Getting close to an arrogant bad boy like him is dangerous. Too bad it’s her only choice.

Kain Badd looks great on paper: rich, handsome, and he’s even a prince. But after spending a few minutes together, Sammy sees the real him—arrogant, possessive, and too hot for his own good. If she hadn’t agreed to help plan his sister’s wedding, she could have avoided him. Instead,

This one isn't for me.
I don't like the pace, I don't like the heroine and I really don't like the hero. He can't decide if he's a romantic or a raging ass****. One second he says something resembling a compliment but then tops it off with a crude sexual remark. Pick a side dude. I'm just not feeling it.

It takes the heroine forever to figure out she's in a royal palace and she still hasn't figured it out by the time I dropped this book. But she did manage to get a quick nookie, so there's

"I'd been thinking of her as my Cinderella. I was already a prince - in a sense - so why couldn't it work? We'd dance, I'd put the shoes on her prefect feet, and we'd kiss and laugh, and all would be fucking sparkles and hearts."

I really had a hard time picking between a 2 and 3 stars on this. I mean, I have a hard time judging truly because this isn't really the genre I prefer to read. Still, despite my low expectations it was surprisingly entertaining - despite the parts that made me laugh o

The Bad Boy Royals are coming... April 1st 2017, meet Kain Badd.


I wanted to clean up my tbr list, saw that it was going to take forever so I aimed for my library instead. There are just so many books..
Anyway I've picked up this book some time ago, remembering having liked a book from Nora Flite before.

My 18 year old self may have liked this book a lot! On the other hand my present self had to take many deep breaths accompanied with lots of eye rolling. I do congratulate myself for finishing it:

3.5 Stars in my Sky!

The premise of Royally Bad is fun and entertaining. I liked the idea of the gangster prince and the wedding dress maker.

I laughed more than expected, although I have to admit, not all of my laughter was necessarily in places where it was supposed to be. Certain elements were particularly far fetched - BUT this was also what I really enjoyed about Sammy and Kain's romance. The drama and escapism.

Sammy is awkward and funny. I honestly wasn't sure what she was going to do or sa

A gangster bad boy prince and a strong, hardworking wedding dress maker.
The plot was very intriguing, a combination of fairy tail and mafia romance. The Badd family is similar to a mafia and Kain Badd is the young prince. He meets Sammy in relation to his sisters wedding and soon fate is pushing Sammy & Kain together everywhere.
Their chemistry is amazing , connection strong and soon they are inseparable. Family and circumstances push them apart, can their love hold strong?

Something missing with this book. It was just ok. Back to this review now I have made my apple cake and had a think. Kain and Sammy just did not connect for me. Irritated with this wishy washy gang who were not into really bad stuff like drugs and prostitutes so were really doing community service by not being as bad as the other gang. Nooooo. If you are a gang called Badd own it and if at the end you are better people then I can get it but at least run with being baaaaaaaad.

I voluntarily received an advance reader copy.

This was not what I expected. Sammy and Kain meet when she made the wedding dress for his sister wedding. Things heated up quickly between both of them. Sammy tried avoiding Kain and Kain couldn't seem to stay away.

Then his sister wedding was raided by the cops and Sammy needed Kain protection. This story took some unexpected twists that can't be revealed without spoiling.

4.5 stars!

I am intrigued! The first book in this series is off to a good start. It's an interesting mix of organized crime, bad boy-good girl, and a mystery. The chemistry between Kain and Sammy is great and hot. I was a little confused at how it went from being hot to changing from sexy times to sweet times. It was almost like it happened on a dime. But I guess that makes sense since the shift in story changed from Kain and Sammy to everything that was going on around them in the Badd family. A

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

Hmmm, where to start with this review. This had a great premise, but I just don't think that it delivered what it had potential to.

Kain is from a powerful family and when he is helping his sister find the perfect wedding dress, he meets Sammy, the dress creator.

Sammy is witty, funny, brave and somewhat naive. While helping Kain's sister by b

And believe me, I know bad news.

Kain....has a thing for the wedding dress maker!

Sammy = the wedding dress maker!

One hot night....and all hell breaks loose.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. This is a great start to a new series by Ms Flite. I found the characters of Sammy and Kain really enjoyable. This book was full of drama, suspense, action and even humor at times. The two had great chemistry. Right from the start you really get drawn in to the story. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys this type of story. Of course the HEA was great.

Sadly, sometimes you just know when a book isn't for you. I tried to power through it, but sadly with feeling no chemistry between the MCs and feeling no connection to either the hero or the heroine, I just couldn't. I'm not sure what it was exactly that made me feel so disconnected. Maybe it was the writing style? Perhaps it was the quickness that Kain and Sammy got together? Kai's sister drove me out of my ever loving mind with the way she talks. And truth be said, the heroine wasn't

This is not normally the genre of book I would read, but at the same time I don't believe that Nora Flite is a normal writer in the genre. For as downright dirty as the book could get, and for as much as it is clearly written for its audience, Nora manages to create something believable and whole with this story. The characters are all three dimensional, which is remarkable given the fantastic nature of their setting. There is a real and personal story in there, which is not at odds with it's es ...more

When things involve his woman, Kain doesn't take crap from anyone, "Kain leaned close to his brother. “You’re right,” he said carefully. “I am effing her. And it’s great. But the only one who gets to talk about that is me. Is that clear?” Kain's brother obviously knows when he needs to take his leave, “because I’ll eff her, regardless of if you’re watching or not. Nothing is going to stop me.” Wordlessly he closed taahe door, leaving us alone." I loved this book, I can't wait for the other sibli ...more

This book was really good. It had a good story and wasn't too long. I will look for more books from this author.
J.A. Belfield
A lot of fun with some decent banter.
Leanne Crabtree
I don't think the author stuck to Kain's original bad arse-ness enough. To start with he was this arrogant arse that was hot but likeable and then by the eighth or ninth chapter he was all nice and gentle and wanting more from her. It lost my interest a little when that happened. The rest of the story didnt really pull me in either apart from the family turmoil when Lulabelle? came back after ten years away.

I don't think I'll be continuing the series.

Kindle first choice for March.

Enjoyed the story and will possibly get the next one when it is released. Mix of romance, danger mafia style and a knight in shining armour..... Bit far fetched with the royalty business but was still good.

Raunchy in places and quite descriptive but nothing like 50SOG.

We could all do with a Kain Badd in our life.

such a fantastic book. It was well written and so exciting. I read it with out any very quickly because I couldn't put it away. Who was the person trying to kill Sammy and why? and Kain he was so hot. I can wait to read more
