Prince Albert is a royal prick.

He’s the most famous one on the planet – wealthy, gorgeous, and a notorious playboy. He’s also the most conceited, insufferable, arrogant man I’ve ever met.

Did I mention he’s a freaking prince? An actual, real life Prince Not-So-Charming.

He’s tattooed and pierced, too. Prince Albert has a Prince Albert piercing. That's right – he's pierced you-know-where. Allegedly. I’ve never seen it.

My mother is marrying a king. Being a princess is every girl’s fantasy, right?

Except that means Albie is my new stepbrother.

Oh, and one more thing -- I accidentally married him.

We’re keeping the biggest secret on the planet.

Ever heard the fairy tale about the Princess and her stepbrother?

Yeah, I didn’t think so.

I’m royally screwed.

My husband and I were chatting about the Prince Albert piercing (I think it came up in casual conversation? haha) and this book happened to cross my way around that time, so naturally it became a MUST READ! Shameful confession time! I just ACTUALLY JUST googled the piercing…like literally JUST NOW…why I didn’t do it while I was reading the book? No idea….just put it down to stupidity. Seriously, I read the book knowing that it was a piercing down there, but no visuals on how it actually looked! Anyhooooo, 6 months or so post-read and I finally have a visual….OUCH…Holy moly I can’t imagine the pain but uber KINKY!!!!

Prince Albert has a Prince Albert and he’s not afraid to use it or show it. His womanising ways are world famous and Belle ends up accidentally marrying him in Vegas while drunk and after breaking off her engagement. Belle’s mother is marrying a king who also happens to be Albert’s dad, which makes him not only her husband but also her future stepbrother! Yeap..this situation is totally crazy! How are Belle and Albert going to keep their fake marriage under wraps while proceedings for a real royal wedding are underway? A right royal scandal is definitely on the cards for these two!!!

Stepbrother romance? Hmm, I didn’t know how to feel about the trope, but seriously this situation was so totally absurd, I just HAD to find out what happened! Oh yes, let’s not forget THAT piercing also helped in my decision ;) Surprisingly I wasn’t too icked out by the whole stepbrother thing as I expected, so I could put that behind me but you know what got to me??? The word “LUV” used by Albert on Belle ALL the time! It put me off so much…here’s a 20 something-year-old talking like a perverted old man and I just could not abide it…Belle, as a character was confusing. She gave off mixed signals, appeared indecisive about her situations and was more submissive than assertive. I didn’t really pick up much on her personality except that she was a do-gooder, who is the polar opposite of the Prince but apparently good for him!

This book is totally over the top, crazy-ass, never-happens-in-real-life situations, so read it when you are in the mood for such ridiculousness otherwise the eye rolling might get a bit too much, especially when it comes to Albert :P. Sabrina Paige sets a fun pace AND has a VERY intriguing parallel storyline happening with Prince Albert’s sister Alex and her bodyguard in a separate story which comes free with this book! What a bargain! These tales do contain some serious kink, so don’t tell me I didn’t warn you :D

  • Sometimes I can be in the mood for the crazy and absurd books, but I am one of those romance readers that really CAN’T do step sibling romances, they just are way too close to incest for me to read it. But sometimes it can be refreshing to read those “out of the craziness of this world” type of books.

    • Yeah this was totally crazy and way out of my comfort zone too….I’m looking forward to reading the sister’s story though because it is promising to be a little bit more normal!

  • LOL! I could see myself grabbing this for the over the top crazy and because a Prince Albert piercing. I had to Google it a few years back when I first encountered it and did the wince and wow just like you. ;)

    • Hahaha I totally winced and cringed! Ouchies! If you want a read that’s totally unbelievable definitely grab this!

  • Well this is the book for me. lol I LOVE naughty piercings. Have a whole shelf on Goodreads for them. Noms! lol

    • Hahaha you will definitely enjoy this one then! Pick it up and let me know what you think ;)
