Bad Boy Prince: A Billionaire Stepbrother Romance by Vivian Wood
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
disgraced by her father and his following suicide and another secret she hasn't told anyone about make her move away from courtland. going to college in the US is the way to go for Kit. but then she's called back by her mother. her "boyfriend" accompanies but being royal isn't an easy feat, all those rules and customs.
at the party she gets the biggest surprise of her life! her mother and rex father, the king, are standing close together. as all the children are called up on stage the surprise gets even bigger when the couple announces they're going to marry.
kit doesn't know how fast she has to get away to safe face, leaving behind her "boyfriend". rex finds her and his surprise is as big as hers when it came to their parents.
what neither expected is their old attraction is still simmering in the background. having been highschool sweethearts (in secret) kit is pretty convinced that should stay a secret, especially now with their parents tying the knot soon.
and yet things get even worse when a strange woman approaches kit and in no uncertain words claims her "boyfriend" has been cheating on her and has the proof. once more rex steps in and whisks her away.
her night over, her relationship over, kit only wants to get home and forget about all of it.
a day later rex runs into her at a club, the tingles traveling through his body proof that his need for her is still as livid as it was all those years ago, yet he knows he shouldn't act on them. not now she's back.
when he follows her outside and sees her arguing with her now "ex-boyfriend" in front of all the paparazzi he knows he has to step in, which he does. he just wants to keep her safe and away from the press.
little did he knows his valiant act had dire consequences. the pictures quickly found their way to the tabloids and of course his grandparents were all over them. their best solution was sticking kit unto his care 24/7, in his flat!
well, old flames and all that, you can guess these two can fight battle after battle, win some lose some but their attraction is winning overall.
sadly things don't go as smooth since her now ex "boyfriend" decides to start blackmailing kit with the secret she's kept for years.
will they keep giving in?
will the blackmail continue?
will kit come clean about her secret?
how will people react to it all?
it's called a stepbrother romance but honestly? it doesn't read like one, sure there are those little facts that almost make it one but the story itself and the characters surpass the genre. their encounters are witty, romantic, naughty and kinky. they show so many sides of themselves you can't help to root for them!

- I'm a rookie writer enjoying the flow of words sprouting out of my fingers. Sometimes it goes easy, at other times it's a real struggle. I love and crave any kind of feedback, good or bad. I write when I can, but a husband, two kids, 4.2 cats (aging from 15 years to 4 months) do take up most of my time. Yet I found the time to try out something I never thought I was good at. I started writing. I came to love it and enjoy the new friendships I've made with fellow writers I simply adore (well I like the writers, but adore their work *grins*)
