My rating: 1 of 5 stars

ARC provided by NetGalley for an honest review

Unrealistic and poor grammar. That’s what this book is. The smut scenes are cringe worthy-and not in a good way. The consistent use of “says/said” as opposed to using a thesaurus for different verbs in the dialogue gave the writing a stale vibe. There were surpluses of grammar issues. I found myself skimming sentences and just going through the motions of reading this book.

A Valiant Prince takes place directly after the first book. Anna, Logan and the rest of the royal family are left reeling after a bomb detonates in the palace. As they try to recover from injuries, they must also gather the pieces of who is responsible. Interpol and another intelligence agency are loosely involved with the investigation. Anna is made to be a better hacker/intelligence investigator behind the responsible party than a federal agency. Logan just fumbles through his mother’s long set aside documents, sees a picture, and puts details together. All the children are spread apart and supposed to be in hiding, but Anna and Logan choose to make a vacation out of it and go to the store and Niagra Falls…major tourist area…and if they’re royal wouldn’t somebody at least recognize Anna??? If you’re in hiding, you wouldn’t go to largely photographed areas because your picture could easily be found…
Also, do all these people do anything but nap? Every time they got in the car, napping!
And of course at the end Lara just happens to wake up…(insert eye roll)

The summary of the book sounds great, but don’t be fooled. Once you read the first chapter you will discover how wrong you were.

I genuinely did not like reading this book.
