When he kissed me, I was shocked. He was a stranger and still so familiar. It wasn't until I woke up to my picture splashed on the cover of tabloids that I realized I knew who he was.
Prince Alexander of Cambridge.
Royal bad boy.
Exiled heir to the throne.
He isn't Prince Charming. He's controlling. He's demanding. He's dangerous. And I can't say no to him.
We both have secrets—secrets that could tear us apart or drive us closer together—and as the paparazzi exposes each one, I have to decide just how far I'm willing to go for King and Country.
For readers 18 and up due to mature, erotic scenarios.
"Because nothing beautiful can survive around me. Do you understand that? They'll destroy you, and if they don't, eventually I will."
I was hooked to this book from reading the synopsis. Then, the more I read the more & more hooked I got. This is Geneva Lee's debut book & what a way to start!! I loved the storyline, the characters, the supporting characters. OK, maybe not all of them but still. There was definite twists I never saw coming. The sex was wow!! It was hot, kinky, dirty, steamy & did I mention hot.. There were sometimes when there was too much sex. But, that was my only complaint.
Clara meets Alexander on the night of her graduation from college. He grabs her and kisses her to avoid someone. Clara didn't expect to wake up the next morning and having her picture on every tabloid & the paparazzi camped out in front of her new flat. Next thing she knows some guy in a suit is a her front door telling her Prince Alexander has sent him to come get her.
"I have many things I plan to do to this body. I want to take my time with it. I need to, so I'm not interested in playing games. If you want to be with me, I expect loyalty."
Now, she's face to face with Prince Alexander AKA Bad Boy of the Royal family. He is apologizing for the paparazzi and assures her he'll fix it. There is such a spark between Clara & Alexander that neither of them can explain or want to. Alexander tells her he doesn't do relationships but he can give her sex!! Good, hot sex that will leave her completely satisfied. Clara can not believe what she's hearing. She runs out never wanting to see him again.
That doesn't happen and she ends up at the fanciest most expensive hotel. The hotel is all about privacy and it's there where she starts to call him Mr.X. Which I loved!!!
"This compulsion is. You can push me away, Clara, and I'll still devote myself to protecting you."
During the next few weeks things between them get hot. And, I mean HOT. They have such amazing sex!! Alexander is very, very dominate when it comes to sex. He also has his walls up so high. He hasn't been the same ever since the car accident. Alexander has vowed to never love again, because everyone he loves ends up dead. Clara has her own demons she is fighting with. She has to set alarms to remind her to eat. Her ex-boyfriend did everything to break her. She's American but is a citizen in Britain. Her parents came into a lot of money. Clara doesn't ever have to work a day in her life. But, she's very independent & very strong willed women. Both Alexander & Clara know the other one has their demons. But, they never push the other one. They don't judge or look down on each other. Eventually they start falling for each other. They have a harder & harder time staying away.
"You are my religion, Clara Bishop. Sacred. Lovely. I want to worship you."
They end up back in the tabloids AGAIN!!!! Now, they are forced to meet the other one's family. Clara's family is def 10o% easier. Not a shocker there!! They go to Alex's county house for 3 days with his family.
Talk about wow!! They are so stuck up, snotty and just plain assholes!! Except for Alexander's brother. I LOVE LOVE LOVE him!! He was the only one that was nice to Clara and accepted her for who she was.
"I will never have my fill of you. I crave you, Clara. I crave your body, your taste. Without you........."
Over the next few days Alexander & Clara are pushed to the limit!! By everyone. Now, they must decide is their love enough to survive this. Should they stay together. Run away together. Or go separate ways..
"You asked if I would hurt you, Clara. I can't lie and say that I won't."
When I tell you that you'll love this book. I'm not kidding!! I can't wait for what's next for Prince Alexander.
“Alexander intoxicated me. Without his touch, I forgot how to breathe. He had become the center of gravity I returned to after being stretched past my limits.”
“If you run, Clara. I will follow you.”
