This is the first in a two book series, so be prepared for a cliffhanger! But despite hating cliffhangers, this was a good read. Mystery, intrigue, romance, and some interesting life situations make this a fast paced read. Add in that you get to reconnect with many of Ms. Malone’s past characters and you have a great world building book.

This reads as a bodyguard/nanny romance, but the beginning had me guessing if we didn’t get to see Ariel with a happily ever after before moving to Jax and Neela. As a parent, it made me sad for the baby who lost her mother, but glad that a guardian had been named, and all the boring and heartbreaking legal things laid out to take care of Mayzie.

Neela is a business owner going through a tough time in love-dealing with a breakup that also is affecting her business. And then she’s named the guardian of her friend’s baby. And while that’s all a lot for a person to deal with, she does so in ways that are relatable and understandable and justified. I liked her as a person and as a mother. I loved how we were introduced to Jax through Ariel; a man scorned by love and trying to get back on track with his life. He’s hardworking, even if he has be temporarily labeled a “manny.”

One of the reasons I liked Neela so much is her reaction to Jax. Realizing he’s hot, and acting like a total doofus. Because I’m pretty sure that’s how I’d be. And her internal monologue is laugh out loud funny! Jax’s is as well, from the male viewpoint. So they chemistry is there, despite them trying to be professional and deny it. And when they finally let their guard down, despite some bad situations happening, the writing is sensual and well done, and I liked their interactions.

Ms. Malone has a fairly predictable and even writing style. Nice and easy to enjoy and follow, but with lots of mystery and unknowns. It didn’t totally suck me in, but I think this has been one of my favorite books of hers so far.

Conclusion - Recap how you felt about the book. Will you read other books by this author? Would you recommend this book to others? Final thoughts on book.

To get the most out of this book, I would recommend reading the Royals Undercover, Royals Undone, Royals United, and Royal Elite books. You will get a better picture of the entire character universe and the references to other characters will make more sense. I’m can’t wait to see what Neela uncovers and how book two ends!

Author Bio

USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all
things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she
borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious
thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner
Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own
characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime
works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as
sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle
and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books
list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working
hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances
for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding
in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and
puppy in sunny San Diego.
