Having loved the first in the American Royalty series, I couldn’t wait to discover what lay in store for the oldest of the three Auprince brothers when reacquainted with the girl he loved and lost ten years previously.

3.5 - "Are you following me..?" Stars!

We return to the American Royalty series with Ethan Auprince meeting his match and working through the inevitable romance pitfalls towards his HEA.

I’ve been given a second chance and I’m not going to blow it…

So from reading the blurb I was expecting to settle myself in for a good old Romantic Suspense read, but what I actually got was a book of two halves, the first half was firmly about the supposed stalker, but as that storyline fizzled out like a damp f

I fell into this book so easily and with such pleasure, I didn't really ever want to let go of my time with Ethan and Pascale.

This is such a fun, interesting storyline. I love that the heroine is the protector in this one, and I maybe especially loved how easily Ethan accepted and respected that. The chemistry between these two was apparent immediately, and I was just as much a sucker for Ethan's easy charm as Pascale was - which made their unorthodox romance a complete delight to read.

I love reading Robin Bielman. She has this ability to just put a smile on my face from the first paragraph. Sweet Talker is the standalone second book in Robin’s American Royalty series.

Ethan Auprince is definitely one of my book boyfriends. He is seriously a total dream. Pascale Nichol is a woman of principle. It could be said that she takes things a little too seriously. In Sweet Talker, these two will embark on a second chance at romance where the stakes are h

Sweet Talker by Robin Bielman is the second book in the American Royalty series, but it reads as a standalone book. There’s really only one thing I have to say about Sweet Talker. I loved this book soooo much!

When Pascale is secretly hired as a bodyguard for a charming restaurateur in the public eye, she had her doubts about working to protect a man with whom she shared a past love story with a tragic ending. But as luck (and life) would have it, a second chance at love is what these two had bee

Sweet Talker is the second book in The American Royalty series where the big brother of the family reunites with his first love. This story is sweet with sexy scenes and jokes that only this author knows how to make which makes the book even more adorable.

Ethan is an owner of one of the most famous restaurants and when he gets to meet his new manager, he doesn't expect to find the one who got away. Pascale was the love of his

Robin Bielman is back with the second book in her American Royalty series and if you are looking for the perfect pool or fireside read, then your searching is over. This is it!

Brace yourselves readers for another Auprince hero in Ethan that will melt your hearts and leave you wishing these brothers were real. Sigh.....

But it’s not just the drool worthy hero you should pick this book up for, Pascale the heroine is a kickass chick who I adored. I kind of want to be her when I grow up. 😏

A second chance romance that I loved from the first page. Ethan Auprince might be a bit entitled, but he’s a real decent guy at heart. He loves his family and his friends, his job is his life, oh, and he’s not looking for a serious relationship. Until SHE walks back into his life again. The one that got away, his one true love, Pascale “Callie” Nichols. What he doesn’t realise is that she’s been hired as his bodyguard. Sweet, funny and sexy, with a little bit of angst.

I loved this second chance romance! Robin Bielman never fails to keep me turning the pages with her books and Sweet Talker was no exception!

Pascale and Ethan had great chemistry and you just knew they weren’t going to be able to resist each other for long! Something unexpected happens in Pascale’s life though that impacts their future together and they both will have to decide if what they have together is worth the fight for their HEA.

A second chance romance that’s as sexy as it is sweet, Sweet Talker is a fast and easy read with great chemistry between the characters. Though it’s the second in the series, it can most definitely be read as a standalone since each book follows a different brother with a very different personality. This time, the focus is on Ethan, the charming restauranteur who is a bit of a ladies man. He’s happy with his life of wining and dining until a woman from his past resurfaces.

What would you do for a second chance at love with the one who got away? In Sweet Talker by Robin Bielman, the second book in The American Royalty series, Ethan and Pascale are reunited after about a decade apart. Someone is harassing Ethan, and his family - without his knowledge - hires Pascale to protect him. Pascale is an elite bodyguard but Ethan thinks she's just his new restaurant manager. Insert drama here.

