Princess Gone Wild!

When Princess Rosalina discovers her fiancé cheating on her, she's done being dutiful. Jumping on a plane, she lands five thousand miles away in a world of hot cowboys, jean skirts, and tequila. Grabbing her chance to fly under the radar, she plans on acting out every single fantasy she's denied herself while trying to meet the expectations of her family and country.

Brodie Bowie doesn't know what happened. One minute he's wreaking havoc and tearing up the slopes with his brothers, and the next he's an outsider. All of them are in serious relationships. He just can't figure out why they'd put a ring on it when there's so much fun to be had as a single man.

Brodie's not the settling down type, but then he's never met anyone like the woman who jumps in front of his bulldozer, refusing to let him dig up his meadow. The feisty chemist and perfumer is everything he never knew he wanted.

Except she only wants a summer fling before she goes back to her real a princess.

He doesn't fit in her world, and there's no way she can live in his.

But a love like theirs doesn't play by the rules.

Beautiful journey to find love while battling the issue of duty versus dreams. Rosalina is expected to marry and produce an heir to continue the monarchy in her country. Just as these wheels begin to move, she finds out the man she thought she loved is cheating on her. This sends her to Calamity for a dress fitting which ends up leading her to a new variation of a flower which puts her in the lab to make a new scent. Meeting Brodie Bowie is unexpected but he shares her passion for new ideas which makes them great partners. Brodie is an idea man but has got a reputation for not following through. As he begins to work with Rosie, it forces him to look deep at the direction his life is taking. As he watches her battle desire to be a perfumer with the duty her family requires, he realizes that maybe he hasn’t made all the best decisions. These two incredibly talented and driven people become the perfect balance to help each other follow their true passions. I enjoyed the challenges that they both faced and how their relationship wasn’t easy even though their chemistry was electric.

THE RELUCTANT BOYFRIEND is the fourth instalment in Erika Kelly’s contemporary adult BAD BOYFRIEND focusing on the Bowie siblings and family. This is Princess Rosalina Anais Isabella Villeneuve, and Brodie Bowie’s story line. THE RELUCTANT BOYFRIEND can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalment is revealed where necessary. Told from dual third person perspectives ( Rosalina and Brodie) THE RELUCTANT BOYFRIEND follows the forbidden relationship between twenty-five year old Princess Rosalina, and Brodie Bowie. After catching her fiancé in the arms of another woman, Princess Rosalina heads to Calamity, Wyoming under the guise of a wedding dress fitting, in search of something different and new. Meeting cowboy Brodie Bowie stirs something deep within our story line heroine, something she is desperate to experience but knows could destroy the family back home. What ensues is the building relationship and romance between Brodie and Rosalina, and the potential fall-out as Rosalina’s time in America draws to a close. Rosalina knows duty comes before love but finding the man she was to marry lusting after someone else sent Rosalina in search of something new and exciting. A chemist and perfumer by trade, Rosalina discovers the perfect flower and fragrance in Calamity, Wyoming but perfection is pushed aside by the people back home. Brodie Bowie is quickly falling for the woman who is currently hiding in Calamity Wyoming. Having watched his siblings fall in love Brodie struggles with wanting it all with a woman who may never be his to call his own. The relationship between Brodie and Rosalina is one of immediate attraction but Rosalina knows her time in America will come to an end. Falling in love was never in the plans but an emergency back home forces Rosalina out of Brodie’s life, and possibly into the arms of the man who broke her heart. The $ex scenes are intimate and passionate, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are reintroduced to Brodie’s brothers Fin Bowie and Calli (The World’s Worst Boyfriend #1); Will Bowie, Delilah and Ruby (the Heartless Boyfriend #2), Gray Bowie and Knox Holliday (The Careless Boyfriend #3); Rosalina’s parents Prince Albert and Princess Sophia and her sister Genevieve, as well as Rosalina’s former fiancé Marcel, and her assistant Fabiana. THE RELUCTANT BOYFRIEND is a story of family, friendships, duty, betrayal and love. The premise is engaging and captivating; the romance is seductive and steamy; the characters are strong-willed, energetic and fun. THE RELUCTANT BOYFRIEND is an animated, spicy and heart warming story of life, love and happily ever after.

Less than perfect has never hurt so good. The wait is over, but the fun has just begun. With The Bad Boyfriend series, Kelly doesn't shy away from charming. She captivates with delectable characters that wrap themselves around a heart. The Bodie Brothers are clueless when it comes to romance, but all in when it comes to falling in love. From the first hello to the final goodbye, Rosalind and Brodie are a match made out of the unpredictable, but the sweetest kind of heaven. The Reluctant Boyfriend is the perfect example of why I am hooked on this series. SWOONWORTHY READ!
