Book Review (& Author Giveaway): Hot Heir by Pippa Grant




Title: Hot Heir
Author: Pippa Grant
Genre: Sexy Romantic Comedy
 Release Date: August 31, 2018



Blurb

If I had to pick a bride of convenience, my first choice would NOT be Peach Maloney.
My fiftieth choice would NOT be Peach.
Top spot on my list of occupational hazards? Yes. 
Royal pain in the ass?  Yes.
A bride of convenience? No.
But I’ve unexpectedly gone from royal bodyguard to monarch, having inherited a crown that was stolen from my family long before my birth. The kicker of this unexpected royal gift? In order to take the throne I must find a wife.
Have I mentioned Peach would NOT have been my hundredth choice?
But I’ve no other options, and she needs a favor that my new position can fulfill quite nicely. So we’ve agreed to play the doting newlyweds out in public.
In private, though, our rules are simple:
No touching.
No talking.
And certainly no sex.
I should have known better than to marry a rule-breaking pain in the arse.

My Thoughts

With character names such as Peach and Papaya, pet alpacas masquerading as unicorns, hot air balloon thefts and smelly polecats, well, it can only be a Pippa Grant book! And in HOT HEIR we get another book with Pippa’s trademark zany antics and slapstick-style humour.

It’s Viktor and Peach’s turn this time. We have met them in previous books but this time, Viktor is no longer a royal bodyguard, and instead finds himself the heir of a European House of Royalty. Peach is still a hardworking business owner but finds herself the guardian of her 14 year old sister – a sister who is constantly finding trouble. Their individual circumstances dictate that both Viktor and Peach need get to married. They may find each other annoying, but at least they’re not strangers to one another, so why not marry each other. Only for the sake of convenience, of course.

On paper, Viktor and Peach are so very different. Their background, their experiences and even they way they talk is so diverse. Yet, there’s an attraction between them that neither can resist; an attraction that heats up nicely once they get started and leads to some very steamy times.

I much preferred the latter half of the book, especially the last quarter. I found the story much more focused on our main characters. At this point Viktor and Peach really begin to let down their guard with one another and we get some wonderful moments between them.

The first half of the book was more of a struggle. I felt there were too many competing storylines and characters that took my attention away from Viktor and Peach. I am glad I persevered because I finished the book on a high.

As always, there is plenty of humour and some wild adventures to be experienced.
