“The Reluctant Royals series returns with a good girl searching for the life that’s not too big, and not too small, and the bad boy prince who might be just right for her…

Nya Jerami fled Thesolo for the glitz and glamour of NYC but discovered that her Prince Charming only exists in her virtual dating games. When Nya returns home for a royal wedding, she accidentally finds herself up close and personal—in bed—with the real-life celebrity prince who she loves to hate.

For Johan von Braustein, the red-headed step-prince of Liechtienbourg, acting as paparazzi bait is a ruse that protects his brother—the heir to the throne—and his own heart. When a royal referendum threatens his brother’s future, a fake engagement is the perfect way to keep the cameras on him.

Nya and Johan both have good reasons to avoid love, but as desires are laid bare behind palace doors, they must decide if their fake romance will lead to a happily-ever-after.”



I was given this ARC prior to reading the first two books and would have read it without reading them if not for my best friend loaning me her coveted Alyssa Cole novels. Each book consecutively gets better and better! I adored this novel as Nya is a character I can empathize with, in regards to her introverted-ness. This book teaches the reader that our public face is not necessarily who we really are.

Both of the main characters in this novel, Johan and Nya were introduced in the first two books, but we really get to see them shine here. I whole-heartedly recommend this book, but more importantly the whole series!

About the Author

“Alyssa Cole is a science editor, pop culture nerd, and romance junkie who splits her time between fast-paced NYC and island-paced life in the Caribbean.

In addition to writing, she has hosted a romance book club and taught romance writing at the Jefferson Market Library in NYC. When she’s not busy writing, traveling, and learning French, she can be found watching cat videos on the Internet with her real-life romance hero.”


I received this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.
