The Prince’s Game is the first book in the Mershano Empire Series by Lexi C. Foss. This story is a wonderful, erotic contemporary romance and is quite different from Ms. Foss’s other book ‘Blood Laws’, which is a paranormal romance. I absolutely loved Blood Laws and couldn’t wait to see what Ms. Foss did with this genre. I wrote in my review for Blood Laws that I was struck by how amazingly talented Ms. Foss is- as she truly has limitless creativity and imagination. Now having read this book as well, I am again in awe of her impressive talents. Ms Foss is on my “Must Read” list and both her books are on my favourite reads list.
Sarah Summers is a 31 year old marketing director from Chicago who has found herself the unwilling victim of her twin sister’s prank. The prank has resulted in Sarah being cast as a contestant on a reality dating show called ‘The Princes Game’. Sarah is livid with her sister, especially since she has discovered that there is no way to get out of her predicament, or off the show, without being eliminated. So that becomes Sarah’s escape plan- show enough disinterest and hope that the billionaire bachelor eliminates her in the first round. That shouldn’t be too hard, since he will have 29 other beautiful women fawning over him- he won’t want to keep the aloof, uninterested, sarcastic and somewhat feisty brunette. Then she meets the charming, sexy and cheeky bachelor and she’s not only intrigued, there’s also a small part of her that secretly hopes that she’ll be chosen to stay.
Evan Mershano is 35 years old and is the billionaire bachelor for this season of The Prince’s Game. He is the hardworking CEO of his family’s hotel empire and is happy living his single, jet-set lifestyle. He most certainly isn’t looking for a girlfriend, let alone a wife and children. But Evan’s controlling parents want him to settle down and produce an heir- so if Evan wants to remain the head of the company and keep his inheritance he will need to play along, for now. Problem is that he is expected to choose one contestant, at the end of the season and propose to her. With 30 beautiful women all vying for his heart and most of them only really interested in him for his wealth- he really will need a miracle to get him out of this stressful situation. His fate seems sealed. Until Sarah captures his attention.
Evan quickly realises that Sarah isn’t like the other girls, and she doesn’t want to be there anymore than he does. So he makes her an offer that she just can’t refuse. His proposal is that if Sarah stays till the end of the season, and then refuses his proposal- he will finance Sarah’s dream of owning her own marketing firm. So Sarah agrees and the games begin.
As the story progresses, Evan and Sarah find that their bargain isn’t as straightforward and uncomplicated as they had envisaged and there is far more at stake than they realised.
I loved the sexy, flirty feel of this story. It is very seductive and I became completely engrossed in Evan and Sarah’s delectable story. Their volcanically hot chemistry, coupled with their fun, friendly, flirty and very witty banter made for a really entertaining read. The supporting characters were really wonderful too; they added an extra element of interest and produced threads for future instalment in the series.
Another superb and truly unforgettable read!!!!
I am going to be jumping on any other books from Ms. Foss, as soon as they are released
Thank you Ms. Foss!!!
