Prince Albert by Sabrina Paige

I feel like this book is the best guilty pleasure. I like my romances to have some element of forbidden in them, a little on the dirty side, with some kind of fun elements that normally raises the stakes. Well this book had it all. The guy she drunken marries in Vegas turns out not only to be her soon to be stepbrother, but he’s also a legitimate price, like for real. Add in the fact that he is the resident bad boy, who let’s just say the book title makes sense for and it results in a really fun and enjoyable book for me. I loved the forbidden romance aspect of this book, all the sneaking around that these two did. I mean their parents were never going to be on board with these two having any kind of relationship, and let’s just say we all know how to media loves a scandal, so basically almost the entire novel is a secret romance. But what also made this book so much fun to read is how on the fence Belle is when it comes to new stepbrother Albie. She fights her attraction to him as much as she can. But the chemistry is off the charts with these two, and let me tell you these two heat up the page. But even better than that Albie actually really helps Belle start to kind of step out of the demure girl shell she put herself in. And don’t get me […]

Compromising Kessen by Rachel Van Dyken

I love Rachel Van Dyken’s writing, I don’t know why or how she does it but I do love her writing. There are even some times after I finish reading one of her books and I think about the plot and I can’t help but notice it’s not normally something I would have really liked, but her writing style just makes it impossible for me not to like her stories. This first thing I think of when I think about this book is how cute it was, how much I laughed out loud, and how awesome the secondary characters were in this novel. So I really love Kessen, she’s super smart, she’s driven to do well in her career, she has a love of historical romance novels, and just in general she is fun to read. She ends up having to go to London for a “season” to appease her father if she wants to one day take over the family business, so she goes, although she is totally not for it. Christian works for her dad, but more than that he is also a future duke, and his family goes back a very long time, so much so that the historical novels that Kessen loves so much are all based on Christian’s family. Christian is not so much a fan of Kessen on principle, he’s polite, but he already has an idea of what she is going to be like in his head, only it turns out he is completely wrong.

Sheikh’s Scandal by Lucy Monroe

To be completely honest, I wasn’t sure what to expect with this book, the synopsis wasn’t exactly clear on that. From the front cover I assumed it would be modern times, but someone said it sounded more like a historical romance, so I wasn’t sure what to expect going in. Plus there was mention of a harem, so I was kind of expect that too. What I knew for sure was that it would be a love story involving a culture I am pretty unfamiliar with, so I was looking forward to having my questions answered. So first things first, since my expectations were unclear going in, I want to clear up some of the confusion I had going in. It’s definitely a modern times book, private jets, smart phones, and all. And while there are several references to there being a harem, one does not exist in this book, so if you coming into this book thinking there will be harem you will be quite disappointed. What I can tell you is this an Arabic culture romance, and it’s sweet and modern. So Liyah is an educated woman, college degree and all, and she comes to work at the London hotel in order to meet her father, the owner of said hotel. She is the chambermaid for the Sheikh and his entourage while he is staying at the hotel, and given that her mother was from the same country she has a good familiarity with the culture. After a […]
