Review: Lessons in Trust

Book Review: Lessons in Trust, by Kate Davies, 3 stars


Princess Lucia du Charbonneaux has worked hard to create her life of relative autonomy. But her new bodyguard refuses to play by her rules. Even worse than him cramping her style are the heated looks he gives her that threaten to melt her carefully constructed Ice Princess facade.
The princess may a royal pain, but Eric Delmonico is a professional, and he promised her brother he’d keep her safe. No matter how much sleeps he loses while protecting her sinfully sexy body, he’s determined to stay until the threat against her is neutralized.
When an attempt is made on Lucia's life, Eric whisks her away to where he can best keep her safe, but they have to learn to work together before Lucia's safety—and their connection—are lost forever.

Genre: contemporary romance

Publication date: August 2017

Mature content: yes

Review: After reading Lessons in Love and enjoying it very much, I decided to jump to book two in the Royals and Rebels series by Kate Davies. And, to be honest, I was a bit disappointed.

Lessons in Trust starts in a very promising way. Lucia is a fairly likable character and Eric is amazing as the alpha-ex-military type. Their first interactions are very funny, as are most of the dialogs. And then, at some point, the quality of the plot declines. I never really got the feeling that Lucia was in real danger. Even when Eric drives her away in a rush, nothing really bad seems to have happened - or at least if it did, it was not properly explained. The ending is rushed and I sort of failed to grasp the point where Lucia and Eric move from being in lust to being in love. 

Lessons in Trust is not overall bad, and if you're looking for a quick read and love happy endings, you may still want to give it a try, but I found it a bit weaker than book one.

Happy readings,
