Author Jessica Peterson is taking the world of royal romance by storm. The first book in her Flings with Kings series was full of sweet and serious goodness. Prince Kit is the picture of royal duty. Em is his perfect match. And I didn’t know if I could love another couple more. Until Rob and Aly.
What is a prince to do when he’s been cast in a certain light his whole life? The younger, more playful brother of the crown prince, Rob has been told by a relative he admired and adored that he’s only fit to be a player. And so he makes it his duty to fulfill that role. Very. Well. He’s charming, for sure, but he’s a love ’em and leave ’em type and is certain that there can be nothing more in store for him. And he’s been performing the casanova role with Aly for several months now. Until Aly cuts him off, citing the need for a real relationship, which everyone knows Rob isn’t capable of. Right?
Alison Mason is getting her life in order. She’s taken over as CEO of EP Designs and after a whirlwind few months, she’s finally starting to settle into her new life in London. She’s been having “fun”, with Rob- in cars, pub bathrooms, and anywhere else that’s suitable for a quickie. But she’s looking for her “one”, and Rob can’t even commit to being hers for one night, so it’s time to move on. If she can.
From the hottest bathroom encounter I’ve ever read, to the absolutely most romantic boat ride on the Thames, Rob and Aly’s story is full of ups and downs. The playboy prince hides so much behind that facade. And Aly covers her feelings with her take- charge, I can do it all myself, persona. But when the two of them take the time to peel away the masks they don for the world, they discover who the other truly is. And they might not survive the revelation. My heart barely did.
