**grm** **little spoiler**

Ok, this story started cute and then, at least for me, became creepy.
You know the books where there is a crazy girl that falls in love with the other MC and starts stalking him, thinking they are perfect together and the only one for each other? Imagine her also not listening to anything that the other MC says and continuing to programm their lives, thinking about marriage after having been in a sexual relationship for 2 days, and then change her with Toby.
I'm sorry gu

It’s an easy book to read. I liked the plot. I’m interested to read about Oscar’s brothers and/or more bodyguards..

This is an entertaining story but it's just an okay read for me. I mostly like Toby but I really don't care for Oscar. Toby is sweet and down-to-earth but I think his expectations when it comes to Oscar are way too high. Oscar has very good reasons to stay in the closet but Toby pushes him to come out when he isn't ready. Their issues resolve too quickly and easily near the end and I wish they had more of a connection. The lack of editing also made it difficult for me to enjoy this book but as I ...more

What's the purpose of writing a book if it's to be published botched? I spotted too many typos like 'at' in place of 'and', 'Tony' in place of 'Toby', ... I know they are harder to spot for the author, but still ... this was supposed to be a joint work, the editor should have been able to correct them, a botched book means commercial finality and lack of respect for the client ... oops, I meant the reader.

Moreover, I've lost interest after the chapter 11. It was supposed to be a twist but it did

First off, it's a hotel SUITE, not suit. How did nobody pick that up, between editing, betaing, proofreading? Apart from that, I thought the story has good potential and particularly enjoyed the first half but in the second, several scenes felt rushed, the writing style felt different. I think a few tweaks could make this an enjoyable read.

Class barriers and homophobic family: will they keep this👑 Prince from his dream partner?!😯

Even though it's a contemporary MM 💓romance, this one feels a bit like a 🏰fairytale with its "love conquers all" and "all's well AND ends well" positive vibe. Brit personal security specialist Oscar battles stereotypes and family disapproval, plus a fear of public exposure, something that is all too likely when Toby, the man he craves, is a foreign r

Sweet and Sexy Gay Royal Love Story

I really enjoyed this story of a closeted British bodyguard and a bisexual European prince. I love the idea of a gay royal couple, and add in a wedding and it's even better! And a bodyguard falling in love with a client, too! I love Toby; he was such a sweetheart! I loved his faith that everything would work out. And I really felt for Oscar and his worries about coming out. There were some editing issues, but all in all it was a great story!

This is a sweet romance between a prince who is sure of himself and knows what he wants, and a conflicted, closeted bodyguard with a homophobic family who is afraid to reach for what he wants. I loved Toby's persistence, patience, and understanding, and I adored his parents and the love and acceptance they showed. They were a definite counterbalance to Oscar's parents, and showed him how family should be. I loved the growth and change that some characters showed. It was measured and realistic.

A charming book the writing was good. The plot was entertaining and it was steady throughout the book. I found the story and characters delightful. The characters were developed and thought out. Toby and Oscar are the MC’s of this book. I enjoyed this book and can recommend it as a good read. I voluntarily read an advance copy of this book for an honest review.

H. J. Perry has brought another wonderful creation to light and hopefully the stigma that is associated with LGBT to an end. Love is love and you can't help who you love. As an ARC reader, I can tell you that this book is so worth reading all the way to the end. 💙💜💖💜💙 ...more
