**It's brief but contains spoilers**

There were some very interesting scenes. Like the opening one with the h jumping from a bridge or when they're about to make love but she changes her mind (thinking the H didn't really want her) and he goes crazy.

You get two badass females (the h and her ex-military friend), both H and h lying or at least omitting their true identities, dubious ethics and legalities, two princes that were only mentioned but

Heroine is a princess who is under supervision but who always manages to eludes her bodyguards. Her father assigns our hero to watch over her.Unknown to Lina, Sebastian is her new bodyguard. He guards Lina without revealing his true identity, to give her the illusion of freedom with a guarantee of safety. They fall in love but Lina is engaged and Sebastian can't betray his work ethics.

Good story but the final chapters left me cold. After all the build up, the ending of the story was an anticlim
This was a weird one for me because I was interested in the premise of a princess refusing an arranged marriage, but the end with them getting married in Vegas, it just felt like a cop out. Confront your father about his abandonment! That's what I had spent the entire book waiting for and it just didn't happen.

I also don't really believe that she could have become a US citizen without anyone in her country knowing about it, but okay. And it felt an awful lot like the college part was supposed to

I am a huge Lucy Monroe fan, and I was dying for Hawk's story, but I just could not warm up to the story or the characters. It just seemed to be missing the LM sizzle.

I’ve read every book in Lucy Monroe’s Royal Bride series and they only get better and better and more interesting. In Forbidden: The Billionaire’s Virgin Princess Sebastian Hawk and Lina Marwan are equally matched in sensuality, spirit and in their attraction for each other. In each chapter I couldn’t wait to see if Lina was going to out-smart Hawk as he was hired to be her bodyguard to watch over her and to also watch over her security team her family had hired.

As a small child, Lina was sent a

Overall, this book had promise, right up until the last 80% when I started wondering how they were going to wrap it all up in such a short amount of pages. Well it was a disappointing end because of it. This book needed at least several more chapters to show how it ended and to wrap everything up rather than just telling about it in a few short paragraphs. For that reason, because I was denied a halfway decent ending, this book only got 2 stars.

Instead of a Sheik, a Sheika?

This is the first book I read about an Arab woman.
Does the security fellow have to be a billionaire? Never knew those existed, but it is convenient. The pages were a mess, with many consisting of parts of sentences only. Noted at least 2 typos.

Shelves: romance
For overall romantic and erotic payoff, I'd give this book 0 stars. Even for romances done in this style, the sex really disappointing. But for sheer fun to read, on Twitter, with a few dozen people commenting on my comments and discussing en masse, I'd give it 4. So I'm averaging it at 2.

The beginning had the best attenion getter i must say. I didn't want to put the book down till I knew HOW the characters got to such a point... jumping off a bridge to escape?!
The storyline was good...but the end seemed just that an end.

Five stars!

As always, Lucy Monroe does it again. The reluctant H had no chance against the h clever plan to wheel him in. I loved every minute of the story
