It’s no secret that I’m a massive fan of Robin Bielman and I’ve been chomping at the bit for youngest Auprince brother, Drew’s story. And it was sooooo worth the wait because Robin created magic between Drew and the lucky lady to steal his heart, Alejandra.

With a strong engaging story and a chemistry which was perfection, Drew and Alejandra’s romance was paced to create that delicious build-up—sweet and passionate with a small side-serving of

5 - "I’ve said it before… I’ll say it again. I like the way you think." Stars!

The American Royalty series comes to a close in outstanding style with AuPrince Matriarch; Rosemary firmly setting her match making sights on youngest grandson Drew, with his older brothers settled and happy with their women, he is in her cross-hairs of love, and there is nowhere to hide!

After briefly meeting in a night club nine months previously, Drew is more than happy to see the woman who has plagued his dreams eve

What can I tell you about this book?
* It's the final book in my American Royalty series but can be read as a standalone. (In case you want to binge read, the first two books are Heartthrob and Sweet Talker.) :)
* It's a slow burn romance
* There's some forced proximity
* My hero is outgoing and sexy and determined and may or may not intentionally drive the heroine crazy when he walks around in nothing but a towel
* My heroine is sweet and smart and loyal and feels a bit feveri

Hot Shot is the third book in Robin Bielman’s American Royalty series, but it works perfectly fine as a standalone novel. I find such isn’t always the case, but it was here. I have not read any of the prior books in the series, and I understood this one with ease. I am now curious about the prior books, though, as what we got to see of the characters from those books has left me wanting to find out more.

With Hot Shot, we have a story that sucked me in from the very first page. I find I prefer ro

An adorable page-turner! Bielman is a master of crafting the perfect blend of swoony and sweet romance. And she has certainly done it again with HOT SHOT! A clever combo of tropes--a second chance romance and fake relationship with forced proximity--sweeps Drew and Alejandra together like they were destined to be together. Absolutely adored watching these two fall for each other! Not to mention the funniest grandmother ever. Full of humor, heart, and smoldering heat! Highly recommended to lovers ...more

A delightful blend of heat, heart, and humor - Hot Shot is the perfect capstone to the American Royalty series.

And I am forever in love with the Auprince family.

Yes, all of them.

Maybe even mostly Grandmother Rosemary who is a scene-stealer extraordinaire and brought many laughs along the way. I loved her role in this story particularly. I loved how she bonded and connected with Alejandra. And mostly I loved how #goals she is because if I can be half as fun as her someday, my life will have been

Alejandra and Drew are what you might say, fated to be together. From their first meeting, down to the very last page of their epilogue, it was obvious they were meant for each other. And I loved every single page of their story. It's fun, sweet and laugh out loud funny, especially when Drew's grandma is on the scene! I haven't read any of the other stories in this series, but you can bet I will be downloading them now.

Hot Shot by Robin Bielman is a beautifully written, sweet, heartwarming and very entertaining read.

I enjoyed the storyline, it held my interest from start to end, I enjoyed all the characters. I loved seeing the previous couples again and I loved the family dynamic they all shared.

Drew and Alejandra are likable, passionate characters that I easily connected with and I loved watching them get their second chance at love, with a little help from one of my fav characters Grandma Rosemary.

Robin Bielman is one of my favorite authors. I know she's going to make me fall head over heels in love with her hero and heroine. I knew from reading the previous books in the American Royalty series that I would love Drew. I just didn't know how much.

Drew Auprince is known as American royalty. His family is known for running extremely successful hotels nationally and abroad. Of the three Auprince brothers, Drew is the only one to go into the family business. But instead of just working for hi

I haven't read the first two books in this series but it really didn't matter as it works fine as a standalone.  

This is a second chance love story with major decisions to be made by Alejandra, and both her and love interest Drew are wonderfully written and developed, though Drew's grandmother, 80 year old Rosemary, is probably my favourite character! 

