I love contemporary romances. it's my favourite genre with the exception of PNR and I love it when I find new authors who write both these genres too. You know that if you enjoy one genre written by the author, you're 80% sure you're going to enjoy the other. To give an example, I've read the PNR novel by this same author and loved it so I knew I wanted to read The Princes Game, also by this author and I am happy to say I was not disappointed.

Sarah has been duped into participating on a gameshow

Amazing just Amazing.What a awesome,fabulous book.

Lexi you are now one of my favourite Authors, as my normal genre to read is PNR and Thrillers but i now have to add Contemparty Romance to my list, as this story had me gripped right from the word go, it was gripping,witty and with some hot steamy sex throughout,heaven.

I totally couldn't get enough of this book it was a page turner at the very best and i devoured this in two evenings,i couldn't put it down and it kept me up until the early hours
The Princess Game was the first book in the Mershano Empire series by Lexi Foss. It was also my first book by the author, but it definitely wont be my last.

I loved the beginning. It set the stage for fun, humor, great characters and an entertaining plot.

Evan Mershano was the heir to the Mershano Empire. He was gorgeous, confident, smart and a workaholic. As part of the terms of his trust and inheritance, he had a time limit to wed and produce a child. He was the typical bachelor, so his parents

Evan Mershano is a billionaire hotel owner who's looking for a wife and mother to his heir. So he does what every billionaire does - he goes on a game show! Riiiggghhhtttt.

Except, it isn't quite as straightforward as that. Because Evan doesn't want a wife, and he certainly doesn't want children, but unfortunately, there's a tiny problem. If Evan wants to keep his fortune, he doesn't have a choice.

Sarah Summers finds herself on the show thanks to a prank by her identical twin sister, Abby (who I

I'll start off by saying I loved this book and I had a slightly grumpy feeling inside when I had to put it down on the few occasions I did. This did surprise me a bit as the subject matter, gorgeous billionaire bachelor goes on game show, dates and judges 30 different women to choose a wife at the end, is not actually a TV show I would watch......normally!
The last thing Evan Mershano wants or needs is a wife, especially one who is really only there for the money, but to keep the peace and his
This is a wonderful contemporary romance. 

In all honesty, I love Lexi's PNR books more, but she did a wonderful job on this book as well. It was enthralling and funny and the writing was as amazing as always. 

This book had me thinking about the Selection by Kiera Cass with the whole dating show thing, but then woven into an adult package. I really liked these characters, as I always do when it comes to a Foss book, and can't wait to read about the other characters that were introduced in this

The Princes Game by Lexi C. Foss a sublime five-star read, this is the first book in the Mershano Empire series, and what a kick start. Its the first book by this author I have read, but I am confident it wont be the last. Ill be honest when this book was recommended to me I didnt know if I was going to read it, as I dont like much reality television so reading a book about it wasnt something I was interested in. But the cover looked good, (Hot model) and I was tempted, I am so glad I was, ...more

Great Scott @ Platypire The Princes Game by Lexi C. Foss

4 Platypires

I met Foss at a book signing and this story piqued my interest. It was also sold out, which I took as a particularly good sign. So I instantly bought it and finally read it.

Such a cute story! Evan and Sarah have undeniable chemistry and their banter was so adorable! I honestly felt like I was there but was pissed that I was still cuddled up in bed by myself.

I look forward to reading more from Foss and hopefully

Explosive, funny, and downright sexy

I'm not one for billionaire romances as they are normally too cliche for my liking. But The Prince's Game has given the billionaire romance a brand new twist. I absolutely loved this book and simply could not put it down. Evan and Sarah are strong believable characters and I fell in love with both of them! I don't want to give the game away with any spoilers but the story doesn't let up for a second, the pace is incredible and the only downside is the ending

Fantastic story. I have never been a fan of the dating shows on TV because it all seems so staged. This book have insight into that. I could totally understand Sarah and her feelings in this story. I loved the characters, the friends, and the chemistry.

I will definitely be checking out the next book as both Rachel and Will piqued my interest.

I really loved this love story of Evan and Sarah. Two strong characters that beat the odds and give me all the feels! I love that they treat each other as equals and are honest with each other.

I would recommend this read and can't wait to read the next one!

The Princes Game is the first book in the Mershano Empire series by Lexi C. Foss and I have to ask where has this author been hiding? I had the absolute pleasure of reading her debut novel Blood Laws which was amazing so I was a little excited when I picked this one up and not only is it completely different to her other book but also just as outstanding! She is one talented author and certainly one to keep an eye on! I cannot wait to read more from her!

I seriously loved Sarah and Evans story. Even though I dont like watching shows like the Bachelor I enjoy reading similar fictional plots. In a book, we can see the ins, the outs, and the behind the scenes. We can also see and feel what the characters are going through vs. a TV show that seems mostly staged.
When Sarah is tricked onto the show due to her twins latest prank, Sarah does everything she can to ruin her chances of being selected. While Evan is forced to go onto the show to appease

Lexi Foss' The Prince's Game is a contemporary romantic comedy. Not the first book I have read by this author, but each book I read endears me more to this author. The Prince's Game is the first book in the Mershano Empire series. This was a remarkable read that had me instantly intrigued, on the edge of my seat, and chuckling through all the hilarious parts.

What could possibly be more fun than reading a story about a sister getting her twin involved in a dating show in the pursuit of marriage.

Abbey and Sarah are sisters - they are identical twins in every way but one-
their personalities.
Abbey is the free spirit who thinks the world is her playground - she has never learned that there are consequences to every action
Sarah is the goal-oriented and more serious of the two - she has a plan and she has goals -she does not need a man to take care of her. Sure things are hectic right now, no spare time, no BF -
and that is how this whole mess got started!
Abbey has always felt Sarah needed to

This is the second book by Lexi C. Fosss that I have had the pleasure to read. The Princes Game is quite different from her first book, Blood Laws, which shows the range of skills this new author has.
The Princes Game is a perfect sweet romantic read for anyone who enjoys The Bachelor or the show Unreal. If you are not a TV fan you might end up watching these shows after reading The Princes Game to get over your book hangover.
Evan is hot and Sarah is smart, the perfect

I was given a copy for an honest review.

I started this book thinking "here we go again ". There's a book out there with a similar plot and I was skeptic. Well wasn't I wrong !

I loved this book! The storyline flowed well, the banter was good and the sex scenes were hot. I am so glad I came across this author and I hope there will be more! You have gotten yourself a fan.

Sarah Summers has no intention of finding her prince, true love, or a happily ever after any time soon. She is career driven and focused on her dreams of one day owning her own marketing firm and calling the shots. Right now, she is working for one and just barely getting by for the amount of work she is putting in. She is hoping that all the hard work will pay off and get her up the corporate ladder quick and smoothly. Sarah also has an

The Princes Game is the first book in the Mershano Empire Series by Lexi C. Foss. This story is a wonderful, erotic contemporary romance and is quite different from Ms. Fosss other book Blood Laws, which is a paranormal romance. I absolutely loved Blood Laws and couldnt wait to see what Ms. Foss did with this genre. I wrote in my review for Blood Laws that I was struck by how amazingly talented Ms. Foss is- as she truly has limitless creativity and imagination. Now having

Sarah Summers is not amused when she finds herself trapped on a reality dating show thanks to a prank by her twin sister.
