Stoic, broody, and arrogant, elite bodyguard Rhys Larsen has two rules: Protect his clients at all costs and do not become emotionally involved. Ever. He has never once been tempted to break those rules…until her.
Bridget von Ascheberg is a princess who dreams of the freedom to live and love as she chooses. But when her brother abdicates, she’s suddenly faced with the prospect of a loveless, politically expedient marriage and a throne she never wanted.
And as she navigates the intricacies—and treacheries—of her new role, she must also hide her desire for a man she can’t have. Her bodyguard. Her protector. Her ultimate ruin.
I was in the mood for a bodyguard romance and couldn’t wait to check out Twisted Games by Ana Huang, book two in the Twisted Love series, given its popularity.
I’m so glad that I did because I enjoyed the slow burn sizzle between these two and found myself rooting for their happily-ever-after.
What’s a girl to do when she gets a bodyguard replacement who looks like Rhys?
Granted the man was infuriatingly focused on her safety to the point of driving her a bit mad, there was no denying her attraction to the hot alpha male.
What continues is this slow burn tension building between them that almost got achingly slow as the years go on.
In retrospect, I didn’t mind the time that goes by because it built up their familiarity and aged her a bit beyond the college girl she was when the story began.
I also loved Rhys struggle with his attraction to a client. He tried his hardest to keep his distance but I loved how he worked to make her happy.
When things finally crossed the line between client and lover, it was on and oh so hot. Admittedly the bedroom scenes started to feel the same after a while which diluted them for me, but I guess I can let that go.
I also enjoyed the second part of the book where Bridget is thrown into royal politics. It too may have lasted a bit too long but it was a good aspect of the story.
If you love romance books featuring royals or bodyguard romance books, then give this one a try!