Expect lots of laughter and tears, mishaps, questions and misunderstandings along the way in this enjoyable romp.  I predict that if you haven't d

Loved this book and series. Drew and Alejandra were worth the wait. A perfect couple with plenty of fun and sexy times. Adding in the angst and banter will have you laughing out loud. But it was Rosemary, Drew's grandma who stole the show. I wish we all had a grandma like that. I just hope I'm still having fun at that time. It proves family is so important. I highly recommend this story along with the rest of the series. ...more

Drew is the perfect package as he is successful, sexy, sweet and would do anything for those he loves. He was captivated when he met Allie months earlier even though he only spent a few hours in her company but now that she is in his hotel, he isn’t about to let her escape a second time. Before she has a chance to say no he has her commitment to attend his matchmaking Grandma’s birthday party.

HOT SHOT by Robin Bielman is book Three in the American Royalty Series. This is the story of Drew Auprince and Alejandra Cruz. I haven't yet read the previous books, so for me this was a standalone book. Drew and Alejandra happen to meet and hit it off but she is on a break from her boyfriend of several years. So she of course walks away but not to long later they meet again with Drew is waiting to meet his grandmother for their schedule meal. When he spots Alejandra he goes to speak to her and ...more

4 Star Review of Hot Shot (American Royalty #3) by Robin Bielman

Robin Bielman is a new author to me. This is Drew Auprince and Alejandra Cruz’s story which I found to be well written and entertaining. A story that was funny, hot and spicy with chemistry that you could almost feel.

Although book three and the last in the series, it can be read as a standalone, although having said that, when time permits I will go back and read the other two books.

Bielman is a favorite of mine because she holds nothing back. Her stories are all heart. Why should Hot Shot be any different? Drew and Alejandra leap right off the page and into your heart. He's a charmer. She's at a crossroads. Neither can let go of the connection they share, but something is holding her back. Never one to be deterred, Drew has a secret weapon that lights up the canvas with her saucy personality and mischievous ways. Rosemary is the the real deal when it comes to investing you ...more

So it is time for me to say good bye to the Auprince family and I have enjoyed everyone one of them, however I think that the first story is my favorite and besides Grandma whom we love and love all her antics, Chloe is my favorite. That said I did like Alejandra and was happy that she and Drew got to reunite and get to know each other in there time. Don't want to give anything away but that this was a nice way to say good bye and to reconnect with the family..Enjoy!

Robin Bielman pens the third and final book in her American Royalty series with exceptional warmth, flair, humor, and toe-curling sexiness. Drew Auprince and Alejandra Cruz in HOT SHOT are not only adorable together, they set the pages on fire with their romantic chemistry. I couldn't help but fall in love right along with them! And Drew's scene-stealing grandmother is more than capable of charming anyone who crosses her path -- readers included -- with her adventurousness, hilarious remarks, an ...more

Robin Bielman really knows how to write the sweet, sexy, fun & swoony romances! This series has been great, and I loved Drew & Alejandra’s story! The chemistry was strong between these two! They were a very fun couple to read about and Drew is definitely swoon-worthy 😉

I also have to give a shout-out to Drew’s Grandmother! She was a wonderful, witty, loving character that was such a pivotal part of their story. She rocked! I also love the tight family bond between the Auprinces.

Loved loved loved this book! Drew was hot and muscley and so cute! I liked him out of the three Auprince men. More down to earth.

To be honest Alejandra got a teeny bit on my nerves at the beginning because she was such a goody two shoes. The she loosened up a little bit and well she bloomed!

Favourite character is Grandma Rosemary. Hands down! She’s a feisty one that one!

I always enjoy reading any book by this author. It’s simple. It’s cute and hot at the same time and the characters are awesom

I really enjoyed this sweet story!
Alejandra has recently broke up with her boyfriend when she first sees and is attracted to Drew. Too bad he had to momentarily leave her and then she leaves the bar. Fast forward 9 months and they meet again.
Kismet, right?
It was meant to happen.
He pretends they have been dating and then BAM! We have the makings of a good love story.

This is book 3 in the series, but it can be read on its own since each story is about a different couple.
I highly recommend it!

One night, Alejandra meets Drew in a bar. She can't take her eyes off him. Unfortunately, she has to leave before they really get a chance to get to know one another. Nine months later, she meets him again. And, this time, he's not letting her out of his sight. Unfortunately, she's not quite ready to get involved with him.
