Title: Ruling the Princess
Author: Christi Barth
Sexy Misadventures of Royals #2
Genre: Contemporary Romance
I’m thrilled that my first trip back to my homeland, after years in exile, is for an assignment from the prime minister. Even better, the job’s to put Princess Genevieve in her place…by cutting off her cash flow. Spoiled royals—even drop-dead gorgeous ones—don’t do anything to deserve their wealth and status. Hell, they don’t do anything. She’s fighting me tooth and nail, of course. The only way to stop her arguing is, well, to kiss her.
And I can’t seem to stay away from her. Now I see a whole different side to the princess—and not just because I’ve gotten her clothes off. But I was put on this assignment for a reason… Those outside the castle want to see the Princess discredited and push their own agenda, and I may have just given them all the ammunition they need.
Each book in the Unexpectedly Royal series is

The princess + the numbers guy = love!
Ruling the Princess was just what I needed this weekend. The enemies-to-lovers element (especially in the first half) was just delicious–and when they weren’t enemies anymore? Deliciousness squared! 😉 I loved watching Theo and Genny realize that their previous assumptions were wrong, and loved even more that they did it like grown ups. They both were wrong at times, they both made mistakes, and they both took responsibility and steps to make things better. Who knew responsibility could be so sexy?
Just don’t tell Genny’s grandmother–the throne room may never be the same again 😉
I haven’t read the first book yet ( The Princess Problem –no worries, I picked it up before I was even out of the “enemies” phase of this one!) but I didn’t have any problem following along with what I needed to know–Ms Barth gave us the pertinent details in a way that felt organic rather than overly didactic. Sure, it’s a bit spoiler-y for what happened in that book, but having seen Kelsey and Elias here? I need to read their book anyway, even if I do know some of the major details and drama of their story already.
And as for Christian and Mallory’s? Bring. It. On!
Rating: 4 stars / A-
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
