Overview


Being the best friend to a prince isn't all it's cracked up to be. As attorney and spokesperson for the royal Andraste family, Richard Prentiss lives under a microscope. Fair or not, he's not able to date like a regular person. So when his personal assistant retires, Richard knows her pretty replacement, Kate, is strictly off-limits.

Kate Braddock's resume includes special forces training and enough profiling work to pick a threat out of a crowd. None of that prepares her to resist the charming, down-to-earth attorney she's assigned to protect. Determined to treat him like any other body to guard, she struggles to maintain her distance. It's her job to step in front of the bullet with Richard's name on it, nothing more.

When threats against the royal family take a deadly turn and his new assistant foils two attempts on his life, Richard's grateful—and more than a little intrigued. There's more to Kate than meets the eye, but what is she hiding? He'll have to trust her with his life when the danger proves to be closer than either realized…

    The author has been a Must Read for a long time and this story i

    The author has been a Must Read for a long time and this story is exhibit A as to why. In a roll-reversal, this tender yet passionate romance between two capable, deftly drawn characters enabled me to sink down into a story that kept me engaged and left me satisfied in the end.

    This is the third book in the series. Somehow I missed the second one after having read the first, but the references back to what went on in the second book allowed me to navigate this book out of order just fine. I will of course remedy this oversight the first chance I get.

    The story opens with Prince Armand's best friend and lawyer, Richard Prentiss, refusing the security detail that Armand set on him after the hit and run accident that almost ended his life. Richard hates the idea of always being under surveillance even if it is for his own good because of his past and even because of some of his discreet present activities. Armand loves him like a brother and still believes Richard is in danger. He doesn't want to lose him so he honor's Richard's wish by pulling back the overt security and in its place installs a hidden specialist.

    Kate learns from her boss that the Prince is transferring her off his fiancé to his best friend. She will take up the guise of Richard's legal assistant which will keep her in close proximity to him much of his day as he works long hours. From almost the moment, Kate started watching after Richard, she struggled to see him as just a job. It was not long after watching the way he worked hard and cared about his clients and his charity work that she knew that she was compromised and struggled to remain objective. Richard doesn't help matters in that he is strongly attracted to her too. As with everything else, the man is a force of nature and works past her defenses. She's living a lie even if her feelings are real and Richard's past has made lies particularly abhorrent to him so she knows that her attraction will only end in heartbreak. The knowledge that she loves Richard only redoubles her efforts to keep him safe- putting her own life on the line- even though someone is determined to take him out.

    As I noted above, this was a roll-reversal story. The woman is the skilled warrior-protector and the man is the one whose strength is in his heart and care for others. I loved how this dynamic felt natural and really worked in this story without unbalancing the romance or the character development. The problem of Kate having to continue the lie about her job to keep Richard safe was yet another strong piece to the plot. It was neat to see the brotherly love and friendship between Armand and Richard even if Armand's overbearing personality annoyed the heck out of Richard and Richard's need for independence worried Armand to death.

    And the romance development? These two were just right for each other and fit so well together that I eagerly read through their scenes as the tension increased toward the big reveal. There was this huge problem looming on the horizon when Richard would eventually learn the truth and I both anticipated and dreaded it just as Kate did. They were so mature though that I knew I didn't have to fear that it would overbalance into too much wallowing and angst. The action element of the story balanced with their romance helped.

    So, my concluding thoughts are that this story didn't have a weak point and I look forward to more of this series and more from this author period. The witty dialogue, nicely paced development, tender moments and hot passion were so strong and well-done.

    I would suggest this story/series is for those who enjoy contemporary romance that gives a strong plotted easy read storyline and passionate romantic characters.

    My thanks to Net Galley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Richard Prentiss has been my favorite secondary character and I

    Richard Prentiss has been my favorite secondary character and I was thrilled to see he finally got his chance to shine.  This is a truly fun book.  True there are some serious issues that are addressed but the chemistry and banter between Richard and Kate is just fantastic.  I read this in one sitting and am seriously considering sitting down and re-reading it because I enjoyed my time with them so much.  You can read this book separate from the rest of the Going Royal books Some Like it Royal - Going Royal, #1 and Some Like It Scandalous - Going Royal, #2 but In My Humble Opinion you will enjoy this more if you have at least read Some Like It Scandalous - Going Royal, #2.
