From the Desk of His
Royal Highness Prince Robert
Aly—can’t stop thinking about tonight. Never thought enemies like us
would end up naked together. Again. Know you think I’m cocky, but come on,
sweetheart…don’t tell me it’s not the best sex you’ve ever had.
I’m not a good man. But for the first time, I wish I were. Maybe then
I’d deserve you. I don’t. Not when I come from a family like mine. All these
You’re gorgeous. Clever. You call me out on my bullshit, and I bloody
I adore you, sweetheart.
You have your new bloke. And I’m…me. The playboy prince. We’re not
meant to be together. But staying away from you is killing me, Aly. Thinking
about him touching you is killing me.
I’ve no right to talk to you like this. Im sorry. It’s the whiskey
talking. This is what you do to me.
Jessica Peterson’s version of the British Royal Family
definitely needs help in the romantic stakes. This time around it’s Prince
Rob may be part of the Royal family, but as the “spare”
heir, we get a book that focuses on a private individual. This is something
that I enjoyed because Rob and Aly’s story is easily transferable to ordinary people.
It made both the characters more relatable.
As the Best Man and Maid of Honour in the upcoming wedding
of Crown Prince Kit and Emily, Rob and Aly find themselves spending a lot of
time together. It’s an awkward situation since Rob and Aly’s secret “friends with
benefits” relationship is a thing of the past. Aly is looking for a life
partner and Rob is definitely not interested.
With sex off the agenda, Rob and Aly find themselves
talking, debating, arguing and bickering. The sparks are flying but more
importantly, they are getting to know a different side to each other and are
questioning some of their own personal long held beliefs.
I really enjoyed reading about their time together and I was
impressed with how Rob handled himself. For a man who claims he has no interest
in a monogamous relationship, he is very good at it when Aly is the woman in
Royal Rebel is an easygoing read that offers a couple of
hours of fun and escapism.
Jessica Peterson began reading romance to escape the
decidedly unromantic awkwardness of her teenage years. Having found solace in
the likes of Mr. Darcy, Jamie Fraser (OMG love the gingers!), and Edward
Cullen, it wasn’t long before she began creating tall, dark and handsome heroes
of her own.
She lives in Charlotte, North Carolina with her husband, Mr.
Peterson, and her smelly Goldendoodle Martha Bean. She is the author of the
super sexy STUDY ABROAD and FLINGS WITH KINGS series. Check her out at www.jessicapeterson.com
