Series: Royals United Duet #1
Author: Nana Malone
should have been the easiest assignment of my life.But Jessa isn’t your usual princess. She’s feisty, and sexy, and stubborn, and
gorgeous. Did I mention she hates me? From the moment I carried her over my
shoulder out of a bar fight, I’ve been persona non grata.
But the stakes are too high to mess this up. The monarchy is at risk.
I can’t stand Roone Scot.
There I said it. Shoot me.
We go together like lightening and water. His quiet, steady obstinance is going
to cost me my job. A job I have worked very hard to keep. No one is messing
this up for me. I’ve had enough crazy in my life.
Not to mention the way his eyes track me every time I move, makes me
uncomfortable in an I-need-my-batter-operated-boyfriend kind of way.
But even if I wanted him – which I don’t, but if I did – I can’t ever have him.
My life is not my own. I’ve known that since birth.
(Book 1 in the Royals United Duet)
Roone is a Royal Guard, former SAS and best friends with the now King of some Caribbean island and his brother. Roone and his partner Ariel have been assigned to London to protect Jessa, who doesn’t know she’s a princess and sister to the king and his brother. She works at a PR firm and is good at her job. She does not like Roone, and resents being stuck with him as a coworker and neighbor (undercover). But there are sparks neither one of them can deny, and the more time they spend with each other not fighting, the more they actually like each other.
Fair warning, this book does end with a cliffhanger and book 2 will be released in January.
What I liked: Jessa’s attitude, and her ability to handle herself. Roone is a good guy, and they are good for each other. He resents not being allowed to tell her the truth about who he is and why he’s there but does everything he can to keep her safe anyway.
What I didn’t like: This feels like book 2 or 3 in a series, and not book 1. The back story of Roone, Sebastian, and Lucas is referred to repeatedly in vague terms, but something big happened and we have no idea what. Also, hello cliffhanger! But I did know what I was getting into with this book so I can’t hate on that too badly.
Overall, a good, interesting read but you probably want to wait until the second book is out and read them back to back to avoid CliffHangover.
Rating: ♥♥♥ 1/2
things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she
borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious
thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.
With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner
Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own
characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime
works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as
sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.
The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle
and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books
list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.
Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working
hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances
for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding
in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and
puppy in sunny San Diego.
