Book Review - Filthy Rich Prince by Lynn Raye Harris

ABOUT THE BOOK

He’s rich, ruthless, and royal. He will make her his wife…

Single mother Lily Morgan knows what it’s like to struggle. Not a day goes by that she doesn’t work hard to survive. But when she’s thrown in jail in a foreign country, she has no idea she’s about to come face to face with the prince who took her virginity and left her pregnant two years ago.

Nico Cavelli might’ve released Lily from his dungeon, but he’s not letting her go. She stole his son and heir, and he can’t forgive that. He’ll make her his princess - and he’ll make her pay for keeping his child a secret.

What he will never do is show her any mercy.

Or fall in love with her…

NOTE: This is a Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella romance with an alphahole hero who is transformed by love in the end. If you don’t like angsty reads with dramatic conflict, best keep scrolling! There will be some bad decisions. There will be bossiness. And there will be groveling by the end. You were warned. 

*This book originally published by Harlequin as Cavelli’s Lost Heir. It has been revised and expanded with new scenes and characters. If you read the original and enjoyed it, you don’t need to purchase this one. But if you want an expanded story, then this is the book for you. And if you’ve never read it, then you definitely don’t want to miss it! Rich and royal, reunion, forced marriage, secret baby romance!

REVIEW

This is a quick and easy read and if you enjoy this genre, the story is well done.  However, what I learned about myself is that I'm not really a fan of this genre of book.  I'll start with the Pros.  The story flows easily and is well written.  The dialogue flows naturally and the characters are well established.  While there is a lot of angst, it doesn't take over the book at all.  The Heroine is never sitting around thinking "woe is me" without trying to do something about it.

The Cons for me are that there really isn't any character development.  I mean technically yes the hero does go from being an asshat to a caring husband and father, but we never really see that happen, it just seems to happen overnight. I also feel like the heroine is fairly spineless.  She does try and protect her son and makes sacrifices to do so, but for major items like being forced into marriage, I felt like she just accepted it without as much conflict as it warranted.

Basically, if you like this type of book and genre, I think you'll love this book.  Lynn is a great writer and it comes through here.  If you don't like this type of book generally, you may want to pass.



OVERALL RATING - 4 STARS!
