duty, Princess Bridget dreams of the freedom to live and love as she chooses.
But when her brother abdicates, she’s suddenly faced with the prospect of a loveless, politically expedient marriage and a throne she never wanted.
And as she navigates the intricacies—and treacheries—of her new role, she must also hide her desire for a man she can’t have.
Her bodyguard.
Her protector.
Her ultimate ruin.
Unexpected and forbidden, theirs is a love that could destroy a kingdom…and doom them both.

Twisted Games is a contemporary royal bodyguard romance. It’s book two of the Twisted series but can be read as a standalone.
Warning: This book contains a possessive alpha hero, explicit sexual content, and profanity.

The moment Bridget von Ascheberg entered my life, I’d been on a countdown to destruction, and tonight might just be the night everything went to hell.

– Rhys

“You asked me if I’d ever been in love. I said no.” He pressed a soft kiss to my mouth.
“Ask me again, princess.”
My lungs constricted. Breathe.

Not my first read by the author but this is my 2nd book ever & I was waiting for it because the first one in this series blew me away. SAME! Is all I can say for this book!

Where do I begin? Oh, how about the fact that the HERO is not only broody, alpha, big, mean looking, sexy as sin, dirty, smart, loyal and protective! Yeah! That said this is a fairy tale story with a dirty twist! The hero Rhys is ex-military who now does Personal Security for a living. And he is one of the best. The heroine Bridget (yes I LOVE her freaking name for this) is well a Princess. When her old bodyguard needed to be replaced, in comes the hero. From the moment they met it was war. But all’s fair in love & war right?! That’s exactly what this delicious book was, slow burn, angst, enemy-to, dangerous, mystery…it really had it all and I was hanging on to every page like a little puppet just read for more. These two DO NOT get along, I think what they enjoyed the most is to rile each other up, one way by him calling the heroine PRINCESS and her calling the hero MR. LARSEN. But Rhys was there to do what he does best, so from the beginning he let’s her know what his rules are. But rules are meant to be broken, especially by a Princess.

What I enjoyed the most in this is the build up, every time you think something will happen either romantically or action wise you don’t get what you expect. I also loved the dedication, loyalty and ROMANCE in this! There were few bumps but I am happy to let you know that the hero is all about his princess and well he can be a demanding hard man. (pun intended) When these two meet in the love-circle SHEEEESH the steamy heat radar is off the charts with this one. I think I blushed at 1am reading this. Needles to say, it is a long read but a beautiful one. It run’s it’s course over a few years and there are so many new’s, twist and action…truly was PAGE GRIPPING!

I am slightly nervous for the next one because I have a feeling they might actually kill each other. Stella & Christian are next and let the fun begin! p.s. Stella is the Princess’s best friend and she was fun to interact with in this book. Christian is Rhys’s boss and a total A-HOLE MEAN type of Alpha. That’s all!

"Remember. In public, you're my princess, but in private, you're my whore." -Rhys
"You like getting you ass slapped while I pound that tight royal pussy with my hard cock?" -Rhys

P.S.S. I really enjoyed the Christmas BOUS SCENE, very 🔥

R E V I E W ➠ Taunting Callum by Kristen Proby

(Big Sky Royal #3)

His Royal Highness Callum Wakefield lives a carefree, luxurious life. As the King of England’s youngest son, and thus not the heir apparent, he has more freedom and less royal responsibilities. He spends his days traveling the world, indulging in the extravagance afforded by his family name. But after years of hopping from one country to the next, the place that holds the most appeal is Cunningham Falls, Montana. And the only woman on his mind is a fiery redhead with an infectious laugh
The one who hates him
Aspen Calhoun is the new owner of Drips & Sips. It’s taken her many years to find a place to belong, and she’s perfectly happy living a quiet life. Or she would be, if a certain prince would stop coming to town
Aspen and Callum shared one incredible night together two years ago before he returned to his opulent life, subsequently forgetting all about her. Ego bruised and pride wounded, Aspen doesn’t know why he’s back. And she doesn’t care. She refuses to fall for his charms again
But Callum is determined to stay in Cunningham Falls and make it up to Aspen, no matter how long it takes. Because while she was out of sight, she was most certainly not out of mind.

RELEASE DATE: August 25, 2020

Not my first read by the author, and I have read the other 2 books in this series. I gotta say that I loved each book and including this one. This is the youngest Prince and boy was he ROMANTIC & SWOONY!

This was a different kind of romance, because the hero and heroine had history before where they shared something beautiful until couple years later and well, their re-meeting does not go very well. Callum though has always thought about Aspen, but years apart and a lot of happening, got him a little confused. What I loved about these two is that they seem REAL, when things that you would think to pause and focus on, they just live and talk through. Their chemistry was sizzling yes but something real and different. Really romantic and swoony, a hard background for the heroine and Callum…he is a breath of fresh air. The bad-boy Prince minus the hoopla!
