What happens when you mix an average American woman with a decidedly not average future King?
I can tell you from experience—a whole lot of complications.
You see, four months ago, my all-American sister, Kelsey, found out that she’s not actually my sister—she’s a princess of a country we’d never heard of. She begged me to come along when she was whisked off to her new palace, so here I am. An outsider who doesn’t fit in anywhere.
Now that she’s settled, I should go back to my exciting new career in New York. I absolutely should not stay in a country where I got shot (long story), where I suck so badly at the national sport that I accidentally murdered the symbol of the monarchy in front of half the country, and—oh yeah—where I can’t stop ogling Kelsey’s actual brother.
The Crown Prince.
The man who has to marry a very important princess. (not me)
The man who must create the next heir to the throne. (without me)
The man I absolutely can never be with. (remember that long story?)
The man who just gave me the best sex of my life…
Did I mention that it’s complicated?
NICUnurse’s Review of Tempting the Prince by Christi Barth
Tempting the Prince is the third book in the Sexy Misadventures of Royals series. I’m assuming they are all written as stand-alone titles because I haven’t read any other books in the series and I had no problems following the storyline. The author did a good job filling in the blanks without being too heavy on the backstory.
What I liked about the book: It’s kind of like a grown-up, sexier, and edgier version of A Christmas Prince, and that’s one of my favorite movies. I watch it year-round, over and over again.
NICUnurse’s Rating: Christi Barth is a new-to-me author, but I love finding new authors that I fall in love with their writing so it was an easy choice whether or not to read this book. Reading new authors is always a gamble, but in this instance, I was definitely the winner. Despite the fact that I began the series at the end (for now???), I had no issues figuring out the sum of the previous 2 books. And I enjoyed it enough that I’ve added the first 2 books to my TBR. The characters were easy to get to know and the storyline flowed well. My heart broke for Mallory. She’s on this emotional rollercoaster not of her own making, for the most part, and trying to figure out what her next steps should be all while grieving a future she thought she had all figured out. And Prince Christian is also dealing with a lot of the same issues in a different way, so my heart went out to him, as well. While there are sexy and light-hearted moments, this book also touches on some very heavy topics like grief and depression. The author managed to balance the sexy, light-hearted, and heavy times very well so that it didn’t feel overwhelmingly dark. Overall, I was pleasantly pleased with the story, and I’ll definitely be looking to read more of Christi Barth’s works.
I give Tempting the Prince by Christi Barth 4 out of 5 propellers!
