Description

A crown princess living a dangerous double life and a sinfully sexy Russian billionaire with a ruthless penchant for collecting secrets: a match set for disaster.

For years, one man has ruled Sophia’s fantasies. The harmless obsession keeps her warm on the nights her double life starts to take its toll. She, unfortunately, gains his attention at the worst possible moment, when she’s in the middle of a dangerous job. Now, she’ll be forced to protect her heart along with her life of lies.

Viktor has been tempted by the innocent princess’s lust-filled glances for far too long, and he has fought hard to resist her beauty. When her secrets finally draw him in, getting through her royal guard proves a minor inconvenience. But one sexually charged night isn’t enough. He wants more, including whatever she’s hiding beneath that demure façade.

As much as Sophia wants Viktor, she can never fully allow him in because her secrets aren’t her own. Viktor is determined to have all of his princess. Will they find a way to be together, or will her dangerous secrets tear them apart?

Honestly even without the racy sexual side of this story, it would still be an intriguing premise and idea that the author is writing about. Definitely not for under the age of eighteen ;) The sexual scenes do not detract from the overall plot or overwhelm which can be hard not to do in this type of genre. These scenes are fun, slightly unrealistic but written very well and the reader can't help but enjoy them. One story aspect that I would love to read more about besides the rest of the series that I am eagerly looking forward too is a prequel about the start of the group/business that the readers are immediately introduced too by the protagonist. The idea of these rich girls becoming essentially vigilantes against this list of evil people and what they decided to do about it is such an intriguing concept. This is a fun, sexy romp with some deep undertones and it just flies by and leaves you with a little tease of the future books that makes you want more.

A big thank you to NetGalley and Victory Editing NetGalley Co-op for the ARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. This is the first in a series. I found the title misleading, she is not mercenary. I actually really enjoyed the book. Is it realistic? Probably not but who cares. It is nice to think that maybe rich spoiled people do care about things. The chemistry between Sophia and Viktor was off the charts. Sigh, we all want that kind of chemistry. Her family is horrible, just saying. Luckily she has amazing friends. I loved her bodyguard Jen as well. Strong female role models, such fun. 4 stars I would highly recommend this book.

4/5 stars 3.5/5 spice Came for the spice and stayed for the plot! I really really enjoyed this book. It was a quick and easy read which I binged in a day and I think that anyone looking for that dark, almost mafia romance will enjoy this book The book just fell short of that five stars for me but it by no means is a reason to not ready this book! First little irk— Would I call Sofia a mercenary? No probably not, more like a spy…? This little factor doesn’t come into play very much but it was brought up enough that I think it needs to be mentioned. Second irk — the story line was a little predictable, but it was such an enjoyable read that I wasn’t bothered by it all that much. On the other hand, the things I loved about this book! I loved the chemistry and the passion between Viktor and Sofia. They were a great couple who bounced off each other well. I loved the forbidden romance side and how that served to play such an intense dynamic between the two of them. In addition, the surrounding characters we’re all incredibly interesting. Their part in the story weaves in an out with Sofia mainly, but their roles seemed to suggest big things for later in the series. With that being said, I can see the natural progression that the series is going to take and I’m so excited to read more in future.

Phew 🥵🥵🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶 I need to get myself a Russian! I got Alais/Mafia meets 50 shades (but a million times better) vibes! The spice did not take away from the plot and i loved how all the little details fell into place. The characters had enough back ground information to make them interesting, I hope we get to see more Jen and Ivan. Special thanks to NetGalley, the publisher and the author for a free, electronic ARC of this novel received in exchange for an honest review
