That was serious fun!!

“Welcome to Eden.”
His eyes are as dark as the midnight blue sky above us, and what I see in them makes it clear that I’m far from welcome here.

Jazmine is an orphan. She is almost 18 years old and works as a waitress in order to gather money and pay for her future studies as an artist. A few months before she becomes finally an adult and leaves foster house number 10 to chase her dreams; a stranger older man appears and starts telling her stories about parallel realms (Eden)

This book left me wanting more. More of everything. More plot, more worldbuilding, more powers, more elements, more explanations, just plain more.

Out story begins with Jazmine. A teenage girl who has lost her mum and has since been shipped to numerous foster homes. Her current one is in a trailer park and she's struggling to make money and good grades so she can escape it as soon as she can. Jazmine has always felt out of sync with the world, like she doesn't belong anywhere on Earth.

HOLY HELL GUYS!

My heart is broken. I'm a hot mess. So many emotions are flooding from me right now.

Secret Heir: A Forbidden Love, Enemies to Lovers, Royal Romance was so fucking good. I couldn't put it down once I saw it with my god damn hazel eyes. I loved everything about Jazmine. Even though she had a crappy life, she dealt with it. She didn't sulk or complain constantly. Nope, Jazmine was a fucking bad ass and I envy the hell ou

This book was wow! I mean from the first chapter I was already hooked! The cover doesn’t do this book justice, but the story... I can’t explain what I feel right now, because I’m so in love with this crazy love story between the main characters. What I can say is that the action was a permanent chain of reaction for me.

Jazmine never had a happy life. Her mother died when she was little, she never even met her father and she was sent from foster home to foster home.
Changing locations that frequently, she never had got close to anyone so she never had any real friends.
And she works in a job that she despises.

However her entire life will change when one day a mysterious man comes in and tells her that he's her grandfather and wants her to come with him to Eden.

Jazmine has been going from foster home to foster home ever since her mother died many years ago. She’s working hard as a waitress to escape her current foster home when she turns 18. One night while working, Jazmine meets an old man and that man says that he’s her grandfather. He also tells Jazmine that her father was the King of Eden and she’s the only heir of their Dynasty. Jazmine doesn’t believe the man, but the man takes her to Eden anyway and she quickly realizes that the man was telling ...more

My life was getting in the way of reading this book! I couldn't put it down.

The book cover and title don't do this book justice. I expected to read another book that went something like; ... I'm a princess ... now I have to learn what to do. That wasn't this story. It was so much better!

Jazmine is in the foster care system. She has never found a home since her mum died. She's been passed from family to family. She works a rubbish job in the hope of saving to go to art school and better her lif

Jazmine never felt she belonged. Tossed from foster home to foster home, she never fit in. Life was brutal, she learned to develop a tough outer layer, but inside is a different story. Isn’t there anywhere she can find happiness? What has she done to deserve so much turmoil?

The answers came, but in the most unbelievable way from a parallel world, from “Eden,” and Jazmine will discover she is part of this world, too, but will she fit in there? Is this where she belongs or will she find more heart

This was an incredible forbidden love story between the main characters and I loved every single minute of it. The characters were amazing. I loved Jazmine. She made me laugh and I thought that she was a badass. She is one of those heroines that I love to read about because they are snarky and feisty. Ralph was a compl

This was predictably fun. For me it was a little like a mix of so many books I've read. So the school mafia scenes, we have books like Fallen Crest and the Paper Princess of the Royals series. The only additional things in this were the other realm, some royalty stuff and some elemental magic.

Right, so we have Jazmine who's been shuffled around in foster homes after her mother's death. She feels out of place, she's frustrated and she feels like she just doesn't belong. She works as a waitress to

Romeo and Juliet meet Gossip Girl in this new addictive paranormal tale of two star-crossed lovers that will leave you screaming at the top of your lungs, asking for more.

There was something addicting about Secret Heir. I don't know if it was the amazing characters, the captivating plot, the writing style or the mesmerizing chemistry between Raph & Jazmine but I just couldn't get enough of them.

3.5 angsty, intriguing stars!

I really enjoyed this book. An angsty teen romance with hints of the supernatural, but definitely more of a mature-YA romantic drama than a paranormal story. It’s the first in the Dynasty trilogy, and a great introduction to a new world with well-developed, enjoyable characters, sexy, emotional and angsty romance, captivating high school drama, and a hint of political intrigue. It has a bit of a feel of the Royals series by Erin Watt, and I thought it was a great rea

Secret Heir is breathtaking and heart-pounding! It has fantasy, passion, and betrayal. For those who love adult books with a young adult feel, and steamy romance scenes, this one is for you.

After reading the synopsis I was immediately drawn in with promises of a parallel fantasy world of vivid color, an outcast main character, and a devilishly handsome angel. This one definitely fulfilled those promises. This one had intrigue and mystery. It had romance and betrayal, and had a mix of young adult

Thank you MJ Prince for providing me with a paperback copy of Secret Heir!

Think Paper Princess but with powers in another realm. This book had me turning the pages from beginning to end.

Jaz lives in on Earth and has been moving from one foster home to another since she was 7. When a mysterious man appears and tells her of another realm where she is heir to a Dynasty, she doesn't believe him. He brings her there anyways because we if didn't then we wouldn't have a book.

“God, you have no idea how much I want to be inside you,” he says, and his words send a delicious thrill along my skin.
“I want to be inside you so bad, that I can’t even think straight half the time, and when we’re lying in that bed of yours, my body on yours … it takes everything I have, every last bit of self-control to stop myself from burying myself deep inside you.”



An absolute enjoyable read.

This book was recommended by Janett, and I think it may have pulled me out of my book slump. There were things about this book that weren't perfect, but despite those things, I never wanted to put this one down! I even read it while at a party, sneaking glances of my kindle app. This is definitely a romance, with sex and language, two things I personally love. If either of those offend you, I would look elsewhere.

Wow! This story. Wow!
I've read that this was a loose adaption of Romeo and Juliet, but with a fantastical twist. True, but it's also much more, it's a story of forbidden love, betrayal and royal scandals. All for the crown.

When I started reading it, I had no idea what I was going to get from it. But I fell in love with it from the first word on. By the time I got to 43%, I went and fully stalked M.J. everywhere.

At first I was having some trepidation to plunge into another fantasy world that was different from the one I'd been spending my time in. The rules were different, and it just felt realky awkward at the beginning. But, this totally took me by surprise. Sure, there were things that I wasn't completely on board with, but in the end, I was sold.

I loved the forbidden love angle and how it was executed. I would have to find out in the next book if I should love or hate Raph

This is MJ Prince's debut novel, at the beginning I must say that I wasn't really into it and that's because the first 100 pages were pretty slow and nothing really kept me interested . But after passing these...the book was extremely compelling. Even before the real drama kicks off in the later chapters, I was so wholly pulled into Prince's world. All the drama
