Catriona: Dav might be a prince, but he's still a bastard. Not the kind where mama had him out of wedlock, but the "I screwed over my brother and tried to take his crown" kind of bastard. Yeah, that kind. The kind I ought to hate.

Protect and Obey is the second instalment in Jen Katemi’s Rich and Royal series and reintroduces readers to the self-serving, entitled and less than honourable Prince Davide. At the end of book one, it was debatable whether this arrogant man had any redeeming qualities and where Ms Katemi would go when faced with telling his story. But as with any true romance, the bad guy is often misunderstood and somewhat self-loathing and Davide definitely fits this persona perfectly.

I enjoyed the plot, whic

I got to say this book is amazing. I love how as annoying Prince Davide may be Catriona respected him, then slowly she saw the many sides of him. In return Dav fell for Catriona who was the opposite of the women he normally dated. Not only that but their romance sheds light on how the Queen Dowager made Davide feel as if he don’t matter. It also introduces Princess Isabella into mix by wanting Cat to be with her brother. One of the reasons I love this story is that his siblings Thinks she is goo ...more

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. An arrogant prince! His female body guard! What could go wrong? Or, better, what could go right? For me, everything about this book was just right! Characters, plot, steaminess, all were just right! Well, maybe just one thing was not just right! A too-short read! I wanted more of Catriona and Davide!

This is the second book in the Rich and Royal Series but can be read as a standalone. A steamy romance with a royal flair. Plenty of drama, suspense, and chemistry that's over the top. He's rich, he's royal and he's arrogant. She's the opposite of him and she's his bodyguard. Off limits and taboo but oh so much attraction. Well defined characters and a steamy storyline. I read a reader copy via Booksprout and voluntarily chose to review.

Slick, quick and steamy. This is fraught with past intrigue and menace lurking around the corner. But a happy ending ensures a good ending.

The book is a good steamy romance read. The story has a good story line. The characters are good, and they have good chemistry. The story is a good quick, steamy, and is a stand alone romance read.

I normally enjoy this author’s work, for some reason the Rich & Royal Series is just not making much of an impression as this author’s other work has in the past for me.

Catriona/Cat is part of the protective service guarding the royals and Davide/Dav is the twin brother of the soon to be king. These two seem to enjoy striking sparks off of each. Neither knows why the other has gotten under their skin but the growing mutual attraction is causing a bit of a problem for them both.

Davide is one messed up royal. His brother is the King, and everyone knows that Davide tried to ruin his brothers chance of becoming the King. Although his brother forgives him, the rest of the country doesn't. He has a female bodyguard named Cat. After seeing her workout, he decides to get her to train him. Of course he has reasons for doing this. He's attracted to Cat. Cat thinks Davide is attractive, but she doesn't like him at all. Thinks he's a spoiled, pampered royal. There is an attempt o ...more

Davide has always been the disposable son, born twelve minutes after his twin, Kasper. He's a complex man with many layers but the one on top is blatant disregard and sarcasm. He's also known as a ladies man, that's why he keeps the apartment in town.
Catriona has been assigned to the team that guards the Royal family. Well, that is, until Davide has commanded she personally be his guard and show him some of the moves she practices.
This is the first book of Jen Katemi I've read, so I had no idea

Cat is a member of the security detail for the royal family and as part of her job she is giving Crown Prince Davide coaching on self defense. However there is more going on than self defense between the two of them. Cat is nothing like the type of women Davide usually is seen with but something about her "no nonsense" approach makes him want to disrupt the calm exterior she show to him. The more time he spends with her the more attracted he becomes until he confronts her forcing her to admit he ...more

I don't often read steamy romance. But when I do, I turn to my favourite steamy romance author Jen Katemi. Somehow she mixes lots of sex (LOTS!) with a great story, well-rounded characters and a light sensual touch. In the Rich and Royal series she has really nailed steamy romance with depth, and plot that has you wanting to turn the pages. It's a short read, but a thoroughly enjoyable one. This book makes sense as a standalone, but I think it's richer if you read the 1st story in the book as we ...more

Wow, this is a fantastic read! This is a well written story that is mixed with action, suspense, drama, sadness, humour, witty banter, and so much more. The plot is consistent and realistic. There are so many twists and turns - when I thought the story would go one way it goes another way, thus making it more exciting and engaging. The chemistry between Davide and Catriona is off the charts hot and their sex scenes are hot with sparks flying everywhere. I could not stop reading and at the same t ...more

Davide is cocky and arrogant and used to getting what he wants. Catriona his bodyguard despises the type of person he is. I like how both main characters think they want one thing and are actually surprised when they learn more about the other and see that people are sometimes more than what you see on the outside. So much drama and twists and turns in this story I wasn't expecting. When the two finally get together, sparks fly. The two had intense chemistry, and enjoyed reading about their jour ...more

Prince Davide is the ultimate misunderstood bad boy. After trying to bring down his brother, the King, Davide is not very well liked by many and Cat is tasked with protecting him. Things change as Cat learns more about the man behind the royal title. I loved how she didn't put up with any of his attitude and stood her ground. As his upbringing and history are revealed, you can't help but feel for the unwanted second son. Can't wait to read Isabella's story.

PWow I really enjoyed the storyline. Catriona was a bodyguard for Prince David. Price David was the twin brother to King Kasper and his sister Isabella. The mother was was not nice to Prince David he was the black sheep of the family. Prince David and Cat were getting very close, Prince David asked the King if he could have Cat as his PLUS one the King granted the requst.

I loved reading this book, i will probely read the book a few more times I really did enjoy the book.

Protect and Obey the 2nd book in Jen Katemi’s Rich and Royal series is a great read when you don’t have hours but want a compelling story with a HEA. Cat and Prince Davide’s story is the first I’ve read in the series and worked well as a stand alone. Sexy, suspenseful with a side of family drama definitely a book worth reading.

A great follow up in the series


This can be read as a stand-alone even though this is the second in the series
Both books are short so starting with the first is recommended

For a short book this still gives good likeable characters, one a prince and one a lass who can kickass (quite literally), throw in a few steamy scenes and it is hard not to like this as a quick read.

This is a quick , well written book with a steamy romance. It has strong characters in Cat and Dav , who are opposites in every way. The author packs the story with drama,suspense and enough steam to fog up your kindle. It's both intriguing and entertaining and I loved reading reading their story. I highly recommend this book.

I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book. All opinions in this review are my own and freely given.

This is a great story about a royal bodyguard and the Prince. I love stories with a strong female lead character and Cat is great. The prince is a complex arrogant man, and when he sees one of his security team working out privately he wants to take lessons with her. She falls for him as well. The story is fun and sexy, I adored the prince’s dialogue and character, and Cat is a truly amazing character.

This is the second book in the series but it can be read as a stand-alone. Prince Davide is the black sheep of the royal family. Catriona is Dav’s bodyguard but can’t stand him, but what will happen when sparks fly between these two. Fast-paced read with great chemistry, plenty of drama and lots of emotion. I was hooked from beginning to end. A good read.

This is the second story in the Rich and Royal series, we follow royal blacksheep of the family, Prince Davide. Cat has been hired as his bodyguard but he falls for the beauty. There is plenty of drama and action in this book, along with emotion and steamy passion. Highly entertaining

Cat and Dav hate to love each other. It’s clear they share a strong connection but they just can’t stand each other. However when barriers are broken the possibility of a happy ending is right around the corner. I enjoyed reading this story and I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
