The second book in the Filthy Trilogy, more information coming soon...
a great romantic suspense
4 stars The Princess is picks up right where The Bastard (book 1) left off. This book is fast-paced and full of secrets, betrayals, and suspense. It’s not just reputations on the line anymore, but lives as well. I am still trying to determine who is the mastermind behind whatever it is that is going on at Kingston Motors, which is quite impressive since I usually figure out these types of mysteries pretty early on.
Harper and Eric continue to be strong characters who are recognizing just how much they care for one another and they are having to learn to trust each other. I like that we get to see more of the guys from Walker Security was well as Grayson. I am still not sure who all are co-conspirators in this mess - Gigi, Eric’s father, Isaac? Those 3 are the perfect villains in this trilogy. The Princess does end a cliffhanger and fortunately, the final book, The Empire will be released in a few days. I received this book for free and I voluntarily leave this review.
This should be one book not a three part.. what makes the length a three part is the endless, unnecessary bickering about the same things, over and over again.. relentless
Plenty of heat and suspense; an entertaining read
Book 2 in the Filthy Trilogy, this is not a standalone. You need to read The B*stard first and should plan to read the concluding book, The Empire which is scheduled to be published in March. Note there may be minor spoilers for book 1 in this review.
I enjoyed book 1, which gave us the start of Eric and Harper’s story, so I was looking forward to reading the next part of the trilogy. Eric did disappoint a bit at the end of the first book, but he quickly managed to redeem himself here. As usual with this author, both Eric and Harper are interesting characters with tons of off the charts chemistry and the story has great mystery and suspense elements. There’s some nice support from secondary characters that readers of The Dirty Rich series will be familiar with (while you don’t need to have read that series to enjoy their appearances here, it’s a touch series fans will appreciate).
I was pretty much just along for the ride in this one, as the story pulled me in and kept me engaged and I didn’t have a clue where we were going to end up. I did have one moment near the end where the story dragged a bit for me as Eric and Harper used the excuse of their chemistry to avoid talking AGAIN. I typically enjoy the way this author handles bedroom scenes—lots of heat and just the right amount of detail—but knowing another cliffhanger was coming had me skimming that last scene to get back to the plot, and the ending didn’t quite have the impact I expected.
While I didn’t like this one quite as much as the first book, with plenty of both heat and suspense, this was still an entertaining read for me. 4.5 stars
