Über dieses Hörbuch

He's reckless, dominant, and deliciously dirty. This prince is no fairy tale.

Prince Ruben of Helgmøre is his family's greatest scandal, but the defiant royal won't change for anyone. He always takes what he wants, and his current obsession is Cherry Neita. The feisty beauty has no idea she's being seduced by royalty—until they're caught together in a compromising position. Oops.

All Cherry wanted was a night or two with the hottest man she'd ever seen. Turns out, that man is actually a prince, and now he needs her to play princess. Well, princess-to-be. The deal seems straightforward enough: one year as Ruben's fake fiancée, and he'll make all her problems disappear.

But the passion between Cherry and Ruben feels anything but fake, and their connection unearths devastating secrets. Can true love bloom from false beginnings? Or will this fairy tale end in a happy-never-after?

Contains mature themes.

Autor

Talia Hibbert

Talia Hibbert is a New York Times, USA Today, and Wall Street Journal bestselling Black British author who lives in a bedroom full of books. Supposedly, there is a world beyond that room, but she has yet to drum up enough interest to investigate. She writes sexy, diverse romance because she believes that people of marginalised identities need honest and positive representation. Her interests include beauty, junk food, and unnecessary sarcasm.

    I wanted to like this, I really did; although, I think I would have enjoyed it more if I had read it physically instead of audio. This narrator really ruined things for me. I understand that the intent was to make the Danish accents sound more authentic, but they were so much of a caricature that it took me out of the moment (not to mention that later on into the book, the narrator mentions Ruben's accent as "barely there"--this narrator absolutely ignored that lol). I also feel like the connection between Cherry and Ruben wasn't there. I don't feel like they had a reason to love one another. I really enjoyed Hibbert's Brown Sisters novels, so I will definitely continue to read more of her stuff, but this one just wasn't it for me.

    Didn't love the narration fro this book. That's the only thing I didn't like!! I love, love, love Talia Hibbert's strong female lead characters. I appreciate reading about and getting to know characters who represent people like me. There is everything to celebrating women of color who shatter the typical body types norms. I say YES to curvy, full-figured, confident, gorgeous bodies!! The ending seemed a little rushed. I would have liked to spend more time living in this world with Cherry and Ruben. Loved most everything else about this book, so much so that I re-read it immediately. 5 stars!!

    TW emotional, physical, verbal abuse. *. Sexual power play.

    It's a lot that I love these characters so much that I kept reading even though I found some of the content triggering. The steamy bits definitely pulled me out because of some personal PTSD but everything was consensual and enjoyed by both partners.

    This was very average. I had heard so much about the author after her other set of books started doing the rounds but I realised that a lot of people like it because it has a lot of Smut. I don’t really care much about smut when it’s so much so that that there is nothing to the story if you take out the smut. And that is the issue with the story. It cannot stand up on its own as there is barely any story in here.

    I loved this, and I’m finding that I need to read all Talia Hibbert books. This had a couple with amazing chemistry way before the fake engagement, characters with real backstories, and it was hot as hell.

    I really wanted to give this an extra star because I was thrilled by the diversity of this cast of characters, and it is always nice to see some body positivity as well, but man alive I really disliked this book. I suspect I might have made it to that 2-star rating if I had read the book instead of listening. I will get to the book, but I want to start with the narrator who, and I cannot stress this strongly enough, really needs to keep his day job.Every person in this book had a different accent. Not different voices mind you, different accents. Members of the same nuclear family who lived in the same house had accents from different continents. Alarmingly few of the accents coincided with the accents of the places they identified as the places they had lived their entire lives. But the worst were the voices of our erstwhile Prince Ruben and his grandmother, both of which were cribbed from Jim Henson. Ruben's voice was The Count from Sesame Street. Let's face it, even among his Muppet community his voice is extremely silly. I never wanted to know what the Count sounded like when he was having sex. Now I do. Is there Muppet fanfic? Never mind. I don't want to know if 50 Shades of Orange and Green and Yellow is floating around. Bottom line, The Count is not hot, and consequently (even if the writing had been better) Ruben was not hot. One extra note, it rankled when Cherry mentioned how perfect his English was, and that only when he got emotional did he betray the hint of an accent. As she noted this fact the reader was hearing a Transylvanian puppet. The narrator also went full-on Muppet when voicing Ruben's grandmother -- she was the Swedish Chef. Exactly. She was from the same place that Ruben's family was, a made up place, but something in or near Scandinavia. Bottom line, terrible narration made a story that I did not enjoy even worse.As for the story, my issues are legion but I will just mention a few.A caveat for the first one: There is perhaps nothing so wholly idiosyncratic as the things a person finds sexually appealing. From my perspective, these were some really unsexy sex scenes. The language was (I want to find a different word but I can't) icky. Also, I don't think the author understands power exchange. There is one scene where Ruben says something like "lay down and spread your legs I want to make you come with my mouth" (these are all paraphrases, but the meaning is the same) and Cherry says something like "what if I don't want you to do that?" and Ruben says something like "tell me what you want me to do and I will do it, anything." So, a couple of things. How on Earth does anyone see this as him controlling her? The control thing is made a big deal of, so this matters. Secondly, does Cherry's response seem odd to anyone else? It sounds like a mighty fine offer. I don't look for authenticity in my romance sex scenes, I actively want them to be better than authentic sex scenes. But the scenes here went to far and ended up being far less sexy than authentic sex scenes. Every sex scene is, like that, a negotiation. If that works for you fine, but when I was in law school I never felt a hint of arousal when reading "Getting to Yes." This is the opposite of hot to me, but of course YMMV. An extra demerit, they went for the "magic vagina" thing, with the constant marveling at how intercourse has never felt like that for Ruben. I like Cinderella fine, but once we leave the fairy tale we need to acknowledge that there would actually be a lot of women in attendance at any decent size ball with a foot to fit that slipper.Second, for no apparent reason the author spent a lot of time telling us about the not particularly interesting characters with whom Cherry worked. They were there to facilitate a meet-cute. They just needed to be random office workers. We did not need to know what they looked like and what they did in their spare time. We (blessedly) never see these people again after the first scene so why to we spend 30ish pages learning about them. I lost interest right at the beginning because these people were so boring and they were totally unnecessary. Once I lose interest in a romance it is hard to come back.Third, I can't figure out why these people would love each other. They were both a bit unappealing really. Both were very superficial in their romantic lives, they did not appear to be particularly clever, especially Cherry. They talked about the world like they had been reading a whole lot of Marianne Williamson. They were both predisposed to kindness. and that is a lovely characteristic, but its not so unique that it alone would lead to love.Fourth, and I know this will piss people off, I don't see how Cherry could have been attractive to everyone she encounters. I am cool with her not being hot but having a beautiful smile, but much is made of how dazzled people are by her beauty. She is overweight and pockmarked. I get and love that there are people who will see her beauty and radiance (and I say this as a fat person who is pretty comfortable in my body.) I loved that Ruben was attracted to her cellulite. But every person who beholds an overweight pockmarked woman is not going to be overcome with lust. That she is so sexy to Ruben is delightful, and I liked that, but its just not reasonable that someone so far outside the conventional definition of beauty in the UK and Western Europe (where all of these people live) would leave everyone she meets so hot and bothered.Fifth (and last for this review) the villains were just too over-the-top ridiculous. Ruben's sister and brother were like Boris and Natasha. I liked that the author delved into an abuse storyline, but it would have been so much better if those two did not spend their time making big trouble for moose and squirrel.Most people loved this. I am an outlier, but I stand by my review. If you are still going to read this, avoid the audio. Trust me.