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I loved this book! Robin wrote an awesome second Chance romance(one of my favorite genres). I read book one for my book club and couldn’t wait to be able to read book 2. In Heartthrob we met all the Auprince brothers. Sweet Talker is the story of Ethan and his soul mate that got away, Pascale. The 2 met 10 years earlier one summer when both were in Hawaii. They fell in love and Pascale disappeared.

Sweet Talker is one of the sweetest second chance romances I have read in a while. Do you ever forget your first love? Ethan never has; especially when she disappeared from his life without a word. Ten years later, Pascale suddenly reappears as his newest restaurant manager but why did she show up at his restaurant? Ethan is thrilled to have a second chance with the one that got away but Pascale has a secret and a tendency to run from her feelings. After a shocking surprise occurs, Pascale think ...more

I enjoyed Ethan and Pascale's story. I loved that she was the bodyguard, the one who was capable, and that it caught him a little bit by surprise. (There's a fabulous paintball scene that I am not going to spoil, but it was so much fun.) I also loved, without spoilers, that this really wasn't much of a story about one part of a couple keeping a secret, which is not always a favorite trope...it was, but, it wasn't, and I loved the way this wa

Loved!

Ethan and Pascale's story was a whole lot of fun. The secret bodyguard portion (love the gender switch there, BTW!) is over at about the halfway mark--the gig is actually up a little before that though, when Ethan secretly figures it out and OMG I love what he does there ;) The book takes a path in the second half that I wasn't at all expecting but ended up really enjoying, maybe even more than what was going on in the first half.

This is the first book I’ve read from Robin Bielman and I know it won’t be my last. I was completely sucked into Ethan and Pascale’s story. This is the second book in the series, however, it can be read as a standalone.

Im not sure what happened between these two books but I was so disappointed. It was missing all the things I loved about the first book. Ethan, a restaurant owner of one of the hottest places around who is hot and rich is being stalked. Although that whole stalker storyline is never really developed and left hanging. However,

Sweet Talker is the second, standalone book in Robin Bielman’s American Royalty series, and it’s a swoony and sexy second-chance romance. Ethan and Pascale had a summer fling ten years ago that left a permanent impression on both of their hearts.

Unbeknownst to him, she was contracted by his family to serve as an undercover bodyguard after he received a few thre ...more

This sinfully sexy book is second in the American Royalty series and it features Ethan and Pascale/Callie. I don’t think I’ve ever come across such a catchy and unique name. I love it! These two have a history that goes back 10 years. It’s been that long since they’ve seen each other. He’s been receiving some threats from an unknown, obsessed woman.

Loved this book. Ethan and Pascale are great together, and the story moves along well. The book is told in alternating first-person, and I enjoyed getting in to their feelings. Ethan is very hard to resist, and he's been in love with Pascale since they met in Hawaii ten years ago. She disappeared on him then, and he's determined to keep that from happening again now that he has a second chance. This can definitely be read on its own, but I am really looking forward to the third book.

I loved this book. Ethan is being stalked so his family hires a bodyguard. He also needs a new restaurant manager. In walks Pascale, his new bodyguard and manager, also his ex who ghosted him ten years ago. Loved the banter between these two, it’s sexy and funny. Love how Ethan is with Rylee too. Highly recommended.

So before I start, second chance romance is probably my least favourite trope normally, I avoid them but gave this one a go because I love this authors other books - and I’m so glad I did! I loved every single second of this book, I could not put it down. I love Ethan and Pascale and all of the other characters in the Auprince family! I cannot wait for Drew’s story!

A great addition to the American Royalty series. I was hooked from the start. Ethan and Pascale’s story gave me all the feels. Their chemistry, banter, low-times and love kept me reading long past my bedtime. Grandma Rosemary always makes me smile. I can’t wait for Drew to meet his match.

SWEET TALKER had me hooked from beginning to end, even though there was, in my mind, a division within the story that begins in one direction and then takes off in another. I understood it, I wished it could have been an easier transition because I could “feel” that first half of the book and then on to the second part. It worked for me, I saw no reason to drop my rating because of the plot twist. And, in some ways, we almost need that first half in order to really ge
