I've read a few of Claire Contreras' books over the years and I was excited to get back into her Naughty Royals series! I liked that Aramis and Joslyn knew one another and that there was chemistry between them. It was one amusing ride!

My job was to clean up his reputation and find him a wife.

It was supposed to be easy, but nothing about Prince Aramis was ever easy.

I was about to throw in the towel when he came up with a solution: I'd be his pretend girlfriend. Forget the fact that I was sort of seeing someone, or that I had no interest in joining the royal family. Once Aramis sets his eyes on something, there's no use in fighting him on it, besides, in a way it would make my job a little easier.

I accept the offer but set boundaries. Boundaries that Aramis is intent on testing. Before either of us know what's happening, the lines start to blur and I can no longer tell the difference between pretend and reality.

My job on the line is one thing, but losing my heart to Aramis was never in the cards.

It’s been a while since I read The Sinful King, and I was excited to be back in this world again. The Wicked Prince was an entertaining read, where Joss and Aramis didn’t always get along.

Joss was a secretary to the royal family and was currently Aramis’ guardian, making sure that he was on the right track and improving his reputation in the royal family. Aramis was known as the bad boy of the family but had settled as of late due to an accident that happened prior to this book.

I liked that both Aramis and Joslyn had some history between them before their feelings for one another began to grow. I enjoyed their banter, and the little fake relationship they had was amusing as well. They both had genuine feelings for one another but were unsure if they were reciprocated. There was a twist thrown in, which made it interesting, but they both worked hard to find their happiness.

I enjoyed meeting others in the family, and how their lives were heading. I am curious about Pilar and Benjamin’s story, so I may have to pick that one up to see how these two got together. I really enjoy Contreras work, and can’t believe that it has taken me so long to get back into this world!
These two were amusing together. I liked how cheeky Aramis was to Joss!

“I think this is the first civil conversation we’ve ever had.”
“We have civil conversations all the time.”
“Do we? I feel like we’re always arguing.”
“You call that arguing?” He smiled. “I call it foreplay.”
My heart skipped. “I prefer my foreplay to be a little more physical.”
“I can arrange that.”
