Review: Prince Charming

Book Review: Prince Charming, by CD Reiss, 4 stars


Keaton Bridge is one hundred percent bad boy.
Cassie doesn't need a boy and certainly not a bad one. Nope. She fights crime for a living, and everything about this guy screams trouble, from his charming British accent to his mysterious past.
And Cassie doesn't do trouble.
Keaton's got his own trouble. He's trying to go legit, and an FBI agent hanging around is the last thing that will help his credibility.
All it took was one night of passion to sear her into his skin. Now he can't imagine living happily ever after without her.
All they have to do is walk away.
But neither of them ever walks away from a challenge.

Genre: romantic suspense

Publication date: January 2018

Mature content: yes

Review: Prince Charming is probably one of the hardest books I've had to review lately. Mostly because there's no easy way to define it. It's pretty, it's dark and ugly, it's full of twists and turns, and even if you don't love it, you just can't get away from it. When it ends you are both relieved and sad to see it gone. That's what happened to me - I just couldn't put it down.

Keaton is a puzzle. One with a zillion pieces like those Cassie's grandmother loves to make. Early in the book you realize he's not exactly who he's supposed to be, but it takes a while to understand him; and when you think you have it all figured out -  well, you're wrong. There are many layers to peel before you get to the real man. Cassie was a bit harder to like, at least at the beginning, but in a way she's as multifaceted as Keaton. In fact, they make just the perfect pair.

I found the end a bit rushed and I had to read it twice to try to figure it out. Same as the epilogue which, despite the happy ending, seems a bit out of place with the rest of the book.

Also, I realize this may not be a book for everyone due to the explicit content and the sometimes less than appropriate language (both of which are sometimes a bit over the top, and unnecessarily so), but if you love romantic suspense and are not easily offended, I recommend you to read Prince Charming.

This was my first book by CD Reiss, but it will certainly not be my last.

Happy readings,
