When he kissed me, I was shocked. He was a stranger and still so familiar. It wasn't until I woke up to my picture splashed on the cover of tabloids that I realized I knew who he was.

Prince Alexander of Cambridge.

Royal bad boy.

Exiled heir to the throne.

He isn't Prince Charming. He's controlling. He's demanding. He's dangerous. And I can't say no to him.

We both have secrets—secrets that could tear us apart or drive us closer together—and as the paparazzi exposes each one, I have to decide just how far I'm willing to go for King and Country.

For readers 18 and up due to mature, erotic scenarios.

Formerly titled For King and Country

I've been a bad bird. This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years old due to its use of sexual content, substance use, and/or violence. Come be a bad bird with me!

At A Glance

A 5 star read but I have seen this concept before.

The Good

Royals!!!! We have hot princes, evil kings, stuck-up princess, and so much more. I love me a good drama filled royal family. And Geneva gave us that in spades.

Clara reminded me of me. She focused on her degree and didn’t get caught up in the drama or dating. That’s how I got through college. I wanted to savor and excel in my education, romance could come later. Once Clara graduates though, her life changes forever. She accidentally catches the eye of the bad boy prince of London. He’s all shades of effed up, but she can’t resist his magnetism and sexually aggressive nature. She craves it, even when she doesn’t know it.

Alexander is cocky and damaged. He’s honest about it though. He knows his way around a women’s body, but has no use for the heart. He is almost obsessed with Clara from the start. He sees something different in her and craves every part of her, especially her submission.

Both characters have messed up pasts that still affect them today. Talk about sad stories. Alexander’s family is just horrible. They treat Clara like shit and revel in it. It was hard to read about. But Clara does well sticking up for herself. We get a cliffhanger at the end, and it’s killing me that I don’t have the second book to read.

The Bad

While reading it, this was a 5 star book. But after a day to think it over, it felt a little like all the other eroticas/romances where the rich guy likes the average pretty girl but he has demons so he can’t really love her. I am getting a little tired of the same plot. Though this has princes and such, so it was a little bit of a change.

I sometimes hated Alexander for not sticking up for Clara more often, or at least standing by her.

The Snuggly

Alexander was a tough nut to crack, but I loved him and Clara together. They were so bad yet so good for each other. The chemistry was AMAZING. We get hot, heavy, raunchy sex. A little BDSM too. It’s between adult and erotica.

Final Thoughts

If there was more originality to the plot, this would have been a 5 star book. I was obsessed the whole time I read it. Couldn’t put it down. Highly recommended.


“You asked if I would hurt you, Clara. I can’t lie and say that I won’t. I want nothing more than to strip you bare and pin you to that wall. Hold you there until you beg from my cock. And when I finally give it to you you’ll beg me to never stop.”


“I’ll never take you further than you can handle, but I will take you to the edge. I will give you more pleasure than you ever thought possible.” 


“Alexander intoxicated me. Without his touch, I forgot how to breathe. He had become the center of gravity I returned to after being stretched past my limits.”

      I swear, it didn’t even bother me while reading the book so it’s not too bad. .

    To read or not to read? I’m the one who doesn’t do to well with anyone being mistreated or disrespected in some way. Especially, from rich snobs who think that they are better than everyone else in the world. My feelings get hurt a lot. I don’t care if these are fictional characters. And these are royals, you say? I don’t know yet but I added it to my wish list in case I change my mind. Great review BTW.

    It says a lot about it that you loved it so much even though it felt like overall it had been done before. Story lines can get so played out, genre by genre, but I’m glad this one was well-written enough to become a bit addicting and hard to put down!

    • Jennifer Bielman

      Yeah, it was soooooo worth it. I didn’t even notice the used plot until afterward.

  3. Christy

    Yeah, I get tired of the same trope, but when the author can turn the same ol’ trope into a really good story, then it makes up for it. Mmm raunchy. Me likey.

  4. Melliane

    I like the idea of the story even if I’m not really into erotica. A little curious about this one now. I’m glad you had a good time! thanks for the review.

    This one sounds really good. I love the romance tales that take place with the royals in any era. a lot of the historical romance i read is always in england or a similar place and they are always royalty.
    i agree sometimes we need to see the uber hot dude standing up for the normal gal he loves. i mean if he loves her then screw what everyone thinks-especially if he’s that influential & important.
    the cover is nice too. i love the red soled heels (can’t spell the name for the life of me)
    thanks for the review!

      Yeah, this is in England, but obvious in modern times. it was fun to see a dark side to the royals.
