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 secrets…

You’re gorgeous. Clever. You call me out on my bullshit, and I bloody adore it.

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.


P.S.—I can’t send this. But I am thinking of you.

My Thoughts
Jessica Peterson’s version of the British Royal Family definitely needs help in the romantic stakes. This time around it’s Prince Robert.

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 question.

Royal Rebel is an easygoing read that offers a couple of hours of fun and escapism.
